On this week’s Scrubbing Diaries, I bring you a special guest for this review as the said guest has more blackheads than I do (no offence, darling) and I thought it would be best to present you lovely readers with photos that shows results. =)
I purchased the Ginvera Marvel Gel while out with Hanny . Yes, going out with a blogger friend can do quite a lot of damage to your wallet, haha! She raved about this product and I can see why!
Rather gory up-close nose shots coming up so please overlook this post if you can’t stomach such photos!
So Ginvera claims to eliminate all blackheads with the tagline ‘Zero Blackheads in 1 Step’ together with the ’10 Benefits of Whitening Marvel Gel’, as seen on the back of the 60ml tube:
1. Rubs away deep layers of dead skin cells
2. Rubs away blackheads painlessly
3. Contracts pores for refined skin (As dead skin cells have been cleared from pores)
4. Lightens black spots, freckles and scars
5. Removes oil seeds
6. Regulates sebum secretion to prevent pimples
7. Brightens dull complexion
8. Changes dark, rough skin to smooth skin
9. Whitens skin as it gives way to new born skin
10. Enhances quick absorption of skin care products
Whoa, that’s quite a lot of promises! Let’s get on to see if this product actually lives up to its claim!
This is a rather unique product as you need to apply it onto dry skin, like this:
Spread it out over your face, or problem areas:
Here’s the fun bit. Start massaging / rubbing the product into your skin and before you know it, little bits of fluff will surface, as though your blackheads have been rubbed off!
After you’re done rubbing your face dry (literally, you can feel all the gel has turned into bits and there’s nothing more to rub other than the bits of fluff you’ve gathered from rubbing your face), rinse and let’s admire the results!!
This is no miracle product, so do not expect all your blackheads to disappear just after one use! The blackheads certainly didn’t disappear but the skin is noticeably smoother and the pores seem smaller too! I believe this product will be extremely effective with frequent use and will update this section once my lovely friend’s used it a little more!
I hope the photos didn’t put any of you off! =)
