• Exfoliators | Mid-range

    Continuing my exfoliator series, I am following up with a mid-range exfoliator that is from Avene. Avene makes good quality skin care products and are available from certain Clicks stores.
    Type of exfoliator: Chemical and mechanical using micro-beads of various sizes.

    What I like: 
    1. It has bigger micro-beads which is more gentle on my skin but still gives a good exfoliation.
    2. Contains salicylic acid to chemically exfoliate and clears pores.
    3. Contains zinc cluconate to purify skin and reduces inflammation.
    4. Can be used on dry skin to get a deeper exfoliation when needed.
    5. It is a pretty product and smells so nice which makes it a pleasure to use.
    6. When my skin feels a bit sensitive but I need to exfoliate, I reach for this as it isn't harsh at all.
    What to keep in mind:
    1. If you like a deep exfoliation that really lifts a lot of your skin cells, you will be disappointed in this. I initially was because I like to really get in there and have very smooth skin, but this is good for when my skin is acting up.
    2. This is something you have to consistently use to "build up to" a really smooth finish. By the end of the second week (using it twice a week) I had the smooth skin finish I want after an exfoliation.
    With all exfoliators, after you've exfoliated your skin it is very important to follow up with a face mask or at least a very good quality serum / face oil and moisturiser. I never exfoliate in the mornings because my skin can be a little bit red for a while and I don't want to layer makeup over my skin. If you do exfoliate in the mornings, definitely wear a very good sunblock.

    Big Hugs,
