STEP 1. PREPARE

This is another product that is aimed at men but hey, why not try it? I don't think of this as a men's scrub, just as an exfoliating product. This is a creamy product containing ground walnut shells, and no microbeads, to buff away the dead skin and to remove the impurities. It also contains almond oil and cocoa butter for hydration.

This did clean away the grease and dead skin leaving it prepped, ready for the serum and moisturiser.  It cleaned it a little too well though, leaving it feeling a bit tight. I was surprised at how well this controlled the oils throughout the day. I did get the odd shine here and there but not as much as I usually do. Unfortunately, it did break out with painful spots on my chin and forehead the next day.

I'm not too fond of the scent and it did linger after I've applied the rest of my skincare products. It has the typical men's aftershave scent. It is a great product but is too harsh for me in the end. It's definitely one for the men as their skin is different to women.

Have you tried any men's facial scrubs?

  1. That doesn't sound so fine, the fact that it made you spotty! I think I'll give it a miss for my husband then.

  4. These kind of scrubs are actually bad for you, anything with microbeads in avoid like the plague!

  5. That doesn't sound good. I'm not keen on the smells in the men's toiletries either.

  7. I've never been tempted to pinch my husband's products as I think they smell too masculine - give me roses every time.

  18. I like the idea, but I don't think my hubby would be happy with something that caused spots.

  19. I prefer mens face scrubs as they tend to have a nicer smell. The body shop does a lovely smelling one that I 'borrow' of Mr Dad

  20. I haven't tried any male scrubs and after reading this I don't think I will. Female scrubs only for me!
