Skin care is my weakness but more often than not you need to pay a bit more for something that actually works. Nine times out of ten (in my experience) you get what you pay for when it comes to skin care so for that reason I don't mind paying extra for a product that really delivers and makes a noticeable difference to my skin. BUT, every now and again an affordable product comes along and wows me. As you can tell from the title of this post, the product I'm talking about is Good Things Manuka Honey Refining Scrub*
If you aren't familiar with Good Things, it's an affordable skin care brand developed by beauty writer Alice Hart-Davis to care for young skin. The products are free from SLS, Parabens and mineral oil, and can be found in Boots. Even though the line is designed to care for young skin, there are a few products which could be used no matter your age, the Manuka Honey Refining Scrub being one of them. The Manuka Honey range has been designed to help keep skin clear and hydrated. Usually products targeted towards keeping skin clear are very harsh and leave the skin feeling stripped to within an inch of it's life but not this one. The texture is very creamy (think Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish) and packed full of oatmeal. The oatmeal really gives a good scrub but without feeling sharp and scratchy, it feels like massaging porridge all over your face. It also contains Kaolin to draw out excess oil and sweet almond oil which leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.
So how affordable is it? It's currently on introductory offer at only 3.33 but even at full price it's only 4.99 for 150ml (yes, my pound sign still isn't working) No matter your budget, give this a try if you're a fan of manual scrubs.
