I truly believe in the benefits of a good scrub at last once a week if not more often. Yes, I’m a scrub-a-holic, but I know that my skin looks years younger because I exfoliate on a regular basis. I particularly enjoy a manual natural exfoliant on my face and body — I enjoy the feel and the satisfaction of immediate results.
I was recently send Dermesse Natural Sugar Scrub to review and I’m definitely a fan. Before I tell you my results, here are the details about the product.

On first use, I was a bit surprised when I applied this scrub to my face. Dermesse Natural Sugar Scrub is PURE scrub — no creamy ingredients to buffer the abrasiveness. So, applying this scrub directly to your face can be a bit harsh, however, if you use it on wet skin, you will love it.
The sugar exfoliates extremely well, and melts into your skin as water is added. The paste consistency of the scrub when wet is perfect. After using this scrub, my face feels just lovely– clean, fresh and like a I had a deep cleansing treatment.
After I read up on the product on their site, Dermesse.com, I found that this natural sugar scrub is good for body too. SCORE! I love a sugar body scrub, and this one feels great right out of the jar when I apply it on my body. So, I suggest doing a “dry” scrub, then letting a little shower water wet the scrub, rub it until is melts, then rinse. You will love it.
