Naris Up Japan Skin Conditioner Lotion Toner Review

Toner is such an important part of my skincare regime. Having drier skin I can use all the help I can get to keep my skin hydrated, soft, and smooth. Toner aids the chore and also allows my moisturizer to absorb easily into my skin.

Mists and toners are such an essential part of my daily regime and just something I wholeheartedly recommend even for folks that aren’t dry, they just really help balance skin out and prep skin for other parts of your skincare line up.

Recently I’ve been using Naris Up Japan Skin Conditioner Lotion Toner in two different formulas. These are HUGE bottles of toner that work not only to soften skin but also act as a great DIY mask, I’ll explain in a second.

Take a look!

These come in five formulas but two of my favorites are the Vitamin C formula and the Hyarulonic Acid. The Vitamin C formula supposedly whitens, I could be utterly bonkers, but my duller skin does look considerably nicer after use. Where as the Hyarulonic Acid Formula not only adds moisture but helps to retain it.

These are perfect for prep work prior to serums, moisturizers, etc…they help your other skincare products absorb easier and create a nice smooth surface for your other skincare products. I like using them after I wash and dry my face. They make an excellent quick moisturizer as well for those with oily skin.

The bottles are so large (over 12 oz) you can decant a small amount into tiny mister bottles and use them as an all over mist. Or my favorite, you can dose facial cotton with the toner and place them on your face as a facial mask of sorts. I like using Japanese Facial Cotton but you can use any square cotton pads you have. Simply saturate them completely with the toner and place them on your cheeks, forehead, and chin. Relax with them in place for a while, 20-30 minutes, remove, and your face will not only feel refreshed but nicely moisturized as well.

These are a nice bargain at this size.

Loves ’em!

I got mine from AlphabeautyUK on E-bay for $17 each (this includes shipping).

What toners do use?

    Wow, those are gigantic bottles!!! How do they compare to Hada Labo, Muse?


    • 3/28/12 9:52 the Muse:

      mm nothing like it dao :)

    Although I don’t like toners in general, I’m in love with Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner Light.


  • 3/27/12 22:24 Jenn:

    Ohhh! I wanna try these! I have dry skin and think these could be a great option. I recently got the Naruko toners. One is called a dew and the other is a lotion and they are awesome! Highly recommend you try those out too! I also got the “blank” sheet masks at a Japanese discount store and saturate them with the toner to make my own sheet masks and it works great for that extra moisture! Just passing on the tips! Love your blog!


    • 3/28/12 9:52 the Muse:

      aw thanks jenn for the tips and sharing your fav toner ;-D and THANK you for reading and loving Musings ;D!


  • 3/27/12 22:45 electronicfly:

    Hee long time no comment 😛 I’m not sure if you can get this over in US, but in many Asian countries you can get DIY sheet masks. Imagine a dry sheet mask that’s compressed, so to use it you soak it in whatever toner you want until it expands and tadah! Much less messy than using pieces of cotton pads. Really cheap too, if you can get it easily ($0.10 a piece or less even)


    • 3/28/12 9:53 the Muse:

      mmm I have them electronic 😀 I buy them in little tabs, good stuff ;-D


  • 3/28/12 0:27 Jharna:


    How would they work for sensitive skin?


    • 3/28/12 9:01 the Muse:

      should be fine jharna, they seem very gentle to me!


  • 3/28/12 1:13 FadBurger:

    I’ve been eyeing these at Mitsuwa forever! The price is very decent there too. I HAVE to run out and get the Vitamin C one tomorrow 😀 :D. I just got like 2 other toners but OMG skin brightening/evening!


  • 3/28/12 1:18 FadBurger:

    OH! By the way, I saw them showing that you can use those on those dry sheet masks that they sell (either in pellets that you pour this toner on to let it “grow” or in flat sheets)! I might have to try that, it may help the Vitamin C one be more effective in whitening :)


    • 3/28/12 9:00 the Muse:

      do try those tammie, they are fab. I can’t say when I can ship bc I’m a bit swamped, but I have quite a good deal of six tabs if you wanna try them out!


      • 3/28/12 10:25 Tammie:

        Thats ok Muse, I can get them cheap enough here. Thanks for the offer though :)


        • 3/28/12 10:27 the Muse:

          my pleasure ;D!


  • 3/28/12 5:14 Julia:

    I love Tosekki’s lotion (Tosekki belongs to JUJU I think), but I’ve almost used mine up and every online seller that has it is out of stock. >___<
    I like it because it doesn't have a lot of alcohol, but tons of good plant extracts, and it's not even that expensive. I don't care for whitening that much, honestly, because I'm already beyond any foundation colour (seriously, not even the lightest shades fit me), but I guess brightening and some acne scar fading would be nice.


    • 3/28/12 12:46 Tammie:

      Julia I have this Organic one by Meishoku, they also have a type for oily skin as well and at least 1 face cream (this is all they carry at my Mitsuwa anyway). It has tons of plant extracts and is alcohol and paraben free!

      Here is a pic from my Poupee xD;; :


      • 3/28/12 14:13 Julia:

        Thanks! But unfortunately, I don’t live in the US and can’t buy any Asian cosmetics in the Asian markets here in Germany. :/
        I did order another toner from Meishoku, though, from Sasa during their shipping promotion and will try that one next. :)


  • 3/29/12 12:45 Tammie:

    Picked up the Vitamin C one yesterday, it was $7.50 at the Asian market–what a steal! I used it as a sheet mask last night and it did seem to help! Very pleased :). Just wish it was cuter, but oh well lol


    • 3/29/12 12:48 the Muse:

      LOL me too cuter would be nice hahaha!


  • 4/25/12 3:23 Nguyen:

    It costs 8 usd at a Japanese market.


    • 7/26/12 3:14 Annie:

      can u tell me what’s the name of that japanese market? this sound good. i’m not usually a fan of toner because they dry me out. The only asian toner i have tried is from Pola and they’re too expensive for my pocket :(


  • 7/7/12 23:25 kikyo:

    heyyy! i saw the EXACT same thing in t&t here in edmonton!!!! unfortunally,myhyy mom thought it was too expensive so she didn’t buy it for me, it costed $13 bucks there which wasn’t that expensive but i already got the facial cleasner and hand cream i wanted and she said that was enough. tell me where to buy online here! im gonna get one myself without my mom! ^_^


  • 11/2/14 15:20 Mimers2:

    Just bought mines on sale today at the local Californian Mitsuwa. Can’t wait to start using this especially with the super dry fall/winter California has been experiencing. Love your site btw! I always check your reviews before purchasing a new skin product. >v<


    • 11/3/14 11:46 Isabella Muse:

      aw thanks mimers so flattered 😀 Hope you enjoy these 😀


  • 4/16/15 12:34 Sillee:

    I just purchased one today, but it was all in Japanese–since I did purchase at a Japanese market. Stumbled upon your article while trying to find out the name. So excited to open it up right now!

    I ran out of my Clean Face Mild Toner by The Face Shop and felt its too costly to keep repurchasing (though it was my 4th bottle LOL). This was 8 USD, compared to the Mild Toner that was 18 USD. Uggghhhh so excited nowwwww. Thanks for the review! 😀


    • 4/21/15 16:11 Isabella Muse:

      my pleasure sillee :) I hope you like!
