This stuff rocks my socks ( and rough patches ) off!
I got to try a sample of this in one of my first birchboxes, but was too chicken to use it until Thanksgiving ( gotta look good for the family photo 😉 ) After using it once I regret not using it sooner – could have had great skin walking into the Catching Fire Premier 😦
On first use, the product is very light with a nice citrus scent. I used a standard face-wash amount and worked it onto my face in a circular motion. It’s a gentle a ‘scrub’ So basically I thought nothing was happening but once I was out of the shower….man, skin was baby soft! Extra Plus is the great ambiguous citrus scent. For me, the scent kind of lingers on the skin for a while and I like it enough that it doesn’t bother me. However, for people who aren’t too keen on the citrus smell, I have found that the scent fades rather quickly if I wash my face with a mild cleanser ( baking soda by Etude House) after exfoliating or if I apply a gentle/ moisture rich toner (omija whitening by skin foods).
The pic is for the small full size product ( coming in at $80 for 2 oz, YIKES!) but it might be worth it in the long run…I haven’t decided yet, so much mulah (T . T)!
Dr.Brandt is an established and reputable Korean brand, I believe ( always was geared towards the ahjuma instead of youths ), and they’ve successfully penetrated the US market and major retailers so, this can be found pretty much anywhere (if you’re a birchboxer , sephorian or get it straight from Dr.Brandt.)
