Natural? Organic? Man made? Vegan?
How do you use it?
After a proper cleansing, apply a 10c piece over face in a thin layer. Leave on for 3-10 minutes then rinsing thoughtfully with warm water. Follow with hydrating serums and moisturizers or facial oils for fast absorption.
I use this twice a week as my primary exfoliation the day before shaving. Use at your own discretion no more then twice a week. IT PACKS A PUNCH!!!
I recommend reapplying 5c piece at the 5 min mark if there is no feeling of product on skin. Maximum absorption!!! But please use carefully and observe how your skin reacts.
What’s good about it?
Superb stable formulation allows deep penetrations of actives, Plumping and firming the skin and filling it to the brim with nutrient goodness. Also has non-offensive natural scent.
What's not so good about it?
.... Nothing really. Apart from the necessary preservatives which lets be honest they could have done much worse but they have keep them small, simple and effective also fairly natural. It is a really lovely product.
Where to use in your routine?
Once to twice a week as your primary exfoliant.
Works great with - I can see this being suiting a range of different skin conditions however I would highly recommend following with a good serum high in hyaluronic acid to really maximize hydration absolution.
Doesn't work so great with - Other exfoliants, highly acidic toners or vitamin A creams and serums. You don't want to over exfoliate or overstimulate!
