I picked up this mid-priced gel exfoliant from Aritaum in Seoul when I was there earlier this year, and I’ll surely re-stock when I’m back in Kimchi Land.
Most peeling gels – the kind where you rub onto your skin till you get white little balls which are apparently your dead skin cells – over strip my skin.
They leave my skin feeling sensitive, as well as tight and dry afterwards. But somehow, this Iope one does not exfoliate too much and actually moisturises a little as well.
When the South Korean’s formulations do work, they are rather exceptional.
This Iope Soft Peeling Gel is my go-to on days when I’m too lazy to use the Clarisonic; and other physical exfoliants feel too harsh on my skin.
I use this in place of my regular cleanser once a week.
