Just a quick review today to share my thoughts on The Body Shop's facial buffer.

 As some of you may know I work at The Body Shop and have done since I was 17. So I've tried nearly all the products!
I had never given much thought to the humble facial buffer. I use facial scrubs all the time and I usually use a muslin cloth when using facial washes so I just didn't think there was room in my daily cleansing routine for a buffer. HOW WRONG WAS I?!

I started using this little beauty a few weeks ago and since then my skin has become so much brighter and smoother. At first I was a little worried about it being too harsh for my skin but it is just the right texture for a daily exfoliation. I've been using it with my Dermalogica special cleansing gel and although my skin is still far from perfect I feel like it has really improved my skin-tone and is helping reduce my pesky acne scarring.
The buffer retails at £4 and is worth every penny!

It's so simple to use, just dampen the buffer with a little hot water and disperse a squidge (technical measure) of your usual facial wash in the middle, then using a light pressure massage around your dampened face in a circular motion to really boost the circulation and remove the dry skin cells. The little strap on the back means you can control the intensity of the exfoliation but don't scrub too vigorously!

Have you used The Body Shop facial buffer or something similar before?
Thanks for reading :)
