My Skin Mentor Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel!

Press Sample


Today I want to tell you about a fabulous skincare product I discovered at CosmoProf. My Skin Mentor Dr. G is a Korean skincare brand by Dr. Gun Y. Ahn, a division of Gowoonsesang. Created by Dr. Gun Ahn, My Skin Mentor Dr. G was started out of a deep love for skin health. As a child, Dr. G experienced severe facial burns, which caused him to become interested in skin and its health. As a result of this interested, Dr. G went into dermatology, quickly becoming well-known throughout Korea for his approach to skin rejuvenation and skin pathologies.

For over 14 years, My Skin Mentor Dr. G has delivered science-backed skin solutions for healthy and happy skin. Developed by Korean dermatologists and sold in 17 countries worldwide, My Skin Mentor Dr. G is a brand you can trust, especially if you have sensitive skin!

The brand is new to me and I’ve been using the Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel ($28) twice a week for about a month now and I can’t wait to share it with you! One of the most important things we can do is to exfoliate our skin. Turning over dead skin cells is essential to revealing younger looking skin making this ideal for us over 40 gals!

This Vitamin infused peeling gel brightens and clarifies skin by eliminating dead skin cells. It contains natural cellulose and skin-loving ingredients that make it suitable for even sensitive skin. It gently removes dead, flaky skin while nourishing with moisture-locking ingredients such as hollyhock and trehalose.

After cleansing, apply the gel over your entire face, avoiding the eyes and lips. This milky exfoliating gel morphs into a peel as you massage it into your skin, gently lifting away dead skin and dirt. Massage into skin using clean fingertips for 1-2 minutes until the gel balls up as it grabs onto the dead cells and impurities on the skin, then thoroughly rinse off.

It’s perfect for my sensitive skin. I was amazed at how the dry patches around my nose and under my upper lip immediately vanished! My skin feels silky smooth and it looks bright, clear and moisturized. The gel does NOT leave your skin feeling tight or irritated. I keep it in the shower and use it twice a week then follow with my new favorite moisturizer, LaFlore Probiotic Daily Defense Moisturizer. I love that I don’t have to use harsh exfoliating beads or acids!

Bottom Line: the Dr. G Brightening Peeling Gel is a quick and easy way to recapture that youthful glow. I’ve tried another similar product from The Body Shop, but I find this one works much better. Highly recommended especially for over 40 gals!
