Exfoliate! We hear about it everywhere, and there are a million and one products to help us do it. Facial scrubs, facial sponges, body scrubs, body sponges; but there is a new product that I had the chance to test, that will shock and amaze you all at the same time.
It is called Exfolimate, and it was created in Australia. This might actually be the weirdest addition to my beauty routine, simply because it looks like a large blade! However, the "blade" is not sharp at all, so you don't have to worry about cutting yourself.
There are two sizes, a small one for your face, and a large one for your body. To use them, you simply wet your skin, then run the "blade" along your skin at a 90 degree angle. Rinse the blade if needed, and repeat.
I will have to admit, that I was a tiny bit skeptical at first, but I gave it a shot while I was in the bath, and was surprised by the results. The package suggests using this before you shave to help remove skin build up, and make for a smoother shave, with less ingrown hairs. I also suffer from an acute case of Keratosis pilaris , which is basically a build up of skin that causes small acne like bumps on your body...for me, they are present on my thighs.
I got in the bath, made sure to soak for a minute, then used the exfolimate. After using the blade, I shaved like I normally do, and I was totally shocked by how smooth my skin felt after I got out of the tub.
I use it about once a week, and my skin just continues to get better and better. I almost cant even feel the patches of keratosis on my thighs.
I think this is an awesome product, and recommend it to anyone looking to exfoliate their skin.
