I know it’s been a little while between my blogposts but I’m getting back into my usual routine so hopefully you’ll start to see more blogposts.
Anyways today I want to talk about a product I’ve been using for nearly a year now. It’s called Alba Botanics Face & Body Scrub and it was £7.99 from Holland & Barrett, this is actually my second bottle and this time I got the Alba Botanics Deep Pore Face Wash as well and this was £8.99.
Little Background Story
I have a little body acne around my chest area which leaves the most disgusting looking marks and it genuinely makes me feel insecure. I also get acne at the top of my arms but it’s not as bad as my chest. My face isn’t bad anymore, I used to suffer from acne on my face so badly, it was so raw and painful but I’ve been looking after my skin a lot now.
I know I’m not the only one in this department but do you ever feel as though you have a bit of texture on your bum cheeks? Like little tiny bumps, not spots, it’s not itchy or anything it’s just the texture. As if it’s very tiny little dots around your bum cheeks. We get this texture around our bums because that area doesn’t have much time to breath, it’s always covered and we’re always sitting so there isn’t much time to let your bum breath (it’s a thing, bums need to have fresh air as well).
It got to a point where I was left with so many marks on my chest and arms, also I feared I would end up getting discolouration on my bum. I thought over time that area where I can feel tiny dots on my bum are going to get darker because my bum can’t breath, I had to fix it. I then came across the Alba’s Body Scrub and it has literally made a huge difference in my skin. I’m not even kidding guys literally my skin feels so smooth after using this but it has cleared up my body acne. I also use it on my face and all my pores are unclogged and there’s no texture on my face either.
The thing that is so good about this product is it contains 2% Salicylic Acid. Salicylic Acid dissolves any debris, it dissolves blackheads and whiteheads and leaves your skin feeling the most clean it’s ever been. I only use this twice a week, it’s quite strong and will for sure dry out your skin if you use it everyday. I highly don’t recommend it to anyone with dry skin because it will make your skin very flaky. If you have oily to combination skin and have problematic skin, give this a try but remember don’t use it too often.
I ended up getting the face wash this time round when I bought the scrub and this is more for everyday use as it isn’t so harsh. My skin feels a lot more clean and any previous scarring I’ve had is fading a lot quicker.
If you give it a try, let me know what you think of it 🙂
