    Quick Summary

    Overall, I found Cure Natural Aqua Gel to be a very mediocre exfoliator that’s not worth all the hype.

    This is the number 1 selling exfoliator in Japan, so I was super excited to try it.

    The big hype around this product is that you can literally see your “dead skin” coming off during use.  These balls of “dead skin” actually ended up being more of the product than the dead skin itself.

    I also found that they got stuck in the tiny hairs on my face, which made them not only difficult but a little painful to rinse off.

    Although this product does a great job moisturizing your face, as far as exfoliating I found it to be very average.  It removed some areas of dead skin and left my skin extremely soft, however, there were still quite a few dry patches I could see immediately after use.

    My favorite thing about this product is it impressive line of ingredients.  This product is not only 90% water, but it’s also fragrance, color and preservative free!

    Detailed Review:


    Cure Natural Aqua Gel is a clear very thin, watery gel.  It has a little bit of a slimy feel to it but overall this product is very watery.


    Cure Natural Aqua Gel is fragrance free, which is definitely a plus for those with sensitive skin.

    The gel has a slight chemical smell to it.  It almost smells like rubber cement.  It’s very faint, but it’s not my favorite smell.

    Application Process

    The application of Cure Natural Aqua Gel is very simple, but it’s different than your typical exfoliator.

    Before using the product make sure to wash and completely dry your face.

    Apply a small amount of the gel to your dry face and massage with circular motions for 30 to 60 seconds.  Because this gel is very watery, I found it easiest to apply to one area at a time.

    As you massage the gel into your skin you will see the small balls forming on your face.  This is said to be the dead skin coming off your face.

    After you have applied the product to your entire face, rinse with lukewarm water and pat dry.

    Although the application is simple, I found it difficult to completely rinse the product from my face.

    I found that the balls of product/dead skin would get stuck in the peach fuzz on my face.  After a couple rinses, there were still a few I had to pull off, ouch!

    Any Drying and/or Redness?

    This product is extremely gentle (beside the removal of a few hairs). I did not experience drying or redness when using this product.


    Being the bestselling exfoliator in Japan, I had very high expectations from this product.

    Unfortunately, I was let down when I saw very average results from using Cure Natural Aqua Gel.

    They claim the balls that form during application are dead skin being removed.  The first time I used it I was amazed at how fast the product worked and how much dead skin the product was removing!

    However. I quickly realized most of the “dead skin” balls forming on my face were actually just the product itself.

    On their website Cure claims: “‘Natural Aqua Gel Cure’ only works on the skin and not on other surfaces such as glass or ceramic dishes (Why do they need to put this disclaimer? Who uses an exfoliator on their dishes?). And, “dead skin cells will no longer come off if you use it twice on the same skin area.”

    Curious, I used the product on my counter top and saw the same reaction: the product still balled up.  I also tried using it on a patch of skin twice and both times experienced the same results.  So both of those claims proved to be false.

    Overall, I found the results to be very average.  While Cure did remove some areas of dead skin, I was still able to see dry areas after use.

    Although the product did just an average job exfoliating, I really like how hydrating this product is.

    After use, my skin felt extremely soft. I was shocked that this lasted well into the next day without feeling greasy!


    Cure Natural Aqua Gel has a pretty impressive list of ingredients.  Not only is the product fragrance, color and preservative free but it’s also made of 90% water.

    The other 10% of this exfoliator is made of extremely moisturizing ingredients such as glycerin and Icocodimonium Chloride (commonly used in conditioners).


    Cure Natural Aqua Gel costs $39.00 for 8.8 oz.  This ends up being $4.43 an oz.  According to the product’s website, a bottle of Cure will last approximately 3-4 months.  Although the price isn’t too bad for a good exfoliator, it is not worth the average results.
