Just going to do a review today. I have been trying out a new skincare set. Just trial size one. you can purchas it from Adambeauty.com or Ichibankao.
Curel is a sub company of Kao. It's designed for sensitive and dehydrated skin. I had some rash on my face few weeks back. I needed something to calm my skin down. I had little little bumps and also itchy patches. So I tried this range. It claims to have allantoin, ceramide and eucalyptus extracts and also anti inflammatory ingredients to calm the skin down and build up the skin's natural defense.
It is pH adjusted, free from fragrance, alcohol, Allergy tested. But I checked the ingredient list It contains paraben as a preservative. Though very small amount. If you are allergic to paraben may be you should avoid this. Also I looked up online Paraben isn't exactly good for skin either. But as a preservative and small amount it was ok for me. No reactions.
So the skincare trial set comes with four items.
- Make up removal gel
- Foaming cleanser
- Moisturising lotion
- Moisturising emulsion
So here's the makeup removal gel, On my hand I got estee lauder double wear foundation, kissme heorine mascara, Mac powerpoint liner in duck and Mac blankety lipstick. On the top is the makeup removal gel.
Rub it all together for a while it becomes all milky and wipe off with a cotton pad and rinse with water.
And here it is.. all clean. It is pretty good at removing foundations and lipsticks, not really eyemake up.
Wash face with the foaming cleanser the foam is dense. very comfortable to massage on to the face. It doesn't really clean the make up off.
The next step is the moisturising lotion, it has the consistency of water. Not very thick. no smell but very very moisturising. It feels like Hada Labo 's skincare range. But this lotion gets absorbed way faster.
This is the moisturising emulsion.
Abit rubbed in. and after a while it is completely absorbed really moisturising, acts like a barrier to keep all the moisture in. not heavy at all. But it is a bit too heavy for my combination skin in summer. I think it would be great in winter. or for normal and dry skin.
It calmed my skin down, with in a week my bumps and itchy patches are gone. back to normal smooth skin again.
Highly recommended to those who have sensitive skin and dehydrated, but do check the ingredient list if you are really sensitive. But Hada Labo's moisture range is pretty good for sensitive skin too. If you are extra cash to spend. Freeplus by Kanebo is another good one for sensitive dehydrated skin, but a bit more expensive.
That's all for today. Take cares. have a great weekend.
