NEW IN: L’Oreal Scrubs

I have been loving the L’oreal face masks recently so once I saw the Smooth Sugars range be announced on Superdrug, you gotta know I went out and got them all! The range is split into three different scrubs which each target different potential skin problems. I personally love a physical exfoliator so I couldn’t wait to get home and crack them open. One major selling point for me is that they can be used on both lips and face; I currently buy a facial and lip scrub separately so this could save me a penny or two! These retail for £9.99 but I managed to snag them for £5.99 each!

The Glow Scrub is probably the one I was most excited for and it has entirely lived up to my expectations. Formulated with sugars and grapeseed oil it promises to polish and brighten the skin. It has an almost citrusy scent and the perfect amount of grit to exfoliate your skin perfectly. It has enough of a base that it keeps your skin hydrate but doesn’t leave an oily film. It also works great for your lips – an all round winner for me!

The Clear Scrub is an interesting one. It is quite a gloopy consistency when you look at it in the tub but it actually has a really fine grit to it which helps to pull those nasties from your skin. The Kiwi give the scrub a gorgeous fresh scent and out of the three I find it to have the oiliest base to it, but it still washes off well without leaving a film behind.

The Nourish Scrub is probably my least favourite of the three to be honest. Created with Cocoa butter it does have a rather strong chocolatey scent which I find almost nauseating. It is almost a solid balm and I’ve found it to be quite hard to work with, having to actually scrape it out of the pot before using it in my hands then onto my face. For me, the faff isn’t worth the output to be honest and I can’t see myself using this too much. I might try and use it on other parts of my body to get it gone but it is the least effective of the bunch!

If I had to rate them in levels of grittiness, it would be the Glow scrub first, then clear then nourish (this pretty much mimics them in order of my favourites too!).

Have you seen these in store or advertised? Do you prefer a physical or chemical exfoliator? Let me know!

  1. I don’t think I’ve even seen these around yet – that green one appeals to me, just because it looks like kiwis! I think I’d find the cocoa butter scent nauseating too – I can’t stand that sickly smell “raw” cocoa butter has!
