The first time I purchased Kiehl’s Ultimate White Surface Brightening Exfoliator was way back in December 2009. Some products, I can remember very clearly when I bought them for the first time. Maybe it’s because at the end of every year, I usually make some significant purchases. I’d tried the product on the back of my hand before purchasing and immediately liked the scent, texture and overall feel of the scrub.
I haven’t repurchased but it isn’t because I don’t like the product. In fact, it is probably one of Kiehl’s better products. I still have some samples sachets which I use from time to time. The Surface Brightening Exfoliator is like a thick paste and I just add a few drops of water once I have applied it to my damp skin.
The Surface Brightening Exfoliator promises to:-
- Dramatically improve surface texture irregularities
- Boost cell turnover
- Provide a brighter skin appearance
The product was specially developed to meet the needs of Asian skin and promotes a smoother, brighter skin surface. It’s formulated with micronized polyethylene beads to improve surface texture by removing irregularities to skin, promoting a smoother, brighter skin surface.
The granules are tiny and once a little water has been added to it, it doesn’t feel harsh on my skin. It just feels really smooth and pampering. Afterwards, my skin feels so soft as if I’ve just had a facial. I love this product but unfortunately, this isn’t one of the brands I want to pay retail for (any more). Product retails at RM110 for a 150ml tube.
