Peeling Packs or Peeling Gels are products that ‘peel’ away, or remove the top layer of dead skin gently, usually using fruit acids to do so. Unlike a face scrub, these gels generally don’t have any ‘grains’ in them, they can be runny or thick textured and the user will see little bits of dirt coming away in ‘balls’ (see pic).
Are these ok for sensitive skin? Well you are supposed to use this once or twice a week – I have done this and my highly sensitive skin hasn’t any issues
The four I have tried are Laneige Strawberry Yoghurt Peeling Gel, CURE Natural Aqua Gel, Skinfood Pineapple and MEISHOKU Detclear Fruits Peeling Jelly (behind on reviews!).
Other brands to try: Rosette Hello Kitty Peeling Gel, Skinfood, Tony Moly, Laneige, Cure, Etude House, Innisfree, Shills, Kokurydo.
Candy Says: I really like peeling gels – the ones I have tried so far have been gentle enough on me and they really seem to slough away the top layer of dead skin leaving a brighter result.
