Le Edge: Next Generation in Exfoliation

About a month ago, I attended a Night Of Beauty hosted by Three Day Rule and Spaphile. Wasn’t sure what to expect, but I’m so glad I went! Champagne and goodie bags flowed throughout the night. Basically, I was in Beauty Heaven. They even had pamper stations, influencer lounges and retailers like Sole Society were showcasing their latest products!~

I received a lot of great products that night but was most excited to try out Le Edge: “The Next Generation in Exfoliation.” I was intrigued by the idea and couldn’t wait to try it.

“Le Edge is a hygienic personal exfoliating tool. Le Edge is precision designed to remove with ease dead skin cells and debris from the skin’s surface, revealing the newer younger cells and more radiant skin. Le Edge removes dulling surface debris such as toxins, oil, dirt, pollutants and dead skin cells. This process helps to restore the skin texture and by doing so, helps to reduce the size of the skin’s pores naturally.” ($34.95)


1st Attempt:
Le Edge is very easy to hold and the rubber handles prevent slipping. I was glad that the blade was dull and didn’t pose a treat of nicks or cuts. The first time I used the product, nothing seemed to happen. I expected to see dead skin cells, dirt, and oil to accumulate on the blades… but there was nothing. I started to question whether I was using the product correctly, so I decided to put it aside and review the directions again.

Short version of the directions I found online:
1. Use on wet skin under warm running water
2. Hold at 45-degree angle
3. Slide along the skin collecting the outer layer of dead skin cells, and debris such as soap, creams, oils, dirt, or instant tan remnants.

So looks like I was using it correctly, and was even right to expect ‘remnants’ of debris!

2nd Attempt:  I believe in 2nd chances, so I gave it another go. I really wanted this product to work because I love the idea! But alas… nothing! Ugh! This time, running the ‘blade’ along my wet arm tugged and irritated my skin and began to sting under the warm water! I have sensitive skin, so this may not happen to you. Just sharing my experience.

When I stepped out of the shower, I had to apply body lotion immediately because my skin felt unusually dry and tight… my skin began to sting again. :(

Overall: I’m not sure I can recommend this product at this point. I will give Le Edge one last try… but if I may be honest, I’m not that hopeful.
