Review : iUNIK Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel

Hello loves!

Last month I received a package from a brand that's very new to me, iUnik. Living in the Philippines, I'm more familiar with Korean beauty brands that already have physical stores in our local malls. Since iUnik caters more to online shoppers, I didn't have the opportunity to discover it for myself until I got an email from their representative. 

So what is iUnik? It's a fairly new Korean cosmetic skincare brand that uses natural ingredients to improve the skin's condition. They have different variants that addresses different issues and skin types. 

I received two products from iUnik—a peeling gel and a serum. I've been using them for a month now. I believe I had to use them for a while to see some results for a more accurate review. :)

Today, I'll share my review of the...

 iUNIK Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel
You can buy this at for only $10.99.

This isn't the first time I've used a peeling gel. If you're not familiar with this product, Popsugar describes it as "are exfoliants. But [...] they are not physical exfoliators. Instead, they utilize fruit enzymes, like pineapple and pomegranate, to dissolve dead skin cells, sloughing them right off. "

For further information, see below the product description from their website:

There's also a product description labeled on the tube (and the bottom part is in English!! I appreciate this because I rarely see Korean brands that have English translations).

The product is housed in a tube that holds 120g of the gel. The tube is made of plastic and easy to squeeze out the product. I like the simplicity of the design—it looks clean and very professional. The pop of lime green color adds a refreshing look to the overall appearance.

So the product claims to help exfoliate skin to remove the dead skin in a non-abrasive manner. It's mild that the product is also recommended for sensitive skin (for all skin types actually). As it exfoliates, it promises to keep the skin moisturized because of the AHA Fruit Complex leaving your skin smooth and soft.

The product looks/is a clear gel that is mildly lime-scented.

When massaged on skin, it becomes a bit watery and then you'll feel like there are clumps forming while you massage the product on skin. See the photo below.

See those whitish clumps on my skin? That's the result after I massaged the peeling gel. The clumps, I believe, is a mixture of the product and the dead skin it removed from my skin. I use it on dry skin (make sure to cleanse first then dry face) and massage it, then rinse it off. 

Afterwards, my skin does feel smoother. And even though it got rid of some of the outermost area of my skin and excess sebum, my skin doesn't feel dry. After this, I continue with my usual skin routine (serums, moisturizers, etc.).

I use it at least twice a week. I like that it exfoliates my face in a way that the areas that are flaky (from using acids to dry active acne) are gone. However, I still do use some face scrubs every now and then if I need extra exfoliating especially on the areas that I usually put my acne medication.

Like I've mentioned earlier, I've been using this for more than a month and I'm completely satisfied with its performance. I didn't feel dryness or any irritation and it does its job very well. I would recommend the product for you to try, and it doesn't hurt that it's quite affordable.

And that's my review of iUNIK Lime Moisture Mild Peeling Gel. Let me know what you think about this peeling gel and stay tuned for my next iUnik product review—their Rose Galactomyces Synergy Serum!
