It's been a while since the last time I wrote a blog post but now I'm back with a review on AQUTOP's products. Although the products were sent to me, as usual, my review is unbiased and purely based on my own experience in using the products. You can read the disclaimer here.

AQUTOP is a Korean brand that was launched back in 2016. Its name is a combination of the word AQUA (water, moisture) and TOP (best, barrier) which means moisture professional brand. All ingredients used in AQUTOP's products are deemed safe.

Deep cleansing foam filled with energy of germinating black beans which makes your skin smooth with plentiful, elastic bubbles. A firm form which forms rich bubbles. A deep cleansing foam which adds moisture but reduces irritation.
Germinating black beans extracts soften your skin texture with the power of germination, full of life.

Portulaca extract prevents dry skin, soothes, and relieves irritation.

AQUTOP's Perfect Clean Cleansing Foam comes in a tube which is a normal packaging for a foam cleanser. The opening is quite big so press the tube gently when squeezing the product out. Rest assured, it was sealed upon purchase.

AQUTOP's Perfect Clean Cleansing Foam produces quite a lot of bubbles. The bubbles feel soft on the skin. It kinda smells like ginseng, somehow. For my dry-combination skin, at first my skin felt dry and tight but it only lasted for a while. It's pretty fine and not too dry for my skin, though.

AQUTOP's Moisturizing Signature Tone-up Cream comes in a jar packaging and as I always said, I love brands who provides spatula for their products which are packed in a jar. It also provides a separator between the product and the cap to ensure the hygiene of the product better.

For a moisturizing cream, AQUTOP's Moisturizing Signature Tone-up Cream is very lightweight. It absorbs quickly unto the skin and leaves no sticky feeling behind. I love how it brightens my skin tone instantly but still in a very much natural way, nothing that looks too fake.

During the two weeks trial, I used AQUTOP's Perfect Clean Cleansing Foam as my daily cleansing foam and AQUTOP's Moisturizing Signature Tone-up Cream in the morning. The result is as what you can see through the photos. My skin got more even and slightly brighter. Nowadays, I love to use AQUTOP's Moisturizing Signature Tone-up Cream on my neck only to even out the skin tone between my neck and face.

AQUTOP's Smoothing Signature Tone-up Body Lotion comes in a slender tube packaging with a relatively small opening. Just like AQUTOP's Perfect Clean Cleansing Foam, it was sealed upon purchase so worry not!

Before I went back to Indonesia, I used AQUTOP's Smoothing Signature Tone-up Body Lotion almost everyday to cope with the dry winter weather in Busan. It kept my skin moisturized pretty well and adsorbed into the skin pretty fast. It also has this natural-looking brightening effect on the skin. However, it kinda sunk into fine lines before being adsorbed completely.
