Exfoliating Routine ♥ Soap and Glory & Liz Earle Muslin Cloth

Hello :)

Exfoliating is a key part of my skin care regime, to me it is equally as important as removing your make up! Exfoliating removes all of the nasty dead skin cells that can make your skin look dull. By removing the dead skin cells you are allowing fresh skin cells to flaunt themselves and helping your skin glow and radiate health.

The two products that i use for exfoliating are a Muslin Cloth (daily routine) and Soap and Glory's Greatest Scrub Of All exfoliator (2-3 times a week).

My Current Exfoliation Routine
Liz Earle Muslin Cloth
Every morning and night i cleanse my face (obv). At the moment i am currently using a cleansing lotion by Eucerin (review coming soon). My current cleansing routine involves applying the cleanser all over my face to remove any make up, then using a Liz Earle Muslin cloth, i simply wipe away the cleanser and make up. Muslin cloths hold a micro-exfoliating property, which means that everyday i am giving my face a gentle exfoliation.

By using a Muslin cloth to remove cleanser from my skin, i've found that my skin has appeared a lot more healthier and has had more of a glow to it. Using a Muslin cloth as part of your daily cleansing routine means that you are encorparating cleansing and exfoliating in one swift step!

Soap and Glory Greatest Scrub Of All
Seeing as the Muslin cloth only gives my face quite a gentle exfoliation, i also use the Soap and Glory Greatest Scrub Of All exfoliator 2 - 3 times a week, to make sure all the nasty dead skin cells are scrubbed away.

The Soap and Glory Greatest Scrub Of All exfoliator is one of my all time favourite skin care items.

In the past i have used an array of exfoliators, but most were too harsh on my skin. The S&G exfoliator is a minty smelling cream packed with little micro-beads. The first thing i noticed when i first used this was how creamy and silky it felt, which was quite a nice surprise for an exfoliator! You do get quite a tingling sensation when you apply this, so for that reason i don't put it anywhere near my eyes or lips! The tingling sensation isn't offensive or irritating to me at all, just a bit of a surprise when you first try it. When i've massaged the product around my face and neck area i simply wash it off.

The exfoliator leaves my skin looking healthier and brighter. You are also left with quite a refreshing feeling after using this scrub, i put this down to the minty scent! ;)

Which is your favourite exfoliator at the moment, anything i'm missing out on?
