Warning: This may make you feel light-headed, dull-skinned, and like a complete skin care failure.
I almost fell off the stool at the make-up counter when I heard this little nugget.
Did you know that the Clarisonic brush cleaner doesn't exfoliate?
Yeah, that makes two of us.
It only deep cleans. So, all of those times that I scrubbed and scrubbed and scrubbed trying to exfoliate and get rid of my fine lines and wrinkles, and dull, dead, skin cells was a complete waste of time.
Don't get me wrong, I love my Clarisonic and think it does a marvelous job getting deep down into my pores and getting the gunk out. But, I thought it was doing double duty.
I did some research and found this gentle exfoliating scrub by The Body Shop that can be used daily. It's aloe vera based, and we all know that I'm obsessed with aloe (read more about that here). Though, I think I used it a little too much because my face became a bit irritated with my daily, violent scrubbing. I just couldn't help myself. I have many exfoliation free years to make up for.
These are some other exfoliating scrubs that I would love to try.
Do you have any exfoliators that you can't live without or were you also living in my "Clarisonic does my exfoliating fantasy land"?
p.s. Why do I drink Baby Mama Juice? Because when a friend tells me that she is reading my blog and gives me examples of the things she thought were interesting or funny, it totally makes my day and motivates me to keep writing. We are all busy and have tons of things going on in our lives, but the fact that some of my friends take the time and effort to read Baby Mama Juice means so much to me. So, if you're reading, thanks Carrie and all of my other reader friends!!!
