Big in Japan – Cure Natural Aqua Gel

If you’ve wondered which beauty product sells every 12 seconds in Japan, wonder no more: it’s Cure Natural Aqua Gel. Asia, the fastest-growing skin care market has been sharing their staples over the last decade or so and nothing makes me happier. They have such fabulous skin over there! This gentle water based exfoliator requires a simple ritual but the method to its madness delivers results that may even have you chuck your traditional face scrub. #PureAndSimple

Cure Natural Aqua Gel is perfect for those who prefer a simple, uncomplicated take on exfoliation. Treatment products absorb and penetrate much more effectively when we help the dead cells slough off. Beauty counters and drugstore shelves are full of options: chemical, mechanical, with acids, without, you name it. This Japanese gem is completely non-abrasive and suitable for all skin types. I tend to reach for it when I’m particularly lazy or taking my time is just not an option. #SpoiledByChoice

Before you order your Cure Natural Aqua Gel be sure to have a reliable Internet connection. When your bottle arrives, you will notice the only words in English are the name of the product and ‘Made in Japan.’ My knowledge of Japanese is non-existent but researching yielded this magic product consists of 90% revitalized hydrogen water infused with aloe vera, rosemary and ginko extracts. Most importantly, the formula is free of color, fragrance, alcohol and preservatives. Google or YouTube is full of tutorials but in a nutshell, that’s the scoop. #LostInTranslation

Wash your face and pat it dry. Step outside the hot steamed up bathroom – the air must to be dry as well. Dispense 1-2 pumps and apply to the face, avoiding the eyes and lips. More of a liquid gel than a gel gel, it can be runny when you least expect it, which can be annoying. After two minutes, gently massage your face in circular motions. The gel will congeal and turn white leaving you with tiny balls of grime and product rolling around. Rinse your face clean. I swear you will be amazed by how soft and smooth your skin feels. #YouGellin’

While Cure Natural Aqua Gel is a very good exfoliator, you may need to use this in addition to a chemical exfoliant if your blackhead issue is as chronic as mine. The best choice is a Beta Hydroxy treatment (I use Paula’s Choice). It also feels great not having to hunt this hot import down at ethnic markets or specialty stores. Beware that anything this popular can be fake, coming in from overseas. There is a trusted source with glowing reviews on Check it out since it’s always at a discount. At just under $40, I often luck out. #Naturally

    I like simple face washes. Does it leave a little layer afterwards or is you face clean clean?

    I just wanted to let you know I spent the last couple hours reading all of your blog posts and it cheered me up after a week of being ill beyond belief with some virus. I’m a luxury product junkie like you so I had a lot of cathartic laughs. I have to travel WAAAY too much for the business I own (believe it or not, I work with roller coasters and theme parks exclusively) and the amount of product I take with me is *sick*. I keep hoping I’m not the only one out there and I’m betting you feel my pain. 😉
