One of the things I loved about my old job as Group Sales Exec. in a travel company years ago was being able to visit many places and stay in luxurious hotels (part of the job, of course 😉 ). It’s the relaxation, food, comfort and most of all, being able to pamper myself with the finest skincare products in their spa. And boy, don’t they just smell incredible? Exsicata’s Facial Mask & Exfoliating Body Cream reminds me so much of this spa experience. But this time, it’s pampering at the comfort of my own home, where I can be myself and do it whenever I want!
Made in Brazil, award winning brand Exsicata brings the Brazilian Heritage in botanical skincare to the rest of us. And we have Adriane Semmer, the founder of this brand, to thank for that. It’s been a great privilege to sample the whole range and I had quite a difficult task of choosing which one to try first! ha ha
In the end, I went to indulge myself for another facial mask session accompanied by their body exfoliating cream.
Both creams have one mission: to leave your skin bright, refine, and supple to touch. You just know when a brand has outdone themselves when you look forward to using their products every time with excitement and smile. I use the facial mask maybe once or twice a week since too much exfoliation can have an adverse effect on your skin.
You can also get Exsicata’s products via their Hong Kong distributor Vero Amore here.

The granules used in this facial mask are made of coconut shell powder, which is round and smooth in shape allowing for a gentle and smooth exfoliation with no harm on the skin. For some reason, this facial mask reminds me so much of Hershey’s Cookies n Cream, or is it just me in my food craving mode? LOL
My skin overall has really taken a dive this winter. Dry, flaky, itchy and unfortunately, my eczema is also back in action! The exfoliating body cream helps rub away the flakiness, revealing a brighter and softer skin without being too harsh.
The exfoliating particles of Exsicata’s Exfoliating Body Cream are from natural sources, being made out of apricot seeds and from fossilized amber resin found in pinus succinifera woods of Europe. Not only that, this cream offers antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection and skin repair, which makes this product more of a body treatment mask than just an exfoliating cream. Feel free to leave this on for 5-10 mins for better absorption.
Main ingredients: acai berry extract, croton lechleri resin, buriti fruit oil, rice bran, jojoba & cadelilla waxes. All Exsicata’s products are free from harsh chemicals such as parabens, sulfates, synthetic ingredients & phthalates.
As for the scent, it’s actually very hard to describe apart from the fact that it smells ‘high end’ and reassured, not the off-putting type. It’s very cooling on the skin and both creams absorbs easily without being heavy, so thank goodness, no breaking out!
These products are definitely my skin rescue this winter and I couldn’t wait to share this with you.
And of course, the only way for you to really know more about Exsicata is to try them for yourself, right?
