I love mint. Especially in the Winter, not that New York is actually have much of a Winter this year. Feels more like Spring outside.
But yeah, love me some mint in the Winter.
Dunno if the Holiday Season is to blame or I just like the cool, crisp smell of it in my shower and my beauty life “just because”, either way I loves it.
So I decided to pick up some Bath & Body Works True Blue Peppermint Really Refreshing Face Scrub to celebrate.
You can get these little mini tubes for around $3 bucks each at the moment during the Semi Annual Sale. Or if you really dig it you can haul a bigger one. I picked up the mini tubes to stuff my sister’s stocking with and ended up keeping some for myself and I must admit it’s a rather nice little face scrub.
I’m always wary of trying unknown face scrubs out as they typically dry my skin out and yes, sadly True Blue Really Refreshing Face Scrub is guilty of doing as such. Beware if you have dry skin and keep to using this once a week at best as if you over use it, it will potentially make your dry skin even tighter after use.
It smells like little vanill-ish but minty fresh, sweet peppermint definitely dominates here. Think of a stick of gum! It’s a thicker gel-like texture with fine grains in the mix for exfoliating. It does a nice job of whisking away dry, patchy, flaky areas on your face. It worked particularly well on my patchy cheeks and forehead.
My only issue with it would be the dry, tight feeling after use so I definitely need to be sure to follow up quickly with a solid moisturizer to keep my skin fully hydrated.
If you have oily skin you can probably enjoy daily use.
Not the most friendliest of facial exfoliators in the world due to the added dryness but nice if I don’t overdo it!
Available now at Bath and Body Works.
