Naruko Narcissus Nectar Vital Lotion (水仙花蜜保濕水凝乳) comes in a HUGE pump bottle, which I guess is to make up for the teeny tiny Vital Complex bottles. This lotion also contains the key ingredients as well as some additional ingredients to give this lotion its texture ~ cycolpentasiloxane is a common silicone found in skincare products. It helps skin care products have a silky, lightweight texture while creating a protective barrier on your skin. Algae algin is a gelling-polysaccharide that helps bind water to your skin, while quickly absorbing into your skin. It creates a spreadable texture and is added to help thicken skincare formulas. There is alcohol in this lotion, but I have the feeling it is added to thin out the formula.
This lotion may look unassuming in its plastic pump lavender bottle, but omg. This is so lightweight and watery as I massage it into my skin BUT IT is also very moisturizing. What is this witchcraft? As it dries down on my skin, it feels so refreshing and cooling as well. Again, no sticky or tacky residue, just a nice semi matte finish that is supple and soft ~ and my skin feels SO SMOOTH. I love Taiwanese skincare products as this very hot and humid island needs to control oil production and sweat but also deeply hydrate ~ so their skin care products work very well on my oily skin.
