I’ve been reading a lot about this product since 2014, so when I traveled to Japan I decided to purchase one. The price tag is 2500 JPY or around IDR 295.000 / 22 USD. Some online shops in Indonesia sold it for IDR 450.000 – 500.000.

The bottle is very simple clear plastic with pump. I appreciate the pump because it is practical.

Basically it claims to be gentle yet effective exfoliator to smooth & brighten your skin that is perfect sensitive skin, it also claims help to treat acne prone skin. It has liquid-gel-like texture that melts right away on skin.

“dead skin beads”

I tried them as soon as I get home and I don’t know how to feel about it. As they say, after facial cleansing and pat my skin dry I apply Cure Natural Aqua Gel and leave it for a few second then rub it away. After I rub for 3 seconds I notice there are white beads of “dead skin” appears, but I keep rubbing because I can feel how smooth my skin is (already). After enough rubbing I rinse with water and the result is, clean smooth skin with no stickiness and zero redness.

I use this once or twice a week or whenever I feel like my skin needs a little deep cleansing after a heavy makeup day. For a couple of months I didn’t see any difference in my skin & also realize how I still getting pimples after I deep cleanse with it. I don’t know if it’s too gentle or maybe it’s just a gimmick, the “dead skin beads” are actually the product residue. I stop using it after that.

Since I tried this Cure Natural Aqua Gel I’ve seen some Korean cosmetic brands sold similar product. But again I still think it’s just a gimmicky product. So… save your money buy a decent chemical exfoliator that actually works.
