The Iluma Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder | Does it Work?

During this pregnancy my skin has hit a new low thanks thanks to the extra hormones, so I've been into my skincare more than ever, hoping to get it back to it's pre pregnancy state. It's said that during pregnancy you'll get that pregnancy glow, and I can honestly say, there's no such thing. Surely it's just a myth? This so called 'pregnancy glow' was nowhere to be seen with my previous pregnancies, nor this one. My skin seems to look dull, tired, run down and I have had multiple breakouts(though some have thankfully cleared up now).

I've been trying various different products over the last couple of months in order to get my skin looking its very best again, and one of those products is the Iluma Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder by Image Skincare(£40).

As the name of the product suggests, it is in fact an exfoliating powder, which isn't something I have ever tried before. I usually stick to what my skin knows and loves in terms of exfoliators as some can be a little too harsh and irritating on my skin. 

The Exfoliating Powder contains a blend of natural botanicals, enzymes and antioxidants to help the skin reach a new level of radiance. The key ingredients are Coconut Milk Powder(to aid in skin regeneration), Protein Peptide Complex(a combination of whey protein and lactic acid to support skin cell regeneration and correct uneven skin tone), Licorice Extract(as a natural brightening agent) and Green Tea(to protect the skin from free radical damage). Pumpkin Enzymes play the biggest part in terms of exfoliating the skin though. 

Now, naturally when I hear about pumpkin in Skincare, well, it throws me off a little. I am not a fan of the scent, nor the taste. Just, erm no. In fact when I first smelt the exfoliating powder, I was a bit put off, but as time went on, I got used to it the more I used it.

It is so simple to use. All you need to do is shake a small amount of the powder into damp hands and lather it up to make a light foam, then massage straight onto the face. It works at polishing off all of the dead skin cells in order to illuminate the skin, whilst also cleansing the skin of any impurities.

It is ever so gentle on the skin as it doesn't have a gritty texture to it, so I imagine this would work for all or most skin types. I was cautious to try this at first as my skin can be temperamental when it comes to exfoliators, but I'm so glad it didn't result in a bad reaction. In fact, I was rather pleased with the end results. My skin was left looking and feeling soft and smooth with a wonderful healthy glow to it.
