A full sized 55ml tube of Linden Leaves Radiant Exfoliating Wash was the Day 22 gift in the 2019 Beautiful Surprises Advent Calendar.
The cardboard box is printed with vegetable inks and is 100% recyclable. The clear plastic tube inside is also recyclable, and it holds the grainy peach coloured gel wash. The exfoliating granules are little jojoba beads that gently exfoliate by lifting away dead skin cells. This exfoliator also contains tangerine to help tone and clear congested skin, reduce scarring and spots; aloe vera to hydrate and minimize irritation; and Kowhai extract to soothe and cleanse. It is suitable for all skin types.
To use, I simply dampen my face and neck before massaging a pea-sized amount over my skin, and then rinse well. It’s an extremely gentle exfoliator that could easily be used on a daily basis for oily skin types. It’s also gentle enough to be used by those with very dry or sensitive skin, without having to worry about it irritating or ‘tearing’ at your skin, like a more abrasive exfoliator would.
I have oily skin, and I wasn’t overly wowed by this product. My skin definitely needs a slightly more abrasive exfoliator, but as a facial cleanser, this wasn’t bad. It cleansed well without leaving my skin feeling stripped, tight or dry. But as an exfoliator, it was rather disappointing. I won’t be purchasing another tube.
If you’d like to try Linden Leaves Radiant Exfoliating Wash for yourself, it’s available from Farmers stores, selected pharmacies, and online.
