DR CI:LABO Cleansing Gel Super Sensitive 120g 2,992円 (税込)
I’ve almost finished this, even though I don’t think I’ve been using this for much more than a month. It’s my first time using a cleansing gel (I’m usually a cleansing milk type of person), so maybe I’ve been using it a little too liberally. Right now I’m hoping my new cleansing products will arrive in the post before I finish this one up.
DR CI:LABO is a cosmeceutical skin care (and makeup) brand from Japan, and as is obvious from the name, the man behind it is a doctor and dermatologist. The products have a “scientific” tilt to them, and the philosophy behind the brand is simplicity (and science). The Super Sensitive line in particular was supposedly designed to protect the barrier function of delicate skin. (The products in the regular line are also meant to be gently, but I suppose these are doubly so.) I bought the few items in the Super Sensitive line together as a set earlier this year (or maybe it was late last year?). I doubt I would have been interested in this cleansing gel otherwise, but I don’t have any regrets giving it a try.

DR CI:LABO Aqua-Collagen-Gel Super Sensitive 50g 3,990円 (税込)
Aqua Collagen Gel is a cult product from DR CI:LABO, a dermatologist-founded brand from Japan. It’s supposed to be a five-in-one product with the effectiveness of toner, milky lotion (here I think they mean moisturiser), beauty essence, whitening essence and makeup base. I’ve always been a bit skeptical about all-in-one products despite the alluring premise so in practice I use separate products for the toner, essence, makeup base etc. (●´ω｀●)ゞエヘヘ
There are a few versions of Aqua Collagen Gel, but I chose the Super Sensitive version because it’s the lightest of the bunch, and it has an ATP Complex for sensitive skin. ヾ(´▽｀*)ゝあーい♪
