I’m not talking about the band.
And I’m not talking about that really cute movie that came out in the 90’s.
I’m talking about the most amazing thing that has happened to my dead skin cells since…ever.
OK so a little back story here.
As a makeup artist who gets her hands on hundreds of faces the biggest concerns I have are with skin. So often it’s dehydrated and in need of exfoliation. I’m ALWAYS singing the praises of having a good moisturizer and using it religiously and also not stripping your skin in the first place to cover the whole moisture thing but I’ve been stressing about a good recommendation for the exfoliation part.
I recommended a PMD machine but the price isn’t very wallet friendly and it’s a little harsh.
Aside from that I really hadn’t had anything that wowed me in the dead skin department.
Until my girl Missy sent me this exfoliating “aqua gel“:
She always sends me her new favorite things that she’s selling at her Pop-up shop but this one had a note on it that it was her favorite of the favorites. Which peaked my interest. I went right in the bathroom and tried it and OH MY HEAVENS TO BETSEYS.
Words that I have used to describe it so far:
A miracle. Crazy. Life Altering. Weird. Incredible. Gross. Voodoo.
And listen, I usually take weeks or even months of vetting a skincare product before sharing it but this time after just a couple of weeks I felt like I was sitting on a gold mine and I couldn’t take one more minute without telling you guys about it. In fact, I’m pretty disappointed in those of you who already knew about it and didn’t tell me. Doesn’t our friendship mean anything to you!?
It completely removes my dead skin and it isn’t one bit painful or rough on the skin. You just apply it to the surface of the skin. Wait a couple minutes. Then Rub your skin in circular motions. You will start to feel your removed skin under your fingers. Rinse thoroughly. Be floored over how clear and smooth your skin is.
(yes, I even do my mirror face while washing it. The dorkiest.)
If you don’t believe me just look at all these amazon reviewers. ( you might see a comment that says it isn’t actually your dead skin you feel as you are rubbing your face but I did test this with a latex glove as the reviewer says and no it did not ball up at all. Not to mention it balls up much less each time I use it and regardless one way or another it’s exfoliating my skin. I know how that feels:)
I’m so thrilled to finally have an answer for getting a good exfoliation. Use 1-3 times a week depending on your needs and don’t forget to follow with a good moisturizer!
