My Experience:
Packaging: The exfoliant comes in the standard Dermalogica packaging. It’s a white colored tube with a grey colored flip cap & looks very nice to carry around.
Texture: The exfoliant looks like a thick white colored mask & after application it does look like a white thick cream smeared over the skin. To put it in a precise way, I would say it looks the same way how a crème bleach when applied on the skin looks.

Fragrance: The fragrance is not so pleasant! It isn’t bad but it difficult to describe how it smells.
Exfoliation: This exfoliant is not like the regular exfoliants with granules to scrub away dirt but this is a gentle mask without any granules. Once applied it form a thick layer over the skin & within few seconds one starts to feel a mild stinging sensation & since we keep this for 10-15 minutes the thick masque gradually gets absorbed & leaves behind a thin layer which can be easily washed away. After washing away the masque, I found the skin little brighter as if it has removed some amount of tan from the skin, but since I have dry skin, I left me little dry & I had to use a moisturiser after using the exfoliant. I’m sure regular usage would make the skin brighter.
