Avon Clearskin Invigorating Cleansing Scrub
Advantages: lovely clear skin.
Disadvantages: Agony If you get It In your eyes.
MMM.... a skin product, this one has to be my favourite, It Is an Avon product, I just love it.
It Is a facial scrub like none other I have tried. It is blue, a lovely shade of blue too. It has eucalyptus In It this Is what gives It the polo mint thing..
I discovered this a few years ago, my mam is my Avon rep, she gave me a tube of this to try. I liked It, If there was one thing I would say could be negative it would be that I find it just a bit harsh, while my skin isn't sensitive, I could imagine it irritating sensitive skin types.
Avon always has offers on with this range of products such as buy on get one free or three items for a fiver. This is the type of offer I look for and I put them away for birthdays Christmas etc. my family like using this product too.
I made my own recipe up once, It was using a dollop of this exfoliater and some cucumber whisked up and used as a type of scrubbing face mask.
The texture Is quite rough and dryish, it smells very minty and eucalyptus too. You massage it over wet face then rinse it off and pat dry. Avon say to only use It twice a week. And there is a caution withit that says avoid the eyes, well it makes your eyes water slightly when you use it never mind getting it in the eyes.
It may sound as though I am a bit negative with this product, I'm not however I can still see what other people may see wrong with the facial scrub even though I love It.
It cost me £3.25 for the one Item however in the next few orders being near to Christmas you will be able to pick it up for 3 for a fiver etc. It is in a 100ml tube which is quite chunky, I find that it lasts ages anyway as you only need a small amount, what I do is put a little on my hand and rub that in both hands before massaging over face.
There is a good sized list of ingredients, including some chemicals, however I haven't found anything in the product to irritate me.
Avon on the whole is very inexpensive and yet has a quality to its products.
Some other items in the Avon Clearskin range are..
Purifying gel cleanser,
Dual action ant-bacterial cleanser,
Deep cleansing cloths,
Cleansing pads for sensitive skin,
t-zone peel off clay mask,

All of these items are from£3 - £4 in the brochure that the order has just gone off for the offer is any 2 items for £3 now this is a mega bargain and I'm stocking up..
What Avon say about the product..
Micro particles are refreshing and eucalyptus then sweep away pore clogging dirt,oil,problem causing bacteria, and exfoliation-needed surface skin,so it looks radiant as it feels tingly fresh.
When I go out on the town, I use this In the shower mm It makes me feel so tingly fresh I would hate Avon to stop selling this, I don't think they will as Its got to be one of the best sellers. So go on, let your face feel like its sucking a polo mint..
Bit about eucalyptus..
scientific support and/or minimal health benefit.
Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies)
Eucalyptus was first used by Australian aborigines, who not only chewed the roots for water in the dry outback but used the leaves as a remedy for fevers. In the 1800s, crew members of an Australian freighter developed high fevers, but were able to successfully cure their condition using eucalyptus tea.
Thus, eucalyptus became well known throughout Europe and the Mediterranean as the Australian fever tree.
Eucalyptus oil is used to sterilize instruments and wounds, but recommended a steam inhalation of the vapor of its oil to help treat asthma, bronchitis, whooping cough, and emphysema.
None of this review has been cut copied or pasted It Is all based on my experience of using clearskin invigorating cleansing scrub. The eucalyptus bit Is what I resaerched on the internet. It Is also posted on the Ciao site under the same name..
Thank you once again,.. Caz. xx
