The different-sized microbeads in this ultra-fresh gel exert a triple mechanical exfoliating action. Almond shell particles ranging from 200 to 500 microns in diameter slough away impurities and superficial dead cells. The medium-sized exfoliating grains of Silica Powder polish thicker areas of skin and those clogged with oil or clusters of corneocytes. Enriched with SEVE BLEUE DES OCÉANS, REFRESHING EXFOLIATOR reveals the radiance and softness of normal to combination skin.Diatomite, essentially fossilised micro-algae collected from the ocean floor, comprises ultra-fine particles about 30 microns in size which smooth and refine the skin texture. The Thalgo Refreshing Exfoliator now replaces the Thalgo Freshness Exfoliator.
