It's time to ditch harsh scrubs

Exfoliants work deeper than scrubs to reveal healthy, glowing skin.

Reveal fresh, healthy looking skin

What is an exfoliant?

An exfoliant gently removes built-up, dead skin cells, without using a harsh, abrasive scrub. Our exfoliants are either formullated with salicylic acid (BHA) or glycolic acid (AHA). Salicylic acid is preferred for oily skin with congested pores. Glycolic acid is preferred for dry skin. While the term "acid" can sound a little scary, there's no need for concern. These ingredients are far from scary - they're actually pretty amazing!

Why use an exfoliant?

Because gentle, (non abrasive) exfoliation removes dead, built-up skin cells to reveal clear, renewed, smoother and younger-looking skin.

Regular exfoliation helps to make:
... dull skin radiant
... rough skin smooth
... wrinkles less visible

How to use an exfoliant?

STEP 1: Cleanse.
STEP 2: Using your fingers or a cotton pad, apply the exfoliant to your face and neck. Do not rinse.
STEP 3: Apply your moisturiser. If you use an acid exfoliant during the day, always follow with a moisturiser with SPF 30 or more.

about: Skin Perfecting 2% BHA Liquid Exfoliant

5 stars

"I have combination skin and had bad spots on the oily areas of my face and had lots of little spots under the surface of my forehead. These are now all gone and I rarely get breakouts. My skin is soft and glowing. More inportantly, my skin stays matte throughout the day for a lot longer than it used to...As an acne sufferer I understand the frustration of having blemished skin every day, so when you find a product like this, it really is life changing and boosts your confidence so much!"
