The Face Shop Smart Peeling White Jewel is part in the smart peeling series. I previously used the Peeling Day White Jewel version and loved it. I’m not sure if this is an updated version of that one.
Pearl powder makes skin bright and radiant after exfoliation. Pearl powder ingredients make skin clean and radiant, giving a brightening effect after peeling. Natural cellulose mildly works on skin removing dead skin cells
directions: Apply adequate amount on the face and massage for 1~2 minutes. Wash off with warm water. Use it once or twice a week and be careful not to let it slip into eyes.
Standard plastic tube package in 120ml size. It has a bit of powdery smell of crushed pearls. This peeling gel is slightly different then the usual peeling gels I’ve used. It is not as gel and smooth like. The texture feels more textured and matted. You can almost feel like there is tiny bits of stuff in there to aid in the exfoliation. I’ve been using it on and off for quite a few months now, mostly because I originally didn’t like it very much and stop. Now I’ve started up again and I’ve changed my mind about it somewhat.
This application was tested on my arm in the photo above. I found applying the method of the directions given did not yield good results, that’s why I stopped using it. It really didn’t do the job for me at all. I didn’t find it making my skin smooth or helping the dry areas of my face at all like peeling gel are suppose to. I then went back and decided to give it a few more tries and experimented a bit. Here is what I found was the best way that worked for me. My directions are take enough amount need to apply over entire face. I spread and pad it evenly onto my face, not massaging. Then let it sit about 1 minute and then begin massage for another minute. So that’s the results as shown about. You can see the last photo when it is done using my method the gel becomes a very pasty textured clumps. Meaning it has picked up and rolled up the dead skins and such. Only doing it this way I found it actually works for me! Now, it’s actually useful and won’t be a waste and sitting in my cupboards. LOL I think padding it on and then letting it sit allows it to sink into the skin a little bit to catch all the dirt and dry skins. Cleans out the pores quite nicely too.
In comparison to other peeling gels, this one is a little rough on the skin. I’m not sure if it’s the pearl powders, I find it a little bit abrasive. It’s minor since this should only be used 1 -2 times a week anyhow.
