Exfoliation is key. It eliminates dead skin cells and polishes the skin, refines the pores and smoothens wrinkles
L’Oréal has released new fruit-based facial- and lip-scrubs.
You can choose from 3 different ones:
- The Grapeseed scrub which promises to brighten dull skin.
- The Kiwi scrub, which supposedly purifies and unclogs pores for oily skin.
- The Cocoa scrub, which is designed to nourish dry skin.
Since I have been having quite some ‘problems’ with my skin lately (a lot of impurities)and I decided to test the kiwi Scrub to see if this would really help.
I bought this at the store for €10,99.
The l’Oreal website promises the following:
My first impression:
The instructions say to start off by removing all make-up and clean the face, before using the scrub.
While opening the scrub, the first thing you notice is the green color with little black pits in it. It looks just like a smashed up kiwi. The second thing is the smell. The scrub just has a really nice, fruity and fresh smell.
The feel of the scrub on my hands is kind of sticky, but in a nice way.
So off we go to the application of the scrub on my face. The instructions say to put a thin layer on my face, then add some tepid water and massage the whole face, with exception of the contour of our eyes. The scrub contains little sugar particles. You can feel them, but they are really gentle and it doesn’t hurt or burn the skin. It can also be used on the lips, so I decided to try that as well, right away. After massaging for some time, the scrub needs to be removed with tepid water.
So how does my face feel after using this scrub? My skin feels clean, bright and smoother. My lips also feel very soft and pink.
You’re supposed to use this 3 times a week to see good results. Am I going to use it more? The answer is yes, because I really liked the way my skin feels after the scrub. I do think this could be an easy and effortless way to take that little bit extra take of your skin in just 5minutes.
Let me know of you test it out!
