The Moisturizer comes in a transparent white 50ml glass jar with a solid white cap and blue writings. The glass elements give the product a more premium feel and the blue delivers exactly on its main ingredient which is water.
This cream is suitable for all skin types.
The product has a velvety texture that is quite thick but once spread onto the face it glides on effortlessly.
To get the most out of the moisturizer, guidelines are to make it part of the regular skincare regimen and apply it to clean skin every morning under makeup, and every night after cleansing and rubbing over the face, neck and décolleté. The product can be used alone or after your serum. For better absorption, we applied the gel with circular motions and used it instead of the daily moisturizer.
Most moisturizers improve skin hydration by limiting the evaporation of water from the skin and/or by binding moisture in to the outer layer of the skin with humectants such as Glycerin. Nevertheless, our skin also has its own hydration system – the Aquaporins. These microscopic channels transport water between skin cells and support skin hydration from within.
The innovation of Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE is that it is formulated with nature-identical Gluco Glycerol, a state-of-the-art hydrating ingredient, which enhances the natural strength of these Aquaporins and even increases their number in the skin. This means that, in addition to limiting evaporation and binding water into the outer layers of skin, Eucerin AQUAporin ACTIVE enhances skin’s own moisture supply thus maintaining the skin’s hydration balance.
The velvety texture of the product allows for quick and complete absorption by the skin. It is pure moisture that penetrates quickly, deeply and continuously – without overloading the skin or feeling heavy. So, when it comes to moisturizing the skin, it is safe to say that after 2 weeks of usage, our skin felt infused with moisture that is locked in relieving the skin from any tightness and leaving the skin smooth and supple.
An added positive result is that the moisturizer contains SPF25 UVB + UVA protection which effectively helps protect the skin against UV-induced skin damage.
The only downside to the product is that since it comes in a jar format, it has more contact with the air and dries quicker forming a thin film on the surface that could jeopardize any results.
Eucerin Aqua Porin Active UV Cream retails for 42$/50ml which is more expensive then Cetaphil UV Cream sold for 35.5$/50ml or even Vichy UV Protect Skin Defense Daily Care sold for 30$/40ml.
