Just a warning ahead: This is a rave review because I love this product so so so much! Meishoku Detclear Peeling Jelly might not be widely known among most of you, but I figured out that this is one of the nicest peeling gels I have tried so far, so maybe it is time for you to get to know it.
Meishoku is a Japanese brand and what amazed me most is that their company homepage has an English version as well…Normally, even for more widely known Asian brands it is difficult to get some information in English, so I’m really happy they do have one. Their page contains detailed description to their products and is easy to navigate, too. Most of their products are focussing on skincare, but they also offer some make-up products. The DET Clear Line focuses on AHA/BHA peeling products. This line consists of four different types of peeling jelly, like the one I’m reviewing here today, a fruit enzyme powder wash and a peeling soap. I’m reviewing the Detclear Bright & Peel Peeling Jelly with Mixed Berry Fragrance. The other three peeling jellies have all different fragrances, like Rose and Jasmine, Mixed Fruit Fragrance and a Fragrance-Free version. So it seems that they also thought of people who don’t like fragranced products, which is great.
So we have here a chemical peeling jelly working with fruit-derived AHAs and plant-derived BHAs for getting rid of old cells on the surface of your skin. Since it is a peeling, you should use it 2-3 times per week, but not necessarily daily, although it is really a mild way of peeling compared to scrubs for example. So what do the AHAs and BHAs do? They exfoliate old keratin off your skin, which becomes smoother this way. This has the effect of a brightened up dull complexion, too. Meishoku Detclear Peeling Jelly also helps to free blocked pores and to help dry and flaky skin to get smooth again. The ingredients are unfortunately written in Japanese and also there is no list on their product page, but I figured out that most of the ingredients are plant and fruit extracts. As for the Fragrance-Free Version, it even says, that it is without artificial color, alcohol-free, paraben-free, mineral-oil free, and surfactant-free. In order to use the Meishoku Detclear Peeling Jelly, you have to clean your skin first, dry it up some, but don’t worry if your skin is still damp. You can use either dry or wet hands, too. I used in under the shower, too, and it still works. The product comes in a plastic pump dispenser, so you can easily get your 2-4 pumps, as needed, and distribute it on your face and neck. Massage the skin with your hands and soon you will see how the product forms peeling crumps. These are not your dead skin cells…neither here for this product, nor for any similar working product!
The pump packaging of the Meishoku Detclear Peeling Jelly is really convenient and the design of it looks nice, although it is not super special. It also comes with a clip for the pump, so you can take it somewhere in your bag if needed and can be sure that it won’t be pumped out. The bottle contains 180 ml and lasts quite a long time if you don’t use it daily. The texture of the product is like it supposed to be as a jelly: It is not a super solid kind of jelly, but a runnier type of product. The scent of this version of the Peeling Jelly is fruity, but not too intense. I, for my part, like it :) After rinsing the crumbs off, the skin feels clean and soft. Indeed the appearance of my skin is less dull. But all these points cannot be captured by pictures in a review. But what I can tell you and what was the most surprising thing about it is that my makeup lasted longer. Normally, when I apply BB cream in the morning, I start to see it flaking after lunch on my chin and around my nose. When I’m using the Meishoku Detclear Peeling Jelly I don’t have any of this issue and I can wear the BB cream all day long without worrying. The reason for this is the removal of dead and dry skin cells, which normally make it difficult to create an even surface. I love this Peeling Jelly now so much and I can recommend you to try it. There are other known (and more expansive) peeling jellies out there, but I can tell you that this one is also worth a try. ♥ I received my new HG bottle of Pelling Jelly from lunaTu. This UK-based shop for Japanese and Korean products sells this product for 15 £. Check out their shop, especially if you live in Europe. This will be a great chance to receive your loved Asian beauty products faster than usually. I also received the Shiseido Integrate Eyeshadow Palette from them, which I reviewed earlier. You can also get Meishoku products from Amazon.com.
