Anyone who likes scrubs such as St Ives, this isn't for you.
Avene claim that this scrub is effective yet gentle and will eliminate impurities gently with it's exfoliating micro-beads causing no irritation to sensitive skin. It uses something called a Keratoregluating agent which stimulates skin cell renewal and can also help with minor skin imperfections. As promised, the micro-beads are gentle, they don't scratch the skin. The beads are held within a light gel which feels cooling and one rinsed off, my skin feels fresh and smooth. I don't experience any redness when using this scrub and would recommend it to anyone with sensitive skin who prefers a manual exfoliator but at the same time I wouldn't - The tube claims to hold 50ml of product but mine was just over half full (30ml max) plus it was sealed so I know no-one had used it before me. I can't remember how much I paid but I know it wasn't cheap. It hasn't helped to even my skin tone or help with minor imperfections so for that reason I more than likely won't be in any rush to repurchase a half empty product.
If you've tried this before let me know if you had the same problem.
