Vasanti Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator

By Wednesday, February 23, 2022 , , ,

Vasanti is a brand I have loved and adored for years. For some reason they fell off my radar in the last few years, so when I was asked if I wanted to try out their Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator I jumped at the chance.

Brighten Up! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator
A micro-dermabrasion in a bottle! Our hero product with over 250,000 positive reviews with a 4.5 star rating. Brighten Up! Exfoliator is a physical exfoliator that works like a microdermabrasion treatment and fruit enzymatic exfoliator in one. Formulated with aloe to ensure gentle exfoliation so everyone can use it without irritation. For all skin types.

This version of Brighten Up! (there are a few items in the lineup) happens to be an exfoliator.
Using both enzymes for a chemical exfoliation and micro fine crystals for a physical exfoliation, it helps scuff off dead skin cells and reveal smoother softer skin. Using aloe it helps reduce irritation from the process and helps hydrate the skin.

Ingredients Listing:
Aqua (Water), Aluminum Oxide, Cetyl Alcohol, Decyl Glucoside, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycerin, Propanediol, Panthenol, Emulsifying Wax NF, Glyceryl Stearate, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl Acetate, Papain, Parfum, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol.

When I use the mask, I usually wash my face first before massaging it onto my skin for a about a minute. 

The instructions on the website also say it can also be used as a face mask. I layered it on thick and sat with it on my face for about ten minutes before scrubbing my face with it and washing it off. It felt a little odd leaving it on, I could definitely feel the acids gently doing their work. I honestly didn't mind it, but prefer using it as just a scrub.

The microdermabrasion is supervised and do a great job at making my skin feel incredibly soft and smooth. I love to use it on my problem areas, which are between my brows, my nose and my forehead. I find it is really effective at getting those flakey areas smooth even in this dry weather. 
I don't think the fruit acids do a whole lot if you're not going to leave it on your skin for a while,  but you can easily do that. The microdermabrasion is honestly enough for me to get the results I like from it without the extra time. 

Overall, I like this scrub.  I love that it is from a trusted Canadian brand I already know and love. I love that it is super smooth and fine and leaves my skin feeling great without drying it out. Also I love that it also a double duty product, a mask and a scrub even if I don't use it as a mask often.
