    The best exfoliant i've ever used was plain old granulated sugar in water. Evens out my skin tone and makes it so soft.... even removes black heads!

    I use and love L'Oreal's ReFinish, a microdermabrasion kit. I have sensitive skin, but this does the job and doesn't irratate.

    i've been using Lush's Ocean Salt exfoliator, and it's worked better for me than anything in the past. it's interesting - smells a bit 'masculine', is made of various sizes of sea salt, vodka, lime and coconut. when you first buy it, you have to stir it all up very well because big chunks of salt sit on top. it's definitely not for someone with very sensitive skin - the salt can feel a little harsh when you're using it (although the salt dissolves as you rub, which prevents you from over-exfoliating), but unlike other exfoliators my skin isn't left stinging and i never break out afterwards. in fact, i haven't had a zit since i started using it. i think something in the formula is warding off clogged pores.

    I am so going to buy this. I am really poor at the minute so I need to not buy my usual dermalogica one and go for something a bit cheaper, and you have really made this sound ace!

    Weather, surface dehydration, not exfoliating often enough or ever :ninja:

    I use La Prairie's Cellular Microdermbrasion Cream, followed by the Cellular Softening and Balancing Lotion toner which has high anti-inflammatory properties. Loves it. Except you need to rinse the exfoliant off (because it has crushed pearl powder and diamonds) from the flow of a showerhead.

    i have ocean salt from lush as well, and i bought it like 2 months ago (the small tub) and i still have like half of it left!
    using it every day is wayy to harsh (for my skin at least) but once or twice a week make my skin lovely and smooth as glass!

    ^ the price for a big tub (a little under 9 oz.) is about $32... a pot half that size is about $18. it lasts a long time though - i had the small size for months before i ran out and invested in the larger size. i love this stuff! it's the only exfoliator that i can use on my face with confidence - and no fear of breakouts afterwards. i use it at most twice a week. :flower:

    i've been trying to find one of those Salux cloths locally but haven't had any luck - i may have to give up and order one online. :lol:
