Fighting the signs of aging one pump at a time.
Cold weather and rain definitely causes my skin to become dried out and a bit more rough. Not only that, my skin can sometimes react badly to an immediate change of skincare products! You know how it goes! I was very excited when I got my hands on Exuviance’s Purifying Cleansing Gel! I noticed that this product offers a lot of product for a face cleanser. This product has several key features that really attracted me to incorporating it into my skincare routine:
• Formulated with Glycolic Acid (AHA) and Gluconolactone (PHA) to exfoliate and clarify
• Deep cleans to remove makeup and impurities
• Soap-free formula is non-drying and gentle to skin
• Conditioners soothe and improve texture
• For all skin types, including sensitive skin
First of all, I love Glycolic Acid based skin care products! It is often extracted from sugar cane and it can be safely used to exfoliate the skin. Because my skin tends to become rough from makeup usage and the ever changing weather conditions in the Bay Area, Glycolic Acid keeps my skin soft and smooth! This product also removes makeup which is a huge plus for me. As a beauty product aficionado, it is important to be able to gently remove every trace of makeup on my face! This product is a soap-free formula, it also prevents my skin from being dried out which is especially important during the colder months in my case.
Just from the benefits that this product provides, I am definitely impressed. Just like many of you all, I am not convinced until I put the product to use. So, did Exuviance’s Purifying Cleansing Gel pass the test? Let’s see!
In order to see the full-effects of the product, I used it while having cosmetic products on my face and I also used it with a Clarisonic. My pores require a bit more deep cleaning so using a Clarisonic helps. I rubbed this product into my skin and lathered it up a bit, followed by a deep cleaning using the Clarisonic. No stinging or uncomfortable feelings. It has a light scent that reminds me of apples. I like it! So far so good! After rinsing my face off with lukewarm water and patting it dry with a towel, immediately my skin looked and felt amazing! It almost appeared as if it were glowing. This kind of glow and vibrance is very similar to what a natural based, high-end, facial cleansing product can offer (which I have cycled off of, for now). Very impressive! Obviously this product will not completely transform my skin in only a few uses but right away my skin looked bright, and felt very smooth. I could not find a trace of makeup and it appeared as if it deep cleaned my pores. After letting my face dry a bit I didn’t notice any redness or signs of irritation, which is quite common for me. I am definitely impressed with this product!
This product is definitely going to stay in my skincare routine, and hopefully overtime I can see how the Glycolic Acid improves my skin texture with continued use. This product so far has been great, and being that it can be used on all skin types (mines changes with the seasons) I can definitely see this product being used regardless of what season it is.
As far as “negatives”, I would have to say that the availability of the product is quite upsetting. I haven’t seen this product being sold in many large retailers, so in order to re-stock I’d have to order it online. This can cause quite a stir if I run out without having a back-up! Other than that, I have to give this product an “A” rating for its performance, and awesome benefits!
