Yves SaintLaurent Instant Pur – Product Description
The active ingredients in Yves Saint Laurent Instant Pur Gommage Natural Action Exfoliator is the granule free sugar base. Sugar is a alpha hydroxy. Many manufactureres use alpha hydroxies as a base because of their low molecular weight. The molecular weight is important because the molecules can actually penetrate the skin, and push forward the faces excess debris. The results of the product are almost instant. However they do not last long because the body constantly replenishes its self. Thus the manufacturer created the product to be used daily. In addition it is designed to be used by all skin types; oily, dry, normal, and combination.
When using an daily exfoliate it should be noted that the skin does become more vulnerable to the suns damaging UV rays. As a precaution the product should be used with sun block to protect skin.
The product is expensive when compared to other exfoliates that do the same thing. If purchased directly from the website the product runs forty four dollars.

Yves SaintLaurent Instant Pur – The Bottomline
To summarize, Instant Pur Gommage Natural Action Exfoliator does exfoliate skin, using a natural sugar base. Unfortunately the product is over priced. In addition the products performance does not justify the products cost. Consumers who have used the product state that the degree of exfoliation achieved by the product is less than satisfactory. The product’s use of granule free base was designed to be less abrasive, instead it makes the product less effective. In addition the products fragrance was noted to be extremely strong for sensitive skin.
In conclusion, this product appeals to a consumer who is more interested in purchasing the product for name sake. There is no evidence to prove the product superior to a less expensive drug store brand, making the product a expensive splurge.
