안녕! A new Korean skincare brand DCS Korea has set its foot in Singapore with 6 products from its hydrating range AQUADERM. The key ingredient in every DCS product is the volcanic sea water all the way from Jeju! This rare ingredient is valued for its mineral content which helps in tissue elasticity, cell damage prevention, reduces excessive sebum production and iron that helps to improve the skin’s ability to repair and regenerate.
AQUADERM has its own special ingredient, the agave cactus extract which is the key to improve skin hydration. The agave cactus has the remarkable ability to retain almost 100% of its moisture despite the most extreme desert conditions. It also has excellent water storage ability, strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier and restoring vitality to even the driest of skins. I have tried the products for a few months and here is my take on them! smile
Super Aqua Cleansing Water 150ml, $30.50
On days that I am not using any makeup, I would use this cleansing water to remove my sunblock. I love how it leaves my skin feeling refreshed. How I use this product is to saturate some cotton pads with it and wipe it all over my face. It helps to remove the sunblock and impurities without tightening the skin and also leaves the skin clean and moist.
Super Aqua Foam Cleanser 150ml, $30.50
Double cleansing is important, at least for me! I mixed some water with the cleanser to form a light, creamy lather, using a circular motion to cleanse my face. This product deeply cleanses the pores with fine foam particles and is super safe for those with sensitive skin.
Super Aqua Toner 150ml, $33.50
I tried two different ways to apply the toner. Either using cotton pads or pouring some on my palm and gently patting it on my skin. The toner is lightweight and is easily absorbed into the skin, without leaving any stickiness.
Super Aqua Ampoule 30ml, $53
The ampoule has the highest concentration of enriching active ingredients. It helps to build up skin resilience and moisture, protecting the skin from external stimulation by forming a thin and transparent film on the skin’s surface. I use about two pumps of the serum on a daily basis to give my skin a super hydrating boost!
Super Aqua Night Cream 50ml, $41 and Super Aqua Day Cream 50ml, $41
The night cream contains agave, lavender, cornflower and pansy extracts that help to restore the skin to a healthy state. It also keeps the skin moisturised and brightened until the next morning. The day cream provides rich moisture and nutrition from lavender and pansy extracts. It comes with an additional UV blocking function SPF20/PA+ that protects the skin from external elements. I absolutely love the texture of both creams which leaves my skin well-moisturised and radiant looking.
Koreans are known for their hospitality and generosity. We were treated to a delicious meal at Hyangtogol Korean Restaurant during the press event, the awesome beef is to die for! OMG I can’t wait for the trip to Korea next month! bigsmile
