Review // Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub

Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub  - £3.99
I have been meaning to write this post for so long. I'm really struggling with motivation to blog at the moment. I can manage to get words into sentences but not necessarily in the correct order.

I bought this face scrub so long ago I can't remember when. At the time my skin was in terrible condition, I had awfully dry skin and spots galore. I took a trip to Boots to try and find a solution and whilst I am yet to find a remedy for spots, this product is quite good for my dry skin issue. I bought the Botanics All Bright Purifying Face Scrub for a couple of pounds when it was on offer, which it often is. I really love the Botanics range in Boots so it's always worth having a little look when you are in there as they do sell some gems!

What Botanics say about their Purifying Face Scrub:

"This cleansing scrub contains refining walnut shell to buff away flaky skin while crushed apricot seeds gently sweep away impurities. Enriched with brightening hibiscus, it is suitable for all skin types."

How to use:

"Apply to skin after cleansing, gently massage with your fingertips using light circular movements."

The face scrub comes in a standard plastic squeezy tube where the product is easy to come out of. The first noticeable point to this face scrub is the smell - it smells great! I couldn't point out what it smelt like but after reading about the crushed apricot seeds I definitely think that there is a lovely, subtle hint of apricot in there somewhere. It's a very fresh, light scent and is pretty much inoffensive. 

After squeezing a 50p piece sized amount into my hand, I applied the face scrub by following the directions and the face scrub foamed up nicely and felt rough on the skin. When I use face scrubs I really want the scrubby bits to be really rough in order to do the job nicely and although the walnut particles in this scrub are rough, they could be a little harsher.
Regardless of this, my skin was left feeling a lot smoother and softer than before and any dry skin had gone, which is what I had hoped for. My skin is also left looking a bit brighter and perkier which is just what you need when you're feeling and looking a little bit grey! 

Overall, a really pleasant and inexpensive face scrub. It does the job well and removes any dry skin whilst leaving the skin feeling softer and looking a bit brighter. It doesn't make the skin feel tight at all which is what I have found with a few other face scrubs and the scrub itself smells lovely. If you are after a cheap face scrub then this is great!
