1, Paula’s Choice Ingredient Dictionary  

A GREAT source to look up any ingredient you are not familiar with. A basic yet efficient cosmetics ingredient dictionary to clear up doubts. I have to say, Paula’s choice as a brand has few products work for me, but it provides the most educational free information to general public. I’m no where near an ingredient expect, but I’d like to be informed, I’d like to know what really works in my skincare products. This online dictionary works perfectly.

Soko Glam is an online retailer specializes in Korean cosmetics products, brands authorized online retailer. I’ve bought from this site twice, so far so good. Ships fast, replies my email the next day. Free shipping over $35. Return policy: Email them to issue an refund. Shipping fee non refundable. A lot Korean cosmetics only available on this site. I found this site when I was searching for palaces to buy Bio-peel Wine.

5,Trick: For pads products, seal them tightly, turn products upside down once a while will keep pads moist evenly.


1,NEOGEN DERMALOGY Canadian Clay Pore Cleanser $27/120g/4.2oz 

I purchased it from, a clay cleanser also double as a clay mask. 



Packaging& Storage: Not the best! It’s an ordinary open jar came with 3 layers of lids: a moist cotton pad stays right on top of product itself, an extra plastic lid, the actually jar lid. Phew…

How to seal it: Dig up product with a tool of your choice, even out surface, seal it with the Moist Cotton Pad to keep product air tight and moist,  put on the plastic lid, cover up the jar lid at last.The moist pad is the key to this clay cleanser. It has to stay tightly close to the actual product, otherwise clay underneath will response to air in a short amount of time, starting bubbling. Once it happens, this cleanser won’t bubble on face anymore.

Note: I took a sample in local Sephora store first, it was recommend by a BA when I was asking sample for Neogen Bio peel, I used up 2 samples she made for me then bought the full size. The samples didn’t bubble, properly because they didn’t seal it carefully.


Texture: Very interesting. Almost “mousse” like. Once it touches skin, about 30 seconds later  it will start to bubble on surface, nicely, evenly, very airy. Skin won’t feel the “bubbling process”, only eyes can tell. It’s very easy to completely rise off, and NOT DRY at all. After wash, water stays on skin like there’s some kind oil remaining, but it doesn’t feel oily at all.

How I use it: I like to use it in the night more than use it in the morning. As a good, strong “wash everything off” cleanser.  Apply product evenly on face for 1 layer, leave it on for 2- 3 minutes, rise it off. It claims can be used as a makeup remover. I’ve tried this way, not bad, in fact I enjoy to use it as a lazy day one step cleanser.  It does remover everything besides eye makeup, I’m not comfortable to use a clay cleanser around eye area. No matter what cleanser I’m using, I always use Bioderma micellar water to do a final check up, in this case no remaining came off.

Result: 1, It’s a good strong cleanser which I can trust.

2, I do feel it cleanse Pores. I can see white heads pop out after wash, I can see blackheads around nose area go lighter.

3, I recommend this clay cleanser, fun to use too~

Similar product comparison:

Besides they are both clay cleanser, textures, results are no where near close…

Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Daily Cleanser $22.5/5oz. 

Kiehl’s clay cleanser doesn’t bubble, a regular clay cleanser.I hated clay cleanser because of this product, I haven’t purchased any clay cleanser in the past 3 years because of this product. It felt clean at first, but after only one week, my skin was completely dried out with dry patches, peels all over entire face, it took me over a months to balance it back. I don’t recommend it at all.

NEOGEN DERMALOGY BIO-PEEL GAUZE PEELING WINE $27/30 single-use, only available on Soko Glam.

Active ingredients: Tartaric Acid, Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid.

It has fragrance and plant alcohol.


Packaging&storage: Open Jar. I’ve had it almost 2 months, with 2-3 pads per week, went through about half, remaining products are still moist and effective.

Texture: It’s an AHA exfoliating pads product. A dual texture thick cotton pad which almost feel like fabric, my fingers are quite chubby, my ring size is 8. I can fit in 2 fingers comfortably.

Youtube video: How to use bio-peel pads Neogen – NEO I SPOTLIGHT How to use Bio-peel Gauze Peeling

How I use it: Pick up one pad with  a clean tweezer. 2-3 times a week, as an AHA treatment. Usually before night time brushing teeth, I apply a bio-peel pad first, leave it on, brush teeth, then rise it off.

Neogen the brand itslef suggests to use criss-crossed(rough) side first then quilted side(soft side), I’ve tried different ways, I don’t think which side to use first makes any difference to the result.

Trick: For pads products, Seal it tightly, turn product upside down once a while will keep pads moist evenly.

Results: I bought this product because I’m trying to stay away from acid treatment as much as possible, but still want to smooth out skin texture once a while. I notice 3 major results.

1, Smoothness. You can feel it already during rising process.

2, It doesn’t dry out my skin. No tight feeling, No dry patches.

3, It helps with pimples, acnes, calms down the “anger” of them. A lot researches show the best acid treatment for acne skin is BHA, for some reason, AHA products always work for me way better. This product proves that again. It clams down small pimples, makes bigger ones pop the next morning. I love it! I’ve decide I will repurchase it again.

I recommend it!



It also has fragrance and plant alcohol.fullsizeoutput_13

Texture:A dual texture thick cotton pad which almost feel like fabric

How I use it: Pick up one pad with  a clean tweezer. Plan to use it 2-3 times a week, Because I only had it for 1 week.

Results: 1, smooth out skin texture nice.

2, wipes off make up residue, dead skin. BTW, if anything wipes off your make up residue after you make up removing routine, it’s best to update a new routine to strong the game.

1,I love Bio-peel wine, so I went to local Sephora store asking for samples of Bio-peel lemon, and green tea, 2 pads per products. they all smoothed out skin texture nicely.

2, Compare to Bio-peel Wine, I’ve checked ingredient list of Bio-peel Green tea, there’s no AHA ingredients in it. But it does have some good calming and  antioxidant  ingredients

Check Bio-peel green tea  ingredients list here: BIO-PEEL GAUZE PEELING

3, The last picture is what I wiped off frommy elbow.fullsizeoutput_14


I thought I would go through Wine quicker than green tea. My husband who never cares about skin care products asked me “when will you restock it?”

Thoughts after empty jar:

1, Green tea version doesn’t have strong fragrance compare to wine version, which I like. It does great job taking away dead skin cell and gently exfoliating. It also take away any foundation leftover that I didn’t get off after micellar water, very little but noticeable.

2, I notice bumpy acne scars became smooth and lighten, not as fast as a VC serum, but it does fading out acne scars.

3, I will repurchase it once I finish wine version, repurchase them both.
