An Old Friend and A New Love - Enavose Probiotics Exfoliance Gommage & Ren Gentle Exfoliating CleanserMonday, September 07, 2015
Motherhood has been pretty harsh on me, especially ripping off my time to immerse in my usual skincare routine. In the past, there would be time for facial masks, a luxury that I try to find time to enjoy these days.
However, no matter how hectic my life is, there are a few things in my skincare regime that will never be replaced - a good cleanser, exfoliator, moisturiser and sun block. Almost 3 weeks ago, Luxola has very generously sent two exfoliators for me to try - the Enavose 1st Line Probiotics Exfoliance Gommage and Ren Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser.
There is a reason why I named this post "An Old Friend and A New Love" - I am no stranger to Enavose's line of products, from their Floracomfort Micellar Cleansing Water to their Youth Guard Cream, Enavose's high quality range of products is something that I always have faith in.
With that said, Enavose's Probiotics Exfoliance Gommage is one of my favourite exfoliators because unlike usual exfoliators, the Exfoliance Gommage does not contain any microbeads.
Enavose believes that repetitive friction from the regular exfoliators could actually result in micro-abrasions on the skin and eventually deepen into wrinkles over time. As such, instead of using microbeads, Enavose uses advanced formula Probiotics to loosen dead skin cells and unblock comedones.
Simply apply a 20-cents size amount on DRY skin and rub in circular motion - you can see dead cells visibly dislodge and skin becomes softer with just one session.
Having used the Enavose Exfoliance Gommage for many years, what I can say is that this product delivers. It doesn't just exfoliate, it hydrates as well so your skin doesn't feel like it is all dry and taut after wash.
Its antioxidants from the plant extracts also protects the skin against free radical damage and probiotics used in this formula strengthens the skin's outermost layer against aggressors such as dust, sunrays etc.
If that is not enough to impress you, this Enavose product is 2014 Women's Weekly Best Beauty Buys winner and 2012 Bazaar Beauty Awards winner as well.
REN's Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is officially my new love. Even though it contains jojoba wax microbeads, I feel that it is still very gentle to my skin, even when I exfoliate through swollen, active pimples.
The jojoba microbeads will slowly dissolve as you scrub, and when you don't feel anymore microbeads on your skin, it means that the exfoliation process is completed. I thought this was brilliant because many a times, we don't use exfoliators with microbeads because we don't know when to stop - so we go on and on and on and eventually over-scrubbing our face and cause abrasions.
Having used this weekly for the past 3 weeks, I feel that my skin is soft and carries a layer of "oil" - I can't really explain it but you know how it feels when you freshly apply a layer of moisturiser over your face? It is the same feeling.
Both of these exfoliators are non-drying to me skin and are both gentle enough for me, who have combination and slightly sensitive skin. It removes the sebum from my oily forehead well but does not dry out my dry cheeks.
