This exfoliator did not agree with my skin: clogged my pores and made me break out. I tried it a couple of times and each time this happened. I don't think this is a good product for my sensitive/normal skin.
I received this product in my monthly subscription and it far exceeds my expectations, so much so that I’ve changed my routine to incorporate the Ayuna products into my daily/weekly routine. This feels like an exfoliation product that you would only receive in a high-end spa and it leaves my skin soft and moisturized. I follow up with my moisturizer for extra hydration. This product is beautiful.
Pamper yourself in right and beautiful products!
What a fascinating product! In reading reviews, I ran across the term gommage. Apparently that is a French term for a product that exfoliates through a rubbing , or erasing, action. By definition, skin should be left soft and silky. This cream-in-oil peel seemed to pen that definition. For the smoothest application, I have found that using a mask brush actually uses less product and allows for a more even distribution of the product. That means that the somewhat messy "erasing" of the product by rubbing it off goes more smoothly. I find that it takes just a bit of practice to get good at removing it, but I do appreciate the results as well as the remaining oil left on the skin to provide additional moisture.
The quality of this product is immediately apparent in the light texture and rich scent. My skin cannot tolerate the harsh, high percentage AHA and BHA acids that are currently in fashion in skincare, so I was excited to try something different. This product is gentle but effective. The gommage removal technique is not as messy as advertised, I just lean over the sink and wash it all away. For a final step, I buff the remainder off lightly with a dry microfiber cloth. The moisturized feel at the end is delightful compared to the tight, harsh, drying effect of AHA and BHA acid products. The scent was a little intense at first, but it has become something I crave. My skin is left smooth and soft without being abraded or stripped or irritated, the way other exfoliating products do. This is an elegant, advanced formulation.
