This is my review on a sample of the Missha Super Aqua D-TOX Peeling Gel which I received when I purchased another product.
It’s a chemical exfoliator, similar to Cure Aqua Gel, and it works when you rub it over dry skin. Dead skin comes off in the form of flakes.
Verdict? It works as advertised, getting rid of dead skin. But when compared to the Cure Aqua Gel (which I’ve been using for the past 2 years), the texture of the flakes is much grittier and feels harsher on my skin.
Cure can be used everyday, and I feel comfortable doing so. But I can’t say the same for the Missha gel. I feel like it’s too sandy and may damage my skin if I do use it everyday.
One thing though, it does rinse off much more easily compared to the Cure Aqua Gel, which tends to leave a residue if I’m not thorough enough when rinsing it off.
At around S$15 for 100ml of product, I suppose it works out to be cheaper than the Cure Aqua Gel, which retails for around S$50 for 250g.
But if this difference in price is not a significant issue, I’d still go for the Cure Aqua Gel.
Overall Rating: (3 / 5) Pros: Effective, cheap, washes off easily and cleanly. Cons: Texture of flakes is gritty and feels harsh on skin.
