thank you. with my purchase of the treatment softener, i also purchased the ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate, benefiance wrinkle resist24 eye cream and essential energy moisterizing cream. in which order should they be used?

Asked by: jeannie
Hi Jeannie. Glad to hear it! After cleansing, sweep the Treatment Softener over the face with a cotton pad. Next, apply Ultimune Power Infusing Concentrate. Follow with Essential Energy Moisturizing Cream, and apply Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Intensive Eye Contour cream after. We hope you enjoy your new Shiseido skincare routine.

since this product is discontinued, what is the best alternative and how does it compare? for the same results, should we use the Treatment Softener or the Benefiance Softener Enhanced?

Asked by: jeannie
Hi Jeannie. For the best alternative, we would recommend the Treatment Softener. You will find it has the same great softening benefits but is enhanced with InternalPowerResist technology, to help strengthen inner skin defenses to protect skin from signs of aging and external stressors.

Wow, the recommended replacement is double the cost.....This is getting pretty annoying.

Asked by: LukeWarm

Can I use this without using cotton pads?

Asked by: Diana
Hi Diana, since this product has a liquid texture, it is best to apply it with our Facial Cotton. However, if you'd prefer to apply it with your fingers, you can.

I have been using this and really like it. however, I am interested in trying eudermine essence. what are the differences between these 2 products?

Asked by: cherie
Hi Cherie, Ibuki Softening Concentrate has PhytoResist Complex which will refine skin's texture and build its resistance to external stressors. Eudermine Revitalizing Essence delivers immediate moisture and responds to change in climate to keep your skin's moisture level constant. We hope this helps!

Softening Concentrate is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the softener, please bring it back I just started my second bottle, and find myself so dependent on it, it has become my everyday routine, I use it both for the morning and evening. Texture is between toner and lotion, and it does make your skin silky soft. I am so disappointed to find out this product is discontinued. What would be the alternative that works like this softener.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does Just What it Says: Softens I bought an Ibuki skincare kit which included this softener. I use it right after cleansing with the Ibuki Gentle Cleanser (love it) and the softening serum glides right on, and is absorbed quickly. It does indeed leave my skin feeling so soft. It is a part of my morning skincare regimen, and I followed up with the moisturizer. The texture of my skin has improved over the past few weeks of use.
