Face Exfoliators: Clarins vs. Superdrug
Friday, 13 March 2015
When it comes to face scrubs/exfoliators it's fair to say I'm very lazy. My daily skincare routine is usually just a quick cleanse, tone then moisturise. I decided I would spend a bit more time this year in 'sorting' my skin out, hence the reason why I've been making more of an effort to use a facial scrub/mask at least once a week.
I got this Vitamin E Superdrug Exfoliating Facial Scrub as I've used a few of the products from this range before (Hot Cloth Cleanser and the SPF 15 Radiance Moisture Cream). I have only used it a couple of times and have had to stop. I know I have sensitive skin but I actually can't express how rough it was on my face! I was even a little worried that it would scratch my skin and leave a few marks. I definitely won't be buying this again! I'd give it a disappointing 1/5.
On the other hand, this Clarins One-Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser has been a little dream in a bottle. This is designed to be used every day rather than just a one off weekly scrub like the one from Superdrug. I've been using this every other day alongside my other cleanser. I'm a big fan of things flavoured/smelling of orange, so when I seen this had orange extracts in it was a massive bonus. The exfoliating pieces in this are so tiny and gentle on the skin you could easily forget it's actually exfoliating and tackling clogged pores. A 5/5 and a big thumbs up from me Clarins!
What were your thoughts on these? Is there another face scrub that you'd recommend for me to try?
