I have such a thing for aqua themed skin care products! I absolutely loved the Mizon Returning Starfish Cream and even if the Nature Republic Super Aqua Max Combination Watery BB Cream didn't work quite well as a moisturizer, it's great as a face primer!
Sorabee stands for Starfish Organically Radiates Beautiful Evolution - a really pretty name if you ask me. The Sorabee Balancing Aqua Cream, is a skin care product that helps strengthen skin's own moisture balance and protective barrier. It contains starfish collagen, purity of sea water and phophyridium cruentum extract from plankton in ocean spa giving a moisturizing and elastic, radiant effect to the skin."
Containing 70g of product, it is housed in a blue squeeze tube container with a flip cover which helps for easy product dispensing. I kinda hate the fact that you have to twist open a cap and squeeze out product and then replace it back again once you're done so this one suits my taste perfectly.
I love how this product smells - it is very similar to the Nature Republic Cream I reviewed. There's something about "ocean-clean" scented products that just tickles my fancy - it smells manly. The product is a white, watery-cream formula. What's cool about this is that it actually forms "water drops" and when it does it feels absolutely on the skin. It feels like rubbing water all over the skin with a little bit of gel feel to it. Nothing unpleasant about it.
Here's a photo I found on that net on how the Sorabee Balancing Aqua Cream is supposed to work on different skin types:

This balancing cream is supposed to be used on top of you face lotion but I don't think it's really necessary to do that. I think it works quite well under or on top of a moisturizer. Since it is a balancing cream and not really an intense hydrating cream, it is understandably milder than other cream products. Product texture and feel on the skin is very similar to the Doctorcos Amino Acid Hybrid Sheet Free Mask though I prefer this more than that one.
Overall, it is moisturizing and definitely balances out the skin. It makes the skin feel more supple and radiant and is especially great for use during the daytime as it is of a mild formula.
