A joy to apply every night!!

I truly love this product! I am not loyal to any skincare brand or product, since I enjoy trying new ones. But even though I want to test other ones, I most probably will come back to this one (this is a serious commitment coming from me!). I have combination skin (slightly oily T zone, and very dry cheeks) which is also sensitive. I have a hard time finding nighttime skincare that I truly enjoy. I want it to be hydrating enough for my cheeks, but at the same time, I hate going to sleep with a greasy feeling on my face. I first tried this product as a sample (it was not even on my list of products I wanted to test out) and fell in love immediately. I had to rush to buy a full size. It is very lightweight, but at the same time you can feel that this product is quite hydrating for an emulsion. I tried this along with the day version of this product (which I love as well) and my skin looks great since then. Dehydration wrinkles are less visible, skin is more plump with a natural glow. If you have very dry skin, this might not be strong enough for you. But except for that, I think this would be suitable to almost all skin types. I usually switch to more hydrating products during winter, and with this one, I don't even feel the need to. I don't have anything bad to say about this product. I have a feeling this whole Benefiance range in Shiseido is very good quality. « less

Good but only for very dry skin

I would have to say this is a good cleanser, but only for extremely dry skin. This cleanser is creamy and silky and feels nice on the skin and cleanses well. HOWEVER, it is extremely rich and will make your skin oily. I have combination/acne prone skin and this stuff made me break out like crazy in my oily zones. Most people do not have very dry skin so this will likely make most people's skin greasy. On the plus side, the dry areas of my face were glowing and nicely hydrated, so again, if you have dry skin, I would highly recommend this for you. user

This whole line is fantastic. I have dry, blemish prone, uneven skin tone skinned, but since starting to use this product just over 6 months ago my skin has drastically changed. This line is aimed at young skin that is prone to blemishes so if your like me this will help lessen and maintain blemishes and acne and it has the added plus of being gentle on your skin, unlike a product like proactive. This product of course needs to be used in conjunction with the softener and the moisturiser and I would even recommend getting the spot treatment too. Its not expensive compared to some of the other brands and each product should last for 7-12 months depending on if you use it just night or day and night. In the 6 months since using it my acne had decreased, my skin tone has evened out better and my skin has gained back a lot of moisture. It also smells so nice ! Less

Pleasantly Surprised

A while ago - maybe a year or longer now - I got a shiseido kit with this, the super restoring eye cream, and some other items. Obviously I haven't been very quick to start using them. At night I vary between applications of benzoyl peroxide for the acne that just won't go away, followed by nights that I just apply a serum and moisturizer (usually something by Caudalie) to heal my skin that is especially dry and sensitive after the acne treatment. I am always a little wary of moisturizers because my pores clog so easily, and my skin is so delicate and easily irritated. In any case, this was the last product from that little Shiseido collection that I tried, for several reasons: 1. The bottle it came in made it very difficult to dispense product - though the full size may be better. 2. I didn't know what to make of it. It has a kind of watery consistency, and it's neither toner, serum, nor moisturizer. I read it was supposed to be applied *after* moisturizer. I assumed it was kind of a gimmick. But, a couple of nights ago I tried it for the first time, assuming it would be worthless and I could just throw away the bottle. No. Never. Oh my gosh. It works for me so well. My skin's texture and tone is healthier. It's probably not actually changing fine lines, but the fact that it helps keep my skin moisturized and plump minimizes their appearance I think. Maybe it is a little preventative? My pores aren't clogged. My skin is soft and looks so much... calmer? It has a more youthful inner "glow" without that fake light-diffusing sheen or the plasticky mask of some products. I am shocked that I've been hoarding this little gem for so long without realizing how effective it can be. Ingredients-wise, I want to second-guess myself - looks like it's basically glycerin, mineral oil, a 'cone, wax, preservatives and fragrance... But there's no denying how much better my skin both looks and feels. When I run out, I will probably have to invest in the full size. Recommendation: definitely apply moisturizer BEFORE this. The mineral oil will act as a layer to protect that moisturizer and let it sink into your skin. I've read some negative rumors that it can pull moisture from your skin, but if you put moisturizer on first, this shouldn't be an issue. « less user

Convinced Now

I was so hesitant to buy this product because of the price as compared to Clinique and others but I decided to give it a shot. Unbelievably, the only reason I came to the website was to buy it. I had no idea that I'd like it that much. I've experimented with practically every different brand there is and even tried samples of high end products $200 and up. What a surprise to see this work wonders. I use this in conjunction with Kiehl's Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser as I shower to get the pores cleansed and exfoliated. The combination of both is amazing! If I put the Kiehl's alone it doesn't work as effective as if I add this cleaning foam. It's a very rich, thick lather with much bubbles and foam with just a small amount. It's going to sound strange but this lasted me more than 2 months. It totally cleansed my face and removed all the dirt that make-up and pollution leaves. When I pass a cotton with the toner it comes out clean unlike other soaps. And my face is not dry or dried out. It's refreshing, like putting on a facial mask. I definitely recommend this for combination skin, oily skin and dry. I had much acne as a teen even taking Accutane but this soap is mild, does not cause a break out, or leave skin tight. It's just right. My skin is renewed, fresh, and clean without over stripping the skin. « less
