Ever wondered if there’s a peeling out there that is gentle and still effective? And that smells good? Where you don’t have to hose down your face to remove it? Well, search no more, I got you a new friend. And she smells like sweet Japanese grape candy.
Like for real, no water splashing everywhere, no mess, no nothing, just a gauze pad.
Inside the container you’ll find 30 individual pads for your peeling routine. Those pads have a soft and a more abrasive gauze side and you can slide your fingers inside a small pouch integrated in the pads to make application even easier.
The pads are drenched in the peeling solution which contains a lot of goodies I’ll later get into.
Let’s talk about my hate for smelly things. I have to start out with that I really can’t stand most scents that are artificial, meaning those three buck perfumes from the dollar store give me the absolute urge to vomit. I’m not even going to talk about room refreshers or fabric softeners as this post would turn into a hate manifest. Let’s better talk the gauze peeling pads again. They are scented, but to a degree I like it. I don’t like it when a scent hits you in the face like the bad morning breath of your boyfriend.. Or girlfriend, who even cares. I have to admit that the scent probably evoked a lot of good memories because when I visited Japan I fell in love with their remarkably flavoured grape-candies. That’s exactly like they smell, sweet and tangy, a lil bit sour and you guessed it ~wine-y~. Not that I know anything about wine. Don’t get me wrong, the scent is strong but I’m biased.
After I’ve washed my face, I’ll grab myself a pad and start with the softer side to distribute the serum all over my neck and face area. Then I’ll go in with the gauze side to work my nose, chin and front to give them a good but gentle(!) scrub. My cheeks and neck are then greeted by the softer side in small gentle circular motions.
I’ll let it sit for a while and then rinse the my face with warm water. Following this, I’d continue as usual with my routine.
I use it twice a week, Sundays and Wednesdays and on those days I don’t use my Vit C serum nor do I use my COSRX Salicylic Acid Peeling.
I would buy it again any day. I’m aware that it is not a cheap product and that some of you may be put off by the high pricing of this product, but I can assure you that this is money well spent.
Let’s do some maths! If you spend those 25.90, you’ll get 30 pads which makes about 0.86 CHF per pad which equals, if you use it twice a week, to 1.72 for your weekly use. And I don’t think that’s a big amount of money for the gorgeous plump skin you’ll get.

Long time no glow talk. Recently, there has been a lot of talk about an ancient remedy which has been a steady ingredient in many K-Beauty products over the past years: Propolis. The ancient Greek citadel? No… Not Acropolis. Hydrating, soothing and a powerful weapon against acne and oily skin are only a few good things about Propolis. Keep on reading why Propolis is the employee of the month when it comes to many skin care ingredients. Let’s talk about honey, honey.
