An Icing Gel or refreshing gels might be a new thing to you. However, it’s beginning to rise in popularity in the K-Beauty world. Basically, because they give us this refreshing feeling every time. Stress away!
There are a lot of variations of these gels; mostly with different types of plant or fruit concentrates that come in each product.
Here I’ll be introducing one of the fruit variations that you surely would want to try.
Introducing the LadyKin’s Fresh Icing Gel Series. This Icing Gel series comes in three fruit flavors, Watermelon, Mango, and Strawberry.
Before I go and talk about each variant let us take a look at these three as a whole.
So as much as each fruit flavor has its own unique effect on our skin, there are common denominators that this three share. These icing gels promise to provide rich moisture and freshness to our skin, it soothes the stressed skin, and it can be used to remove skin irritation caused by sunburns. Also to soften skin and prevent unnecessary peeling. It’s very mild and gentle that it is great for sensitive skin.
It is free from possible harmful ingredients like parabens, mineral oils, synthetic coloring and benzophenone. And it is anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory and has anti-antioxidant properties. It is very safe and gentle that is great for acne-prone skin.
I personally like the refreshing feeling it gives to the skin. It definitely gives the skin a calming feeling which is best for those tiresome and stressful days. What I do is to keep them stored in the refrigerator to keep it chilled for a more refreshing effect.
You can actually use it for a lot of uses other than just for your face, it can be used for the hair as a gentle hair setter and even in other parts of your body as a calming gel for burns and even as a moisturizer for your rough skin. Also, other than using it for my face and neck, I usually use it for those red itchy spots that keep coming in and out of my skin. [I always have these rash tendencies you see; though I don’t know why and where I got them.] Also, I apply them to my knees and elbows. [can’t tell you exactly what effect it does to them but I just love the cold feeling it gives on these areas. hahahah]
You can use this icing gel as often as you want as a mask pack, where you can just wipe off after 15-20 minutes, or as an overnight pack where you just leave it on as you sleep.
As what I’ve said, it is very gentle and safe that you can actually use it daily if you want to. But if you don’t want to apply it to the whole of your face every day, then you can at least just apply them to you under eyes to prevent puffiness; I do that most of the time.
All three comes in these very cute Popsicle-like tubes with their corresponding fruit design on the covers. the popsicle-ish packaging actually is very interesting to me. It gives us this immediate impression that the product is indeed a very refreshing one. All three icing gels have this very sweet yet mild scent that goes with the fruit flavor it has. My personal favorite scent is the Mango, it’s not so sweet and not so overwhelming at the same time. The Watermelon has the lightest scent among the three and the Strawberry scent is kind of a bit on a step higher on the scent impact among three. But all in all, I think their scents are all lovely and not the irritating to the nose. So if you have a very sensitive nose, you need not worry about these three (unless there’s one type of scent you just can’t stand).
So how does these three differ from each other? Each flavor promises a bit different effect from the other.
Watermelon(relaxing); contains 90% watermelon extract, hydraulic acids, and allantoin. The Watermelon extracts provide antioxidants that slow aging and stimulates the regeneration of skin cells.
Strawberry(firming); contains 90% strawberry extract which is rich in nutrition and improves the fine lines that are visible in the skin.This firming icing gel gives the skin good elasticity to prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
Mango(brightening); contains 90% mango extract that is rich in vitamin C which provides vitality and freshness for a more glowing skin. This variant also is the most effective for burned and irritated skin.
I love using these three interchangeably [it’s actually basing on what scent I want to use on that day. hahahah]. Though, if I were to choose my favorite it would be the Mango. Not only because of the scent but because I love the glowing effect it actually gives the skin.
I suggest for first time users, is to try all three and choose your pick. It’s like getting to know all of them first and decide on what variant you want to walk your life with in the future[hahahah].
All in all, I love this icing gel series. It’s just perfect for the summer and even in any other season!
