Product Review: NeoGen Gauze Peeling Wine Exfoliation Pads


      Continuing with the wine in skincare theme from Monday, today's posts is a review on NeoGen's wine infused facial exfoliation pads. I was attracted to these pads because I don't have anything like them in my skincare collection. While exfoliation pads are common at the drugstore, these exfoliation pads are double sided with one side having a rougher surface for exfoliating while the other side is softer and meant to "sweep up" your dead skin cells. Plus, these are the first pads that I've come across that use resveratrol.

Review

      Like the Holika Holika Wine Therapy Sleeping Mask reviewed on Monday (read the full review here if you're curious), the pads smell like sweet grapes - it smells almost good enough to eat! The pads are generously soaked with the solution and I don't see the pads easily drying up unless you forget to close the jar tightly. The product claims to exfoliate your face gently, and I agree that it does. The cleansing side doesn't feel extremely scratchy or uncomfortable on my face, and since the pads are generously soaked, there is minimal tugging on the skin. I use the pad in circular motions all over my face for around 30-50 seconds on the cleansing side, and then flip it over to the soft side for another 30-50 seconds. The solution does start to feel a bit tight on the skin if you let it dry too much, which is why you need to rinse off the solution after exfoliating. Maybe it's because I exfoliate pretty regularly, but I didn't see too much residue on my pad, but there was a little. To make sure that it wasn't just me, I asked my boyfriend to use a pad and I did see more residue on his pad than mine (maybe I should encourage him to exfoliate more!). The jar suggests using the pads twice a week for best results, but the pads err on the more gentler side of exfoliation so I can see these being used 3-4 times a week without any negative side effects.

Concluding Remarks

      The wine pads are available exclusively at SokoGlam with free shipping if you spend over $50. I haven't seen anything else like these in the beauty market, so if you want to try something different, definitely give these a try!
