Face scrubs for Summer

5 August 2016

Dermatologist suggest we use different products during different seasons, because your face has different needs. So I've bought products here and there over this "summer" and these are my favourite thus far which, also happen to be perfect for maximising that summer glow!




Ingredients: water\aqua\eau; citrus aurantium amara (bitter orange) flower water; butylene glycol; lecithin; behenyl betaine; glycerin; polysorbate 60; propylene glycol stearate; polysorbate 20; sorbitan laurate; polysorbate 80; sodium chloride; carica papaya (papaya) fruit extract; eucalyptus globulus leaf oil*, abies sibirica oil*, prunus amygdalus amara (bitter almond) kernel oil*, mentha arvensis leaf oil*, rosa damascena extract, barosma betulina leaf extract, citrus paradisi (grapefruit) peel extract, limonene; prunus armeniaca (apricot) seed powder; juglans regia (walnut) shell powder; copernicia cerifera (carnauba) wax\cera carnauba\cire de carnauba; mangifera indica (mango) seed; mangifera indica (mango) fruit extract; propylene glycol laurate; phosphoric acid; peg-30 dipolyhydroxystearate; ppg-5-ceteth-10 phosphate; ethylhexylglycerin; caprylyl glycol; disodium edta; hexylene glycol; potassium sorbate; sodium dehydroacetate; phenoxyethanol

Origins is about 90% natural, so although there are a few ingredients in the that don't look like they belong there, they are naturally and ethically sourced.

What Orgins say:

Smooth away blah, bleak looking skin. Exfoliator with finely ground Apricot and Mango Seeds plus potent Papaya Extract dissolves lackluster cells with no irritating friction. Polishes skin to perfection. Leaves it beaming with youthful radiance.

What Chloé say's:

I love this product for my skin as so many people told me in the days that I used it that my skin looked good. The scrub smells good and is thick, meaning you don't have to cake the face with loads to apply evenly. I wish I had invested in the Gin Zing instead slightly, just as with added caffeine that is sure to give that wide awake slowly feel to ones skin, but I do love this, and it does do the job!




Kaolin, Talc, Fresh Organic Lime Juice, sage, rosemary and juniperberry infusion, fresh organic free range eggs, honey, glycerine, fresh fennel, ground almond shells, almond oil, bentonite gel, fresh ginger root, fresh organic parsley, fresh organic coriander, ground numeric, ground cardamom, clove bud oil, ginger oil, vetivert oil, juniperberry oil, benzyl salicylate, eugenol, geraniol, benzyl benzoate, linalool, and perfume.

What Lush say:

Wake up your skin with this fresh face mask containing fresh fennel, ginger root, parsley and coriander to detox and stimulate. We use a sage, rosemary and juniperberry infusion with cardamom and clove bud oils for their antiseptic qualities, fresh lime juice to cleanse the skin and free range eggs, honey and almond oil to soothe and moisturise. Smooth a generous layer of this mask onto your face and leave for 10 to 15 minutes.

What Chloé say's:

I love Lush products, they're just that bit more "naturified" (not a real word I know). The ingredients list is literally words you can understand! This mask smelt divineeee! All soft like vanilla honey sort of smells, and it was thick too like the Origins mask but you could feel those almond shells! The only thing I hate about this mask is because it is so darn fresh, it has to stay in the fridge. Which means it has a reduced shelf life. Can't always feel pressured into scrubbing my face!

Have you used these products? Let me know!


  1. I think I've tried the Brazend Honey mask. I'm not sure lol, the only thing is I keep forgetting about them due to them having to be in the fridge. Although I do love their don't look at me mask cos my face always needs help lightening some pigmentation ugh! xo

  2. It was looking to buy scrubs for work and glad that I bought this one. I'm not sure if the fabric is good or what not because I hardly ever mind, but I would say that if you're as flexible as me you'd think fabric of surgical scrubs was great.
