The Daily Exfoliation

We're coming into the Spring/Summer season down South and it's time I paid a little more attention to my limbs. 30° plus temperatures call for a little more skin exposure than I'd typically go for, and that means a few extra minutes in my day dedicated to some skin up keep. Hair removal, moisture and a little faux tan, you get the idea. Recently I've been really appreciating the effect of a little daily exfoliation. I've found using something with a little buff in my daily rotation helps slough away dead skin cells and reveal the softer skin beneath. The smooth skin left behind is all ready to soak up the post-shower moisturiser and makes a great base for any forays into fake tan.

Two of my recent favourites are both on the rather budget friendly side. Both similarly 'scrubby', I'd say the key difference is the scent. Garnier's Beauty Oil Scrub is the more mature scent of the two, slightly floral and more of a night time scent for me. It's also just slighty more nourishing than the Anatomical's offering. Alternatively, Anatomical's The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub is not quite as thick but smells amazing. I'm a huge citrus scent fan and find that it's perfect for a morning wake-me-up.

Are you a fan of the daily exfoliation? What's your product pick?

  4. I need to try that Garnier one! I've heard so many amazing things. I adore Babe Scrubs because they're so so so moisturising.
