What is the difference between the refining moisturizer and the refining enriched moisturizer cream from the ibuki line

Asked by: Trang
Hi Trang. The main difference is texture. The Refining Moisturizer is a lightweight emulsion, while the Refining Moisturizer Enriched is a cream.

I am 80..wrinkles, dry, I like the way Shiseido Ibuki Refining Moisutrizer but is this the best for me. Anything with sun block? My daughter bought me Urban Environment UV Protection 40 but I don't like it. Too heavy. and too white. Xmas suggestions

Asked by: SHJR
Hello. If wrinkles and dryness are your concern, we recommend the day and night cream from our Benefiance line. However, if you like the lightweight fluid emulsion texture of our Ibuki Refining Moisturizer, we recommend you try our Benefiance emulsions. https://www.shiseido.com/skincare/collections/benefiance/ For sunscreen, we recommend Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42, which has an ulta-light texture: https://www.shiseido.com/urban-environment-oil-free-uv-protector-spf-42-9990000000141.html

Is this a anti-aging moisturizer?

Asked by: Myind
Hi Myind, we do not recommend using this moisturizer if your main skin concern is anti-aging. We recommend trying Benefiance Extra Creamy Cleansing Foam instead.

Can I use this also in the morning?

Asked by: Diana
Hi Diana, yes, Ibuki Refining Moisturizer can be used at night and during the day. We recommend applying SPF, like our Urban Environment Oil-Free UV Protector SPF 42, on top of it during the day.

Refining Moisturizer is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bring back my moisturizer! I have tried the alternative moisturizer that Sheseido recommends, but it is no way near Ibuki! Please bring it back!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Heartbroken I switched to the Ibuki Refining Moisturizer two years ago and have loved it. Nothing else works quite like it. Then I learn that it has been discontinued. This is terrible. Why mess with perfection? Please consider relaunching this skin care line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from If it’s not broken don’t fix it! WHY is the Ibuki refining moisturizer discontinued???! Your sales people tried selling me something “like” it but there’s NOTHING like Ibuki! Your Benefiance line is too thick; and other facial lotions are greasy for my skin type. I hear the decision to discontinue this product has to do with new management. BAD DECISION. I’m going elsewhere for my skincare needs. And in the meanwhile, I’ll be buying up the remaining Ibuki moisturizers from online retailers. Very disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great evening moisturizer I received the Shishedo Ibuki set as a gift in 2015 and I remember loving this moisturizer! It made my skin very soft. Due to the price, I didn't replace the bottle after I used it up. I was thrilled when I recently found the moisturizer on half off at TJ Maxx and had to buy it! It still works great but I've only been using it at night. Lately my skin has been more oily when I use this under makeup. I suppose this could work well as a day moisturizer for someone with very dry skin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Can I use this one for daytime? This is good for night time use. I use this moisture for day time and it is so oily on my face . But overall, I like it . I used with Ibuki cleanser and that work well on my skin. I will buy ibuki softner for getting perfect ibuki skincare line.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A nice moisturizer, nice fragrance. A nice, fragrant moisturizer to use after shower, but not under makeup. I use this moisturizer when I'm staying home for the day and not putting on any makeup.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! I have "mature" skin that is still acne prone. I've used this moisturizer and the companion softener for years. I love the way it absorbs and leaves my skin feeling so soft. My makeup glides on. The smell is fantastic too! Best of all, we live in a very hot, humid climate. Moisturizers can feel to heavy, as if I'm wearing a mask in the heat...not this one! It's just perfect! A little goes a long way so a bottle should last a long time.
