I’m one of the few beauty bloggers who doesn’t appreciate pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin pies or pumpkin anything for that matter! But pumpkin enzymes in my skincare?! That’s something I don’t think I’ve ever tried. Recently I was sent the ILUMA Intense Brightening Exfoliating Powder by Image Skincare (£40/43g) just in time for Halloween which features pumpkin enzymes as its key ingredient. I love how we skincare addicts can now use Halloween as an excuse to treat ourselves. Here are my first impressions…
This Exfoliating Powder contains a new generation of natural botanicals, enzymes and antioxidants to help skin reach a new level of radiance. I’ve never tried an exfoliating powder before but I love the idea of blending it with your favourite mask to boost its exfoliating and brightening properties.
The powder is activated by water, simply shake a little into wet palms and rub your hand together to create a light foam. It gently buffs away skin cells to brighten and illuminate the skin. It’s gentle for daily use and leaves my skin feeling incredibly soft. The powder also contains liquorice extract, green tea, coconut milk powder and a blend of whey protein and lactic acid to support skin regeneration and correct the appearance of uneven skin tone. If that doesn’t sound impressive enough you may be pleased to read that it actually smells like pumpkin too! With a hint of gingerbread thrown into the mix.
