For the last 5 months I have been using the Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish as my in shower and only facial exfoliator.
The Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish should be used when your face is damp, which instantly gets brownie points with me as it means I can include it as apart of my shower routine.
I want to say straight away, that if you have sensitive skin, you probably are not going to enjoying using this product. That is only because of the fact that the exfoliator is actually very harsh. I would not use this more than once a week because you would then be damaging your skin. I only tend to use this when I feel like my face is in need of a real deep clean. Which is generally after a hard day of work or I am in the mood to pamper myself. While this is a harsh exfoliator I have never had any issues with my skin from it. My skin did not break out, nor did the texture change after using it for 3+ months.
Another bonus I find with this product is that you do not need a lot of product to cover your face. I generally find with skin products I need to use a little extra then advertised to actually cover my face and get full use of the product. With the Amie Deep Pore Exfoliating Polish I find that less is generally more. The size of a small-ish grape is all I use, and I am glad as it means that the product lasts longer.
One aspect that I did have a little trouble dealing with was the smell, if smell is important to you, or it affects your skin, sadly you probably should stay away from this product. There is a strong fake smell to the product, not bad, at least to me, but it is something to keep in mind. Over time I have noticed it less, but it is still a strong smell and something to keep in mind.
When I first received this product, it was as a PR sample, but during the most recent Priceline Sale I found myself picking up a backup. I know the one in my shower is finally starting to run low and the idea of being without it shocked me.
Overall I really do enjoy this exfoliator, and I am so glad that I tried this and that it has become a part of my weekly pamper session in the shower.
What exfoliator should I try next?
