Product of the Month: Murad AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser

photo (7)

As the weather grows colder you may notice your skin growing dryer and duller. One of the ways to combat these unwelcome changes is by using a good exfoliator.

Now you definitely want to be choosey about which one you use. If you can find one that is totally chemical (no scrubbies)  that’s best, but if not search for one that boasts round microbead type scrubbies. If the little granules are rough, it will prove harsh on your skin causing microscopic scratches that lead to irritation and breakouts.

With this product you get the best of both worlds. AHA (alpha hydroxy acids) and BHA (beta hydroxy acids) are comprised of organic acids such as Salicylic (willow tree), Glycolic (sugar cane), and Lactic (milk). So don’t let the word ‘chemical’ or ‘acid’ scare you!

For manual exfoliation this product uses nicely rounded Jojoba beads that offer hydration as well.

It doesn’t really have a smell, it bubbles up nicely, and you seriously only need a pea size amount!

You can use it up to three times a week; I would suggest in the evening because you don’t want to expose your nice fresh skin to the sun because it will burn easier. Also, do a little prep wash before you use it for better results!

It contains 6.75 fl. oz. and you can get it at Sephora for $36 or Murad’s website for the same price. I know that is ALOT of money but I’ve had this product for a couple months now and as you can see I hardly put a dent in it. So trust me, it’s worth it!

I hope you found this info helpful! Do you have any scrub favorites? Please share below!
