When in Orlando back in March, I noticed the release of the L’Oreal Smooth Sugars Face & Lip Scrubs, and after the successful launch of the L’Oreal Clay Masks last year, I knew I just had to try these! There are currently three in the range; Clear Scrub, Glow Scrub and Nourish Scrub, so whatever your skin is in need of, I am pretty sure L’Oreal has got you covered!
To create the Smooth Sugars Clear Scrub, L’Oreal have selected three fine sugars and combined them with kiwi seeds to give the skin instantly pure, fresh and baby-soft skin. The three sugars, brown, blonde and white give a deep yet gentle exfoliating and cleansing experience, with the white sugar melting on the skin whilst gently buffing away impurities and dead skin cells, blonde sugar to naturally moisturise, and brown sugar to help strengthen the skin’s barrier. Clear Scrub has a light gel texture which smells incredible, and is absolutely my favourite scent in this trio. Key ingredients include Kiwi Seeds to smooth the skin, unclog pores and visibly reduce blackheads, Peppermint Essential Oil which is rich in soothing properties to visibly reduce blemishes and Lemongrass Essential Oil to purify the skin.
The Smooth Sugars Glow Scrub is possibly my least favourite scent, but the results are well worth it. Those three fine sugars have this time been combined with Grapeseed Oil to instantly reveal luminously radiant, polished, super soft skin. Glow Scrub is caring and delicately scented, yet its smoothing texture gives you an amazing facial cleansing experience. Ingredient-wise, the Glow Scrub has been formulated using Grapeseed Oil which is full of Vitamin E to illuminate and brighten the skin, Monoi Oil which is a natural moisturiser known to protect skin from dullness and fatigue, and Acai Powder which gently polishes the skins’ surface. As with all three scrubs, this one is suitable for all skin types, even sensitive skin, and as someone with sensitive skin, I certainly didn’t discover any irritability or discomfort, just fabulously glowy skin.
If your skin is in desperate need of some TLC, then the Smooth Sugars Nourish Scrub is the one for you! This face and lip scrub looks a little like chocolate and those three sugars have this time been combined with Cocoa Butter to give supple, well nourished and soft skin. The Nourish Scrub has a buttery texture and features Cocoa Butter which is rich in essential fatty acid to moisturise and soothe away any dryness, Coconut Oil which is packed with lipids known to protect the skin’s barrier and Cocoa Grains to remove any dead skin cells and soften the skin. With any of the scrubs, I would recommend using 2-3 times a week as part of your skincare routine. Simply apply the scrub to clean, dry skin, add a small amount of warm water and gently massage over the face in circular motions, avoiding the eye area but paying close attention to the chin, nose, and forehead. Once the sugars have melted, rinse with warm water to reveal deliciously looking and feeling skin!
The L’Oreal Smooth Sugars Face & Lip Scrubs cost £9.99 each and are available instore and online at retailers such as Boots.
