Curel Intensive Moisture Care Moisture Face Milk: The Ceramide functioning ingredient and Eucalyptus extract penetrate deeply into the stratum corneum so skin stays soft, deeply moisturized and resistant to external irritation. It helps to improve your skin's natural barrier function, soothe and protect skin from dryness. Intensely moisturizing yet it feels airy-light on skin.
The texture is definitely moisture milk while the consistency is really runny, but lightweight and airy on the skin when applied.
VERDICT: Scent wise, it's nothing out of the ordinary nor is it any special and to be honest I really can't detect any sort of scent to it. Although I thought I detected this really light and faint floral-esque scent, but I could be a little off there, so I am just going to skip the scent part in this review.
This moisture face milk's consistency is actually similar to milk cleansers as it is really the watery and runny type. Like most other users out there, if you saved the Moisture Face Milk for last, the previous other Moisture products are going to fool you into thinking that it has a slightly thicker consistency, before throwing a sucker punch at you by crazily flowing out of the bottle instead of the usual oozing method. I know, I almost lost half a small sample bottle. And please, don't laugh at the small sample bottle either. Samples are good as it lets you determine if the texture and consistency is up to you own standard of how a product is, whether the scent is to your liking and whether it does any good to your skin as promised or just feel like a waste of money cos you do not see any changes (or probably damages) to your skin after trying it out.
The texture is really airy light as it claims and without too much force nor effort exerted, I gently massage this product into my skin in really short a time. I didn't even realize that it was already absorbed into my skin the first time I tried out the sample, so I was essentially massaging my skin repeatedly hahaha xD What I like is that the surface of my skin totally looks different before and after application. Before application, I can see it lacks moisture but after using this, I can still my skin looking much more hydrated and moisturized. The after-feel after applying this product isn't the typical greasy nor sticky feeling either, which I am definitely grateful for.
Also because my face is a combination skin type and can get really oily-looking when the weather turned a little cold, I feel my skin really appreciates such a light and airy moisture milk meant for the face/skin. A definite choice to consider due to the hot and humid weather in sunny sauna-esque Singapore, considering that applying facial moisturizer in the day time is akin to asking it to come right back out of your pores due to the sweating part. I'm sure most of us girls have experienced this at some point in a sunny weather. You applied a light facial moisturizer at least an hour before stepping out of the sun, and the sun just decides to be relentlessly sunny in an attempt to make you sweat even more. You sweat. You take out a tissue to pat off the sweat and realized, the sweat is making your face feels a little more "slick" than usual when the tissue goes on your face. Yikes! You think you're sweating out sweat and your facial moisturizer all at the same time. I know... happens to me on a daily basis.
However, what I noticed about this product is that, the above didn't mentioned as compared to other facial moisturizers I've applied on before setting out of the house on a bright and sunny day. Sure, I did sweat a little. But not that much to the point where it feels like the product is being sweat out of my pores either.
And at the end, my skin felt calmed and soothed after using this product. It didn't feel like my skin was being aggravated nor irritated from using this product at all, despite the sample bottle being a tad too small to fully utilize for a whole week as I used it day and night. I also noticed that my skin feels and looks more "well-behaved" and no stray pimples showed up from out of nowhere too. Although it's light, but I felt it was more than enough for my skin without making it feel clogged up at the pores.
WHAT I THINK: Lightweight and airy, it actually calms and soothes my angsty, problematic combination skin and during the days I was using this, I noticed no new stray pimples making sudden appearances.
WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: This current Intensive line is not available for sample redemption. Current one should still be the Sebum range, if I do remember correctly.
