Since my face gets really dry during the winter season, I found this to be nice with soothing my irritated dry skin. I like to put 2 pumps on a cotton round and then smooth it over my skin. It makes my skin feel very nice and clean without a tight feeling. This hasn't caused me to break out and it makes my moisturizer go on very well.
It smells just like baby oil and it is a pleasant without being to strong. During the summer months I don't see myself using this just because my skin gets super oily and I like to use an alcohol based toner instead.
I wish there was a maybe option for if I'd re-buy this because I really don't know. I don't seem to be going through it very fast and I've had my bottle for about a month and a half and I have a little under half left. This is another one of those products that can benefit you a lot or just be another product taking up time in your skin care routine. Since it is alcohol free, if you have super oily skin, you might want to opt out of getting this because it most likely won't help with your oiliness and possible make you more oily.
gentle, alcohol free toner, keeps face fresh and clean. helps moisturizing lotion go on smooth! beautiful sent!
Great Product!!! I use this product along with the cleanser and matifying moisturizer. It helped me achieve a healthy skin. Many people will think this isn't needed and that you can skip this step but its actually really important. Its what prepared your skin for the moisturizing step. I would definitely buy this product again
This is an excellent product. I have very oily, sensitive and acne prone skin so I loved the fact that it's alcohol and oil free. It's very gentle and I can even use it around the eye area. It has really softened my skin without making it oilier. It's cooling, hydrating and soothing. Even though my skin is oily, I still feel dry and taut at times and I find that this softener really helps.
I have combination skin and I have gone through all types of toners including Clinique, Lancome, Clarins and Estee Lauder. This is by far the best one I have tried. It works well for combination skin; yet, no alcohol. It is a very gentle toner that gets rid of oil and balances the skin.
Perfect toner for my breakout-prone skin. Has improved the texture of my skin within 1 month of usage, will continue to use but so far very happy with the results so far!
This softener helps me from the drying effect caused by the deep cleansing foam. Products for oily skin tend to have drying effect. If all of the products have the same oil-control power, you can imagine how dry your face will be. The good thing is that Shiseido provides this softener to soften the skin. So, this softener really helps, and since I have dry surfaces on both my right and left cheek, the SA told me to use this less on the T-zone area, but more on my cheeks.
I will definitely repurchase this. :)
it doesn't work for me at all but irritated my skin. Bought in in the States and used for a mild winter of 14 celcius and it dried me out like anything.
Then I moved to a hot and humid weather and nothing improved. I gave up half ways, half of bottle was in garbage can.
I've only been using the pureness line for about a month now and have noticed a huge difference in my acne prone skin! I use this softener after the foaming cleanser and the combo of both products have cleared up my skin and made is less oily without over drying I will for sure keep using these products
I buy this product for my husband to use. He's got really oily skin but after washing his face with cleansers, it also gets very dry. I've asked him to apply one layer of this daily and it seems to have helped both with the excessively dry or oily condition he gets!
