Anyone who has ever been to Japan will know that there are thousands of good skincare and make-up products available there which are not here but they do trickle in. One of the best-selling skin/bodycare products which has just been brought into Malaysia is Natural Aqua Gel Cure, a gentle exfoliator for face and body.
We all know the importance of removing dead skin cells – improves penetration of skincare products and skin problems are generally caused by accumulation of dead skin cells. Twice weekly exfoliation is therefore recommended otherwise no matter how excellent the skincare products you apply on your face, they will have limited efficacy.
Natural Aqua Gel Cure has been available in Japan for more than 10 years, it is available in 3,300 stores in Japan including the famous department stores there (as many as 1,000 bottles have been sold per month). This product removes just the dead skin layer on our skin surface (0.01mm) making this a gentle exfoliation product. 90% of the ingredients is water (hydrogen water), it contains no preservatives, coloring, fragrance, mineral oil or alcohol.
If it is used only on the face, one bottle can last between 3-4 months. It can be used on the body too which makes this quite economical since you don’t have to purchase a separate body exfoliator. I’ve been using it more on my body than face because when I used it on my face, there didn’t seem to be as much dead skin cells as on my body so my body needs this product more than my face.
This is a gel exfoliator which is quite runny and slippery. Point to note is that it has to be used on very dry skin. When I applied it on slightly damp skin, it didn’t work as well. Once applied, massage it in circular motions and you will see evidence of the dead skin cells.
Cure’s ingredients react only with protein and amino acid on your skin. If you apply it immediately after the first application, it will be less effective since the dead skin cells have already been removed. The product removes only the unnecessary protein from your skin.
Anyway, trying is believing and to this purpose, I have 5 sets of Natural Aqua Gel Cure to giveaway, each set contains 2 sachets. You don’t need much per application as the product is so fluid. I found that 2 pumps yields quite a lot.
