Sephora Metamorphosis Exfoliating Powder is a very fine milled scrub that you can use alone when mixed with water, or mixed with cleanser.
This powder scrub provides double-action exfoliation—through a gentle chemical peel and micro cellulose powder—to smooth and soften skin texture instantly and make the complexion radiant. It may be used once a week alone or mixed with a daily cleanser, and is gentle enough for all skin types, even sensitive skin.
I am a huge fan of the Philosophy Microdelivery scrub, which you can use daily, and the Dr. Brandt Microdermabrasion scrub. Both products are very pricy, and the Sephora scrub is only $20 for 1.41 ounces. That may not seem like a lot, but you need so little powder to exfoliate, that this will last for a long time, especially when used a couple times per week.
I’ve used this with water and with cleanser. One tip is to make sure that your cleanser isn’t too thick. For example, I’ve been using the First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Red Clay cleanser, and it’s just a little too thick to use with the exfoliating powder. My other cleanser (and my favorite), Desert Essence Tea Tree Face Wash, is much thinner, so it’s a better option to mix with the scrub. I do like it mixed with plain water as well, which is something I usually do at night after I’ve removed my makeup. It doesn’t have any smell or taste.
In my book, this scrub is a winner! I love how small the grains are, and it’s easy to remove. Plus, my skin feels really refreshed after using it. I use this about twice per week. I don’t find it harsh, but my skin isn’t super sensitive. I recommend asking Sephora for a sample of it before buying if you have sensitive skin.
