I used to love exfoliating. It was my favourite skincare step. I don’t seem to do it very often anymore, but I still love trying new products. When I was given the opportunity to try a product from a local skincare company, I was excited to open my package to find an exfoliator.
Seaflora Skincare is a Canadian company based on Vancouver Island, B.C. (like me!), which uses wild seaweed, ocean mud, and marine minerals to make healthy and natural skincare products.
The Iridaea Exfoliator uses Rhodophyta, ocean mud, Kaolin Clay, and Chamomile to make a gentle scrub aimed at dry and damaged skin.
This scrub is a lot runny and more liquidy that I was expecting. It’s pretty messy to use, but is quite gentle. The grit feels mostly like sand and is exfoliating, but not harsh. The smell is slightly plant-y, but not very strong at all.
The product dries as you apply and rub, which felt a bit like it was drying my skin, but since you don’t leave it on for any length of time, it didn’t have a negative effect. This left my skin feeling polished and smooth.
This is an expensive scrub at $50 for a full sized tub, but the company does have several gift and introduction sets that would be a great way to sample their various products. With it’s all natural, mostly certified organic products, and a very Earth-friendly company policy, Seaflora Skincare is a great addition to the skincare world, and one I’d encourage you to check out.
