Cool Aqua Gel is another water-based moisturizer that I have. The texture is pretty similar to BRTC Ice Green Tea Gel. But the effect is not alike. The Ice Green Tea is quickly absorbed, leaves no sticky feeling, and don’t lead to greasy feeling. The hydration property is average. The Cool Aqua Gel hydrates the skin slightly better and at the same time makes my face become sticky oily few hours later.
The gel is stored in 50 gram-size glass jar. It comes in blue-transparent gel with fresh texture. It has light pleasant smelling too. It takes few second before the gel sink properly in my skin. The properties of this gel is moisturizing and hydrating only.
Actually I was eager to list the ingredients which are written on the box. But I haven’t found the box yet. I’ll update this post once it found.
Next, these are some tips of when should we use moisturizer:
- After face steaming, cleansing or exfoliation since it removes not only dirt, dead skin cells, or makeup residue, but also the natural oils that is needed by the skin.
- Spending long hours in an air-conditioned room cause the skin to suffer from loss of moisture.
- Sunburned skin. Using aloe-based moisturizer is the best way to sooth and reduce sunburn.
- Before using thick and hardly blending bb cream :p Ok .. This is what I usually do. The bb cream that is applied on top of moisturizer will look smoother and more natural. But, in my case I apply a very tiny amount of moisturizer or my face will get very oily.
Another tip is to apply moisturizer right away when the skin is still damp. The moisturizer will trap the water inside the skin. Beside, moisturizer will sink in best when applied on damp skin.
