Kiehl's Surface Brightening Exfoliator

Kiehl's Surface Brightening Exfoliator

When I won Sophie of Beautynomics Minute Maid Contest way back in summer.. I got a Kiehl's gift cheque worth 5000 pesos. I actually had a hard time choosing the products to get. I am really in love with this exfoliator. If I am not mistaken this costs 1650 pesos at Kiehl's. I have been using it since April and the bottle is still half full. This is way better than St. Ive's Apricot Scrub.

Description:
Our high-performance, foaming exfoliator is formulated with micronized shells to dramatically improve surface texture by removing irregularities from skin and promoting a smoother and brighter skin surface. Combined with potent whitening actives of Plum Fruit and Botanical Extracts, as well as Ascorbyl Glucoside, this effective scrub helps remove dead and damaged surface skin cells and draws away surface melanin, helping to minimize dullness and boost cell turnover to promote and even and bright complexion.
 
As you all know I have super dry skin and I really wanted a product that can exfoliate my skin without causing to dry even more. It effectively smoothens the rough areas of my skin. My cheeks feels like a baby's butt!!hahaha I find this very gentle on skin. The small grains are not harsh at all compared to the St. Ive's Apricot Scrub which is a very abrasive exfoliator. I use it 2x a week. This has a nice citrus scent that does not trigger my allergic rhinitis at all. That is big plus point. 

It comes in pasty and gooey form. Just 2 pea sized amount will do. Add a a bit of water before lathering it on your damp skin.  This made my skin clearer. I have less break outs and my face smoother.
