This Is the Only Physical Exfoliant That Doesn't Dry My Skin Out To Hell
Chemical exfoliants are definitely my jam, but sometimes you need a good physical scrub to get rid of visibly dry, flaky skin. Nine out of 10 times, they work great. But the one caveat is that the formulas aren't known to be the most, uh, moisturizing.
That's why I swear by Isla Beauty's Snow Scrub Exfoliator.
This magical formula is able to remove dead skin all while keeping your skin supple. So yes, you can have it all — at least when it comes to face scrubs.
Using natural silica particles as the exfoliator, the Snow Scrub Exfoliator is able to get the job done by blending glycerin and Swiss glacial water to ensure the skin's moisture barrier doesn't get a beating in the process.
The formula also boasts a ginseng, apple, peach, wheat, and barley complex to create a shield against pollutants as well as menthyl lactate to give skin a cooling feeling after use.

To use, I simply wet the area of my skin where I'm noticing dryness and flaking, scoop up a little bit of the scrub, and work it around in circular motions for about 30 seconds to one minute. Once I'm done, I rinse my skin off, pat it dry, and it's soft as a baby's behind.

If you, like me, have ever suffered from the same dryness you were trying to avoid with a physical scrub, you may not be entitled to compensation, but you'll definitely want to give this Isla joint a try. It's truly the best of the best and totally worth the splurge.
