REVIEW: NEOGEN BIO PEEL GAUZE PEELING GREEN TEA
By Elisa Lee
The Korean brand Neogen has been very popular the past year, and it keeps on coming with innovative products that my inner skincare addict love to try out! This is the Neogen Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling in Green Tea.
NEOGEN BIO-PEEL GAUZE PEELING GREEN TEA
They have 3 different types of peeling pads: wine version, lemon version and this is the green tea version. There are 30 single-use exfoliating pads inside the tin. It is a gentle peeler that will remove dead skin cells creating a clearer and smoother complexion. The star ingredient is obviously green tea (minerals), that is an anti-oxidant that prevents pre-mature aging and is an anti-inflammatory that helps to soothe irritated skin. It is a 100% cotton mesh gauze pad. It will also remove any make up residents that you have on the skin.
The list can also be found at cosdna.com, where you can see which ingredients might irritate the skin. As you can see it does contain alcohol as well as fragrance. Don't use the product if you are allergic to any of the ingredients in the list below:
Water, Dipropylene Glycol, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Alcohol Denat, PEG/PPG-17/6 Copolymer, Centella Asiatica Extract, Artemisia Vulgaris Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Coptis Japonica Extract, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Extract, Gardenia Florida Fruit Extract, Butylene Glycol, Benzophenone-5, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Tromethamine, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phenoxyethanol, Ethylhexylglycerin, 1,2-Hexanediol, Melaleuca Alternifolia (Tea Tree) Leaf Oil, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.
HOW TO USE
The peeling pad is green, soaked in product. I use this after cleansing, after removing make up. Use one piece of peeling pad, slip 2 fingers into the sleeve and follow the following steps:
Use gentle, circular motions all over a dry face and neck, working your way up to your forehead. This will remove debris.
After that, rotate the pad so that the "bubble" side is facing down. Swipe the softer side across the face to pick up the remaining debris. Throw away the pad and you can rinse it off with lukewarm water. Follow with the remaining steps of your skin care routine. Use twice a week.
I was dying to try these! I love green tea products in general which is why I didn't get the lemon or the wine peeling, but directly went for the green tea version. These pads feel very cooling, it is a gentle exfoliator and you can manage the pressure yourself, so if you want an exfoliator that is more harsh, just use more pressure. I personally love gentle exfoliators so I only go through my skin lightly to remove dead skin cells and left over make up. It does a great job with that and it makes my skin moist and radiant afterwards. These pads have a strong scent, it has a fresh green tea scent to it but I can definitely smell alcohol as well. I am not a big fan of the scent, but it's not that I wouldn't use it anymore, I can bear with it.
The thing that I love the most about these pads is that you can see results instantly. Remaining make up can be seen on the pad, my skin feels softer, moist and it looks more radiant after usage. I love to try innovative products and it was fun using these. I saw that they will release individually packed pads as well which you can easily take with you when you travel, which would be an amazing idea!
