No matter how many luminous foundations and highlighters you use, your face is never going to have that glowing look without a good diet and lifestyle, and a good exfoliator! Your skin is constantly shedding, and you need to get rid of all of those dead skin cells. Yes, it is gross, but true!
This brings me to a Proudly South African product that landed on my beauty desk a while ago. There is nothing better than a local product, except a local product that is outstanding!
Dr Gobac Exfoliating Masque is a creamy masque that dissolves dead skin cells leaving you with fresh and renewed skin. It is very gentle yet effective, and my skin looks and feels healthier, plumper and more hydrated after use.
What I love about enzyme exfoliators as opposed to granular ones is that they are less harsh, and they know when to stop. Enzyme exfoliators cannot over exfoliate, unlike our hands and a granular scrub, which could keep going until our skin is left torn, red and raw!
What I love about this particular product is that it is an enzyme exfoliating luxurious masque! Just smooth a thin layer on the face, close your eyes for 15-20 minutes, rinse off and voila! There is no need to massage or scrub or any sort of hard labour. This gentle, silky masque is formulated to exfoliate effectively, while nurturing and protecting the skin, leaving the skin feeling silky soft and smooth.
If you are still not convinced, keep reading for the science behind it!
It contains papain enzyme to effectively dissolve the dead keratinised layers of the epidermis.
It also contains Vitamin E acetate which feeds the skin, improves elasticity and is a protective antioxidant
Retinyl Palmitate (a form of Vitamin A) and Palmitic Acid (a component of palm oil) are easily absorbed into the deeper layers of the skin, where they are converted to retinol to help control and stimulate the growth of epidermal cells, improve stability among the cells, and restore the epidermal architecture, while protecting the skin against infections.
The results of this product speak for themselves!
The Masque is R399.00 for a 50ml tube, and is worth every cent. Because it has such a creamy texture it is so easy to spread, so you hardly need to use much, so it will last you a long time!
