Ask me if prefer to use a physical exfoliant (beads) or a chemical exfoliant (acids), I would say both! What kind of exfoliant combines both physical & chemical exfoliant together, the answer is peeling gel.
I had yet came across a peeling gel that contains AHA & BHA in it until now, thanks to Sample Store. Most of the peeling gel contains fruit enzymes but I find that they don't work as good as acids - AHA & BHA. And that's why I got interested with this new concept of peeling gel + AHA & BHA! hahax~ (^▽^)
Here I have the new Detclear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly in Mixed Berries scent, produced by Meishoku.
Meishoku has built a long history of 128 years by providing good quality skincare products through extensive R&D and by giving first priority to safety as a corporate vision.
Meishoku Detclear Peeling
Jelly is a newly developed skin peeling jelly series that has been introduced to markets around the world. It has a natural fruits derived AHA and plant derived BHA formula that is suitable for dry and sensitive skin. This product is additive-free and will gently peel away melanin-containing dead skin while dissolving black heads and impurities from the pores to reveal a fresh, smooth and radiant complexion. The resulting “new skin” allows the easy application of your daily skincare and makeup products. This amazing peeling jelly is especially suitable for people who have dull-looking skin, blackheads, acne and black spots.
Meishoku Detclear Peeling Jelly comes in 3 variants of mixed fruits, mixed berries and unscented. So ladies, fret no more as you can now simply peel away your “old skin” and have “new skin” every day!
Packaging & Ingredient
The original packaging is written in Japanese and SG's version has a sticker that translate everything in English including the ingredients. From the ingredient list, I can spot lots of names of fruits and vege as well as Malic acid (AHA) & Salicylic acid (BHA) which are commonly used as a chemical exfoliant.
Plastic packaging removed reveals the original bottle with descriptions in Japanese.
Pump type bottle, easy to dispense.
A clear peeling gel that has a sweet-sour scent kinda like strawberries mixed with other kind of berries (just as described - Mixed Berries scent! ^_^).
Lightly spread out the jelly and massage it around on the back of my hand... and viola! Grey crumbs or particles formed... The peeling gel picks up the dead skin cells from the surface of my skin and removing old keratins resulting my skin feeling silky smooth.
Just to let all of you know, my skin is combi-oily (can be very oily at times) and therefore I exfoliate frequently reason being dead skin cells form quickly on my skin. With every single exfoliation, I experience a great difference such as skin looking radiant & smooth immediately comparing to one who produce lesser dead skin cells than me.
Here shows the peeling jelly on my clean face (applied after removing makeup & cleansing)
Spread it around and lightly massage to get the jelly to form round crumbs where it will roll around collecting the dead skin cells. Perhaps the skin on my face is alot less dirty after cleansing therefore the crumbs aren't as grey and dirty like the one shown on my hand.
After rinsing the jelly crumbs off.
I find that the Meishoku Detclear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly (Mixed Berries)..
- has a nice berry scent
- 3 pumps are enough for whole face
- up to 5 pumps if including neck and decollete
- round crumbs form very quickly even when my skin/hands are damp or wet (awesome! ^^)
- painless, no irritation during the process of exfoliating
- easy to roll the crumbs around to remove the old keratin and dead skin cells
- feels cooling and hydrating as the jelly produces a kind of liquid to faciliate the maneuverability of the crumbs
- best to rinse off crumbs with warm water as I find that the very fine ones stayed on my skin when normal temp or cold water is used
- immediately smoothness on my skin after using the jelly (totally loving it!~)
- skin appears a little radiant and looks dewy
- skin absorbs skincare very well when applied right after exfoliating
- same smoothness on my skin can be felt too on the next day
- skin may become sensitive (depending on indivdual) after exfoliating thus suggest not to further apply skincare products that contain acids or pimple cream with strong formula
After dead skin cells along with the old keratin are removed by the acids, be sure to use products that hydrate and moisturize the skin well.
For the Peeling Jelly, I could use up to twice a week with no problem. But I recommend those who do not have oily/acne skin not to exfoliate as much as I do.
Now that I'd tried this, I kinda prefer Meishoku Detclear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly over any AHA/BHA cleansing water. ^_^
