What is exfoliation and how often should you exfoliate your skin?
Exfoliation is a cosmetic practice of removing dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. As a result your skin looks much more smoother, softer and radiant. You will notice that some exfoliating products can even clean your pores too. Many people think that exfoliation benefits only the oily skin but it's actually great for every skin type! You can use gentle exfoliators daily, in the morning or in the evening before bed, or stronger exfoliators once a week. Always make sure to read the instructions of the product to find out how often you can use it! As a makeup artist I will advice to exfoliate your skin before applying your makeup. That way the foundation will settle better, last longer and your complexion will look smoother. Actually, one of the reasons why the complexion can look 'cakey' sometime is because the skin wasn't prepared properly.
I have mentioned before that I am a huge fan of the natural products, especially when it comes to skincare. If you follow me on Instagram then you probably remember that I posted picture of a box with products which I received from the brand. I have been using them since then and absolutely love this gentle exfoliator. It actually reminds me a lot of a product that I used to use couple of years ago - The Microdelivery Exfoliating Wash by Philosophy. If I have to compare them, their textures are similar and so is the end result - smooth, soft and radiant skin. The both can be used daily and don't leave a dry feeling on the skin. However, the ingredients and the price are very different. The exfoliator by Philosophy costs around AED 100 (28$) while the Khadi one costs only AED 33. If you have a look at the ingredients list you will be very happy to find out that the Face Wash by Khadi contains only natural ingredients like aloe vera, rose and pineapple and most important it is Paraben and SLS free. I have to mention as well that the product wasn't tested on animals and it's 100% vegan.
Overall, would I buy this product? Yes, definitely. I think that it's a great product on a great price!
The good news is that in February they will open their own store in Ibn Batuta Mall where you can try their products for yourself. If you live in the Gulf Region you can purchase them online from www.glamazle.com. (Sharing this information because I was asked from followers.)
Hope that was helpful xx
