How to use it
Apply a moderate amount onto a cleansed face. Don’t take to much or you will have to massage longer to get the result you need. Make sure that your hands is dry. Spread a thin layer over your face and massage gently for about 1-2 minutes, rinse with lukewarm water. Use once or twice a week.
My thoughts on Beauty of Joseon Apricot Peeling Gel
No matter what type of skin you have you really should use some type of exfoliating product. As for my skin that ends up in the category super dry desert like skin type it is absolutely crucial that I do. If i don’t my skin becomes flaky and I will have really dry patches on my skin. These dry patches makes it impossible for the products I put on top to actually penetrate and do its job.
But still you should never over exfoliate your skin or it will start acting up on you. I am working on a post on exfoliating just to try and describe that problem a little bit more.
Joseon Apricot Peeling Gel is a really gentle exfoliating product. I have tried a few different types of peeling gels before but this is absolutely my favorite so far.
The packaging is a regular soft plastic tube and there is not much to say about it.
As for its ability to exfoliate my skin it does a great job. If you don’t exfoliate on a regular basis this might not be enough for you to start with. I use sugar scrubs as well and in between those I use this one. So approximately sugar scrub once a week, then this one week and then a sugar scrub again. This of course depends on how my skin is behaving and what other types of products I am using. Sometimes I need to exfoliate twice a week.
On my skin the Joseon Apricot Peeling Gel does an amazing job in removing dead skin cells. It does leave some kind of residue on my skin, that I really can’t explain more than that it is something. It doesn’t bother me and my skin does not feel dry after using it.
This peeling gel will not stick in your facial hairs (I just hate when that happens), so it is really easy to use as well as remove.
It is scented but it is a fresher scent and more citrus like than flower like (at least that is the thought of my nose).
This is really a product I recommend. And if you are new to peeling. A peeling gel is really a great product type to start with just to explore a little. This one does a great job.
I give this product 7/7
