I love this lotion! I have dry/dehydrated skin that gets really flaky whenever I wash or even wet my face. I feel like this lotion really hydrates from beneath (lol) rather than coat the top of the skin. I use this under matte sunscreens and at night alone, or under another cream for extra moisture. The texture is a translucent runny lotion that is scentless. I like how it's transparent, so light, and goes on so smoothly. There is a slight tackiness left on the skin for a few minutes afterward, but it doesn't bother me. Fantastic product, I will definitely repurchase.

Translated from the back of the bottle:
INGREDIENTS: water, ethanol, glycerin, squalane, soy milk ferment, soybean seed extract, soybean protein, beeswax, stearic acid, cetyl alcohol, glyceryl stearate, arginine, sodium stearoyl glutamate, carbomer, sodium polyacrylate, butylene glycol, methylparaben.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE: After toner, place a proper quantity (1 yen coin) on the palm of hand, and rub into skin gently. You may also use liquid foundation every day.
