L’Oreal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Review
From papaya to pineapple, ingredients inspired by some of our favorite fruits making their way into your skin care products is nothing new. But that doesn’t make us any less excited to find out there’s a new fruit making rounds in the skincare sphere: kiwi. L’Oreal Paris recently unveiled a new sugar scrub—dubbed Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog—that’s formulated with three pure sugars and, you guessed it, kiwi seeds. The brand sent the new formula to the Skincare.com team to review, and we did just that. To learn about this fruity-scented, green-hued facial scrub, stick around for the full review ahead.
L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Review
Recommended For: Everyone needs to exfoliate their skin to slough away dead skin cells that can cause a dull skin appearance. For mechanical exfoliation, Purify & Unclog is the face scrub you want to reach for—regardless of your skin type. The formula is suitable for all skin types, and won’t dry out your skin.
Now that you know exfoliating is a must, let’s dive in to why you might want to reach for the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog in particular. Formulated with not only kiwi seeds, but also peppermint oil, lemongrass oil, and brown, blonde and white sugars, the gel scrub melts into your skin for a gentle, yet effective exfoliating session. After scrubbing, skin is purified, dull skin is gently polished away, and pores are unclogged for baby-soft skin. With continued use over one week, pores will look tighter, less visible, and skin will look healthier, smoother, and radiant.
Why We Love It: If you couldn’t already tell, let us confirm that we’re big fans of the Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog face scrub. After just one use, my skin felt purified and clean, and impurities on my skin’s surface were effectively removed. I kept using the scrub for up to one week and noticed that my skin not only felt incredibly smooth, but appeared less shiny, healthier, and rebalanced as well. Best of all, the formula can be used on the lips as well, and mine were left feeling baby soft.
How to Use It: Face scrubs may seem similar to cleansers (after all, they can both remove dirt, oil and impurities off the skin’s surface) but that doesn’t mean you use them the same way. For starters, cleansing is, in most cases, a twice-a-day activity, and exfoliating is not. When it comes to exfoliating, the general rule of thumb is to do so two to three times per week as tolerated. Beyond that, keeping a cleanser in your shower may be a convenient way to get clean, but the same can’t be said for your Pure-Sugar scrub, which should be applied onto dry skin.
To use, wash your face and pat dry before smoothing a small amount of the scrub onto your skin, being careful to avoid the eye area. Wet your fingers in the sink and massage the mask over your face to exfoliate, then rinse off with warm water. Once you’re finished, don’t let the scrub slip into the recesses of your skin care collection. You’ll want to break it out three times a week for the best results.
Editor’s tip: Don’t shelve your scrub when you’re finished exfoliating your face. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar scrubs can serve double-duty by working on lips too. Don’t you just adore a multi-tasker? Massage a small amount onto dry lips to smooth and refine. Now you’re ready to pucker up.
