Acure Brightening Facial Scrub (Exfoliator)

acure-brightening-facial-scrubAcure Facial Scrub

My skin with #nomakeup + #nofilter + flash 😳 My skin is not perfect. I obviously have some red spots, discoloration, and SUPER DRY skin. However, I’ve been loving this exfoliator because it’s been so helpful in cleaning off the dry, dead skin cells, plus of course #crueltyfree & #vegan . Since it’s colder out here in #NYC , Ive had to exfoliate less (from 5 days a week to about 2-3), so I might use it in combination with a gentler exfoliator to continue to exfoliate every day bc that’s what I think helps my skin the most (this one is pretty coarse/rough). I still love it though, it’s definitely kept my skin matte and clear overall.

8/10 – recommended for people with dry/combination skin like me!
