Just over a month ago I received Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel. I was asked by the company themselves to test and review the product… as a beauty expert and product fan, I was naturally happy to oblige!
The packaging of this product is fresh and clean, and I like the colour of the tube too – again very fresh.
Overall, I am seriously impressed by this skin care product, after using it for just one week I already felt a massive difference in not only the texture of my skin, but it’s appearance too.
The aim of Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel is to eliminate blackheads by gently rubbing them away, it also claims to:
- Rub away deep layers of dead skin cells.
- Contract pores for refined skin (As dead skin cells have been cleared from the pores).
- Lighten black spots, freckles & scars.
- Remove oil seeds.
- Regulate sebum secretion to prevent pimples.
- Brighten dull complexion.
- Change dark, rough skin to smooth skin.
- Whiten skin as it gives way to new born skin.
- Enhance quick absorption of skin care products.
As a make-up artist, I am well aware that regularly removing dead skin cells through the use of exfoliation prevents breakouts and rough patchy skin. I have always advised that we do not over exfoliate, because it may lead to damage rather than good, and also can lead to an enhanced production of sebum thus producing more conjestion – leading to blackheads, whiteheads and greasier skin. However, Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel is so gentle to apply, that I really found benefit in using it once daily.
Initially, it is strange to get used to, because you apply it to dry skin in circular motions with your finger tips – you can literally feel your dead skin cells lifting from the surface. It reminds me of that feeling when you massage cream into your skin after being on a hot holiday and getting sunburnt and areas of skin start to rub away. As you massage the gel into your skin it forms little bits on the surface of your skin whilst rubbing away dead skin cells with it.
I cleanse only at night, and then use water in the morning, so that I don’t over cleanse and dry my skin out. I choose to cleanse at nighttime because we gather so much dirt from the air on our faces throughout the day, need to remove any make-up worn, plus our skin is most active at night and will really reap the benefits of being nourished.
If you think of the times you’ve had your hair washed at the hairdressers, they wash it twice – once to remove the surface dirt and the second to deep cleanse – now apply the same technique to your skin. I use the product once to remove make-up and the second to really deep cleanse.
To use Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel: use on a dry face with dry fingers. Use about a 5-pence size dot, and dot it onto your forehead, cheeks, chin, nose and neck. Massage the gel into your skin using circular motions for about one minute and rinse off with luke-warm water.
I would recommend doing this over a sink or towel, as the skin rubs away it tends to fall off the face!
The things I love most about this product are…
- The way in which it makes my skin feel incredibly soft after every use.
- The fact that it really has kept my skin clear.
- The bright, luminous appearance that it has left my skin with.
If you have sensitive skin, be sure to investigate the ingredients within the product further before using it, although a fantastic product, it does contain some synthetic ingredients.
I, myself am an advocate of all natural products, and for this reason will always research any synthetic ingredients used to ensure that they have been approved ‘safe to use’ by the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) Expert Panel. Because this product is an exfoliant, and it does contain synthetic ingredients, I would suggest using it for short periods at a time, whilst using it daily MAYBE harmless, I don’t recommend continuous exfoliation. I feel that all natural products have far more benefit over long periods of time. This is a great in-between product to give your skin a boost.
