The Lavo face exfoliator feels like an ultra light cream mixed with super soft beach sand and it is a 2 in 1 face scrub, both mechanical and chemical. The mechanical exfoliation comes from the tiny, aluminum oxide crystals crystals and the chemical exfoliation from the fruit enzymes.

How do you use the Lavo exfoliating cream?
First of all you need to cleanse your face and then pat it dry, leaving your skin a little damp. Then using small circular movements of your fingertips, massage a small dab of the cream into your skin, avoiding the sensitive eye area.
Do this for 1 to 2 minutes and then rinse away all of your dead skin cells with warm water. Follow up with your favorite serums and moisturizer.
You can use this facial exfoliator once or twice a week, but it is best to avoid this particular exfoliating cream if you have sensitive skin, open pimples, Rosacea or other skin conditions and don’t use it immediately following a chemical peel. If in doubt, always talk to your health practitioner about whether this cream is suitable for your skin.
More than 90% of all customer reviews love this face exfoliating cream by Lavo. Customers talk about how they like the fine sand-like texture of the cream, as it is not to rough on their face, and that their skin feels soft and smooth after using this cream.
My final thoughts on the Lavo Face Exfoliator
Customers really like this creamy face exfoliator because it is packed with lots of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
When you use this face scrub once or twice a week all the dead cells are removed from the surface of your skin, letting your other beauty products penetrate your skin, instead of simply sitting on top of the dead cells and doing nothing.
Your skin is left feeling soft and supple and your complexion looks cleaner, healthier and fresher. The Lavo exfoliating face scrub is ideal for all skin types, except sensitive skins or those with active open pimples or Rosacea.
