Meet The Shiseido Revitalessence Skin Glow Primer - Your New Makeup Obsession

What do you get when you combine some of the best natural skincare ingredients in the world with 150 years of skincare science? The perfect base for your face! Introducing the Shiseido RevitalEssence Skin Glow Primer the newest member of the RevitalEssence family.

What makes this product so spectacular? It’s powered by the same level of skin care as the Shiseido serum. Two potent prebiotics, Fermented Kefir+ and Niacinamide fuel the skin’s ability to maintain a healthy microbiome for a healthy and vibrant glow. In just one week, fine lines are visibly reduced and bare skin appears smoother and brighter. Designed to work in synergy with the RevitalEssence Skin Glow Foundation, this silicone-free formula creates the ultimate canvas for makeup by locking in moisture to the skin for 24 hours. Use it to keep your foundation looking fresh and prevent products from settling into pores and fine lines, or wear this weightless primer solo to boost radiance and the skin’s barrier. 

This skincare-active primer is a true hybrid product that delivers real results that can be seen with and without makeup,” says James Boehmer, Global Artistic Director of SHISEIDO Makeup. “It produces an instant, incandescent glow and refines skin’s texture as if you’ve just finished a facial treatment.” 


Featuring hero ingredients such as fermented Kefir+, an antioxidant and prebiotic made from Japanese rice harvested in Hokkaido. It works together with Niacinamide, a form of vitamin B3 that smooths, evens tone, and strengthens the skin’s barrier. Dermatologist tested and suitable for all skin types, this non-comedogenic formula does not contain silicone, alkyl sulphates (SLS), parabens, artificial dyes, oxybenzone, fragrance, mineral oil, or talc. 


Use your fingers or a brush to blend a pea-sized amount from the centre of the face outward for instant radiance and a soft-focus finish. After applying foundation, add this primer to the tops of cheekbones, the bridge of the nose, and the cupid’s bow for maximum glow.
