What Are Your Favourite Face Scrubs?

Nothing makes my skin feel softer and smoother than a good old scrub! I've created a few posts on 'favourites' recently and just had to include Face Scrubs, after all, they play a very important part in any skin care routine.
I tend to use a scrub prior to a mask - after all, why waste the benefits of a good mask on dead skin when you can cut straight to the healthy stuff?! So, here are the responses I've gathered from some lovely ladies on facebook regarding some of their favourite scrub products ......
Tracey (aged 34) uses the Sanctuary Radiance Exfoliator  (£10.50 for 100ml) on her oily skin. She feels the pros are that the product is "not too harsh but does the job quickly and easily. It's also not too expensive. I go through these quickly and so wouldn't buy expensive brands."   

Nicola (aged 28) with normal/combination skin prone to occasional breakouts uses Soap & Glory Scrub Your Nose In It (£7.50 for 125ml). She loves "the tingly sensation and the fact that it is not too harsh." The product is also "dual purpose too as it can be used as a mask!" Nicola uses a scrub 1-2 times a week.
I've tried this one and can vouch for Nicola's comments - a great purse friendly multitasker!

Fi (aged 30) is another fan of this product. She comments on the "amazing fresh feeling once I've used it and it lasts throughout the day too". She's "noticed a real difference in (her combination) skin after a few weeks of using this."
Zara (aged 24) has combination skin. She uses a facial brush combined with Tesco Vitamin E Face Wash which she finds "the most effective way (as it) isn't harsh on my skin". (You can read Zara's blog here)
Sarah (aged 29) Has recently started using the St Ives Apricot Blemish Control Scrub (£3.99 for 150ml). She loves the product as "the grains are big enough to (provide) a deep clean but it's not harsh on your skin" after use she notes "it leaves my skin so smooth and it definitely gets everything out of the pores on my nose!"
Denise (aged 31) Loves the YSL Top Secrets Exfoliator (mentioned in previous post here) and the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant (priced around £30 upwards for 75ml). The microfoliant "works well with my skin as it doesn't scratch it or leave it feeling tight and uncomfortable."
Lynne (aged 41) has combination skin which she finds a "curse and a blessing!" Her favourite scrub is again, the Dermalogica Microfoliant. Lynne finds that "no matter what I put on my skin afterwards, (it) always looks better!"
Gemma (aged) says her favourite is also the Dermalogica, it's "non harsh and feels like my skin has had a deep clean".
Laura (aged 27) has oily skin. She's also become a recent fan of the Dermalogica Microfoliant but tends not to use it every day. A scrub she's used for a long time is the Aapri Original Scrub Cream (£3.99 for 150ml). Laura finds that "it's really grainy so gets all the dead skin off with ease (without) feeling harsh on my skin." Cost is also a factor as she finds it does the same job as other high street versions with a heftier price tag.
Emily (aged 23) has combination skin. She uses Garnier Anti-Blackhead Deep Pore Wash (priced around £4 upwards) twice a week. Her reason is "it's not too rough on my skin (not like sandpaper!) and the smell is lovely! Cleans right down in the pores!"
Helen (aged 34) also has combination skin. Her favourite face scrub is Clarins Gentle Refiner Exfoliating Cream (£24.50 for 50ml). Helen says this product is "not harsh but does a fab job at getting rid of dull skin and cleans out pores."

I've got a full size and sample size of this product and am sure I'll love it after Helen's glowing review.
So, there you have it. A vast array of products, all of varying prices and consistencies and all rated highly by the users.
Hopefully for those of you looking to try a new product, there's one listed for you.
I hope you've enjoyed reading this post as much as I have writing it!
