The Body Shop Seaweed Pore-Cleansing Facial Exfoliator

I've tried several facial scrubs, including Neutrogena Blackhead Eliminating Daily Scrub and St.Ives Apricot Scrub Gentle. I didn't like St.Ives Apricot Scrub because it's a bit too harsh for me even the one for sensitive skin. It's been sitting in my bathroom cabinet for 3 years. When I tossed it in the bin last week, there was still 90% of the product in the tube.

I was at The Body Shop having the itch to buy something but didn't know what to get. Doesn't that happen to you too? The salesperson recommended this scrub so I decided to give it a try.

I've been using it twice a week and I really like it. It doesn't dry my skin and I find it quite gentle. I squeeze about 1cm of the scrub and apply it all over my face and massage gently in circular motion until it gets a bit dry and then rinse it with water. The particles are almost the same size, or maybe slightly smaller than Apricot Scrub but definitely finer and more gentle to the skin.

I was surprised the first time I used this scrub. It removed 3 of my white heads. I've been getting some white/blackheads on my chin area recently and I've no idea why! It also removes dead skin flakes which no other scrubs I've tried before without making my skin red.

Are you using this product too? How do you like it? Do you have any favourite scrub which you'll recommend me to try?

  3. Rakhshanda: I hope it's available in India ;)

    Rinz: Yes, it does! It's a little miracle product for me. I hope it works for you too =)

  4. At the minute I'm using the Dermalogica Skin Prep Scrub which I love but this Body Shop one sounds fab. I dont think i've ever bought anything from the Body shop that I didn't like :)

  6. All Made Up: I always get my shower gel from The Body Shop but haven't really tried any of their skin care line. I'm glad I bought this scrub.
