Daily exfoliation made gentle with Kosmea, Estée Lauder, Aveeno and Olay!

So you know how you aren't supposed to exfoliate more then 2 or 3 times a week? Some weeks that just doesn't work for me - especially when the cold weather comes along making my skin look flaky and dull! This is the time of year I switch over to an exfoliating cleanser - which offer light exfoliating action that isn't too harsh to use everyday when I need to. Here are a few I like:

Kosmea Daily Facial Exfoliant - 125g - $36.99 - lifts off dirt, make-up and dead skin cells to reveal a radiant complexion. Contains crushed chamomile flowers to soothe and calm the skin as well as ground rose hips to gently exfoliate, leaving the skin deeply cleansed and radiant; and kaolin clay and rice flour to draw out skin impurities to improve skin clarity.

New to Canada, this line is a best-seller in its native Australia and features a signature infusion of organic, ethically sourced rose hip oil and the finest herbal plant and flower extracts - I like natural products but I sometimes find the scent a bit too "earthy" for my taste, this line smells like an expensive spa which is exactly the kind of scent I prefer!

If you want to give the line a try before committing to a full-sized product then check out the Discover Kosmea Kit - $34.99 which includes trial sizes perfect for travel of the Purifying Cream Cleanser, Clarifying Facial Wash, Daily Facial Wash, Daily Facial Exfoliant, Hydrating Rosewater Mist, Rose Hip Oil and Replenishing Moisture Cream.

You'll be happy to know that the whole line is free of mineral oils, artificial colours and fragrances, parabens, petrochemicals, sodium lauryl sulphate and animal ingredients.

Available at Whole Foods in Ontario, The Big Carrot, Nature's Source as well as select Natural Health Food locations and online at
Estée Lauder Perfectly Clean Multi-Action Cleansing Gelée/Refiner - 150ml - $28 - a lightly foaming gel with gentle exfoliating beads offers a burst of refreshment for your skin that gently cleanses and exfoliates at the same time - that helps control excess oil and effectively removing impurities and flakiness as well as unclogging pores, leaving skin smooth, refined and looking healthy, fresh and luminous.  Good for all skintypes and is ideal for oily skin.

Aveeno Clear Complexion Cream Cleanser - 141g - $10.99 - a creamy cleanser perfect for acne-prone skin with salicylic acid, moisture-rich soy extracts and gentle microbeads that gently exfoliate for clearer, even looking skin.
