My New Skincare Favorite: Guerlain Super Aqua-Crème!

June 27, 2014

Last week I introduced you to Guerlain’s new Super Aqua-Serum BB Hydra+, and today I am going to showcase the other new member of the family… Guerlain Super Aqua-Crème!

Guerlain Super Aqua-Creme


Enriched with Guerlain’s proprietary Aquacomplex, the Super Aqua-Crème purifies cellular water to improve circulation, and provide long-lasting (up to 24 hours) hydration.  Over prolonged use, toxins are purged from the skin, allowing normal skin functions to return to their optimal performance, thereby restoring a healthy, youthful appearance.

Guerlain Super Aqua-Creme Day Gel

Guerlain Super Aqua-Crème is available in 3 different textures for varying skin types and personal preferences.  The Day Gel is a lightweight gel-cream texture that is my archilles heel.  It goes on soufflé-light, feels cool when applied, and gets absorbed in an instant without leaving any trace.  It contains a multi-protective soothing white pine extract to help skin face daily aggressors such as heat and pollution.  As with all other Guerlain skincare, it is fragranced so you may want to test it out before committing.  Personally, I’m utterly in love with the fresh, gentle scent… with notes like aqua flower, rose, ylang ylang and jasmine, it is akin to enveloping yourself in the fresh spring dew.

Living out here in the hot tropics, I find the Day Gel perfect for day use, and equally moisturizing for night.  However, for those with drier skin or living in a cooler climate, it is also available in a slightly richer Day Cream.  This is equally lightweight with a whipped cream texture, and was easily absorbed.  It is enriched with shea extract for additional nourishing and multi-protective properties.

Lastly, there is a Night Balm to help skin recharge while at rest.  I was completely taken by surprised as it melted easily at my touch, and applied like a dream without any stickiness!  It is enriched with antioxidant peach leaf extract to repair the damage caused by free radicals during the day, and supports the regeneration of cells overnight.

I have been using Guerlain Super Aqua-Crème Day Gel religiously for the past 2 weeks, both day and night, and am so in love with it, I think I may be replacing my La Mer Gel-Crème with this from now on!  I find my skin feels much more comfortable, and I wake up with brighter and plumper looking skin.  If you are casting around for a new moisturizer, do give this a try!

    Hi Linda, I just finishes trying day and night cream on little samples. I haven’t tried the gel yet. But so far I am very much in love with this range. I am going to replace SKII Stempower with this range as it breaks me out!

      Hi Lilian, i’m so glad you’re liking the Super Aqua series! I wasn’t very happy when SK-II replaced the old Advanced Treatment Cream with the Stempower, as it broke me out too. Prior to that, I was an ardent SK-II fan, and was using their entire range diligently.

    I prefer more gel like moisturizers for day time use too. But I liked them really creamy for night time 😛
    This line sounds very interesting. I’ve never tried Guerlain’s skin care range before, but I’ll have to check if we get this line here, and ask for samples. Specially of that Night Balm!

    PS: I got the Aquarella Meteorites! I found them here just last week, and I HAD to get them! lol
    So pretty! Even if they are too sparkly for everyday use, I’ll just save them for special occasions 😉

      Hey Sil, yeah i like gel / gel-creams too!! I prefer creams for night too… but it’s been so super hot in Singapore lately, gel-creams work fine for me too! Please let me know if you manage to try this range out… i love Guerlain skincare! And hooray to the Aquarellas! Actually, i’ve been wearing it for day… i use a dual-fiber stippling brush and it’s not glittery! Try it!
