I have always been a fan of face exfoliators, but finding the right one has definitely been a mission for me. I have dedicated 2012 to skin care, really getting into the higher end and drugstore brands and finding products that really make my skin feel healthy and rejuvenated. Because I have been trying to get my hands on a lot of brands to try out, the process can get a bit expensive. So the key for me has been looking for sample/travel size skin care products to try without breaking the bank.
One of the products I have been testing out for this month is the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish, which basically works as an exfoliator. I received this sample size a few months ago, and finally decide to give it a try because my skin has been looking pretty tired lately.
The Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish is a face scrub that has the texture of like a sugar scrub (without the yummy sweet taste). It cleanses and scrubs the skin at the same time, removing any dead skin cells at the surface, really smoothing out your skin. The microbeads in the exfoliant are also purifying, so it leaves the skin feeling really soft at the same time.
I have to be honest, the first time I felt the product on my hands, I was very worried that it would be too harsh on my skin because of it feeling like a sugar scrub. But once I gave it a go, gently massaging the product onto my skin and rinsing it it off, I absolutely loved how it left my skin feeling! Because it's a scrub, you can definitely feel more smooth and refreshed because of the microbeads removing all of the dead skin cells. The product was not harsh at all, and can be used during the day or evening.
I think the Laura Mercier Flawless Skin Face Polish has definitely become my favorite facial scrub/exfoliator and I will absolutely be purchasing the full sized product after finishing up this convenient travel size version.
