An Extra Bi-Weekly Pamper

Clean And Cleanse With Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub

GLOSSYBOX Skincare Clay Scrub

Whilst you shouldn’t exfoliate every day if you have dry skin, it should still be an important step in your skincare routine. We’d recommend doing it once a week with our Exfoliating Clay Scrub. This product gently buffs away dead skin cells, deeply cleanses your pores and restores your complexion’s radiance. One of our trialists said: 

“This is a fantastic product. It makes my skin feel amazing. I would definitely recommend this to anyone.”* 

*Based on consumer trial of 124 people. 

Why Our Exfoliating Clay Scrub Works  

To leave your skin feeling clean and refreshed, our Exfoliating Clay Scrub is made of a blend of three hardworking ingredients that are great for glowing skin. Rice makes for a great exfoliator, gently buffing away dead skin cells from even the trickiest of areas to reach, while Cornish clay draws out your skin’s impurities to deeply cleanse pores and helps leave the skin looking shine-free. Superhero ingredients glycolic acid and lactic acid also help to buff away dead skin, exfoliate and unclogging pores to reveal smoother, more radiant skin. 

How To Use The Exfoliating Clay Scrub  

As an exfoliator: At least once a week use gentle circular motions to apply an almond-sized amount onto damp skin, focusing on your nose and t-zone. Massage it into your skin for 30 to 40 seconds, then rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel.  

As a mask: Apply a smooth layer onto your skin and leave it on for 10 minutes. Rinse with lukewarm water and gently pat dry with a towel.  

Glossy Tip: When you exfoliate, you expose delicate skin that is easy to dry out, so make sure that you follow your full cleansing, toning and hydration routine after exfoliating.

I'm someone who loves getting glammed up, but I feel like I never have enough time. Frequently running between work, the gym and seeing friends means my makeup routine is quick and often touched up on the go. Therefore, beauty products that serve as multi-purpose are perfect for me - a blush that works for cheeks and lips is a must in my makeup bag!
