I use a variety of daily exfoliants so when the time came to shop for a new facial scrub, I wanted something that was gentle and yet effective enough to slough off all my dead skin cells. It so happened my sister was in Paris and I asked her to pick up a bunch of Avene products for me while she was there and this was one of them.
The gel texture helps prevent dryness while two exfoliants together with a skin smoothing agent work together to remove impurities and skin imperfections. The thing I love about Avene products is the high concentration of Avene thermal spring water (which makes this very ideal for sensitive skin) – giving my skin comfort and a soothing feel after every use.
My skin felt cleaner and looked better wih each use. Regular exfoliation also helps ensure your skin products get absorbed better into your skin. My sister started using this scrub in Paris and she loved it so much, she went out and bought another bottle for me to replace the one she used.
