Do you remember putting calamine lotion on bug bites as a child? Aqua Marina was made with the same principle in mind; using the soothing pink extract to reduce redness and inflammation in sensitive skin. Those who have a tendency to react to citrus or strong herbal oils will find salvation in Aqua Marina’s gentle aloe vera and moisturizing nori seaweed. Especially cooling on sun burnt faces, Aqua Marina is perfect for normal to dry skin types. Your cleanser will remain fresh for up to three months. Always check the expiration date on your product.

Aqua Marina Facial Cleanser is not my favourite LUSH product because it has a strong medicinal scent and it does not provide any exfoliationt. However, I do give it credit for being an ultra creamy cleanser. Aqua Marina does leaves skin feeling clean and smooth. The product sorta helped my acne troubled skin by balancing out the natural oils and calms redness.
This seaweed facial cleanser sells for $10.50 per 3.5oz. It is wrapped in Nori seaweed, which is high in vitamins and minerals to soften dry skin. Aqua Marina is calming to the skin and effective to use. The pink mousse feels so soft and creamy that your face won't even notice it's being cleaned! Your face is left fresh and brighter. It has calamine and aloe vera to soothe irritated skin, especially when you've been sitting in the sun or caught in the wind! It also contains Kaolin, which cleanses deeply and tightens your skin a little. It's not greasy, it leaves you with a clean feel, and it improves the texture of your skin. The bad things about this product is that it's smell isn't very flattering... It smells like SEAWEED! It also doesn't remove makeup so be sure to take it off before you use this! This is best for sensitive and oily skin. It's gentle enough to use daily. This product is a great buy for LUSH! Hope this helped!
No, that's not a maki roll, it is however, wrapped in seaweed. I was sick of how gel cleansers robbed my skin of essential oils, made my skin itch, left dry patches, and made my skin feel like I had my hair pulled back in a high pony tail. Although I love Lush's Angels on Bare Skin, it's more of a scrub/exfoliant, and I felt that might be too harsh to be used everyday on my dry sensitive winter skin. So I went back to Lush and they recommended I try Aqua Marina.
Texture wise, it is smooth with no exfoliating particles and feels just like moist clay.
As to it's cleansing power, it's not really up to the job of makeup removal, it won't even remove liquid foundation T.T. As a result I only use this in the mornings where all it has to do is clean off sleep gunk.
I found that it was easier to break off a small piece and rub it onto my wet face instead of mixing it with water before application. That way it was less messy than having to transfer the mixture onto my face and losing much of it along the way xD
I've used about 300g of this cleanser so far and it hasn't broken me out. It leaves my skin feeling clean, but not tight. I'd say it's comparable to using a cream cleanser in terms of mildness. I wash my bf's face with this (he scrunges his face and screams that his dirt and germs are dying T.T) and afterwards I noticed that his face was significantly brighter and glowy!! @.@
Whilst I was going through the "Vitasoy breakout of 2010", this cleanser really helped to sooth my poor inflamed skin and helped it heal.
The only cons I can think of is that it does smell a bit funky at first, however you do get used to it. Also I think this expires in 3 months so if you're not gonna be using this every day, get only a small amount. Oh and the seaweed will inevitably get soggy n look gross T.T
I love this product! When I first tried it, I really did not like the application and washing it with water. But, I got used to it. I put this product in a little jar, add water, and a make a liquid/paste. Whenever I need it, I just spread it on my face. Usually, I also use it as a mask and wait for it dry, then wash it off my face. It leaves my face soft and moisturized, which when I first used it felt my face was unclean. There are at times where the product will leave a white residue, but I usually ignore it because the product is so good!
I received a free sample of Aqua Marina and will be buying more when I run out. Mainly consists of seaweed, chamomile and aloe vera to soothe skin.
To use: rip off a piece and wet. Rub on face, re-wetting when need be, until entire piece has been used up. Wash off and continue with your regular regime.
Expires: 3 months
