NATURE REPUBLIC SUPER AQUA MAX COMBINATION WATERY CREAM REVIEW


Hello, y'all! How's everyone doing during this period of social distancing. I am really praying for this situation to get better and for the health workers who are on the frontline for protection and strength. 

School's closed for us and since we are done with classes for the school year there's no online assignments or anything to do except self-study. Most of my classmates are home with family but the international have to stay in school (I assume to decrease exposure at airports). So everyone is chilling, working or studying. I have been trying to get myself to be productive for the past one week, I think today was my most successful day of productivity hence this post coming forth.

SO today's post is a much-procrastinated review of my (now) second favorite face cream. Laneige Waterbank Moisture Cream is still my first (probably for now).

I got this cream from amazon not really thinking much about it or expecting anything, as I mentioned in my Skincare Wishlist, I want to try all the gel creams/ hyaluronic creams or light moisturizing creams I can find and see what I like what I don't as I adjust my skincare routine. My skin is combination with an oily T-zone but I have noticed as I am approaching 30, my dry areas are getting dryer so I no longer aim for mattifying products (unless its makeup). I now usually go for moisturizing skincare products but not the heavy ones: Just the light, watery creams that still keep me moisturized but not greasy/oily or balmy.

Nature Republic came out with a Super Aqua Max line for three of the four major skin types. There's one for dry, oily and for combination skin. They also recently came out with a new one under the same line: The Super Aqua Max EX Watery Cream.

The Super aqua Max line claims to be formulated with mineral-rich deep seawater from Hawaii's Kona Island and infused with hyaluronic acid and the combination cream contains a Silicone gel network system to create a moisture barrier.

The Aqua Sherbet Network System protects the skin from the external environment by forming a moisture film over the skin. Hyaluronic acid, a plant-derived moisturized by continuously maintaining moisture in combination skin for long hours.


INGREDIENTS:
SEA WATER, CYCLOPENTASILOXANE, GLYCERIN, CYCLOMETHICONE, DIMETHICONE, PEG-10 DIMETHICONE/VINYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, HYDROXYETHYL ACRYLATE/SODIU ACRYLOYLDIMETHYL TAURATE COPOLYMER, PIPER METHYSTICUM LEAF/ROOT/STEM EXTRACT, PORTULACA OLERACEA EXTRACT, PUERARIA THUNBERGIANA ROOT EXTRACT, GLYCYRRHIZA GLABRA (LICORICE) ROOT EXTRACT, PAEONIA LACTIFLORA ROOT EXTRACT, CNIDIUM OFFICINALE ROOT EXTRACT, ULMUS DAVIDIANA ROOT EXTRACT, AMARANTHUS CAUDATUS SEED EXTRACT, SARGASSUM MUTICUM EXTRACT, HYPNEA MUSCIFORMIA EXTRACT, ULVA LACTUCA EXTRACT, ECKLONIA CAVA EXTRACT, CODIUM TOMENTOSUM EXTRACT, AGARUM CRIBOSUM EXTRACT, ENTEROMORPHA COMPRESSA EXTRACT, LAMINARIA JAPONICA EXTRACT, DUNALIELLA SALINA EXTRACT, SARGASSUM FULVELLUM EXTRACT, PORPHYRA YEZOENSIS EXTRACT, FUCUS VESICULOSUS EXTRACT, LAMINARIA SACCHARINA EXTRACT, SPIRULINA PLATENSIS EXTRACT, JANIA RUBENS EXTRACT, GELIDIUM CARTILAGINEUM EXTRACT, MACROCYSTIS PYRIFERA EXTRACT, ALGAE EXTRACT, UNDARIA PINNATIFIDA EXTRACT, CODIUM FRAGILE EXTRACT, LAMINARIA CLOUSTONI EXTRACT, CHLORELLA MINUTISSIMA EXTRACT, HIZIKIA FUSIFORME EXTRACT, SALICORNIA HERBACEA EXTRACT, PIKEA ROBUSTA EXTRACT, HYDROLYZED ALGAE EXTRACT, HYDROLYZED ULVA LACTUCA EXTRACT, HAEMATOCOCCUS PLUVIALIS EXTRACT, LAMINARIA DIGITATA EXTRACT, SOLUBLE COLLAGEN, ALOE BARBADENSIS LEAF JUICE, SODIUM HYALURONATE, HYDROGENATED LECITHIN, SQUALANE, WATER, 1,2-HEXANDIOL, CARBOMER, POLYSORBATE 20, PEG-10 DIMETHICONE, TROMETHAMINE, SODIUM POLYACRYLATE, DIMETHICONE/VINYL DIMETHICONE CROSSPOLYMER, BUTYLENE GLYCOL, POLYSORBATE 60, BETAINE, ETHYLHEXYLGLYCERIN, DIPOTASSIUM GLYCYRRHIZATE, LACTOBACILLUS/ALGAE EXTRACT FERMENT, MACROCYSTIS PHRIFERA (KELP) PROTEIN, ALGAE OLIGOSACCHARIDES, CHLORELLA FERMENT, XANTHAN GUM, FRAGRANCE, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 19140, CI-42090

As you can see in the ingredients, it does contain many types of silicones (Cyclomethicone, Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone), Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract for brighteningand it contains some fragrance (which I don't usually buy fragranced items). But this one did not irritate my skin/eyes and the silicone cream did not feel "silicony" on application. For more information here's the skincarisma and cosdna information.










Its packaged in an aqua green glass jar, the cream appears gel-like in texture, a cool green color to match its packaging. Once absorbed in the skin it doesn't look greasy, just hydrated. 



I tried my moisture meter with it measuring my skin before use and a few minutes after application (forgot to do one in the morning after I wake up). 


FINAL THOUGHTS:
This cream is quite moisturizing and leaves my skin soft and hydrated when I wake up in the morning (even though I sleep under the air-conditioned).  It is very cooling to the skin upon application like putting cold water on your face, I love how refreshing it feels after applying. It is moisturizing without a greasy feeling and it doesn't dry with a sticky film or shiny feel. It's perfect for day or night. 

WILL REPURCHASE: Yes most definitely

Thanks for reading!!
