Beautyknot ~ My Skin Care Diary

Archive for November 2010


My purpose is to get a gel moisturizer from drugstore. That is not a difficult task actually, plenty of choices in local pharmacies. When Mandom Beauty Barrier Repair Baby Moist Essence claims to give you a “heavenly smooth skin like baby”, of course I am no longer naive to believe the miracle claim.



With nano-technology, the gel is lightweight, refreshing and silky; it quickly sets a sheen gel film on skin, leaving skin matte and nice glowing. Opposed to some gel moisturizers that I had tried, this does not leave greasy nor shiny film. I love it is fragrance free too.



Overall it kept my skin well hydrated in warm season, no skin tightness eventhough I spent long hours in air-conditioning. Despite it could not stop those dry lines showing up, I find this is sufficient for hydrating purpose to keep the skin soft and supple. Besides, it did not cause me irritation or breakout (By the way, I am not acne-prone), just it lacks of soothing ability when my skin was “fragile” or irritated.



Pleasant to use, suitable for all skin types and it fits the humid climate in South East Asia very well. It retails for ~USD14.50/40g and I used it up in a month (to be strictly, it is 30 days ++), 1~2 times per day. If you are looking for a budget gel moisturizer and feeling fine with the ingredient list, this is fine to try but, if you are not satisfied with the ingredient, there are better option out there.


Rating: …. )))    Satisfied. Unlikely to buy again.
