Essential step for skincare
Quick Take: lightweight, hydrating, refreshing, nourishing
I discovered Softening lotions when I worked for Shiseido 25 years ago. I haven't worked for them in over 22 years so this isn't an employee endorsement at all. Morning and night I use this - in the winter I will substitute Benefiance softener - after cleansing in the morning and in the evening. Sometimes I don't even need to follow with a moisturizer. It makes any product used after go further, so you use less.

great product!
I love this... but it did make my skin super oily! I was shiny and it looked like I was always sweaty. Good for dry skin. I'm an oily person.

A Sephora consultant talked me into this! I actually have never used a toner and she recommended this softener which tones and moisturizes! Something I definitely need in colder months when my skin dries out and flakes. I definitely noticed my skin is more plump and moisturized!

My skin has been less irritated and more moisturized with this added into my daily routine. I use the full shiseido skin care line every day including their sunscreen and my skin hasn't broken out once and my wrinkles are diminishing. Love it. Doesn't smell strong either.

my all time favorite
This has been one of my main staples in my skincare routine. I change toners as I run out, moisturizers as new ones come in, and especially facewash! However, I found this a couple years ago when they first came out with the Ibuki line, and after washing my face and using toner, I will add a drop of my Sunday Riley Luna oil into this softening concentrate and pat it onto my skin. Followed by moisturizer and a night cream. In the morning, same routine except I add a drop of my UFO oil in. When I don't use it, I can feel my skin getting irritated which leads to more acne and bumps. This helps calm my skin down and gives it some moisture so that my skin feels baby smooth! Constant staple in my routine. I love it
