As I’m testing very little skincare at the moment because I’m doing a month trial for Vichy LiftActiv, I thought I’d give the Goldfadden MD Doctor’s Scrub a whirl as it won’t really interfere with what I’m already doing. Oh… my…. goodness! This is one heck of a scrub!
Basically, if you have sensitive skin, steer clear. It’s one of those very abrasive scrubs that I would advise that you only use every now and again and only if you don’t suffer any sensitivities or skin redness. It didn’t make my skin sore or red at all, but just because it’s so strong, I’d be cautious. It’s about as strong as I’d be prepared to go with a scrub, I must admit.
So, Goldfadden MD Doctor’s Scrub (£65 HERE) contains ruby crystals, not that I think that matters at all, but it also has my skin bestie, Hyaluronic, in it alongside some seaweed extracts (I’ve put the ingredient list at the bottom of the post). So, it’s a high strength product and if your skin can take it, gives phenomenal results. My skin is softer than a soft thing on a soft day and it looks brighter than it did, too!
Personally, despite all the warnings, I like a properly scrubby scrub – no encapsulated micro-beads for me – if you’re going to remove dead cells and brighten, then it often takes something a little more – er – brutal.
After I’d used it, there was a very clear difference in brightness, but I was glad to get my LiftActiv back on because my skin was begging for some moisture. It’s expensive, but my goodness, it works.
