Nature Republic Almond/Lemon Peeling Gel






 Lemon Peeling Gel
Fresh and moisturizing peeling gel formulated with vitamin C of rich lemon gently removes dead skin cells and impurities.

Almond Peeling Gel
Moisturizing and mild peeling gel with a vitamin E, omega-3 rich almond gently removes dead skin cells and cleans dirt.

Directions
After wash, apply adequate amount evenly on a dry face. Gently massage for 1-2 minutes with lukewarm waster and and and wash off with clean water. Use 1-2 times per week.





See those yellow capsules? That's the vitamin C, i think :P



The problem with this variant is that it is so mild, it doesn't pick up any dead skin. Having tried so many times(with a not so clean face, after cleansing, on my body), this product just won't work on me.

Almond, on the other hand, is thicker and has a whitish color. 



It works!



Pros:


  • It's affordable, for most people. I think it costs roughly about 295 pesos. 
  • It's handy and contains a good amount of product. A 120 ml tube will last you months.
  • It's mild and non-irritating. It does not dry out my skin.
  • The almond variant smells good.
Cons

Lemon Variant
  • It smells like dish soap, Joy Lemon to be exact. 
  • It does not rub off my dead skin well enough.
Almond Variant
  • none
Repurchase? Recommend? 

Yes, for the almond one. For its price, it's a pretty decent product. I've been using it for two months now and it did help make my skin get softer and smoother. Don't waste your time on the lemon variant. It's not worth it. 

What I'm lemming for:

  1. Cure Peeling Gel
  2. Nature Republic Aqua Peeling Gel
  3. Hayan Crystal Oatmeal Peeling Gel
Which do you think should I try out next? Comment below :)

Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash

Have you tried bubble foam cleansers before? If not, then let me introduce you my recent beauty find – Biore Marshmallow Facial Whip Cleanser.

Biore Marshmallow Whip Facial Wash gives you instant foam with just 1 pump without the need for lathering! Ultra fine fluffy foam, with bubbles smaller than your pores, penetrates deep into your pores to remove all impurities and dirt effectively yet gently. Collagen-enriched formula moisturizes skin for a baby smooth touch after wash! Suitable for normal or combination skin.

How it works:  This cleanser is designed to give you rich, instant foam with just one pump. Enriched with Collagen and dense micro bubbles, Biore Marshmallow Facial Whip Cleanser can penetrate pores effectively removing dirt and oil while leaving your skin smooth and hydrated.  It is suitable for normal to combination skin.
How to use: Damp skin. Dispense 1-2 pumps of cleanser in hands. Massage gently on to skin and rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water. In my case, I like to use it as a facial pack by leaving it on for a couple of minutes before rinsing.
Packaged in a white and pink pump bottle, this cleanser is good for 150 pumps of foam. As per advertisement, the product claims to produce dense, bouncy foam similar to marshmallow fluff that cushions skin. Moreover, the ultra fine bubbles are smaller than pores thus penetrating and cleansing the skin better than hand-lathered foam.
True enough, the pump did produce dense, fluffy foam; however, not as big and bouncy as pictured below.
What was advertised:
What I got: -_-
I like how creamy and frothy it looks – just like real marshmallow fluff! Also, it does not slip off my hands easily even when turned upside down.
Pros:
  • Easy to use
  • Time-saver. No need to lather or use a foam net
  • Light, creamy foam that spreads easily
  • No more tugging and pulling of skin
  • Gentle yet effective cleanser
  • No breakouts!
  • Leaves my skin firm and smooth to the touch
Cons:
  • Not available in local stores
  • You will be needing more than 1-2 pumps
Recommendation: Despite the exaggeration on its advertisement, I recommend this product. It cleanses well yet doesn’t sting my skin. If you want to try something new aside from the typical bar and foam cleansers on the market, then get this if you have the chance.
