Bio-peel Lemon & Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser Review by Jane

Skin in Need of a Deep Cleanse? These Two Products Are Must Haves


by Jane (The Glam Gamer)



When it comes to keeping our skin deep clean we can all use a little help. Not everyone can make an appointment for a facial and that’s when deep cleansing products that you can use in the comfort of your home are essential.

Neogen Dermology has the solution for a thorough and effective deep skin purging that will reset, renew and clarify.



Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon, $27, does double duty as a gentle peeling and brightening product. The 3 layered cotton pad is drenched in gentle lactic and glycolic acids as well as extracts of lemon, papaya (the papain enzyme is excellent for getting rid of dead skin cell buildup) and orange. The lemon extract gives it a fresh, pleasant scent.

The textured gauze side of the pad gently exfoliates and gets rid of dead skin cells and unclogs pores. The inner cushion pad holds the extracts liquid and helps reduce irritating friction. The soft, quilted side removes the exfoliated debris and soothes skin. Over time skin is clarified and post acne marks are faded.

The pad is convenient and easy to use. After cleansing and toning, remove a pad from the jar and place 2 fingers in the opening of the mitt like pad. Use the textured gauze side to gently exfoliate using outward circular motions. Turn the pad over and use the soft, quilted cotton side to clean up after exfoliating and brighten skin. Use once or twice a week depending on your skin type. After using it on my face, I’ll often use it on my elbows and knees, followed by a moisturizing lotion to keep them smooth.



Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser, $27, is another double duty product that functions as a cleanser and masking pack in one. This product was a Soko Glam Best of K-Beauty Award Winner.

This cleansing clay to foam product absorbs impurities, oil and even makeup while carbonic acid capsules foam to loosen clogged pores and clear them. Impurities are lifted off skin so oxygen can refresh, calm and soothe skin. The scent is fresh and earthy.

To use as a cleanser, simply apply the clay, about 1 mm thick, to your face (the clay can be used over makeup if you desire but I suggest avoiding the eye area) and allow to remain on for about 5 minutes while the clay and carbonic acid purifies and clarifies skin. Add lukewarm water so the clay will foam and gently massage the soft bubbles over your face and rinse thoroughly. Pat dry with fingers or a soft towel.

You can also use it as a mask as a soothing way to detox and exfoliate. after cleansing and toning and drying skin, repeat the steps above.



Note, see above: After removing the Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser jar seal (top photo), you will find a soft cloth cover underneath (above left). This helps preserve the clay and keep it from drying out and ensures it will foam. You can continue to place it back over the clay to help keep it moist. There is a clear plastic lid (above, right) included that you should place on top of the jar, underneath the main lid, after each use. This prevents air from getting inside and drying out the product.

The Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon and The Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser could be used as part of a deep cleansing skin detox routine. Cleanse and tone skin and pat dry. Use the Bio-Peel Gauze to exfoliate and brighten skin, pat dry afterwards. Apply the Canadian Clay to the face per directions, rinse, pat skin dry and follow with your regular serum, moisturizer, etc. This combo can be done once per week or every 2 weeks depending on your skin type and needs.

My experience with these products is great. The Bio-Peel Gauze leaves my oily skin feeling fresh and clean without any burning, stinging or redness. The Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser is fun to use and excellent at removing skin wastes so skin can breathe easy. By exfoliating and deep cleaning, these help your other skin care product to work better. They are also perfect for when your skin is misbehaving, like during your premenstrual or period time. During summer heat and humidity they help balance out and control sebum production.

Bio-Peel Gauze Peeling Lemon and Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser are suited for all skin types and are especially beneficial for oily, combo/oily and troubled skin types. For a spa facial-like deep cleansing at home, these products are must haves.

As always, thank you for reading. Remember, the truest form of beauty is a kind heart.

NEO I VIEW<br>Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask Review by Elaine

Pink Cactus Liftmax Knit Mask Review by Elaine

Neogen’s innovative thick, plush knit material masks have been the talk of the Kbeauty community since its launch in March 2017. The unique sweater-like, knitted-cotton material has passed the clinical human skin irritation test and proven to be non-irritating even on sensitive skin types.

I’ve received quite a few requests to test out this mask and a poll on my Instagram account showed that the majority of my readers are more curious about this pink cactus variant. I will be testing out the white truffle variant in a separate post.

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Review by The Glam Gamer

I don’t mind multi-step skin care routines. For each step is not only beneficial but a way to relax, pamper my skin and have some much needed me time. However, I won’t complain when skin care can be condensed into a double duty or multi-step product. 

Neogen Vita Duo Cream Joan Day Joan Night, $32, is a collaboration with beauty influencer Joan Kim, a popular YouTube leader in KBeauty, fashion and all things Korean. Cruelty free Neogen is one of her favorite brands so it makes sense that she would collab with them. The Vita Duo Cream comes in a container with 2 separate and generously sized compartments, one for each cream plus a spatula to aid in application. A protective inner plastic seal with each side labeled keeps the product fresh and protected.

Joan Day - Joan Night: The Dual Cream your skin needs for all-day care

That's how the Joan Day - Joan Night moisturizer was born, a Dual Cream containing two separate compartments, one for daytime use and one for nighttime use. The Day Cream is formulated with a Green Tea and Vitamin C combo that delivers intensive soothing and calming benefits for the skin while energizing and reinforcing it. On the other hand the Night Cream is formulated with lavender and Vitamin E which together help soothe and strengthen our skin's natural power.

Real Cica Micellar Oil & Foam Review by Bambi

I feel like 2018 is a Cica year - all the Cica products that we can see all around the place. This trend seems to be associated with K-beauty but it's not only about Korean brands that started this cult. There's always a reason why something becomes popular so I was positively surprised when I heard that Neogen has decided to make a series based on Centella Asiatica and release the Cica series. Currently, my double cleansing is based on Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Oil and Neogen Cica Micellar Cleansing Foam. How does it look like and why you should give a chance to this due?
