Fashionista turned beauty mogul Trinny Woodall has been providing all the fabulous lockdown content we could possibly need via her Instagram channel lately.
Alongside her regular series, like her ‘Friday Twinning’ and ‘Closet Confessions’ videos, Trinny has been churning out a new stream of short clips under the title ‘Skincare Fabulous Four’. With her signature exuberant presenting style, Trinny’s Instagram videos are as hypnotic as they are informative, and her new skincare series is no different.
Having already sung her praises of her four favourite cleansing balms and exfoliating acids, in her latest instalment of the series Trinny turned her attention to granular exfoliators.
And while she recommended a total of four great products in the video, one recommendation in particular caught our eye – the £9.99 Gentle Daily Micro Polish Wash from Super Facialist.

Today ladies and boys, we are talking granular cleansers. The regularity of how much one should use them is reliant on skin type. For dry, crepey skin, once a week is ideal, and for oily, acne-prone skin, you can use them more often. Perfect for giving the skin and hands a new lease of life, my advice is to concentrate on scarred areas to polish and soften your complexion. -PS. INDEED LABS FOUNDER DEMITRA DAVIDSON – think I said something very random like Dee!!!! Cleansing Cream by @drhauschka. £16. – Low: Gentle Daily Micro Polish Wash by @super.facialist. £9.99. Created by Úna Brennan and sold at Boots, this scrub contains eco-friendly bio-degradable beads and contains a small dosage of Vitamin C. – Mid: Exfoliator II by @indeedlabs. £24. Founded by Dia Foley, this brand focuses on prepping the skin to look great under even the harshest of lights. This one is enzymatic and in powder form, and as a rice bran exfoliator, is great for more sensitive skin. Expect a little tingle, and for a more intense treatment, leave on as a mask. – High: Triple Microdermabrasion Face Polish by @exuviance. £51. By the company that championed research into glycolic acids, this scrub does physical, chemical and granular polishing. Loaded with papaya and regular AHAs, I love to use this one in the crease of my nose and on my lips. – High: Essence Noir™ Polish by @nannettedegaspe. $90. A combination of volcanic sand extract, pineapple, papaya, 7.5% AHA, 0.05% BHA and PHAs, applying this product feels like a professional microdermabrasion experience.
Designed to gently cleanse, resurface and polish skin, this light gel face wash works to reveal a smooth and glowing complexion. Gentle enough to use on even sensitive skin, it’s infused with eco-friendly biodegradable micro-beads and enriched with antioxidant ferulic acid and vitamins C and E, softly sloughing away dead skin cells and impurities and promoting brighter looking skin.
Trinny offers the following advice for how often to use granular exfoliators: ‘The regularity of how much one should use them is reliant on skin type. For dry, crepey skin, once a week is ideal, and for oily, acne-prone skin, you can use them more often. Perfect for giving the skin and hands a new lease of life, my advice is to concentrate on scarred areas to polish and soften your complexion.’
If the reviews are anything to go by, it appears there are many happy customers of the Super Facialist Vitamin C exfoliating face wash, with one reading: ‘I love Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Gentle Daily Micro Polish Wash & use it every day. In the past iv used expensive products on my face and it hasn’t been great compared to Superfacialist Vitamin C+ Gentle Daily Micro Polish Wash which actually gives you great results.
‘My skin has never looked so bright and healthy, it really helps reduce blackheads and if you continue to use become blackhead free… The citrus scent of the product is also amazing.’
While another says: ‘This vitamin C is far the best one I’ve used really gentle but cleans deep. My face is so soft and alot brighter since using this. I would recommend this to anyone with pigmentation on the face. I’m 41 and I’m so glad I found this. 5*’.
