Elemis Fresh Skin Exfoliating Face Wash - £11.99
Whatever the season, healthy glowing skin will never go out of style. Well, in my opinion anyway. I know lots of lovely girlies who love using masks and treatments with AHA and other such things to achieve gorgeous, bright looking skin. Being a bit of a skincare junkie I own a fair few - but for me nothing will ever work better than a good old facial scrub. A post will be coming your way very soon on all my favourites, but for now I just had to fill you in on the latest one that has completely wowed me.
I came across the Elemis Fresh Skin Exfoliating Facial Wash whilst hunting for some boyfriend-friendly skincare in Superdrug (more to come on the boyfriend-friendly skincare too). I was instantly drawn to the face scrub and was super excited by the fact that the ingredients (to my knowledge) appear nice and friendly - no parabens or sulfates to be seen. It's a really great range for me because it's been targeted at the 18 - 25 age range, so this is great if you're looking to start a basic skincare routine and want to invest in affordable products without any nasty ingredients.
The scrub itself is very similar to the Nude miracle mask - so if you're looking for something similar without the AHA this might be right up your street. It smells lovely, kind of fruity and has small jojoba beads - making it more gentle and far less abrasive than most normal scrubs. After cleansing I gently massage this into my skin and then remove with warm water and a face cloth. The next morning my skin looks super bright and has a really fresh glow to it. This was one of those products that I use and upon my morning mirror inspection a little "oooh" escapes me.
This baby sits between budget and high end for me, at £11.99 it wasn't bank breaking and is far cheaper than any origins scrubs - definitely one to give a go if you find that cheaper scrubs have a tendency to make your skin red and blotchy. Yuck!
