I DON'T WANT NO SCRUBS! | My Favourite 'LIQUIDY' Exfoliators

Let's be honest, we all love to scrub our skin...scrub it so hard it hurts! The grittier the better right? Well apparently this is not the case. Thanks to a skincare genius called Caroline Hirons, I have recently learnt that a person with combination/oily skin that is prone to breakouts should never actually scrub their skin with manual exfoliants and should use a topical exfoliant, which is one that generally contains acids. I'm going to call them 'liquidy' exfoliants for the purpose of this blog because it makes more sense in my head. Seeing I have been giving my skincare products a bit of an overhaul recently due to the easy access and affordability of great products in the UK, I decided to try these two liquidy" exfoliators that give my skin love with fruit acids and enzymes.

Pixi Glow Tonic

Ahhh, the coveted Pixie Glow Tonic. This stuff is so popular, that you're lucky to even get a glimpse of it in the store.
