Hey guys!! Even if I was a total cosmetic ignorant until freshman year of college, when it comes to skincare I was always conscious. I was always at the drugstore back when I was a high school junior buying and trying out random stuff that I thought were going to be good for my skin. Coincidentally, that was also the time that K-dramas were starting to make a boom.
I have always admired their healthy glowing skin so when I saw any product with “Korea” on it, cha-ching! SOLD! Yes, I came across my go-to moisturizer by my childish whim, but I didn’t regret that compulsion one bit. So let me introduce to you my HG moisturizer, iWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizing Cream.
In the beginning of the month, Biocostech, the distributor of iWhite in the country, was kind enough to give me a long time supply of it so I’m really thankful.
iWhite Aqua Moisturizing Cream is a water based moisturizer refined by Bio-nanotechnology, the construction of particles with sizes in the nanometer range or smaller, but to put it more simple think… DNA~ish. Because of that “bio-nanotechnology” it made it more potent because the ingredients are manipulated on an atomic scale and putting those together.
Because it is water based, there is no sticky feeling at all but it does moisturize your face, big time. The first thing you would notice is the soothing and refreshing feeling after you apply it onto your skin. It may have to do with the key ingredients which are:
Believe it or not, we had tons of these growing up. There are lots of trees of these around our house, so good by the way… Ahem. These contain Arbutin, which is normally found in bear berries, wheat and pear skin, is an ether that inhibits Tyrosinase, an enzyme that controls melanin production. Therefore it prevents melanogenesis that often causes hyper pigmentation.
This is known as a potent antioxidant which helps knock out free radicals or chemical byproducts known to damage cells and at the same time. It contains phytonutrients that can stimulate and activate the skin’s metabolism and blood flow to regenerate and tone. Ginseng also helps in collagen regeneration which makes it a super Anti Aging ingredient.
This helps improve your skin’s elasticity, therefore it helps avoid the appearance of fine lines, stretchmarks and dark spots. It also helps in soothing your skin from inflammation, allergies, itching and sunburns. Aloe Vera also contains salicylic acid which is known for its anti-acne properties and vitamin C and E
The caffeine in Green Tea reduces irritation. It also has antioxidants to make the complexion appear brighter. It also contains anti-bacterial properties that helps prevent acne. It also contains Vitamin B that helps with skin and cell regeneration and C for brightening properties and collagen production.
One thing that made me like it even more is how it applies you can feel that it is very soothing and not sticky at all plus before it is absorbed in to your skin, you will see beads of water, like dew, that settles on top of your skin. Cool yah?
