Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator

I've been using Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator on and off since 2004. It's a product that I always come back to everytime my skin needs gentle exfoliation. It's especially good for those times when my fussy skin turns more sensitive and looks more rubbish than usual.

Let's see, what do I love most about it? The rosy scent, the rounded spheres that exfoliates without scratching my tender skin. I find that it works very well as a morning cleanser, too.

Overall, my experience agree with what Elemis says: "Hydrating Absolute of Moroccan Rose and smooth micro-spherical Jojoba beads very gently exfoliate, leaving skin silky soft to the touch. Gentle enough to be used daily, Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator is a subtly fragranced gel exfoliator, ideal for all complexions, including the most sensitive."

It's always a good thing when a product really does what it says. Needless to say I've re-purchased it numerous times, I can't remember a time living without it. I even took some with me when I lived in New Zealand and Australia (prior to Elemis' launch in OZ). :)

Verdict: my only dependable gentle exfoliator. Another winner from one of my favourite skincare brands.

I love products with a rosy scent!!

I'm doing fine I suppose haha! But I might end it early. There are a lot of sales going on, and I'd prefer to save some money and get what I need now rather than buying stuff once they're over :[

I'm glad that you're still on the No Buy bandwagon! It must have been a tough 1.5months haha ;D

What are you eying in those Boots catalogues?

Hello my dear Flamingo! I love Elemis products, I think they're generally very dependable and effective! And rose scent? Definitely a plus! Be careful not to scrub too hard or your face will disappear...:-P xx
