Week three of my skincare favorites is here!! This week we are talking about exfoliators!! If you missed the first two weeks you can check out facial cleansers here and cleansing oils here. Today we are moving on to exfoliators since that is the next logical step in my skincare routine. First you cleanse your skin really well with either a cleanser or an oil and then you exfoliate!
Some exfoliators are gentle enough for everyday use and some are jut for a few times a week. You can choose what you want to do but I am an every couple of days exfoliating kind of girl. Nothing against those who choose to exfoliate everyday but sometimes when I come home from work I am doing good to just wash my face…HA!
So lets get to my favorite facial exfoliators…
ONE. Fresh Umbrian Clay Face Exfoliant I have to admit that I have only ever used a sample of this exfoliator but I really loved it. This exfoliator is enriched with lemon fruit extract, olive leaf extract, and chamomile flower and lavender water. It’s kind of pricy but definitely worth it and will last a long time if you only use it a few times a week.
TWO. St. Ives Apricot Scrub This exfoliator is considered America’s #1 and for a good reason, it’s affordable and really gets the job done. This may just be the first exfoliating scrub I ever used and so it has a special place in my heart.
THREE. First Aid Beauty Facial Radiance Polish This is one of my newest finds and my first product from First Aid Beauty that I have ever tried. This exfoliator contains shea nut shell powder and willow bark extract.
FOUR. Clinique 7 Day Scrub This is hands down one of my absolute favorite exfoliators. I keep this bad boy in the shower and use it once or twice a week. It was inducted into Allure magazine’s “Beauty Hall of Fame” and I think it’s the best one for the price point. I heard a rumor that it may be going away so I need to stock up!!
FIVE. Kate Somerville ExfoliKate I actually grabbed a sample of this from Sephora and am seriously loving it. While this exfoliator may cost a pretty penny it is definitely worth it. ExfoliKate contains lactic acid and fruit enzymes but is super gentle on your skin. Love it!!
So that’s all I have for exfoliators today. Exfoliating is a very important part of your skincare routine and shouldn’t be skipped. It really helps remove the dead skin and leaves you looking bright and young…and can’t we all use that? I know I sure could!!
I really hope you enjoyed this post and will stay tuned for the rest of the series!! Next week will be all about masks!!!
