your thinking of the Clarins gentle peeling scrub. i actually got that as a gift and to be honest i really don't like it. i prefer the gentle buffinf cream from caudalie as it is way more effective and gentle. use this on a damp face and scrub is small circular motions, be gentle, if you have sensitive skin you can also mix this in with a cream cleanser

Hi, This cleanser is meant to be used with water or you can even add a dime size amount to your cleanser and use together. You then rinse with water and follow with the rest of your regimen.

I was told in-store to put the buffing cream on my face and then rub it off. But I have dry and sensitive skin so I wet my face and then scrub it on and wash it off like a face wash. Still does the job! If you feel like you need a little more exfoliation grab a sponge and use that to scrub it onto your face.

No. You apply this to clean, wet or damp skin, rub it in, and rinse it back off. I don't know what one you dry buff with, but I wouldn't think that would be good for the skin on your face.
This is effective and gentle, rinses clean, and won't damage your skin.

Absolutely not. Must use with water, your first time may leave your skin a little red from the natural exfoliators. If you live in a dry climate I recommend using it twice a week in the shower, thus you make sure you wash all of the product off. MAKE SURE YOU DO THIS, for you will irritate your skin. But this is the best product I have ever came across for exfoliators. And as well only use less than a dime sized amount each time.
Hope this was good advice. :D

Yes, that is what I understand and how I have been using it, but it does not seem to matter much if you wait very long. I have found the main issue is not having your skin be very moist when you start. I rinse it and leave it just a bit damp, then start rubbing in the cream. I only wait about 10 secs to let it dry.

No, it is meant to be used with water as an exfoliator. You are thinking of some sort of mask--many brands make masks.

Question
Can you clarify the ingredients of this product?
The product detail indicates it is formulated without parabens, but there are parabens listed in the ingredients.

The tube I have doesn't list any parabens in the ingredients and there is a bold section of the instructions which states:
"0% parabens, phenoxyethanol, artificial colorings, mineral oils... No testing on animals."

That may have been an old ingredient list for an old formula, I've been unable to find any parabens on any of their current ingredient lists or boxes. I wouldn't be surprised, companies make little changes like that to their formulas all the time.

I just checked my tube/bottle of this and it does not list any parabens in the ingredients. It also says 0% parabens on the back as well. So I don't think it has any in it.

The Gommage Sauvignon scrub was discontinued several years ago. Try the Deep Cleansing Exfoliator. It provides a strong exfoliation and refreshes the skin with menthol

Question
Has anyone with sensitive skin used this? I have a form of excema around my nose and many things I have tried will irritate this condition.
Need something to exfoliate dry skin (especially around my nose) without irritating my condition that is similar to ecsema (sp?). Loved the Boscia skin polish, but it was too drying in the winter. Does this dry out your skin? Thanks!

It's definitely not drying. If anything it adds moisture and feels like a moisturizer with exfoliating beads.

I have sensitive skin due to the exposure and frequent application of topical acne creams/medications and this product polishes my skin well while hydrating it too. Its very very delicate and it does the job of a scrub. For someone with a severe skin sensitivity I recommend using it once a week maybe? But Caudelie is a great brand altogether for sensitive/delicate skin

Question
Texture of Exfoliant?
I am becoming a big fan of this brand, and wanted to know if anyone can offer a description of the texture of the exfoliant in this product. Big scrubbies (like the old apricot seed type) or more fine and small? I've been using MD Formulations Face & Body Scrub (very fine) but have noticed some recent irritation. Thanks for your help!

Caudalie's gentle buffing cream has very small scrubbies in it. I believe they are micro size jojoba beads. Very fine texture and still effective. They hold up well and don't dissolve away.

It's got a fine, mostly creamy texture. You can feel the scrubbies but they're very light, more like a light sand than the coarser apricot scrubbies.

Texture is a fine grit. Feels similar to Dermalogica Microfoliant when applied.
