Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation | Review

Hello internet friends!

I’m back today to share my thoughts on a foundation that I’ve been using for years now and that I haven’t reviewed yet; the Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation.

This product has been fairly popular over the years and I’ve heard a lot of different people say a lot of different things about it. If you want to know my take on it, keep reading!

I bought this foundation a while ago when I went to Japan, so the retail price was a little different. I’ve been experimenting with this product ever since, and I’ve had great results.


The packaging is very chic and clean, and I love the fact that it comes with a pump. It contains 1.01 fl. oz of product and it retails for $66. I believe you can buy this at Sephora and a few department stores in the U.S.

The actual product inside is incredible. This is a water based formula so it melts into the skin beautifully and it leaves your face looking glowy and healthy; almost like you’re wearing no foundation. The coverage on this is on the lighter side, but it is very easy to build it up. I have combination skin and this product works perfectly despite being a more dewy formula. I do find that I have to set it, but once I do, the foundation stays on my face for hours. I haven’t found any other foundation that makes my skin look as amazing as this one does.


The only things I don’t like about this product are the shade range and the price. This foundation comes in a total of 7 shades. Most of them are super pale and there are two that are better suited for medium skin tones. So there’s definitely not something for everyone.

This foundation is expensive with a capital E. The price point is a bit ridiculous, but I think it’s worth it. This is the only super high-end foundation I own and it works wonders for me. I’m totally gonna repurchase it when I run out.


Overall I think this foundation is totally worth it. It’s a great quality product that works unlike anything else I’ve tried before. So if you’re looking to get this foundation, I say do it. You definitely won’t regret it.

Have you guys tried the Aqua Foundation yet? Let me know your thoughts 🙂

Thank you so much for reading!

Lots of love,

Isa ❤
