A week or so ago I was contacted by Oqibo to see if I would like to review a product of theirs. As soon as I read their message I knew I was in good hands. Beth from Oqibo asked me all about my skin type and recommended that I try out their Skin Refining Exfoliator*. I wouldn't say my skin is in a terrible state but I do suffer from bumpy skin on my forehead and the odd breakout on my t-zone.
When my little care package arrived, it came with such a lovely personal letter and some other samples for me to try out. The Skin Refining Exfoliator comes in a 50ml squeezable tube. The packaging is a very elegant and simple white with black lettering. Oqibo claim that the exfoliator will remineralise, hydrate and remove any dull and drab surface skin cells. The directions say to apply 2 times a week to exfoliate or once a week as an intensive treatment mask. Something I found particularly interesting was the instruction to massage into the skin for 1-2 minutes. I usually exfoliate for 30 seconds max : / That's probably why my skin has been feeling so drab.
The product has a light floral fragrance. I tend to dislike anything that is overpoweringly floral but Oqibo have found a happy medium. I love a really 'grainy' textured face scrub as it makes me feel that it is actually loosening dead skin instead of just smoothing it. Although the Skin Refining Exfoliator isn't as textured as I had hoped, it is definitely better than others I have tried.
All in all the results were good. My skin has felt a lot cleaner and smoother than normal and the imperfections on my t-zone don't seem as obvious. I still have that bumpy feeling on my forehead but I think after using the product for a few more weeks it will feel a lot better. The Skin Refining Exfoliator is on the pricey side retailing at £23.95 for 50ml, however it has had a lot of glowing reviews so many feel it is worth it!
Thank you Oqibo!
