shu uemura skincare review

My skin has a history of playing up. For a very long time it couldn't decide if it wanted to be dry, oily or something in between. After years of acting like a first class twat however it seems to have seemed to settle quite happily in the combination/dry camp. I've also had trouble finding skincare that works for me.
Shu Uemura was a Japanese make up artist who's philosophy for woman's beauty was rooted in beautiful skin - and after falling in love with the cleansing oils I was really looking forward to trying out some of the other skin care goods the brand had to offer.

Line Reducing Eye Essence: "Eye essence" now doesn't that just sound all kinds of luxe? That said...I'm not quite sure what else I can say about this cream. I'm 23....there isn't a lot of line reducing to do just yet. It's got a lovely gel texture and is very light and soothing. It's a brilliant cream and I would say it brightens my eye area more than anything. I've been using it for a few months and I'm quite fond of it. £40 is a bit steep for an eye cream for me...but it's lasted well. Maybe one for when I get a big fancy job eh?

Deepsea Water in Rose
: I have to say this isn't really one of those ESSENTIAL skin care products for me. Shu Uemura's Deepsea Water's are nice and come in mint, rose, lavender, rosemary and fragrance free. They act as a refresher to your face to help hydrate and fresh up you're make up. It is a nice enough product - and the rose deepsea water I tried was especially nice, it's one of those things that's great for you skin. However it's £16.50...maybe one for the die hard Shu fans but I'm afraid to say I wasn't completely sold on this guy.

Cleansing Beauty Oil: The idea of putting oil on my face pretty much sounded like the worst idea possible. It just sounds like the complete opposite of what I'd want in a cleanser. That said I popped in to the Shu counter and was sorted out with a wee mini sample of the cleanser. You apply it dry to your face, rub it in, then wash off with water. It dissolves your make up a treat and turns in to a milk as you rinse it off leaving your face feeling super clean and hydrated. It acts as a cleanser and eye make up remover and doesn't strip the natural oils off your skin. It is the single best cleanser I have ever used in my life. The oil does last for ages - but if you are still unsure (150ml is £28) pop in to your nearest counter (House of Frasers if you're based in Glasvegas) and ask for a sample. It's one of their best sellers for a reason. I find the green tea oil works best for me.

Deepsea Hydrability Moisturizing Emulsion: I've got the softest of spots for a good moisturiser. The Deepsea Moisturizing Emulsion is a gorgeous moisturiser - almost more like a serum and lovely and light. It is not something I would recommend for the winter as I need something quite heavy duty during the winter months - however it's perfect for the Summer months and for post gym when my skin can't take anything too heavy. It's got a beautiful texture - though probably best if you're on the oily/normal side of the skin camp.

Overall Shu are a great brand - while the brand isn't the cheapest you pretty much get what you pay for here. The packaging is nice, simple and minimalistic - occasionally they do collaborations with artists with limited edition bottles which are always fun. If you're going to go for any of the products here go for the cleanser - but if you've got a bit of dollar to spend and still a bit concerned about if the brand is right for you get yourself some samples.

Also...a big old thank you to the amazing Emma Q for making me a blog header featuring some Miles Aldridge and Tim Walker. She's a star....and recently started her own blog....def one to watch.


  1. I also tried the cleansing oil and it's really great. It dissolves make up really well, yet gently. X

  2. I'm really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a nice blog like this one today..
