[Review] Clarins Gommage Exfoliant Peau Neuve – Smoothing Body Scrub For a New Skin with Bamboo Powders

Standard

I love Clarins products. Yes, they are considered a splurge and somehow I ended up with this body scrub because my sister decided she didn’t want it (cos of the hefty price tag) after I have already bought it. Hmm, 50 bucks on a body scrub? I could probably find something much lesser, like my favourite Soap & Glory Flake Away (note: the recent tub I bought was of lesser quality somehow, very disappointing)

Exfoliating your skin is an essential step for a beautiful body and with Smoothing Body Scrub For a New Skin, it’s also a genuine skin renewing treatment. Thanks to a dual exfoliating and “conditioning” action, it eliminates a dull appearance and provides skin with all it needs to be beautiful. This is the result of a combination of natural bamboo powders and soothing and protective plant extracts.

To eliminate a dull appearance, Bamboo Powders & Moringa extract
Bamboo powders are microbeads of natural silica obstained from the substance collected from the plant stems. In perfect affinity with the skin, they have a gentle exfoliating action which eliminates dead skin cells and rough skin. The extract of Moringa – a tree from Africa whose seeds are used to purify water – removes accumulated toxins.

To provide it with all it needs to be beautiful, Mimosa Tenuiflora, Liquorice & Shea
Liquorice and Mimosa Tenuiflora, the Mexican “skin tree” recognised for its exceptional repairing benefits, soothe and protect skin against irritation. Shea maintains the balance of the hydrolipidic film and envelops skin in a delicate veil of softness, to ensure comfort for all skin types, even dry & sensitive skin.

To be used once or twice a week, on dry or damp clean skin. Massage in, concentrating on elbows, knees and heels. Rinse well with warm water.

I squeezed a little out onto my skin and there aren’t any visible exfoliating beads. Upon spreading and closer inspection, you can make out the fine bits. I think they must be the bamboo powders. It is densely packed with these beads, so you’ll get a good scrub leaving you with clean (no oily residue) smooth skin that is soft and bouncy to the touch. It’s somewhat like a micro exfoliant that is strong (irony). And like all clarins products, this smells heavenly.
