Exscrub Me?! Beautisol Facial Exfoliator Review

The first thing you notice about Exscrub Me?  is the creamy emollient base and the bright red exfoliation balls. I squeeze a small grape sized amount onto my fingertips and then use my right and left hands to spread and warm the scrub before I apply it to my face.
This is a very gritty scrub. I love it! It's very hard to find manual exfoliators with this much exfoliation material within the product. I find the base is more like a mousse than a heavy cream, as say, 7 Day Scrub cream Clinique. Exscrub Me? rinses away cleanly base-wise but I have to rely on the suds of a small amount of a facial cleanser followup to make sure all the exfoliation beads have washed off of my skin.

Suki Body : Sensitive Cleansing Bar

For all skin types, the Suki Body Sensitive Cleansing Bar with oat flour and fair trade Shea butter both softens and moisturizes your body skin. This heavy, hard-milled bar does not strip my skin or leave a film behind. The Sensitive Cleansing Bar smells of lemongrass, it's the same scent you're familiar with if you used their foaming exfoliating cleanser. Retailing for $11.99 at Pharmaca, the Suki body bar was a SELF Magazine 2013 Healthy Beauty award winner and I see why; my skin feels clean and comfortable. If you like Suki Skincare you're going to love this body bar, I highly recommend it. I will purchase it again and I rate it 4 solid stars out of 5.
