Aveeno Smart Essentials Daily Detoxifying Scrub Review
“Great, healthy looking skin happens when you reveal your brillant side. Diet, free-radicals environmental toxins and a hectic lifestyle can result in noticeably dull, uneven skin. Formulated with antioxidant Southernwood extract, SMART ESSENTIALS™ Daily Detoxifying Scrub helps keep what’s good in and what’s bad out. It gently polishes away debris, revealing a brighter, smoother look.”
I’m always willing to try a new exfoliator, so when I saw this in the new Aveeno Smart Essentials collection I snatched it up. I’m usually hesitant to try new skin care products because I have sensitive skin but luckily I didn’t experience any irritation or breakouts. This product is soap-free, oil-free, hypoallergenic, and noncomedogenic (it won’t clog pores). It’s a detoxifying scrub that’s made with Southernwood, which supports vitality and moisture balance. This is the most moisturizing scrub I’ve ever used. After I use it my skin feels clean, moisturized, and I don’t have that nasty tightening feeling.
Since this is a gentle scrub that’s made to use daily the microbeads are smaller (basically non-existent) than what I’m used to. I personally like to use scrubs a tad more abrasive, so this is a turn off to me. I also don’t care for the smell, a light wood-like musk, it’s not over powering but it’s enough to make me frown up when I use it. It’s more of a moisturizing cleanser than a scrub and it’s not good enough to replace the cleansers I currently use so I won’t be purchasing it again.
Price: $5-$9 (depends on where you purchase)
