Hi everyone! Today I am reviewing another Antipodes product. It's the Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator. I already reviewed two fantastic Antipodes face creams here and I am starting to fall in love with this amazing natural and organic brand and there is more reviews to come :)
Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator 75ml* £20.99 link
'Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator contains 100% pure avocado oil, marigold flower, tonka bean and sandalwood. It helps to lift away lifeless skin, leaving a fresh complexion that feels reborn. Healing calendula oil works to nurture and repair, while carrot seed extract helps clear and revitalise skin's surface. Exotic essential oils of sandalwood, sweet orange and tonka bean calm and balance your skin's appearance.'
Since I started using Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish with a muslin cloth, I stopped using exfoliators, but after a couple of months I decided that my skin needs something more to remove dead skin cells 2-3 times a week. Most face scrubs are very harsh on my skin, but this one is very gentle! It also smell really nice. It is not a strong fragrance, but a very pleasant fruity aroma.
The formula is very creamy and contains micro jojoba beads that are so small that you can hardly notice them. I can feel them on my skin, but thy are not scratchy at all. The scrub leaves my skin clear and fresh and the calendula and avocado oils help to keep it soft and nourished.
I use it on dry skin to get a better effect, but if your skin is sensitive, always make sure your face is wet prior to exfoliation. Massage it into your face and rinse with warm water. I always sweep my face with a cotton wool pad soaked in a gentle alcohol free toner after exfoliating and follow with a nourishing moisturiser.
This exfoliator must be the best one I have ever used. It is gentle, smells lovely and does exactly what it says on the tin :)
