Today, I’ve got two unique exfoliating products to tell you about. I haven’t seen anything like either one of them.
PUR Cosmetics Joystick Exfoliating Deep Pore Cleanser
My pores aren’t usually that big or noticeable thank goodness. But recently I was surprised to see that when I applied too much foundation, it settled into my pores, and I had never had that happen before. It bugged me.
Just around that time, I received a cool new product from PUR Cosmetics: Joystick Exfoliating Deep Pore Cleanser.
I’ve never seen anything like this stick. The stick is a solid cream with exfoliating bits. I apply it to my nose and the pores on either side of my nose, add a little water and rub it and rinse. Sometimes instead of using an exfoliating mask, I’ll apply it all over my face avoiding my eyes, and again add water and lather it up. It leaves my skin feeling soft and I mean truly baby skin soft as well as ultra clean with almost invisible pores.
Because my skin is very dry and somewhat sensitive, I use it only a couple of times a week: once on just my T-zone as recommended and usually once on my entire face for a deep cleansing. The exfoliating bits do their thing to clean my pores, while the cream that forms the stick is both cleansing and hydrating. It even has a built-in toner. Such a nifty and handy multi-tasking skincare product! I probably would never have bought this on my own because of my dry skin, but I’m so happy I have it! I’d say PUR Joystick would be especially perfect for combination or oily skin.
If you’re interested, check out the Joystick Exfoliating Deep Pore Cleanser on the PUR website. Price $26. 0.1 oz./2.8g. Cruelty-free. BTW, when I went to the website just now, it offered me a free mini-mascara and free shipping. Nice.

Beauty Junkees Lip Pumice
Beauty Junkees never ceases to amaze me. They keep coming out with wonderful beauty products at absolutely incredible prices. Although I have several other BJ products to tell you about shortly, I had to let you know about their unique Lip Pumice, just in time for helping winter dry lips or lips dried out from using liquid matte lipsticks or for whatever reason you may have dry lips.
Lip Pumice is similar to the Joystick. It is a hydrating lipstick-like bullet with exfoliating bits. I doubt that the exfoliating bits are made from actual pumice (a type of volcanic rock, right?) since it’s used on the lips, but it acts like a pumice stone.
I reach for my Beauty Junkees Lip Pumice often. I’ve just gotten over a very bad virus, and the fever and illness dried out my already dry lips even more. So I use Lip Pumice sometimes a few times a day. It removes the dry flakey skin and leaves my lips feeling softer and more hydrated. It’s also perfect to use right before applying a matte lipstick. What a useful tube!
