Ginvera Green Tea Whitening Marvel Gel


This product is like no exfoliator I've used before, think about the exfoliators that you use - harsh astringent scent, grainy texture, little balls that pop when rubbed over the skin and a burning sensation when you've washed it off? With the Ginvera Marvel Gel there are none of these characteristics, the product is possibly the best exfoliator I've ever used and it's just a thick green gel. 

It's incredibly gentle and is completely pain free, you just massage the gel into your dry face for about a minute until it starts to ball up and you get little bits all over your face - these bits are actually all of the dirt/oil bits that have been collecting in your pores along with dead skin cells - lovely. You then rinse the product off with warm water and your face feels smooth, looks more radiant and is matte in texture. Using the product is quite refreshing in the mornings as it smells so nice, it's also nice to rub the cool gel into your face - definitely wakes you up! 

The Marvel Gel leaves your face in perfect condition for applying make-up, and I think it does a pretty good job at keeping my face matte all day - just like a primer. When I've been using this product daily I've noticed a difference in my skin, I tend to be less oily and I don't get as many blackheads as I used to. If I don't use the product for a few days I notice that my skin does change back to it's old ways.

I don't think I will ever use a traditional 'grainy' exfoliator again, this does such a good job of clearing my pores out in a pain-free, gentle way that I'll never go back!

You can purchase the Marvel Gel from Harvey Nichols for £22 or from this website.

  1. This looks like an amazing product. I've tried Ginvera BB Cream and it was absolutely AMAZING! I got it as a sample and never got round to ordering anymore, but it was the best thing I've ever used. This looks really good too, its just the price tag that puts me off really :/

    Really good review! :))

  2. I loveddd this too, the price tag is a shame though ):

  3. I just had a tiny sample of this unfortunately... So can't really say if worked for me but I liked using it. Xx

  4. this stuff sounds amazing! i really want to give it a go. i think the price is quite reasonable too xx

  5. Sounds like a great product. I have bought a few samples of this from Ebay to try, I am excited as Ive heard great things about it

  6. Ooh, this product sounds really interesting - I'd be slightly worried about using it as I have quite bad 'problem skin', and it can tend to look red and blotchy, but I'd definitely be tempted if it weren't for the price tag xx

  7. I have been wanting to try this for ages! It's the price that puts me off but I know I will probably end up buying anyway! xx

  8. Oh It's seems nice product I wish to buy it & check it out !

  9. This looks brill, I like the idea of it having Green Tea as an active ingredient. It sounds very similar to products by greenwood organics - their exfoliator is also really smooth, I love it, none of the grainy astringent stuff you are referring to. You should review some for them, they might send you some free samples! :)

  10. It's a great product yes. Am an asian and I get whiteheads on my nose often. Used it twice a week. It improves the pores too!! (I have oily skin)
