Maybe I'm super late to knowing this, but Asda do their own range of skin care!? I bought this on a whim as I went in looking for my tried and trusted Garnier Micellar water; however I spotted this and thought I'd give it a whirl as it was super cheap! 

The first night I used this, I wasn't balled over. I'm so used to my Garnier water melting my makeup off in seconds, but this did need a little more work, and I found myself scrubbing my eyes to try and remove my mascara. It did a pretty good job of removing my face makeup, but I wasn't balled over.

I used it the second night however, and gave it more time and I was pretty impressed this time! I held the cotton pad over my eyes for about 10/15 seconds and discovered that it needs that time to really get into your makeup, and when I was a little more patient with it, it did a great job! Overall, it does what it says on the tin, for a really good price. It didn't string my eyes or my face at all, so I'd agree that it's gentle and great for sensitive skin. As for the multi vitamins, I'm not too sure the benefits and effects of those, but overall it's a nice product!

I think my favourite way to use this is going to be as a quick and easy cleanse in the morning before I put my makeup on, as so far that's been working great. I'm interested in trying more from Asda's own range if I can get my hands on some! 

Let me know what you think if you've tried anything!

Skin Stats:
Oily in most areas with dehydration on nose/forehead
Blemish Prone/Large Pores
Slight Redness

I love the body shop when it comes to anything really, but I seriously love their skin care. I've tried a few things from them before, but this is probably my favourite product that I've tried. As a makeup artist, when I'm working, I like a full coverage and I like my makeup to last a long time so it goes without saying that I wear a lot of products on my face, so I need a good scrub every now and again!

Off the bat, the packaging is lovely, I like a squeezing tube as for me personally, it reduces the mess I make. I love Soap and Glory's body exfoliators, but I hate how they come in a pot as they just get filled with so much water and you end up wasting product. So packaging for this is a 10/10!

 I love this exoliator as its a physical one; by that I mean it has lovely little scrubby grains in it, which you can really feel getting all the gunk out of your pores. I usually use mine in the shower as I find all exfoliators in general can get a bit messy; but also because I use this on my chest and back too which I find works great for any chest/back blemishes too.

The smell is lovely, its gorgeous and fresh, nothing too offensive, it also creates a soapy lather when you're scrubbing away, which I love too! This is the only exfoliator that I've tried as of yet, that leaves my skin feeling SO soft after I've used it. Im very impatient I will admit, and I like to see and feel a product getting to work straight away, and this gives you instant results of squeaky clean, smooth feeling skin.

I highly recommend, give it a go!
