I am somewhat of a creature of habit when it comes to skin care. I love my Eve Lom cleanser, don’t vary my moisturiser or sunscreen choices much, and even have my favourites with haircare and cosmetics, but today I have a new ‘find’ to share with you all.
One thing I have always been a fan of is exfoliators. I love the feeling of smoothness you get after using them and the idea of sloughing away all those dead cells. Now that I use Eve Lom I actually don’t use exfoliators all that often as the muslin cloth exfoliates for me daily. However when I needed a boost I used to occasionally use Dermalogica’s daily microfoliant. I’ve had that for years though so when I spotted this No.7 micro-dermabrasion exfoliator, I thought I would give it a go. Reporting to be so effective you should wear extra sunscreen, I was hoping for big things.
I prefer my exfoliators to feel like they are doing something and this one came out as a granulated paste, with an almost sand like texture when rubbed in. I was really pleased with the results too. Super smooth skin, as promised, and although I expect some level of tightness in the skin after exfoliating, it wasn’t overly uncomfortable.
I’m so happy with it, I binned the Dermalogica. My skin has cleared up massively in recent weeks, (more on that later,) so I was really keen to make the most of it. Add to that the fact that I’ve been thinking about stepping up my skin-care in view of my recent big-three-oh birthday and I think this product is worth a try if you want to do the same. At £11 I didn’t think it was too expensive either, just over a third of the price of the Demalogica.
Have you tried the No.7 Total Renewal Micro-dermabrasion exfoliator? Or have you got a favourite you can recommend here?
