Exfolimate is an Australian product that I was sent over to review. I'm very impressed with myself at just how dedicated I've become to my skincare regime, considering this was non-existent till a month or so ago. Having not really suffered from any major skin problems in the past, I thought I'd be fine with just washing the face! However, it's only recently that I've started noticing some abnormal breakouts of small spots and redness dotted all over my face. Nothing too prominent but enough for me to question if I should look after my skin more. The answer? Well why not!
Exfolimate is described as being the 'ultimate tool' to give you younger, fresher looking and feeling skin. Our skin actually sheds dead skin cells every day. Most of us shed one million dead skin cells a day! I'm sorry - what?!
This statistic definitely had me feeling a little weirded out but I suppose we're all in the same beauty boat here. This beauty tool is designed to gently exfoliate the face and body and should be used while the skin is wet, so ideally in the bath or shower. The instructions recommend you actually use the product towards the end of your bath/shower. By using gentle pressure, you glide the tool along the contours of your body at a 90-degree angle.
Now as you glide the tool along, you're meant to check the blade for any residue left behind. Now as I'd used a tea tree scrub before, I may have had some residue left on my skin but boy I wasn't expecting the off greenish gunk that went onto the blade. Who knew?! The tool is a little bit daunting when you think about running a sharp blade along your skin but the actual blade feels blunt on the skin and used carefully, this tool is pretty easy to use whilst showering. I decided to just try it on my face for the first time as I was a little reserved to try it on the rest of my body. I don't think I'd fully gone over all of my face as I was conscious of only running the tool over my skin three times (which is what is recommended). However, next time I'll probably section off parts of the face (I know, that sounds weird), so that I'm covering all of it rather than gliding it here and there.
The Exfolimate comes with a handy red bracelet which can hang easily on your shower head, allowing it to dry off. I've decided though that I'll be wiping mine down with a towel just to avoid any rusting of the blade. They stock this beauty tool on various online retailers but you can get yours from Amazon here. At first glance it doesn't seem to have made any difference to my skin but I shall keep you updated in future blog posts if this has made a big change to the look of my skin or not.
