iWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizer Whitening Vita Review


The iWhite Korea Aqua Moisturizer Whitening Vita, a.k.a. the moisturizer for oily skin and for office people who freeze and get all the moisture sucked out of their lives for 8 to 9 hours a day. Lol. 

Description
A water-based moisturizer that hydrates skin with its natural and non-greasy formula. It leaves a cool, oil-free, and refreshing feeling on your skin. It helps prevent premature aging, protect skin from cellular damage, also hydrates and maintains firmness of skin. 



Directions
Apply an ample amount all over your clean face twice a day or as needed.

When I first saw it, I was kind of surprised since it was color blue and the texture is quite different. Usually, moisturizers are white, runny and creamy or a colorless runny gel-type. I've only had one moisturizer similar to this. It comes in a jar and it's quite expensive. No, let me rephrase. It's a high-end product that's very, very expensive. But seriously, I'd pick this Whitening Vita over that one any time. 

The texture isn't runny and not greasy. It's not really gel-type either. But as you can see from the swatch above, it just stays put where you apply it. And when you spread the product, you'll see the "water-based" feature it boasts of. The moment you spread the moisturizer, you feel the coolness and the watery texture it has. It hydrates asap and the skin absorbs it in seconds. See the swatch above? The first photo above looks okay and dry but after applying the moisturizer, it just looks healthier right? It's perfect before applying your makeup. Oh, did I mention it smells wonderful too? It smells relaxing and refreshing.

I'm not the most keen on using moisturizers before because I thought it would make my skin oilier. But as it turns out, skin gets oilier when it feels dry and it feels that it has to produce more sebum just to hydrate the skin. Upon learning that, that was the only time I started using moisturizers. I know right? Late bloomer. I found that it helped in applying foundation because it makes your skin smoother and hydrated. After taking a shower, I apply my eye cream and then I use this moisturizer. I use this Whitening Vita before applying my primer and before makeup.

What I love about it is that it just feels so smooth and it's not runny at all. I can control where I want the product to be because it's not dripping from my face. Haha. It makes my skin healthy, hydrated and and it just feels so light. It's also easily absorbed by my skin because after applying this moisturizer, it just takes seconds before I put on my primer. A bonus, it helps prevent premature aging. I'm hitting the quarter-life and I'm already feeling the effects of aging, so anything that helps my skin is a good thing and on top of the list!

Overall thoughts? Great moisturizer. Feels light, not greasy, smells great, not runny, lives up to its claims (even the skincare claims), easily absorbed by skin, just all the good things you can ask for in a bottle. The big 50ml bottle costs PHP 200 and if you're on the go, you can just buy them in 6ml sachets that cost PHP 20. It's available in all leading department stores.
