Senka Mineral Essence UV, Tsubaki Head Spa & Aqualabel Whitening Jelly Essence 2014-06-23 12.09.19

Starting off my review with Aqualabel’s Whitening Jelly Essence

As mentioned above, this product has 4 functions:

1. Lotion; blends perfectly into skin as dewy essence turns into lotion.
2. Emulsion; Double Hyaluronic Acid permeates, fills and retains in the stratum comeum, achieving moist, smooth skin.
3. Serum; whitening ingredient m-tranexamic acid inhibits & prevents dark spot formation.
4. Astrigent; minimizes pores that tends to dilate or sag.

The jelly consistency of Aqualabel Whitening Jelly Essence.2014-06-28 14.23.14

When gently spread across the skin. Shows strong signs of hydration that doesn’t easily fully permeate the skin, requires slight massage for it to be fully absorbed.2014-06-28 14.23.39

Skin after product is fully absorbed, flushed and hydrated.

I’ve been using this product for a while now, replacing it with my moisturizing(emulsion) and using it after my lotion. The texture is just nice as my moisturizer replacement and I really like the super hydrating effect of this product. You should know by now that I am a huge fan of Hyaluronic Acid, its one ingredient often found in products I review which I rave above, it locks in 1000x (some sources say 2000x) its own weight in water, so when the product claims Double Hydraluronic acid, I’m like, does your skin need that much water, or more like can our skin really hold that much water. Nonetheless its a product I’m enjoying for sure! A tip I have is to apply this on your lips to prime it like a lip essence before applying on lipstick.

Senka’s Mineral Essence UV, lightly yellow tinted.2014-06-28 14.24.11

Spreads smoothly and leaves no residue. When I apply it on my face it leaves a powder smooth (versus silky smooth as marketed) finishing which I find remarkable and also enjoy the texture!

On days when I want less coverage I just leave home with this as my make up base:
