Koh Gen Do Soft Gommage Spa Gel

What it is: A botanically enriched peeling gel that gently exfoliates while stimulating circulation and encouraging cellular regeneration. What it does: This gently exfoliating gel moistens the skin while the rubbery peelings form to resurface, enrich, and revitalize. Without the use of harsh granules, this formula’s nourishing and gentle composition makes it ideal for even the most sensitive skin. It maintains capillary health and increased oxygenation, which is essential to healthy skin. Chrysanthellum indicum extract reduces redness and irritation as it smooths, working to help combat common skin problems associated with rosacea. Continued use provides the health of the skin to come into balance.What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates- Synthetic Fragrances- Synthetic Dyes- Phthalates- GMOs- TriclosanWhat else you need to know: Removing dead skin cells allows greater absorption of the nutrient-rich moisture to hydrate deeply. Exfoliating eliminates impurity build-up on the skin, which dulls the complexion and contributes to the development of micromedones (clogged pores).

I wouldn't use it with anything but your hands. It says on the package not to scrub to hard.

Nooooooo you only need to rub this ever so slightly. If you do it too hard it will burn.

I would say if you have super sensitive skin it would be bad for you, after all they do say to not scrub too hard I would stay away from the Clarisonic when using this product

This is not a product you would use with your Clarisonic (you don't want to use any exfoliating product with your Clarisonic actually - too harsh). You could definitely use your Clarisonic with your favorite face wash beforehand though. This product is applied to dry skin after cleansing and then is rinsed off.

You would use your Clarisonic first to clean your skin and then use this.

Question
Is that my skin or the product coming off?
Many other reviewers are talking about how you can actually see your skin cells coming off in little balls. Is that really my skin cells or is that the rubbery peelings the product itself forms?

it's dead skin cells mixed with the product. if it was just the product it would still be clear and translucent. the skin cells make it change color

I think it is probably a combination of both, but, from someone who has incredibly flaky skin that nothing else (including Clarsonic) has worked on, this is incredible stuff. I guarantee that some of that is dead skin cells.

It's the product coming off although certainly you will have some dead skin cells. Highly unlikely you will see much; the product reminds me of glue paste from school!

I think it is skin. I had large chunks of peeling skin before use, and after use my skin was completely smooth and even. So the dead skin had been removed. I wondered the same thing the first time I used it, but this showed me it really is your top layer of dead skin coming off.

That's your actual skin! I know because I use Retin-A so I have flakes that form anyways. After using this product they were gone.

I wouldn't say this has an age per say. It's really just for if you have dry skin. It's very gentle so I think any one of any age could use it.

For any age. Dead skin literally rolls of your face. I have sensitive skin and doesn't irritate it at all.

All ages... It's not listed as anti aging or anything like a specialty skin care item. There is no burning or stinging with it, it basically feels like a watery gel on your face.

I would not suggest every day use for this. Start with once a week, and depending on what other products you use, you may want to up it to twice a week.

i use it twice a week. i think its too effective to use daily - you'd lose too much of the top layers.

I would not use it every day since that can not be good for you. I used it 3 times a week because my skin was in a weird time, but I would use it once a week for sure

I use it twice weekly. I don't know if it would harm your skin to use it daily, but you definitely don't need this particular product daily. Personally, I use this 2x weekly at night, and the other nights I use Dr. Brandt's overnight retinol 2% treatment/serum. Good luck to you!

I also have hormonal acne and after one use this just feels amazing. TBD about long-term effects. The best advice is to drink over a gallon of water a day and combine with a great mask (like this one), then immediately hydrate skin with an acne moisturizer or face oil.

Question
Creates a roughness that won't rinse off?
Is anyone else having this issue? After rinsing, most of my skin is beautiful and smooth, but down by the jawline there was a sharp roughness. I'm not sure if the roughness is the product sticking on skin (or to blonde facial hair) or if it's skin that the product started to exfoliate and didn't completely get. It happened to me slightly and then I let my mother try the product and it happened to her too (and worse)..

Any roughness you feel is product residue. If you have lots of fine little hairs there along your jawline (as I do on my sideburns!) you should find a washcloth takes care of it. Rinse well with warm water then rinse some more. Then make sure to moisturize well past the edge of the product.

When I tried this product several times (before returning it, lol) it made my face rough too. For me it was due to irritation of ingredients/alcohol content. Very drying and irritating.

i'd say no. it may help to make them easier to clean by clearing the dead skin on top. i use a mud mask afterwards, then finish up with a moisture mask.

this is the BEST exfoliator i've ever used, and i'm never going back to the rough stuff again!

I would not suggest using this on your eyelid! It is much too harsh!

If you would like an exfoliating product for the eye area, I would suggest Perricone MD Blue Plasma Orbital. I use this product and find that it was very helpful for flakiness near my eye. It also reduced the milia I had near my eyes.

I would not recommend using this around eyes. In fact, I would try to avoid the eye area as much as possible.

Question
alcohol?
I know the makers of this product suggest it's a good option for those with sensitive skin and rosacea, but I'm really concerned about the large amounts of alcohol in here. Does anyone know what kind of alcohol is it is they use? Because I've done a little research on alcohol, and it is 100% bad news for skin.

I tried this product and have skin with both those concerns of yours. I didn't like it and ended up returning it. It dried out and irritated my skin, and didn't really show any of the benefits it claims to do after several times trying it as instructed. This whole brand of skin care is actually full of stuff that irritates sensitive skin. I don't know what kind of alcohol is in this, but if you know you're sensitive to alcohol, stay far away from this product.
