I would like to discuss start from the light texture, the emulsion is used after toner and smells really good. Like blends of fresh flowers. Easy to be used and absorbed by the skin. Due to it’s nature (travel size packaging :D) I’m only reviewing for a week of usage. The serum may be used twice a day (day and night time). It was able to gives my skin a light hydration and light smoothing effect.

The deep lines after a week usage are still there but the finer one looks more relaxed. No allergic reaction, no stickiness, the skin remain calms and look radiant. Reading from the product details it seems like they have so many benefits in one item but surprisingly feels so light and friendly on my skin.

The white emulsion for me like an all in one solution for complexion, hydration and smoothness. What can I say? Another high quality product from Shu Uemura not to be missed.
