I love Sprouts our natural foods store! When they have a cosmetic sale they have awesome ones! I was looking for a new exfoliator something really natural, soft but does it job. I have looked at Gabriel Cosmetics product line before but its always been a bit pricey for me. So when I saw that Sprouts was having a 25% sale on all cosmetics I finally bought one item I been wanting to try.
What they say about it:
An exceptional skin polisher containing natural bamboo powder enriched with sweet almond oil and Vitamin E to thoroughly cleanse the skin while gently soothing and refining surface texture. Red seaweed and elderberry flower extract trigger collagen development and offer skin regenerating effects.
Regular price $28.50 Not what I paid
Now that I have it, boy was a very surprised just how smooth it really is!! You don’t need that much to exfoliate with, and its so gentle I have used it more than one or twice a week that you usually when you use a product like this.
The main ingredients are red seaweed, Elderberry Flower Extract and Sea Fennel. It has this really nice scent.. to me it smells like almonds. When it comes out of the tube it looks like toothpaste, and when you rub it in between your fingers you can feel this little tiny grains. The grains might be from the natural bamboo powder it in. It has sweet almond oil and Vitamin E in it as well. Which where the scent of almonds might be coming from.
They say on the box that because they care about the environment all their products are formulated with 100% natural plant oils and extracts from the sea. They never use animals for testing!
Its easy to use, after you have cleanse your face, you take about a quarter size of the Red Seaweed Gentle Exfoliator on your fingertips and massage in on your damp skin using circular movements. This rinse off and go onto the rest of your skincare routine. They say its for all skin types and for me it didn’t dry out my skin. Which is something I have to watch for, my skin is already dry enough I don’t want to add to it!
