My Current...Facial Exfoliators

Hi everyone,
Here are a couple of mini reviews of the facial exfoliators I'm using at the moment!
St Ives Invigorating Apricot Scrub
I really love this scrub, it does a really good job and is quite abrasive but without being harsh on the skin. I use this in the mornings, about 2 or 3 times a week, I love it's fresh, fruit scent.
Soap and Glory The Greatest Scrub of All Facial Exfoliator
This is quite a gentle scrub, with 'Smooth-boost spheres' which pop when you're washing your face, which I'm not sure if it does your face any good, but it adds novelty value. This scrub's quite creamy and moisturising which I find nice, especially in the evening which is when I use this the most. I recently looked at the ingredients though and discovered that it contains mineral oil which is meant to be pretty bad for the skin and can clog up pores.         :( But I do like this scrub and will continue to use it unless it suddenly starts breaking me out, but this is my third tube so it should be ok. :)
What are your favourite scrubs? Any you think I should try?
Thanks for reading,


  1. i forgot how rocky st ives is i need to pick me some up to exfoliate as well

  2. Ooh these look nice. I usually turn to st ives for scrubs. Need to look into s&g skincare :)

    1. This is the first st ives scrub ive used, really liking it, might have to try others from the range :) maybe I should do a post of mini reviews on the S&G skincare I've tried. Would that be helpful? xx

  3. I really like the st ives one. And their body lotions are amazing, so great for winter.
