Shiseido Night Moisture Recharge Review

I have been using this nighttime moisturiser for about three months now. It may not have been the best time to start using this, since it feels more appropriate for winter, but I still love it! Instead of using it daily as I probably will during the cold season, I now use this about three times a week.

This moisturiser is a dream come true. I wake up with an even complexion and glowing, velvety skin! It hydrates deeply, yet there is no greasiness whatsoever. It has a very lightweight texture that gets instantly absorbed by the skin. In fact, if you're going to stay at home for the day, or feel like you don't need sunscreen, this can totally be used for daytime.

Besides from hydrating, I've also noticed the littles lines around my eyes and mouth are going away, so it's a wrinkle corrector too!
As for the packaging, the pump bottle is very convenient and sanitary, and I like that you get to see how much is left thanks to the glass bottle. I love the scent too, it's a light fragrance that feels calming and refreshing.

This is my favorite night moisturizer at the moment, and I couldn't recommend it enough!

Besides, we Hong Kongers are so lucky when it comes to cosmetics. This same moisturiser sells in Europe at more than 50€, and in Australia at 75$. This is more than double the price in Hong Kong!

Price: Official retail price in Hong Kong HK$310. In Sasa: $235. In Lung Shing (龍城大藥房
): $219 (cheapest in town)
Overall Quality: 5*
Value for Money: 5*
Would I recommend it? Hands-down!

For your info, in case you don't know Lung Shing, it's a cosmetics store with the best prices in Hong Kong, and it's always PACKED! It's located in 28 Granville Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui.


  1. Great post. I use the same one, but the light version, cause i have a little bit a shiny skin.


  2. that's a great product, I've been using this lately and I have to agree with you, it's incredible, my skin's so soft thanks to it! : )
    actually I've been thinking about Shiseido Haircare cosmetics, have you tried these maybe?

  4. Hi Olivia!
    Great review!
    Thanks for your sweet comment!
    I'm following you back on gfc and bloglovin.

  5. Glad to hear you like this product! My mom got me into Shiseido, and I absolutely love it. If you're looking for a face wash that's really good at removing makeup, you should test out their Foaming Cleanser in the light blue tube. It's amazing! :)

    You're really pretty, by the way! I'm envious of your flawless skin.
