Astalift Jelly Review: Fujifilm’s Revolutionary Anti-Ageing Skin Booster

By: Clara Siew / November 16, 2020

Ever thought about incorporating a booster into your skincare routine? Well, now is as good a time as any to start! Essentially, skin boosters are concentrates that contain a potent blend of skincare ingredients to target specific skin concerns like signs of ageing, hyperpigmentation and a dull complexion. Since a booster is more powerful than a regular serum and moisturiser, we typically use it to prep or “boost” our skin before applying the rest of our skincare products. Speaking of skin boosters, Fujifilm has come up with an all new version of their very own revolutionary anti-ageing booster – the Astalift Renewal Jelly Aquarysta.

What is Astalift Jelly Aquarysta?

Check out that amazing jelly texture!

Made in Japan by internationally-renowned imaging, printing and biotech company Fujifilm, Astalift Renewal Jelly Aquarysta is a rejuvenating anti-ageing concentrate that looks like a jelly and spreads like a dream. Today, this newest formulation contains a powerful combination of unique ingredients to deeply treat and nourish the skin at a cellular level. Overall, its key ingredients include human-type nano-ceramides, nano-Astaxanthin, nano-Lycopene, Asenyaku extract and 3 types of collagen to boost cell renewal and collagen production. Let’s take a closer look at what each of these ingredients does for your skin:

Human-Type Nano-Ceramides

First of all, let’s talk about ceramides. Basically, ceramides are a chain of fatty acids known as lipids. They are naturally found within our skin cells and 50% of our epidermis (the external layer of our skin) consists of ceramides. Together with other important molecules in the skin, ceramides help to fortify your skin’s moisture barrier, regulate cellular function and shield your skin from environmental damage and dryness. Okay, so if our skin already contains ceramides, you’re probably wondering why we’d need more ceramides in our skincare right? Well, as it turns out, our own ceramides lose their structural integrity over time as we age, thus weakening the moisture barrier. In addition to a natural slowdown in collagen production, our skin becomes more prone to dryness, fine lines and wrinkles as we age.

Ceramides naturally diminish as we age, thus causing skin dryness and impairing the skin’s moisture barrier over time.

Hence, applying topical nano-ceramides regularly onto our skin helps to prevent and slow down premature signs of ageing, while keeping our skin soft and plump with hydration. Here, Astalift Jelly Aquarysta uses a highly-concentrated blend of 2 human-type nano-ceramides. The first, are nano-ceramides that closely mimic the ones in our skin to replenish lost moisture in our epidermis. The second, are nano-acyl ceramides that effectively lock in moisture and help to maintain optimal levels of hydration in the skin.


Developed in 2007 by Fujifilm, nano-astaxanthin is what gives Astalift Jelly Aquarysta its signature bold red colour. Astaxanthin is a red compound that’s naturally found in salmon, shrimp, lobster and other sea creatures. It offers 1,000 times the antioxidant content of coenzyme Q10. Plus, astaxanthin has the unique capability of accelerating wound healing and suppressing cellular damage from UV rays and free radicals. This newest formulation of Astalift Jelly Aquarysta uses a more powerful version of nano-astaxanthin than its predecessor. By shrinking its molecule size by 20%, nano-astaxanthin can now absorb quickly into the skin and deliver optimal antioxidant benefits to the epidermis.


Next, we have nano-lycopene. Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that is commonly found in tomatoes, pomegranate and other red or pink-coloured fruits. It helps to protect the skin against UV damage and environmental pollution and neutralize free radicals that lead to premature ageing of the skin. Additionally, lycopene in its nano form adds to the incredible moisturizing power of the Astalift Jelly Aquarysta.

Asenyaku Extract

Also known as gambir leaf extract, asenyaku extract is taken from the twigs and leaves of the evergreen gambir shrub. It is rich in a flavonoid derivative called catechin. Catechin is a natural antioxidant that neutralizes free radicals, stimulates collagen production and protects our skin from UV radiation. In addition to that, asenyaku extract helps to improve the skin’s moisture retention and barrier function.


Finally, Astalift Jelly Aquarysta uses 3 types of collagen in its formulation. This includes the use of a water-soluble, permeable and pico collagen to balance the skin’s moisture levels and promote skin elasticity. Aside from augmenting the skin’s moisture retention capabilities, collagen helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve blood circulation for a radiant complexion.

Who Can Use Astalift Jelly Aquarysta?

Anyone! Although it is amazing for skin that is prone to dryness, it is also suitable and beneficial for all skin types. Whether you have oily, combination, dry or sensitive skin, Astalift Jelly Aquarysta works as an effective booster for your skincare products. Besides elevating your skin’s moisture content, it also helps to regulate sebum production and protect your skin from environmental aggressors. Plus, it has a luxurious Damask rose scent that will instantly calm your mind and revitalize your senses.

How To Use Astalift Jelly Aquarysta?

Using the accompanying spatula, take a generous pearl-sized amount and warm the jelly up in the palm of your hand. Then, take the jelly and spread it gently and evenly onto your face with your fingers. Finally, gently press the jelly into the skin with your hands and let the warmth from your palms melt the jelly into your skin.

The Astalift Jelly Aquarysta Skincare Routine

Healthy and glowing skin is just 4 steps away with the Astalift Renewal skincare routine! Here’s how you can incorporate the Astalift Jelly Aquarysta into your skincare regimen:

1. Astalift Renewal Moisture Foam

First, start by cleansing your skin with the Renewal Moisture Foam. The foam has a very fine consistency and feels incredibly soft on the skin. Like the Astalift Jelly Aquarysta, it contains nano-astaxanthin, nano-lycopene and water-soluble collagen to balance the skin’s moisture content. Additionally, it contains Damask rose extract, shea butter and jojoba seed oil to nourish the skin while it cleanses. Because of its small molecular structure, the nano-ingredients are able to penetrate the pores and thoroughly cleanse them to eliminate acne-causing bacteria. After cleansing, the skin feels instantly refreshed and plump with moisture.

2. Astalift Jelly Aquarysta

Next, it’s important to prep your skin before applying your other skincare products. Astalift Jelly Aquarysta helps to improve the absorption of your skincare ingredients and serves as a protective shield against the elements. While your skin is still damp, take a generous pearl-sized amount and smooth it onto your skin in gentle upward sweeping motions. Then, use the warmth of your palms to press the jelly into your skin. Because it’s incredibly lightweight, it doesn’t leave a tacky residue on your skin once absorbed. The reason why we recommend applying it onto damp skin is because your skin is at its most absorbent when its damp. By applying this powerful concentrate as a base, it helps to instantly retain and lock in moisture by binding water molecules to the epidermis.

3. Astalift Renewal Moist Lotion

After applying Astalift Jelly Aquarysta, it’s time to follow up with a lotion. This Renewal Moist Lotion contains hyaluronic acid to supercharge the skin with moisture and visibly plump up the skin. Due to its highly emollient nature, this lotion is great for softening and soothing dry and itchy skin. Plus, it will also help to improve the penetration and circulation of your other skincare ingredients.

Moreover, it also helps to balance oil and moisture levels in the skin to keep the skin looking fresh and hydrated all day long. If you’re incorporating this skincare routine in the daytime, don’t forget to follow up with an SPF50 sunscreen to protect your skin from UV damage.
