Default Exfoliating

Hey I'm looking for a good exfoliating product for my skin. I have sensitive skin and I don't want to spin a lot of money. Any one know of any

I use Philosophy's Micro Delivery Wash. It's a very gentle exfoliating wash that can be used daily. It doens't have those big harsh grains like some scurbs do but it exfolites well and is good for sensitive or acne prone skin. I buy it in the 1L size and that lasts me for a good 6-8 months with daily use.

Coffee grounds (NOT decaf) in your usual face wash, or mixed in with slightly whipped egg whites.

I use baking soda mixed with water. Cheap, simple, good for sensitive skin.

I bought some exfoliating pads from Wal Mart. I add a drop of my face cleanser to the pad and wash my face with it. I only use it once every other week.

I also use St. Ive's Olive Face Scrub. It's a really gentle face scrub.

I tried exfoliating my skin but I got reactions from every exfoliator. I tried home recipes including the ones mention earlier. I tried mixxing sugar in my cleanser but I still got reactions. Also, exfoliating makes my face break out. Which I do have acne-prone skin and obviously do not want to cause it. I get irritations from basically everything on the market today. I would suggest doing a patch test. It is really simple and ends up saving money on products that irritate you. All you do is put a little bit of the product on your wrist or basically anywhere you can see. If the product irritates your skin within a 24-48 hour period then you are allergic to the product. This test I know was used by doctors at one point. I do not know if they still do the test or not. There are so many products on the market they might stopped it.

Dr. Hauschka Cleansing Cream - deep cleansing, gentle exfoliant.

I buy it at Whole Foods. You can go there and request a sample to try before you buy.

I like Dr. H's cleansing cream too. I just find I lack the patience to use it as recommended. Dr.Hauschka Bedtime Cleansing Routine - YouTube

I love PSF 2% BHA. I also use their Pumpkin Enzyme Mask from time to time to amp things up a bit. I know a lot of people live Dermalogica's Daily Microfoliant but my results with it have been less than stellar.

Also, I assumed you meant you want to exfoliate your face. If you're talking about your body, instead of your face, the Dermalogica Body Buffing Cloth is amazing. For the first time in my life I have smooth, soft elbows and no alligator skin on my shins. You use it with your own cleanser. Rinse it after your shower, hang it to dry. I had a few bumps on my thighs and upper arms, like maybe mild KP and those are gone. I'm smooth as a baby's butt. It's pretty hardcore and you have to use it somewhat gingerly until you get used to it, but I'm loving this thing.

I read the insert.....actually I'm not even sure I finished reading it before I knew I wasn't going to use it that way. I use it just like any other scrub; I use very little of this and gently rub with my fingertips in a circular motion on my damp face. My face feels uber smooth immediately upon rinsing. This is the only scrub that I've used consistently a few times a week for the past 3 years or so.

I prefer a chemical exfoliation after I cleanse using a washcloth or the clarisonic. Too vigorous physical exfoliation can cause micro tears in the skin, cause broken capillaries, etc. Not good.
I use 2% BHA lotion by Paula's Choice.
