Friends! Rejoyce! The answer to REALLY smooth skin is here. (Do I sound like a cheesy infomercial? HAHA)
Let me first say – I never exfoliate my body. Like ever. I have a face scrub that I keep in the shower that I use with my Clarisonic. But body exfoliation is not something I do. Now – why the sudden change? The short answer is Allure magazine made me do it. Well, not MADE me, but I saw this product featured last month and knew I wanted to try it. I also know myself – if I don’t leave something in the shower to try, I’ll forget about it and it’ll rot away in one of my many makeup drawers, cabinets, closets, etc. This product is obviously meant to live in the shower so I figured hey, I’ll give it a go.
I got in the shower and made sure my body was coated with water. I took the exfoliator and massaged it into my skin in little circles. It felt gritty but also creamy and gel like which was nice. It wasn’t too harsh on my skin. Then I made sure that I washed thoroughly – there is nothing worse than feeling little grits on yourself after you get out of the shower. After I dried off, I could not believe how sleek and smooth my skin was. This was of course pre-lotion. The product recommends twice weekly use, and I will definitely be following that. I’m sure it will have an even greater use in the winter when skin is dry and flakey and in need of a polish. I also found it to have a slight cooling effect which is much appreciated in this summer heat!
I didn’t expect to like it as much as I do. I didn’t really know what to expect, being a non-body exfoliator person. It made my skin insanely smooth. I kept touching my arms and legs throughout the day because it was that noticeable. And this is just after one use. I'll even take it a step further - I called the ultimate beauty junkie (my mom) and told her that I would be picking her up one of these to try. My mom tries everything and is a big critic when it comes to beauty products - she will tell it like it is! Will let you guys know if she agrees with my glowing review =)
All in all, you need this. Your skin will thank you.
