Biotherm Rides Repair Instant Polish

The Good:
As long as you make sure to use your richest moisturizer generously after exfoliating with Biotherm Rides Repair Instant Polish, this sandy paste will leave your face as smooth and soft as it can be. It's very efficient and rinses off easily.

The Bad:
The "wrinkle repair" label. This is an exfoliator, it doesn't repair or fix anything, just sloughs off flakes, dirt and debris. Yes, a clean skin absorbs creams and serums better, but since this this Instant Polish is somewhat abrasive (it feels almost like a sand paper) and can be harsh on thin and sensitive skin, maybe it shouldn't be labeled as part of the Rides Repair line. Also, the recommendation to use it 2-3 times a week? Way too much.

The Ugly:
A typo (or misspelling) on the box and on the website: "Apply 2 to 3 times a week on wet skin. Avoid eye contours. Massage and rince. Then apply your daily Rides Repair skincare products. "

Biotherm Rides Repair Instant Polish ($29, 2.5oz) is available from I received it as a PR freebie.
