Review: I would like to stress how IMPORTANT it is to exfoliate your skin! Exfoliating helps remove the outer dead skin cells, which can clog pores, and cause skin troubles, so in order for your new skin to regenerate, it is vital to remove the waste built on the skin. I have used this product for more than 2 months, and I have decided to give the review now. When it comes to exfoliation, it needs to become a staple if you want your skin to appear clean and clear. I never recommend exfoliating products that have harsh beads or any type of beads because firstly, the beads just sweep onto the skin and do not remove all the dead skin cells, and second, some beads are actually harsh that they can tare the skin leading to pre-mature aging. I tested this out with a different exfoliate called CURE Natural Aqua Gel (which you guys probably are aware of). I exfoliated twice, first with a bead exfoliate and second with a exfoliating gel – a lot of my dead skin cells came out the second time – in my opinion, be skeptical with bead exfoliates as it may not remove all the dead skin cells off your face. Always look for non-abrasive exfoliants!!!
Nonetheless, this product is to be used twice per week. The gel is greenish-marine colour (we could honestly do without the color in this product it is not necessary!), and is a clear gel somewhat runny consistency. The scent is very fresh – almost smells like an ocean breeze haha. I used about a large coin size on my face (if you use too little, it will absorb right away, which will not allow you to massage the dead skin cells off). It is easily applied and forms a film on the face. You leave this for about 1 minute, however, in my experience, 30 seconds is good too. So, does this work? Yes it does!!! After a few seconds, I start massaging my face gently and these tiny balls start forming on top of your skin. The result is shiny and VERY DEWY skin. I found that this product also helps absorb my skin care products better. It keeps skin moist and hydrated – the Korean SA recommended this product for dry skin. Although I have normal, I did not mind the extra moisture! As for oily skin, it is fine to use this product, but because it may be a tad bit rich, a great tip is to use it before cleansing, and then cleanse afterwards. I absolutely love this gel exfoliate, and I highly recommend it!!!
