What is the exfoliating factor?
One of the reviewers says that the active soil complex is the exfoliating property. I've used this for over a month and do not feel or see the exfoliating effects. My question is, then, how does this differ from the daily facial cleanser which also has the active soil complex.
A few of the exfoliants I see in this product are kaolin, starch from rice and tapioca, as well as lemon peel. Kaolin clay and the starches perform a double duty as they have been known to absorb excess oil from the skin. You also get mother natures's skin soothing, anti-aging, and antioxidant properties of essential oils and plant extracts plus the added benefits of Active Soil Complex.
Most of all, makes this product extraordinary is that you can customize its application according to your need. You may reduce the amount of water you use according to the amount of exfoliation you need. Less water means more exfoliation. For morning cleansing, I wet my face and hands, place a small dollop of powder on my palm and with my other wet hand, add some more water until its like a wet paste then apply it to my face. For evening, I only add 2-4 drops of water keeping it at a pastey powdery consistency for more exfoliating. After each use, with skin feeling soft and renewed, I follow it with the Purely Nourishing Mousturizer and treat any potential and current breakouts with Blemish Therapy. And, along with PrimeTime creating an even smoother canvas for my morning BareMinerals makeup regimen.
