Revive Exfoliating Face Wash
Using the REVIVE Exfoliating Face Wash regularly will help you achieve healthy, glowing skin. Formulated with all natural/organic ingredients, it uses finely ground organic cane sugar as an exfoliator, helping you get rid of dead skin cells, while healing organic oils and organic Shea Butter provide healing moisture to your skin. A very gentle, coconut derived soap adds a foaming action to wash away make-up and the pollution that accumulates on your face while you go about your day.
The REVIVE Exfoliating Face Wash comes in a resealable pouch made for you to be able to sprinkle the contents into the palm of your hand without getting the contents wet. It is available as a small (6.2 oz/175 gr) or large (12.3 oz/350 gr) size.
The Revive exfoliating face was is suitable for all skin types, as long as you gently massage it into your face (no vigorous scrubbing here please!)
Gently wet your face with water, then sprinkle some of the exfoliating face was in your hand and massage gently all over the face avoiding the eye area. Add a little water to activate a foaming action. Gently massage face until the sugar has fully dissolved. Wash off with water and pat dry. Follow with the Refresh Toner and a moisturizing serum or face cream.
