Review : Shizens Time Resistance Essence


One and a half month ago, Shizens launched their new Time Resistance Essence in Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. To be honest that was my first encounter with Shizens skincare range and I was pretty excited to find out what is it all about as I have been hearing so much about them. Inspired and infused by bountiful natural ingredients, Shizens offers a wide range of products, from make-up, skin protection to skin care, all created to revive and nourish natural beauty. 

If you didn't know Shizens is a our Malaysian local brand but the skincare are formulated in Japan. And yes I love Japanese skincare so I'm really interested to see how it really flares.

Before the launch officially start, we were entertained by attractive dancers... oh they are just so good!

Ms. Ashley Tan , Deputy General Manager of Shizens Malaysia shared that Shizens Time Resistance Essence is a firming skincare product that helps women to realize their dreams of keeping skin firm and supple throughout the day while performing their daily tasks. 

Shizens Time Resistance Essence focuses on nourishing, firming, moisturizing and brightening the skin. 

Let's see what Jojo Goh, Shizen's Ambassador has to say about this Time Resistance Essence. And I also found out one of our friend Celeste is one of the first few to try out and she also shared her testimonial here.

I was glad to be given a full set of Shizens products to try out and that includes the latest Shizens Time Resistance Essence. After trying out for a month (yes that is how long I used to try out skincare!) I am happy to share my views on Shizens skincare products here.

As you can see from the picture, Shizens products come in white with gold cap design, very simple yet classy. The product names are clearly displayed in front of each bottles with description on the back. This is rea

My review on Shizens Hydro Cleanser
I usually pumped out 2 times before applying a small water to form the bubble before gently massage on my entire face. After that I rinsing my face, I felt my skin is smooth and comfortable. It is great that the cleanser does not give me the drying pulling sensation after cleansing. And what I like most is the scent, very pleasant which makes me feel relaxing while cleaning up my face. 

As you know this is facial cleanser and not makeup remover hence if you put on heavy or waterproof makeup, it is advisable that you remove your makeup with proper makeup remover before using this facial cleanser.

My review on Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion
After washing my face, I pump out the Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion from the bottle. I prefer pump bottle like this for lotion as it is more convenient and it would reduce wastage too as I only pump the amount I wanted. I can either apply directly using hand or apply or facial cotton pad. Personally I would prefer to use cotton pad first to apply (as double cleansing) to make sure no residue is left on my face before I apply my other skincare. After that I would pump a little more on my hands and pat on my face gently to allow the lotion to penetrate deeper into inner layer of my skin. As the lotion texture is watery, it is very easy to absorb into my skin. I immediately felt my skin is smoother and more hydrated. 

Shizens Hydro Enhancing Lotion scent is very pleasant like the cleanser as both are from the Hydro range. 

Shizens SHUI 50ml - RM288 / 180ml – RM588

My review on Shizens SHUI 
I been wanting to try this ever since they launched this last year as I have heard many good reviews about this as some has referred this as miracle water. Shizens Shui comes with a screw cap instead of a pump, I used this right after my lotion before my essence. This Shizens SHUI can be applied directly using hands or cotton pad, but since it's so precious (i.e expensive) I would prefer to use my hands to apply it using dabbing motion. After applying, I felt my skin is so much more hydrated and smoother (like baby skin!). I felt the essence absorb better after I applied SHUI and skin is smoother and plump up too when I applied SHUI before essence. Love this product, smell good and works really well... hence highly recommending this!

My review on Shizens Time Resistance Essence
I warmed up my hands with 2-3 drop of essence before I applied on my face for better absorption. Usually I took a little of my own sweet time to massage in the essence until it is fully absorb. After using Shizens Time Resistance Essence for a month, I felt my skin are hydrated and can see in the picture that my face is more firm. Was really glad to see my skin texture is smoother as my pores appeared to be smaller. Overall my skin colour looked more even and brighter now.

My review on Shizens Replenish Nutrient Expert 
I applied Shizens Replenish Nutrient Expert moisturizer as my final step of my skincare in upward motion to achieve firm skin texture and enhance skin’s resilience. For better result, I also warmed up my hands before applying on my face. This moisturizer is pretty light  and it absorbs pretty fast leaving the my face smooth and  in fact I barely feel the product is there. As I stayed in air-conditioning most of my time, my skin is very dry and this moisturiser manage to keep my face hydrated all day long. And at night time, I am more generous with the amount that I applied on my skin because I sleep in air-condition room. Don't forget to apply on your neck!

Even when I was in Bangkok earlier last month where the weather was so warm , this moisturiser managed to keep my skin calm and hydrated. Remembered to apply sunblock on top of this during day time to protect our skin from harmful UV rays.  


As you can see I am pretty happy with all the Shizens products sent to me, let me show you my before & after picture to further show you the evidence how well it works on my skin!

Surprisingly my skin tone is more even and brighter now even though I just came back from my holiday from Bangkok and Boracay Beach. I was under the scorching sun all day long and I thought my skin going to be flaky but no in fact my skin was behaving really well! This showed that my skin has locked down the moisture hence it is properly hydrated! 

p/s: My face didn't get darker because I was slapping sunblock every few hours!

Up close picture

You can see my pores appeared smaller and my laughing lines appeared visibly reduced because my skin is more firm up after using the Shizens Time Resistance Essence for a month. Amazing right!
