Review: Cure Natural Aqua Gel

29 January 2013


 
Cure Natural Aqua Gel* 

After last year's visit to Hong Kong and seeing tonnes of gel exfoliater's on the market, I decided to give it a go too. With so many on the Japanese market, all claiming to be best sellers, I was spoilt for choice. These gel's are designed to be gentle yet super effective, currently the asian market is hooked on these. I decided to try Cure Natural Aqua Gel, mainly because Lindy from Bubzbeauty had mentioned it before and also because it has been around longer than the other gels I saw. 

What Cure Say:

'Natural Aqua Gel is 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. After cleansing face, apply gel on face and neck. Gently massage gel into skin and see the dead skin cells immediately peel off into tiny white balls. Rinse well with water and then pat skin dry.'



1. So when you pump out the gel, it's smooth in consistency with no visible or detectable scrubbing particles. When applied to the face, it feels really good, silky and cool. No harsh scrubbing bits nor oily residue. It smell's pleasant, no strong, overpowering distinctive smells here. I particularly left my hands after doing the washing, no fancy hand wash or hand cream, so my hands were fairly dry. 


2. Once you start scrubbing, particles start to form which Cure claim to be dead skin cells. The more you scrub, the more particles you form and the longer you scrub, the particles will slowly turn from white to a muggish grey colour. 


3. Once you're ready to rinse off the gel, gently splash your face with water and pat dry. Your skin will be left looking brighter, amazingly smoother and uber supple. 

Overall, I like this product. I have been using it for a month now and I would recommend it to those who have sensitive dry skin. I don't find it amazing or ground breaking but it is a lovely product and I will continue to use it until it's finished. The concept is really appealing as scratching your face with small particles is not always ideal. You can buy this for £32 at Yesstyle.co.uk. I am not sure of any other seller's as this product is pretty rare to find online. It is quite pricey too which is the only downside. 

Have you tried an exfoliating gel before? What do you think?

  1. I've heard so many great reviews on this product. Really want to try it one day. I have tried very similar products back when I had my cosmetics shop. It was a Korean brand peeling massage cream. There are quite a few brands that I've tried that were very similar. You massage into your skin and it exfoliates your dead skin cells just like this one. Made your skin felt so renewed and brilliant afterwards. Need to restock because I haven't used any in so long. Great post babe!

  4. i really love this product, since it's great to remove flakey skin with this. But it's quite hard to get this product and i think that yesstyle is selling it way too high. I just bought a dupe of the cure natural aqua gel. The brand is called L'egere and i just purchased it so i don't know if its as good as cure ^^"

  7. i think the particles are actually the plant cellulose that accumulate when you rub; they're supposed to pick up dead skin cells as they clump together.

  8. Actually I have quite a lot blemishes on my face and I'm really frustrated about it cos I've never been like this a year before.
    Does this product help reduce them?

  10. I've been wanting to try Cure for a while, but it's quite hard to get a hold of. I picked up DetClear at the local Jp super and it seems to work the same!

  11. Should I try? After I do have dry and sensitive skin meaning that I can't really use many facial products. I Tthink I might give it a shot.

  12. I've tried Arazyme Diamond Tree. It works great! But sadly I can never really find anything like it. I got it from my cousin whom I don't know where she gotten it from nor does anybody actually know about this product...But I've been dying to find something like it! I'm definitely going to give this one a go.

  15. This product is quite expensive so I researched quite abit and found an alternative product; Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel. It is slightly cheaper and got good reviews so I thought I'd try it; And I haven't regretted it! It is gentle, doesn't have a strong smell and leaves my skin soft. I just need to get another bottle now.
