MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator

ma5l01 261 thumb MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator MAC Cosmetics has come out with one heck of a good exfoliator. MAC Volcanic Ash Exfoliator is truly wonderful stuff, and I predict that it will make my best of 2008 list at the end of the year. I find the MAC product description to be quite accurate, so here it is:

A highly effective, dual-purpose, foaming and exfoliating scrub blending natural Volcanic Ash with fine sugar crystals from the islands of Vanuatu. Adds moisture: leaves skin feeling soft and comfortably clean. Mineral-rich. Good for absorbing skin’s natural oils. May be used on any part of face or body. Rinses off with warm water.

The scrub is pretty coarse, which I like, but the foaming action tones it down a bit, It also leaves the skin feeling moisturized–something I find pretty impressive for a scrub. The one odd point though is that it is black in color. So it seems a bit weird scrubbing this jet black goo all over your face. I suggest avoiding use of it while wearing white or with white washcloths. I don’t know if it would stain and I wasn’t keen to test that! Personally, I use it in the shower.

  1. Wow–and exfoliator that leaves your skin moisturized? That’s impressive. Most of the ones I’ve used leave my skin feeling smooth but somewhat tight afterwards. This is one I’m going to have to try. But black?

  2. I love this stuff and am so irked that it’s limited edition! It’s sold out everywhere! Here’s hoping that they make it part of the permanent collection.

    Cindy: The moisture factor is what is so incredibly great about it. But yeah, the jet black part takes a bit of getting used to!

    Toya: I didn’t realize it was limited edition. It really deserves to be a regular item!

  4. Well said, finally a good report on this stuff

  5. I can’t find it anywhere you guys. I really really want to buy one of those.
