Rosette Hello Kitty Apple Gommage Review
Doods, busiest day evers for the Muse. Happy Tuesday chickets! We are halfway over the hump…kinda…sorta…not really.
Since we babbled a little about the new Rosette Hello Kitty Collection I thought I’d review some more of the line today for you!
I briefly spoke to you yesterday about how Rosette has introduced a limited edition collection with a Hello Kitty theme. Obviously, the packaging is what appeals the most on these cute pieces. The collection consists of two cleansers, one for normal skin, one for acne, a facial peel, and a 4 in 1 moisturizer. Today I’ll be reviewing the Rosette Hello Kitty Apple Gommage for you.
I personally find gommages sparse in the US market where as they are common place in the Asian skin care world. A gommage is a gentler exfoliator that isn’t quite your typical scrub. It’s not grainy, it’s not sugary but it is none the less considered an exfoliator of sorts. Gommages are commonly known as facial peels. The basic idea is to apply the product onto dry skin and rub it away. The rubbing action helps to rid your skin of dead skin cells. It all my experiences with this type of peel/exfoliator I’m never really sure if it’s doing much for my skin but I will say my skin feels squeaky clean after use.
Rosette Hello Kitty Apple Gommage is a gentle facial peel. It’s scented like crisp apples and makes my feel extra soft after use. It’s a typical gommage in the fact that’s it’s a gel formula. I apply a quarter size amount to my dry face and massage in. As I massage the product begins to break up and pill into small balls (you can see close up action of this effect in my photos below). This is NOT skin just the product “peeling” away. After use my skin feels noticeably softer and squeaky clean.
Overall, it’s a rather nice little peel. As I mentioned above I really can never tell if it’s doing much for me. My skin at the moment is quite normal however if I was flaky or dry I do find I need to use a scrub rather than a peel to really slough away dry, dead skin. I actually do like this over a regular grainy formula as I find regular scrubs of this type tend to dry my skin out so this is nice for as my skin is behaving nicely as of late!
I got mine at retail from JpMon but you can grab it at YesStyle for $18. Please keep in mind this about three times the retail price in Japan as the product runs a mere $6 or so dollars in drugstores but if you’re REALLY into Hello Kitty and aren’t interested in doing an order from JPMon you can indulge from YesStyle.
