Clarins Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner
I don't know where to begin proclaiming my love for this product. I bought it after reading a review online and liked the sound of it. You see I have dry flaky skin but when I use exfoliators they just seem to irritate my skin and leave it red and even more flaky than before. Enter Clarins Gentle Exfoliator. I have now said goodbye to my dry flaky skin because of this beauty. Clarins describe it as -
" A fresh, fluid exfoliating lotion that brightens smooths and softens skin. Regular exfoliation helps to strengthen the skin's resistance to wrinkles and maintain the balance between preventing a build-up of dead cells and encouraging cell renewal."
Now they recommend only using this once or twice a week at most as it contains AHA. AHA can make your skin sensitive to the sun. Since the percentage of AHA is very low I use it daily. This is my second bottle and I have had no sensitivity. Originally I was using it twice daily but I was flying through it and found that using it once a day was giving me the same results.
It is a thick liquid that you apply to cotton wool and sweep over your face. You then have to wait one minute before applying your moisturiser. My skin feels lovely and smooth after applying it and as I mentioned above since I have been using this product I have not suffered any bouts of flaky skin. I use to get extremely dry around my nose area and when I applied my foundation it looked awful. I had tried everything to cure this problem but this is the first product I have gotten such postive results from.
Having found this successful type of exfoliator for my skin. I can not wait to try Pixi Glow Tonic and maybe P60.
What is your favourite exfoliator?
