Cure advertises itself as providing gentle exfoliation without any harshness. This is because it doesn't use physical beads to exfoliate, like most exfoliaters do. Also, unlike other chemical exfoliators, it doesn't use acids either. Instead, my understanding is that there are ingredients in there that "peel" once in contact with skin. So the soft, balled up product ends up exfoliating the skin, instead of an acid, or a physical type of grit.
But you don't want me to blab on right? You want to see some photos!
The gel itself is colourless, odorlous, and is just clear gel. But once you massage it around your skin a little, you will see that the product starts balling up, and you get little white balls all over your skin. It's quite exciting actually, and the novelty of using something like this doesn't die out easily.
How is all that dead skin coming off? Honestly, I've no idea, but it feels good. My guess is that not all of that is dead skin - some is dead skin, and some is product (If it were all dead skin I imagine you'd see chunks of skin missing.) Together, you get a very good exfoliation experience.
The next thing I also have from Cure is the Cure Water Treatment Skin Cream. This was actually made for the company's own staff who suffered from dry hands due to daily handling of cardboard boxes! It isn't for sale now, but Cure is currently giving away 600 free tubes of this as part of Cure's 10th anniversary celebrations!
This is a very nice lightweight cream. It really feels more like a very light lotion, rather than a cream of any sort. And it has a very watery feel, too. Once you apply the cream, it sinks in very fast and doesn't leave behind any residue at all. It's so quick and easy to use, and it feels good on the skin too.
Now for the fun part!
