Formula review

See a mistake?
What does the product description say?
"Boasting more effective exfoliating benefits, SPA Gommage Gel now contains a higher dose of skin-refreshing herbs and fruit extracts."
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.

What does the product description say?
"Its host of moisturizing and conditioning ingredients leave skin feeling soft, supple and radiant."
WIMJ summary

Does not contain the most effective ingredients for moisturization. The emollients (olea europaea fruit oil) can help soften the upper layer of the skin. Keep in mind though that this product lacks humectants that attract water. You might want to use a separate product with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin in addition (use before this product for the best results).
