Mirror mirror on the wall, Why am I not glowing at all?
We all have days, where we stand in front of the mirror and feel that our skin is looking dull and listless. Common factors that cause dull skin can be anything from dehydration, poor diet or even lack of exfoliation.
So, the next question is, how often should you exfoliate your skin? Over-exfoliation can irritate your skin and can cause breakouts. If you have normal or combination skin, you can exfoliate your skin two to three times a week. If you have sensitive skin like mine, exfoliating your skin once a week is enough.
Let’s talk about exfoliators. There are physical and chemical exfoliators. Some physical exfoliators can be very abrasive on your skin as they have large exfoliants. I have sensitive skin and I am always very careful about using any scrubs which have large exfoliants or particles.
I bought the Vitamin C daily glow cleansing polish by The body shop and have been using it for over two months. Let’s get into the details of this glow polish.
Product Description: The Vitamin C daily glow cleansing polish is a 2 in 1 product, it cleanses and exfoliates. It is a pale orangish gel face wash with tiny microbeads. It has a zesty citrus fragrance which is very refreshing.
Packaging and Pricing: It comes in a 125ml orange tube with a black flip cap which is spill proof and hence it is travel-friendly. It is priced at Rs. 1145/-
Vitamin C rich camu camu from the Amazonian rainforest, Peru – This fruit is a powerful antioxidant and it contains more vitamin c than in any other plant. It helps to get rid of pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles and it gives you glowing skin and,
Aloe vera – It helps to calm skin irritation, acne, prevents dark spots, etc.
How to use: Though it is a daily cleansing polish I am using it only once or twice a week depending on how my skin is feeling. When my pores are clogged I use this face wash to get rid of any dead skin cells.
My thoughts: The Vitamin C daily glow cleansing polish gently exfoliates the skin. It leaves the skin feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. I can see a difference after using this face wash. It gives my tired and dull skin the glow it needs.
If you have sensitive skin you can test this facewash before purchasing by trying their sample. I usually get samples of products that I wanna try, and if the product does suit my skin, I go and buy the full-sized product. This way you won’t waste your money on products that don’t suit your skin.
