With Winter in the midst, that also means dry skin is inevitable and we all need to find a way to keep our skin exfoliated and moisturized.  Recently I had the opportunity to try the ViaBuff – which is a poof to help buff your way to healthy, smooth, softer and brighter looking skin.  I am going to share this product with you today.

Cleanse, Exfoliate and Renew With ViaBuff

What is ViaBuff?  ViaBuff is a Dermatologist Tested, skin cleansing pillow-soft body sponge.  It delivers deep cleansing and exfoliation to remove dead skin cells and boosts the skin’s natural renewal cycle – helping to retexture the skin’s surface and promoting improved clarity, even tone and smoothness.  This cushion soft ViaBuff Advanced Superior Foaming technology and unique Patented design provides 1200 sq/i. of useable surface area for a more efficient exfoliation experience.  Available with one or two strengths of exfoliation, you can choose your preferred level from extra gentle to clinical and get that clean and exfoliated skin you are looking for.

The ViaBuff comes in both a facial and body version.  The ViaBuff Facial Mini Buffs are so cute!  They retail for $4.00 each or $11 for 3.  The Viabuff Mini Buff Exfoliator is 3″ and comes in 4 different levels:

  • Level 1: Extra Gentle
    Ideal for Oily Skin, Acne, Psoriasis
  • Level 2: Mild
    Ideal for Normal Skin, Eczema
  • Level 3: Moderate
    Ideal for Dry Skin, Ingrown Hairs, Keratosis Pilaris, Waxing
  • Level 4: Clinical
    Ideal for Very Dry Skin

The Viabuff Mini Buff Exfoliator is non-sensitizing, non-irritating, cruelty-free, and dermatologist-tested.  This product does not contain harsh abrasives.  I love to use them on my face while in the shower to help give my face a light exfoliation without being too harsh on my sensitive skin.  It’s soft and feels nice against my face.  My face feels smooth and soft after use and is mild enough for every day use.

The ViaBuff Body Duo Exfoliator retails for $11.00 or you can choose to get the handle $3.00 to make it easy to scrub a dub your body.  Like the face ViaBuff, you also have 4 different levels to choose from:

  • Level 1: Extra Gentle
    Ideal for Oily Skin, Acne, Psoriasis
  • Level 2: Mild
    Ideal for Normal Skin, Eczema
  • Level 3: Moderate
    Ideal for Dry Skin, Ingrown Hairs, Keratosis Pilaris, Waxing
  • Level 4: Clinical
    Ideal for Very Dry Skin

The ViaBuff Body Exfoliator is non-sensitizing, non-irritating, cruelty-free and dermatologist tested.  This product does not contain harsh abrasives and is 5″ big making it the perfect size for cleansing your body.  You can select to purchase a set that comes with the body handle or sets that include more than one and these make really nice gifts.

Cleanse, Exfoliate and Renew With ViaBuff

ViaBuff helps to cleanse and exfoliate skin simultaneously, improving your skin’s texture.  This product helps to promote new skin cell growth and helps to reduce the appearance of large pores.  With consistent use of the ViaBuff, you can improve acne and even facial skin tone as well as reducing fine lines and wrinkles and smoothing the roughest of dry skin on the legs, feet and elbows.  The ViaBuff stimulates collagen production while protecting against further damage and the built in silicone strap makes it easy to hang in the shower.

I have been enjoying using the various ViaBuffs to smooth my body and face and love that it works so well and is gentle on my sensitive skin.  I tend to get pretty dry on my elbows and knees and I noticed that those parts of my body (and everywhere) are exfoliated easily without being abrasive like other products can be. My children also use the extra gentle body ViaBuffs to clean and smooth their boy and they love it as does my husband for his needs.  I definitely suggest these and would recommend them to anyone.  These pillow-soft sponges are American made and professionally recommended and after using it for about a month, even on my sensitive skin, I have found these to be beneficial.  Purchase yours or learn more about it at: https://www.viabuff.com/shop/

Every time a new product comes out that claims to offer awesome results, I swear I think I have seen it all… but I was once again amused and interested in a new product that I have never seen before in the U.S. Market.  Exfolimate Face and Body Exfoliation Tool Set is a gentle exfoliation tool with micro-groove technology and is Australian designed.  At first glance, it looks like a tool I would use to clean my glass stove top, so I’ll honestly say that I shook my head at the thought that this product would even work.  Come on now, it looks like something a painter would use to scrape paint… there is no way this thing could possible exfoliate my skin and body.

Exfolimate

 

Retailing for about $38 dollars US ($39.99 AU), this product claims that it is

your own personal exfoliating mate, designed with innovative micro grooves and smooth edge technology to instantly glide along the skin with gentle fingertip control and pressure.  Use Exfolimate for perfect precision exfoliation and noticeable results.  By using your Exfolimate daily, you will naturally cleanse your pores and remove dulling surface debris to achieve naturally clearer skin that is smooth to the touch with a radiant glow.  Just add water.”

The Exfolimate comes in two sizes – one for your Face and one for your body.  It’s simple to use but at first glance, I’m not gonna lie… it looks a bit scary.  Using the products are easy… while showering or in a bath (your skin must be wet and supple), gently glide the Exfolimate with slight pressure at a 90-degree angle along the contours of your skin.  Cleaning is also simple in that you only need to run the stainless steel edge under warm running water to remove any remaining debris from under the skin smoothing edge and hang to dry using the chords that are included.

Exfolimate Body

I have been using the Body Exfolimate on areas that tend to get dry and have the most dead skin, like my knees, ankles and heels of my feet.  I also love to use this particular one on my elbows.  I use it all over my body and it’s easy to maneuver and use.  I’ve been using the Exfolimate Face for my entire face but especially places I know gets the driest skin like my nose.  It’s easy to use and definitely a great tool to have.

Exfolimate Face

When using this product, avoid excessive pressure and do not use on broken or infected skin.  Do not use for 7 to 10 days after laser or chemical peel treatments and do not use if your skin is not thoroughly wet.  I usually will wash my hair first before I use these tools to ensure that my skin is soft and supple before using.  Of course, you want to make sure to avoid the eye area at all times.  If irritation occurs, discontinue use of the product immediate and apply a suitable moisturizer or sunscreen if you’re going outside.  Do not clean with corrosive kitchen or bathroom cleaning products and do not boil or wash in dishwasher.  Simply rinse with warm water and hang up to dry.  Since the blade is made of stainless steel, it stored away nicely in my shower without rusting or any damage.  Use your finger tip control to press down on your Exfolimate lightly at 90 degrees to the skin and gently glide in a slow smooth motion in either direction.  Maximum of 4 to 6 glides, always ensuring the skin is wet and supple.  Towel dry the skin when done.  I have used this product before my shaving and it has made a huge difference in the closeness of my shave.  I have pretty much used this on all parts of my body and it has definitely made a difference in how my skin feels.

Exfolimate

So – what are my final thoughts on this product… Honestly, it is a little costly in my opinion, or it was before I first tried it.  While I’m still not sure I would pay the cost of it without knowing how it would work, I do think that this product is quite genius and has worked fairly well with my very sensitive skin.  After using the Exfolimate the first time, my skin was very dry after toweling off… and so I moisturized using my heavy body butter and moisturizer for my face.  I didn’t have any reactions to the products, no eczema flare ups and over all I do enjoy the experience.  I use this product each time I shower and have been doing so the last month.  It’s easier to clean than an exfoliating sponge or loofah and very easy to use.  I do however suggest, if you have sensitive or dry skin, test the product first on an area that is not as sensitive to see how your skin reacts.  My skin gets very dry after using the product, so I normally will do so only when I’m showering at night so I can use a heavy duty moisturizer to keep from my eczema flaring up.  If you have severely dry skin – I definitely suggest talking to your doctor prior to use.  I love that this product removes the dead skin on my body and face and leaves my skin soft (after moisturized of course).  It’s easy to use, easy to clean and easy to store.  Overall – I think the product itself is pretty cool and it doesn’t cause me any pain, which is definitely a plus considering how it looks. lol

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

About a month ago I received the Perlier Volcanic Thermal Spa ($25.00, 6.7 fl oz) by cashing in my ifabbo coins.  When it comes to skin care products or scrubs, I tend to be a little hesitant to try the products because of my very sensitive eczema skin, but I was still a bit excited to test out the product since Volcanic type products are popular here in Hawaii.

This product is said to be a true beauty treatment for the skin having extracted micronutrients from volcanic rocks that are essential and vital to the cells in the skin.  I was excited but still a little worried at how my skin would react.  Even more so, I was worried that a friend of mine who had tried the same product did not like the results she received after using it on her face… it was just too much for her skin to handle.  After finding this out – I decided that I would test it out on a small area on my jar line.  My face did not like the product at all and in fact, it was just to abrasive for my skin on my face.  I decided that I would try to test out on areas on my body that I knew were a little drier and not as sensitive as my face was.

I tested the product on my elbows and on my heels of my feet.  It worked well… exfoliating those parts of my body without out being too abrasive for them.  It left those areas fairly moisturized and removed dead skin which worked perfectly.  I will not use this on my face, but it still has a use for me.  Being from Hawaii, I expected something with “Volcanic Rocks” to have a more natural scent to it – but it actually smells like a strong lotion.  It’s not completely off putting, but it is stronger than what I had thought I would be smelling.  My formal opinion would be that you test this product somewhere on your body that is a little tougher than your facial area especially if you have sensitive skin as I do.  But, all in all – it exfoliates well, especially for my feet.
