The most common cause of flaky foundation? Rough and bumpy skin. Deep exfoliation is needed at least once a week to keep pores unclogged and foundation sitting flawlessly. And some ‘exfoliators’ on the market just don’t leave skin feeling as soft and supple as it should, leaving you wondering if you even exfoliated at all?
Proper exfoliation removes the barrier of dead skin cells clogging the skin and uncovers fresh new cells below. This opens the way for moisturizing products to penetrate more deeply into the skin, which makes them more effective. Basically, a regular exfoliating routine will leave your skin looking fresh and healthy.
Afterglow is a deep blue exfoliating clay that not only buffs dead skin away, but also draws out impurities while fighting aging at the same time. We use a ‘green’ starch-based exfoliating agent called Polylactic Acid, that removes skin impurities for a deep skin cleansing that will give you clear results after the first use. This powerful scrubber is blended with a naturally occurring soft clay, Kaolin, that helps to cleanse and exfoliate dead skin cells and debris from the surface. Together they are a powerhouse. One scrubs the dead skin and the other helps to remove it from your pores.
But what happens to your pores once you clear them out? Well, we thought of that! We added Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, which is a vitamin that works with the natural substances in your skin to help visibly minimize enlarged pores, tighten lax pores, improve uneven skin tone, soften fine lines and wrinkles, diminish dullness, and strengthen a weakened surface. Niacinamide is like you women out there… doing it all!
It is time to stop dealing with rough and bumpy skin and start properly exfoliating with a powerful, natural product. The right exfoliator helps the skin to breathe and encourages the proper renewal of the skin cells. It is time to give your skin that Afterglow you have always dreamed of!

If you truly want an at home spa treatment then I suggest you purchase this product. the fragrance brings me back to having a facial in a spa in Mexico and I can almost imagine that someone else is performing this treatment. and as a fair complexed person this product doesn’t leave my face red but so soft and clear. its going to be hard to not use this product more than recommended!
Wow! A great exfoliator! Another wonderful kismet product to add to my skincare lineup! My skin looks so much clearer and is super soft!
You sent me a little sample of this and I love it. I am a big exfoliator and have been since I started washing my face. I love the smell and feel of this clay and will definitely purchase a full size!
Thanks again for such amazing products. I love that they are free of yucky ingredients and USA made!
I’m enjoying the Blue Exfoliating Clay and I look forward to treating myself each week with this little luxury!
