Get Rid of Dead Skin Cells with Enavose 1st Line Probiotics Exfoliance Gommage


My recent Sephora haul came with a sample of this product. I have never heard of it. I researched about it and found out that it’s pretty amazing.

So what exactly is Enavose 1st Line Probiotics Exfoliance Gommage? That’s a mouthful!

Gommage by definition is a type of exfoliator, a cream or gel, massaged onto face or body, which turns into specks and crumbs of product plus your dead skin cells, sloughing them off of your skin right before your eyes.

This product an exfoliator gel from the Swiss brand Enavose with gentle resurfacing action to diminish dead skin cells and promote cell renewal. The ‘Probiotic’ stands for the Bacillus Ferment probiotic, the good bacteria effective for skin renewal. It helps build the defense of skin against bacteria accumulation. Another active ingredient is the Bitter Almond Extract Acid, an AHA which is slower in penetration, thus reduces skin irritation making it perfect even for sensitive skin. The combination of ingredients and flora blend aims to provide radiance and glow to the skin.

Sorry I know this is gross but for you to have an idea how it works :)
My Thoughts
As directed, I applied it on dry face. I dotted a sufficient amount of my forehead, cheeks, chin, nose, and neck. I massaged for a minute or two before rinsing. When I massaged it, specks and strands of dead skin started to appear. I massaged it for around two minutes until the product is gone and what’s left are several crumbs of dead skin. It was so gentle and it did not sting at all. My face felt smooth and soft after. I am not sure if it’s placebo but my face looked radiant after using it. My boyfriend also noticed a little glow on my face. That was only the initial use. The product can be used as much as twice weekly, no more than that. I am excited to try it again. I will use it once a week and will decide on purchasing the full size after finishing the sample.

Where to get it?
I got this sample from Sephora but upon checking, they currently don’t carry a full size just yet. I am pretty sure they will carry more Enavose products soon as they already have it on their site.

Do you like exfoliating? What exfoliators have you tried and did it work for you?
