According to the manufacturer, Aquallure "is a potent antioxidant rejuvenation cream which works to rehydrate skin and restore its healthy glow. Aquallure contents a powerful blend of antioxidants, moisturizers and peptides to rehydrate skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines. In clinical studies, Aquallure increased skin hydration by 440% in two days and reduced fine lines by as much as 60% in 4 weeks."
The key ingredients listed on the package are a-Lipooic Acid, Palmitoyl Tetrapeptide/Oligopeptide, and Hyaluronic Acid, which help protect against free radicals, maintain skin's youthful appearance, and promote skin hydration, respectively. I would normally prefer to use a product with organic and natural ingredients, but I'm not entirely opposed to trying a product like Aquallure. The cream's main purpose is to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, but since I don't have any at the ripe old age of 23, I was more interested in seeing if it would moisturize my skin well and cause it to look and feel more firm.
I liked using Aquallure as a moisturizer -- I used it nightly for four full weeks before writing up this review. As you can see from the photo above, the cream is a tangerine/pink color. It has a light scent that, to me, smells like a mixture of floral and baby powder. It's a very thick cream, so the 1 fl oz. jar will last you for quite a while. I barely needed to use any to cover my entire face and neck. What I liked best about this cream is that it felt so smooth going on and that it absorbed into my skin quickly. I felt like my skin was extremely hydrated after putting it on.

Bottom Line: I would recommend Aquallure as a potent night moisturizer (or day, especially in the winter) for those who are looking to moisturize and improve the smoothness of their skin. I was pleased with how my skin felt after a month of use.
