Aquallure Review and Giveaway [CLOSED]

Aquallure is the newest skin cream from the family of products including RevitaShape and Complexion MD, both of which I have reviewed and given away before.  It's so new that it hasn't even been launched yet, which is why I was excited to try it before it was available to the public.  This cream is not a natural or organic, but I have been assured by their PR representative, Brenda, (who also spoke with the manufacturer) that it is cruelty-free.

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.

My completely unflattering before and after photos!
To be completely honest, I didn't notice much visual differences in my skin after using this cream for a month, but I did notice a difference in how my skin felt.  I think that it definitely feels smoother and better hydrated.  Two of my main skin concerns are redness and flakiness, and my skin was definitely less flaky after using this cream.  I wish I could comment on how well it reduced wrinkles, but judging by the effects it had on my skin I wouldn't be surprised if it helped to diminish those well also.

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.
