In my teenage years I would use Clean and Clear a lot as I did suffer with bad skin, and their products would always be great for sensitive skin. As I got a little bit older and more skin conscious I moved on to buying more pricier products as I was naive I thought they would be better for my skin. We all know this is not true as you can really find some little gems on the racks of your drugstore. But when I am looking for something new to add to my skincare routine, I always think that buying something a bit more pricey will help to make my skin better. I do think that some of the best skincare finds are from the more expensive side of the scale, but in this instant I found a absolute bargain which I am loving at the moment. The culprit is the Clean and Clear Morning Energy - Skin Brightening Daily Facial Scrub. A very long name for such a simple product.
When I come home to visit my family I still have a lot of skincare bits here, so I don't bring my usual daily routine staples with me as I have a small suitcase and the products are always so big. Every time I come home and use this facial scrub, I always say I will take it back with me because my skin gets on with it so well. I just don't know what it is about it, but it leaves your skin bright and refreshed in the morning, and you skin is silky smooth. I love it when you feel like products have really cleansed your skin and this is exactly how this feels. It contains little bursting micro beads which really get into the nitty gritty of your skin and gets rid of any traces of anything on your skin, leaving you with a nice blank canvas for the day. It has a lovely lemony and citrus scent to the scrub, and the texture of the scrub is not too abrasive for the skin. Facial scrubs have come under scrutiny from some skin care specialists as they are said to spread acne and strip your skin of their natural oils. However I have been seeing a dermatologist for years and she has always said that it is all about finding what works for you - and this definitely works for me. I picked this up for Bodycare for £1.99, but I have seen it in Boots and Superdrug for around the £2.99 mark.
I really recommend this if you are looking for something simple to add to your daily routine, I have been using this morning and night and have really been loving the results.
