As I mentioned in Wednesday’s post I’ve decided to start switching out some of the Paula’s Choice skin care products for others. I would like to mention that I’m not doing this because I dislike the Paula’s Choice products but because as a beauty blogger I need to try out other products as well. On Wednesday I switched out the Paula’s Choice BHA 9 for the StriVectin Advanced Retinol Pore Refiner, you can read my thoughts here. Today I’m switching out the Paula’s Choice Skin Recovery Exfoliant for the Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains.
The Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains claim to cleanse, exfoliate, and clarify all in one step. It does this by using natural cranberry seed to lift away any dirt, or makeup, on the surface and white rice bran to loosen any dry skin. Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains have no parabans, sulfates, or phthalates. Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains is also not tested on animals. The product is a grain that transforms into a gentle exfoliating cream when water is added to it. To use the Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains you simply pour a quarter sized amount into the palm of your hand and mix with a few drops of water ONLY. Once a smooth, foaming paste forms massage onto the face with gentle circular, sweeping motions. Finally, rinse with tepid water and pat dry.
Before I get into my thoughts I do want to mention that A. the product that I was went to review is a sample size not a full-size and B. I did not use this as a cleanse and exfoliate product like it claims it can be, instead I used it as just exfoliator. With those two things out of the way let’s get into what I thought about Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains. I did find that the Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains were very similar to the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, I reviewed that here. The Farmacy New Day Gentle Exfoliating Grains is a bit gentler but it’s packaging makes the powder product getting contaminated more likely. However, with the Dermalogica exfoliant sitting at $50 and the Farmacy sitting at $30 if you can be careful with the Farmacy packaging it is the better buy. If I didn’t have other products that do the exact same thing already in my collection I would be repurchasing this, however, for right now I’ll be using those up before I repurchase. If you’re someone who is looking for a gentle exfoliator or are looking for a cleanse and exfoliate in one step then this product is for you!
