Happy Thursday, chicas!
Lately, I’ve been thinking about scrubs.
Could it be the TLC I’ve been bumping 24/7 (“A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly and is also known as a bustahhh!”)?
Perhaps last Monday’s episode of The City is still lingering on my mind.
Whitney dumps her scrubby boyfriend; the women of the world issue a collective WOOT!
Or maybe it’s my new addiction to Clean & Clear’s Soft Purifying Cleanser Scrub ($7).
A few weeks ago I was getting zilch for sleep and wasn’t drinking enough water, which is usually a recipe for HOT MESS. My forehead broke out, my cheeks felt parched and my skin was looking pretty blotchy.
I picked up a bottle of Clean & Clear Soft Scrub. The product marketing says this oil-free scrub’s combination of gentle exfoliating beads, salicylic acid and white tea anti-oxidants work together to cleanse skin gently without stripping.
So far this blue bottle has delivered the goods. I’ve been using it in the mornings, and my skin’s looking more even and feeling less dry. The pimple situation’s improved, too.
Most exfoliating scrubs leave my face uncomfortably tight after rinsing, but not Soft Scrub, which leaves it quenched and hydrated.
And while other scrubs feel rough and raw, Soft Scrub’s beads buff gently without scratching. I like using it the morning, because the gentle friction and marine-ish scent wake me up instantly.

Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating: A
The Clean & Clear website says Soft Scrub is supposed to be for teenage skin, but I think budget-loving beauties of all ages would like it, too.
