With as skin-altering as it can be, exfoliation has become so popular in the industry that even makeup minimalists can break down the names of go-to acids. The skin-sloughing, glow-revealing move has been in high demand for years — from French-girl gommage to pre-event celebrity peels. But if your makeup regimen is anything like that of Naomi Watts, you’ll definitely keep the strong treatment in rotation without overdoing it. In a recent interview with Who What Wear, the star shared that she just exfoliates, at most, once a week. “I don’t want to do it more than that really because of my sensitive skin,” she explained.
However, as Watts exfoliated, she pointed to one particular treatment: “I love Goop’s GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator,” she said to Who What Wear. The $125 Clean Makeup Favorite comes from Goop ‘s Beauty Line, and although it’s obviously not inexpensive, it’s actually included in Sephora ‘s Holiday Savings Event — for another day. Depending on the Beauty Insider stage, you can either save 20 percent, 15 percent, or 10 percent on the HOLIDAYFUN promo code mask through Nov. 9. That means you can only pay $112.50 on the Watts-approved commodity if you have a simple (and free) Beauty Insider membership.
You’ll soon understand why the mask has become a popular fan if you pick it up during the deal. Many solutions rely on physical exfoliation, some kind of acid, or vitamin-rich fruit to energize the skin. The GOOPGLOW Microderm Instant Glow Exfoliator does all three things: it provides glycolic acid for chemical exfoliation, physical buffing with the courtesy of quartz, garnet, alumina and silica minerals, and Kakadu plum extract, a blooming star on the vitamin C scene. Use once a week if appropriate, such as Watts, or more regularly if the skin is used for daily exfoliation; Sephora’s website states that it can be used up to three days a week.
