As a dry-skin sufferer, exfoliating has always been an integral part of my beauty routine. However, the benefits of exfoliating the skin goes beyond simply removing dead skin cells to reveal a smoother complexion as it also improves circulation, skincare performance and even combats signs of aging.

Unfortunately, there are a lot of facial exfoliators on the market that are quite abrasive and a little too rough in texture – especially on sensitive skin. Thankfully, i’ve found the perfect solution in a brand new product by Alexa Sky Botanicals.


Alexa Sky Botanicals recent product launch saw a brand new facial exfoliator containing the innovative Reishi Mushroom, an ingredient which brings a multitude of benefits to the skin. Reishi Mushroom contains high levels of polysaccharides, which is responsible for the skin’s natural ability to retain water and hydrate itself. Polysaccharides also helps to repair free-radical damage and reduce puffiness and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. These properties are what gives Alexa Sky Botanicals’ Reishi Pore Refiner Face Exfoliator it’s unique and powerful skincare benefits, and thanks to the other skin loving ingredients of Rhassoul Clay, Dead Seas Salt, Marshmallow Extract, Vitamin C and Turmeric Extract, it also cleanses, unclogs pores, exfoliates and brightens the skin too.


Alexa Sky Botanicals vegan-friendly pore refiner is fragrance free, with only the subtle earthiness of the natural ingredients coming through. The pore refiner defies typical exfoliator qualities, as the exfoliating powder is so finely milled, yet actually out-performs its gritty counterparts.


The powder mixes well with a little water and spreads across the skin with ease, applying like a face mask and rinsing like a cleanser. My skin was left feeling incredibly soft and smooth without any irritation, redness or tightening. My face felt amazing, and my complexion was certainly brighter and healthier in it’s appearance. I have to say that I can’t wait to utilise the Reishi Pore Refiner Face Exfoliator into my routine on a regular basis, and experiment with other ways to incorporate it within my other skincare products. They’ll be a full review coming soon, but to find out more about how this could benefit your facial skincare regime, check out the link below.
