I ordered a bottle of Cure Natural Aqua Gel exfoliator stuff out of pure curiousity. While I was researching it I found loads of rave reviews along with skeptical assessments that because of its ingredients it shouldn't work. I have to find out for myself.

I also ordered another bottle of Missha Time Revolution First Treatment Essence, making this my third repurchase. My skin really loves this stuff and it seems to miss it when I run out.

I'm trying to decide which facial sunscreen to try next and would appreciate recommendations, particularly AB! I'm currently finishing a tube of Missha All Around Safe Block and like it a lot but fancy trying something different. I've also used and enjoyed Shiseido Hada Senka Mineral UV Gel, Biore Aqua Rich Watery Essences, Supergoop Everyday, Supergoop Soothing, and both of the ones from Elta MD. Ones I didn't like so much were Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Dry Touch, Benefit Dream Screen, or any of the ones from La Roche Posay. I have dry skin and my budget is pretty open, and I don't have a preference between physical and chemical sunscreens.

I like her little experiment here involving "chemical exfoliants." I use Cure Natural Aqua Gel and I always wondered how it worked.

Edit: Also, I am not affiliated with this blog at all.

Also, i'm looking into a chemical exfoliate. what are your thoughts on this? It says #1 in Japan.

u/lunadollx · 3 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Please correct me if i'm wrong, but you meants this one right? If that's the one, I honestly don't think its that expesinve:) I mean, dear lord, there are 1,752 positive reviews on Amazon.

1. Cleanser -link - Remove dirt, really powerful. It has gotten rid of my blackheads, and I had a lot.

2. Exfoliator -link - Only whenever my skin can handle it. Will get rid of all of that flakey skin you have for a smooth finish. It'll make your skin 100% smooth without flakes after 1 use.

3. Essence -link - Skin treatment after exfoliator, replacement for toner. Repairs damaged skin as well and is good protection.

Finally, any Korean BB Cream that goes well with your skin tone. A good BB cream is protective tinted moisturizer to hide your imperfections. Asian BB Cream products are way superior than the American versions.

I would recommend this for you as good BB Creams if you're ever interested:

Choice One - Link - Whitening, Wrinkle Repair, Moisturizer, Tinted, Sunblock. This one is a bit stronger.

Choice Two - Link - Whitening, Wrinkle Repair, Moisturizer, Tinted, Sunblock. This one is more popular.

When I was exfoliating too much, my skin broke out in tiny, itchy red dots. It was irritated, red, and flaky, but still oily as hell. So I backed off from the scrubbing and let my skin heal. Now I use cosrx blackhead power liquid, which contains betaine salicylate, a more gentle form of salicylic acid (beta hydroxy acid). I don't really have problems with salicylic acid, but this stuff does seem to be less drying. I also use MUAC Mandelic Acid Toner a few times a week. It contains mandelic acid, which is an alpha hydroxy acid with a large molecular size. Their mandelic acid serum is also really good. I only use it a couple times a week.

Every couple weeks I'll use Skin79 Crystal Peeling Gel. It's a gel with cellulose, which sticks to oil and dead skin. As you rub it off, it takes the oil and dead skin with it, leaving behind smooth skin. I really like it because it's very gentle but effective. Korean and Japanese brands have lots of peeling gels. All of them have worked pretty much the same, so I haven't bothered with the expensive ones like Cure Aqual Gel, which is very popular.

I used to use abrasive scrubs and at-home microdermabrasion kits like the one from Olay. It worked really well until my face decided it had had enough.

This is just my exfoliation routine. There are other products I use that I can tell you about if you're interested. :)

^ Dutch girl who owns a cat and recommends Cure. :P

u/sensitiveadventurer · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Is it beneficial to use both an AHA exfoliant like Paula's Choice 8% AHA gel AND another exfoliant like Cure Natural Aqua Gel? Or is just one or the other optimal (considering cost, too, which is expensive for both)?

u/ttlens · 2 pointsr/japan

2420yen per bottle on Amazon Japan.

$28.99 isn't a bad price considering they are paying eBay fees, PayPal fees, and offering free shipping.

u/FuckinPeaches · 2 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

This is the next regiment I'm phasing in (as in one or two new products every month) after a month of lurking on here. Please feel free to throw suggestions at the newbies guys!

In the morning:

  • CeraVe facial cleansers (I've ordered both the foaming and gel kind to compare and for travel) to replace my Burt's Bee's Radiance face wash.

  • A month after starting CeraVe, starting at once a week, then working my way up, the Green Cream as a strong, non-prescription retinol.

  • The [CeraVe SPF50 sunscreen] ( I know the amazon reviews say that it leaves a film, etc, but I really want to avoid the silliness of layering product upon product in the morning. Everyone's going on and on about CeraVe and the importance of SPF 50, so voila I'm getting this product.

    Starting at twice a week, after work:
  • [The Cure exfoliator] ( to replace my Angels on Bare Skin physical exfoliator from Lush. Chemical exfoliation sounded scary for the longest time, but after some research I kind of see why it would be more effective and less damaging than manual exfoliation. This product seems to be one of the gentlest and most effective.

  • A DYI face mask: ground oatmeal, milk, aloe vera gel, honey.

    At night:
  • CeraVe face wash
  • My old Lush Eau Roma toner and Skin's Shangri-La cream until they run out,
  • After which I would switch to CeraVe in the tub both for my face and as body lotion--this makes some people break out, but with my skin type I can risk it. I think I'm going to skip toning entirely.

    As for shaving "down there", I've been advised to just use those electric buzzers they use for hair cuts. Leaves a stubble but worth not having ingrown hairs. (Sorry for the gross imagery). Otherwise, I would imagine the same rules apply as for men avoiding ingrown hair on their face, which comes with a plethora of articles and products. Not wearing tight jeans/pants two or three days after shaving helps (men are advised to not wear tight collars after shaving to avoid ingrown hair), as does using shaving cream. Also, those round electric shavers are supposed to be better than razors because they don't "dig" at the hair under the follicle and facilitate ingrown hair.

    Not using a shaving cream allows the razor to irritate your skin, and following that with a body wash, no matter how gentle and natural, will likely cause your skin to itch. Source: I stubbornly refused shaving cream for years. Still skip it sometimes out of laziness, but life is so much better when I at least remember to shave my legs before rinsing off my soap lather in the shower.

    Oh and I started drinking 3 liters of water a day. Absolute game changer for my skin. Yay!
u/croissantstastegood · 2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

It’s not so much a mask as it is a odorless gel that you rub on your face and then it turns into flaky bits (think the stuff that comes off when you use an eraser)

u/[deleted] · 1 pointr/SkincareAddicts

There are a lot of good suggestions here already. As someone mentioned, Lush products can be really harsh. They tend to include a lot of oils that can actually be quite irritating, worse if your skin barrier is damaged from dryness, so it's probably best to stay away from that brand while your skin is healing. Cerave is the best, since the ceramides it contains will help repair the skin barrier and help your skin retain moisture better. The cream is great, but you probably need even more moisture than it can provide, so you may want to layer under something like Vanicream, which is ultra moisturizing and hypoallergenic and contains some mineral oil to seal everything in (but isn't sticky at all). In my experience, used in moderate amounts, Vanicream also works really nicely as a moisturizing makeup primer for dry skin. I also recommend & Other Stories Plush Balm as an occasional salve. It's made with cocoa butter, shea butter, and other great healing ingredients, but can be comedogenic if you're acne-prone, so for me personally I can't use it more than a couple days per week.
Removing makeup with something like a cleansing oil (Neutrogena makes a good affordable one) followed by Cerave hydrating cleanser is also good to prevent your skin from drying out. Try to avoid the urge to exfoliate too often while your skin is healing, as it can damage the new skin that's forming! In my experience chemical exfoliators like Cure Aqua Gel are less harsh when my skin is going through a particularly dry, sensitive skin spell. Good luck!

u/FiveEightNine · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I know this isn't exactly cheap (sorry!) but this is the best exfoliator I have ever used, and it is very gentle.

u/lovebugx · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

The only additional product I'd suggest is Cure Natural Aqua Gel: It provides super gentle exfoliation for all those flakes. Good luck! x

u/BombayAndBeer · 1 pointr/Makeup

Cure is the original version Japanese version of the Peter Thomas Roth product and it’s literally half the price.

u/alyxxg · 1 pointr/MakeupAddiction

i've been using cure to exfoliate my face for awhile now, but i've recently started using it on my lips as well. i think it's a lot more gentle than a scrub. i also always sleep with the bite agave mask after using liquid lipsticks!

u/wanderluxe · 1 pointr/TheGirlSurvivalGuide

I exfoliate with Cure Natural Aqua Gel, then I use a fairly thick layer of Clinique's Moisture Surge. This usually takes care of any flakiness or redness, but if it's still an issue when I have to go out, I use a tinted moisturizer. It covers up the redness and isn't as drying as a foundation so the flaking doesn't get worse.

u/Jleahs · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

is the cure the same brand as the one that makes this product because i know some people really like this product

u/jenacious · 1 pointr/acne

I have cystic acne and the most ridiculously dry, sensitive skin. Most things marked for "sensitive skin" still irritates my face. It's a real pain in the ass.

For an exfoliater I use Natural Aqua Gel Cure (not an affiliate link, I just use this product). It's on sale right now, too. I pay $45 for it normally but it lasts quite a while.

There's some debate on if it "works" or not but I love it. I can't scrub my face, I can't put chemicals on my face without looking like a lobster. This stuff is awesome. It keeps the flakiness at bay and my face so soft.

Apply it with dry hands to dry skin and rub in circular motions. It's the best!

u/tea-fox · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

I had this issue! It's so frustrating. I too have combination skin, for reference. The things I've found that have helped me are the Cure Natural Aqua Gel (this made the biggest difference I think) and religiously using Paula's Choice 2% BHA gel. I've also been moisturizing a ton and have found that using the Hada Labo Gokujun Lotion helps my skin absorb moisture better, and/or helps combat some of the dehydration that I think causes flakiness for me.

Some other things I have tried and found helpful: using a sheet mask at least once a week, and gentle exfoliation using something like a konjac sponge once a day. Make sure none of the cleansers you're using are too harsh/drying for you skin too!

u/chiakix · 1 pointr/Tokyo

It's always scarce on real store because Chinese tourists buy up...

u/hybridvenice · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

Chemical exfoliation is a good idea. I use this. It's good b/c no much how much I apply, it'll remove only the dead skin cells and not overexfoliate my normal skin-something I did all the time when I physically exfoliated.

I guess just see what your dermatologist recommends. You're a lot more conscientious with skincare than I was when I was your age!

You could be experiencing hyperpigmentation, something I don't know too much about, but there is a link in the sidebar. Check whether the advice there is relevant.

Did your parents have acne? How did they deal with it? My dad had acne until he was in his early 20s and it cleared on its own. The same thing happened to me. I didn't see any dermatologists b/c all of them in my area are crap.

u/Minivann · 1 pointr/SkincareAddiction

To begin, I have extremely sensitive skin that is very prone to acne so exfoliating is always very tricky for me. It is also very dehydrated unless I coat it in aquaphor healing ointment day and night (which is amazing).

RAVE: 2% Hydroquinone Fade Cream Dark Spot Corrector & Melasma Treatment - Also Contains Salicylic Acid, Kojic Acid, Azelaic Acid, Lactic Acid -

I've started using this serum because I needed something with hydroquinone to help fade my dark spots left from where I had acne. The chemical exfoliants in this cream are definitely a bonus and have been kicking ass!

RAVE: Natural Aqua Gel Cure 250ml

This stuff is crazy awesome. I thought I was exfoliating gently and effectively with a konjac sponge but after using this stuff one time, it got rid of all of the dead skin cells sitting on top of my face that I didn't know were there. I'm sure this dead skin has been a cause of acne for a long time. Anyway, this stuff is very gentle and makes your skin looks so bright and soft. Highly recommend. My skin couldn't be happier.

RAVE: Aquaphor healing ointment.
This stuff has saved my dehydrated and acne prone skin. Can't believe I didn't try it sooner. It's like instant and lasting relief for irritated, inflamed, or dry skin and my pimples have never healed faster.

u/cherrybombedd · 1 pointr/AsianBeauty

I really like Cure Natural Aqua Gel as an exfoliator. It's great for sensitive/dry skin, but I find it works best when my skin is bone-dry, before any cleansing whatsoever. I also like using my second cleanser with a konjac sponge, which also works for exfoliation.

u/cyrodyjox · 0 pointsr/SkincareAddiction

Olay Renewal Cleanser.

What would you recommend for gentle cleanser and moisturizer? Is this something I should experiment with? Can you help me decide which of the following products I should use? If not I can just try all of them. I think it's worth it to throw away some money for experimentation.

Possible moisturizers I might buy:


    Possible cleansers:


    A quick search for chemical exfoliation shows me this. Should I try this later on?

    Edit: I noticed some of these products have acids in them. I guess I can use regular hand soap for a couple days until my skin recovers. Then I can start using these products.
u/harropretty · -2 pointsr/AsianBeauty

Yes. I love pore strips. I'm using this and so far it has been really good for me. Feels extremely good to see the little heads. No side effect, and I'll calm the redness down with a cooling moisturizer or mask.

If you are worried over damaging your skin, you should just exfoliate more often to clean off the dead skin cells on the skin surface, and prevent less clogging. I recommend gel based exfoliators (Japan's Cure Natural Aqua Gel is good) and NOT those with beads. The ones with beads are really damaging to skin.
