Revisited review: VOV Daily Fresh Mini Pack Apple AHA Peeling Gel

(purchased product)

Every year in the summer, I get small pimples on my chin. I have gotten them since I was in high school, and even after consulting several dermatologists, the conclusion is that my skin can’t handle the heat very well. One of the ways I try to minimize the damage is through exfoliation. The VOV Daily Fresh Apple AHA Peeling Gel is one of the most effective exfoliating masks that I have tried! I reviewed this once before (in 2009!!!) and I fell in love with it after trying it again.

What it does: (VOV does not have an English website. I originally tried this because AHA is a known chemical exfoliator)
Price: According to my previous review, these were $1 each in Korea. I bought mine from Sasa in Hong Kong for about 10 HKD ($1.30 USD)
How to use:
This product comes out as a whitish gel. I apply the gel to my face and leave it for a few minutes before washing it off. Amazingly, this product started peeling off immediately after I started applying it, probably because my skin was in dire need of exfoliation!
Pros:
  • This is the most effective exfoliator that I have tried. I could immediately feel the difference in my skin! It was much softer and smoother after using this product.
  • This is a very affordable product, at least in Korea and Hong Kong. (note: not all Sasa stores in Hong Kong carry VOV masks. I pick them up as soon as I find them)
  • I don’t have to peel this mask off. (I don’t like masks that I need to peel off of my whole face – they hurt too much!)
Cons:
  • As with most other chemical exfoliators, this product may sting your skin. Use this carefully if you have sensitive skin.
If you are like me and impatient to see the effects of skin care products, this is a good product for you!
Hope you enjoyed this review!
