I purchased it recently and have been using it twice weekly, usually on Mondays and Thursdays. It smells of honey and oats, lovely to start the day off with. This scrub is filled with soft almonds, natural honey and Vitamin E which cleanses and exfoliates the skin, leaving a clean and smooth surface for makeup application.
It is suitable for all skin types and below is a little demonstration on how I use it.
First, I apply a thin, even layer of scrub on my damp face and neck. Then, I wet my finger tips and gently exfoliate (in circular motions) from the centre of my face (where clogged pores are usually). From the nose area, move onto the forehead and chin. Move onto the cheeks and finally the neck area.
Remember not to apply too much pressure onto your skin, let the scrub and its active ingredients do the job. I constantly wet my finger tips during the entire exfoliating process as water acts as a smoothing agent. After exfoliating, I leave the scrub on for approximately 10 mins and rinse off with luke warm water and pat dry with either a sponge or a face towel. It leaves my skin feeling softer, cleaner and more radiant. And the best part is, it makes my skin feels supple and hydrated.
It has a pretty firm texture, grains are pretty densely packed and it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. Overall the grains are pretty soft with just a fraction of harder ones.
I am liking this product a lot at the moment and I am surely more open to trying more of Benefit’s skin and bodycare range.
Thank you for reading.
