Have you ever wondered that the ultimate answer to the question of life, the universe and everything is probably not the number 42 but this, a product called “Cure”? I really find the product name quite amusing.
Can’t you just imagine the inventor of this product having eureka moment and screaming at the top of his lungs, “I found the cure!” And then, hearing the news, a flock of curious people from all corners of the world traveleved in carriages for miles and miles only to find out that the cure is nothing but just an exfoliator.
What is this product that people rave about in the internet? And is it worth the internet hype and the cha-ching that’s about to leave your wallet?
I came across this product while I was aimlessly looking around at Beauty Bar. And when you look around aimlessly, you’re very susceptible to a soft sell by a saleslady. Not even a hard sell. Just a super gentle push with the words, “Miss, you should try this product. Yes, you can test it on your hands.”
Seeing how the product gently exfoliates my skin and seeing beads of dead skin cells gently rubbing off, I then realize that I’m at counter with this product at hand.
The Cure Natural Aqua Gel seems like one of those products you see on the Home Shopping Network. It’s too good to be true but will it blend?
Well, it doesn’t blend but the product works. You just put a small dab of gel on your fingertips and massage it in a circular motion for 1 minute to 30 seconds on a clean and dry face.
Voila! Your face will be full of what looks like eraser shavings. Yes, it’s quite disgusting so don’t forget to wash it off your face. Oh, and don’t forget to apply moisturizer.
From the packaging, the product claims that it is made of natural ingredients so it’s safe to use. Anyway, I trust that this is really made with safe ingredients because it’s made in Japan for the Japanese consumers.
One thing I know about Japan aside from anime is that it protects its consumers through some kind of rigorous cosmetic regulation. So I’m not going to list all the ingredients down. But in case you’re wondering, here’s a photo to enjoy during a toilet break.
What I Like About This Product
- It’s not like a lot of exfoliators on the market that uses beads or scrubs which makes my skin sore after use. Instead, my skin feels soft and vibrant without redness.
- You can use it with the rest of your body. Although, I find that doing so can be quite expensive. The label claims that the bottle will last up to four months if used twice a week on the face. I intend to make it last by just using it on my face.
- Three months of use and I haven’t had breakouts yet. That’s always a good thing, right? In fact, I think it helps improve the quality of my skin.
What I Don’t Like Much About This Product
- I find that the price can be quite hefty. This is the first skincare product that I purchased that’s worth more than 500. In fact, the product cost Php 1,500. Yikes! It’s not so budget friendly.
- I do hope that Cure can be sold in smaller bottles that cost around Php 600. It would hurt less to part with money if it’s less than its current price.
- Also, since it’s expensive, I don’t use this twice a week. I also find myself sticking to the twice a week routine if I have an event to go to. Otherwise, it’s just 3 times a month. Because I’m broke that’s what.
Cure is quite effective in getting the job done and sloughing all of those dead skin cells. If you have no qualms about the price, I definitely recommend this product as part of your skincare routine.
