Soap & Glory 'Scrub Your Nose In It' // Review


Today I've got a review of the Soap & Glory 'Scrub Your Nose In It' facial scrub. I've been using this product for a few weeks now after picking it up on a whim in Boots and have been pretty pleased with the results so far.

I suffer from quite dry skin, something I've talked about before, and so I'm always on the hunt for good exfoliators to keep my skin soft and smooth. This particular one from Soap & Glory is targeted at clogged pores, which is something I don't think much about as I'm still learning the ins and outs of skincare, but it seemed to promise good things so I decided to give it a go. What I stupidly didn't notice when I picked this up however, is that its aimed at oily/combination skin which I don't personally suffer from too much in general. Saying that though, one of my problem areas is my nose, which can get quite oily throughout the day. It's also where my pores are most visible, so I thought that, even though I can't really use this on my whole face, I can concentrate its benefits on my nose and see how it turns out.

'Scrub Your Nose In It', as stated on the S&G website, is formulated with their deep pore detoxing D-CLOG™MICROMUD which is a "super clarifying, triple action, diatomaceous earth mix" and helps to exfoliate, clean and purify the skin. It also contains Yuzu, (which helps to tone and brighten), Montmorillite Clay (helps to soak up oils) and Super Aha Fruit Acids (helps to get rid of dead cells), which all sound super scientific and serious!

I use this scrub about once or twice a week, depending on how my skin is looking and feeling and its really been making a difference. My nose is a lot smoother, making foundation apply much more evenly and look less cakey. I've also noticed that the number of blackheads have certainly decreased and despite a little oilyness at the sides of my nose, overall it's pretty oil free.

The exfolating beads in the scrub are quite small and gritty, making them a little uncomfortable if you really get in there with the scrubbing, but otherwise OK. My skin can also feel a little sensitive after use, but I suffer from that with a lot of products so it's not a major issue. As with all Soap & Glory products, this scrub smells amazing with a refreshing, minty scent. 

For a pretty great exfoliator, this one from Soap & Glory is a steal at £9! I will definitely be trying out some of their other skincare products after such a good experience with this one,
