Algenist Multi-Perfecting Detoxifying Exfoliator

What it is:A clay-based, oil-free exfoliator formulated with Algal Earth to exfoliate and detoxify skin, remove impurities, and visibly refine pores. What it is formulated to do:This clay-based, oil-free exfoliator lifts away impurities and visibly refines pores. It is formulated with an exfoliating granular mineral from algae to gently resurface and visibly diminish pore size. Multi-perfecting ingredients (salicylic acid and oligosaccharides) renew the skin surface for a brighter, more even skintone, leaving the skin feeling smooth and looking luminous. What it is formulated WITHOUT:- Parabens- Sulfates - Phthalates What else you need to know:This product is formulated without triclosan, petrochemicals, synthetic dyes, and GMOs. It is dermatologist tested, for all skin types, non-comedogenic, and oil-free. While researching microalgae for renewable energy solutions, a team of biotechnology scientists in San Francisco unexpectedly discovered Alguronic Acid (patented), a powerful compound responsible for regenerating and protecting the microalgae cell. Combining Alguronic Acid with powerful, targeted active ingredients, Algenist skincare helps support the skin’s cell regeneration processes to deliver visible antiaging benefits for youthful and radiant looking skin. Research results:In comparison testing, Alguronic Acid outperformed other well-known active antiaging ingredients, demonstrating superior antiaging benefits. Average results measured following an in vitro test with Alguronic Acid: - 55% increase in cellular regeneration - 32% increase in elastin synthesis - 26% decrease in melanin production Following self-assessment of 100 women, immediately after use: - 94% of subjects saw removal of rough, dull skin - 92% of subjects saw significantly smoothed skin texture Within 10 days of use (three times per week): - 92% of subjects saw impurities removed - 91% of subjects saw brightening of dull skin

I have not used the one you mentioned but the texture of the algenist one is amazing. Even though it is an exfoliatior it doesn't irritate the skin. I feel like it gives the amount of exfoliation needed.

I've used that walnut scrub as well, but this algeniat one works better for me and it's great, it feels soft as it exfoliates and isn't as harsh add the walnut screen

The Walnut scrub is a lot thicker and the granules are larger. This is very fine and light weight and gives you a really gentle scrub but still leaves skin very smooth and glowing. Also great for declogging pores. If you're unsure just sample it.

I prefer the OH walnut scrub to this one. This one has fewer grains and lacks the refreshing, natural-feeling finish of the OH scrub. My favorite is the fresh soy exfoliant, which is slightly more gentle and less drying than the OH walnut, but does a great job exfoliating.

is this a solution for whiteheads?
im a guy and I have a solid skin care routine that involves weekly chemical peels(70% glycolic acid) at my favorite spa and I'm looking for an at home exfoliator to take care of my clogged pores similar to white heads or ingrown hairs or razor bumps, do you think this is my best option?

This product is good for clearing out pores, but in my experience, the best thing to de-clog pores is the FirmX Peeling Gel from PeterThomasRoth. It's a fruit enzyme exfoliator and I find it's one of the few things that can really unclog the pores on my nose.

please use this. although my skin is more glowing and brighter after using this product what I love most about it is that it unclogs my pores!!!! I haven't had a blemish since I've been using this product. when I started using this I did it 3 times a week and now I use it once a week for maintenance. I love it!

Is this product just for your face?
My doctor said I need to exfoliate all of my skin. Is this the right product, or is there something else that would be better? Thank you for your help!

This product is made for the face. You are welcome to use it on your body, however it would not last you long as it is a small size. To view our body scrubs, please click here >
