"This hypoallergenic peeling gel contains natural enzymes from apricot and apple to gently remove dead skin cells and cleanse clogged pores."
WIMJ summary

This product does not contain effective exfoliating ingredients. It might be able to deliver physical exfoliation, that is scrub off some of the dead cells on the surface of the skin. We do not recommend physical exfoliation, because it is not uniform (some bits of skin can get exfoliated too much while others not at all). It can also traumatize the skin and aggrevate acne and other skin conditions.

"Moisturizing peeling gel free of scrub particles exfoliates gently without causing skin irritation Contains natural plum enzyme, a skin brightening ingredient commonly used by Korean women during the Joseon Dynasty Plum blossom and plum fruit contain citric acid, vitamins and various minerals including calcium that are essential for improving skin texture and complexion Infused with apple extract containing organic acid and Vitamin C to provide deep hydration How to Use."
WIMJ summary

This product contains good ingredients to attract water to the upper layer of the skin. These ingredients are called "humectants": glycerin, butylene glycol.

When humectants are on the surface of the skin, they “pull in” the moisture from the outside environment, or from within deeper layers of the skin. If the air is dry, humectants can speed up the moisture loss from the skin. This is why it is a good idea to use another product on top of this one to help "seal in" the moisture (look for ingredients like dimethicone, squalane, oils and butters).
