Ever since I have been getting treatments done at Dr Ko Clinic, I have also been using their skincare prescribed to cater to my skin concern. One of them is Ko Dermacare Purifying Cleansing Gel.
‘Effectively breaks down grease stains from makeup (including eye area) and removes dead skin cells, leaving your skin refreshed and rejuvenated. Enriched with botanical extracts, this gel gently cleanses and conditions your skin without stripping the surface of its natural protective lipids.
Benefits Contains: Cucumber extract, ginkgo biloba extract.’
In order to dispense the gel, this bottle is made by plastic soft enough to press for it to squeeze some of the gel out.
Basically, the gel texture isn’t as thick as I thought it would be. Slightly thicker than those liquid cleansers. When I first dispense the gel, I accidentally dispense quite a lot out because I didn’t know it could be that runny. Although it’s gel, once it is combined with water, it can be foamed easily. The funny thing is I have followed the instruction from the bottle earlier which did no mention if I should use water to begin with until I get an internal information. I was struggling to use the gel cleanser from the earlier instruction because it turns into mucus texture as I rub it onto my face. Below would be the correct directions of use.
‘Wet face and neck, squeeze adequate amount of cleansing gel on palm and massage with circular movements, rinse with warm water thoroughly.’
I have been using this gel cleanser for a month now and here is the progress of my skin from the usage. My skin seems to be clearer every week or at least, it helped to maintain my skin. I did not experience any skin irritation from using this.
Here is a comparison of before and after. This cleanser kept my skin looking dewy and radiant.
This cleanser is not a bad cleanser but I would prefer the cleanser that provided to me earlier because it helped very much on controlling the sebum production as to compare with this. I believe this gel cleanser is mild because it is suitable for all skin types. However, this cleanser is a little mild since it wasn’t able to control as much sebum because I have noticed quite some blackheads over my nose and the shine after 2-3 hours from cleansing. I do feel it is squeaky clean right after cleansing. I have yet to experience any tightness and it removes makeup quite well but not entirely 100% because sometimes I could see the little smudges from the mascara.
