Jergens Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Mosturizer

I attended a grooming workshop lately and the expert couldn't emphasize enough on the use of exfoliator for a healthy skin. I did a bit of homework on the use of exfoliation and since then was on the look out for a good one. A month ago I got hold of Jergens Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Mosturizer and I am very-very-very happy with the effects.

For beginners I will exprlain the difference between a Scrub and an Exfoliator. Exfoliator removes the dead skin to srevel the young, youthful skin. while a scrub can also remove the dead skin but its main purpose is to soften the skin and open the pores so that active ingredients can go inside the skin. Thus it is more advisable to exfoliate the skin rather than rubbing and scrubbing it.

 Here goes my indepth review of the product.. 

Jergens say: 

Exfoliates and moisturizes for smoother, silkier-looking skin

A mild exfoliator and nourishing hydrator, Jergens® Skin Smoothing Cellular Renewal Moisturizer delivers 24-hour moisturization for smoother, silkier skin.

Micro-beaded, fruit acid formula boosts cellular renewal
Removes dry, flaky cells to reveal lustrous skin

I say: 
After a month of regular use I am very happy with the smoothing effects of this mosturizer. My skin is softer, brighter and healthier. The problem with my combination skin is that exfoliation left the dry parts of my skin drier while the oily parts had a healthy effect but this product hydrated my over all skin and my friends noticed the glow in my skin. It has a mild, nice smell which is perfect for a product you plan to wear for long hours. The fruity beads work to exfoliate and then renew the skin.. Have a close look.

I also tried this product as a face/ arms/ hands and also as a body lotion, after all my body skin needs exfoliation too. It has worked wonders on the rough skin of my elbows and knees. It is lighter and smoother now. I am very pleased with this multi purpose Hydrating, smoothing, softening and exfoliating product and I see myself buying it over and over.

There is a caution on the bottle which says: 
SUNBURN ALERT: This product contains an alpha hydroxyl acid (AHA) that may increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun and particularly the possibility of sunburn. Use a sunscreen and limit sun exposure while using this product and for a week afterward.
Therefore, as a precaution I use this product in the afternoon after cleansing my face when I get back from work and sometimes as a night lotion after cleansing and wash normally with my face wash in the morning. Even then I would suggest that if you are a working lady and have long exposures to sunlight during day, just use this in the evenings or at night.

Product website:
Pocket Matters: 
I bought it from a local mall for PKR 650 which is good for such a multi purpose product.. but I saw the same on another store for PKR 700 and another for PKR 580. So the rice may range from store to store-city to city.
