To begin with, Crunchi I AM Polished™ Facial Exfoliator differs from the conventional apricot pit or sugar scrubs.

Specifically, it contains glycolic, lactic, and fruit acids that dissolve the bonds holding dead skin cells together.  If used as directed, the exfoliator gently removes the dead skin without scratching the skin.  When the dead skin is gone, the facial complexion gets a radiant glow.  And then, your toner and moisturizer work more efficiently.

Another exfoliating ingredient is pumice (volcanic ash).  It is naturally white in color and does not go through any chemical or bleaching processes.  The product has been third-party laboratory tested for heavy metals (lead, arsenic, mercury, and cadmium), and their levels are well below the US, Canada, and European Union cosmetic limits.

In addition, the exfoliator contains organic spearmint leaf oil that creates a refreshing tingling sensation to help energize the skin; butterfly pea flower extract, a natural antioxidant that adds a purple color to the product; and green tea leaf extract is also a potent antioxidant and skin soother.

Crunchi facial exfoliator is fragrance-free, cruelty-free, gluten-free, vegan, and packaged in a recyclable glass container.  It has a 100% BPA-free/phthalate-free and recyclable lid and is placed in a recyclable paper carton.

How to use

You can use it every other day or as tolerated, as a quick exfoliating scrub or a gentle 5-minute skin refining treatment mask.  First, stir the contents of the jar and then gently massage a small amount of product into your clean, dry skin avoiding your eye zone.  Rinse thoroughly and follow your normal Crunchi skin care regimen.  As I mentioned, you can leave it on your skin for up to 5 minutes before rinsing for more intense treatment.

What if you have dry, sensitive, or acne-prone skin?  Well, this exfoliator is gentle enough for dry, sensitive, and acne-prone skin.  However, as with every skincare product, it is a good idea to do a patch test first to ensure your skin reacts well.  Of course, discontinue using it if irritation occurs.

Note that Crunchi facial exfoliator changes viscosity with heat, and it gets thin or runny when it is warm.  As it cools down, it returns to a thicker consistency.  Also, depending on the temperature, the pumice can start settling toward the bottom of the glass.  Don’t worry – it does not affect the performance of the product!  Just mix the contents with a clean, dry spoon.

I have been using this Crunchi facial exfoliator and loved it – my skin felt refreshed, rejuvenated, and relaxed like after a spa! The pores on my nose almost disappeared.
