There are two different versions of this one, one that says Gentle Gauze Peeling (new version and contains PHA). The one that doesn’t have the word Gentle one it is the old version. This one is the old version or the international version.
They simply differ in ingredients and you don’t have to rinse off the new version.
There seem to be a problem when getting the new version internationally, and I don’t know about the regulations or why.
How to use it
Cleanse your face, I always double cleanse
Put your fingers inside the gauze with the harsh side towards your face.
Massage the skin gently, with circular motions for about a minute, start with the face and move down to
neck and chest.
Switch to the softer side and swipe across the face
Rinse off with lukewarm water.
Tone and continue with your regular routine.

My thoughts on Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Pads Green tea
I had my hopes set for this one since I simply loved the wine version of it. Sadly, this one doesn’t make my skin very happy. Instead it makes my skin drier. Comparing this one to the wine version it is a huge difference and I have checked that I had the same version of them, that is the 2015 version.
My skin is really dry so it is really important for me to exfoliate or it will simply look patchy instead of smooth, and the products I add on top will simply not penetrate.
The packaging is really nice, the pads are easy to get out and to use, just follow the instructions. There are also ingredients in English on the jar, so that is really nice as well. I really like when I can read on the packaging instead of google the information for the product.
I have been using this for a while now and I do think they do exfoliate ok but the feeling after is more on the “make my skin drier” side, that soft and smooth.
Usually I am a sucker for products with green tea and they usually work very well with my skin, so I was surprised of my feeling for this.
I give this product 3/7
