The Face Scrubs I Love!

I've noticed an overwhelming number of face scrubs/exfoliants containing salicylic acid while perusing the skin care aisles at my local CVS, Target, or Wal-Mart. Salicylic acid is also marketed under the name of "beta hydroxy" and it is usually a key ingredient in many products for the treatment of acne. All this is fine and dandy if your skin actually gets along well with salicylic acid and it results in proper exfoliation. Unfortunately my skin has some sort of beef with salicylic acid and it results in dry patches, "the flakeys", and peeling blemishes. I don't know about you but I find those attributes in my skin to be not so appealing. Yuck. So it became a mission to find an exfoliant or two that didn't contain salicylic acid. I like having "options" so I present you with three fabulous exfoliants - two from the drugstore, one from the department store.

Olay Regenerist Thermal Skin Polisher - I love how this heats up and I like really using it in the shower because the steam warms the product up a bit more. It rinses clean with no residue which is a plus!

Biore Pore Minimizing Microderm Exfoliator - This stuff is especially great for the t-zone and the skin on my nose has gotten smoother with a few less blackheads.

Clinique 7-Day Scrub Cream Rinse Off Formula - I received this in a Clinique bonus recently and I've tried it before in years past. This scrub is different than most because it works better on dry skin than wet. This almost reminds me of the Biore scrub mixed in with a face cream. This stuff is great for a "scrub on the run" because it takes under a minute to scrub and rinse off!

I hope one of these scrubs work could work for you because I certainly love them!
