Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It
Date: 01/09/12, updated on 01/09/12 (8 review reads)
Advantages: Nothing Positive i Can Think Of, This product Is Not For Me, But May Be Good For Other Skin Types.
Disadvantages: Very Drying,It Gave Me A Weird Rash, Felt As If Skin Was cut, Made my face Red, Made Skin Peel
My skin type: Very Pale,Sensitive,dry/combination skin.
i Really Wanted to love this scrub, it got raved about on youtube cosmetic videos, it sucks that it messed with my face and stripped it dry.
this scrub is about 7£ you can get it at boots, it can be found on sale sometimes for much cheaper.
The Package: is not like the picture above i would say the package is more slender but taller then the one in the picture it's 125ml. and it says ''scrub your nose in it'' on a pink squeeze tube with a flip up cap.
the picture on dooyoo is of a different product from the same range.. just clarifying..
i'm not one to like pink much, but i did like the vintage look of this product,as do many people.
The Product - when popping the cap open you can see this blue gritty thick cream, i personally love the color, the product can also be used as a mask not only a scrub, so this is pretty much a two in one product.. there are a lot more gritty pieces in it compared to other scrubs I've tried, so i made sure
to scrub lightly when i used it.. if your using it for a scrub you only need a penny size amount , if your using it as a mask you will need a 2p size amount at least.
the product doesn't spread very well, it says to apply on a slightly damp face but the cream drys on your face very quickly so you have to spread it out on your face as quickly as you can to save yourself from going back for more product. i've tried doing it this way and having my face more wet.
i found if my face is more wet it's much easier to apply and there is less pulling of the skin.
the product is a fruit-acid formula it says not to use it more then twice a week, you Massage gently in circular motions and rinse, then dry face then moisturize.
Crappy experience with product-
i only used this scrub once a week maybe one time twice a week, because knowing that my skin is sensitive i thought it would be safer to use it less then recommended.. after using it a couple of times, my sink felt cleaner but i also felt as if my pores got bigger, as if the grainy bits were scratching my pores or something weird... anyway, eventualy skin started to start burning near my nose and around the mouth areas the most, and there was loads of red bumps on my nose spreading to my cheek bones like some weird rash, my skin started to peel really badly for 2 weeks ( i stopped using it once i saw the bumps and saw redness) it felt like i had tiny scratches all over those areas and it would really burn when i put a light moisturizer non oil non fragrance on it.. it took awhile for the natural oils of my face to come back.. skin was very badly dry and no amount of moisturizer cream was helping.
it was like my skin got sucked dry..
it took a week and a half for the bumps to go away completely.
and it took 3 weeks for my face to stop peeling.
i scrubbed lightly with this stuff.. it was definitely way to strong for my face.
also the product smells of Mirror Cleaner ,very toxic smelling yet had a hint of SPA type smell in it.
it took me a couple of uses to get use to the smell.
to be totally honest I'm scared to use this product again... and i don't recommend it for anyone that has large pours,acne,dry skin or sensitive skin. i would say this scrub is good for people who have normal skin and dont normally have skin problems.. if you know you have weird skin, please stay away from this stuff it is way to strong a formula.
i hope to try Saint Ives Apricot scrub next, i hope it will be more gentle then this one.
Summary: I'm Staying away from Acid Formula Scrubs X_x ,
