WHAT IS IT: Curel Intensive Moisture Care Moisture Lotion II

Curel Intensive Moisture Care Moisture Lotion II
Curel Intensive Moisture Care Moisture Lotion II: Contains Eucalyptus extract that penetrates deeply into the stratum corneum so skin becomes smooth, fully moisturized and resistant to external irritation. Helps to improve your skin's natural barrier function, soothe and protect skin from dryness. Leaves a thoroughly moist feel. Suitable for dry skin.

Honestly, I kept thinking it's supposed to be a toner of some sort, but the description made it sound like it isn't. I'm just going to presume it is a toner and used it as such.

VERDICT: The scent! Despite the product claiming that it contains eucalyptus, I can't really smell anything eucalyptus or minty out of it. I think this is a product line that focus more on proving the product works than to focus on the scent, which I think it s bonus. If not, some of us are just going to buy some Curel products, sniff at it day in and day out and refused to touch it until our nose OD (Over Dose) on the scent and never actually try it out. I once encountered a facial scrub that is supposedly pineapple-based, but it looks more like car perfume. Everyone who bought the related magazine that gives out that pineapple scrub for free commented that they used it for their cars than to use it on their face LOL

The moisture lotion's texture and consistency is typical of regular toner or toner-esque products, so I'm just going to skip it. But I did noticed that it doesn't irritate my skin, and surprisingly, it is light but at the same time, I did feel the toner on my skin as opposed to previous brands I won't named, where the toner just simply feels as if I am rubbing tap water on my skin only. Let's just say this Moisture Lotion II doesn't make you feel like you are rubbing tape water on your skin.

After application, I proceed to apply/layer on my other skincare products with in between 15 to 20 minutes time for my skin to absorb the products. And so far, it never "clashed" with the other brand name products I am using. However, I also noticed that this Moisture Lotion II itself isn't making me see any difference to my skin at all. I believe people with really dry or really sensitive skin would benefit more from this product than someone who have oily/combination skin.


WHAT I THINK: It's really lightweight on the skin, which I think is more suited for dry/sensitive skin than oily/combination skin.

WHERE TO REDEEM SAMPLE: Curel website and Facebook page regularly hosts sampling acitivity whenever they released new products or product line, so you might want to keep track of their Facebook page instead. Not sure if you can still get samples for this particular line though.

Why not like my Facebook page at to be informed of latest samples I found, which is duly updated? Also includes updates to health, beauty & lifestyle tips at least once a day. It will definitely save you the trouble of having to hunt them down :)
