I thought that I’ve written this review a long time ago. I can’t really understand why I didn’t, or if I did, where it has gone! Mizu no Tenshi Skin Treatment Gel has been one of my staple beauty products for years. It’s a great option for those who would like a very lightweight, non-oily moisturiser that will deeply hydrate and soothe skin in an uncomplicated way.
This not-so-little moisturiser (pictured is the 150g tub) has been formulated for all skin types, but it is especially suited for oily or combination but at the same time easily aggravated. Its light, alcohol-free formula contains sodium hyaluronate and trehalose to help rebalance and rehydrate the skin, and dipotassium glycyrrhizate and allantoin for a soothing and calming effect. It’s an absolute gem when your skin has been crazy and just want to take everything back down to basics.
This hydrating gel absorbs perfectly into the skin to freshen and give instant relief without adding any heavy layers of product, so perfect for a one-step routine to get angry skin back on track or for an extra moisture-boost over a serum. If you have dry skin then you may find that it doesn’t cut the mustard on its own — Dr.Ci:Labo Aqua-Collagen-Gel has extremely nice texture and is more hefty. It’s not that it’s mattifying or tightening, it’s just that it disappears straight into the skin after application and doesn’t have any residue or slip that gives you that plump, juicy feel. But for normal, oily, or combination skins, this is perfect! It gives skin just enough hydration if you need something uncomplicated to layer over treatment serums or to pop on after cleansing.
The Mizu no Tenshi Skin Treatment Gel comes in a 50g, 150g, and 250g jar. The medium-sized 150g is ¥2,565 (approx. US$23.92) from Rakuten Global Market HERE (RRP ¥3,619), the small 50g jar is ¥1,232 (approx. US$11.49) HERE. You can also get it HERE from Amazon.com for US$25.84+.
