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.

Koh Gen Do Aqua Foundation Review and Swatches

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,
