NARS Aqua Gel Hydrator ($76.00 for 3.6 fl. oz.) is beyond phenomenal. It is the perfect treatment for everyone, but especially for those with normal-to-oily skin, because it is water-based (hence the “gel” in the name). It’s actually made of 87% water! It is designed to be considered a mask, rather than an everyday moisturizer, though I am sorely tempted to make it a daily staple. It is just that good.

There’s still more to rave about!

Talk about a lightweight product! It feels like you’re massaging slightly viscous water into your skin, and because of its water content, it’s incredibly easy to spread evenly on your face and neck. You don’t even need to use more than a pea-sized amount for your entire face. It is ideally used during the evening and left overnight for intense hydration “as necessary.” (What if “necessary” is “everyday”? Hmm….) I often use this in place of NARSskin Hydrating Moisture Cream, especially if I feel like my skin could use a pick-me-up. I love masks and treatments and all those sorts of goodies, but this is such a treat because you massage in and go to sleep–it does all the work while you catch up on your Zs.

I’m more than happy to pay the price for this skincare staple, especially because it will take me months to get through an entire jar. Considering how good my skin has been acting and looking, it’s well worth it!

  1. I’m glad you were finally able to try this! I LOVE NARSskin products. The company is actally owned by Shisheido according to my Nars MA, and Shisheido knows skin. The aqua gel hydrator is my favorite of the line, it works wonderfully all year round for me.

    I love the Aqua Gel Hydrator, way more than they hydrating moisture cream. Then again, I really love the new EFA night infusion serum and cream, though their prices, especially the cream is steeeeeeep!

  3. I *heart* NARS Aqua Gel. It’s doesn’t only just give my skin moisture, something in it just makes my skin glow! I used to have really clogged up skin. After using Aqua Gel for 2 weeks, all the white heads were gone after 2 weeks. (It seems that my skin got more moisture and the grease in pores could come out out eaiser? Does that make sense?)

    I don’t use Aqua Gel anymore since my skin has all cleared up, but I do recommend it as a treatment to whatever skin problem you have!

    I have never used Nars skin products but you are saying really good things about them so I am interested on. Are Nars Skin products for young people? I am only 19. Thank you

    Is there a site that sells these, perhaps a little cheaper, that ships internationally? I really want to get this and that hydrating cream. I’ve been looking for some new skin products and these sound pretty good. I can’t find them on ebay anywhere and the only place I know of that sells Nars in Australia is mecca but they don’t have either of these products.

    I’ve been using the MAC Lightful Deep Ultramoisture Creme (I actually got a new jar yesterday), but if this is so good, then I may give it a try. In terms of size, this is actually cheaper than the MAC one, and I’ll have to buy it less often, which is good, because my MAC/Sephora/Nordstrom/all-things-makeup-mall is about forty-five minutes away!
