I've been lazy, I'll admit it. I've been meaning to try the Acure Brightening Facial Scrub for a while, but then I grabbed another tube of the same old facial scrub I've been using for a year or so. I wasn't even that happy with the one I'd been using, because of a couple of questionable ingredients, but sometimes it's just easier to go with what you know. Then I ran out of that one a couple of weeks ago, and still didn't get around to buying the Acure Brightening Facial Scrub until yesterday.
So I haven't scrubbed my face properly in a couple of weeks, until I jumped in the shower this morning with the Acure scrub. And all I can say is - why did I wait so long?
I love it - the smell is gentle and fresh, and not at all fake (the fragrance comes from essential oils) and it's definitely not overpowering.
You don't need to use much of the scrub at all. I was surprised at how little I needed. I put a dot about as large as a 10c piece in my palm, and exfoliated my face, my chest, the tops of my shoulders and both arms with this amount. Clearly, you only need a tiny bit if you're just doing your face, which makes it very economical, too.
It was a little bit more drying than I'm used to, but then I have super-dry skin. I jumped out of the shower and immediately applied a serum, then my usual moisturiser and my face was fine - not dry at all.
The chlorella, chlorophyll and sea kelp make it a spinach-y green, and the French green clay and lemon really help to scrub.
But the best thing was how much better my skin felt and looked! It has been a couple of weeks, and I usually exfoliate twice a week, so my skin was looking a bit rough. A bit of a polish with the Brightening Facial Scrub, though, and it was good as new! My skin feels so much smoother and fresher.
I love exfoliating - it removes dry and dead skin cells, and gets rid of dirt and blackheads (especially for oily skin). And now it seems that I have a new love - the Acure Brightening Facial Scrub
