Hello Lovelies! 💕If you follow my Instagram, by now you’d probably know my love for K-beauty products. I have lots of products inspired by Korean beauty skincare regime. Today I’ll be reviewing one of them. It’s the Innisfree wine peeling jelly softener. For a very long time, I was not sure about what this product was. But as my interest for K-beauty increased, I gradually came to know what peels were. So, let’s directly dive into the review.
Price: It retails for Rs.900 for 180ml product. It has a shelf life of 2 years.
Availability: This is easily available online as well as at Innisfree stores.
Packaging: It comes in a dark coloured plastic opaque bottle. The packaging makes it look like a mini wine bottle itself. There is an outer plastic sturdy cap which prevents product spilling but there is also a little cap fitting inside which seals the opening. It makes it even more spillproof and breaks its contact with the air.
The packaging seems very impressive initially but it becomes a pain to remove the inner cap fitting every time for usage. If you have short nails, there are no means by which you can remove it by your hands. I am tempted most of the times to throw it away but I am concerned about the product inside. It might get spoiled. (It’s better not to mess with the packaging!)🤷🏻♀️
Texture: It is a milky-watery fluid which smells like heaven! It smells exactly like khatta meetha gole ka sherbat. 😋Slrrrrrrrp!!!🤤 So far, I haven’t sniffed or tasted wine, so can’t compare the scent to it. The consistency of Innisfree wine peeling jelly softener is very thin and a little less than a coin sized amount is required for one-time use.
Directions for use: The packaging says that it needs to be poured on a cotton swab and then gently swept on the face (like a toner I suppose) and follow with a lukewarm water rinse. 💦
How I use this? I take little less than coin size amount on my palm and with the help of fingers, I apply it generously on my face. I keep it for about 30 seconds and then start rubbing. The product then starts balling up. I don’t really know whether it’s the dead skin or the product that comes off but my skin has an instant glow after using this. I follow it with a normal water rinse and a toner.
Ingredients: Water, Glycerin, Cellulose, Propanediol, Wine Extract, Ulmus Davidiana Root Extract, Amaranthus Caudatus Seed Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, Ficus Carica (Fig) Fruit Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Orchid Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Opuntia Coccinellif, Era Fruit Extract, Sodium Hyaluronate, Hydrogenated Lecithin, Peg-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Beta-Glucan, Ethylhexylglycerin, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Disodium Edta, Ceramide 3, Fragrance, Phenoxyethanol
Efficacy: It works as a more of skin polisher. It makes the skin glow and evens out the texture. I use it every 4- days in my night time routine.
The verdict on Innisfree wine peeling jelly softener:
I’ve shunned physical exfoliators as they can be very harmful to the skin. And Innisfree wine peeling jelly softener is the perfect substitute for them. It is a very mild exfoliator which does remove dead skin and restores the glow of the skin. ✨ As it is mild, those extreme dry patches won’t go in one use but a prolonged use with definitely show results. It has not broken me out so far which means my skin is loving it. It doesn’t even give that drying sensation post usage which many scrubs tend to give.
I’ve used it on my acne as well and it hasn’t irritated them or gave a burning/stinging sensation.👍🏻
Will I repurchase? 🤔I can’t really say because I have a whole bottle to finish and it is going to take me more than 3-4 months to empty it. Though slightly on the expensive side, it is definitely worth a try!
Until next time, stay beautiful & keep smiling!
