I had to look up Caviar finger lime and it’s a rather intriguing fruit. It looks like a gherkin on the outside, on the inside it’s bursting with tiny pearls that look like Caviar.
Caviar Finger Lime
Proven to brighten and even out complexion this Australian native plant extract is rich in AHAs (Alpha Hydroxy Acids), known for their natural chemical exfoliation activity to dissolve shedding dead skin layers for a more radiant complexion.
I exfoliate regularly as my skin is prone to build up and congestion. I love that the Caviar Lime Exfoliator provides both physical and chemical exfoliation. The physical exfoliating action of Bamboo stem powder and natural pumice gently buffs away dead skin cells and smooth the skin while the fruit acids (AHA) from the Caviar lime helps to dissolve the dead skin cells.
The consistency is perfect, not too abrasive for sensitive skin types. It foams slightly and the scent is delightful, zesty and refreshing.
It gives my skin a proper deep down cleanse removing dead skin cells, dirt and excess oil.
The results of regularly using this are:
- Smooth, soft skin
- Less congestion
- Brighter and even skin tone
- Improves acne scarring and hyperpigmentation
- Better product absorption

First of all I love the packaging of this cream. It feels luxurious and uses sustainable glass jars and recyclable lids.
The consistency is lush and super creamy while being lightweight. There is also Rich day cream for those with mature or very dry skin.
It comes with a little spatula to scoop out the cream. A little goes a long way and it absorbs well into the skin without leaving any oily residue. My skin is soft, smooth, supple and balanced.
The formula is perfect for me, giving me a balance of hydration and moisture. It provides adequate hydration for my dehydrated skin, locks moisture in and creates a barrier against pollution.
It also smells amazing with a light, fresh, citrusy scent.
I’m so pleased I got to try out these products. I have absolutely loved using them and can’t wait to try out more products from their new skincare range.
