Exfoliating my skin is an important step to remove the dead layer on the outer surface of my skin, open up my pores, renew it, and keep it looking fresh and clean. The feel after exfoliating my skin is just so refreshing. The product you choose is also very important so I just wanted to give you a little review on an exfoliate that I just used. I heard amazing reviews and people raving about the Kate Somerville exfoliates and I had a sample, so I had to try it! It’s a green exfoliate with a very strong scent and for me that’s not a really good start. The strong scent is full of spices that felt like a whole lot of cinnamon and ginger to me. And for me, a girl with sensitive skin, once I put it on my skin it really burned and I did not feel safe to keep it on for so long. They suggest scrubbing for 30 seconds and keeping it on for 2 minutes – I just scrubbed and washed it right off and used my toner right away to calm my skin if it will have any redness caused. I have very sensitive and acne prone skin so this was a little tough on my skin.
The packaging even claims that it will make my skin feel irritated, which I did not like either that a company is claiming such a thing. This exfoliate may work great with people that don’t have sensitive skin but please be careful with picking out your new exfoliates and if you feel it burn or irritate your skin, take it off and don’t wait to experiment.
