Japanese women are famous for their love of cosmetics, so whenever I see a beauty product that has been voted number 1 in Japan, it is the best selling pitch for me. The CURE Natural Aqua Gel is one of them (one bottle is sold every 12 seconds), and I even had my readers emailing me about how much they adore this exfoliator, so when BeautyCarousel contacted me to ask if I was interested to give this product a try, of course I said yes!
It is housed in a plastic bottle, it retails for SGD$42 (Singapore dollar) for 250g of product which I consider is a very reasonable price. My skin is prone to congestion so exfoliating my skin is a core step in my skincare routine. I have tried all sorts of exfoliators before, including the conventional scrubs, micro-dermabrasions, AHA, peel etc, and I have paid exorbitant amount of price for some of them. But I have never repurchased any one them until I came across the CURE Aqua Gel which has officially ended my quest for the perfect exfoliator. The formulation is just perfect for my skin type – it is non-abrasive, doesn’t tingle my skin like glycolic acid does, effective but gentle, and it provides a sense of achievement when I can feel the dead skin coming off. Since it is so gentle I use it around my nose and chin everyday, and twice a week for my whole face and neck. The skin appears much more clear, translucent, smooth and soft without stripping its natural oil after each application.
The CURE Natural AQUA Gel has a whitish transparent gel texture, and it transforms into liquid during application. I normally use 2 pumps on my entire face and gently massage it over in circular motion. The liquid binds to the dead skin cells and after rubbing a short time both the gel and the dead skin solidify and “ball up” which feels completely satisfactory! CURE claims that 0.01mm of old skin can be removed by using this product. I can’t measure that, but it is keeping my skin noticeably smoother and refined when using it at least twice a week.
