I’m into this!

An esthetician recently recommended that I find a more gentle exfoliant due to some skin irritation that was observed.

As an Aesop user, I took those concerns to my local store. I was encouraged to exchange the Tea Tree exfoliant I'd been using for the more gentle one reviwed here. I've been testing this over the last weeks--first with samples and, later, I purchased a full tube.

It's a gentle exfoliant that I would highly recommend for those experiencing sensitized skin for whom an exfoliant is ok.
