Not All Exfoliants are the Same: Introducing the ExfoliPowder

Posted by on in Product Reviews

For years, I struggled with skin issues and in the past year and a half I've finally overcome my blemishes and have clear skin. But now my new skin obsession has begun and I’m on a never-ending quest for more radiant skin.

I've found a few miraculous serums that have definitely helped me to achieve that lit from within glow but have yet to find the ideal exfoliant. Exfoliating is the key to sloughing off dull skin cells and unveiling the radiant skin underneath so you can imagine my frustration when the scrubs I was trying weren't doing the trick.

Having given up I settled for my Clarisonic, which I use three times a week to exfoliate. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my Clarisonic, but using it daily is too harsh for my sensitive skin even with the sensitive skin brushes.

Enter the Amarté ExfoliPowder. At first I was a bit hesitant to give it a try. The fact that the exfoliator came in powdered form worried me. It brought me back to elementary school art class and all I could think was Powder + Water = Paste. But I was wrong and pleasantly surprised. The texture is creamy once activated with water and works up to a luxurious lather.

The refined, plant seed-based exfoliant gently removes dry skin that’s blocking the smooth, radiant face underneath. I love that the formula is delicate enough for daily use so my skin is constantly being refreshed without being irritated.

I tend to have a bit of red in my skin tone and that has completely evened out after using the product for a few weeks and the sunspots I accumulated from roasting in the sun when I was younger without sunscreen (the horror!) are beginning to fade. My skin feels completely smooth and the powder-based formula also helps with oil control. My face stays shine-free throughout the day.

So what is Amarté and where did they come from? Find out more about the brand here. Here’s one fun fact I found from their website: the word amarté precisely translated means ‘to love you’. The Amarté Skin Care line took that one step further by designing their logo to be two interwoven hearts in harmony expressing Amarté’s motto - ‘Love yourself. Love your skin.’ LOVE that!
