Reader’s Request: Cure Natural Aqua Gel Review
Sorry, can’t recall who, but someone requested a review of Cure Natural Aqua Gel.
Here’s the review you requested!
What the hell is Cure Natural Aqua Gel ANYWAY Muse?
If you’re living outside of Asia chances are you’ve no idea what this is but fact is it’s damn popular over that side of the world I’ll tell you that much. Cosme.net and the entire Japanese female population and all my girls on Cozycot (oh hi guys, been a while since I logged in sad sigh) talk about this stuff like it’s the Hope Diamond.
Fact, the Muse likes it alot but a little bit over hyped. Yes, it’s in the realms of greatness but let’s not get so crazy about how life changing it is.
What is it?
I briefly went over facial peels with you a few days ago but let me re-brief you.
Cure Natural Aqua Gel is a facial peel. Basically facial peels are a more gentle form of an exfoliator but this one happens to have a high water content formula that exfoliates skin gently without the harsh grainy formula most scrubs sport. This type of formula is used on dry skin, massaged on until it pills and starts rolling off your skin in tiny balls. This type of treatment is considerably more gentle than the normal round of exfoliators and offers a gentle way to remove dead, dry skin.
Now…I think that Cure gets a such good wrap for a few reasons.
As mentioned above it’s gentle and gets the job done. I commonly experience more drying after exfoliating with a regular scrub than when I originally started. With Cure Natural Aqua Gel I do not experience dryness at all after use and I’m left with dewy, squeaky clean skin. Secondly, I believe the product is so popular due to it’s high content of water which is supposedly made up of 90% of the product. And finally the product contains a nice dose of glycerin which leaves skin moist instead of tight after use.
According to reviews the product contains absolutely no harmful ingredients. It’s fragrant free however I do think it has a slightly strange swimming pool style scent going on but perhaps I’m imaging things. The formula is a gel which as I already say must be used on dry skin (don’t wet your skin prior to use). Simply massage gently and as it pills you’ll reveal softer skin. Rinse with cool water and you’re done.
I’m trying to think how long I’ve used this stuff all I know is it’s seriously been ages. After getting my reader’s request I went about exploring to see what the rest of the world was saying about it and was pleasantly surprised to see many reviews as it always feels like one of those Japanese best kept secrets that no one knows about.
My photos don’t do the product justice of how it works so here’s a video from Cure directly. Mind you it’s in Japanese but you can get the idea.
Overall, for me it’s a winner as I find I really can’t take full advantage of grainy, sugary scrubs which seem to dry out my skin something wicked. This is very gentle and it does the job well. Once or twice a week as a treatment and I’m left with glowing skin. It’s about $17 (after discount at retail of $24) in Japan, I actually have 8 bottles under my sink at the moment which my best friend Mai brought over her last trip to see me but I will say that lucky enough I’ve seen it for retail in and around E-bay. It is Muse Approval for purchase however I warn you do not use it more than twice a week, three time’s tops as I notice if I use it too often I cause more harm than good. Two times weekly is plenty to keep skin gorgeous.
