AD – Products mentioned in this post were gifted for my honest review
Happy Monday everyone! My skin is really not at its best at the moment, the change in the weather combined with lack of sleep and stress recently has really had an effect (not forgetting to also thank central heating!). I received the L’Abu Pore Refining Face Scrub and hoped it would help to relieve some of the dry skin that has set up residence in my t-zone!
L’ABU Skin was founded in Italy by Netta and Hayley who strongly believe that organic is best and that we need to use the right products to protect and care for our skin without having to pay a large price (my bank account appreciates this!). They are cruelty and vegan free too which is always a big plus with me!
The Pore Refining Face Scrub comes packaged in a lovely white tube. It promises to:
- Improve skin elasticity
- Close pores
- Clear the skin of spots and blackheads
- Leave the skin feeling soft and supple
Some lovely ingredients make up this yummy scrub including Vitamins B and C, Lychee Extract, Oat Milk and Japanese Cherry. I am a big fan of oat milk in skincare for its gentle cleansing and antioxidant properties. It is also free of parabens, sulphates and other nasties and irritants (my sensitive skin is relieved!) simply put its full of yummy goodness!
The scrub is a lovely creamy formula with a medium consistency which spreads easily on the skin. It feels so soothing once applied and does not have a strong scent. I do not have to work hard when massaging the scrub on my face (my arm muscles appreciate this after playing aeroplanes with my boys!) it does all the hard work for me!
I have been using the Pore Refining Facial Scrub for two weeks and have really been enjoying it. I always exfoliate two – three times a week depending on my skins needs to boost circulation and reinvigorate my skin. I have normal/combination skin and currently it is more on the dry side than oily.
Regular use of this lovely scrub has helped to keep my dry skin patches at bay, especially those around my nose and forehead. I use roughly the size of a penny each application and ensure my skin is wet before applying and massaging the scrub on my face. It is a lovely gentle scrub which feels soothing on my skin and does not irritate. It removes dead skin cells easily and leaves my skin feeling clean and refreshed, it is left glowing! (I do loooove a healthy glow!) I do not have large pores however I have seen an improvement in the appearance of my pores especially on my nose!
This scrub is so gentle on my skin and it is suitable for all skin types. I am really pleased with the results I am achieving and will continue to use it as part of my skincare routine.
L’ABU Pore Refining Face Scrub (rrp £15.00) is available directly from L’ABU Skin.
