Review: VOV Daily Fresh Mini Pack Apple AHA Peeling Gel

This is a review for VOV Daily Fresh Mini Pack in Apple AHA Peeling Gel.


(This is my FAVORITE VOV mask!)

What it does:
(Since VOV doesn't have an English website, I couldn't find the claim for it.  I bought it because it claimed to have AHA and peeling properties)


Price: around 1100 Won each (less than $1) in Korea. VERY AFFORDABLE!

Scent: smells faintly of apple juice

Pros:
- Leaves my face VERY smooth
- I do not need to physically peel it off of my face
- Because I don't have to wait for it to dry to work, I can use it in the shower!
- Very cheap in Korea!  (I've seen these at VERY inflated prices on ebay!!!)
- I can get 2-3 uses out of each piece!

Cons:
- This stings slightly, which is to be expected of products with AHA.  If you have sensitive skin, don't try it!
- Not readily available in Japan (if you know of anywhere other than gmarket, please let me know!)

This was very different for me in terms of peeling masks.  Since I can't read the label, I guessed that I would spread it on my face, leave it to dry, and then peel it off.  When it dried, though, it was too thin to peel off!  I thought I had done something wrong and washed it off of my face... but when I did, I realized that my skin was very smooth!  The peeling had worked without me having to physically peel it off!!  I like this SO much better than other peeling masks because physically peeling stuff off of your skin can HURT!!


The mask itself is a gel-like consistency... which makes sense considering it's called a peeling gel!  I don't have anywhere I can store the half-opened pouch upright, so I transfer it to another container.




I'm really looking for somewhere I can buy these online. I can find them on Gmarket... I guess that's where I'll go!  If someone has a seller they recommend, please let me know!

  2. Great idea to store it in a separate container. :) Totally agree with you about peeling stuff off skin giving you the ouchies.

  3. This sounds really nice actually! I wonder how comparable it is to the Korres Yogurt mask. I love that one, but it is kind of inconvenient to wear it to sleep 2x a week.

  12. Hi, I am using this as well and coz I like a bit more products on my face - 1 sachet will yield 2 use.

    Instead of transfering into a container which is troublesome (IMO), I'd cut it across the top of the sachet, squeeze out suitable amount, fold back twice at the opening and clip or staple before popping into the fridge.
