In search of a new exfoliator I came accross some good reviews and decided to get Neogen Dermalogy Bio Peel Gauze – Wine. There are 2 more options: Green Tea and Lemon, but I decided to get Wine because of the beautiful purple color and I like the grape/red wine scent 🙂
Product description: ‘A chemical and manual exfoliator that uses natural ingredients and innovative triple-pad technology to promote visibly clear, smoother, and brighter skin.
– Uneven skin tone
– Dullness and uneven texture
Suggested use: After cleansing, remove moisture then softly wipe from bottom to top, toward outside of entire face & neck with 1 pcs of peeling pad. -After using gaze peeling side then lightly padding with embossing side and wash with lukewarm water. 1. Insert your finger between gauze peeling pad side and embossing side. Use 1 pcs for a day. 2. Try with the gauze peeling side first. Wipe softly. Mesh gauze neatly remove the dead skin cells. 3. Try with the embossing side with gently pressure. It removes perfectly the remain waste. Wash with lukewarm water.’
Neogen wine peeling gauzes come in a big simple designed plastic jar with white lid. Not travel friendly.
Price is around 27 $ for 30 gauzes (single use).
Gauzes are slightly bigger than your average cotton pad. They are soaked in a high concentration of active ingredients that will leave your skin smoother. There are 2 textures – rougher side (crisscrossed) and smoother side (looks like honeycomb).
First, you exfoliate your face with crisscrossed side and then smooth it all in with the smooth side.
Each gauze has its sleeve where you can insert your fingers to comfortably exfoliate and manoeuvre around your entire face, neck and chest. After this process it is important that you rinse your face with lukewarm water and proceed with your regular skin care.
I use them 2 times a week.
Active ingredients are: Resveratrol / Polyphenol / Tartaric acid / Raspberry / Latic Acid / Glycold Acid.
Reservitol is a polyphenolic antioxidant that can be found in red grapes and red wine. It helps protect skin’s surface and helps rebuff negative environmental influences. It promotes growth of healthy cells and keeps the skin healthy. It also has skin-calming properties that may help minimize the look of redness. It is an antioxidant with powerful anti-aging benefits, including prevention of wrinkles and pigmentation.

The smell of the product is quite strong and it smells like grape and/or wine. It disappears after washing your face.
I like the concept of the product and I like its simplicity of use. It gently exfoliates my skin and I will repurchase it, but next time it will be the lemon essence one.
