In Ireland, the snow has finally arrived… three months later. That’s Irish weather for you. I’ve found that when the weather changes suddenly without warning, my skin suffers greatly. I saw this facial scrub in Tesco because I’ve been struggling with some blemishes, and my skin has been looking rather dull and almost grey?? I’ve been giving this sort of a 7-day trial.
Clean & Clear ‘Morning Energy’ Skin Brightening Daily Facial Scrub
This facial scrub claims to ‘gently exfoliate for visibly bright and radiant skin’. It has lemon and papaya extracts so it does have lemon and citrus fruits scent to it.

Price: This retails for €2.55 but I got it in Tesco for €2.57.
How to use: Apply to wet face and gently massage all over face avoiding eye area. Rinse thoroughly. Also suitable for use in the evening
Quantity: 150 ml.
How I applied this: I used this skin exfoliating brush I purchased from Penneys. I have to say I’ve been loving this for applying this. I used this facial scrub every morning. I wet my face first then applied it using the brush in circular motions, avoiding my eyes.
Results: Did this make my skin more radiant? Yes. I actually will re-purchase this as soon as it runs out. I feel like you have to wait a week after using the scrub to see any results. However, it did not fix my blemish problem but it did improve my skin. One thing I did not like about it was how dry it made my skin. However this is expected because it does state that it is oil-free. I recommend applying your favourite face cream after using this.
Rating: 4/5. Especially with the price, I think it’s worth buying this and trying it out.
