Gone are the days where the rough apricot scrubs were the only exfoliant available to us. Sugar scrubs are something I’ve come to love for the winter as they hydrate… but today lets discuss the new Umbrian Clay Mattifying Face Exfoliant from Fresh.
These are the most miniscule (yet uber effective) granules I’ve felt in a face scrub yet, which to me means they are incredibly gentle… unlike that apricot nonsense. My skin has yet to look inflamed after use, only “fresh.”
The clay components help to absorb oil and extract impurities, and the chamomile and lavender extracts sooth your skin so it doesn’t appear irritated. I leave the shower feeling clean and super duper smooth. I suggest using this scrub two to three times a week so as not to dry out your skin, and always follow with a moisturizer and SPF.
If you suffer from dry skin, I have a post coming soon for another scrub that is sugar based :).
