The Smooth Sugars Glow Scrub from L’Oreal Paris comes in a transparent 50 ml glass jar through which the caramel-colored product appears. It is also topped with a golden lid that gives it an overall refined look.
This scrub has a sweet, pleasant smell. However, you may not be able to tolerate it on your face if you are bothered by fragrances.
This product has a gel texture that contains fine sugar crystals responsible for skin exfoliation.
According to L’Oreal Paris, this scrub is suitable for all skin types.
Apply a small amount of scrub on dry, clean skin. Then, add warm water and massage over your face in a circular motion while avoiding the eye area. Once you feel that the sugar crystals have melted, rinse your face with water. Repeat this process three times a week. You may also use it as a lip scrub by rubbing a small amount onto your lips and then rinsing it off.
The Smooth Sugars Glow Scrub combines 3 kinds of fine sugars renowned for their exfoliating properties, in addition to grapeseed oil packed with Vitamin E to illuminate the skin, Monoi oil to moisturize it, and Acai powder to polish its surface. The effect of these ingredients stood out from the first try on normal skin. When the sugar crystals melted after applying the scrub, the skin turned remarkably clean and luminous, having shed all the accumulated dead skin. All the while without causing any irritation or redness. The skin also seemed to be more hydrated after rinsing off the scrub, as opposed to other scrubs that leave the skin dry. Nevertheless, we recommend applying some moisturizer after exfoliation for an ideal routine. Note that the skin did not exhibit any oily texture or appearance upon using the scrub, despite it containing two main components of natural oils. We adhered to using the scrub 3 times a week, which rendered the skin immensely smoother with a change in texture and a brighter complexion. In terms of lip application, this scrub effectively gets rid of accumulated dead skin, leaving the lips plump and moisturized. As a result, you will notice that lipstick wear has improved remarkably, especially when applying matte lipstick.
This L’Oreal Paris scrub retails at 10.6 USD per 50 ml, which is considered to be quite affordable, seeing that you’ll be using a small amount of product three times a week. Keep in mind that there are less expensive scrubs with a higher product capacity: such as Yves Rocher’s Botanical Scrub at 15 USD per 150 ml to be applied once or twice a week, and Neutrogena’s Visibly Clear Pick Grapefruit Daily Scrub at 13 USD per 150 ml for daily application.
