OLAY AquAction Intensive Nourishing Emulsion

20 Nov


Our skin is constantly losing moisture like a leaky bucket. Even without doing much at all, we could be losing about two glasses of water a day by simply breathing and through evaporation from our skin! Gosh! So just imagine how much more moisture we are going to lose through our daily activities!!

And that’s not all, there is second cause of moisture loss – Skin Fatigue. Skin fatigue is the loss of skin energy which leads to many unwanted changes in our skin, including a loss of skin’s ability to hold on to moisture and causing skin’s leaky bucket to become even more leaky as a result.

But fret not, the great scientists of Olay has also made discovery of a new gold standard in hydration skin active known as WSK that could outperform Hyaluronic Acid and provides 24 hours of non-stop hydration.

Armed with the findings and inspired by legendary beauty, Yang Guifei, Olay has engineered a new product range: AquAction to address both causes of skin moisture loss with the cutting edge HydraLock technology powered by two properties (one of which is the based on the very ingredient used by this ancient beauty’s regimen) – WSK and Niacinamide.

Under the wing of the new Olay AquAction range, there are 5 must have products:
• Olay AquAction Long Lasting Hydration Gel
• Olay AquAction Deep Hydrating Dew
• Olay AquAction Intensive Nourishing Emulsion
• Olay AquAction Softening Sleeping Mask
• Olay AquAction Nourishing Hydration Mask

While each is formulated with specific functionalities, they all have a common aim to deliver the new standard of hydration that is fondly known as ‘pump pump bouncy skin and I shall dive straight into OLAY AquAction Intensive Nourishing Emulsion for this post.


OLAY AquAction Intensive Nourishing Emulsion

Formulated to target skin that is easily dehydrated, this product is designed to deliver continuous rehydration for up to 24 hours. Its water-bonding formula continuously provides moisture, and keeps skin hydrated all day long, making skin hydrated and bouncy. It contains peach leaf and morus alba root extracts.


 To be honest, I was initially a little skeptical on using an emulsion. Given its lighter texture than a cream base moisturizer, I was worried that it could not provide sufficient moisture to quench the thirst of my dehydrated skin.

But OLAY AquAction Intensive Nourishing Emulsion has proven me wrong.

This jelly-like texture emulsion feels light on the skin yet it is extremely hydrating. It has a cooling sensation when applied and I like how it soothes my parched skin instantly without leaving any greasy or sticky after feel. It helps to pump up and lock in moisture so my skin stays hydrated and as a result, my face feels smoother and looks fresher too.

Besides that, the fresh scent of the emulsion is very pleasurable and invigorating and I simply how it perks up my senses on lazy mornings!
