Caroline Hirons might kill me for saying this (if she knew or cared who I was) but I love this manual exfoliator by Mádara.
As much as I love a chemical exfoliant sometimes I prefer something a little more traditional on my skin. A lot of ‘scrubs’ on the market are super abrasive and damaging for your skin but this is more luxurious on the skin so doesn’t feel like you’ve stripped your skin at all, instead you feel refreshed and glowing.
It’s an oil based scrub that you apply to dry skin and gently massage into the skin before adding a splash of water where it melts into more of a milk. So it cleanses, exfoliates all in one product leaving you with clean, smooth and fresh skin. I use it as a second cleanse product once a week or if my skin is being problematic twice a week.
‘Apricot and oat oil molecules bind the dirt and impurities, while the natural volcanic sand helps to unclog pores, remove dead cells and polish the skin. Stimulates natural cell turnover.’ I think when people think of modern day exfoliators they think of abrasive coconut shell scrubs but the Mádara scrub is made with natural wax micro beads mixed with more natural ingredients to deliver gentle yet effective exfoliation. It’s also nut free, vegan, cruelty free and eco-certified plus it smells divine which is always a plus point in my eyes.
As a dry skin girl sometimes my skin just needs an extra bit of help when it comes to exfoliating and this is the perfect product, mixing it into my routine (which obviously also contains a chemical exfoliant) has really improved my skins texture and brightness.
