Laura Mercier Face Polish review

I also got this as a sample from Sephora and I'd have to say that I really, really like it! It's probably the best exfoliating cleanser I've ever used.

Pros: super gentle exfoliating beads, creamy texture, not too harsh but effective, smells good, leaves skin feeling exquisitely soft, smooth, and polished for a radiant finish.

Cons: expensive! $30 a pop.

What I thought about it: This is possibly the best exfoliant I have ever used. I really liked the exfoliating beads in it... they were super tiny and made up the majority of the cleanser. They weren't harsh at all and really did seem to "polish" my skin, which was instantly smoother, softer, and glowing after using it. It doesn't smell bad and is an interesting orange color as well :P The only downside is that it is pretty up-there in price... $30 is kind of out of my price range for cleansers. So this isn't something I would be buying anytime soon; probably in the future though, since it worked very well for my skin.
