Let’s talk about a cream that has created a buzz at our shop and is one of our bestsellers. I am talking about the Cremorlab Fresh Water Gel (€49.99), an airy moisturizer formulated especially for the needs of oily and combination skin. One of those magic formulas you can only find in Korean skin care!
Cremorlab is a boutique Korean manufacturer. In other words, you won’t find this niche brand available at mass scale, making it all the more unique. Among the base ingredients crafted by their lab is the cult-favorite T.E.N. miracle water, present in their entire range. Enriched with calcium, magnesium, potassium, and vanadium, this Korean thermal water contains particles smaller than skin’s pores, allowing their immediate absorption. Cremorlab puts the power of T.E.N. water to your favor by blending their exclusive thermal water with botanical ingredients that promote natural healing and nourishment. Sounds lovely to me!
The Cremorlab Fresh Water Gel is described as a lightweight moisturizer rich in minerals, botanical ingredients (including Bulgarian rose), and seaweed extracts (packed with Vitamin A, B1, B2, and C) that create a velvety-smooth feeling when applied to the skin. The cream promises to effectively hydrate, soothe, and reinvigorate the skin when applied twice a day (morning and evening). Among the botanical extracts, you will find Camelia Sinensis Leaf Extract and Centella Asiatica, which are some of my favorite soothing ingredients, and licorice, a natural ingredient to brighten skin complexion and fade hyperpigmentation. Witch Hazel, Lavender, Aloe Vera, Orchid, and Yeast extract make this a beautiful, luxurious cream for those who value every single component in the formula. Finally, Cremorlab products are free of parabens, fragrance, artificial colors, and mineral oils. Don’t you wish more brands would follow the example?
My experience with the Cremorlab Fresh Water Gel is one of bewildering. With an oily skin that turns exceptionally dehydrated during the winter, I was adamant to believe creamy textures were unsuitable for my skin type. I say this because the fresh water gel is not the usual gel-like moisturizer I had tried before. But I was wrong. This Korean moisturizer is creamy and velvety, although preserving the lightness and delicacy of a gel. When applied to the face, the cream transforms into a buttery, almost water-like texture, which is quickly absorbed without any residue. But instead of that dry feeling many gels leave behind, the Cremolarb Fresh Water Gel offered me a luxury, velvety touch. My skin is immediately suppler and smoother after application. It has caused no breakouts on my reactive, acne-prone skin, which is happy, happy time after time when I reach out to this wonder moisturizer.
Many of us underestimate the importance of hydration. Hydration is the best anti-aging treatment you could ever hope for. Youthful skin is hydrated skin, and all other ingredients you are betting on to make your skin look healthier will only do so much if you find yourself with flakey, dehydrated skin. And that is equally valid for oily and combination skin types!
The Cremorlab Fresh Water Gel comes in a generous 100ml package, what should last you many months.

This cream is equally suitable for those with normal skin during the summer months. In the winter, normal skin types might want to look at deeply hydrating Cremorlab Snow Falls Melting Cream, which is my Cremorlab recommendation for dry skin types.
