It seems fitting that in the dead of winter I received a little package in the mail from Australia with the name Exfolimate. The whole idea behind this tool is to exfoliate, in other words, remove dead skin. And so in the dead of winter, when my skin is parched, dry and gross, the thing that is definitely needed is exfoliation. (that and a sunny vacation, but I digress!)
Exfoliation seems to be back in the beauty spotlight again. There are many tools, scrubs and products which can help with this very task. Some of these tools are quite pricey (up around $200) and not affordable for most of us. At around $29, Exfolimate is definitely on the affordable side.
This tool is really easy to use. Essentially, it is a triangular shaped tool with a small blade. If it sounds dangerous, it isn’t! The blade incorporates smooth edge micro-groove technology to gently ease off the dead layers of debris and skin. You use the Exfolimate tool in the shower, when your skin is already wet. You gently apply pressure to the area you are treating (either the body or face). There are two Exfolimate tools included in the package, one for the body (slightly larger) and one for the face. You only have to do a few passes over the area you are treating, not more than 4 to 6 times. When you are done washing, simply dry the area and immediately moisturize.
The results are fantastic. The areas that I treated with Exfolimate felt smoother and softer after I showered and moisturized. It was easy to use, and comes with a strap to wrap around your wrist so you don’t drop it in the shower. I have been really impressed with both the ease of use, and immediate results.
There are many different uses for Exfolimate. The most basic is just to remove the rough, thickened and dead skin so that the result is a smoother, softer and younger looking you! If you are person who goes to get regularly spray tans, you can use Exfolimate before you go. That way, when you get your tan, your skin is a smooth canvas, which makes for a more even glow.
I received a sample of Exfolimate at no cost in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. No other compensation was received in exchange for this post.
