It's very important that you read the instructions on this! It says to apply it to a dry face. The first time I tried it, I applied it to a wet face, and did not feel nearly enough exfoliation. However, when used on a dry face, it's gritty enough for my taste (and I like my scrubs GRITTY).
This scrub smells amazing. It's reminiscent of a brown sugar pecan cookie.
The only thing that turns me off to this is the fact it has coconut oil and cocoa butter in it. They're not super high on the ingredients list, but it is still on there. For my acne-prone skin, these ingredients really concern me, because they breaks me out terribly. The different kinds of oils also leave a really hydrating feel after you wash the product off, which on my oily skin feels more like a film, which I don't like. So I just scrub before my cleanser, and then wash the oil off. If you're concerned about breaking out from the oil, this works well as a lip scrub or a body scrub. I use this on my arms before I hop in the shower to help control my keratosis pilaris. However, you don't really get that much in the jar, so you'd go through it really quickly if you use it on the body.
I'd say the product generally is quite good. You'll enjoy this more if you have normal to dry, non-sensitive skin. For those of us with oily, breakout prone skin, we'll have to put in a little more effort to make this work.
Obviously, this product was not going near my acne-prone, sensitive face. I decided to try it on my lips, as it is also marketed as a lip scrub. The exfoliant was not powerful enough for lips and it tasted really bad when it got in my mouth. I think that if they increased the size of the sugar and took out the fragrance, this would be a good lip scrub. I also tried it on my legs, but the exfoliant was not powerful enough. It also left a film on my tub that made it really slippery. The fine exfoliant is a very good and gentle size for the face, but the comedogenic ingredients just make this product unusable.
L'Oréal Pure Sugar Scrub Nourish & Soften
I'm not going to lie, I was really excited to try out this product when I learned that I was selected for this L'oreal campaign! However, after the first few uses, I knew right away that this scrub was not the one for me. The scent was nice, but the product itself is very heavy-feeling on the skin and left a really weird film on my face after I had washed it off (I honestly felt like I had to wash my skin again to remove it because it was so uncomfortable).
My skin did not feel clean or smooth after each use like my other exfoliants, but thankfully did not break out my super sensitive skin. It did leave my face looking red and hot-feeling after washing though; I'm not sure what that was.
But overall, would not recommend. It smells nice, but did not do what it's supposed to do and also did not feel nice on my skin. I'm using it now to scrub my legs.... It's definitely not strong enough to remove the dead skin from there, but it will do since it has no use for my face routine. Sorry, L'oreal!
It is necessary to read the instructions for this product and to use it on dry skin. I prefer very strong exfoliants for my face and I didn't find this exfoliating enough for me. It was, however, a great texture for a lip exfoliant (something it also advertises).
This is a very hydrating product, as it contains coconut oil and other moisturizers. I felt that it did a great job for moisture, but left an oily residue on my face once I rinsed it off. I was afraid that it would make me break out.
This product suggests use for 3 times a week. Despite the size of the jar, this doesn't contain very much product. To me, it wouldn't be worth the price to use so frequently.
I was so excited to try this product out. Slather on dry skin, give it a gentle rub, then rinse off with water. I liked that the formula felt moisturizing and the exfoliating beads were fine and didn’t feel too rough. The product also smells great, kind of like chocolate!
This is a product that with prolonged use shows better results. While it does the job of exfoliating, I felt that the formula wasn’t easy to wash away with just water; even after rinsing, I felt the product still on my skin and always need to use another cleanser to remove residue. For that, I wouldn’t use this as my main scrub.
I also hope to see that L’Oréal moves towards animal cruelty products, which is my main reasoning for not using a majority of their products.
Otherwise it’s a fun and great smelling product!
