Appreciating Skincare That's Smarter Than You Are! Pro+Therapy Gentle Skin Polisher

This exclusive formula is engineered with Propol® the "smart" exfoliator that prevents over-exfoliation... the kind that can lead to over-drying and skin damage.
It's good to know people have my back when it comes to skincare, as I can be a bit of a moron - especially when selecting things like facial scrub.
For years I mistakenly believed that the more abrasive the scrub, the better. After all, it's eliminating all of those dead skin cells, right? The more I slough off, the more radiant my skin should look, ostensibly.
Evidently, an exfoliant should be pretty gentle, which is why I was very happy to discover Pro+Therapy's Gentle Skin Polishing Exfoliator. This exclusive formula is engineered with Propol® the "smart" exfoliator that prevents over-exfoliation... the kind that can lead to over-drying and skin damage.
Precisely what we want to avoid.
This scrub hardly feels like a scrub at all. It's remarkably gentle, featuring soft, natural “beads” derived from a unique, Japanese vegetable that gently removes dead skin cells while absorbing excess oils and impurities.
And here's the fun part - after approximately 2 minutes in the presence of water, the beads turn themselves off by rapidly dissolving, preventing over-exfoliation of your skin. Yes, this scrub is smarter than you are, and it has your back.
Ever since I started using it, I've noticed that my skin is softer and more luminous. I've been using it every-other-day, but evidently, it's so gentle that you can get away with using it daily if you want to.
Here's the skinny on the scrub's smart ingredients:
Exfolactive® - Supports the skin’s ability to shed old and dead skin cells naturally, promoting skin luminosity and skin renewal with healthy young skin cells.
Kinetin - A natural DNA-derived growth factor that helps to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and increases the skin’s ability to maintain moisture.
Zeatin - An exclusive RNA-derived, second generation growth factor that helps to slow the external, visible signs of the natural aging process and improves the appearance of the more severe signs of sun damage and aging.
Now repeat after me: I will never be an over-zealous skin scrubber again.
