Better skin feeling
This was amazing. Everything I was looking for.
I love this Jacqueline Piotaz exfoliator. It's powerful enough to give results in one ten-minute application, but it also does not irritate my highly sensitive skin. I thank Jacqueline Piotaz from the bottom of my heart for creating something without silicone or petroleum products -- and that actually works. The results are . . . wow. Once a week, you apply the exfoliator on clean, dry skin and then leave on for ten minutes. Rinse off with cool water. I experience mild burning on the drier areas of my face, but it lasts for only a few seconds. After I rinse it off, my face feels tight, invigorated, and smooth. The first time I used the exfoliator, I decided to wait to apply moisturizer to see if my skin reacted badly. Even after an hour, I experienced no redness or patchiness. My skin was better off than it would have been if I had washed and failed to moisturize. With moisturizer on top, the results are even better. If you're going to spend a lot of money on a skincare product, you should buy one that actually works. For me, because of all my chemical sensitivities, I'm glad to have found a product that I can use long-term.
This stings/burns a bit initially when applied to my freshly washed face. I don't find it painful, just 10-15 seconds it is a tad bit unpleasant. It's a very mild stinging burn when I first put it on. It doesn't make my face red though. The first time I used it, I grabbed a mirror when I felt it. I really wasn't sure about it! I was ready to wash it off and grab baking soda if I had to. (It feels a bit like a mild acid peel.) After I used it though, my skin felt drastically smoother- just perfectly smooth. Now I am used to that initial little sting and don't worry about it. It's not strong, and it seems to just be the product doing what it does. My skin has been looking great since I have been using this. I have tried several of the Piotaz products. This is my favorite.
