ZA Total Hydration Dewy Moisturizer

"Malas mo, ikaw ang natipuhan ko"- just singing this part of Oo by Up Dharma Down over and over again and wonder if I'll ever say this to a person.  Nah, I can't but maybe to a product yes!  (if ever you wanted to know the lyrics in filipino and english of Oo you can check it here, although the translation is not perfect).

Za Total Hydration Dewy Moisturizer with Vitamin B
P395/ around $9.50

And this my friends is one of the products that I randomly picked from the crazy sale in SM Makati and should have sing the "Malas mo, ikaw ang natipuhan ko" after I pulled it from the neatly arranged shelves of pink bottles in Za [pronounce as zi:ei].  I am looking for an emulsion during the sale and while everything around me is in chaos, I lazily walk and wanted to actually whistle to savor the moment of me in a relax mode while others are panicking and Za just got my attention for being so neat.

Za Total Hydration Dewy Moisturizer with Vitamin B is not an emulsion; obviously, but a moisturizer: a liquidy/gel type one.  The saleslady put a little on my hand and my skin quickly absorbs it so I immediately bought it.

light and refreshing texture and for skin that tends to feel sticky

And yes, it's light and refreshing and it doesn't leave the skin sticky because of it's water-like consistency and I also believe that it's non-clogging, perfect for those who have normal to oily skin type that wanted to moisturize their skin without the heavy feeling because; really, it's just like a water or toner.

For those with dry skin though like me, this one is not moisturizing enough...I still put a cream on top of it to relieve the dryness of my skin so I really use it as an emulsion for my face but I love that it's perfect as a body moisturizer during day time plus it's also perfect to bring this on travel because it's almost like an all in one product:  a toner plus a moisturizer for my face (I just have to layer it every now and then for my face not to dry) and a light non-sticky moisturizer for my body.

see the look?

See?  It's just so liquidy that spreading this product is not a problem and again and again, it's not sticky even if I put layers and layers of it on my skin.  The scent has a combination of something citrusy and almost toner like smell that is refreshing for me.

Once applied, my skin actually look matted but I noticed that after a couple of seconds (sometimes a minute), my skin will actually look a little dewy especially when I'm under a light.

For those who have oily/combi/normal skin type that wanted a light moisturizer, I think Za Total Hydration Dewy Moisturizer is worth a try.  I think I'll be using this more often over the summer.

Thanks for reading. Till then. Bye!


  1. I never really figured out the difference between an emulsifier and a moisturizer. :|

    Also, hahaha, Oo is one of my fave UDD songs! *brofist*

    1. I guess it lies with the texture? ahahaha, there's just a lot of new products in the market that blows my mind.

  2. I'm scared of too-creamy moisturizers for fear that it would clog my oily skin, but this one looks harmless because of it's gel/liquidy consitency! Might give it a try. Thanks for the review! :)

    1. and it's not that expensive considering 150 ml siya. thanks and welcome Helen =)

  3. Mukhang pang oily skin nga sya. Masyadong thin yung consistency when I tried it at the store. Siguro pag day time ok sya for dry-skinned people. Pero pag-gabi, since di naman lalabas, mas ok pa rin ang cream-type.

    1. Ay correct, siguro pag sobrang init ng summer next year eto gagamitin ko
