Aquamoist Hyaluronic Cleansing Oil

In Beauty on 17/01/2014 at 10:00

Where I got it: I got this from Sass.com. I have purchased this previously and I loved it. This is my 3rd bottle! This is about NZD$14.50 on Sasa.com.

What I got: This is a 150ml pump bottle of cleansing oil be Aquamoist with hyaluronic acid. It works best with dry hands, but it also works with wet hands. The cleansing oil goes deep into skin and melts dirt and makeup in a flash, while hyaluronic acid retains the skin’s natural moisture level.

How I find it: I have been using cleansing oil for over as long as I can remember to effectively and easily remove makeup. I use about 2-3 pumps of this cleansing oil on my dry hands, rub it between my palms and massage the oil all over my face and my eyes. The oil is smooth, but not thick and feels silky on my skin. After about a minute of gentle massaging, I wet my hands to make the cleansing oil into a milky consistency, then I massage my wet hands all over my skin, working the makeup off. After working it off a little, I rinse it all off with luke warm water. Then I use my normal facial cleanser to wash off the remaining dirt and grime all over my face.

Overall: As this is already my third bottle, you can see that I really like it. It has a pump bottle, it is really affordable and it is highly effective and effortless. It removes all my long-wearing foundation (i.e. Estee Lauder Double Wear), liquid eyeliner, waterproof mascara (so far, all of my mascaras, except the Loreal Telescopic waterproof mascara – this stuff is tough!), blush, etc. It really does not leave my skin too dry and it also doesn’t make my skin feel greasy and oily. I have been using this for about 2 months and I am close to finishing it (I use it nearly every night).

Haruhada Hyaluronic Acid Moisture Skin Lotion

In Beauty on 03/10/2012 at 04:36

Where i got this: I got this skin lotion while it was on sale on Sasa.com for $17.40NZD for 2!

What is this: This is 500mL bottle of hyaluronic acid lotion. This is more like an extra step if you already do that cleansing, toner and moisturiser. It hydrates your skin and of course it is only a few percent of the active stuff if you know what I mean. Dosen’t work as great as the serums itself!

How i find it so far : This is used after toner, I pour about 2-3 drops on my palm, rub my hands together and pat it on my face. It is clear and has a refreshing liquid-gel like texture. It will take forever to finish these 2 bottles so I use this lotion as a mask once or twice a week. It is quite popular to make your own lotion mask in Hong Kong and Japan. I will do another post and explain how. It is never sticky because it is absorbed really well and it does not leave an oily film at all becuase it does not have any oil in it. I have been using it for like 4 months and only managed to use up half (I use quite a lot on my lotion masks already!)

Overall: My skin definitely improved in hydration, especially after the lotion mask. More glowing and clear. I use this on my hands and arms sometimes.
