    Exfolimate Face and Body Exfoliator Review


    dsc_8480

    Today, I’m going to share to you an exfoliation tool that i never thought it existed. It’s called Exfolimate, it’s made from Australia and it is designed to exfoliate your skin with innovative grooves and smooth edge technology to instantly glide along the skin with gentle fingertip control and pressure.

    My first impression was, it was a weird looking tool to exfoliate my skin. I was afraid that I’m going to cut myself while using it but I was wrong. The micro grooves is gentle enough to glide through your face and skin, just make sure your face is wet while using it. I ran it all over my face and  when I ran it through the sides of my nose, I looked at the blade and I saw all the dead skin build up on the tool edge. It’s actually pretty satistfying to see my dead skin being sweeped out by this tool.

    I used it on my upper arms because I have Keratosis Pilaris there. It scraped off some of the dead skin but my little bumps is still there, I think I have to do it more often so that it will  eventually eliminate my bumps out. I also used it on my legs because I have some tiny bumps there too from shaving.

    I just recently received this product, so I couldn’t really exactly tell the results but as far as I have been using it, it scrapes off  dead skin of my face and body. You just have to be careful on those part of your skin that is thin, so you won’t cut yourself. I never had any cut at all but I just stayed away on sensitive areas. You can use it daily to achieve a naturally clearer skin.

    So how do we use Exfolimate? ( There is a manual enclosed for all the details. I just want to through to you a quick instruction.)

    1.While cleansing, showering or bathing, wet the skin with warm water to help open the pore and soften the skin to make it suppler.Use Exfolimate for areas around the face,behind the ears and nose and also for larger areas  of the skin around the arms, legs and body.

    2.Use Fingertip control to press down on your Exfolimate lightly as 90 degree angle to the skin and gently glide in a slow motion in either direction. Maximum 4 to 6 glides, always ensuring the skin is we and supple.

    3.Glide along the neck upwards to the jaw line, along the jaw, across cheeks and forehead.

    4.For in-grown hair, it is recommended to glide with the growth of hair to clear the pores and then back against the growth to lift the hair follicle.Use prior to shaving or waxing.

    Some precautions for using Exfolimate

    1. Avoid excessive pressure.
    2. Not to be used on broken or infected skin.
    3. Do not use for 7-10 days after laser or chemical peel treatments
    4. Don not use if skin is not thoroughly wet.
    5. Do not clean with corrosive kitchen or bathroom cleaning supplies.

    Everyday Make Up Look

    Looks like a lot of make up for an everyday look right? Yes, these are basically my go to make up when I’m on the go and each one of them has a special role to achieve a natural and a no make up kind of look. Most days, I don’t have a lot of time to play around with make up because I’m a mom and I’m always chasing time. So I usually stick to a basic look, just to make myself at least put together and not look like I just got out of bed. Here are my reviews to each one of them. I’ll promise to make it short as possible.

    For the Face :

    Porefessional Benefit Cosmetics – A primer is the very first step and the most important thing before i apply my foundation, it conceals my big pores, takes the shine off my face and evens out uneven skin tone.

    Nars All Day Luminous Weightless Liquid Foundation – Its a full coverage foundation that covers up my  blemishes, acne scars and uneven skin tone. It’s buildable and not cakey. But you don’t really need a lot because it has a good coverage. You only need two pumps and you are good to go.

    Cargo One Base liquid concealer – Ever since I used this concealer under my eyes, I fell in love. It blends and covers up well the creases underneath my eyes and it doesn’t look cakey. I like it that it looks natural and not look like you obviously put too much concealer underneath.

    Laura Mercier translucent loose setting powder – This is the holy grail, it sets your foundation really good to make you look poreless ! A friend recommended me this and gosh, I am thankful. I use it for baking and contouring when I feel like it, but most of the time for everyday look I just use a big powder brush and loosely tap on my liquid foundation to set it.

    Mac Sheertone Shimmer Blush – This powder blush is not just your ordinary matte powder blush, It has some shimmer or shine in it. When light or a flash camera hits on you, the apple of your cheeks will be highlighted. It will make you look like you have high cheekbones and when you do have a high cheekbones or the illusion of having one, it makes you look youthful. I’m on my 30’s , so I’m all about trying to look youngin’ as much as possible.

    For the eyes :

    L’oreal Infallible The Super Slim Liquid eye liner– I have a hooded lid, so I really love this super slim liquid eyeliner to make my eyes look a bit bigger. I apply it really close to my lashes so my eyes will pop up.

    Lancome Color design sensational effects eyeshadow in Mochachino (matte)– I use this to line my under eye, I like to use brown to line my under eye and black to line my upper eye, that way  the contrast will make my eyes a little bigger rather than doing both black. It makes me look more chinky instead. I applied a little bit of eyeshadow at the corner of my eye for a little depth. Nothing so dramatic here, because I’m going for an everyday look.

    Lorac Pro Fiber plus mascara– It’s great for everyday look, it’s tip is easy to apply , it’s not heavy and  it doesn’t clump.

    For the eye brows:

    Anastasia brow pomade– I apply this to fill the inside of my brows. I like the creamy consistency, it makes it easy to apply and it looks very natural.

    Mac eyebrows brow definer in Spike – I used this to shape and line the outside edge of my brows. It looks more defined when its shaped with a liner, then fill it in with brow pomade to have that natural look.

    For the lips:

    I’m showing 5 kinds of lip wear because these are my constant rotation for this season.  On today’s look, I’m using only Colourpop lip liner in BFF 2. It is highly pigmented and for just a lip liner, its  pretty creamy to apply.

    The most time consuming for me  in this make up  routine is my eyebrows because I don’t have a perfectly shaped eyebrows due to over plucking that I did  in my younger years. So I have to take my time shaping it to make it  look natural and thick, since thick eyebrows makes you look younger. You just have to make sure to make it proportionate to your face.

    I’m using Nikon D7000 in 35 mm f 1.8 lens. It is not filtered but taken with flash.

    The picture below is taken with no flash photography and it’s not filtered either. Totally different from the top picture right? So there it is, my everyday make up look.
