Large-Format Lotions Comparison Guide

Lotion (aka softener or toner) is quintessential to a basic skincare routine in Japan. I even dare say that it’s the backbone since skipping this step is never posed as an option for those wanting to keep routine quick and simple.

You use it to remove any lingering impurities post-cleansing and provide a base layer of hydration. Many also give skin additional benefits such as helping to target hyperpigmentation, soothe irritation, or smooth roughness.

Large-format lotions are especially popular amongst the budget-conscious since you get a half-litre size bottle for less than ¥1,000! You can use it generously all over the face and body without feeling you’re wasting precious product. Stick a trigger spray head (or decant into a spray bottle) in there and you have yourself a lovely refreshing mist.

I’ve compared the top 6 most popular large-format lotions on RatzillaCosme so you can see what the differences and similarities are, whether you’re looking to switch or try one for the first time.

Is it really better to use this swiping with a cotton pad than just patting it on with your hands?

Thanks for the rec! I love using toner(lotion) like this. Haven’t thought about using it on my body but it is a brilliant idea! I have used the Kiku-Masamune lotion (white bottle) and it was lovely. I want to try the moisture type as well!
