I want to use the Japanese skincare routine for my face but am unsure of the order in which to use the products especially skin softener and essence. Please can you advise

Asked by: London gal
Hello. After cleansing skin (oil cleanser first to remove makeup, followed by foaming cleanser to remove dirt and impurities), follow with softener, sweeping over the face with a saturated cotton pad. Next, apply Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate before your serums and/or moisturizer. As a final step, always apply an SPF during the day, such as Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector.

I love the light scent of this cleansing oil.  I am very sensitive to scents (many causing instant headaches).  I would love to purchase a scent that is similar to the one in this oil; but cannot seem to find one like it.  Any recommendations?

Asked by: Leah
Hi Leah, we are happy that you enjoy our Perfect Cleansing Oil! Unfortunately, we do not make any fragrances that have a similar scent to this formula. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

i am currently using the gentle cleanser in the AM and doing a double cleanse in the PM (cleansing oil + gentle cleanser). it seems my skin feels dry after i cleanse in the morning. is it more beneficial if i use the cleansing oil instead in the AM?

Asked by: Colleen
Hi Colleen, we typically recommend using Perfect Cleansing Oil at night to remove dirt and makeup. We recommend that you use a cleanser in the morning that will preserve the moisture in your skin, like our Waso Quick Gentle Cleanser, followed by a hydrating moisturizer like Waso Clear-Mega Hydrating Cream.

Do I need to use face cleansing foam after Cleansing Oil? thanks

Asked by: fransis
Hi Fransis, it is not necessary to use an additional cleanser after using Perfect Cleansing Oil. However, if you have a specific skin concern, it may be beneficial to use a cleanser targeted for your concern after using Perfect Cleansing Oil.

I use the "Ultimate Cleansing Oil" to remove my sunscreen every night.  I am a guy so I don't wear makeup.  I received this as a small sample when I purchased my Shiseido Men products.  Will this be effective as well or should I just use the blue bottle?

Asked by: Mike
Hi Mike! If you are using cleansing oil to remove sunscreen, we suggest sticking with Ultimate Cleansing Oil, since it is specifically made to remove water-resistant sunscreen.

Perfect Cleansing Oil is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 88.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from The shiseido perfect cleansing oil is definitely made for more dry skin types. I tried this with hopes that it wouldnt strip my oils and all it did was leave a thick film over my skin even after rinsing with water. After a few hours my skin was overloaded with oils, I felt like a complete oil slick. For the price point, I wouldnt say this product is worth it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love this product and have went through 3 of these already! I have combo skin so this will make some areas of ur skin dry but it works really well to clear acne. i try to use this 3 times a day - morning, after school then before i go to bed - in the mornings i use the cleanser and apply lotion afterwards to help the dryness. i don't moisturize at night btw. but u should really try this product out if ur willing to look past having dry skin (only if u don't moisturize or exfoliate often) but ppl w oily skin should be fine. i do recommend trying the cheeks n balance frothy face cleanser from origins first bc i started out with it and noticed it helping my acne a lot. but after a while, i just needed something stronger for my acne and now my skin is clear for the most part. but rlly, the choice is up to you and everyone's skin is different. tho i do suggest u purchasing any of the origins products bc they work wonders and last long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVEEE! Ive been using this oil for 5 years now and still planning to keep on using it. This is so gentle on my skin yet so effective. Price is a little bit on the higher side but its worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a very good cleansing oil that I use for double cleansing. After I cleanse with the oil I will move on to another cleanser to further take off all makeup and debris from my face. This oil will not take off all makeup so I suggest using a makeup remover prior, but it is great for conditioning your face and making it softer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was saving money to buy the Multiple in South Beach for a long time and finally got it. I prefer having a few nicer makeup products that actually do something, to a whole bunch of cheapo stuff that doesn't work. It's excellent. I'm pale skinned, and you can work the bronzer color up from very light to fairly dark. I use it for contouring, it looks like a beautiful natural, slightly shimmery tan that gives my face a healthy glow. It works as an eyeshadow, too, and stays on the eyelids all day. A couple of cons are that it only dries to powder on bare face, i.e. if you use it over foundation or concealer like I have to do, it will remain sort of creamy and can be wiped off fairly easily plus dust will stick to your face:-))))) if you don't watch it. It rubs off the lips almost immediately, too. Otherwise, excellent formula and really amazing colour.
