Marvellous Marvel Gel by Ginvera

Hi Guys!

In my quest for the perfect and flawless, "airbrushed" complexion I've been trying out lots of new skincare products and one which I have been really impressed by so far is Ginvera's Marvel Gel.


Ginvera is a brand from Singapore which was established in 1985. I've recently been trying out some products from their Green Tea Whitening series - you can check out a previous review of the Ginvera BB Cream here.


The Ginvera Marvel Gel has been hailed as a "hero product" which claims "zero blackheads in one step" - sounds great doesn't it? I was however, as always, skeptical of such amazing claims.

Now for the science bit (I've always wanted to say that!)

Ginvera Green Tea Whitening series, as the name suggests, contains Green Tea extract as its main ingredient. Green Tea extract is a strong anti-oxidant that delays the skin’s ageing process and also reduces the damage from sun’s rays. Besides the new packaging, the new and improved Ginvera Green Tea Whitening series is also now enriched with Korean soybean for enhanced whitening of the skin. This unique Korean soybean is fermented with Bacillus Subtilis which will produce Cellplus+ (a soft liquid product that consist plenty of amino acids) which has strong moisturizing and whitening properties. With Green Tea extract and Korean soybean, the newly formulated Ginvera Green Tea Whitening series serves to restore skin’s clarity with its natural ingredients. 


Ginseng  
Enhances cell renewal process while providing hydration and nourishment to brighten dull skin.  

Pomelo Extract  
Richer in Vitamin C content than other fruits, Pomelo Extract provides superior protection from free radical damage and enhanced whitening effect. 

Pearl Power 
Well known for its whitening and nourishing properties. Pearl powder helps to lighten dark spots and blemishes, renew skin cells and correct damages to skin by UV rays. It also leaves a sheer, radiant glow on skin. 

Biogel  
Biogel enhances absorption of skincare nutrients into skin cells. 

Marvel Gel:

The Marvel Gel is a chemical exfoliator - which means it doesn't contain the coarse beads / grit that you're probably used to with regular exfoliators on the market. The gel itself is silky smooth and doesn't have the rough texture that you may be expecting when you hear the word "exfoliator" so it's non-abrasive.


Ginvera Green Tea Marvel Gel works by specifically targeting the cornified skin layer, dissolving and removing the dead skin cells on the top most epidermis layer. This gentle yet effective exfoliating action zeros-out blackheads thoroughly and painlessly and helps remove deep layers of dead skin. When the dead skin barrier is removed, the new skin underneath is revealed, allowing your skin’s healthy radiance to glow from within. It helps prevent pimples and controls oil secretion to help you stay shine-free the whole day!

As a gal with seriously dry skin which can be on the sensitive side I was delighted to come across this smooth, gentle and silky gel - no more scrubbing my skin to within an inch of it's life leaving it red, sore and unsightly in my bid to rid it of all it's flakiness. Hurrah!

Packaging:





The Marvel Gel comes in a handy squeezable green tube at a very generous size of 60ml.

To compare the Marvel Gel with the BB Cream also by Ginvera which comes in at 25ml.

I've been using this Marvel Gel for over a week now and I've already noticed a good reduction in the appearance of blackheads around my nose. The gel is very cooling and refreshing on the skin and it creates a gentle foaming / lathering action when you rub it into your skin.

I love the fact that this is such a gentle exfoliator - there's no scrubbing required and it won't leave your skin irritated after assaulting it with rough grains and granules.



After rubbing the gel into your skin you can see the dead cells simply "flaking" off before your very eyes - you can see the dead skin flakes once you're finished.

I've found that my skin feels lovely and refreshed after using it, it just feels "really clean"

It leaves my skin glowing and silky soft and smooth, making a great base before applying your foundation.


Ingredients:
Deionised Water, Carbomer, Angelica Archangelica Extract, Ginseng Extract, Lycium (Goji Berry) Extract, Cyclomethicone, Dimethicone, Green Tea Extract, Fragrance, Aloe Vera Extract, Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Methyl Paraben, Menthol, Organic Geranium.




I've been using the Marvel Gel in conjunction with the Ginvera Green Tea Nude Cover BB Cream and i've found that the two products work flawlessy together to give you a natural "your skin but better" look. The two products really do work together to deliver a flawless finish.

You can purchase the two products together at a discount from Janiro.co.uk where I got my Ginvera products from for just £36 - that's a saving of £6 if you were to buy them separately.

If you're thinking of investing in a BB Cream, I would highly recommend the Green Tea BB Cream by Ginvera and the Marvel Gel alongside it. You only need a small amount of product from each to get results, so I imagine they will last a long time.
