It’s a bit weird, really. Because it’s not a peel that you put on, wait for it to dry and wash off. It’s a gel that you rub into your skin, then clumps form that make you wonder if it’s dead skin cells/dirt or the product itself clumping as your rub. I have no idea if this thing is a gimmick or not or of it’s actually taking my skin cells off. I saw a review where someone claimed to have tried on a plastic surface with rubber gloves and the lumps still appeared. So who knows. It reminds me a bit like PVA glue. If you’ve ever put PVA glue on your hands as a kid and then rubbed it off, you’ll know what I mean. If you haven’t, then you missed out.
If it’s real dead skin cells or not, it’s satisfying.
I like this product a lot. My skin felt very clean after use and a bit bright. Woo.
