Trying to decide which skin lightening product to use can be a difficult under taking so we did one of our in-depth reviews, examining the ingredients, clinical research, side effects, and customer quality reviews.

How the Product Works
Shiseido Bio-Performance battles the first stages of line formation and revitalizes the skin’s tone. Over time skin can become discolored and dull, adding years to someone’s appearance.
This cream is made with Shiseido’s patent-pending Bio-Revitalizing Complex, which reinforces skin’s elastic fibers, the key to promoting skin’s resilience and firmness.
The key ingredients are water, glycerin, cyclomethicone, butylene glycol, dimethicone, cetyl octanoate, squalane, dimethicone copolyol, disteardimonium hectorite, hydrogenated C6-14 olefin polymers, PEG-150 and PEG-60.
- Product Speed
- Long Term Results
Given how expensive this stuff is, you could imagine the disappointment when you only get 70% of what was claimed in the description.
Side Effects – Possible Irritant
This cleanser contains not just one form of PEG, but two. Often times PEG compounds contain small amounts of ethylene oxide. According to experimental results reported on in the National Toxicology Program’s Eighth Annual Report on Carcinogens, ethylene oxide increases the chances to develop uterine, breast cancers, leukemia and brain cancer.
Texture – No Residue
Shiseido Bio-Performance does leave the skin feeling slightly softer to the touch, but it coats the skin with a ton of polymers and silicones. The reviews on Amazon are mostly positive, excluding those who suffered from oily skin. It doesn’t really tackle the underlying condition when it comes to the signs of aging. It goes on easily and is a decent moisturizer, but is on the expensive side.
First of all, for the price, Shiseido Bio-Performance Advanced Super Revitalizing Cream isn’t advanced when compared to other moisturizers found out on the market. It does contain several key ingredients such as silicone, glycerin, fatty acids, and squalane, which are helpful for dry skin. The company claims that it contains antioxidants, but most of these will not survive the packaging. The silicones and fatty acids might make skin appear more youthful, but there is no revitalizing going on with this cream.
The Bottom Line
There are a few factors that would make this cream low on the list of lightening and brightening products. To start, the description is a bit misleading, stating that it is .23 pounds of product. Usually that means its’ the cream inside the jar. In this case, you will actually be receiving a much smaller jar than what’s advertised. Given how expensive this stuff is, you could imagine the disappointment when you only get 70% of what was claimed in the description. As for the product itself, it contains far too many cancer causing ingredients. There are other products on the market that are safer.
