Some skin therapists swear by granule exfoliation while others think enzymatic exfoliation is the bee’s knees. What’s the difference between the two? Simple, granule exfoliation is with little beads in a product that when rubbed on the skin remove dead skin cells. Enzymatic exfoliation can be more gentle through ingredients in the product, like fruit acid, that gently exfoliate away dead skin cells.
I recently tried my first home-use product that exfoliates the skin with it’s ingredients rather than scrubbing the skin. It’s nothing like a peel or anything close to it so don’t get confused. This product simply has ingredients in it that remove dead skin cells and revitalises the skin.
What did I review?
DermaPolish by DermaFix – a gentle daily enzymatic exfoliant for the face.
DermaFix Cosmeceutical Skin Care is a proudly South African brand and provides advanced products specialising in anti-ageing, hyperpigmentation, acne, scarring and stretch marks, embracing new proven technology as they develop.
What did I think?
DermaPolish comes in a powder form and when mixed with water makes a paste that you rub into your skin and wash off. I loved the smell of tea tree in the product as well as the tingly fresh feeling afterward.
The ingredients are filled with a blend of organic enzyme rich powders, which micro-exfoliates and cleanses the skin. DermaPolish is packed in dry form to maintain its effectiveness and freshness and water activates the enzymes together with hydroxy acids, smoothing, softening and brightening the skin, whist also lightly exfoliating dead cells away and accelerates cell renewal.
- Licorice and papain extract lightens and brightens the skin.
- Colloidal Oatmeal balances the pH of the skin and accelerates barrier repair.
Two options for use:
- Decant one teaspoon of DermaPolish into the palm of the hand and activate by adding an equal amount of water. Lightly massage onto the skin’s surface, and then rinse with tepid water.
- Mix DermaPolish with water to form a paste, apply to the skin’s surface and leave on as a brightening masque for 10—15 minutes.
I didn’t use any of their other products in the range so this review isn’t intended to be “I had fantastamagorical results” kind of review. The purpose of this review s to tell you I’ve been using the product for a few months everyday and have really enjoyed my smoother skin as a result.
What does it cost?
R260 (50g) from their online store, however, prices may vary depending on which clinic you purchase from.
FYI – I’ve been using DermaPolish since April 2015 and I still have more than half the amount of powder in the bottle… it lasts a really long time.
