    I really like the 7 Day Scrub by Clinique, but if you really want to push the boat out, try 'Breakfast Smoothie' by Temple Spa. I'll admit to recently indulging myself by puchasing their cleanser, toner and moisuriser and you get a masque/exfoliator as a freebie when you buy a starter pack (you get puchase a starter pack as many times as you like) and I absolutely love it. It's expensive, but I've decided that my skin is worth the investment and after suffering with adult acne for years and year - to the point of using accutane etc - my skin is now in the best condition ever after using these products.
    Drawbacks: it's expensive and you cannot purchase it in shops, only online or via a consultant (luckily, the girl who runs the beauty salon at my gym uses and order these products).

    I'll also add that your products come delivered in a lovely arrangement with tissue paper and a couple of chocolates included. Yummmm!
  6. Oh no! I never buy them.
    Oatmeal scrubs are quick and easy and you can change them to match your faces current foibles. That and you don' thave to buy anything extra (assuming you like eating porridge).
    Oatmeal and water
    Grapefruit and oatmeal, a little astringent
    Oatmeal and bicarb, weird but really smoothing
    With honey to moisturise or a wholeheap of different fruits or even cream cheese.

    There are lots of recipes online. Lots of them double up as bath soaks too!

  7. I use No7 exfoliating scrub after cleanser, but my favourite is Elemis skin buff. The grains are small and I don't feel 'overscrubbed' with that. You can get small tubes on ebay for quite a reasonable price.

    I'd imagined this thread was related in someway to some of the **** videos I've seen. It's not though, is it,... or is it?

    The St Ives apricot ones are the only ones scrubby enough for me!
  10. Liz Earle is lovely and gentle. But I liked the oatmeal recipes! Oatmeal and yoghurt would be good too.
  11. I use Elemis Papaya Enzyme peel, it is pricey but you only need a little. You use it as a mask but it has an exfoliating effect without the grainy bits! (I have very sensitive skin and go red like a beetroot if i use a scrub!)

    I don't tend to spend much on toiletries (compared to my make-up expenditure anyway!), so would normally buy a cheap Boots facial scrub.
    The suggestions here do sound lovely though. I probably should buy a good scrub as I often fall asleep with my make-up on [​IMG], so my skin doesn't feel as smooth as it should.

    I use a Soap and Glory one from Boots.

    Depending on my mood and my finances, either Clarins one-step gentle exfoliator (a very pretty apricot colour) or Lush Angels on bare skin (looks a bit yukky but smells nice, a bit lavender-y, but notin a old lady way, makes me feel nice and relaxed before sleep)

    The St Ives apricot one leaves my skin feeling lovely and clean.
  16. Horrible stuff - should be banned. [​IMG]

    I use water!
    Don't use anything new until the first day of the summer hols in case you have a reaction

    Me too and it's really cheap to buy.
  19. Not a scrub as such, but I can recommend No. 7 Radiance Boosting Hot Cloth Cleanser.
    It leaves your skin feeling absolutely wonderful.
