If you have arrived late to the Elemis party, as did I, then I implore you to begin investigating this marvelous line of products. There are so many treasures to report, that I can hardly believe that it has taken a skincare product enthusiast, such as myself, so long to become acquainted with their products. Better late than never!
I have long held that exfoliators are an essential part of a skincare routine, and I have used far more than I could ever possibly recount over the years, but the list of attributes that I require is quite simple: the scrubbing particles must not have sharp jagged edges that damage the skin, and the scrub must not overwork and strip the skin. My skin can be a bit finicky, and at times it can be sensitive, but on the whole it behaves normally for combination skin.
When I first heard about the Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator, I didn't give it a lot of thought. I suppose that I just assumed that it was a nice exfoliator, but not necessarily anything out of this world. When I used it for the first time I also had some misgivings when I squeezed it out of the tube and saw that it appeared to have a small ratio of micro-spherical beads to the cleanser gel-- I feared that it might be too gentle, and not exfoliating enough. BOY. WAS. I. WRONG! In fact, this may just be the most brilliant exfoliator that I have used to date-- no exaggeration. Not only does Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator do an exemplary job of removing all traces of dead skin, but it truly does it so gently that it is truly unlike anything that I have experienced. The exfoliating particles are smooth, and sharp edge free, micro-spherical Jojoba beads that are as gentle as it gets. However, gentle does not mean ineffective-- these understated little particle remove every bit of dead skin! It also leaves skin silky smooth and scrumptiously hydrated. It really is remarkable, and I am completely sold! Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator also has the gorgeous scent of roses that frankly takes the experience of exfoliating the skin from the ordinary to the extraordinary. Thankfully this exfoliator is gentle enough to use daily-- because I really love the experience and the results, and plan to use it often.
According to Elemis,
Directions: Use after cleansing skin. Dampen the face with warm water and apply the Elemis Gentle Rose Exfoliator in circular motions all around the face and neck. Rinse with warm water. Use every day if you wish, the emollient gel is very gentle.

Overall assessment: I didn't know what I was missing until I tried this effective, yet unbelievably gentle, exfoliator. It leaves my skin velvety soft and silky smooth! It's true love for me.
