Hello readers!

Today I will be sharing my product review on Dr Wu Hydrating System range. This skincare is catered to my skin type (dry and sensitive) and it has been almost 2 months since I tried these out. I'm already halfway through most of the products and I am done with the masks and moisturizer.

Background on DR.WU: Taiwan’s NO.1 Clinical Skincare
DR.WU, the leading medical skincare brand in Taiwan was founded in 2003 by the renowned dermatologist Dr. Ying-Chin Wu, along with his eldest son Eric Wu. With 40 years of vast clinical experiences and extensive research on skin structure, and a formula based on doctor’s prescription, DR.WU has created a technologically-advanced skincare line of high potency products for sensitive skin. With these products, customers are able to enjoy skincare just like having a doctor perform
medical treatments at home, maintaining a perfect complexion through the most simple yet effect
ways. Our philosophy behind our work is to bring about non-surgical solutions in enhancing one’s
beauty and wellness.

Dr Wu Hydrating Gel Cleanser with Hyaluronic Acid
Suitable For: Dehydrated and Sensitive Skin
Texture: Soft gel
Colour: Clear
Scent: Mild to none
After using this product: I'm happy that this doesn't lather up much as I dislike foam cleansers generally. I usually use Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser as my cleanser and this isn't too bad for a change. Compared to Cetaphil, I feel this actually hydrates my skin more and it has more beneficial ingredients for my skin. As a happy user of Cetaphil, I can really feel the pinch when buying this cleanser because I could get up to 1,500ml of product for the same price of this Dr Wu cleanser. I really like this cleanser, but the price is the drawback honestly. Perhaps I would repurchase if it's around the RM60-80 range.
Price: RM129 for 150ml

Dr Wu Intensive Hydrating Toner with Hyaluronic Acid
Suitable For: Dehydrated and Normal Skin
Texture: Sticky gel liquid
Colour: Clear
Scent: Very mild to none
After using this product: It is usually difficult for me to find a toner that I dislike and this is one of them! I dislike the way the product dispenses from the bottle because the tackiness of the liquid is a challenge to come out! I would prefer it if it came in a pump bottle instead for easier dispensary. Also, I don't really like the texture because it does not absorb well into my cotton pads and slides off easily onto the floor when not careful! Thus I recommend using this product with your hands instead or just be VERY careful with cotton pads. Though it is very tacky, it surprised me by absorbing quickly (than expected) onto my face. My face is well hydrated but because of its texture and dispensary method, I would not repurchase this toner.
Price: RM120 for 150ml

Dr Wu Hydrating Glacier Water with Hyaluronic Acid
Suitable For: Normal and Sensitive Skin
Texture: Fine mist
Colour: None
Scent: None
After using this product: I LOVE THIS FACE MIST! I like that I can hold down the nozzle for as long as I want while the product pumps itself out into a fine mist! Compared to other face mists in the market, this Dr Wu face mist actually gives a cool minty sensation INSTANTLY! It feels as though as my temperature can be instantly reduced when the mist comes in contact. YES I WOULD REPURCHASE THIS! This is the best product, in my opinion, from the range.
Price: RM99 for 250ml

Dr Wu Intensive Hydrating Gel with Hyaluronic Acid
Suitable For: Dehydrated and Sensitive Skin
Texture: Soft gel
Colour: White
Scent: Light clinical scent
After using this product: This gel moisturizer sinks into my skin very quickly. I'm glad that this doesn't cause any reactions, as it is made for my skin type after all! I like it that it comes with a spatula for hygiene purposes too. However I do feel it is pricey the amount of product that I'm getting and I feel that there are other similar moisturizers in the market that can give the same effect for a fraction of the price.
Price: RM179 for 30ml

Dr Wu Ultimate Hydrating Mask with Hyaluronic Acid
Suitable For: Dehydrated and Sensitive Skin
Texture: Thick runny liquid
Colour: Clear
Scent: Almost none
Price: RM95 for 3's
After using this product: My skin feels refreshed! Though it's a little on the pricey side, it's a great quick skin booster, especially when you are planning to attend a big event the next day! The effect lasts up to a few days. I'm impressed!
