With cold weather coming our way soon in the Northern hemisphere, I felt that it was time to invest in a good exfoliator to help me manage dry skin that goes hand in hand with Autumn and Winter. One such product that caught my eye was the Neogen Bio-Peel+ Wine Gauze Peeling Exfoliator (quite the Tounge twister!), which is an example of both Chemical and Physical exfoliation.
Neogen is a Korean Skin Care brand that is very nature orientated so they use natural ingredients and innovations found in the wild. The Bio-Peel+ range comes in three different variations such as Lemon (for brighter skin), Green Tea (to soothe skin) and the one I have which is Wine (Anti-Aging).
- I Love the packaging, it’s simple and informative, and it looks very clinical which was clearly the idea behind the design.
- The smell is strong but it’s not offensive as it’s quite a sweet grape scent.
- It doesn’t feel too rough on the skin which can be an issue with some exfoliators.
- After washing it off, my face felt smoother than smooth jazz 😂🎺
How to use:
Step 1: Make sure you cleanse your face first, I like to do a double cleanse using an oil cleanser followed by a foam cleanser which leaves your face makeup and dirt free. The cleansers I’m using at the moment are Simple’s Kind to Skin Hydrating Cleansing Oil and my trusty Cleansing Story Grape Seed Deep Cleansing Foam.
Step 2: Pop one of the gauze pads onto your index and middle fingers and with the gauze side gently swipe it outwards across your face.
Step 3: Now flip the pad over and use the bobbly side to smooth over your face again
Step 4: Rinse your face with warm water and marvel at how smooth your skin is! Continue with the rest of your usual skin care regime such as a toner or essence followed by moisturiser.
I have only used this product twice over two weeks, but I have noticed that on the days that I have used it my makeup has applied much better and there are less flaky dry patches appearing on my face. I might try using it twice a week for the next two weeks and see if that makes the results even better.
