KIMBERLY SAYER OF LONDON – In my experience, there aren’t many good options for gentle facial exfoliation. Products that really work either sting or leave my face feeling raw, while kinder, gentler products leave behind the flakes and roughness I was trying to get rid of in the first place. Needless to say I’m somewhat jaded when a product promising gentle facial exfoliation comes my way.
British export Kimberly Sayer of London has a Gentle Almond & Lavender Face Scrub ($26) that has changed both my mindset and my skincare routine! The primary exfoliant is ground almond meal, which I found extremely pleasant to use and gives the scrub the scent of marzipan. The product has lots of other wonderful components, as it is all-natural and made with certified organic ingredients (no animal testing either!). The yummy ingredients include fragrant lavender, shea butter, jojoba, aloe, oat extract and soothing essential oils. These contribute to the creaminess that make the scrub soothing without detracting from its effectiveness. While my dry, sensitive skin laps this product up, oily-skinned gals need not shy away as this scrub is intended for all skin types and promises to decongest pores in the process.
FINAL VERDICT: GGI (Gotta Get It) Kimberly Sayer’s Scrub is an effective and luxurious addition to any skincare regimen. It eliminates flakiness without any unpleasant side effects, and enhances makeup application by allowing your products to go on evenly. I am now a Kimberly Sayer fan for life, and look forward to trying all the other products in her line.
