Janssen Brightening Exfoliator

A few weeks ago the lovely Olga at Radanta sent me a lovely package to review some products from Janssen. In my package i received a brightening exfoliator, a  cleansing powder and some night restore cream. The powder and cream were just one sachet sample so I wasn't able to analyze fully but I did a full review on the Brightening Exfoliator as it was a full size product. I have previously used the Neostrata Illuminating Range and I love love love it. So to try another brightening product was great. I am going to tell you a small bit about Janssen as I didn't know much about them. 

Since 1990, Walther Janssen, together with his wife Elka, has consistently worked towards developing a skin care system which is based on multiple, highly-effective and efficient active substances. The challenge was to achieve verifiable results and therefore contribute towards improving the skin profile. With his first care product range, WHITE SECRETS, he traveled to Asia and presented the first cosmeceutical series on a small folding table. The product series for light skin quickly took off, causing Janssen Cosmeceutical‘s reputation to spread quickly.

Since 1995, the care product range has accordingly been named JANSSEN COSMECEUTICAL . Demand for further care product series for specific skin types was not long in emerging. Over the years, care product series with special active substances for the various skin types were developed to enable beauticians to provide their customers with individual treatment and therefore help them to achieve particularly successful effects.

So I received the Brightening Exfoliator which is basically a peeling cream to make skin more even tone freeing from all dead cells. You squeeze a small amount of Brightening Exfoliator on palm of your hand and massage in gently over your face, neck and neckline after cleansing and toning. Rinse off with plenty of water. Tip: Treatment with Brightening Exfoliator is most effective in the evening skin care regime. After exfoliation apply Brightening Night Restore cream for maximum effect.

 The active ingredients are Polyethylene, Citric Acid, and Glycolic Acid. I have explained what these ingredients do below.

• Polyethylene spheres: peeling granules for mechanic removal of dead layers of skin
• Citric acid: derived from citrus fruit, is an active rejuvenation ingredient, has antioxidant and healing effects. It improves the skin's surface structure in the same manner as a chemical peel
• Glycolic acid: belongs to a group of Alpha Hydroxyl Acids (AHA), it is found naturally in sugar cane and grapes. It works by breaking down substances that bond dead skin cells beneath the top layer of skin. Dead skin cells, which contribute to clogged pores and uneven skin tone are successfully removed. Long term use of Glycolic acid has been shown to help to diminish fine lines, wrinkles and age spots

 Janssen claim the product:

  • Removes dark-pigmented dead layers of skin
  • Stimulates the formation of new skin cells
  • Promotes a fine-pored, clear skin profile
  • Specially formulated for radiantly bright and more even skin tone
  • Perfect preparation for all intensive skin-brightening treatments

So how did i get on with it, well i was super excited to try it. I cleansing using the cleansing powder provided. Then I applied a small amount on my palms and massaged into my face starting at my chin and working my way up to my forehead. I then rinsed off using my cellulose sponges and lots of water. My skin looked instantly brighter and my skin tone looked nice and even compared to before I used it. I use this brightener once to twice a week maximum as it was a little drying on my skin. Most exfoliators are drying so I wouldn't hold it against it. I can say this product does what it claims. This is retailing at €29.50 which is reasonable for what you get. It can be purchased online at Janssen

Has anyone else used Janssen before?
