Oh sugar, these new Smooth Sugars exfoliating scrubs from L’Oreal are amazing!
3 Fine sugars in caring scrubs to give you instant, baby-soft skin, oh la la!
I received these a couple weeks ago and have been having a sugar rush testing them out. These sweet treats for your skin help to protect the skin while you exfoliate.
Made with 100% natural ingredients containing either fine Brown, White or Blonde sugars these provide fantastic results without drying out the skin and leaving it feeling super soft.
Since I started with Fraxel a few years back, my once take-it-all skin has become quite sensitive. I’m so sensitive sometimes that even something with too many chemicals leaves an instant blotchiness, redness and itchiness, so I try to avoid anything that’s too aggressive on my skin.
That’s why I love these L’Oreal Smooth Sugars scrubs. They are good enough to eat! In fact, the Smooth Sugars Clear Scrub actually does taste pretty good – although I wouldn’t recommend eating your skincare, but you know, sometimes temptation is stronger than my will haha, especially when it smells so amazing.
It’s tough choosing a favourite… I love the smell and feel of the Smooth Sugars Clear Scrub, I love the feeling and result of the Smooth Sugars Glow Scrub and I love the sweet, chocolatey indulgence of the Smooth Sugars Nourish Scrub, but at R160 each, you can enjoy them all!
Oh by the way, I see Clicks has them for less 20% at the moment (not sure how long the offer will last), but you can pick them up for 127 each, so hurry, hurry and click here.
Now let’s talk a bit about each one… and like I said I can’t pick a favourite, so they are in no particular order.
L’Oreal Smooth Sugars Clear Scrub
Look at it though! It even looks good enough to eat! Haha
This one is targeted at clearing the skin by purifying it, reducing blackheads and unclogging pores.
- With Kiwi Seeds to smooth the skin and reduce blackheads,
- Peppermint Essential Oil to reduce blemishes and
- Lemongrass Essential Oil to purify the skin.
L’Oreal Smooth Sugars Nourish Scrub
This one is perfect as we head into those skin-drying winter months and it smells just like chocolate – and yes I tasted it and it doesn’t taste like chocolate, so don’t worry about gaining more calories during your shower hour.
- With Cocoa Butter to nourish and moisturise the skin,
- Coconut Oil to protect the skin’s barrier and
- Cocoa Grains to help remove dead skin cells and soften the skin.
L’Oreal Smooth Sugars Glow Scrub
Looking for that polished skin effect that radiates with luminosity? This is your baby, and I bet you these will sell like hotcakes since the results really are instantaneous. Note, I don’t have any blackheads and my skin isn’t dry at the moment so while my skin felt great after the other two Sugar Sessions, with this one, I could see the luminosity straight away.
- With Grapeseed Oil (packed with Vitamin E) it helps to illuminate and brighten the skin
- Manoi Oil which is a natural moisturiser known to protect the skin from dullness and fatigue, and
- Acai Powder to softly polish the skins’ surface.
All in all, brilliant, beautiful products that I’m pretty sure will remain permanent fixtures in my beauty routine.
I love that they are not aggressive on the skin and since I try to use as little chemicals as possible with my skincare routine these days, I love that these have natural, fuss free ingredients and did I mention you can use them as lip scrubs too!
Go check them out, then come back and let me know what you think and which one you love!
