Facial Skin Exfoliation; The Products We Love

Thursday 11th Nov 2021 |

We all want to take care of our skin but it’s a minefield of products out there. With so much choice bombarding us everyday, it can be confusing to know how many different products we should be using regularly.

Personally, I chop and change my skincare routine fairly frequently and I road test lots of different products, however, the one thing I do religiously at least twice a week, is Facial Skin Exfoliation. My skin always feels softer and cleaner afterwards and seems absorb product more easily – I use a facial oil after I exfoliate each time. So with that said, here are some facial skin exfoliation products I have come across and can recommend.

Originally formulated for dermatologists, the exfoliating cleanser offers gentle but effective exfoliating properties to clean and remove any excess facial oil and dirt.
