Ceramide Plump Perfect Gentle Line Smoothing Exfoliator
Enriched with CPT technology, vitamins and botanicals, this product claimed to provide a gentle deep cleansing and to leave the skin smoother and revitalized. It is the blend of Snap-8(a new peptide) and a collagen-supporting naturally-derived that creates a double dimension plumping effect on skin's appearance.
This weekly treatment uses polyethylene as its main exfoliating agent. Often found in facial and body scrubs, some might find the finely-ground granules to be harsh and tears up the skin. What I often do, especially when skin is irritated, is to blend in cleansing milk to make it less gritty and doesn't overly-exfoliate your face.
I love the smell of the rich and creamy consistency and distributes on the face very smoothly, thanks to the coconut oil and shea butter listed as the top ingredients. Fortunately, both occlusive emollients worked well for my oily skin, without any breakouts and I don't have difficulty rinsing nor have that dreaded, filmsy feel on my face.
The exfoliator comes in a tube that allows for steady control, dispensing as much or as little product as I want. The creamy texture compliments the scrub beads without overwhelming the latter. Without stripping off the natural moisture, this scrub does leave my skin polished and conditioned, but I don't feel that plumping effect nor do I see the surface lines reduced. Adding to the cons list, my blackheads were left untouched.
Overall, this weekly deep-cleansing treatment reads scrumptious and gentle, and promises a soft, smooth and radiant glow. However, don't expect Botox-resembling results. For best results, follow up with the CPP Ultra Lift And Firm Moisture Lotion SPF 30, one of my favorite moisturizers that works really well for my skin.
