Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash

I had sensitive skin since young and is particularly careful about the skincare products I used. Even simple daily necessities like body wash must be gentle enough to ensure that my skin would not feel raw after a bath!I was looking for the right body wash, then I got to know about the new Instant Foaming Body Wash from Curél.

I was willing to try the new Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash because Curél is one of my trusted solution for sensitive skin!

A highly-respected brand in Japan, Curél works closely with top dermatologists in Japan, Hong Kong, the US and Europe to create a skincare range targeting sensitive Asian skin and is developed from over 30 years (!!!) of extensive dermatological research combining the latest dermatological science and technology.

Shower time is especially fun when I can have instant foam from a bottle! It dispenses a foamy lather to cleanse gently without rubbing. I used to have a slight dread before showering because I did not like the feel of water and harsh soap on my sensitive skin. However, I now enjoy shower time because the foam is so soft and gentle!

I love how dense, but gentle and soft the foam feels! The foam dispensed was lightweight and smooth to touch, but at the same time very dense, not watery at all!

As you all know, I have eczema issues and it flares up on humid days or when I use unsuitable products. During overseas trips, due to laziness and saving of luggage space, I use shower gels provided in hotel rooms and some of them made my skin red and itchy - definitely not a good feeling especially after a bath!

It is extremely important for us girls with sensitive skin to use products that are gentle enough. No worries when using Curél products as they are:

Non-comedogenic (do not clog pores)
Set at a pH5.5 that is closest to skin's PH


Another highlight about Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash is that it contains cleansing ingredients that minimize stress on skin while cleaning it thoroughly and strengthens skin's resilience via ceramide!

For those who are wondering, ceramide deficiency causes skin sensitivity! People with sensitive skin tend to feel irritation and sting during shower time when using regular body wash on raw patches on skin. As our skin is mildly acidic, using alkaline-based skincare products can cause stress to our skin as it washes away ceramide along with dirt during cleansing.

I always had sensitive skin since I was a kid. My skin is easily irritable by dust, rough clothing, or unsuitable skin products. I was suffering from an intense itch awhile back, and my skin was red, scaly, and awful. I felt very uncomfortable whenever it flares up and knowing scratching would worsen the condition, I would immediately go for a bath as I thought cool water would solve it. However, I ended up scratching even more after showering, probably because the soap I used was not gentle enough on the affected area! I switched to Curél and the situation became significantly better. I don't feel much irritation after bathing now! In fact, I feel more refreshed and my skin feels smooth and hydrated.

Curél's unique ceramide retention technology retains skin’s ceramide to keep skin moisturized and healthier too!

Protect your sensitive skin from harsh cleansing with the new Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash!

Compared to other body washes meant for sensitive skin, Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash produces superior cleansibility without irritating the skin. The dense yet fine foam glides smoothly and gently cushions my skin while cleansing effectively!

My skin feels clean, dewy and comfortable after wash!

Awhile back, I had a bad case of rashes due to my sensitive skin and the redness looked so unpleasant! Thankfully, I started using Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash and my skin doesn't feel raw after a bath anymore and the redness is gone! My skin now feels smooth and comfortable at all times!

Made in Japan, Curél Instant Foaming Body Wash (480ml) will be available in Singapore from mid Feb’2015 onwards at selected Guardian and Watsons’s stores at only S$24.80!

  1. Hey Esther! My name's Esther too and we both have super sensitive skin! Thanks for this post although i'm not sure if Curel is already available here in Manila. Thanks for the info though and i'll be sure to pick a bottle (or 2) up when i go there.

    I've been reading your blog for years and i've read every single post. I frequently go to Singapore and your blog serves as my unofficial guide to food and shopping. Also, having the same name puts you high up there on my favorite bloggers list. More power to your blog!

    P.S. I miss your shopping/beauty/organization finds. I hope you'll feature more soon!
