I am super excited to share this love scrub with you all because it is a product worth loving! This natural gem came in CAUSEBOX's Fall 2020 subscription, and I could see it being a new favourite for many.
For all you skin care junkies and exfoliating addicts, this 3-in-1 Hyaluronic Acid (yes, it’s true) scrub contains unique ingredients such as red tea and seaweed, which is what makes it special. These ingredients help fight anti-ageing such as fine lines and wrinkles, keep the skin hydrated, provide antioxidants and reduce inflammation. ALL IN ONE SCRUB.
I’ll start by sharing that Volim products come from South Florida and are 100% paraben and cruelty-free, and appropriate for sensitive skin *excitement*. They are a newer line which you can learn more about here. But getting down to it, one of my favourite things about this product is that the scrubbers are many teeny tiny spherical aluminum oxide crystals that work together to sand down what feels like every millimeter of my skin – truly magic! I never enjoyed scrubs that were too creamy or did not have enough “scrubbers” to get to work and remove the outer layer of skin. Because that’s the whole point of a scrub, no? Those gentler products act more like face wash and personally, I like to feel what I like to call “good grit” in a scrub! In other words, my skin appreciates deep exfoliation more than a light or gentle one. To me, I know and can feel that it’s doing the work.
With Love Scrub, you need a little bit of product (I use a dime size for myself) and once mixed with water, the scrubbers all separate and lather to a nice sandy mixture. You can then work the product around your face. If you currently use the Neutrogena Pore Refining Face Scrub I wrote about here or something similar to it, you’ll find this scrub is more of a heavy-duty product great for those who don’t mind grittiness and an awfully smooth finish post-usage for makeup applications. You could essentially incorporate both in your routine with that as a daily face wash, and this scrub 2-3 times a week depending on your skin type. Love Scrub is also an excellent product for dry limbs, including any other area of the body that needs some love and softening. You can buy Volim’s Love Scrub here for $56. The price is on the higher end, however, they do have a monthly subscription service that saves you 15% if you learn to love this product! They also have free shipping across US and Canada.
Looking for some other recommendations to broaden your scrub choices and match your needs? St. Ives has always been a go-to brand I could run to even when travelling or working outside of Canada. I was able to find it in most drug stores, and they have a wide range of scrub products ranging from gentle to deep exfoliation. There is a strong chance you’ll find something right for you in their extensive line – my favourites are the Acne Control Apricot Scrub and Radiant Pink Lemon & Mandarin Orange Scrub (these are great for the body because of “good grit”)!
Hope you enjoyed this post! What are some great scrubs you have used before?
