About the product

What Is It:

Consider this the water cream version of SanDaWha’s must-have Extra Virgin Camellia Face Oil. Antioxidant powerhouse Camellia japonica flower extract is the first ingredient in this Water Cream, but it also contains over 30 botanical extracts and oils, including mango seed butter, olive fruit oil, and grape skin extract, to fight free radicals and protect skin from environmental pollution. Proven skincare ingredients like niacinamide, squalane, and hyaluronic acid prevent melanin buildup and draws moisture to skin for a healthy, radiant glow. And like its name implies, the cream melts like water on your skin, leaving it plumped, hydrated, and without a sticky after feel.

Our insight:

This heavenly (and naturally) scented cream at first has the texture of softened butter but it immediately melts into an almost liquid texture upon contact with the skin. Take a moment to breathe in the scent before applying for a mini aromatherapy session. And remember, with this rich yet lightweight cream, a little goes a long way.

How to use:

Using the included spatula, scoop a dime size amount onto fingertips. Warm product between fingertips and apply on face and neck, gently patting in to increase absorption. Use morning and night or as needed.

This water cream is light and a very good night moisturizer without having your skin stick to your pillow. Great hydration without clogging your pores.


Great night moisturizer. Absorbs well and brings back the hydration I was lacking.


This water cream is a perfect nighttime moisturizer because it very soothing and emollient, but not so rich that you stick to your pillow case. This is a great option for anyone with dry skin as or even just as a before-bed touch up, to help relieve those pesky patchy areas.


For dry and dehydrated skins. It applies smoothly, with no sticky feeling. It absorbs beautifully. Your skin is left super hydrated for hours.


Beautiful texture. Very smooth and soft, and feels very nourishing, but not too heavy or greasy. Makes my skin very soft. Plus it smells really nice, but not overly strong or irritating. Camellia japonica seed oil is an amazing ingredient.


Please note: I have only used a sample size of this product that was given to me so I will comment on the application of this product and initial feeling of it. This cream smells nice (has a very nice rosy/ flowery scent.) This cream is also easily absorbed into my dry skin and very moisturizing upon application. What I liked about this product is that it's not as sticky as some moisturizers can be. The next day I so far had no acne reaction from it which is cool, and my skin felt very moisturized. :)


I tried this moisturizer out for the first time yesterday and i absolutely love this product, adding it to my cart as we speak. This moisturizer left my skin feeling glowing without leaving it greasy. I suggest yall look into the SanDaWha samples


Another amazing cream from SanDaWha! Love the floral smell and rich texture.


i got to try this the other day from a friend of mine, my lord was it so smooth and what i loved most.. it didn't feel tacky nor make my skin red afterwards.
- combination skin- currently testing it with brides I work with and they love the light floral scent


That is awesome you liked it and get to share it with clients! Try out SanDaWha's ReNew Moisturizing Liposome Cream for a slightly richer texture. Really hydrates dry skin!


Feels great on my skin! Goes on smooth with no stickiness. Super hydrating and gentle scent. Highly recommend it!


I wanted to wait a few weeks before I reviews this product to get a comprehensive idea of how well it worked. I must say I am more than pleased. It's rich and luxurious. I have used it with serum and without to feel the difference because some of my clients like to keep their routine minimal. It is so effective. A little bit goes more than a long way. And a handy little scooper comes with it so you don't have to dip into the jar. I also thought the packaging was lovely and simple. It literally looks and... Read more

Hope in a Jar or Just Hype: Why You May Not Need That Heavy Cream

When we reach a certain age — or discover that first wrinkle or even that first pimple — we have a tendency to freak out and fall prey to the first marketing tactic that promises, basically, a brand new face.
