The only way I could open it is to use one of those gripper pads you use to open jars. The thinner the better since the stopper is so small. I think you can find them in kitchen supply stores. Ladies, don't return it out of frustration. It's a great product.

It was a little hard for me to open too when I first received the bottle, but after you get the top out the first time, it's really easy to open again in the future.

I wiggled the top back and forth and pulled, and it eventually came out without any of the product spilling.

I don't think this answer will help but I certainly was not able to open it. I tried all night with my bare hands and with tools. My finger is bruised from all this effort. I can't imagine liking this product and wanting to buy it again just to go through this again. I will be returning this product promptly and exchanging it for a toner that is easier to open and alcohol-free.

Slightly twist the top while simultaneously gently pulling up. Make sure not to lift the bottle by the lid and keep a good grip on the bottle.

Question
What part of skincare routine?
I am using the white lucent line? When can you use the eudermine essence in the routine? After the softener or after the moisturizer? Is it used daily or sometimes? Do I interchange a product from my white lucent line? Any advice appreciated. D

After your serums.

This product would be replacing your softener: after cleansing and before any serums, then lotion. It is supposed to slough off dead skin cells and prep your face for any serums and lotions, making them more easily absorbed.

One useful tip: just your fingers to apply and skip the cotton pad. The bottle is horrible and I haven't found a way to apply this wonderful product with a cotton pad without wasting this magic potion.

The Eudermine Essence is used the same way as the softener. We recommend using one or the other and applying right after cleansing. Hope this helps!

Question
Would you need to use a moisturizer after this product?
I've been looking into Shiseido's Eudermine Revitalizing Essence for a while and have been interested in incorporating it into my current skin care routine as a toner/lotion, but while reading the product description today it sounded like it's being sold as more of a moisturizer. My question is: would I use this strictly as a toner and apply my current moisturizer on top as normal, or would I use it after cleansing and skip my moisturizer entirely? Thanks!

Yes you would need a moisturizer after this product. This is used in between toner and moisturizer.

Most definitely. I adore Eudermine because it preps my face for my morning/evening skincare regime, however it's not a true "moisturizer" but more of a preparing toner. It gives the skin an initial shot of moisture (kind of like you'd get when splashing the face with water), but its purpose is to soften the skin and make it more receptive to the skincare treatments you use after application.

I use this product after my clinique toner and prior to my moisturizer. You can totally use this product as your toner. Never skip your moisturizer!!!

A lot of people don't understand how to properly use this product on a shiseido cotton pad, thus they claim it's wasteful to use on the cotton pad. On the contrary, if you properly use it with shiseido cotton pad (which I do,) you won't loose any of the liquid and 3-4 drops will cover your entire face! To find out how to properly use it, search it on youtube. search shiseido eudermine commercial and click on the chinese lady one, watch how she uses it.

This is a "lotion" there is no sprayer but you could put it in a spray bottle. Very hydrating and if you use the cotton pads from them it makes the bottle last longer. Be careful where you put the bottle almost broke it a few times

According to Shiseido website, you should use Eudermine after cleansing, and then follow with moisturizer or serum. I use it as a toner.

It can be used as either. It's formulated to be a moisturizer -- a lighter emulsion -- but it can, if used with a lighter moisturizer, work ok as a toner, too. I find it works best if I don't use a toner before I use it; usually an oil-reducing cleanser, then this elixir, work great during the day, and I can use this very sparingly as a toner at night before my anti-aging night cream.

Question
What would happen to your skin if you stopped using this product?
Would it immediately become parched? Does the skin become "addicted" to it and need it? I am not sure I'd be able to keep up with the price of this one for the rest of my life. The reviews sound amazing but I'm afraid if I tried it I could never go back to a "regular" lotion again!

Your skin does not become addicted. I have stopped using it for a month after using it for a year because I was traveling. My skin did not break out or react to a different skin routine. I have combo oily skin and I am part Asian. I hope this helps.

your skin cannot become "addicted" to products! Although it is benefical to stick with a product that seems to be helping you can switch products at anytime.
