Reading: Curél intensive moisture care moisture lotion iii enrich reviews
made in: japan
what is it?: an essence/toner/lotion that “preps” the skin for the addition of a moisturizer/serum.
Brand Description: A soothing fluid that “instantly” hydrates dry, sensitive skin to relieve tightness and lock in moisture.
do I agree?: I think this does a decent job of “kick-starting” the skin’s hydration process. i think oily + dry skin should be included in the description. This is a good, lightweight skin prep that provides light hydration (not a thick product), to prepare the skin for the next step in skin care. I often swipe my face with a cotton pad using this, and I like to do it with watery textures (less slippage), so it does a good job!
supposedly good for: dry and sensitive skin
what I think: all skin types. oily and oily-combo I would still find this comfortable to wear as it is like water. even those in hot + humid weather. I think dry skin types will not find this thick or moisturizing/moisturizing enough, however it is meant to be applied under thicker products.
cruelty free?: yes

packaging: plastic bottle with a cap that ‘clicks’ to let you know you’ve insured it. it also has a bomb. I love the packaging, it’s sturdy, looks nice and I like the clear bottles to see how much product I have left. i like that this also comes in a pump packaging (easy to dispense).

directions: after cleansing and drying, pump 5-6 pumps of product into hand and apply to face and neck, followed by a serum or moisturizer.
how i use it: i sometimes use it as a toner or an essence (right after a toner). As a toner, I apply this (3-4 pumps) onto a cotton pad and swipe across face to remove any excess dirt or after toner, then apply 2-3 pumps, applying with fingers.
Key ingredients: glycerin + arginine (skin identical/skin barrier strengthener). allantoin (soothing). It also contains hydrogenated (broken) castor oil (which is what I think gives it that yellowish tinge). to provide some of the emollients. this also contains betaine + butylene glycol to moisturize/hydrate the skin.
full ingredients: water, glycerin, butylene glycol, betaine, methyl gluceth-20, peg-32, peg-60 hydrogenated castor oil, allantoin, succinic acid, arginine, eucalyptus globulus leaf extract , methylparaben
note: the incident coder has a full ingredient breakdown here
Texture: Very watery and light texture. Very similar in texture to isntree’s fresh green tea toner, except it’s not drying, and the finish is very different (this one has a smooth/smooth finish). the liquid itself is the same color as the sk-ii treatment essence (without the colorants).
this is not sticky or sticky and can be layered. absorbs quickly into the skin (as it is a starter skin prep/skin care product).
you can see this looks watery + light.
Easy to spread on the skin, and it takes a short time to start absorbing into the skin once spread. It also provides the skin with a very pleasant smooth and soft finish.
this feels refreshing on the skin. It’s the same feeling that I imagine plants have when they are watered. it leaves skin feeling soft and hydrated (although not as intensely hydrating as isntree plus hyaluronic acid toner – review here).

fragrance?: smells very faintly of isntree fresh green tea toner to me.
good under makeup?: yes, that’s fine 🙂
How long have I been using this?: I’m halfway there and that took me 3 months to get to almost daily afternoon use.
the effect?: Relatively hydrates skin that is primed for serums/creams etc. leaves skin with a nice smooth finish.
what I like:
- love the packaging (sturdy + travel friendly).
- no added fragrance or essential oils
- didn’t sting or irritate my skin
- has a nice finish and makes skin feel soft/smooth (makes skin feel soft. i think this is from hydrogenated castor oil + glycerin).
- Not ridiculously hydrating/moisturizing compared to a thicker toner (which is why I think oily/combination skin types can use and not feel too stuffy).
- light weight (some people prefer more viscosity/thickness than a toner/essence/lotion (I think if you want something thicker then pyunkang yul essence toner is great, check here.
what I don’t like:
overall score and conclusion: 4/5 – This is a lovely, watery, skin-preparing product! I like the smooth and soft finish it gives to the skin. It’s not ridiculously hydrating/moisturizing, but it’s definitely better than muji toners (it’s a bit thicker than them). i think all skin types could use this. I have oily combination skin and I don’t find it too thick or stuffy. i wonder if dry skin would prefer something thicker like the pyunkang yul essence toner here) or isntree’s hyaluronic acid plus toner. this doesn’t smell offensive, it sits really well under skin products and I like the packaging!
Would I Buy It Again?: If I want a toner/essence hybrid that also gives skin a soft/smooth finish, I would!
Fooled?: Texture-wise it’s similar to isntree’s fresh green tea toner but it’s intended for oily skin (loaded with tannins, etc). muji toners are very watery, light and basic (here).but i think this product is actually a dupe for muji toners because it gives the skin a smooth finish and doesn’t feel like it doesn’t absolutely nothing on the skin, i can feel it has “primed” the skin.
My skin type: I am acne prone and have slightly dehydrated combination skin. my skin is often tight where my cheeks and eye area and the outer parts of my face are. my t zone is fat my skin is not a fan of thick/heavy formulas so i opt for light formulas to avoid clogging. My skin doesn’t like essential oils either, and I try to avoid fragrances when I can.
