The scent was such a shock at first but it kinda grew on me. The balm itself is mediocre as it didn't have any lasting power and wasn't moisturising enough. I probably will not invest in it again in the future.
I've used better toners, I look for toners to soften my skin and allow it to better absorb moisturisers. This toner didn't do that to me but it was pretty good either way. Unfortunately my skin is quite dry lately but I can't attribute that to the toner. It does it job and I may repurchase in the future.
It probably isn't the best lip gloss I've tried, and doesn't have a lot of staying power, but I do like how it looks when I first apply it. It doesn't do enough in terms of moisturising my lips but it's a gloss not a balm...don't mind trying this again one day in the future.
I loved the smell of this product. It's pretty awesome. However, I needed to re-apply it throughout the day to stay fresh so it wasn't that useful for me.
Only had a sample of this but it made A LOT of difference on my eye area! My problem is that the eye area is very dry, and no product seemed like it would be able to help. The sample maybe lasted for about two weeks and it was great, and I could feel my skin soften! Definitely purchasing this!

I'm really on the fence about this product. It was alright, I like how it felt on my skin. And my skin hasn't had any problems while I've been using it, but I do feel that I've used scrubs that I liked better. It did feel pretty gentle which is maybe why I didn't like it as much.

There was nothing wrong with this cleanser in my opinion, it did everything just fine. No drying or flaking, or really anything. But it seemed pretty average for its price. I've used other Shiseido products that I liked better. So I won't be purchasing this one again.

Mine is the body butter. The scent is not too bad. Not one of my favorites but I don't hate it either. Smells quiet fresh. The butter however fell below expectations. Not as moisturizing as I would have liked.
People could always smell rosewater on me after use used it, but I only smell the alcohol! A bit harsh for my skin, stings a little when used and broke me out. Not getting it again.
Although it smells amazing and has a really soft texture, my skin did not get along with it. A bit heavy and I feel is not being absorbed very well, my skin is dryer than normal yet at the same time I am suffering breakouts and clogged skin which isn't at all normal. It might not be the reason for all my problems but it's simply not moisturizing enough!
It was okay. It made my skin feel tight, not sure if it's supposed to do that. It smelled great and made my skin soft but just didn't like the tightness I felt.

It dried my skin out a lot. My skin went crazy, it would be dry some parts of the day then really oily others. Broke out a bit, too. Don't think it suits my skin type. Will most probably not buy again.

This is one one my favourite toners, it's unfortunate that the best toners I used where ones that can't be purchased where I live. It's such a great toner. Very refreshing, and its scent is too light for me to even detect. And it softens my skin a lot.

Might be a tad strong for my skin, there weren't any problems after use but I just didn't like how it stung.
I enjoyed this lots. Very pleasant scent, product felt light, helped my cleanser do its thing, no irritation, dryness or break-outs. Great product!
