I have very sensitive skin so I can tell you for me it worked very well. What I did was try a small amount on the inside of my wrist at the store just to make sure. I do apply it all over my face and have found that it has not causes any skin irritations. Hope this helps~

I have such sensitive skin, I can't use water to clean. I previously use la Roche posay, but the Ibuki line is great. I will even try the cleanser since this product works well. Husband bought moisturizer for me as well and my skin looks great.

Please be very cautious if you have sensitive skin. This product has a pretty high alcohol content, which means it STINGS when I tried it on my hand (although I did not try it on my face after the sting on my hand...)

answer 1
I apply it with clean hands after washing my face. I would not recommend using a cotton pad or any other tool to apply. The consistency is very fluid so if you used a cotton pad or any other tool it would mostly be absorbed by the tool. (side note - I suggest you pump a small amount at a time because a little goes a long way)

Either will work. I received a free sample of the Shiseido facial cotton when I purchased the Ibuki line, and it worked really well to apply it, but I didn't worry about purchasing it when I ran out. It's not so liquid as to run through your fingers, and I think it's actually more economical (you need less because none of it gets soaked into the cotton pad). I usually don't even need a full pump to cover my whole face. Just make sure your fingers are clean so you aren't redepositing oil and dirt onto your face.
