Hey everyone! So yesterday, I went to Bliss to pick up my normal face scrub, and it was sold out. Since a new shipment isn't expected for three weeks, I took it as a sign to try something new—and who better to turn to than my fellow beauty junkies?
For this week's Beauty Mark It challenge, I'd like to know which facial scrubs and exfoliators you can't live without. Tell me by Beauty Marking your favorites and tagging your choices with the phrase "face scrub." I'll feature the readers' favorites on BellaSugar next Tuesday, July 17.
Summertime means baseball — and skin care — so now seems like a perfect time to tell you about Derek Jeter Driven, the men's grooming brand from the Yankees shortstop. This stuff would make great gifts for Father's Day, which is right around the corner. Plus, right now, if you spend $20 on Driven products at Avon, you get a free men's travel grooming kit.
The line includes a few different fragrance options, like eau de toilette spray ($25), aftershave ($20), and body wash ($8). But even cooler are the skin-pampering products, such as Driven Foaming Face Scrub ($7.50) and Daily Moisturizer SPF 15. Maybe since the brand was created by a baseball player, you can actually convince your dude to use it.
First, let me make one thing very clear: I was not blessed with soft skin, particularly on my face. It's hard enough to keep my combination skin looking smooth, with its oily spots, flaky patches, and occasional blemishes. But getting it to feel soft to the touch has always been fairly impossible. That is, until I discovered the life-changing Modern Friction face scrub from Origins ($36).
In the past, I have steered away from so-called dermabrasion products, because I was afraid they would irritate my skin. But this product does quite the opposite: It gets rid of irritation, uneveness, dry patches, and dullness by gently resurfacing your face all over. After the scrub, my face has a ruddy glow, but it looks polished and not the slightest bit angry, so read more
I've long lusted after the Skin Milk line at the drugstore, mainly because of the adorably retro and oh-so-wholesome packaging. Now, after trying the Skin Milk Facial Scrub Exfoliate ($5.49), I'm happy to say the brand's appeal is more than superficial. The bargain buy has a gritty yet gentle texture that gets rid of flakes, but it's also nice and foamy, so it's fun to use.
Apparently, it — like milk — is enhanced with Vitamins A, D, and E, but it's tough to know what that's doing for my face. I'm far more enamored by the scent, so read more
