So, today while I was in the shower, I felt a strong urge to do a product review! I have never been a fan of Clean & Clear...not trying to hate, but when I buy a drugstore brand for my face, I default to Neutrogena. I love Neutrogena and that brand just works for me! So, how did I end up with a Clean & Clear product? Last summer, we were going on a trip so I hit up the $1.00 travel size products at Target. I wanted an exfoliator, and Clean & Clear Morning Burst Facial Scrub (Oil Free) is the only product that was offered, so I scooped it...and I am SO GLAD that I did! This has stayed in my shower ever since I bought the little travel size.
-It smells absolutely amazing!!!!!!! This product has a strong citrus scent that I absolutely love. Sometimes, when I don't even need to exfoliate, I just open up the bottle to smell it in the shower. Seriously...I sound like a freak, but it smells in.cred.i.ble.
-I am not sure why it is called a "morning burst" scrub. I use this anytime I want, whether it be when I wake up or exfoliating after washing my face and removing makeup at night. I am thinking that the strong scent could possibly be why it's a morning scrub...because it sort of "wakes" you up!
-Confession: I use this as an all over exfoliator. Not just for my face...why? Because I sometimes like to exfoliate my legs before shaving...I feel like it makes them smoother before a shave. Also, I like to use this on my arms and then slather lotion on when I get out of the shower. I can't explain it...I just love this stuff.
-I love love love the texture. It is an exfoliator, with a gel base. So, even though it's removing dead skin, it still feels like it's hydrating me at the same time. Does this make sense? Probably not until you take the plunge and try it yourself!
-Price: $6.99 at Walgreens (and worth every penny). I am sure prices very at different drugstores/online.
**Last thought- while writing this post, "exfoliator" has been underlined
as if I'm misspelling it. For the life of me, I can't figure out how to
spell it....um, sorry if I have had it wrong the entire time.
What exfoliators do you like? Is there another that I need to know about? It would take a lot of convincing to sell me on another, but I absolutely looooveeeee reading about other peoples' favorite products, so please share! Have a great hump day! It's almost the weekend :)
