I recently purchased a new facial exfoliant because my previous one was empty and I wanted to try something new. I thought it would be fun to do a quick review, share my feedback and discuss the benefits of exfoliating.
What is Exfoliating
Exfoliating is the process of removing built up dead skin cells from the surface of your skin. This can be achieved either by a physical or chemical means. Examples are facial tools, facial scrubs or leave on treatments.

E.L.F. Gentle Peeling Exfoliant
I decided to pick up this exfoliant because I know the brand is affordable and provides quality products. I have been using it for about a month and so far I love it! It is simple to use and I use it once a week. Apply the cleanser to a dry face and massage into the skin in circular motions. It works by shedding layers of dry skin that have built up on the surface of the skin. I read a review that talks about the shedding that appears on the skin surface is not actually your skin but cellulose which is an ingredient in the formula. The formula is gentle and does not dry out my skin. It leaves my skin looking radiant and soft and I am very happy with the results.
Do you exfoliate on a regular basis? If so, what is your go to brand? I would love to hear in the comment section!
