d PROGRAM Moist Care Lotion 125ml 3,675円 (税込)
I finished this today. The bottle lasted me about six weeks, which is about right if you use the amount suggested in the instructions. In my experience Japanese kesshousui (face lotions, or maybe toners, would be the closest translations I suppose, but I find translations awkward sometimes, and this is definitely one of those instances.) rarely last me as long as Western toners do, which in the past was reason enough for me to favour toners from Western brands. I’ve since resigned myself (probably) to replenishing the lotion part of my skin care regime more frequently as I feel kesshousui are often better at hydration than their western counterparts.
SHISEIDO d PROGRAM has been a brand I’ve been interested in for a while, and so when I discovered it on the shelves of the Fa-So-La duty free shops in Narita airport I was simply stoked! The brand is designed specifically with sensitive skin types in mind, and hence the products are formulated using clean manufacturing processes and without certain potentially irritating ingredients (more information on the official website). I picked up a trial pack earlier in the year, and was pleased enough with it to get more later.

d PROGRAM Balance Care Set 2,100円 (税込)
2 types (I and II)
I don’t like carrying my full size skin care bottles and jars back and forth so I usually keep separate sets, and this time because it was only a few days I decided to just get something from the duty free shop along the way. It worked out well because I’ve been wanting to try d PROGRAM since before they reformulated.
