Pure+Simple: Skin Nourishing Exfoliant + Mask Review

Since I enjoy weekly at home facials, I'm always looking for new masks and exfoliants.  Mask and exfoliant in one? Even better!  I was thrilled to see this in my Pure+Simple box and even more thrilled to have it take over and replace my other products for the last 3 weeks.

Description: Clients love how this simple and inexpensive product can improve their skin's appearance by reducing dryness and blemishes.
  • This exfoliant + mask is ideal for dull or mature skin as the Lemon + Algae Extract promotes circulation in the skin creating a natural glow
  • Brightens dull, congested skin with gentle Jojoba Beads + Lemon
  • Extra hydration from ingredients such as Sea Algae + Vegetable Glycerin + Natural oils + butters
It comes in a heavy porcelain container, which is part of their Bottle Reusing Program, and not travel friendly. But, once your container is empty, you can return it to one of the spa locations for a $1 credit to purchase more products! How awesome is that?  Pure+Simple ensures containers are reused, the environment is happy and you get some money back!  Now, this exfoliant and mask is great.  It smells citrusy, it's not abrasive and doesn't irritate my skin.  I've used this a few different ways and the 3rd is my favourite.
  1. apply to skin, let sit for about 10 minutes,  massage on skin, rinse
  2. massage on skin, let sit for 10 minutes, rinse
  3. massage on skin, let sit for 10 minutes, massage again, rinse
I like the 3rd way best because it just softens up the dead skin cells before the acid in the lemon eats it up.  The last massage is just to ensure all dead cells get lifted and washed away.  It leaves my skin so smooth and glowing.  It's a small jar, but a little goes a long way and for that reason I would purchase this product once it's done.

Retails for $21.95 for 50ml.  Check out www.pureandsimple.ca for more info and to purchase.
