Shiseido Event

On Wednesday "Grace With Love Blog" took to the road for my first official blogging event! My Mother and I thoroughly enjoyed the journey from Carlow to Dublin to attend an exclusive Shiseido cosmetics, skincare and fragrance information event. Shiseido is a  Japanese brand founded by Arinobu Fukuhara in 1872. Today Shiseido is a global brand with over 46,000 employees found in 80 countries worldwide. Did you know that the luxury Shiseido brand has been in Ireland since 1992?

Shiseido literally means "praise the virtues of the earth" and their ethos reflects sharing beauty through art, culture and design.The company certifies a pledge to beauty, the arts and the environment through their product range, Shiseido Gallery and Shiseido Earth Care Project. The high quality and luxury of the Shiseido cosmetics, skincare and fragrance is instantly what attracts me to the brand. My first encounter with Shiseido was my rendez-vous with their beautiful floral Ever Bloom fragrance and after Wednesday's event I have high expectations for testing out more of their collection! My mother and I both wore Japanese print outfits on the day as an ode to Shiseido.

The Japanese are known world-wide for their total respect and dedication to skincare. A recent consumer study in Japan revealed that women spend an average of 10 minutes every morning on skincare alone between cleansing, toning, applying serum, moisturiser, suncare and makeup base. Having said that I have never witnessed a Japanese person with blemished skin in my they MUST be on to something! There are different Shiseido skincare ranges targeted at people in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s as well as both a male and female product collection.
