I am a huge fan of exfoliators. The right ones can really help keep skin clear and also ensure you get the maximum benefit from your other skincare products. Here’s a look at the Caudalie Buffing Cream Duo which features the relaunched and repackaged Gentle Buffing Cream and the Deep Cleansing Exfoliator.
So this little duo means you can choose the kind of exfoliation you want, when you need it. The Gentle Buffing Cream offers a very gentle solution and the Deep Exfoliating Cleanser offers a deeper exfoliation. Both products are formulated with 97% ingredients of natural origin and they work to cleanse the skin, remove dead skin cells, brighten the complexion and prepare the skin to maximise the benefits of serums and moisturisers. They are suitable for all skin types.
Caudalie Buffing Cream
This one is perfect for sensitive skin. It gently removes impurities and dead skin cells and leaves you with softer-feeling and brighter skin. It has a lovely creamy texture that uses grape oil and acacia honey to cleanse and comfort. It smells so good too. It is fish-friendly because the scrubby bits are gentle natural jojoba microbeads. You can use it once or twice a week on wet skin and massage it in circular motions. For best balancing results, focus on the T-zone.
Caudalie Deep Cleansing Exfoliator
This one is a bit more intensive and particularly suited to combination and oily skin types, although all skin types can use this. It has been formulated to purify and refine skin texture without stripping moisture. It is much scrubbier than the Gentle Buffing Cream but still gentle. It is really fresh and revitalising – the menthol and grapefruit is amazing. It uses exfoliating micro-grains, derived from corn, to deeply cleanse away impurities and clean out pores. Also, there’s hydrating grape pulp to condition the skin.
