Using science in skincare isn’t new but Uruoi, which mean moisture in Japanese, uses their patented hyaluronic acid: D.P.H.A. Denka Pure Hyaluronic Acid or D.P.H.A. promises to help skin retain moisture and plump the skin.
The U2 Clean Foam ($28) is my kind of cleanser. It’s gentle, it foams, and it removes unnecessary oils on my skin, providing a good clean base for my skincare routine.
It easily rinses and a pea-sized amount goes a long way. It contains D.P.H.A., hydrolyzed collagen, and sodium lactate to hydrate, plump, and firm the skin. I like how creamy this feels as you massage it on your face and how it dissolves all impurities once you rinse it off. It feels gentle yet deeply cleansing. Once dry, my face doesn’t feel stripped, just nourished, smooth, and deeply cleansed.
Using D.P.H.A., squalene, sunflower seed oil, and jojoba seed oil, the U5 Moisture Milk ($40) aims to hydrate and balance the skin. I was really excited to try this because it sounds like what my oily skin would really enjoy. This moisturizer is of the lightest creamy moisturizers I’ve ever come across with. It almost feels like an emulsion. It also sinks in quickly. Despite its lightness, this hydrates and nourishes my skin so I like using this before applying a sleeping mask and I feel like this will really come in handy once it gets warmer again.
I really like these two hydrating products with the cleanser being a great everyday cleanser for those who get clogged pores easily and the moisturizer a good companion for those with extremely oily skin.
