Since the main point of the product is to get rid of dead skin, i decided to use it on the part of my body with the most dead skin.... my feet!!

My feet are really badly maintained, so I wouldn't be surprised if you guys were grossed out by the following images. Don't stop reading my blog after this okay T_T.

Here comes... the horrifying BEFORE picture of my big toe!!

Don't mind the dust (my room's pretty dusty esp when I'm using the photography stuff), but have you seen a more badly maintained toe than mine?? What's on the top right is not dust but DEAD SKIN *stabs self repeatedly*

So... I dispensed some of Amethystory's Mineral Aqua Gel to gently exfoliate it.

The Mineral Aqua Gel is a milky liquid. Too liquidy for my liking since i noticed that it kept dripping.

White particles appeared as I massaged it. This is the 'dead skin' that's removed from my skin!


Now on my heel!


Skin feels soft and tender, and the amount of dead skin did reduce!

Packaging: 5/5
It's a thin purple bottle with a pump (and clip). What's not to love?

Texture: 3.5/5
The liquidy texture makes it easier for me to glide it onto my skin to remove dead skin, but it is really drip-y and in general, too liquidy for my liking.

Effectiveness: 4.5/5
It did remove my dead skin not only on my face, but also on my body (can use it on your knees and elbows too!) which leaves it soft and smooth.

After-feel: 3/5
The only thing i didn't like about the after-feel is that it feels weird. Not dry, but a little oily. Somewhat like drying-but-oily feel. Sounds weird aye??

Pricing: 3.5/5
Initially i wanted to give it a 2.5 because it costs $24.90 for 150ml (which is more expensive than Cure which costs $42 for 400ml, and Detclear which is $21.90 for 180ml). However, this comes in a smaller bottle which means that unlike Cure, you do not have to commit to a whole 400ml before trying other products or changing to other products.

Ease of use: 3.5/5
Unlike Detclear or Cure which you can just wash off with water, this product actually requires you to use a cleaner/soap to get rid of the after-feel that i didn't really like.

Overall: 3.5/5
A good try, and this might be what I'll repurchase if my favourite one is OOS. This still doesn't take the top spot from my favourite Detclear. I was actually expecting more from this, because this was supposed to be the star product. However, I was quite disappointed. That being said, you can always give it a try and see if you like it by redeeming a free sample here:

  1. The concept is similar to Cure ya? If you've tried that before, gow dyou think they compare?


  2. @Seri
    Yup, same concept of exfoliating gel. Hmm, i didn't really try cure before cause it was too big a bottle for me to commit to :/.
