REVIEW: Mizon Vita Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel

I love peeling gels because they exfoliate skin without any of the abrasiveness of scrubs.  When I heard Mizon had a lemon peeling gel, I had to get my hands on it!  It was also voted Best Peeling Gel in Allure Korea’s Best of Beauty Award 2015! 😍

Mizon’s peeling gel comes in a 150g (5.29oz) size.  On the packaging, it says it is “skin tightening”, “moisturizing”, and makes skin “glow.”  I have typically used peeling gels in the past to get rid of dead skin cells, which results in glowing soft skin.

INGREDIENTS

Water, Glycerin, Peg-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Steartrimonium Methosulfate, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Cellulose, Water , Isopropyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Salvia Hispanica Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Houttuynia Cordata Extract, Fragrance, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Fruit Extract, Propanediol, 1,2-Hexanediol, Coptis Chinensis Root Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Carbomer, Propylene Glycol, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Water, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Gypsophila Paniculata Root Extract, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Nelumbo Nucifera Flower Extract Lilium Candidum Flower Extract, Leontopodium Alpinum Flower/Leaf Extract, Convallaria Majalis Root Extract, Magnolia Liliflora Flower Extract, Paeonia Lactiflora Root Extract, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil.

PACKAGING

SCENT

The scent is light and lemony at first, as you’d expect.  However, I found that when I started rubbing the gel on my face, there was another, more unpleasant smell that came through.  It’s hard to describe but it kind of smelled like a wet rag and it definitely wasn’t pleasant.

TEXTURE

IMG_7656The gel was a semi-opaque light yellow color and slippery at first.  After I started massaging the product on my face, it became less slippery and quickly started pilling up as peeling gels normally do.  The clumps of gel looked more white by the time I was done massaging.

PERFORMANCE

img_7657.jpgI put the product on my face after cleansing and thoroughly drying with a towel.  As I described above, the product goes on very smoothly because it is slippery before it starts to clump up.  After about 10 seconds of massaging the product onto my face, it started clumping up, which is the best part! That’s when you know the dead skin cells are coming off your face 😱  I continued massaging until I felt like no more clumps were forming, then rinsed everything off with water.

My skin felt so smooth and soft after I dried my face with a towel, although a little bit dry.  Also, the whole process was very gentle (this is why I love peeling gels) – nothing scratching my face and no stinging.

TL;DR

Pros:
– Pump bottle is easy to use
– Leaves skin very soft and smooth
– Removes dead skin using a completely gentle process

Cons:
– Skin felt slightly dry after using the gel
– Smell can be unpleasant

The Bottom Line: I would definitely use this gel again!  I love the way it makes my skin so soft and smooth.  I think I can get past the smell because it’s not very strong, and the slight dryness isn’t anything that couldn’t be solved with a little moisturizer (which you should be using after an exfoliation anyway).
