I would be very interested to hear anyone's recommendation for a good exfoliant. I am 40 with slightly dry skin.

My favorite is Primavera Exfoliating Cleanser - it exfoliates better than I thought. Another good one is PSF Peach Scrub. Primavera is available via SaffronRouge and PSF is available here on EDS. Neither of these will dry you out, I find Primavera to be very soothing and hydrating as well - makes my skin VERY soft.

Another popular exfoliant is Dermalogica's Microfoliant but since you have dry skin it might now rok for you as I found it way too drying on my combination skin.

Cellcosmet has a lovely Dual Action Exfoliant which is suited to all skin types. I use it and love it. It works very effectively but is quite gentle.

I second the Cellcosmet exfoliant. I have sensitive skin on the drier side and love this gentle exfoliant. I apply it to slightly damp skin and let it sit for ten minutes before rinsing off.

Carekates's Super Brightening Super-Sonic Facial Mask is awesome! You can make it up yourself--see the link in the DIY thread
http://www.essentialdayspa.com/forum/viewthread.php?tid=5981&start=317

Alternatively, you can PM Carrie and order a batch from her. I received mine on Friday and have used it once and been AMAZED at how smooth it left my skin. Economical AND fabulous!

I use La Prairie Exfoliant & Decleor Peeling Cream. Smile They are both very nice and gentle to your skin. Smile

Hi Mimi!

My favorite is Ice Elements 2 minute miracle exfoliation gel.

You can try it for just the cost of shipping by ordering the sample directly from http://iceelements.com

They also have a great demo video on the 2 minute miracle page that will show you how it works. It really is great stuff! It is very gentle, yet effect and always leaves my skin with a nice immediate glow.

Take care.
Bosoxy.

Maybe take a look at Dermalogica's Gentle Cream Exfoliant. I think it's suitable for all skin types, but you should check it out. I love it.
