Best Face Exfoliators

Best Face Exfoliator

Face exfoliators are so important for your skin but the wrong ones can easily irritate and over-stimulate the sensitive skin on your face. These four scrubs are some of my favorites and do a great job of sloughing away the dead skin to leave a bright complexion. They’re all gentle enough to use multiple times a week and some even daily!

[ Favorite Face Exfoliators ]

m-61 face exfoliator

m-61 microdermabrasion scrub: I love this scrub/mask blend by the m-61 brand. The texture is gritty, but soft. Does that make sense or is it a total oxymoron? I use this once a week with my Clarasonic to help cleanse any stubborn pores, smooth skin and get rid of old skin cells.

Beautycounter Face Scrub

Beautycounter Gentle Exfoliator: One of my favorite face exfoliators that I’ve tried to date. It’s insanely gentle and one I’d feel comfortable using daily if I wanted to. The ‘beads’ in this cream are natural jojoba beads instead of the plastic ones that many mainstream brands use.  I’m a big fan of the entire Beautycounter line and it’s adorable packaging, but their products are really amazing

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub

Acure Brightening Facial Scrub: I found out about this Acure scrub while reading an article on Kristin Cavallari’s favorite natural beauty products. This exfoliator stays in my shower and is one I use after workouts or once a week for a good scrub. The color is a little questionable at first (seaweed green), thanks to the sea kelp and chlorella, but it makes your skin so soft!

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant: Another line I love and swear by, Dermalogica. I use their clearing skin wash to help keep breakouts at bay and this exfoliator to help with getting an even and bright skin tone. This product is unique in that it’s a powder you shake onto wet hands and then rub onto your face. It’s another really gentle option that I’d use daily. I keep a travel size of this for any trips!

    I’m in need of a new exfoliator so this is perfect! I think I’m definitely going to check out the Acure one! I’ve been trying to use more natural products lately. <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

    I haven’t used any of these yet!! I like ones that have a little grit to them that are more than just a cleanser, they seem to do more for my face!! xo, Biana –BlovedBoston

    I just tried the BC exfoliator recently. Do you use a lot of their products? I’m trying to decide if I want to start using more!

    I think that one from BeautyCounter is calling my name – it sounds great!

    I knowwww I should adult already and get something “nicer” when it comes to exfoliators. I’m such a creature of habit and have literally used St. Ives apricot scrub for like a decade ha. How are you, friend!? xx

    I am always on the hunt for new exfoliators, so I need to pick all of these up! I use the Amore Pacific powder scrub and really love it! I have a ton of Dermalogica products, so I need to pick this up!

    I’ve used the Dermalogica exfoliator before and really enjoyed it! I considered ordering it again for our trip since it’s a powder and anytime we can avoid flying with liquids is a plus.

    I haven’t tried any of these before but will have to. I have been wanting to try the Beauty Counter products.

    I’d love to try BeautyCounter ! I hear wonderful things about it.
