Description

Marvel Gel is a genius way to banish even the most stubborn whiteheads, blackheads and blemishes without aggravating sensitive skin. This mild, exfoliating gel-mask helps break up and remove the top layer of dead epidermis cells, make up residue and ingrained impurities. Enriched with green tea extract, Ginvera's anti-oxidant effect tackles free radicals and simulates the skin's metabolism making it brighter. This face mask refines pores and evens out skin tone, lightening age spots and freckles
Why it's cult
Ginvera Marvel Gel is the most popular blackhead treatment in Asia where skin quality is king. It is a very different exfoliant and extractor because there are no abrasive grains, it is gentle enough to use on sensitive, blemish-prone skin but with noticeable results after just one use. The fact that it also has anti-ageing effects means that this mask is a great answer to the all-too-common problem of adult acne.

Directions

With this product a little goes a long way, so only apply a small amount of the gel evenly to cleansed, dry skin and massage gently with your fingertips for a minute, or until the gel is dry (it drys to a slightly flaky paste). Rinse with plenty of water. Use in the evening every one or two days depending on how congested your skin is.

Summary
I wouldn't really say that this is much of an exfoliant but then again it' sometimes nice to have a very mild product. The gel is a light green colour and you use a small amount on dry skin. I could barely detect any scent which could be a benefit if you're not keen on strong scents. It feels nice enough on the skin but more as a cleanser than an exfoliant.

Summary
I received a sample of this gel along with the BB cream of the same range. As this was only a small sample with approximately 4 treatments in it I cannot full comment on long term use. However I was very impressed with this seemingly non descript gel. The scent is pleasant and fresh and the gel is a semi, yellow clear light formula. On direction I applied this all over my face, avoiding the eyes and then gently massaged the product. Almost immediately the gel begins to dry and it forms flakes which is partly product and partly dirt and dead skin cells. The flakes were discoloured which gave me proof that it was removing impurities during the treatment. I removed the flakes with a damp warm cloth and my skin was instantly radiant and smooth without any redness or irritation that you can suffer from grain exfoliators. My pores were diminished and the skin tightened but not dry. After a few treatments most of my blackheads had been dissolved but the stubborn ones remained. I think this is an excellent exfoliator that works remarkably efficiently without the normal scrubbing and rubbing. This gel is supposed to work on diminishing pigmentation marks and age spots but sadly I did not have a long enough trial to support this claim. With the Green Tea extracts which are naturally detoxifying and calming on the skin I would highly recommend this for those with sensitive skin. A fantastic product which I will strongly consider purchasing
