Non Abrasive Exfoliators

When it comes to exfoliating I am much more of a chemical exfoliant girl, scrubs and manual exfoliators don't really sit that well in my routine purely because my skin is dry and dehydrated and abrasive exfoliators irritate my skin if used too often, so I have a trio of products that are chemical exfoliators that gently remove the layer of dead skin cells and reveal glowing skin without the harshness of a scrub.

Firstly the Nip & Fab Glycolic Fix Exfoliating Facial Pads are a great alternative for manual/physical exfoliants. The Glycolic Acid is a chemical exfoliator which works really well for my skin, manual exfoliators such as facial scrubs that contain the little beads are too harsh on my skin to use everyday which is why I much prefer these little pads. It just helps to remove that top layer of dead skin cells from your face to reveal a fresher and healthier glow to your skin. These pads are slightly raised/textured so aid in exfoliating and wiping away the impurities and dead skin cells.

The REN Glycolactic Renewal Mask is an exfoliating peel/treatment that shifts dead skin cells and helps to remove any blockages in the pores to reveal a healthy looking complexion with a radiant glow and I can most certainly confirm that it does just that. I apply 1 pump of product for my whole face and just smooth on using my fingers. You are meant to leave it on for around 10 minutes, if I'm honest I leave it for a little longer, probably around 20 minutes. Not sure if this is the right or wrong thing to do but it works for me and my skin. I then remove with a damp cloth (the one which is included), once the mask is removed my skin is left so amazingly soft and healthy looking, it literally just glows.

Lastly, it's the This Works No Wrinkles Wonder Essence. this is a pre serum but can also be used as a serum. It's a very light liquid, almost watery, that contains hyaluronic acid so is slightly exfoliating on the skin. I completely love this product, it exfoliates the skin very gently to reveal a brighter and healthier complexion.

So they're my top three non abrasive exfoliators, have you tried these products? Do you have any recommendations?

  3. I tried a sample of the Ren mask and I like it a lot! Currently I really like the Amorepacific treatment enzyme peel, it's a powder that you activate with a little bit of water and it works really well for me. Only downside is that it's quite expensive, though it does last a really long time!
