L'egere Purifying BB Facial Peeling Gel

I haven't seen or read any reviews about any L'egere products besides their White Multi BB Cream. Despite the lack of reviews, seeing as this brand is pretty well praised in Taiwan I decided to order a few of their products. Today I'll be talking about their Purifying BB Facial Peeling Gel.

For size reference.

Price: 20USD at Imomoko
Made In: Japan
How much do I use? 1 Pump about 1-2 times a week
Amount: 140g
What it is: Facial Peeling Gel (Gentle Exfoliator)
Claims: Contains AHA & Hyaluronic Acid to help lighten the skin, deep cleanse your pores of dirt, perspiration and oils. It removes dead cells that inhibit the natural process of cell renewal, leaving skin clean and glowing. Peeling Gel stimulates cell activity, revitalizes and prepares skin to receive nourishing moisturizers. (On the box)
Suitable For: All Skin Types
Warnings: Do not use on irritated skin
Would I recommend? Definitely

The box that it comes in states that not only can you use this on your face, you can use it on your elbows, knees and ankles - areas that tend to get dark and need more attention when it comes to lightening and/or exfoliating. I really like how this product is very multipurpose. About 1 to 1 1/2 pumps is more than enough for you face. If you're going to take it to the neck area, 2 pumps is enough. I'm going to briefly compare this to Cure's Natural Aqua Gel, a really popular gentle exfoliant in Asia.
CURE (90% Water)
Water Glycerin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate, Acrylate Crosspolymer, Dicocodimonium Chloride, Steartrimonium Bromide, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract, Gingko Biloba Extract, Rosemary Leaf Extract, Butylene Glycol

Water, Glycerin, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Dicocodimonium Chloride, Steartrimonium Bromide, Dipropylene Glycol, Citric Acid, Malic Acid, Papain, Dextrin, Sodium Hyaluronate, Isopropyl Alcohol, Cirtus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Methylparaben

Feel & Texture: Textures are the same with both - they come out as a gel and as you massage onto the skin, it starts to emulsify and the buildup you see in the picture above is the dead skin. When I use Cure, its really like just massaging water onto the skin. With the L'egere, you actually feel it getting into your pores and cleaning out the dirt, which I like.

Cure and L'egere both make my skin feel softer and smoother after every use. The only difference they have is that L'egere helps brighten my skin better than Cure does and I think its because L'egere contains AHA and Cure doesn't. I love both products but price wise, L'egere is much cheaper than Cure - L'egere is only 20USD while Cure can range from 30-40USD but Cure has a bigger bottle (250g) so I guess its how you see it. L'egere doesn't have an expiration date, but Cure is recommended to use within 1 year due to the nature of the ingredients (its color, fragrance, and preservative free).

Verdict: I prefer L'egere over Cure.
I would only use Cure if I have acne problems as its more gentle and I don't have to worry about irritating it in any way.

  1. thanks for the review! this def seems like an interesting product, haven't seen much legere reviews besides their bb creams either!

  2. so this is like the laneige strawberry yoghurt peeling gel, which i do love. have u tried that? i've had mine for a year and i noticed it was smelling bad... i guess it's due to the absence of preservative. which is a bummer cos i still have about half the tube left in it! :( i might try this legere one. thanks for the great review!

  3. I've never heard the brand before!! Thanks for sharing :) and yeah I agree with you about people who gain weight everywhere else but their face, it looks so weird!

  4. amynaree: Yup, hope it helps! You have no idea how long I spent looking for a L'egere review and was disappointed everytime, lol.

    Ee Von: I would think so? I haven't it though. It looks like a nice peeling gel from what I hear! I'm going to buy maybe later on this month just to compare it!

  5. I haven't heard of that brand either. Thank you for letting me know :)
    I think Asian cosmetics are so good! So far I've liked everything I've tried.

  6. Thanks for the review Dee! I'll have this product at the back of my head next time I shop at imomoko! :)

    Btw, why does it not work for you... @_@ It does for me. It shows up on my Blogger feed. :x Try deleting me and adding me again? x___x

  7. Kasia: I think most Asian brands are far way more ahead than western brands. I'm really loving almost everything I've tried too!

    Iris: It works now! I had to delete you like 3-4 times until it finally worked for me, lol. I hope it works well for you dear<3

  8. Thanks for the review! I've been curious about Cure, but after your review, i might give L'egere a try too :)

  9. I've never heard the brand before!! Thanks for sharing :i guess it's due to the absence of preservative. which is a bummer cos i still have about half the tube left in it! :( i might try this legere one. thanks for the great review!

  10. I also love L'egere Purifying BB Facial Peeling Gel. Leaves my skin smooth and supple!

  11. I wore a lot of make up and sometimes I get break out even after a day as I have sensitive skin. I've been using L'egere PBBFPG for quite some time now (preferably after removing heavy make up) and I agree the dead skin cells build up after applying is terrific. Love the review.
