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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from baby soft skin I have quite dry skin, but as a teenager I do get oily around the nose area. I purchased this because the skin around my cheek and jawline area was rough and bumpy, but no acne. Now its extremely soft and many of the small bumps have disappeared. It was magical! I am very happy with the results
