Cure Natural Aqua Gel

Exfoliation is important for both the body and face. This a way to remove dead skin cells on the skin's outermost surface and reveal new and healthy skin cells. I made it a habit to exfoliate at least twice a week. One product I'm trying to finish up soon is Cure Natural Aqua Gel.


a gentle, water-based exfoliant made from natural plant extracts of aloe vera, gingko and rosemary. It effectively sloughs off dead skin cells without irritating or harming skin, making it suitable even for the most sensitive skin types. 

My say
Performance: 3.5/5 stars
Packaging: 4/5 stars
Pricing: 2/5 stars

This is the overly-hyped exfoliator in the world. I read this first from on online shop (beautyand minerals.multiply.com) when I bought a make-up brush from them. Sophie raved this and she is happy using it. Plus it is the number 1 bestseller in Japan where it originated and 1 bottle is sold in every 20 seconds.  But this is a disappointment to me. This didn't do much on my skin. It do exfoliate but doesn't remove those pesky white/black heads. It is indeed gentle but not tough enough to remove those unwanted stuff on your face. This is also the most expensive exfoliator I ever bought :( Php 1600++ for a 250g bottle. This lasts for more than 6 months. I still have a quarter of it left. It is said that you have to use it within 6 months and I'm going on my 6th month. Probably I'll be over it by the end of May :) I'll never gonna buy this again. I think this works for those sensitive skin since it's very gentle. It is made up of 90% water but I could smell a hint of alcohol from it. No irritations and break outs for me :) But then again it didn't do that much in my skin :( 

Do you have anything that was overly-hyped? I hope not :) Take care!
