Hey, GlamMies!! How are we doing today?? Are you enjoying your summer weather? I know it's been so super duper warm here, and the sun has been out everyday. I've enjoyed spending time out in the sun getting my tan on (not really. I'm still pale. ugh). Ahh, yes, summer is my favorite time of year. It's so beautiful, and warm, and I'm so very thankful for summer.
But, with summer comes different skin struggles. I know in the summer, my skin is more oily and red throughout the day. What works for me in the winter, doesn't always work for me in the summer. It's important to change our skin care routine to adapt to our ever-changing skin!
I've grown to love face scrubs and exfoliating masks. I have been avid about the Biore charcoal scrub, and I really love the way it feels on my skin. But, when I went to my local drugstore to pick some more up, THEY WERE OUT. I know, how do they have the audacity to be out of MY face scrub? (BTW, totally kidding- I wasn't mad) Any who, I had to adapt and overcome. out of the corner of my eye, I saw this gem, and decided to give it a try- The Garnier Blackhead-eliminating Charcoal Facial scrub.
I have to say, this scrub really surprised me. I know Garnier is a good brand, I've used their moisture renewal cream for years, but I've had bad luck with their scrubs. But, this charcoal scrub works really well on my skin. It is coarse enough to feel like it's really getting down into your pores, but not coarse enough to hurt and damage your skin. I will say, it says may cause a light tingling feeling, and for me, it was more of an ice cold feeling, but it didn't hurt, just felt really cold. When I rinsed it off, my skin felt so smooth and soft. I was really pleased with this. I will remind you- it is always a good idea to moisturize after a scrub, because they do dry your skiing out.
I hope you guys will have just as good of an experience with this as I had, it was so worth trying. It retails in my area for about $8, and it works really well for being that cheap.
