Quick Skincare Review: Naruko Raw Job's Tears Lotion
Naruko Raw Job's Tears Supercritical CO2 Whitening Lotion S$24.90 from selected Watsons outlets and Naruko's website (for Singapore residents only)
Well, this is a quick review!
I bought the lotion as the raw job's tears night gelly is simply amazing and soothing for my sensitive skin! I bought this lotion in Malaysia for RM 45 which is around ~S$18
Well, I would say this wasn't as soothing as the night gelly. I was hesitant to buy it as I feared it would clog my pores considering it contains crambe seed oil and meadowfoam seed oil (in small quantities).
Thankfully, it didn't clog my pores.
This comes in a semi thick white creamy texture that absorbs quickly( and I do mean quickly!) into my skin. I like that it dries matte and yes, it is suitable for oily skin types! It isn't runny when I compare it to the other great lotion for oily skin types from Naruko - the Oil Out moisturiser/lotion. I think this is great for people with normal or semi-oily skin types. I tend to focus it on my cheeks which are prone to redness and are drier than the other parts of my face. It didn't have a soothing sensation but it didn't aggravate my cheeks either.
On a side note, I wasn't very happy when this was almost scentless. I loved the raw job's tears natural grassy, barley-like smell from the gelly and unfortunately this does not have that smell! It is scentless!
EDIT: I actually am smelling a sort of "nutty" smell from the lotion. I think it's because my nose is crazy but yup, it kind of smell like nuts. Not sure why, though :/
I use this as my night time moisturiser along with the raw job's tears night gelly and I must say, it lightened my acne scars considerably (around 30% lighter just after a few usage!)
It is stored in a dark red plastic bottle and its cardboard packaging can be re-used (simply follow diagrammatic instructions provided).
So far, this lotion has been treating me well!
Much love and happy 2013!
