Oqibo Skin Refining Exfoliator * // £23.95
Oqibo's Skin Refining Exfoliator is recommended to be used twice weekly after cleansing. Hmmm. With my
stupidly sensitive skin, I was wary of using it more than once a week, but I needn't have worried. It has tiny little exfoliating flecks, suspended in a rich creamy lotion, which is massaged into damp skin for 1-2 minutes (with a very light hand). You can just see the little magical particles in the last photo (excuse my mottled hand, the lighting was doing something very weird to it!) The exfoliating particles certainly do their job of exfoliating, leaving no dry patches or flakes, and the ingredients which give the product that creamy effect are super hydrating, making my skin feel soft, plumped and nourished after washing the product off. And all with absolutely no irritation, redness or sensitivity! After use my skin feels very clean, and the next day it is noticeably brighter and glowy-er, thanks to the essential minerals and marine extracts this little tube is packed full of. This exfoliator is on the pricey side at nearly £25, but it does everything I'd want an exfoliator to do: it's effective but very gentle, gives exfoliation and hydration (so many exfoliators just seem to strip the skin), and it didn't cause any adverse effects to my sensitive skin, which is quite an achievement!
