time to exFALLiate {scrubs}

Its that time of year again, time to exFALLiate! Really, its always a good time to exfoliate but when that cold front starts to veer this way my skin begins to look blah. The natural glow from the Summer months fades quickly and skin begins to shed like a snake. No need to look flaky in the process, with a little facial scrub intervention say goodbye to dead skin.

Bioré Warming anti-blackhead cream cleanser; Bioré is not just for teens! Just as blackheads aren't exclusive in your teens either. In my mid-thirties and I still get blackheads (not as noticeable to some) but I see those pesky dots on my nose. Although its technically a cleanser I use it as a scrub because it has little scrubbies & its water-activated warming clay feels great. Contains pore-penetrating 2% salicylic acid. Caution for sensitive skin due to warming effect.

Éclos Anti-Aging Instant Radiance Facial Scrub; an impulse buy that didn't disappoint. Although not indicated on the box, this scrub is actually a warming scrub. Not sure about the anti-aging benefits but love the exfoliating grains in this scrub, skin feels smooth and hydrated afterwards. Due to warming effect sensitive skin take caution.

Vichy Pureté Thermale Softening Exfoliating Cream; a good option for sensitive skin types as not as many grains as above scrubs and in a cream formula. Also paraben-free! Skin is left hydrated and smooth.

Beauty and Truth Illuminating Scrub; very fine microdermabrasion scrub in a fluffy creamy soufflé. Love the feel of this scrub, works well around the crevice of the nose and gets all the gunk out. Contains sugar-cane, so don't be tempted to eat it.

Live Clean: Fresh Face smoothing facial scrub; in general Live Clean products are a safe bet. They are inexpensive and easily found at your local store. They are also 98% plant-based and free of basically alot of crap found in skincare today. Grains of corn-cob make this a gentle scrub therefore a great option for sensitive types.

What are your current favourite scrubs? Do you tend to scrub more in the colder months or less?
