Product rave-GINVERA Green Tea whitening marvel gel.

I was very kindly sent this product (Along with the BB cream, which I also love) and when I first got this I was a little unsure due to the fact it says it's "whitening" and that it's a blackhead remover, it just sounded a little odd and I have never seen a product like this before, so I didn't know what to expect.

My skin is the kind of skin that really needs help with it's cell turnover, so I use exfoliating products on a regular basis and  GINVERA say that dead skin is the main culprit of all skin issues, and claim the marvel gel reaches deep it to the pores to remove the dead skin that clogs up the pores and cause blackheads, which can lead to spots. Now, My skin is the kind of skin that tends to get little blackhead on my outer cheek area, but they tend to stay very small unless I give in and pick at them (which I do not advise, no matter how tempting it is!)  so I was really looking forward to using this.

You are meant to apply this on clean,dry skin and dot it all over your face, then rub it in (with dry fingers) for  a few minutes. What happens in those few minutes is pretty remarkable. The gel turns in to a kind of odd, crumbly texture (all I can compare it to is if you use CLARINS beauty flash balm and instead of smoothing it on to the skin you rub it in and it turns in to a crumbly,dry sort of texture) and it feel really satisfying, almost as if all the dead skin is rubbing off your face. The most amazing thing though, happens after you wash your face with warm water. My skin felt so smooth and soft, it was so clean and fresh looking, I was really  surprised.

I'm aware the hole concept of whitening products is a little controversial, but in this case I think the actual whitening effect is not noticeable at all, and I not am going to worry about it, I think it just has a brightening effect on the skin. The marvel gel claims to rub away blackhead painlessly, and give your skin a more refined  look, and I do agree it makes your skin look fabulous but i'm not 100% sold by "removes blackhead painlessly" don't get me wrong, there is no pain involved,but it didn't remove all my blackheads just yet. They recommend you use it daily, but I have been using it 3 times a week as I didn't want to overload my skin. 

The marvel gel is available here http://www.janiro.co.uk/Marvel-Gel.html, and costs £22, so it's not super cheap, but it's not pricey either and I honestly think that over all it's a lovely product, and I would be interested in trying out some more products who know, maybe my skin will end up looking as close to perfect as it can get!

Have any of you tried it? what do you think of the concept of a blackhead remover? 



  1. This sounds exactly like Gatineau 's Gomage, you massage this thick cream into your skin and watch it turn into a clear gel that rubs all the dead skin off your face. It's absolutely lovely for your skin and they recommend you follow it with a face mask which leaves your skin looking amazing! I highly recommend it and I think it's about £16 on QVC xx

    1. Oh sounds good. i'll look into it! xx
