I try out a lot of beauty products. I’m especially interested in skincare, and I can’t help but try new products all of the time in hopes of finding something that just works magic on my skin. Usually, the stuff I try is pretty good or on occasion it can be horrible. I’m satisfied with the products I use but nothing really stood out, you know?
While I was in Japan, I saw a jar of Shiseido Aqua Label Special Gel Cream on sale so I decided to pick one up. I’m always looking for a great nighttime moisturizer and I can’t pass up a bargain! They even threw in a sample of their essence as well. The packaging is pretty plain, so I probably would have passed on this if it wasn’t on sale. I’m such a sucker for packaging! I’m really glad I ended up noticing this though. See why below! 😉
After a bit of googling, I found out that this Shiseido Aqua Label Special Gel Cream is actually a huge multitasking cream. Not only is it a great moisturizer, it also serves as emulsion, lotion, essence and creams. This product alone should replace any others that you use. Although I don’t mind using several products, this was still appealing. I’ll admit that sometimes I’m so tired at the end of the day that I wish I didn’t have to spend so much time doing my nightly skincare routine.
The texture is one of my favorite parts of this product! It is a semi-firm jelly like texture that glides onto the skin very nicely. My skin always works better with gel creams, so this was right up my alley. It’s a little looser than a jelly texture, but it still clings to the jar and doesn’t come loose easily. In fact, soon after you take any product out of the jar you will find that it has molded back to it’s original shape. It looks like it’s a brand new product every time you open it, which is awesome!
I honestly wasn’t expecting much when I started using this but I ended up loving it! It really made my skin feel softer and brighter after using it overnight. I can tell that the texture of my skin is getting better over time, too. Since it’s packed with collagen, my skin really held on to the moisture. When I applied it onto my skin, it sunk in beautifully and left it feeling moist without that greasy feeling. It’s almost like an instant pick me up! The smell is not overpowering and a little goes a long way with this formula. The jar will last for quite awhile.
If you’re looking for a multitasking product to simplify your skincare routine, you should definitely give Shiseido Aqua Label Special Gel Cream a try. It’s simple, easy and effective.
