We all know that exfoliation can do wonderful things for our complexion; buffs away dead skin cells for a more polished, brighter looking skin-tone, unclogs congested pores to improves skin’s texture and promotes cell regeneration for a youthful appearance. However, it’s not always as easy to find a great facial exfoliator/scrub especially if you have sensitive skin.
Here’s a sensitive-skin friendly, natural skin-polishing refiner that gently removes dull, dead skin cells and impurities without irritation – Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Refining Treatment. It also helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and large pores and enhances cell renewal to help improve skin smoothness and uncover fresh, glowing skin.
Apricot Seed Powder, with its rounded structure, naturally polishes skin gently, without irritation.
Willow Bark Extract, a natural source of Salicylic Acid, helps enhance cell turnover by gently exfoliating the skin, preparing it for the treatments that follow.
Natural Bisabolol and Calendula soothe, soften and hydrate the skin.
This refining treatment has a creamy texture with tiny exfoliating beads in the mix that do not feel harsh or rough on the skin. The directions suggest to apply a pearl sized amount to wet hands and gently massage onto damp skin (for about a minute), avoiding the eye area. And then rinse off with warm water. I love the fresh, invigorating scent and the way this exfoliator leaves my skin looking so smooth and radiant without any signs of irritation or dryness. I use it every other day, right after cleansing my face, rinse, then on to my serum and moisturizer. The product is recommended to be used 2-3 times a week or as often as desired.
I like that this exfoliant contains a natural form of salicylic acid (willow bark) that works deep down in clogged pores to clear away impurities that cause breakouts, blackheads and build-up. This one is great to use after a night of heavier makeup!
If you’re looking for a gentle, natural exfoliator to work into your routine, Jurlique Purely Age-Defying Refining Treatment is definitely worth checking out! Being an all-natural formula, it sure is a bit expensive ($35 for 1.4oz) but the tube will last you quite a while as you don’t need much to get the job done! Available at jurlique.com
