I’m going to try and be balanced in this review of Pai Organic Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator but damn do I love this! Having sensitive skin means that often exfoliators are too damaging and cause further irritation. Pai states that this exfoliator is ideal for sensitive and problem skin, and that includes eczema sufferers, redness and acne, of which these latter two I do suffer from. I’m also prone to congestion so a good exfoliation is ideal for getting things going and making skin healthy looking.
Pai Organic Kukui & Jojoba Bead Skin Brightening Exfoliator (phew, bit of a mouthful) contain perfectly cylindrical spheres, this causes less irritation than other exfoliators. These spheres are suspended in a thick gel that contains omegas 3 & 6, vitamins A, D and E as well as other “exotic oils”. It smells gorgeous, a gentle citrus smell. It also feels lovely on the skin, you can really feel it giving the skin a good cleanse while being gentle. There’s plenty of exfoliator beads in the recommended two pumps, which is the perfect amount for a really good scrub of the whole face. There’s no stinging or roughness, it’s thorough while still being kind to sensitive skin. When you rinse with water the gel turns into a lush milk that leaves your skin super-soft, glowing and refined. My skin looks refreshed and well better. There’s also no tightness after using this as it doesn’t contain detergent or alcohol.
I think this is a brilliant exfoliator for sensitive and acne prone skin. It cleanses deeply and thoroughly without dryness or irritation. After use skin is soft, bright and smooth. Extra points for being cruelty-free, vegan friendly and certified organic by the Soil Association.
