Jaclyn Smith Skincare Exfoliating Polish

Hey dears!

I'm almost done with this tube so before I finally run out of it, I'm sharing a quick review. :P

Jaclyn Smith Skincare Exfoliating Polish
I got it for free from Lazada a long time ago and I've only used it a few months back because I was finishing a different exfoliating product then.

Anyway, before I used this, I wasn't aware of the brand at all. I wasn't even familiar with Jaclyn Smith who turns out to be one of the actresses who played one of Charlie's Angels. I've already shared a press release about this and you can know more about the brand on that post. To keep it short and simple, this skincare range is a labor of love from Jaclyn Smith and her husband. She takes care of her skin with the right skincare routine and having a husband who's a doctor and understands chemistry, supported her to share this skin care to others. And together, they made the products possible so that more people can experience a skincare routine like hers.


This product is an exfoliating polish. Pretty much just like a scrub that I use twice to thrice (I have oily skin) a week to remove the dirt and dryer surface layer of my skin.

Here's a brief description of the product from the press release:

"Her collection includes the world-renowned, Jacklyn Smith Exfoliating Polish, an effective exfoliating cleanser with micro-abrasion beads, formulated to gently remove dry surface skin cells for immediate freshness and radiance..."


From Lazada's website:

Tips: Like any physical exfoliator this product should be used to gently "polish" the skin, not as a scrub. Although exfoliation is extremely beneficial at removing unwanted accumulation of dead surface skin cells to reveal a smoother fresher face, don't overdo it. Listen to your skin, if it is becoming red or irritated you are either "scrubbing" too hard, or exfoliating too often. Some people may need to exfoliate different parts of their face with different frequencies. For instance, if your face is a combination of dry and oily, you might exfoliate the dry areas once a week, whereas in your oily areas ("T" zone), you may exfoliate more frequently.

Here's the product.

And a closeup when slightly smudged

This is a cleanser with microbeads. It pretty much reminds me of a product from Kiehl's, but this one feels like it has bigger beads and creamier consistency. The scent is very mild and hardly noticeable when rinsed off. 

My problem with this is that it doesn't show my the ingredients list. It's not in the tube, but good thing the website has it. I'm no expert in chemistry but in reading the list you can see that this product have micro beads that can be harmful to marine life because these passes through the filtration system and go to our oceans. It also contains alcohols and parabens that can be issues to some people.

During the months that I've used this, it didn't break me out, no irritations happened, and it did the job of keeping my face clean and removing dry flakes and dead skin. My face feels softer after rinsing. It's not the best I've tried but it does a satisfying job. It's still quite pricey for me though. :P

Have you tried the Jaclyn Smith Skincare Exfoliating Polish? What are your thoughts?


Cheers,
DAWN
