So, i'm back and ready to get blogging again. How have you all been? I've left a little note on my Facebook page (click here) with a brief explanation as to why I've been gone for almost all of September.
Anyway, exciting times ahead, My monthly favourites being one of them! In collaboration with a good friend of mine, I bring you the snaps of my monthly favourites. I'll give you more details below of Framing Beads, for now - I give you my favourite product of September!
The Biore Baking Soda Scrub (£7.99)
Another day I find myself in Boots - another day I find new products that 'just-so-happen' to fall into my shopping basket and escort me to the till! I was on the hunt for products to help my skin when it was breaking out. I have a few product faves that I try to use each evening to help prevent breakouts whilst my skin is clear. I wanted something that would help me in my times of need!
So quite literally as the name of this product suggests, it's a powdery substance which when mixed with water becomes an effective but gentle exfoliate (depending on how much water you use in ratio with the powder). Being able to adjust the intensity of the product makes it beneficial for you to use several times a week without you worrying about over-exfoliating your skin. The packaging for this product is very practical. Consider the fact that the powder (when in contact with water) will dissolve and expand into a foam like substance. Keeping the product dry when not in use is key but also super simple due to the lid design on the bottle.
I enjoy mixing the powder with a minimal amount of water at first and then massage it onto my face. Whilst its at its thickest consistency I focus the product around my T-Zone, around my nose and then finally my chin. I dampen my hands further then continue to massage the product on the rest of my face whilst the product becomes less intense with the new amount of water i'd have added to my skin.
It leaves my skin feeling refreshed, exfoliated and very very clean. I would suggest using this after a facial wash if you were wearing makeup. If your skin is clean and free from makeup products - feel free to go straight in with the Biore Baking Soda Scrub.
