It’s the time of month for me and with all the hormone changes, I’ve been suffering from an acne outbreak, especially on my forehead and chin area. It took a while for me to recover from the cystic acne and I’m so glad that they have subsided. Lately, to counter the redness and post-acne scars, I’ve been indulging in a facial spa ritual with two products from Exuviance – Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish and Bionic Oxygen Facial Masque.
I’m sure most people are new to Exuviance since it’s not an over-the-counter brand you encounter in Sephora or the drugstores. Exuviance is an advanced skincare line developed by the NeoStrata Company for beauty salons. Utilising the uniquely formulated hydroxy acid technologies like Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA), Polyhydroxy Acid (PHA) and Lactobionic Acid, these powerful ingredients are incorporated into the skincare line to enhance and correct the skin’s renewal process.
PROMO CODE AT THE END, DON’T MISS OUT!
Generally, the look and feel of these Exuviance products make me feel that they are trustworthy due to the professional-looking packaging and all the science research that has been put into them. Developed by dermatologists, they certainly tell you something about the effectiveness of the products.
When you’re feeling a dull skin day, your best friend would be a skin exfoliation scrub, isn’t it? The Exuviance Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish is the brand’s latest anti-aging breakthrough that masters a triple action approach to skin renewal in a single powerful treatment. With a unique blend of physical, chemical and enzyme rejuvenators, the face polish works effectively to bring you a brighter skin complexion.
If you think that this is just a regular skin exfoliator, you’re about to be proven wrong. The face polish utilises professional grade crystals which helps you to exfoliate dead skin cells, revealing smoother skin. With the help of glycolic acid and papaya enzyme, impurities are dissolved while dead skin cells are loosened.
In just one use, you can really feel that dead skin cells are effectively removed, not just physically with the crystals, but also with the help of chemical acid and enzyme. The formula polishes the skin to a gorgeous, silky softness which is fairer and brighter. I find that using it once does not lead to instant reduction of pores and dark spots though but it did help in lightening my acne scars with disciplined usage of twice a week for a month.
When dispensed, you’ll be greeted by a sweet fruity scent which really smells a little like papaya. Massage lightly to the entire face before leaving it on for a maximum of 2 minutes for the chemical and enzyme action to take place and you’re good to wash it away! Reveal brighter and clearer skin. You’ll really feel the softness.
The face polish also does not contain plastic polyethylene beads that are harmful to the environment.
(Pardon my post-acne outbreak skin. The redness is driving me nuts!)
Post-exfoliation care always includes having rejuvenating and hydrating skincare, such as a facial mask. I’ve been enjoying using the Exuviance Bionic Oxygen Facial Masque right after the face polish to enhance the effectiveness of both products. The facial masque is a a triple oxygenating blend that delivers an infusion of pure essential oxygen to detoxify and re-energise skin. The result? A youthful and luminous complexion!
Why is delivering oxygen to the skin important? Well, if you didn’t know, oxygen supports essential cellular energy and helps to optimise collagen in the skin. With ample supply of oxygen in the skin, you’ll see that your skin is healthier and more youthful. Essentially, the facial masque helps to detoxify and eliminate dullness in skin caused by aging, helps stimulate vital cell energy, provides essential support for optimal collagen levels and the PHA/Bionic Blend adds an extra boost of youth to restore radiance and suppleness!
Upon application, you can see that the blue liquid forms a foaming gel that releases oxygen and induces a light tingle.
After about 2 minutes or so, the foam multiplies into a creamier version and you can feel even more tingles as the foam starts to disappear from your skin. Gently rinse and pat dry the skin and you’re done!
The formula contains a patented anti-aging bionic acid/PHA blend along with a conditioning polymer that adds a soft conditioned after-feel to the skin. Hence, you’ll feel that the skin is thoroughly cleansed and soft! Additionally, a polysaccharide known for its hydrating and film forming properties helps to ensure the skin doesn’t dry out in the meantime.
Overall, I’ve really been loving these two and they complement each other very well. You can visibly see that your pores are tightened and super clean! And, you’ll never feel your skin smoother than after experience a spa ritual with the skin-loving duo. 😉
Try it to believe it, that’s all I can say…
