Bihada Ichizoku Peeling Clear Gel Review

‘ello my dear girls (and boys)!

I hope I’m not boring you too much with my coverage on the Bihada Ichizoku line. I got many a fine request via e-mail asking for the reviews but I’m always happy to hear your feedback here via comments. You ok with the reviews so far? Likey? Do tell your dear old Muse.

Today I hauled out my Bihada Ichizoku Peeling Clear Gel and thought to myself what a fine little peel it would be for someone who hasn’t experienced the joys of a peeling gel!

Check it after the jump!

I know we’ve been through it before but sometimes a new reader pops up so just a recap on what a peel is.

Peeling gel is used on a dry clean face. You massage it on and it begins to pill up on your face, supposedly this action removes dead skin cells, etc…

Bihada Ichizoku Peeling Clear Gel, same concept as all peeling gels. Rub it on, watch it pill, and proceed to rinse with cool water. The difference between this peel and others? They recommend this for your nose area as it promises to unclog pores from both nose and face. I’ve tried it on my nose and see little to no results in unclogging the pore area however it works fine on my face. Not so much unclogging pores as I really don’t have large pores but it’s a gentle way to exfoliate my skin as normal sugar scrubs, grainer scrubs tend to make my skin very tight.

I recommend this, as with all peeling gels, for a gentler way to exfoliate dry skin and of course the cute manga packaging doesn’t hurt does it?

I suggest checking out E-bay for this one as the Amazon shop I normally recommend has it way above retail at $26.99 which is a little high for this as it’s a smaller size.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I absolutely love it when you do any Asian brand reviews. So I do not mind at all! The more reviews the better since I truly do take your reviews to heart 😛 and buy based on what you think when it comes to all a lot of facial products!!!

    I’ll try any peeling gel…to be honest!! I finally got my cure natural aqua gel…and I can’t get enough of it!! My whole family, bro, dad, sis, mom use it believe it or not!!! So definitely am all for gels like this and will try to get this but dang it why so expensive when I just need 7 more bucks and I can get another cure natural aqua gel which is bigger with free shipping and so many samples of the cure and bath salts, too!!

    I love Japanese peeling gels! I got one in Japan called “Grapia” in a pump bottle, it smells like grapes and is amazing. It doesn’t feel like much at first (I thought it was just a gimmick) but I think it has mild AHA/BHA contents which definitely make my pores feel less congested by the next day.
