This “Firma” is the green one, this is for the ageing care, especially for the wrinkles, dryness, and less supple skin.

Firma Shot Concentrate Oil

In this picture above, it is a small trial bottle, the full bottle is pump style.

The texture is smooth, not quite heavy oil. It moisturized my skin pretty well, after few mins, my skin is smooth.

As the massager, this oil is not slippy for massager with good quantity for moisturiser. Guess I should better to use much quantity on my face to massage.

Checking what Japanese reviewers are saying, I found few got pealed, the other few got acnes. The plant based products are often harmful for some people. Some for nice result of moisturizing, the other some got their swelling is gone down with massaging with this oil.

It was interesting that I found a reviewer told that pore cleansing with hot/ steamed towel;

  1. After your face wash, apply steamed towel on your face
  2. Applying this firm shot concentrate oil whole of your face
  3. Wipe your face with other steamed towel
