Facial scrub recommendations?

Paper Plane

I’ve been using a Hawkins & Brimble elemi & ginseng scrub for a while and really like the effects it produces.

Any recommendations for other similar products worth trying?

Thanks

Slightly tangential, as face scrubs are typically too harsh for my skin, but I use CeraVe’s SA Smoothing Cleanser once or twice a week. It’s a gentle chemical (as opposed to mechanical) exfoliator. The rest of the week I wash my face with water morning and night and figure that running a sharp metal blade across half my face a few times a week is exfoliating enough!

I seldom use one but when I do...it has usually been Creightons. The only time I use one is if I have cut myself. The next day I gently 'sand down' the surface so that I can reshave without drawing blood.

Another thing to think about with a scrub is what them scrubby bits are made of. If it’s plastic beads, forget it. It’s not something I use a lot of but from time to time I will. Generally when it’s coming from a grooming box. Face Wash I use one daily, at the moment it a L’Oréal one. Monday though i made the mistake of getting it in an eye. I know, I know it warns you, but for something that’s used close to your eyes it stung like hell !

There’s no need for the use of such an abrasive product as a scrub. In fact a dermatologist told an ex that a scrub should never be used. Just wet your face in the shower for a few minutes and rub your face with a flannel. It works perfectly well.
Nearly out of face wash and with no scrub left I have taken notice of this and went for Kiehl’s Face Fuel.
