Beauty ~ Qiora Water Essence Hydrating Gel

Qiora Water Essence Hydrating Gel
Qiora is a skin care line manufactured by Shishedo in Japan. It's only sold in specialty cosmetic boutiques in the US and not at any major department stores. I've been using Shishedo's skin care products for over 20yrs but i've never bought any of their specialty products until now.  When I was a flight attendant and I had trips to Japan, I would always get a facial at this small skin care boutique that was next to our crew hotel.  The ladies spoke very good English and had a steady clientele of  flight attendants from the many different airlines that stayed at that hotel on layovers .  They used some of the most amazing products that you couldn't find in the US and Qiora was one of them.

  The Water Essence is very lightweight formula and goes on very sheer.  I actually use it in the morning as my  moisturizer before I apply my face primer.  It's not oily at all and it leaves my skin very soft and healthy looking.  I plan on purchasing a few more items from the Qiora line to use on a regular basics.

I was on Amazon looking at nail polishes when I decided to search for Shishedo's eye cream, you can always find something a little cheaper on Amazon and to my surprise, the Qiora items popped up. I started looking at the prices and it's not cheap, it cost $70.00... but the eye cream I always use cost $50.  I decided to purchase the Water Essence  and get the eye cream at a later time from my local Macy's.

It's hard to say if I would recommend this to anyone because of the price.  Surely you could find something just as good as this one but if you're looking to treat yourself... then I'd say go for it.
