Do you use a face scrub or polish in your skincare routine? Having BOTH dry & sensitive skin has always led me to mentally sing TLC's I don't want NO SCRUBS whenever I saw either. HaHaHa Scrubs were always too harsh and would leave my skin either red, irritated or with small patchy rashes. I've had better luck with polishers. Polishers are definitely more gentle. I've tried Laura Mercier's & Benefit's polishers (see here). However, I still could only use them once a week. Murad's Skin Smoothing Polish is brand new. There was something about it that caught my eye & made me want to try it. I think it was the pink color (HaHaHa) and for some reason it reminded me of strawberry yogurt or a strawberry smoothie for the skin (of course). LOL Let me start off by saying, this polish (to my nose) has a very light strawberry scent (or maybe I want it to). It's absolutely delightful. Also a little, goes a very long way (see my pictures below)! One little dab, covered my entire hand (and of course will cover your entire face & neck). So far, so good! This polish is very creamy (like a paste) and gentle on the skin. But don't take it as weak by any means! It definitely gets the job done. I've been using this 2-3 times a week and have had NO PROBLEMS whatsoever! 2-3 times a week people! That's unprecedented for me! The difference between the Murad and other 2 polishers I tried above was how my skin felt afterwards...SUPER CLEAN & HEALTHY LOOKING. The Murad polisher really seemed to get into my pores, sides of my nose and get those areas clean without my skin feeling stripped. My skin always has a nice glow afterwards. I love the way it felt on my face, neck and even shoulders. Murad, should really consider making a BODY polish exfoliator using this same formula (ok, maybe with a little more grit LOL). I would definitely purchase it. This polish also doesn't dry your skin out. I experienced no redness, irritation, flaking or dry patches. Every once in awhile, your skin just needs a very good cleaning. Also something to remove daily dead skin cells. I love Murad's peel and also this polisher. I found that both my skincare products and makeup performed better after using them. And what's so fabulous is, I can see ALL SKIN TYPES benefiting from this product (which is unusual)! So all of it's claims ARE true! Does it deeply exfoliate to leave skin soft and smooth? YES. Does it help relieve congested pores? YES. I'm very pleased with this product and will be adding it to my skincare regimen.
