A gel texture that I can finally use!

Initially, I bought this for my son but it smelled so good that i started using it for myself. I love this! I have somewhat sensitive combo skin and i don't really like most moisturisers because they make me break out or made my skin red and splotchy. The aqua gel has not only made a visible difference in two weeks but the softness it leaves doesn’t go away when you wash it off. It has a nice rosy smell which is not overpowering either. It can feel slightly sticky when it is humid but it goes away after a while. I use it morning and night with no oiliness or negative product reactions, love the fact I can use it on my kids too which makes it very handy as we go on staycation! Lovely product and would repurchase again.

Quite good. Didn't work miraclelously on my son's rash, however did help to a certain degree. Didn't have cooling effect. I now use it on my face pimples sometimes, did help to a certain degree too.


Smells lovely!!

I have tried numerous creams to hydrate my son’s dry cheeks, but none provided lightweight yet lasting moisture. Thus, I am so glad to have found this Aqua Gel! Upon application, it glided smoothly on his cheeks and absorbed immediately. And oh gosh, it smells heavenly! Love this product!
