Which type of exfoliant do you like? I just found my favorite exfoliant product that I can't live without...
When people are wondering if they need to switch to liquid exfoliant at all, I found this amazing bottle from Japan. Cure's Natural Aqua Gel. This is the best exfoliant product in Japan or maybe in the world. I don't dislike liquid exfoliant but some products smell too acidy. I don't like to use them before bed. That's why I like to use Cure. This is my 4th week of using this exfoliant. The gel liquid is not physical exfoliant which removes dead skin by scrubbing the surface. It's not acid liquid which dissolves death skin. These options can be too harsh for sensitive areas and increase the risk of sun damage. And it takes time to kick in.
How does Cure's aqual gel work? It has activated hydrogen water.
This is bottle of face peeling water. It's so mild and gentle, no fragrance, no acid. I didn't smell anything. It's just very easy to see the result with no concern about any "iffy" chemicals.
First I removed my makeup, cleansed the face and padded dry. My skin was ready for the exfoliation. I only used one pump of the gel for the whole face. I let it sit on my face for a while. The active ingredient reacted to my dead skin cells.
The texture is light and more liquid and gel. It looks clear on the skin. Again, the main ingredient is activated hydrogen water so there won't be any irritation or interesting smell. Then I massaged the gel in circle over the whole face. The dead skin was literally peeled off without scrubbing grains. I saw my fresh "baby" skin underneath. The result is immediate - how amazing. I use the gel twice a week to keep it fresh.
After the skin was nicely exfoliated, I applied Cure's Water Treatment Skin Cream. It's a super lightweight moisturizer. For fall and winter, I usually use creamy thick cream to fight the dry weather of LA. This Skin Cream is great to secure the water in the skin for the whole day. It's not adding any sticky layer or greasy content to the skin. My skin is moistruzied and it still can "breath". I can lay another serum or heavy cream if necessary. It's good for makeup prep as well.
I love Japanese beauty products. I alreays find great items at affordable prices. Cure is a nice addition to my skincare routine. If you are looking for an innovative exfoliant that actually works with no risk, you will love Cure.
