Taking off dead cells should be done at least once to twice a week to help the skin regenerate new skin cells and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. I recently went to Daiso Suria Sabah after I had a short meeting with my friend. So, I bought a tube of Daiso Smooth & Moist Lemon Peeling Gel after I went around the shop just to try out whether it really peel off the dead cells. Here’s my review after I tested it for a month.
What They Say
This peeling gel exfoliates the old dead skin cells that cause rough skin. It also removes dirt and excess sebum clogged in the pores. Squeeze a pea-sized of gel, and massage all over the dry skin. Rub off dead skin cells smoothly. Wash the remaining residue thoroughly using lukewarm water. Avoid the eyes and mouth areas.
What I Say
The gel has a milky-coloured consistency, and I could feel the cooling sensation upon applying it onto my skin. It has fresh lemon fragrance. The peeling gel took quite a time to exfoliate the dead skin cells. The product just turned into some white or greyish clumps, as if it reacted to the heat.
I thought peeling gel should be more gentle to the skin (especially sensitive skin) but this one is almost nothing. It didn’t even remove impurities or dead layers. It made my skin dry after that, and I had breakouts everytime I used it to exfoliate my dead skin cells.
This product also contains methyparaben which can lead to skin allergy. I also found out that this product has fragrance which is still considered as the number one cause of allergic contact dermatitis to toiletry products which can also means fragrance is behind the breakouts.
It didn’t deliver the what it claimed to be. Not worth for money. Not recommended.
