AN Synchro Skin Glow, by Shiseido it is a fluid foundation with immediate luminous effect and properties that hydrate the skin in the long run. One of the main points is its natural effect, that is, it will seem that you didn’t use that much make up. All this in addition to the product adapting to your skin color and texture. Shall we understand better and see if it really works?
WHAT IS IT MADE OF?
Despite the moisturizing effect, Shiseido’s Synchro Skin Glow is a cosmetic product for coverage. That is, there are many ingredients to meet all requirements. Do you know those complicated names and what people always try to escape? They are present in the composition of the base, but there are super known components that balance!

GLOW AND NATURAL EFFECT
Synchro Skin Glow, by Shiseido, is a foundation with a glow and natural effect. Which brings many advantages and negative points in relation to matte coatings. Among the advantages are a more fresh and alive, coverage of lines, pores and spots. Make no mistake: it covers smoothly, but does not completely hide the expressions or leaves with an opaque effect. There is also an emphasis on the shine Natural, giving the impression that it is a more hydrated and healthy skin.
What is not so good (but it can be balanced with some adaptations) is the duration of the skin and the coverage. Really the glow effect base will not cover very strong spots, very marked spots or darker dark circles. For this it is necessary to use other products, such as corrective, or accepting some skin tags. a fixative of make up it will also help to let the foundation last longer. It is worth mentioning that Shiseido’s base lasts around 8 hours depending on the climate and skin type.
In São Paulo, where we don’t have as much humidity as beach regions or a climate as dry as Brasília, and on my (mixed) skin, this is the average duration. In the summer it lasts a little less because of the humidity and sweat, but nothing that a powder or fixer does not solve.
HYDRATION AND UV PROTECTION
And nothing better than moisturizing and taking care of the skin while using make-up, right? The natural ingredients in Shiseido’s Synchro Skin Glow work by preventing the skin from losing water and hydrated skin longer. In addition, the product acts with antioxidants and constantly renew cells.
The base also has protection solar with factor 20 and takes care of this important point that we often forget, right? Of course, if you need a bigger factor, it can match the protector you already use.
HOW TO USE
It is important before using any cosmetic product to understand what your skin type is and what products it works best with. However, despite being a product moisturizing and glow effect, the foundation works well on any skin type. Those with drier skin will experience more immediate hydration effects. Already people of oily can use in a smaller amount of the product or combine with powders or leaving to use on drier days. It will all depend on the effect you like on the skin – and that’s super personal.
The application can be done with a brush or sponge, but it is also strongly recommended to do it with the hands.
