I'm one of those people who cares equally for the feel and smell of my cosmetic products as much as for their efficacy. So when I opened the tube of Exuviance, I was delighted by the silky feel of the gel (though it was a bit hard to squeeze out of the very small opening). I also immediately loved its very fresh fragrance, which I can't quite identify, though it reminds me of the sea without being exactly marine-like.

Upon applying it to my face and neck however, the fragrance began to be a bit much. Normally, I prefer a fragrance that begs for just a little more, that is, it lingers but doesn't hover. This one hovers. I left it on for the requisite 20 minutes and prepared to peel it off as directed. I was not able to peel it off - perhaps I didn't apply a thick enough layer. So I washed it off with warm water, which was also directed as an alternative to peeling. I didn't love that, especially since it's a clear gel and you can't quite tell if it's off or not.

My skin certainly felt smoother and cleaner but also ever so slightly left with a residue I couldn't quite detect. I can't say this product does not do what it says it will do, and I would have to use it again over a longer period of time to do it justice. But from this one usage, I wouldn't go out of my way to purchase it myself, especially if it's expensive. (NB: it costs $26).
