Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel is alive or potentially that weird jelly-mold thing from Better Off Dead! I haven’t decided yet. Summer is still here if the weekend was anything to go by! 90 + degrees, plenty of sun, and just the right weather for Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel because this lightly hydrating moisturizer is ideal for warm days and oily skin.

Here’s a look!

I dunno what it is but I have a thing for memory foam-like skincare and makeup products. Shiseido Ibuki Multi Solution Gel is a lot like Illamasqua Hydra Veil in the fact it magically retains its shape (I suspect it might be alive!).

This soft gel-like moisturizer bounces back to shape after you scoop a small amount out. I just want to sit around and play with it all day rather than put it on my face. It’s ideal for those with oily skin or anyone prone to acne and breakout in need of a lightly hydrating moisturizer that isn’t oily or greasy. It’s my go to Summer moisturizer because it provides light hydration and wears well with SPF. It actually contains Salicylic Acid which I shouldn’t be using because I’m dry and blemish-free but I never felt like it dried my skin out, so, I’ve used it and repurchased it numerous times.

The green gel has a light, refreshing fragrance and the formula absorbs easily into skin and leaves behind a smooth, soft surface for foundation and makeup. I like it because it doesn’t create unnecessary shine and isn’t a rich, creamy consistency that makes my skin too dewy or greasy. Mind you, this isn’t something I can get away with in the Winter but in the Summer it works a treat as it is a light, refreshing gel moisturizer.

I’m just waiting for it to get up and slide away from my vanity at some point but until it does I’ll use it happily on my face on warm, Summer days!

What’s your go to gel moisturizer when it’s hot out?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    My go to gel right now is Kiehls. But I’m with you Muse, I love these squishy jelly things. I have a serum from Tatcha that does this and I get such a kick out of opening the jar and it looks like it’s never been touched. The crazy things that make us smile, right?

    I’ve never seen Better Off Dead, I need to see that film! John Cusack looks so young in that, didn’t know he acted in the 80s. First time I saw him was in Point Grosse Blank. I love the Ibuki sleeping mask, this looks fun!

      are you kidding? LOL! How old are you? 😉 He was an 80’s pin up! Better Off Dead, Sixteen Candles, Stand By Me, One Crazy Summer (with a young Demi Moore), there’s more I’m sure but these are my favorites 😀

    I’ve seen Stand By Me and Sixteen Candles but didn’t click that he was in them! Need to go back and see them again, which is never a bad thing lol. I’m 39, but there’s still loads of 80s stuff I haven’t seen, I was more of a 90s teen tho I was a 80s child :-D.
