I recently made a post requesting feedback from my readers. Thanks to all that participated. I’m looking forward to your feedback always!
One of my readers requested I do more reviews on products like creams, makeup, etc. So I’m presenting you with my Hello Kitty Apple Gommage Review!
The packaging is really cute, isn’t it?!
Please note this product was purchased by me and it’s been a staple of mine which is why I’m praising it so much, haha.
Also another disclaimer – my skin is far from perfect.. So sorry if my pictures gross you out!
What is Gommage, strawberryjam? ╮ (. ❛ ᴗ ❛.) ╭
It’s a gentle exfoliator with a gel like consistency. It’s filled with enzymes to help slough off dead skin leaving your skin radiant and smooth! (◡ ‿ ◡ ✿) Although my description doesn’t sound like it, it’s much more gentle than traditional exfoliators such as body scrubs, facial scrubs, etc.
Glycerin, apple extract, malic acid, glycolic acid, citric acid, lactic acid, glucose, allantoin
Why is it important that you are gentle with your skin? What can over exfoliating do?
You could potentially be creating micro tears in your skin! It could also lead to the thinning of your skin and potentially speed the aging process. Every girl totally doesn’t want this!
It’s definitely recommended to avoid scrubs that have ingredients like apricot pits and walnut shells. While they are natural, they are very harsh and should be used for skin which is much more tough (like feet)!
So lets see an example! Show us how it works!
My chin is a disaster. It absolutely needs to be exfoliated every couple days, otherwise I have all these white heads growing. White heads isn’t the scientific term, if someone know what they are called, I’ll be so happy to know.
Anyways! You can see the before.. so icky!
I’ll wash my face then and pat dry.
Then I’ll spread the Gommage and massage.
The dead skin is slowly coming off!
And now I look beautiful!
So this is why strawberryjam recommends Gommage!
It’s gentle for my skin and works effectively. My skin is normal with tendencies toward dry, so it may not work for those with more rough skin.
I used to use the exfoliators that had small beads, but I found it to be very drying for my skin and occasionally too harsh causing my skin to peel. But these exfoliators worked for me when I was a teenager and my face was as oily as a frying pan.
Why should I get the Hello Kitty Gommage? Why not another one?
The Hello Kitty Gommage is very inexpensive. It’s $12 including shipping on eBay. And believe it or not, I’ve been using this Gommage since I went to Japan in 2010. YES! 3 YEARS! So it’s lasted me an incredibly long time.. Truthfully, I don’t exfoliate more than once a week due to laziness, but still, a little goes a long way and it will last a long time. I also like the Apple Scent. It is a bit strong, but it doesn’t bother me. Other people that might have issues with scents probably won’t like it because it is not subtle.
And now the drum roll..
Out of 5 strawberries..
I like it! It’s fresh, but it definitely could be strong for some people.
Hygienic and super cute too.
It’s inexpensive and lasts a super long time.
It works really well for me while still being gentle.
