Review of Lancome’s Exfoliance Clarté

Posted on | September 27, 2007 | No Comments

Lancome’s Exfoliance Clarté

A facial gel that is very very mild so just my skin feeling tight rather than exfoliating.

This is another casualty in my quest to find the perfect facial scrub/exfoliator.

The Lancome blurb made it sound fabulous: “Formulated with white wax micro-beads, ultra-fine exfoliating grains and a cocktail of Pineapple and Papaya extracts to gently slough off dull skin layers and remove impurities”. Who could resist?

In reality, I do like it’s smell, it’s lovely and fresh. It consists of a rather watery texture gel which contains small white beads that resemble broken up polystyrene, but which disappear when the gel is applied and rubbed on one’s face. It also contains tiny bluish sand-like grains which remain and whose purpose, I would think are to perform the exfoliation.

Unfortunately it didn’t live up to expectations. I found it to be too mild. The grains too small, my skin just felt tight after its use, rather more like the effect of a facial mask rather than a scrub.

My complexion didn’t particularly look any more radiant after its use and I didn’t feel it did a particularly efficient job of removing any dry/dead skin cells. Retailing at approximately €27 for a 100ml tube, this is too expensive a product for a very mediocre result. I won’t be purchasing it again.
