I’m a huge fan of exfoliants! Nothing soothes out and brightens up the complexion like sloughing off all the gunk piled on the skin’s surface. I love chemical exfoliants such as glycolic acid and salicylic acid but when I still want some exfoliation that’s on the gentle side I bust out a powder exfoliant.
The first powder exfoliant I ever tried was Dermalogica’s Daily Microfoliant. Once mixed with water to it works to gently exfoliate. It’s been years since I used Daily Microfoliant and I started getting the urge to purchase it. What stopped me? I came across a completely natural (and locally owned) version by brand Province Apothercary.
I purchased mine at Whole Foods. Conveniently, Province Apothecary offers a smaller 30mL alternative to their 120mL size which I opted for in case I wasn’t crazy about the product. So, here’s my verdict; it’s perfect for exactly what I need it for: light, gentle exfoliation. This stuff smells EXACTLY like a bunch of crushed herbs and plants because, well, it is. With that in mind, this product may cause itchiness in those who are prone to allergies triggered by plants.
