If you have been following my instagram for awhile, I believe you must have picked up on the fact that I – One, love my AHA & BHA exfoliants, Two, love my peeling products, and Three, boldly proclaimed that I have to thank the Innisfree Green Barley Peeling product (specifically the Overnight Peeling Mask) to keep my complexion even and radiant. So it is after a pretty long period that I am finally getting to penning down the review proper for these Green Barley Peeling products today. I hope you enjoy reading these reviews as much as I have enjoyed using these products. Who knows, maybe after reading this, you might just want to get your hands on either one of these too!

First, a little info-visual from the brand:

According to the brand, Innisfree Green Barley Overnight Peeling Mask is/has:

  • A fast and self-peeling mask that work its magic when left overnight. Apply a thicker layer over troubled areas for targeted yet delicate care
  • Contains AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid), namely Glycolic acid (AHA) and Salicylic acid (BHA) for skin turnover boost
  • Contains Green barley and other natural AHAs for effective dead skin cells management
  • Protein- and Cellulose-rich Green barley extract helps to retain moisture and hydrates the skin as the peeling agent works overnight
  • Overnight treatment: At night, after basic skin care, apply an adequate amount over the skin, avoiding the eye and lip area. The AHA and BHA in the mask will work to promote a healthy skin turnover, improve moisture retention, unclog pores, reduce inflammation and in a way, speed up the skin healing process. Other ingredients such as Glycerin and extracts of Barley seed, Rice, Tangerine peel, Orchid, Green tea, and Prickly pear, helps to keep the skin hydrated, supple and healthy.

The story of Innisfree’s Green barley:

  • The fermented Green barley extract from Jeju Gapado island consists of 3 kinds of AHA which provides outstanding dead skin cell care
  • The Green barley plant grows in the nutrients-rich soil native to the island of Jeju, thus nutrients from the Green barley is comparably more than that of the regular kind, specifically protein and cellulose.

Below is my experience with the Innisfree Green Barley Peeling Duo (Overnight Peeling Mask & Gommage Peeling Mask):

Finally, the more important factor – the product’s pH màn chơi

(According to this non-professional pH testing strip, the Overnight Peeling Mask sits at the range of 4~5, which is good because it is going to be left on the skin overnight and you do not want something too acidic or alkaline)

(According to this non-professional pH testing strip, the Gommage Peeling Mask is in the range of 5~6, okay for something which you will be washing it away and not leaving on the skin)

Try-out period : Twice a week for the Overnight Peeling Mask and once a week for the Gommage Peeling Mask; both for a period of 4 months since purchase Personal take : Remember how i constantly emphasized and repeatedly mentioning how much I love my chemical exfoliants, my AHA and BHA, and peels? Well, I found the perfect at-home solution that checked all the boxes! Granted, these at-home chemical exfoliants would never give you the kind of astonishing results you’d normally achieve from the dermatologist clinics. But I feel that by including these into my skin care regime, it has helped maintain that glow, that smooth texture, that reduced occurrence of breakouts, and more. The inclusion of both products definitely helped in the long run and even improved my skin condition in between my chemical peels in the derma clinics.Even though I have mildly sensitive skin, I find that I can use both products easily without any drawbacks. In fact, I find that the Overnight Peeling Mask is pretty hydrating even with the inclusion of Glycolic acid and Salicylic acid. In the duration of using the Overnight Peeling Mask, never have my skin ever once peeled (physically) nor dry patches surfacing. I can always depend on the mask to help condition my complexion the night before an sự kiện, and for me to look my best – cushion foundation applied or not. Bravo!

As for the Gommage Peeling Mask, I use it as a weekly physical exfoliator. It has the cellulose in it that you roll over the skin and feel it clumping up. As the cellulose began to clump together, so sánh will the dirt and debris onto the cellulose themselves. Easy peasy! Similar to other peeling gels out there, once you rinse away the clumps, you will definitely see a clearer, cleaner and brighter complexion right away. That, I believe, is a given. What I also lượt thích to want to believe is that when the Gommage Peeling Mask is left on the skin for that recommended 3 mins, the AHA and BHA in the product will work its magic on and underneath the skin layer gently yet sufficiently (at least for an at-home use product).

So, you want to know how I achieved the glow on my skin? Well, now you do! I have been using the Innisfree Green Barley Peeling Duo for about 4/5 months now and I can say that it really does make a difference to my complexion. However, this is NO magical potion. You will still get the pimples every now and then from various causes, but from my experience of using the peeling duo, pimples does heal so sánh much more quicker with most barely leaving any marks at all.

Will i recommend it? : YES! Absolutely! Get it if you see your local Innisfree stores carrying it, or your favorite trực tuyến e-tailer if your Innisfree does not
