We hear in skincare circles that we need to exfoliate the dead skin from time to time in order to keep our faces happy. For those with sensitive skin, however, the idea of scrubbing one’s already-easily-irritable skin with rough granules is not so appealing.

Once again, Korean beauty comes to save the day! If you still want to exfoliate your skin but are concerned about irritating it (throw away that St. Ives Apricot scrub right now!), you should check out a chemical exfoliant, which does the same job without the intensity of a physical scrub. This k-beauty addict’s current favorite product for the job is a must-have for any beauty arsenal: Neogen Biopeel Gauze Peeling pads.

Not only are these pads packed with anti-aging ingredients like glycolic acid and berry extract, but they’re produced cruelty-free and smell like the sweetest, loveliest wine you can imagine. You can get a pack of 30 pads online for about $16, which is a pretty good price considering how luxuriant they are. In fact, you’ll want to eat them. Here’s our pro advice on that: don’t.
