When you think about your skin care routine, we usually think about our skin care products and we often ignore that creating a comprehensive skin care routine can help get our skin feeling brand new in no time. We cannot stop time but we can always slow down the process. In fact, Collagen and elastin in our skin start to decline at the age of 25, and free radicals are harder to get rid from our body.
When we talk about skin care and how to slow down aging process, it’s time for us to check if we really started our skin care routine with deep cleansing. The first step of slowing down aging process is to remove dirts, oil and bacteria from the face and body so that we can start with a clean, and healthy slate to work with the next steps in anti-aging skin care routine.
Exfoliation should be part of our skin care routine because it shed dead skin cells and increase the skin’s cell turnover to bring out brighter, and younger skin. It washes away excess dirts which cannot be removed by a mere cleanser because it penetrates the problem areas to remove old, and damaged skin cells to reveal a refreshed and smooth skin.
When handling delicate and aging skin, it’s important to pay attention by massaging in circular motions to stimulate the skin as well as increasing the blood circulation because aging skin can be very sensitive to tugging and pulling. Talking about sensitivity of the skin, I’ve decided to try out Chriszen Strawberry Exfoliating Gelwhich claimed to be mild and gentle to the skin. Here’s the review about this product after using it for a month. I use it twice to thrice a week on my face and body.

What I Say
Chriszen Strawberry Exfoliating Gel Mild & Gentle comes in a 250g squeezable tube with a lid cover. The product comes in a light red gel, just like strawberry jam. It has citrus scent which I find it’s quite nice, and I actually fall in love with the scent. The product said to be formulated in Korea, and packaged in Malaysia. The gel has a very liquid concentration, and it makes my skin feels refreshed without the taut feeling.
This exfoliating gel is gentle enough to the skin and is made suitable for all skin types but might be a little harsh for sensitive skin. It targets and treats specific skin care concerns as it fades discoloration, and even out skin tone. I noticed my skin has become softer and smooth after every application. Moreover, it lighten my pimple scars.
Chriszen Strawberry Exfoliating Gel Mild & Gentle is a nice exfoliator because it’s so gentle to the skin. It won’t whiten the skin even though it claimed to be able to whiten the skin because I only noticed that my skin has become renewed, in other words, without the dull skin. It also helps to reduce the appearance of pimple scars, and prevent pimples to reoccur.
I think this exfoliating gel is quite cheap because I still have more than half of it though I have used it for a month, twice to thrice a week of application. It’s a good exfoliator gel because it gently removes grims, and dead skin cells.
