if you have dry and sensitive skin but would like to exfoliate your dull skin, this is definitely the type of face scrub you would love! it brightens up your skin but at the same time leaving ur skin smooth, soft and hydrated! love this so much and will purchase again in future! :)
last week i went to do facial extraction whch has caused bad scarring afterwards. the pimples did go away but not the scar.ive been doin some googling to search for a reliable exfoliant tht can help to clear my skin up from e acne scars. i bought this exfoliator after reading reviews on it.this exfoliator works well on my super sensitive/blemish-prone skin w/o causin any irritation/inflammation unlike other scrubs that ive used b4 whch normally would lead to burning sensation after rubbing my face.the clear,smooth n brightened effects r pretty much immediate after the first application and my acne scars do fade too.I am simply lovin it!
Hmm, does the tube have a new look? I thought mine looks long and lean.........
These days, the only facial skincare I still spend big bucks on is scrubs. I've found really nice cleanser and moisturizer that's fairly cheap, but after that whole "my face is seriously hurt by sugar" incident, I have yet to find a facial scrub that suits my face and is reasonably priced. (Sugar works really well on my body though)
So I bought this and the Angelica facial scrub at the beginning of this month, I think. I prefer this one, and I actually really like it, which is not a good thing because of how expensive this is (You only get 75ml of product!!!)
It has a really pleasant smell (The Angelica one somehow smells like grass, not a bad smell, but I always feel kinda weird rubbing it all over my face), the scrubbies in it are just the right size and amount (The Angelica one has round scrubbies and is a lot more gentle, in fact, you probably don't feel like you exfoliate your face much, which can be a good thing for extremely sensitive skin) The product kinda turns into some sort of white milky liquid on contact with water, so you know you can easily wash it off. It makes your skin incredibly soft (Which is something I fail to notice when I use the Angelica one), but not too tight (But I guess this one is a bit more drying than the Angelica one, so don't use it too often)
I will have to buy it again if I can't find anything better and cheaper, obviously. I think using scrubs regularly makes a huge difference in the appearance of my skin, so, money well spent, I guess.
I really, really like this whole line and this scrub. I have pretty sensitive skin and my face does get a tad red after use. The product has fine particles that really do exfoliate - in my opinion it does not feel like more gentle exfoliators like Prescriptives or Revive. I think for someone with sensitive skin this product may be too harsh to use more than twice a week. It really leaves my skin glowing and smooth.
This is a very gentle scrub that seems to work for so many of us with sensitive skin. It has never irritated mine - though it gave me a couple of whiteheads - but neither has it improved my skin. The biggest turn-off for me was the greasy film it left on my face - I wish this didn't try to moisturize. Also, I'm not happy with the strong smell of this line. The lid design is super efficient, really protecting the product in the bathroom. If you are looking for an extremely gentle scrub, it is worth a try I guess. Ahava's Dead Sea mud delivers much better results for way less on my skin.
I have extremely sensitive skin with rosacea and I'm reluctant to try new exfoliators. However, I'm also not willing to take myself out of the game and never exfoliate my face just because it's sensitive. I got a sample of this from L'occitane and tried it. With one use I noticed a huge difference. My skin was as smooth as glass, very soft, and looked brighter. Best of all there was no irritation or redness whatsoever!!! Finally! I just bought a tube from skinstore.com using a 20% off code. I'm very happy with this product.
Oh yes, i will definitely buy this facial scrub again, Darn I WISH they had this in a larger tube like 8oz's, cos i use this along with the Immortelle foaming face wash, I did my own experiment, i added a slight tiny squeese of this scrub to the foaming face wash in my hands, (face damp wet), then applied both to my face and scrubbed, Oh wow, my skin is definitly has been better in appearances ever since I started using this LOccitane Immortelle skincare lines, I love this scrub, it made my face feel softer, No redness (my skin is ultra senstive), and No dryness to my face after the two combined !!! I even use this scrub alone, and it does just the same to my face Clear, soft No rosasea blotchiness's to my face No more, this product face scrub works, My skin LOVES LOVES IT,!!!!! I am for sure a Loccitane fan for sure, I will be rebuying this face scrub again!!!!! I have tried MANY MANY MANY skincare lines and NEVER NEVER seen results, I CANT BELIEVE i see results with this Immortelle skincare face scrub with 1 day use!!! its a miracle!!! I wish they would reduce there prices and UP there sizes jars and bottles !!!!
I work in David Jones on the cosmetics floor and I've gone nuts looking for the perfect exfoliator. I like grainy textures and not the ones where you have to wait for 20 minutes for the AHAs to dissolve the dead skin. After using Immortelle Brightening Smoothing Exfoliator after one go, I noticed an immediate difference in my skin, it was soft, smooth and I woke up with glowing skin. I figure I have quite thin skin (Asian) and I get red easily, but this exfoliator didn't exasperate it at all. I found that after a few uses, my skin was even softer, I couldn't wait to use it again, my pores are smaller and it was so easy to use in the shower! I just love that you just have to turn the lid and squeeze! It's pricey, but I'm in love!
I am VERY picky with my exfoliators and I must say I like this one. It is quite easy and pleasant to use and fairly effective.
