Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant

Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant

There's a lot of talk about liquid acids and exfoliating toners, and for good reason.  Getting the right one can really make or break your skin care routine.

Now, I've tried a few,  some feel very harsh, others let a few bumps slip by, but there are a few that are pure magic.

I got lucky.  When I started on the journey to find the best liquid exfoliant, my first stop was to Aveda.  I'm a sucker for their products, they all smell amazing, and their sales associates are usually very helpful.

Knowing what I was looking for, I went straight in and picked up their Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant as an intro into the world of liquid acid. 

It has Salicylic acid, which makes it a Beta Hydroxy Acid, it never irritated my skin, and all products after seemed to glide right on. I used it night and day for a week, and felt like I finally understood what all the hype was about.  This was the product that allowed me to use heavier anti-aging products without pesky bumps popping up. 

After this I started experimenting with other serums, oils, cleansers, and eventually I tried an Alpha Hydroxy Acid and other BHA products, for testings sake, but I always returned to the Botanical Kinetics to reset my skin if I didn't like the results of a test product.

This isn't the strongest product, so I don't think I'd recommend this if you're looking for extreme exfoliating power, or if wrinkle reduction is your main concern.  But if you're in your mid-twenties, and looking to battle adult acne, this may be a winner.

For me, this is the most consistent, and if you're in the market to experiment with acid toners, this a great first step.  I always make sure to have a bottle handy in case!
