Below is the back of the flyer which includes the instruction of usage:

How to use: 

From the name, you already know that it is gel like since it is a gel.
But it turns really watery like really fast especially on application.

I have no idea if it's just me or what but I don't know how to describe the smell. Maybe a slight scent of acid? But you can;t smell the acidic smell when you put it on your face. Only when you sniff it from the sample sachet which was what I did. Sorry if my description is wrong. 


Used on face and it is really so so gentle! I felt that my face was so smooth & soft after rinsing off with water. It is so gentle that it didn't hurt my pimples or anything. Know that painful and stinging pain when you use scrubs and all? Well, since this gel is clearly so gentle, it didn't hurt me one bit. I have acne prone and also considered a lil sensitive kind of skin and this works well with my skin.

Know that rough and scaly skin on your elbow? After using this gel, my elbow felt smooth and soft to touch. You can't actually see the effects but you can definitely feel it. 

*Sorry, I don't know how to take pics of elbows. The angle & all....I just can't. Sorry!*

My knees never felt rough so I can't comment on this. I do know that my knees are of darker skin tone than other parts of my legs but this gel doesn't lighten the colour at all. No feedback on the knees part. 

I actually don't see any obvious effect.

See that rough patch in the middle of my knee? It kinda turned from scaly looking to non scaly looking.

It definitely suits sensitive & acne prone skin people such as myself. But would I repurchase? I would go with 50/50. Why? Simply because RM69 for a 100ml bottle is quite pricey to me. And yes, I am a cheapskate. I really like it but not to the extend of wanting it so bad.
