Shizens Hydro Cleanser and Enhancing Lotion


Shizens Hydro Anti-Aging Skincare Regimen (part 1)

Well, this is totally new to me. I’ve never tried any Shizens product before, not even their very famous mascara or lip products. Not that I didn’t want to try but I guess I’m more comfortable with brands where I can do beauty shopping at my own pace and time. When I have really made up my mind to purchase a certain item from a brand’s beauty counter, yes, I do approach one. Or when I was doing competitor checks while I was still managing skincare brands. But, most of the time, I prefer going around and exploring different brands and products myself with less intervention from beauty consultants until I ask for it.

With special thanks to Shizens, I had the opportunity to try some of their products and what I’m about to share is a revelation. I do respect the brand but I wasn’t quite sure if the products are suitable to me...before.

Shizens Hydro Anti-Aging Skincare
Shizens has an anti-aging skincare range, the Hydro Series, which combines hydration and anti-aging. I had 4 products to test and try: Hydro Cleanser, Hydro Enhancing Lotion, SHUI and Replenish Nutrient Expert.

Being a skincare addict, I’m one of those people who are particular in making sure that the first step of the skincare regimen is done right. I don’t compromise on cleansers; my cleanser should have the efficacy to thoroughly remove dirt and yet good enough to nourish my skin.

Shizens Hydro Cleanser

Shizens Hydro Cleanser comes in this beautiful gold and pearl colored bottle (you might have noticed in my previous posts that I have a weakness for gorgeous packaging). I love the color combination that makes an elegant statement. The bottle itself is a double layer of white and clear acrylic, with highlight of gold pump and gold strip on the removable cap. Pretty gorgeous, isn’t it?

The cleanser product itself is a shimmering gel with tiny reddish micro-beads if you look closely (you can’t see it here, though). With addition of water, it turns into light foam that spreads nicely on the face. I really fell in love with this item; it has a feel of soft cushion on my skin while I was massaging. And after rinsing, it leaves a smooth, lovely feel on my face, almost “babyskin-like”. There was no dry or stinging feel, just soft and tender. The scent of the cleanser is just mild and pleasant to the senses.

Shizens Hydro Cleanser removes dirt and impurities without stripping off the skin’s essential moisture. It helps in increasing the moisture level of the skin to make it hydrated, healthy and radiant. It is gentle, non-irritant and suitable for most types of skin. 

How to use the Hydro Cleanser:
Pump a pea-size amount on your palm. Add a bit of water and rub between your palms to create light foam then gently massage all over the face. Rinse thoroughly. (For those who use heavy and waterproof makeup, like me, it’s best to use a makeup remover/ cleansing oil or lotion prior to face cleanser)

Shizens Hydro Cleanser price: RM158 for 100ml

Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion
Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion also comes in the same gold and pearl color bottle as the cleanser. The pump makes it easy to dispense just the right amount of the product on a cotton pad. You also have the option to use your hand to apply this on your skin if this is more convenient or comfortable for you.

The lotion product itself is a clear fluid with water-like viscosity. Like the cleanser and other products within this range, it has a mild, pleasant scent that does not linger. It is easily absorbed in the skin and does not leave any sticky residue. My skin feels clean and refreshed after applying the lotion.

Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion serves as a second cleanser to further cleanse the face for better absorption of following skincare products. It works to repair skin cells and decelerate aging of the skin. It contains anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties for youthful skin.

How to use the Enhancing Lotion:
After cleansing your face and wiping it dry, dispense the lotion on a cotton pad or on your palm. Pat gently all over the face. Apply day and night.

Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion price: RM188 for 100ml

So that’s the Hydro Cleanser and Enhancing Lotion. After applying these 2 products, it’s time for Shui and Replenish Nutrient Expert. For purposes of not making this post too long, I’ve split it into 2 parts. To read on about Shui and Replenish Nutrient Expert, click HERE and discover Shizens results on my skin within 7 days.
