I am really sorry for my lack of posts these weeks... we´re really busy in our holidays (yes, busy!) because we are seeing family nearly every day so at night I am too lazy/tired to post on the blog. Anyway, I am returning home on Tuesday, at home a plethora of packages is awaiting me (incl. new stuff from the Kate, Lavshuca and MM fall collections...and JS and MQ are on the way as well... so those will be reviewed as soon as I can swatch them, I promise!).. of course some major Etsying included =)
About 3 years or so someone on Makeupalley told me that I have to try Dr. Ci:Labo skincare if my skin is sensitive. I had some samples of the stuff at home but for some reason didn´t try it out as I was happy with my FancL & Olay (that super simple moisture lotion for sensitive skin) skincare regimen..
I am very happy with my Kanebo Freeplus stuff (& Kanebo Kracie Naive for cleansing)... honestly my skin is behaving very well these months.. the last time it got mad was with those Beauty Diary masks...)
Anyway, I found Adambeauty listing Dr. Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive some time ago and thought it wouldn´t hurt picking up a small tub for my upcoming travel as the weather in Egypt usually irritates my skin so an extra boost of moisture wouldn´t hurt.
Adam also has the regular version up for grabs but I picked the Super Sensitive kind.
The Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive comes in a light pink tub in either 50g or 120g. On top of the gel the cover also holds a spatula.
Adambeauty charges US$43 for the smaller and US$80 for the larger size so if this is a staple product for you it´s definitely more worth to get the larger one. Amazon.com lists the larger tub for US$59.90 and the smaller one for US$40. Might be more worth checking out!
I picked the smaller tub as I wasn´t sure if I´d like it and 50g is a normal face cream size so I didn´t see why I would pick up the larger tub (yet).
The Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive contains:
-ATP Complex (combination of various plant extracts from Japan and China)
-Vitamin P & H
-four types of ceramides
It is recommended for people with sensitive skin as it will strengthen the skin´s natural barrier and give a moisture boost.
The gel is unscented and has a milky white color. The consistency is more like a gel-cream (think Etude House Moistfull Jelly) than a real gel. It has a smooth slippery feel when you touch it.
When I apply this I can feel the moisture right away, it feels so refreshing and nice. When I finish rubbing this into my skin it feels so very soft and smooth but also very lightly sticky (not yucky though) and I feel the moisture stays around all day long. I like to use this on top of my Freeplus Maintenance Care Lotion & Emulsion for that extra kick of mild moisture.
All in all I really like this and find it´s a superior quality skincare product. I still like my Etude House Moistfull Jelly but the Dr. Ci:Labo is all in all not as sticky and feels more moisturizing. You just feel the quality is more advanced.
