My skin has been a wreck lately. And I really have no one to blame but myself. I ditched dairy for almost a year but Thanksgiving did me in and I went on a dairy-overload. Same with gluten. Oh girl, trust me…I wish I could eat dairy and gluten with no problems, but the fact is, I can’t. My body just does better with keeping both out of my diet. I’m not sure if dairy is playing a huge part in my skin’s craziness, but all I know is, after going to town on my husband’s ah-maziiiiing macaroni and cheese, my skin has morphed into something that my 15-year old sister can relate to. It’s a mess.
And I love y’all too much to take pictures of it but I figured now was as good time as any to give to try out M.Steve’s Reviving Exfoilator .
I received a sample of this a while back and it has been sitting on my beauty bookshelf for quite some time. While I usually like to wait 4-6 weeks before I review something, I couldn’t wait to share this with y’all. This stuff is awesome. I mean, check out the stats…
-No synthetic dyes or fragrances
And then there’s the list of the things that it DOES include:
-Rose Hip Seed Oil
-Walnut shell powder
-Dead sea mud
The exfoliator is fantastic. It feels like something out of a spa. This 2-in-1 scrub not only works as a microdermabrasion treatment that really massages those pores, but it also acts as an alpha hydroxy acid peel. I’ve used it both ways and found that it completely transforms either way that it’s used.
As a microdermabrasion treatment: Easy does it when using this exfoliator on the skin. The microscopic crystals do so well at gently scrubbing the skin. It’s easy to scrub too vigorously so I found myself repeatedly saying “Go slowly, go slowly…” After rinsing, my skin felt reinvigorated and ridiculously soft.
As an alpha hydroxy acid peel: After applying all over, I left the exfoliator on the skin for 7-10 minutes and rinsed with warm water. I didn’t notice much of a difference until I woke up the next day. My skin seemed brighter, tighter and smoother.
I’m a fan, M.Steves. I’m a fan. Is this exfoliator worth the $48 price tag? I would say so. A microdermabrasion treatment at a spa could easily cost close to $100 per treatment. Having the option to do this at home and get the same results is just…amazing! And what do I use to follow up this exfoliator? That lovely bottle of Ultra-Nourishing Boost. LOVE!
