There’s a new kid on the block and it’s definitely making waves. “Bacteria for beauty” is a buzz word and I’m officially on the hype train. Since incorporating the Exuviance Probiotic Lysate Anti-Pollution Essence into my skincare routine, my skin is looking really great. It’s glowy and looks healthy! What exactly is the Exuviance Anti-Pollution Essence, you ask? It’s a concentrated daily essence that targets the skin microbiome to help re-balance, moisturise and strengthen the skin.
Introducing the Exuviance Anti-Pollution Essence- Bacteria for your skin! (it’s good, I promise!)
There has been a lot of talk lately on the harmful effects pollution and oxidative stress has on our skin. We’re living in a super busy age where work and stress is constant! So, there is a move towards trying to improve overall skin health by alleviating oxidative stress and improving the barrier function.
An essence isn’t actually a new concept. In fact, they are very popular in the far east and are slowly making their way into our local beauty routines! An essence is a mix between a toner and serum. It’s actually a hybrid of the two that provides an extra layer of defence against the daily onslaught of environmental aggressors.
So the Anti-Pollution Essence from Exuviance is here to help target the skins microbiome, as well as strength the skins moisture barrier. Additionally, it contains a high-performing 8% level of Polyhydroxy Acid which is known to deliver antioxidant benefits without irritation. This all helps to neutralize the visible ageing effects of environmental stressors including pollution and harmful metals in air and water
What are the key ingredients in the Exuviance Anti-Pollution Essence?
Probiotic of Lysate. Found naturally in yoghurt, it targets the skin’s microbiome to help re-balance and optimise a healthy skin appearance.
Gluconolactone, a Poly Hydroxy Acid (PHA). It is an antioxidant that enhances skin health and resiliency. It diminishes the look of environmental ageing and restores radiance. Chelates oxidation promoting metals; strengthens the barrier, hydrates/moisturises and has skin conditioning benefits.
Hyaluronic Acid. A hydrating glycosaminoglycan attracts water to the surface of the skin, quenching dryness.
Biosaccharide Gum-1. A polysaccharide derived from plants. It provides hydration due to its humectant and film forming effects (similar to hyaluronic acid).
Where do you use this in your skincare regime?
Essences are used at the beginning of a skin regimen, between a toner (if used) and a serum.
My experience with the Exuviance Essence
Man, I’ve loved it! It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of pretty much everything Exuviance puts out there. Their quality is seriously amazing, their products are targeted and you will honestly see a huge difference in your skin texture and tone. This is a brand I seriously trust. So when I received the Exuviance Anti-Pollution Essence, I was super excited. Tori from Kiss, Blush and Tell raves about the product -and if it gets her stamp of approval – you know it’s good!

So yes, my expectations were met and exceeded. Because it’s an essence, it’s light and hydrating on the skin. Your skin soaks it up and looks and feels instantly glowy. When you wake up in the morning, your skin will feel very hydrated and supple to the touch! I’ve been using this for a month now and the bottle still looks incredibly full (you don’t use a lot of product each time) so I can foresee the bottle lasting ages. I’ll definitely be using this moving forward, and can highly recommend!
