Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant

This Aveda Exfoliant review will provide you with the information you need to determine whether or not this non-abrasive skincare treatment can really clarify the skin and refine its texture without causing dryness and irritation with continued use.

Editor’s Rating


Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant is unique due to the fact that it is an exfoliating skincare treatment, but it isn’t abrasive. This product is suitable for all skin types. Salicylic acid sweeps away oil, dirt, and other pore-clogging impurities to reveal smoother[1], softer skin but can also cause skin irritation. With continued use, your complexion will appear brighter and more even in tone but you should always perform a patch test before spreading on skin.

For best results, apply Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant to your cleansed face and neck using a cotton pad. You may use this skincare treatment up to two times per day, during your morning and evening skincare routines. Be sure to follow up with your preferred moisturizer and an SPF of at least 30 during the day for optimum results.

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant retails for $62.50 per 16.9 fl. oz. of product on several well-known skincare retailer sites.

Witch Hazel and Salicylic Acid

The Final Word

Aveda Botanical Kinetics Exfoliant can exfoliate away dead skin and other impurities, despite the fact that it is non-abrasive. Although this may sound like the perfect exfoliating treatment for your sensitive skin, there are several issues we think you should consider. The amount of salicylic acid included in this formulation is simply not high enough to adequately exfoliate away impurities. Customers that have used this product would agree that this product does very little to remove dead skin and other impurities.
