Beautisol Exscrub Me? Citrus Face Exfoliant Review



When I have a product to tell you about that is like Beautisol Exscrub Me? Face Exfoliant, it makes me wish that we had smell-o-vision for the computer because let me tell you, to smell the aroma is the first step in appreciation of this facial scrub. It smells DELICIOUS!!! I am partial to citrus scents and this has all the good ones in it....grapefruit, tangerine oil, orange peel oil, lemon peel oil and more in this cruelty-free, certified organic facial exfoliator. Let me first show you the ingredient list:

Aqua (Water), Polyethylene (Beads), Glycerin, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Jojoba Esters (Beads), Behenyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid, Cetyl Alcohol, Dicaprylyl Ether, Glyceryl Stearate, Sucrose Stearate, Xanthan Gum, Titanium Dioxide, Sodium Stearoyl Glutamate, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Squalane, Citrus Tangerina (Tangerine) Peel Oil, Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Citric Acid, Citrus Medica Limonum (Lemon) Peel Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil*, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Water, Potassium Sorbate, Carbomer, Citrus Grandis (Grapefruit) Peel Oil, Tocotrienols, Elaeis Guineensis (Palm) Oil, Phytic Acid, Sodium Hydroxide, Alcohol, Tocopherol (D-alpha), Passiflora Incarnata (Passionflower) Flower Extract *Certified Organic

This scrub was formulated to give you very smooth skin in preparation for a flawless sunless tan, but you can use it whether you use Beautisol sunless tanner, another brand, or just for a manual exfoliation. Again, the smell is just delicious!!! It's aroma therapy in a scrub!!!!

Squeeze a small amount out of the tube and you can see the little jojoba beads, (the pink), that will do the manual exfoliation while the citric acids do the rest of the work. Dampen the skin, apply the small amount of exfoliator, (smaller than the amount on my arm), rub gently in circles and rinse very well.


It's pretty...reminding me of birthday cake frosting somewhat. Exscrub Me? is formulated for all skin types and PETA certified. You can purchase this product on Beautisol.com and it retails for $17 for a 2 ounce squeeze tube.  There is a discount code that is valid thru 6/30/14 that is a BUY ONE GET ONE FREE!!!  Use the code:  BOGO2014.

My personal experience:  I have to include this in order to tell you a bit more about the product.  The first time I used it, I assumed it was like most other scrubs and I rubbed it around and then used my Sonic Spa to electronically exfoliate and remove the scrub and followed up with retinol before bed.  I do this with every other scrub because they don't seem to work unless I really scrub hard and help the product out.

Not so with the Beautisol Exscrub Me?!  I don't recommend using 2 or 3 methods of exfoliation at the same time.  In fact, you need to be gentle with Exscrub Me? and don't use a chemical exfoliator like retinol the same day.  All you need is Exscrub Me?.  I was thrilled to find this scrub actually worked all on it's own and didn't take a gallon of elbow grease!!

Be sure to follow Beautisol on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, and YouTube.  Have you seen founder Sinead Norenius on HSN displaying her products?  Have you tried Beautisol?  What are your favorite exfoliation methods?

Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster Review


Today we're going to talk about Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Booster, ($56/1fl oz), which I was invited to sample by IFabbo. IFabbo is a blogging group that I am fortunate to belong to. The first thing I want you to know is that I have no pictures of my own. Sad face. :( Don't you just hate reviews without pictures? Yeah, I do too. I was recently out of state and this somehow got left behind, but I was able to try it before it walked away to someone who seemed to need it more. (That's the story I'm telling myself because it makes me feel better).

skin care, serum, review, Ifabbo

I used this as a serum, putting it on after cleansing and before moisturizing. It has Hyaluronic Acid, Panthenol, Glycolipids and Algae Extract that work to help restore moisture balance, helping to relieve dryness, making those nasty fine lines plump up and look better. I found that this did help my dryness when I used it in conjunction with my regular regimen, and you should know that I have really dry skin. Also, it has a light lavender scent, which I really love, but a lot of people may not. The scent doesn't linger, so you can't use it for your scent of the day. ;) Use this as you would any other serum, applying it to skin and throat areas.

There are a lot of reviews for the Dermatologica Skin Hydrating Booster online and I'm sure you can find one that matches your skin type.  You can purchase this on the Dermalogica website as well as places like Amazon.
