vbeauté Rub Off Gentle Facial Exfoliator is an extraordinarily effective, gentle, and refined exfoliator that really gets the job done. As I have mentioned numerous times, my combination skin is both finicky, and at times quite sensitive. Physical exfoliators can cause by skin to crack and peel if they aren't as gentle as they are effective. Large jagged pieces of exfoliating granules easily lacerate the skin leaving it vulnerable to infection and/or general over-processing (either way, it will do your skin no favors). I won't even test these types of exfoliators on my face for the aforementioned reasons. Rub Off, on the other hand, is precisely what a physical exfoliant should be: gentle and effective. After use my skin is clean, fresh and positively glowing. It whisks away dead skin, excessive sebum, as well as blackheads and whiteheads (pesky ones are easily extracted afterward, I have found). My skin never looks or feels over-worked, and it is shockingly radiant after use. As is expected with a good exfoliator, it enables all of my serums and creams to absorb more readily, and allows me to use far less because it increases the efficacy of those products by allowing then to penetrate the skin with considerable ease.
