Aquation Gentle Moisturizing Cleanser – Review

Aquation Gentle Moisturizing Cleanser comes in a grey plastic bottle with a nozzle dispenser. The cleanser has a liquid-y gel like consistency and a pearly appearance. It emulsifies with water but doesn’t lather up much. As a result, you might end up using more product to get more lather. It is a gentle cleanser that cleanses skin off dirt and washable makeup like a tinted moisturizer. I don’t feel it does well in getting rid of foundations, lipsticks and eyeliners – even water soluble ones. It is fragrance free. What I dislike about this product is the thin film of residue it tends to leave on my skin. Post wash and after patting the skin dry, my skin feels slippery like there is an invisible barrier. It doesn’t feel oily or greasy – just slippery. I cannot for the life of me figure out why. Because of this, I have to go over with another cleanser to get rid of this slippery feel. Overall this seemed to have been a promising product but falls short of all the claims.

Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion – Review

Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion comes in a grey plastic bottle exactly same as the Aquation Gentle Moisturizing Cleanser. It comes fitted with a nozzle dispenser. The lotion is white in color and has the same gel like liquid-y consistency as the cleanser. The lotion is lightweight and absorbs quickly into skin. It makes the skin really soft and hydrated. It doesn’t cause any greasiness. As opposed to 24 hour hydration claims, I believe this lotion will keep you hydrated for about 3-4 hours (for my skin) or more if you have normal skin. Suffice to say unlike claimed to be for all skin types, Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion is ideal for Normal to Oily skin.

Aquation Moisturizing Cream – Review

Aquation Moisturizing Cream comes in a grey plastic tub with a nozzle dispenser. The cream is white color and as expected is of thicker consistency – heavier than the Aquation Moisturizing Lotion formula. The cream spreads easily on the skin and absorbs well without appearing greasy. I have dry skin so this cream has helped well in keeping my skin hydrated. Again, I don’t think it hydrates for 24 hours as claimed. Once absorbed, on its own it keeps my skin soft and moisturized for 6-8 hours. I also use this on my elbow joints and knees which tend to get dry. This cream is very similar to the drugstore favorites like Cera-Ve and Cetaphil which are also dermatologist recommended brands. Unlike claimed to be for all skin types, Aquation Moisturizing Cream is ideal for dry to very dry skin.

Final Verdict

Overall Aquation skincare has a few promising products that delivers good hydration. There is definitely potential for much more. If this brand interests you, then I’d recommend trying their lotion or cream depending on your skin type. The cleanser is a big fail for me so I wouldn’t recommend it.
