The Manual Exfoliators
Exfoliation is a key part in any step of my beauty routine but for a long time though I strayed away from the manual form of it especially on my face. My love for the chemical kind are well documented and I've lost count how many times I've sung the praises of the Pixi Glow Tonic but it makes such a big difference to my complexion. Over the years I must have tried a 101 scrubs but most of them have been so scratchy and caused a lot more harm than good but finally I think I've found three that I can really depend on.
Finding a body exfoliator that doesn't just slip and slide straight of the skin as you soon as you apply it is quite a triumph and I love the Soap & Glory Pulp Friction. The witty names of S&G products sucker me in every time but the real selling point of this product for me is the scent, the only way to describe it is a delicious handsome man. It is a thick paste that clings to the skin so you don't waste any product and it leaves my limbs silky smooth.
I've recently really got into exfoliating my hands and feet and I've been using the Organic Surge Gardeners Hand Scrub*. I don't know why I never really thought about using a scrub on my hands considering how much of a hand cream advocate I am. Again like the S&G offering although this is a lot more like a traditional scrub it still sticks to the skin and once rinsed away my hands are unbelievably smooth. Finally for my face I've been loving the Una Brennan Vitamin C Brighten Gentle Polish, the beads in this are incredibly fine and smooth to touch so it really is just like polishing your face instead of scrubbing. I will either use this alone after cleansing if my skin needs a boost or another way to use it is before a face mask.
