It's time for another mini review. 8D
I've gotten tons of samples recently that I haven't tried yet. I love samples as it give you a chance to try out a product for free before purchasing a product (of course).
Today I'm going to give my first impression on SKIN79's moisturizer SÚE Hydrating Gel. (I don't really know how to pronounce the accented U here ~_~.) But anyways, the only SKIN79 products I've tried are their BB creams, which I find pretty decent. So I'm hoping this skin care product will be as satifying as well, but I'm sure it's difficult to mess up on a moisturizer. xP
Ok, if you want to see my first impression on this moisturizer, please keep reading! ;D
Simple packaging, though the print is off-center, no biggie. hehe

Ah English description, I like!
It claims to contain HYDRA-NGC and Phyto-Marine which in turn has skin activating components. Sounds very complex and scientific, but skin activating compounds? It activate the skin? or skin activated compounds? haha I'm just dwelling on the details here. xP

Some more English description.
Full product is 50ml.
Price is around $15-20 CAD.
It's just a gel moisturizer in appearance, and when applied on face it's clear, nothing too special.
It smells really nice! It has a sweet floral scent, but it also kind of reminds of Lychee! Although it is kind of strong, so it may not be suitable for some.
Since it's a gel-type moisturizer, it's cooling and refreshing on the skin, but also quite moisturizing. The consistency is thicker than what I would have imagined but it doesn't leave and sticky residue behind at all! It goes on very smooth and leaves my skin feeling very smooth too, as if I adds a protective covering over it, but not heavy. I used this after I washed my face and it feel absolutely wonderful! Hydrating, not sticky, light, and smells great! :D
If I were to compare this to the Etude House Moistfull Collagen Cream that I reviewed last time, I have to say I prefer this one for it's gel-like texture and cooling sensation.
Will I purchase the Full Product?
Yes! It has all the properties of a great moisturizer (for me at least). And I pick gel type moisturizers over cream ones in general, so I would want to purchase this once I've ran out of my current one. The relatively cheap price is a huge plus too!
Do you prefer cream type or gel-type moisturizers?
I mostly lean towards gel-types but when it's super cold, I prefer cream ones!
Thanks for reading!
See you next post~ ^_^
