Price: $34 for 50ml jar.

I have tried several H2O products, but this is the only one that I really liked alot. It is not a cream, but rather a thick gel. You apply it to your facial skin as you would any other cream. I used it as my "base layer" under sunscreen and makeup. The end result was quite good moisturizing. Probably one of the best I have used in terms of moisturizing...but...it also had one big problem: I felt like my skin became extra dry if I skipped a day using this gel. One of my friends speculated that this may be due to alcohol in the formula.

Ingredients....hmm...this one is a little sneaky. They only list some of the ingredients. That's not playing fair in my view. But anyways, here is the incomplete list from their website:

Sea Mineral Complex™, Sea Fennel, Lavender, Vitamin C, Wakame, Vitamin A, Sea Lettuce, Provitamin B

I do not like H2O, since this product seems to be so light that could only be used by young girls around the age of 20.
Supplying water is important, but for most of us, only moisturizing is not enough.

Sorry, I also don't like H2O. I think it is for young girls. I used their most hydrating cream when I was 23 years old. When we were young, any creams would be fine.

I think H20 is too pricy.
The effect of it should target for teenagers but the price doesn't.

I read once about how lips can become addicted to chapstick. I believe it was the menthol. It's actually harmful in the long run because the menthol dries out your lips and you're never actually solving your problem of chapped lips.

Could your product be like this? Feels good on but actually taking away from the health of your skin?

I used H2O Face Oasis and its toner in the past and actually liked them. I agree H2O is suitable for younger skin as it only offers a light moisturizing effect.

Hi,

I have tried quite a few H2O products because I really like the look and feel of their product (like a spell), though I really hate their jar containers.

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Face Oasis Hydrating Treatment

In my opinion, this one is the best from H2O but I didn't like it that much though. It hydrated my skin and didn't break me out but I didn't like the fact that the gel is blue -_-". This one is definitely for those with oily to normal skin. If you have dry skin, this one is not for you.

Water, Glyceryl Polymethacrylate, Propylene Glycol, Glycereth-7, Dimethicone, Glycosaminoglycans, Dimethicone, Phospholipids, Sea Salt, Ulva Lactuca, Crithmum Maritimum, Undaria Pinnatifida, Fucus Vesiculosus, Panthenol, Retinyl Palmitate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopheryl Acetate, Zinc PCA, Benzophenone-4, Dimethicone Copolyol, Triethanolamine, Dioctyl Sodium Sulfosuccinate, Carbomer, Trisodium EDTA, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance, Linalol, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Diazolidinyl Urea, Blue 1

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Green Tea Antioxidant Face Complex

I really wanted to like this one so much. I'm very obsessive with green tea (don't know why). It broke me out badly and I believe that it was the octyl palmitate that did that to my skin. It was way too greasy for my normal skin and it didn't absorb very well. I ended up using it for my body after half a jar.

Water, Octyl Palmitate, Glyceryl Stearate, Dimethicone, PEG-100 Stearate, Borage Oil, Isostearyl Behenate, Cyclomethicone, Myristyl Myristate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butylene Glycol, Green Tea (Camellia Sinensis) Leaf Extract, Cetearyl Alcohol, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Glutamic Acid, Paraguay Tea (Ilex Paraguariensis) Leaf Extract, Gotu Kola (Centella Asiatica) Extract, Arginine, Tocopherol, Sodium PCA, Sorbitol, Lecithin, Lysine, Serine, Threonine, Algae Extract, Polyacrylamide, Proline, Glycine, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Alanine, Laureth-7, Panthenol, Aloe Vera Gel, Allantoin, Betaine, Cetearyl Glucoside, Cetyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Squalane, Diisopropyl Dimer Dilinoleate, Sorbitan Stearate, Dimethicone Copolyol, Phenyl Trimethicone, Sodium Hyaluronate, Fragrance, Silica, Carbopol, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Mica, Methylparaben, Triethanolamine, Propylparaben, Tetrasodium EDTA, Ethylparaben, Butylparaben, Imidazolidinyl Urea

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Urban Defense Lotion SPF 30

I liked almost everything about this product: Green tea, MAP, SPF, and pump bottle except that it made me cry so badly because it sting my eye so badly. It was very greasy and it probably ran through my eyes and left me heartbroken >_<

Active Ingredients: Oxybenzone 6.0%, Octisalate 5.0%, Avobenzone 3.0%

Water, Butylene Glycol, Pentylene Glycol, C12-15 Alkyl Benzoate, Glyceryl Stearate, Triisononanoin, Diethylhexyl 2-6-Naphthalate, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Sodium Dihydroxyacetone Phosphate, Thermus Thermophillus Ferment, Glycerin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf, Ilex Paraguariensis Leaf, Centella Asiatica, Focus Vesiculosus, Yeast, Panax Ginseng Root, Tilia Cordata Flower, Aesculus Hippocastanum (Horse Chestnut) Seed, Lecithin, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Tocopherol, Sea Salt (Maris Salt), Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Mannitol, Glycogen, Calcium Pantothenate, Biotin, Propylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA, Polyglyceryl-3 Caprate, Ethylhexyl Ethylhexanoate, Polyacrylamide, Carbomer, Xanthan Gum, Laureth-7, Triethanolamine, C13-14 Isoparaffin, Methylparaben, Phenoxyethanol

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Face Oasis Cleansing Water

It's call cleansing water but I called it water. Scented water. It didn't remove makeup very well. I hated the smell. It was quite sometime ago (3-4 years at least). All I remember is that there is nothing I like about it. Oh, one thing is that it was very runny (like water) and when you pump it in your hand, it will run all they way to my elbow. And it didn't dry my skin out though.

Water, Propylene Glycol, Glycerin, Decyl Glucoside, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Peg-8 Caprylic/Capric Glycerides, Polysorbate 20, Ethoxydiglycol, Sorbitol, Fragrance, Linalool, Polyquaternium-10, Citric Acid, Panthenol, Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Disodium EDTA, Retinyl Palmitate, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Crithmum Maritimum (Sea Fennel) Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia (Lavender) Extract, Coriandrum Sativum (Coriander) Extract, Algae Extract, Ulva Lactuca (Sea Lettuce) Extract, Sea Salt (Maris Sal), Butylene Glycol, Dipotassium Glycyrrhizate, Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate, Retinyl Palmitate, Benzophenone-4

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Marine Toner

I consider myself a toner person. This one fail. There is nothing I like about this product. Though I didn't hate it that much except the smell.

Water, Propylene Glycol, Wakame (Undaria Pinnatified) Extract, Sea Lettuce Extract, Sea Fennel Extract, Dead Sea Salt, Panthenol, Diazolidinyl Urea, Methylparaben, Sodium Benzoate, Trisodium Edta, Octoxynol-9, Ppg-26-Buteth-26, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Lavender, Coriander, Linalool, Floralozone, Methyldihydrojasmonate, Cyclamen Aldehyde, Blue 1, Violet 2

++++++++++++++++++++++++

I have also tried a blue serum and I think they discontinued this product already. Thank God they did. Anyway, it's been 4 years since I've tried out H2O and I've never laid my eyes on it again.

I think it depends on your skin type. I have pretty bad eczema and I found that they products were not "strong" enough to leave my skin supple. Had I had normal skin, maybe!

Their products make me feel they are more natural though. I have to admit they are quite pricey. Even as someone in the 20s, I only bought their products on sale. Even then, H2O products could not retain the moisture in my skin.

This product wasn't too helpful in terms of my eczema as well. I know people who have normal skin who use it and love it though!

I agree that this brand is more suitable for the younger skin, just like biotherm. As for me, much fewer products will have good effect.

I agree with the others that H2O+ is better for younger people. However, few months ago, my skin was kind of sensitive and dry. I use Oasis24™ Hydrating Booster with cle de peau la creme. It save my face from dryness.
