Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel reviewMonday, November 18, 2013
Olay AquAction to address both causes of skin moisture loss with the cutting-edge HydraLock technology powered by two ingredients – WSK and Niacinamide.
WSK – an ingredient from the white jelly leaf which was part of legendary Chinese beauty Yang Guifei’s beauty regimen – has been shown to outperform hyaluronic acid, which until now, was thought to be the gold standard hydrating ingredient. Tests have shown that WSK outperforms hyaluronic acid, weight-for-weight, in its ability to hold water.
Niacinamide helps address skin fatigue caused by inadequate dietary systems and everyday stressors. It gives skin the energy to renew itself, bringing it back to more youthful levels, which in turn enables skin to hold onto its own moisture more effectively. The AquAction technology, inspired by the legendary beauty of 8th Century Chinese royal consort Yang Guifei, has been refined, tested and proven on Asian women. Powered by HydraLock, AquAction delivers a new standard of hydration that is known fondly as “pump pump” bouncy skin – where skin cells that are well-hydrated and attain a full, rounded shape, giving skin a firm and elastic touch.
If I'm not mistaken, Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel is Olay's first gel moisturizer - or at least its the first gel moisturizer that I have used from Olay before as Olay mostly have cream moisturizers. If you haven't already know, my Mom is a big fan of Olay. She said that she literally grow up with it because she have used Olay products since she was a teenager and she's still a fan of it now. Her favourite products include Olay Total Effects 7-In-1 Anti-Ageing Night Cream and Olay Total Effects 7-In-1 Anti-Ageing Eye Cream (also recommended by Kevin Zhou aka Kevin 老师 on Taiwan Beauty Variety Show, 女人我最大.
What is it:
The star product of the Olay AquAction range, this lightweight gel immediately enhances the moisture level of dry skin with just one application. In fact, it continuously moisturizes and locks in water for up to 24 hours, to deliver “pump-pump” bouncy skin.
When I first opened Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel, the first thought that came to me was, "Wow. Its in blue." I don't know about you but I haven't seen or tried any gel moisturizer that is blue in color before.
Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel is rather lightweight which is good for combination or oily skin. I don't know if its just me or what but I felt this cooling sensation upon application. After the gel moisturizer sets in, Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel doesn't feel as sticky as it does when you first apply it onto your face.
I wake up to smooth skin the day after using Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel. For people whom spent long hours in air-conditioned environment, I recommend using a serum prior to using Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel to make your skin even more moisturized!
Personally, I would recommend using Olay Aquaction Long Lasting Hydration Gel at night instead of the day because when I used it under my regular sunblock, it emphasizes my huge pores. :X
