I have a favorite peeling gel from Korean brand The Face Shop with papaya enzymes. Smart Peeling Milk Papaya Peeling cleanses the skin very gently, without causing any irritation or bad reactions. It smells very nice. A fruity fresh scent with a sour note.
What the manufacturer promises:
Cleansing and exfoliation take places thanks to the activation of the fruit acids during the formation of the cellulose granules. These granules gather dead skin cells, city pollution, excess oil. Using a peeling gel is the safest skin renewal manipulation, which will suit people with any skin type.
Water/Eau, Butylene Glycol, Peg-8, Steartrimonium Methosulfate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Sodium Hyaluronate, Triethylhexanoin, Cetrimonium Chloride, Papin, Isopropyl Alcohol, Parfum/Fragrance
BUT in our group Korean Tricks everyone raves about another peeling gel from The Saem, so of course I ordered it.
This peeling gel is more aggressive and cleanses more seriously. The cellulose particles aren’t as soft as those in the papaya peel. The scent is more traditional and smells like a classic cream. I think it’s more suitable for oily and combination skin.
The Saem Cell Renew Bio Micro Peel Soft Gel contains:
– Microcrystalline cellulose – cleanses, absorbs sebum, exfoliates dead skin cells making the skin more even and improving skin tone.
– Plant stem cells – a special material from buds and stems of plans with a unique ability to restore skin tissue. Stem cells actively combat aging, cleanse and restore cells after stress, improve cellular metabolism, support diminishing with age collagen and elastin production, increase skin’s vitality, strengthen and hydrate the skin and make it more elastic.
– Pine bark extract – a strong antioxidant with a hydrating and soothing effect, strengthens capillary walls, prevents destruction of collagen and elastin (information from the official brand website)
You can order this peel from eBay or Amazon.
I have thin, dry, very sensitive skin, so here’s my conclusion:
I will use both since I bought then, but The Saem one more seldomly. And the next time I’ll buy the papaya peel, it suits me better.
