First Impressions from a Peeling Gel Skeptic | FT. The Face Shop Mild Papaya Peeling

I discovered peeling gels while delving into the realm of Asian Beauty. They are supposed to be the gentlest alternative to exfoliating. The idea is while lightly massaging the peeling gel around your skin, all the little bits pilling up is supposed to be dead skin cells.

I am a skeptic about this type of product is because:
1) Any peeling gel I ever tested in store pilled up instantly – how am I supposed to know if it’s really dead skin, or the product just drying up instantly?
2) Because it’s so gentle, I feel like it is not an effective exfoliant compared to a physical scrub (HUGE fan of the Italy Towel).

I decided to hang it dry and give the peeling gel a shot and see if it can prove me wrong.

#SampleSunday: Couple of Sephora, mostly Wishtrend!

This is my first time doing a sample post, but it was time to clean out my bathroom drawer.
