This smiley face is exactly how I feel about ExfoliKate!!! It makes me very happy!!! I've gushed about this product in several Empties posts now, and my tune hasn't changed one bit! I LOVE this stuff!!!
The texture is slightly gritty but not harsh. It uses the power of fruit enzymes along with the physical effects of microbeads to get rid of dead skin cells and help clear out pores. I have yet to find anything that removes dead, flakey skin as well as ExfoliKate. Baby washcloths come close, but ExfoliKate is so amazing at loosening the 'glue' that holds all that gunk together and then actually removing it! This also leaves my skin soft, glowy and I feel as though all my products sink in better after using ExfoliKate.
Microbeads and Fruit Enzymes are intended to clean pores, while Salicylic Acid is formulated to balance hydration, without over-drying. See dramatically smoother, brighter, healthier-looking skin after just one treatment.
- Effectively cleans pores with microbeads, Salicylic Acid and enzymes.
- Reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
- Aloe Vera and Vitamin E help to smooth and soften skin.
As a note of caution, some do find this too strong and may need to lessen number of times used/week or switch to the gentle version. I'm used to using some acids and other strong ingredients, so my skin tolerates this very well.
Quick and sweet...I have nothing but absolute love for ExfoliKate, and I'm officially using this post to add it to my list of Holy Grail products!!!
