Dr. G Brightening Mild Peeling Gel Review

A vital part in caring for your skin is exfoliation. I am a firm believer in exfoliation because it helps rid the skin of unwanted dead skin cells. Exfoliation also helps to accelerate cell turnover. We shed skin, it's a natural bodily function and process but as we age, this process begins to slow down. Dead skin cells that build up on the surface of the skin can cause a myriad of skin related issues such as acne, dullness and dehydration. Due to my sensitive skin, I must be very careful in how I exfoliate my skin because some products that exfoliate can cause irritation and increase skin's sensitivity. 

Dr. G is a very popular brand in Korea and although I had heard great things about the brand especially when it comes to sensitive skin and acne prone skin, I had never tried any of their products. Founded by respected Korean dermatologist Dr. Gun Y. Ahn who suffered facial burns as a child, the brand uses scientific training, state-of-the-art technology and high quality ingredients to create products for sensitive and troubled skin. The G stands for Gowoonsesang which means"Beautiful World" and Dr. G is the world's second largest medical skin care group in Korean with over 15 clinics. 

I decided to try one of the most loved and celebrated exfoliators in Korean (and in Asia for that matter), the Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel in Mild. I got this product from BBCosmetic, a online retailer that ships worldwide. 



Purpletale's Once Upon a Neck Cream Review

For the past few months, I have been testing the Once Upon a Neck Cream from the brand Purpletale and wanted to share my review. I received this product courtesy of the lovely Young-Ji Park, the founder and creator of Purpletale. For those of you new to the brand, Purpletale is a popular Korean beauty brand that creates simple and easy to use products that are rich with ingredients to make you look and feel beautiful. I have reviewed their Ode to Hydration Cream here if you'd like to read that review too. When I was first approached by the company I immediately fell in love with the simplistic packaging and the beautiful, purple glass containers. I also love the Purpletale philosophy on skincare which is all about using products that contain results driven ingredients.
