skincare review: Shiseido softeners to purify and moisturize

if you're a fan of Shiseido, you know the brand boasts luxurious and technologically-advanced products. keeping with this philosophy, the brand's toners are actually softening lotions, or softeners, and offer gorgeous benefits for skin.

when toners are advertised here in the states, they're typically recommended or aimed at teenagers. but the truth is, we can all use them. for clarifying and sweeping away any last traces of dirt and makeup our cleanser may have missed, toners also help prep the skin for the lotions, creams and serums that follow. Shiseido softeners also do these things, but unlike traditional toners, are hydrating and never leave skin feeling taught, rough or dry.

White Lucent Brightening Balancing Softener hydrates the skin while treating dark spots and improving the look and feel of skin. 

Pureness Balancing Softener is alcohol free, contains rosemary extract to clarify, the botanical extract, palo azul to moisturize, and is a refreshing way to keep skin clear without stripping it of moisture.

after using these for a few weeks, i'm definitely a fan. my skin looks and feels more refreshed, hydrated,  and i love that the pureness softener doesn't have that toner "sting".

visit your local Shiseido retailer {like Macy's or Sephora} to see these beauties in person and for more info or to purchase.
