The Body Shop Vitamin C Microdermabrasion

Today, I wanted to share with you a beauty that I recently fell in love with. Already a fan of The Body Shop, I wanted to try some of their Vitamin C range. My first horrah into the range is the Microdermabrasion scrub.

I haven't used a microdermabrasion in years with my last one being the ROC kit. I loved the ROC one so I was eager to see how I would get on with The Body Shops offering.

This lovely is a weekly home spa exfoliation treatment that promises to improve skin tone by removing dead skin cells and dirt. The Body Shop recommend a maximum use of twice a week but I only use it once a week.

As you can see from the above pics, this scrub features ultra fine particles ideal for exfoliating. Also features is a heavenly citrus scent, Vitamin C rich camu camu and Shea butter.

I really like the scrub, you only need a tiny amount of product for your face and after using, my skin definitely feels smoother and I'm left with a lovely glow. My skin isn't overly sensitive but as The Body Shop says, it's not one for those with sensitive skin.

Have you tried The Vitamin C range?

Bia Beauty Orange and Grapefruit Facial Exfoliant and Cleanser

About a month ago, I was lucky to be sent a couple of products from Bia Beauty . I was super excited when they arrived because I've wanted to try these handmade products for ages. First up, I wanted to share the Orange and Grapefruit Facial Exfoliant and Cleanser
This gentle and invigorating cleanser features a heavely orange and grapefruit scent. I seriously can't stop smelling the jar everytime I pass it. It smells like freshly squeezed orange and grapefruit juice.  Yum!!  There are also tiny jojoba grains that remove dead skin cells and brighten the complexion without it being harsh.
When applying this, I take a small amount out with the tips of my fingers and gently massage my face and neck using small circular movements then rinse with water.

I've used it 2-3 times a week and definitely notice my skin feels cleaner and is left with a lovely glow. This is definitely going to be a future purchase for me and at €16.95 it is very reasonably priced for a handmade skincare product.

You can purchase this lovely on Bia Beauty aswell as one of their stockists
Next time, I'll be sharing my thoughts on Bia Beautys award winning Detox Body Scrub
