Imagine my delight and excitement when I got a new skin care product to try. ELEMIS Gentle Rose Exfoliator is the product I am talking about. Lately my interest has shifted more towards skin care. I love researching on and trying out new and interesting skin care products. Hence I was super excited to try this new exfoliator out of my already burgeoning exfoliators 🙂 Read on to know my thoughts on the ELEMIS Gentle Rose Exfoliator.
Lets start with the packaging. The exfoliator comes in a simple white tube with a silver cap on top. I really like the packaging, it is simple and clean yet sophisticated and classy, lending an air of luxury to it. Not plain or boring at all. The product is touted to be a gentle rose exfoliator and for sure, you can smell roses upon opening the cap. The fragrance is not over-powering at all.
The product has micro-spherical jojoba beads blended with Rose absolute to gently exfoliate the surface of the skin leaving it silky smooth and soft to touch. Cucumber extract known to be rich in Vitamin C, moisturises as it soothes and refreshes.
The texture of the product is like a gel. It is clear in color with very micro mini beads visible in the gel. As you open the cap, you are instantly transported to a rose filled garden. The gel is applied on damp skin, massaging in light circular motion. After washing the gel off, smooth, soft and a brighter complexion is revealed. The gel is very gentle as the name suggests. It is not gritty or abrasive at all. It is gentle enough to be used on sensitive and even mature skin. The jojoba beads are hardly noticeable on the skin. I have used this a couple of times and I feel that for days when one needs a gentle skin exfoliation, this product comes in handy. Specially for the coming winter months, this will be a good skin exfoliator as the skin is already dry in those months and one needs non-abrasive and non-gritty formulas. Since it is a moisturising formula, it will work great in winter for restoring skin hydration whilst exfoliating at the same time.
The formula is very gentle, safe to say it is so gentle that it can be used almost everyday for buffing away dead skin cells. It leaves the skin looking clean and bright. It also hydrates the skin. Though I feel for girls who have oily skin, they would find the formula too gentle for their needs.
I would say for girls who have dry or dry to combination would benefit from this product the most.
I am happy with the results of this product though I do feel it would work best in winter months.
