This is a review of Vie Buff & Glow Daily Facial Scrub which I have been using for a few weeks now. I have not used a lot of Virgin Vie products before but believe them to be of high quality so I was delighted to give this one a try.
The product comes in a tube sized 125ml and has a peach coloured body and a silver flip top lid. It is easy to flip the lid and squeeze out a walnut sized blob to use on your face.
I find this product easier to use in the shower and have recently been gravitating towards the shower since the hot weather began. I just squeeze a blob out that is a small walnut size and rub it between my palms to even out the layer that I then gently rub in circular motions on to my face. It is easy to rinse off in the shower too so you are not left with little bits on your face or neck.
What is it like?
The buff and glow is an exfoliating product but as it is intended for the face it is a very fine grain within a luxurious creamy cleanser. It stays on the face well until you are ready to rinse. The best thing for me about the product is the fragrance, it smells lovely and fruity and I can't decide whether it is peachy or mangoes I can smell!
I have a few darker areas of skin on my face that I am working on and whilst I know I won't completely get rid of them without major surgery or expense, I am doing my best using spf, cleansers and exfoliators so at least they won't get worse during pregnancy.
I really like this product. It was great value for money and I wouldn't mind stocking up on a few more tubes at that price! The results have been clean and soft skin, I don't even feel like it needs moisturising after the shower which is unusual for my skin.
Price and availability
This is the best bit! I picked up my tube from the local 99p shop so it was a great bargain. If you don't have one of these shops near you, it is available widely on ebay (pound shop wheeler dealers) or on Amazon for £3.50 (+ £1.50 p&P).
I like everything about this product and feel my skin has taken to it very well. I only bought one tube out of caution in case I didn't like it but I will be going back for more next time I am in town. I would recommend this product and am happy to give it 5/5 stars.
