Scrubatomic by Soap and Glory

Soap and Glory is fast becoming one of my favourite drugstore brands with most of their makeup and skincare range failing to disappoint. My most recent purchase from them is absolutely no exception and it comes in the form of Scrubatomic. Soap and Glory states that it is a daily face scrub that is suitable for all skin types, personally I only use it around three times a week due to it being quite abrasive because of its dual exfoliant properties. It almost lathers up when massaged into the skin, which is really lovely and I tend to leave it on the skin for a couple of minutes to allow the fruit acids to breakdown the dead skin. After I rinse it off, I am left with super soft skin that does not feel overly scrubbed!

This scrub has really impressed me for many reasons. It containes fruit acids to act as a gentle chemical exfoliant and also, very small exfoliating particles that buff away dead skin cells. Fruit acids, such as AHAs, have become massively popular in the skincare industry as an alternative to manual exfoliating beads, they have been proven to be much more effective at eating away the dead skin that clogs pores and dulls our complexion. Also, they are much less damaging to the skin due to the absence of abrasive ingredients. I have found it extremely difficult to find fruit acids present in skincare products in the drug store and at an extremely affordable price of £9, it is a serious bargain. Compared to similar products from Clarins and Zelens, Soap and Glory has really outdone itself on its Srubatomic.
