Free from abrasive particles, this honey-coloured gel is comprised of sugars and ultra-fine oils. On contact with the skin, it transforms into a light oil and then into a milk that gently removes dead skin cells and impurities during rinsing. The skin is smoother and softer, the complexion purified and brightened. Rich in essential trace elements and vitamins, it leaves the skin relaxed, purified and delightfully replenished. For all skin types, even sensitive skin.

A shopper asked: so is this used after i clean my face? also what can you reccommend for a face peel? Sep 24, 2012

Kaitlyn L: I use it to clean my face, though I don't use it every day as I use Retinoids so my skin is sensitive. I don't think there is a need to cleanse, as this really leaves skin feeling clean and polished. It is not as intense as a peel, but more of a beautifully scrubbing cleanser that could be used in between a peel or mask. Hope that helps! Sep 24, 2012

Charlene M: This is used on clean dry skin. It is so unique because there are no abrasive particles yet it provides a mild exfoliating action and it leaves my sensitive skin refreshed, soft and clear. I use it in place of a peel since it has a cumulative effect over time - better than a harsh peel. Sep 24, 2012

Anna W: Because I have very sensitive, normal/combination skin with the tendency to get red easily I am careful with the exfoliators. In the past I tried several brands of exfoliators from and was disappointed with the results.

However, after a close friend of mine convinced me to try the YSL product I became to believe that with the right exfoliator nothing is impossible.

The YSL Top Secret Natural Action Exfoliator is an amazing product that does miracles. No wonder, it is called "Top Secret." On the market there is a Japanese brand of exclusive gold-based beauty products that offers similar exfoliator, but the price that company charges for their exfoliator is x3 times as much when compared to YSL.

The YSL exfoliator is gentle, has delicate scent and is perfect for very sensitive skin (like mine). In my case, this product works very well even near the eye area (though the instruction suggests omitting that specific place).

I use the YSL exfoliator depending on my needs - once or twice a week - either in the morning after washing off my night cream, or in the evening - after completely removing the make-up. In either case - the exfoliator works MIRACLES, making my face looks absolutely stunning.

However, I do not use the exfoliator to remove the make-up, or more often than twice a week. One day, I may decide to do so, but for now, I am very happy with the outcome and how this absolutely amazing product works for me, hence I will continue my current routine.

Overall: 5 out of 5 stars for the YSL Top Secret Natural Action Exfoliator. Please keep this product in your beauty basket. It's absolutely amazing and it WORKS miracles. It makes face stunningly beautiful.

Megan V: It's definitely not a cleanser and does not foam up. I would recommend using as directed, after cleansing, 2-3 times a week. It is very gentle, and I'm sure people use more often, but I'd stick to using it as an exfoliator. Mar 25, 2012

Lisa P: Yes. I apply the exfoliator to my face using my fingertips. After a couple minutes you will feel the exfoliator change in consistency which means it's done. I then use cotton pads and a facial cleaner to wipe the exfoliator off. I then clean my face and apply a toner and moisturizer. Aug 20, 2012

Kaitlyn L: Yes, you just smooth it on dry skin, then rub in circles (it turns more liquid) in all over the face. Then splash on some cold water and it makes a lather- I then just smooth that around and rinse. Very easy! Aug 20, 2012

Sonia K: No, apply exfoliator on wet skin and massage it in circles so you remove the dead skin layers. It works very well! Enjoy the experience, the skin is then nice and soft.

Toni H: The product top secret natural action exfoliant or is non comedogenic. If you are sensitive or allergic to its ingredients it might cause irritation.

Top Secrets Natural Action Exfoliator

Overall rating

the best exfoliator for sensitive skin. Particle free which prevents oil production. You'll notice a difference with first use. Leaves face clean, exfoliated, but not at all dry. A must try and I've tried most of them. A little goes a long way. I'm 60 and olive skinned. LOVE!

From ancient Egyptiian times, women have nourished their skin using honey, an exlixer and nourishment for maintaining radiant healthy skin. Top Secrets Natural Skin Exfoliator is an exqusite treatment for beautful skn. Applied with gentle strokes to the face and neck, liquid honey feels like velvet, leaving the skin feeling pampered, hydrated and glowing. I use at least twice a week to maintain a healthy glow and nourish the skin cells.
