MY STORY: I’m always looking for products to brighten & exfoliate my skin & this product claims to do exactly that.
It’s basically a bottle of powder which you shake out & mix with water to activate enzymes. The consistency is foamy, not too gritty and for an acid exfoliant it’s gentle enough to not irritate skin.
I sometimes leave it longer than a minute and use it as a mask but even after a minute you notice the texture of your skin feels smoother brighter and not at all dry.
I think it’s mild enough for dry sensitive skin, the combination of hydration and exfoliation works well to balance skin and leaves a smooth hydrated texture.
This lasts absolutely ages but it’s on my list for a repurchase when it runs out.
