One of my favorite skin care rituals is exfoliating. From body scrubs to face scrubs to lip scrubs, I love the feeling of fresh and rejuvenated skin after a good exfoliating. The newest addition to my skincare routine has quickly become one of my favorites. The Reviva Labs Pomegranate/Lactic Acid Exfoliant is an all natural product that incorporates lactic acid and herbal extracts that help remove dead skin. Not only will the antioxidant properties of pomegranate help prevent skin damage but the allantoin, soy and peptides treat past skin damage. Reviva Labs was the first to introduce exfoliation to America and has been cruelty free since 1973! Needless to say, Reviva Labs’ claim to fame is exfoliation, and the many years they have had to work on their formulas has paid off with this product.
The exfoliant comes in a tub of 2oz and has a creamy consistency. There are visible flecks in the product which are the oregano and thyme.
I apply a thin layer to my face after cleansing, wait a few minutes for it to dry, and then use my fingers to rub it off of my skin, finishing by splashing lukewarm water onto my face to wash off anything left over. You can really feel the product working when you rub it off, and it’s kind of satisfying to see everything falling into the sink as opposed to just washing away with your normal cleansing scrub.
While it’s extremely effective in removing dead skin, the exfoliant is still a gentle formula that works great with sensitive and problem skin. It doesn’t interfere with other skincare products you incorporate in your routine, and it doesn’t further irritate problem areas. Contrary to other reviews, I couldn’t detect much of a scent at all, which I personally favor because I have sensitive areas on my face that react to fragrance. Another thing that I absolutely LOVE about this exfoliant is that it doesn’t dry out my skin! I’m a combo girl and have a hard time finding skincare products that won’t leave my skin begging for moisture. After using the exfoliant I’m in no rush to apply moisturizer as my face feels balanced and refreshed.
After only two weeks of using the Pomegranate/Lactic Acid Exfoliant, I can feel a major difference in the texture of my skin. Moisturizer, liquid foundation and powders are gliding over my skin much easier than before; it feels smooth and more evenly toned. I’ve been battling some stubborn breakouts lately and using this lets me treat myself to a five-minute facial without making problems worse. I would recommend this product across skin types for anyone who is looking for a great way to rejuvenate your face!
You can buy the Reviva Labs Pomegranate/Lactic Acid Exfoliant for around $12 online.
