Face scrubs & Exfoliators

I've been putting this post off for a while now, but here it is~

From left to right -
Clinique 7 day Scrub Cream
L'Oréal Perfect Clean - Foaming Gentle Scrub (Exfoliating, All skin types)
Clean and Clear Oil Free Exfoliating Daily Wash

I think the Clean and Clear Exfoliating Daily Wash was probably the first face exfoliator that I used. It's super gentle for everyday and it's also oil free, which is perfect for people with normal/combination skin. It's got little micro-beads in it that help to clean out your pores and leaves your skin feeling cleansed and soft. I did repurchase this beacause I felt it really helped clean my face that bit further than just a face wash, but I think I wanted to invest in a better scrub that I can use once a week as a deep cleanse.

So that's when I bought the Clinique 7 Day Scrub Cream, along with the Clinique 3 step
(review is here). Unlike an exfoliator, a scrub is essentially like a body scrub with small granules in it, except they're smaller and more gentle for the face. I think when you use this, you really have to take your time and carefully massage it in to get some results. I've almost finished the tube and I've been using it with the Scrublet you get with the L'Oréal Perfect Clean, which I think helps to leather and unclog the pores.

I love the little Scrublet! It's small and time saving, so you only need to buff it all over your face a few times with the exfoliator and it's done~ I haven't used the L'Oréal exfoliator yet, it's just been sitting in the bathroom waiting to be used since I first got it in Superdrug at the introductory price! So I'll do a separate review on it, and I'm not sure what to expect.
