Alchimie Forever

Gentle Refining Scrub



The Lowdown

This lightly foaming cleanser is great for oily, breakout-prone skin. While it's first and foremost a cleanser, it has natural exfoliating properties to help clean out pores and calm breakouts. Gel cleansers can be stripping, but we love this one because it's expressly not. Plus, the bergamot and willow bark can help that congestion leave your pores. Deeply cleansed pores mean less visible ones.


This scrub can actually be used as a mask as well! Just apply an even layer and let it set for 10-15 minutes. Then manipulate gently and rinse off with warm water.

How we use it

Once a week, gently massage an almond-sized amount of product over cleansed but damp skin. Rinse thoroughly and follow with moisturizer. Just remember, in spite of the name, don't "scrub" at your skin, tread lightly.

What to expect

A paste-like, finer exfoliant. This great two-for-one chemical and physical exfoliant will leave you very pleased with the texture of your skin.

I love the texture of this one. I love that it's creamy. It has enzymes, so we're getting a bridge between physical and chemical exfoliation. And while the enzymes are starting to work and dissolve the connection between the dead skin cell build up and the rest of your skin, and then the rest goes 'whoosh' right off.
