Reducing My Oldies Stash – Tesco Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Face Scrub With Grapefruit & Cranberry

Hi there! Today’s review is about Tesco’s Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Face Scrub.

This product contains salicylic acid, vitamin C, and grapefruit and cranberry extracts. And it promises to enegise, brighten, exfoliate and purify skin.

This scrub is supposed to be used like every other scrub – just massage it into your skin in circular motions, and make sure you don’t get this stuff into your eyes. 🙂

How’s the scrub? I think it’s quite good! It’s effective but also gentle. I can see and feel that it exfoliates my skin properly, but it doesn’t feel too harsh. Cool!

The mixed fruits fragrance isn’t very spectacular, but it’s not unpleasant. It’s perfectly alright – so I have no reason to complain.

Tesco’s Pro Formula Fresh Skin Brightening Face Scrub is £3 for a 150ml tube.

100% Cruelty-Free – Montagne Jeunesse Candyfloss Scrub

Hi there! Yesterday I showed you another mani that I did for the A-Z Nail Art Challenge. And today’s post is about Montagne Jeunesse’s Candyfloss Scrub which is exclusive to Primark (where it’s 90p).

This sugar scrub mask is easy to use. Apply the product and massage it over your face. Leave it alone for 10 to 15 minutes. Then rinse.

I think this mask is effective because you exfoliate your skin twice – the first time when you apply the mask, the second time when you rinse it off.

And the mask is fun too! The candy floss fragrance is sweet and authentic, and the gooey texture of the mask makes you think you really have some sort of sugary paste on your face. Awesome fun!

All in all, I would recommend this mask, and I will buy it again. Montagne Jeunesse’s Candyfloss Scrub is certified cruelty-free. It’s BUAV-approved, and it carries the Leaping Bunny logo.

Osiris Avisé Apricot Facial Scrub

Osiris Facial ScrubHi there! Today’s post is about Osiris Avisé’s Apricot Exfoliating Facial Scrub. I bought this product ages ago. Back then I was happy to use abrasive scrubs on my face. But I’m no longer doing that.

Nowadays most people know that scrubs with crushed apricot kernels and walnut shells are too harsh for the face. That’s because these scrubs can cause tiny cuts on the skin surface. Bacteria really love these microscopic cuts – they’ll settle in and then they’ll give you spots. Yikes!

If you were ever wondering why your face would break out in spots on the same day (or the day after) you’ve used a harsh face scrub, it’s more likely than not that the scrub is to blame.

I had the same problem. But guess what, I stopped using harsh scrubs on my face – and I haven’t had any issues since.

Anyhoo, since I’m a beauty and toiletries hoarder, I have a few harsh face scrubs left in my stash. I’m not throwing the scrubs away (I paid for them!), but I don’t want to give them away either (I really wouldn’t want a friend to use this stuff on their face).

So I’m using these scrubs as body scrubs! This particular scrub is actually quite alright. It’s not as thick as St. Ives’ scrubs, so it’s easier to use. And it smells a lot better than St. Ives’ scrubs too! I’m happy to continue to use this scrub on my body. However, I don’t think I’d repurchase this product once it’s finished.

Have you tried any other products from this brand? If so, please let me know. I’d love to hear what you think.

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Superdrug Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Scrub

Hi there! Today’s post is about Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Scrub (with natural apricot kernel granules) which I picked up for half price (£2.45) not too long ago. This scrub is a limited edition product – needless to say I felt that I had to have it right away. 😉 So how’s the scrub? Is it any good? Read on, and I’ll let you know.
Superdrug Mango Papaya Body Scrub
When I first opened the tub, I wasn’t blown away by the fragrance of this product. I thought it didn’t smell very natural. However, once I started to use the scrub, I changed my mind. That’s because once the scrub hit my skin, it smelled fruity, juicy and summery – and I realised the mango and papaya fragrance is actually quite authentic.

The scrub is also very effective. It removes dead skin cells and reveals soft and smooth skin almost instantly. This is what every body scrub should be like! So yes, I do like this body scrub, and I would recommend it. So if you’re looking for a body scrub that smells of juicy fruits and summer, look no further!

Superdrug’s Vitamin C Boost Mango & Papaya Body Scrub is available as 200ml for £4.99. But don’t miss out on deals – Superdrug does half price and BOGOF deals very often.
