How’s weekend everybody!?? Mine was crap! I got stung by a “I-don’t-know-what” insect.. Though swell has reduced but the wound is still in pain.. T_T I hope I don’t die just like that…!
Anyway, today I’m gonna share with you something.. This time it’s not anything from Korea, nor Japan, nor Taiwan! It’s from *drumroll*
Any guess on the brand!??
Ta-daaa!!!! It’s La Roche-Posay!
Verdict? I think the BB Cream is awesome! The Aqua Fresh Gel? Nah, not for me..
Read on to find out more/why…
Long range UVA rays account for more than 75% of UVA rays. They reach the heart of dermis all-year long, even in cloudy weather, in the city or through windows, and trigger global damage to the skin quality. With new filter Uvinul A+, the La Roche-Posay Uvidea Aqua Fresh Gel offers superior protection on the whole UVA spectrum including long UVA, in a water-concentrated gel texture that is suitable for normal to oily skin types.
The Impact of Long Range UVA Rays
Since long UVA has the largest wavelength, it goes even deeper into the skin, up to a 3-level damage.
- Color Impact: It generates photo-oxidative stress which increases greying, causing dullness, uneven complexion and brown spots etc.
- Structural Impact: It generates cytotoixicity for fibroblasts which erodes the dermis and affects the skin surface quality. This is turn causes fine lines and visible pores to appear.
- Functional Impact: It generates dermal modifications that lower the immune defenses and overtime leads to increases sensitivity.
Is this making you bored?? Well, in short, Aqua Fresh Gel has superior daily sun protection in a fresh water-break concentrated gel texture. For a long-lasting pure skin sensation and prevents hyperpigmentation, complexion greying & UV aging. Protect Against UVA for 18 Times longer. Tested on Asian sensitive skin.
Read on to find out how I feel about this..
I was a bit shock that this “gel” is white.. It doesn’t looks like gel neither feels like one. Btw, one pump gives me this much of gel.. It’s not like I pump and pump and pump… LOL!
It’s lightweight.. It leaves a lil oily texture (for me) but not to the extend like you just dipped your face into a bowl of oil! I believe it’s becuase it can be use as a makeup base hence it has this “oily” factor.. (just my wild guess)..
Hmm.. overall, this is not my kinda moisturizer I will want to use daily. It’s too rich for me I suppose.. I have out-breaks after using this moisturizer.. T_T
