Product Review (submitted on September 26, 2013):
Gentler on Face, Less Irritating on Acne
Love this! Before my skin suddenly decided to start getting cystic acne when I started college (and I believe before this product was even introduced!) I used to use ExfoliKate, which I loved. But when my skin broke out (and never went away), I had to stop using the product, as well as most other grainy exfoliators, because the combined effort of trying to dry out the pimples, exfoliate the dead skin off and rehydrate the new skin was overwhelming and left my face overly sensitive.
Fast forward a year and a half, to when I discovered the Acne version of ExfoliKate and I was in heaven! If I over-medicate my skin, this will still be a little irritating - I have to watch how often I use it when I'm using other treatments - but it is MUCH more gentle than its traditional counterpart, and for my money, I'd say it works just as well!
