I have to be honest, as much as I love exploring new skincare products, I can find it a little difficult sticking to a routine. With my skin feeling the desperate need for some sort of detox, I decided to pick up one of the L’Oréal Paris sugar scrubs that have recently made an appearance in stores.
Although there are a number of options to choose from in the sugar scrub range, I opted for the Smooth Sugar Clear Kiwi Face & Lip Scrub. This particular scrub contains 3 fine sugars and claims to tackle those pesky blackheads and purify your skin. This sounds right up my street considering I have been neglecting my skin whilst working long hours. It happens to all of us right?
The scrub takes effect when applied to clean skin and can be used on the face and lips. Use warm water and circular movements to spread the product and leave until the sugars have melted. After this process simply rinse off. It’s pretty fool-proof and it smells amazing.
After just one use I can see some changes. My skin feels smoother, more nourished and my pores look slightly clearer. L’Oréal recommend using this product 3 times a week so I’m interested to see how my skin changes over the next couple of weeks. I will say that for now, I’m glad I decided to give it a go. This is my first experience using a sugar scrub for anything other than my lips and I have to admit although I was excited to see how effective it is, I was concerned that the scrub would be overly messy and difficult to apply.
Thankfully it’s really not that messy, a little sticky maybe (of course it is sugar after all) but it’s not unpleasant. The application really is easy and washing away is a quick task so no long, harsh scrubbing is necessary. So far, I’m enjoying it. Have you given it a go?
