My beauty habits have simplified a great deal since having two kids. I've slowly transitioned from a cabinet full of department store products to a handful of things I can pick up at Walmart. It's been a long time since I dedicated entire evenings to three-stage, at-home skin treatments is what I'm saying.
With that in mind, I picked up this $10 Alba Botanical Hawaiian Facial Scrub at Walmart yesterday, because I was feeling like my skin was looking rather dull and blah.
I put a little bit of this on my face, rinsed with warm water and WHOA. It was like I had a whole new face and I am not even making that up a little bit. A WHOLE NEW FACE! Seriously, I felt like it looked more glowy and bright right afterward and my makeup looked fantastic this morning on my pineapple-scrubbed skin.
It's kind of foamy and has some small beads in it, but they aren't very big and they're definitely not rough or scratchy. They're kind of pleasant actually, the way they scrub off the indignities of motherhood and leave me smelling of tropical fruit.
So! Highly recommend this drugstore product. It's not super fancy but if you are an occasional user of this kind of thing and don't want to pony up big bucks for a Serious Skin Treatment Product, this is rather pleasant and a pretty cheap thrill. (Also if you dislike it for your face for whatever reason, I bet your feet would totally love it which makes it a no-lose $10 purchase.)
