Physical or Chemical Exfoliant

There are definitely benefits to both and I typically go for chemical exfoliant but sometimes a good face scrub is needed. Do you prefer to use a chemical or physical exfoliant? What is your favourite exfoliating product?

I prefer chemical exfoliant on regular occasions, but I also like to use physical ones sometimes. The Klairs one is my favorite physical exfoliator. 🙂

My skin is sensitive so I avoid using physical exfoliants and choose gentle chemical ones instead.

I prefer both, but sometimes I think something with a physical effect feels like it's actually doing something lol. I currently us an AHA/BHA exfoliating cleanser that has fine little beads, so I can really tell and feel it exfoliating my skin. Honestly, I think our skin needs it. When I don't use it for awhile I can “feel” my skin getting bumpy and textured. Sure, chemical exfoliants help and work well but idk, I think a 2-in-1 works even better

I chose chemical exfoliation. Because my skin is very sensitive, I've tried physical exfoliation but it made my skin worse. 🥺 I use this product because it is very gentle on my skin !
