As a 62 year old woman who used to worship the sun, I am always on a quest to find a product which minimizes my wrinkles and replenishes my skin's elasticity. My skin is very fair, and has reddened as I age; and the sun's abuse has change the texture from smooth to dull.
PureCeuticals Citrus Mint Refining Polish ($44) excited me. "Refining Polish" sounds like just the ticket to brighten up my skin. I have used polishes and scrubs for years now, and am familiar with the way it sloughs off the dead skin. However, the first time I used the PureCeuticals Citrus Mint Polish, I was very impressed. My skin was smooth, my pores were less noticeable, and my skin tone was much more even. After using it a couple of times, however, my cheeks developed bump-like areas. I discontinued the product. After a week or so, I again used the Refining Polish with the same positive results on my skin. I loved to feel the smoothness and it seems to give my skin an elasticity that had been missing. Unfortunately, the bumps also returned. I realized that I must have an allergy to an ingredient in the product.
However, I would give it two thumbs up for others to try PureCeuticals Citrus Mint Refining Polish. I loved the changes in my skin and the more youthful appearance the polish created.
