I am a little bit obsessed with this product – it’s the Zelens Micro-Refiner Bi-Active Exfoliator. This exfoliator is not missing any tricks as it works by combining enzymatic exfoliation with microdermabrasion which is something that really appeals to me!
Zelens Micro-Refiner Bi-Active Exfoliator Review
Zelens Micro-Refiner Bi-Active Exfoliator find it at Space NK HERE & Beauty Bay HERE
I actually met Dr Marko Lens, creator of Zelens skincare, a few weeks back at a brilliant intimate event where a few of us had the opportunity to chat skincare and products with him. It was incredibly enlightening.
I asked Dr Lens about the benefits of enzymatic exfoliation (chemical, so no bits) over the mechanical exfoliation (use of granular products), and he said that for optimum results, both elements need to be employed.
Dr. Marko Lens
In short, he explained that enzymatic exfoliation loosens the dead skin cells by dissolving it’s links to the skin, and then microdermabrasion is needed to effectively sweep the dead skin cells away.
The Zelens Micro-Refiner does all of this and more as it also contains an advanced hydrating complex to help rehydrate skin. I pop it on to my face and neck at bedtime, leave it on while I brush my teeth (or some other bedtime activity) then gently massage it into my skin for a minute or so then remove it with a warm flannel.
It leaves my skin super hydrated, feeling smooth and looking bright and glowing. Love this stuff! My other skincare products work like a dream after I use this.
Zelens Micro-Refiner Bi-Active Exfoliator costs £55 but you only need a small amount so it’ll last a while. Plus it’s 2 in 1!! Find it at Space NK and Beauty Bay.
