Hardcore Scrub Action: Freeze 24/7 Ice Crystals Anti-Aging Prep and Polish

This pretty little number popped through my postbox just as my beloved Alpha H Micro Cleanse exfoliator ran out, which was very fortuitous indeed.  Freeze 24/7, well known for their icy themed products, have created an "anti-aging" exfoliator, aptly named Ice Crystals.

It contains both micro-scrubby particles and larger turquoise beads for a deep exfoliation which promises to resurface and retexturise the surface of the skin in minutes.

If you look closely, you can see that the white cream is not actually a white cream - the whiteness comes from the density of the micro-scrubby-bits.  And therein is your first clue that this scrub is very, very hardcore.  The first time I used it, I was perhaps a bit over enthusastic in the massaging, and my skin felt a little raw and over scrubbed afterwards.  Since then, I've been using a tiny amount, on wet skin, and barely massaging it over my face.  Sensitive skins should probably avoid altogether, or use it very infrequently - it's so easy to overboard.

If you like your exfoliators closer to the sandpaper end of the scrubby scale, then you may well like this.  If you prefer chemical or fruit based exfoliators which don't really physically scrub, you'll probably hate it.  I'm kind of torn - it does deliver incredible results (brightness, softness, and less noticeable acne scars) but it's also a little bit scary.

Find it at BeautyBay where it's currently reduced to £24.50 from it's RRP of £30.

  1. 90% of my exfoliation comes from toners and masks,when I use a physical scrub I like it to be scrubby.
