Review: Shills Magic Bubble Peeling

Blair asked for the ingredients list for Shills Foam Esthe Pack, so I've updated the review post ("Review: Shills Foam Esthe Pack") with the ingredients list. Hope this helps! I'm having K-drama fever now, watching this. Image003copy The lead actor, Hyun Bin, is my favourite Korean actor by far: He has the cutest smile with dimples and he's really good at crying. I'm so distracted by K-drama that I didn't go to Tangs for the card-member preview sale but headed home right away, so that I could continue watching the show. Today's review: Shills Magic Bubble Peeling (RRP $23.90SG). There's a typo in the package! It's spelt "peeing" haha! This is about the only item in my Shills Haul that has details on the bottle instead of only on the box. Image001copy The ingredients: Image002copy This is what it claims to do:

"Fine ingredients penetrate deep into skin layers, to give you a whiten, moisturized, fresh and shiny new experience!

Adopting a unique enzyme-ceramic component technology, these moisture rich bubbles gently massages the skin to remove old surface dead skin. It gives you moisture rich & clean pores removing sebum clogs and preventing large pores. It reduces spots, pigmentation and improves the absorption of other skin nourishments. Suitable for sensitive skin. Removes rough dead skin to give you immediate smooth skin. Taking care of your skin has never been so easy. Allow your skin to restore its original luster and shine."

This product doesn't whiten as much as Shills Foam Esthe Pack, and it STINKS! It has a strong perfume smell. The foam is also so huge and stiff that when I rub it on my face, I feel it's too hard to control, and some foam inevitably got onto my eyes. Although I don't like the smell and texture, it does exfoliate and unclog my pores. When I rub the foam, it feels like the foam is dissolving the dead skin and I can feel flakes of what I think is dead skin rubbing off. My skin is smooth and clean after usage. It is also stated that it's suitable for sensitive skin. That said, I have dry skin with slightly oily nose and chin. So I can't tell if it will work well on oily skin. I probably will not buy this again due to the awful perfume smell and difficulty I have controlling the huge foam. I agree with Pinky's comment that over-exfoliation and AHA can trigger another allergy/sensitive skin reaction. So, I'm using only one product at a time, once a week for exfoliation and deep cleansing purpose. Hopefully this will minimise potential damage or reactions. For those who asked, Shills is a Made-in-Taiwan brand and can be purchased in Singapore at John Little Stardust and also online at Beauty Bistro. I heard they are also available at Sasa stores but I've not personally gone to Sasa to check. Shills products were reviewed in the popular Taiwanese Queen beauty talk show, hence it become quite popular in Singapore. Apparently is extremely cheap in Taiwan, and available in almost any drugstore there. © Copyright. All rights reserved.

hi blair, the shill foam is more like a liquid exfoliator. not really like a scrub because it doesn't have any scrub particles but it exfoliates the skin. you apply on wet skin and it is supposed to foam up, after rubbing for a while, then wash off. keke, we are all bad influence on each other's beauty blogs. :D
