Types of Exfoliants ๐Ÿ’ซ

I believe that exfoliation is an important step in every skincare routine since it has so many benefits! However there are so many different ways to exfoliate so I wanted to compile most of them โœจ๏ธ Regardless of what type of exfoliation you're choosing make sure you only do it 2-3 times a week and always wear sunscreen! โ˜€๏ธ

Chestnut BHA 2% Clear Liquid

BHA/Salicylic Acid ๐Ÿ’ซ BHA is one of the most popular chemical exfoliant. It can exfoliate both the surface of the skin but also in the pores! This makes it really good at treating blackheads and preventing acne. A must-have for oily and acne prone skin but it also works for dryer skin types! There are loads of different products you can find BHA in, but the most popular one is probably still toners.

A few months ago I was part of the special ISNTREE Create Together Project hosted by @go.picky to help with the creation of this new product. Thank you @isntree, @go.picky and @pickyrewards for sending me this awesome box with the final product: Isntree Chestnut BHA 2% Clear Liquid! Features and benefits: This is a BHA exfoliating toner that contains 2% of Salicylic Acid to remove excessive dead skin cells and sebum, as well as to activate the skin turn-over cycle. It is formulated with Sodium Hyaluronate, Hyaluronic Acid and Hydrolyzed Hyaluronic Acid to create a moisture barrier to prevent moisture loss. It also contains Tannin extracted from chestnut shells to help tighten pores, reduce sebum and restore the oil-and-water balance in skin. My experience: This is the perfect toner this fall to get my dry and dull skin rejuvenated! I use this toner after cleansing my skin. I put a little bit of the toner on a cotton pad or in the palm of my hands and apply it to my skin and gently pat in circular motions for faster absorption. The toner has a liquid clear texture and feels very lightweight. My skin feels so soft and smooth right after using the toner and it does not make my combination to dry skin feel more tight or dry. My skin feels silky soft and smooth, clean and hydrated and my enlarged pores are tighter and less visible. My skin not only feels soft is also has a nice radiant glow. My pores are absolutely looking smaller and tighter and I can not stop touching my skin because of the softness and smoothness. This is such a wonderful toner and I am so excited that I was part of the developing of this amazing product! Thank you again @isntree, @go.picky and @pickyrewards for this amazing opportunity!

Kale-Lalu-Yaha

Glycolic Acid ๐Ÿ’ซ There are many different types of AHA but I want to focus on Glycolic Acid since it's the most well researched! This exfoliant exfoliates the surface of the skin to reveal fresher and smoother skin. In addition it can boost your skins collagen production and helps fade brown spots! While it's not the best pick for sensitive skin it's an absolute powerhouse of an exfoliant!

Krave Beauty's Kale-Lalu-yAHA cleanser is smooth and light in texture, but rapidly absorbing. It creates a sharp or burning sensation, which is not painful or unpleasant, but like that first tingling sensation of the crisp Arctic air touching your face as you step outside during the dead of winter without the fear of frostbite; like facial yoga for improved circulation without a thirty minute workout. Its post-application effects may not be Holy Grail reaching, but the immediate impression was that my skin's absorption of the toner and essence treatments was enhanced. Technically this is also my impression on most exfoliation nights, but it felt like I had the benefits of exfoliation without experiencing any dehydration or tightness/roughness. This is generally considered a good thing and I appreciate the feeling of clear skin without the roughness of dehydrated epidermis. Will this be part of the evening routine or weekly rotation? Yes, for the next month at least. Convenience is worth its weight in Kale-Lalu-yAHA. The ease of application and short time commitment for obtaining a gentle exfoliation offsets the high cost of the product, which is quite reasonable when compared to many of Shopper's skincare products. To like and appreciate are early steps towards love so maybe this relationship will blossom after a few months.

Centella 3% PHA Gentle Liquid Exfoliating Serum

PHA ๐Ÿ’ซ PHA is my personal favorite exfoliant and imo way too under appreciated. Similarly to AHAs it also exfoliates the surface of the skin and can provide anti-aging benefits! In addition it's moisturizing, acts as an antioxidant and can actually help heal your skin barrier. And all of that without irritation! In fact it's so gentle that it's recommended for rosacea prone skin. A must-have for sensitive skin!

Brightening Peeling Gel

Peeling Gel ๐Ÿ’ซ Peeling Gels are generally a type of physical exfoliation, however they do occasionally include chemical exfoliants for added benefits. They contain cellulose or some other type of plant fiber which will bunch up into tiny balls as you rub the product into your skin. These balls will gently buff away dead skin cells to reveal smoother, fresher skin! A great pick if you're looking for gentle, physical exfoliation!

This is a chemical exfoliant that didnโ€™t strip my dry skin after use. Has a gommage peeling, that gives satisfaction feeling when peeling. The gel texture is not to watery and easy to spread in the skin. Dont have to use power when peeling, the exfoliator will di their job. Donโ€™t forget to apply moisturizer after peeling

Green Tea & Enzyme Powder Wash

Powder Wash ๐Ÿ’ซ Powder Washes are a 2 in 1 product since they act as a cleanser and an exfoliant at the same time! They contain fine powders such as grinded up minerals or plant powders which provide gentle physical exfoliation. Sometimes they also include enzymes which offer additional exfoliation benefits! What I love is that you can easily control how strong your exfoliation is with powder washes depending on if you use a lot or just a little! In addition they're great for traveling since you dont face the risk of spilling liquids all over your luggage. A great pick for anyone who is looking for easy daily exfoliation!

Oily/Resilient

As someone who struggles with congested skin and easily clogged pores, I have tried countless skincare products over the years in search of a solution. But nothing has impressed me quite like the By Wishtrend Green Tea Powder Enzyme Wash. Firstly, let me say that the packaging is absolutely gorgeous. The sleek, minimalist design is visually appealing and feels luxurious. But the real magic is inside the bottle. The green tea powder in this enzyme wash is a game-changer for anyone with oily, acne-prone skin. It's packed with antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that help soothe and calm irritation while reducing redness. And because it's a powder, you can easily control the level of exfoliation you need by adjusting the amount of water you use. Since I started using this product, I've noticed a significant improvement in the overall clarity and brightness of my complexion. My pores appear smaller, and my blackheads are significantly reduced. But the best part? This enzyme wash doesn't leave my skin feeling tight or stripped like some other exfoliants can. It also comes in a huge 110g size whereas other brands with similar products are much smaller so youโ€™ll definitely get your moneys worth with this one Overall, I would highly recommend the By Wishtrend Green Tea Powder Enzyme Wash to anyone looking for a gentle yet effective way to improve the appearance of congested, acne-prone skin. It's become a staple in my routine, and I can't imagine ever going back to a traditional foaming cleanser

๐ŸŒธ ~~ @imfrom_global Fig Scrub Mask 5/5 ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ It is a scrub mask that fights dead skin cells with fights enzyme.It is packed with Fig powder and black sugar that melts away dead skin and gently exfoliates. It had a grainy thick texture.This mask reminds me so much of the dear klairs sugar scrub which I absolutely loved. I am always scared of physical scrubs luke this because I have sensitive/combo skin I am afraid of harshness but this one worked really well for me. I loved that when it removed dead skin cells I also saw it's moisturizing effect afterwards. I also use this scrub on my body yo exfoliate and it works well. It has a light sweet fruity scent.

Thanks for sharing this was helpful! How many would you recommend to do exfoliation? I just have my regular skin care routine that contains of cleansing, toner, serum and mouisterizer. My skin is hydrated but I have small, not very noticeable bumps. But I want it to be even smoother! Before I used to use a conjac sponge but I havenโ€™t seen anyone really use them here.
