Scrubs to lub - or love but that doesn't rhyme - from Kibio, Lise Watier, Olay and Biotherm!

Kibio Soft Scrubbing Cream - 50ml - $22 - a creamy foam with a sweet almond fragrance that gently scrubs and refines the skin's texture.  Contains apricot kernel powder to gently refine the skin's surface, verbena floral water to soften and soothe and bitter almond essential oil for fragrance.  It's 98.7% natural and 89.2% organic and what makes it really environmentally friendly is the jar it comes in which is made from 100% recycled glass.

I wasn't sure that I was going to like it as I'm used to using gels but it's such a  light cream and feels so soft that I couldn't help but love it - the smell is really nice - fresh and sweet - too!

Available at selected Shoppers Drug Mart stores.

Lise Watier Skin Radiance Smoothing Exfoliating Gel - 75ml - $27 - for normal/combo skin - with grapefruit and jojoba, it smells good and feels great! It's scruby without being harsh and rinses off really easily.  If you have dry skin and prefer a cream exfoliant - they have one of those too!
Olay Total Effects 7-in1 Anti-Aging Cleanser Refreshing Citrus Scrub - 192ml - $14.99 -more than just a scrub it also: thoroughly cleanses, minimizes the appearance of pores, brightens skin's appearance, gently exfoliates, smooths skin's texture and minimizes the appearance of lines.  The scrub itself is super mild so if you like to scrub every day, this would be a great choice - what I love most about it... the smell!  It's super citrusy!
Biotherm Biosource Clarifying Exfoliating Gel - 75ml - $30 - for normal/combo skin - enriched with mineral salts and essential trace elements, it provides two-way exfoliation in order to cleanse the face deep down for a more radiant complexion - it has a nice clean scent, a light texture and just the right amount of scrub to it.  There's a cream version as well for dry skin.

With all the scrubbing I do it's a wonder that there's any skin left on my face!  Have a favourite scrub that I need to try - do tell!

  1. I use the Kibio line and love it! Great to see it highlighted :)

  2. Yes, yes there is! I love Skeyndor Essential Soft Peeling Exfoliant. It's the only product I'll spend money on, aside from Clinique Liquid Soap and Clarifying Lotion. The "gommage" style (!) scrub doesn't feel like it is doing much but after a few weeks you will see visible change. I can't say enough of about it!!

  3. love kibio!! very good brand!

    gonna check out kibio next time i go to shoppers ~
