Happy Tuesday everyone!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a skincare product review, what with all of the holiday posts and everything, so today, I’m finally back with a review of one of my most recent beauty finds – Nature Republic’s Super Square Max Moisture Watery Cream! Wow, that was sure a mouthful hahaha!
First of all, for those of you who don’t know about Nature Republic’s famed and esteemed Super Aqua Max Watery Creams, they come in three options – the Fresh cream, Combination cream, and Moisture cream. The Fresh cream is for individuals with oily skin, while the Combination cream is for those who have more normal and/or combination skin, and of course, the one that I’m going to be reviewing, the Moisture cream, is for the dry skin peeps out there! This is actually one of my favorite aspects about this line from Nature Republic – the three different creams means there’s an option out there for everyone!
Now moving on to the details of the product… Made with rich deep sea minerals from Hawaii’s Kona sea water, the cream includes 30 kinds of moisturizing sea ingredients which penetrate quickly into the skin, providing ample moisture and hydration. The cream utilizes an aqua holding system that gives a moisture-pack-like hydration shield that lasts for long hours throughout the day, providing soluble collagen and lecithin ingredients to give dry skin nutrition and moisture for an overall healthier complexion.
True to its boastful list of skin benefits, the Max Moisture Watery Cream feels very watery when first applied, but it also absorbs really fast, giving skin such a silky feeling throughout the day. I love how quickly the skin absorbs it. For those who are very opposed to that “sticky” feeling of moisturizers, this cream is definitely a great choice for you! The skin literally drinks it up, and it doesn’t feel sticky or greasy at all despite the Max Moisture version being the “heaviest” formula amongst the three choices.
It also smells very fragrant and fresh, a scent that I’ve really come to love. It’s a light floral scent that’s very subtle and feminine, and even for those of you who usually avert scents, this moisturizer’s light fragrance will be doable because it’s very fresh yet understated.
And now for the final verdict… Though I find the Moisture Cream to be pretty hydrating, it’s definitely more suited for the warmer summer months. Since it’s been cold recently, my skin feels a little tighter than usual, and this cream, while very hydrating, isn’t enough for my dry, parched skin. Though I know a lot of people don’t like that “sticky” feeling of moisturizers, I actually really like it because I can literally feel my skin drinking up all of that hydration. As a result, though, I found Nature Republic’s quick-absorbing formula to be a little light, at least for my winter skincare routine. I’ll definitely be reusing it again come spring and summer because I’m quite impressed with it (especially since it’s such a deal at only $17 per jar)! 🙂
I hope you all found my review of Nature Republic’s Super Aqua Cream helpful. Have you ever tried it? If you have, what do you think about it? And if not, what moisturizer are you currently using? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear from all of you!
