This moisturizer together with the softener really helps me to reduce my acnes. I stopped using the gentle cleanser because it clogs my pores and causes more giant acnes. Let me tell you, don't use it as a day moisturizer... It can cause you to get cystic acnes. It happens to me. When I only use it at night, my skin so much better than before...

I bought the Ibuki kit from Sephora containing cleanser, softener, moisturizer for $25 about one month ago. I was having a small breakout on my forehead and thought that this kit might be the answer to alleviating the breakout. Well, I think my skin is in even worse condition now with more zits on my forehead and this massive cystic one on my chin. I'm really bummed because I haven't had this kind of acne since I was in my teens. I'm pushing 40, so now I have wrinkles and acne (wracne). It's awesome. The Ibuki products feel great on my skin. I like the feel of my skin after using the Ibuki cleanser. It feels a lot like Lancôme's Creme Radiance cleanser; gentle and clean. Not too over drying. The softener and moisturizer feel light, but with my oily skin and t-zone, I am left with more of an oily mess at the end of the day. I really wanted to like this skincare line but am quite disappointed and wouldn't recommend this to people with oily skin or acne prone skin. I am going to try just using the cleanser and see if there are any improvements. At least the sampler didn't drain my entire bank account as would the full size products.

I received a deluxe sample size of this with my last Sephora order. I'm almost out of my current daytime moisturizer and was hoping I'd like this enough to purchase a full-size. Nope.

It's a lightweight moisturizer that sinks in quickly, doesn't make me feel greasy or break me out, but THE SMELL! It's so heavily fragranced like perfume I just can't take it.

I also don't care for the packaging. The deluxe sample came in a small tube with a large, bulbous screw-on cap. The opening for the product to be dispensed out of is medium sized but I have to tap it on my hand for any product to come out. You can't squeeze the tube because it's hard plastic, so it's not user-friendly at all.
