I have a few favorites in the Shiseido product line, and I’ve been aware of this major Japan-based brand since my twenties, but I tend to forget just how long Shiseido has been around. This year marks Shiseido’s 140th anniversary. In honor of the occasion, the brand looks back at its history (enjoy this illustrated timeline!) and has issued a limited edition of Eudermine Revitalizing Essence, one of its oldest (and best-selling) products, in a facsimile of its original 1897 bottle.
I’m planning on making “5 on 5” a regular feature for the 5th of each month; sometimes it will feature beauty products, sometimes other things. My list of beauty basics seems like a good place to begin. These are all items that I’ve purchased and repurchased over the past few years; they never let me down.
