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.
No worries clear it away with Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash!
This finely milled exfoliator can be used on face or body and contains a formula with 2% salicylic acid to help unclog pores, reduce oiliness, and help prevent future breakouts.
Brands that produce grainy, harsh exfoliators can learn a thing or two from Proactiv as they perfected a really nicely textured product that whisks away dry spots and oily areas with a gentle yet effective exfoliating formula.
I can’t make proper use of this one at the moment since it tends to dry my skin out but when my skin is more oily in the Summer it’ll prove a nice way to exfoliate my drier patches while easing oily areas like my forehead.
Proactiv Deep Cleansing Wash is a nice little multitasking exfoliator that works on face and skin for a quick, deep clean that treats spots and keeps them from coming back.

I happen to be old enough to remember the Urban Legend that was spread across my school about Little Mikey, the kid from the Life Cereal commercials, who mixed a deadly combination of Pop Rocks and Coke and proceeded to explode and die.
Ahhh youth. Did we ever really believe this crap?
Lush has absolutely no issues with including Pop Rocks in their new Pow Wow Lip Scrub.
I’m switching my skincare cabinet around (yes, I haz cabinet for my skincare) so that all my exfoliaters play a prominent, Oscar Winning Role, front and center. Because it might feel like Summer in this city today (weather has been abnormally warm) but it gets cold in the evening and early morning which results in devastatingly dry skin.
I’ve been testing out the Balm Time Balm Kiwi Facial Scrub to see if it’ll make the cut as a keeper.
Let’s have a lookiee!
Scrub, scrub, scrub…
My skin needs a good scrub to ease the dullness, rid myself of dryness and flakes, plus I don’t want to worry about the scrub I use drying my skin out further because girl, you know these exfoliators are the work of the devil. I used to be a hardcore Philosophy Microdelivery fan but I swear it was making things worst instead of better.
Moral of the story, exfoliators are great but sometimes they make dry skin even drier.
I’ve been playing around with a few scrubs lately and at the moment Clarins One Step Gentle Exfoliating Cleanser is on my radar so let’s talk about it together?
