Call it a scrub, an exfoliator or even a buffer. We call Neutrogena‘s Deep Clean Gentle Scrub a face-saver. Why? Because thanks to the winter season with its frigid-cold outdoors and desert-hot indoors, your skin is about to turn dry and flaky—a conundrum that cannot be resolved with mere soap and water. You need a scrub and we promise, it’ll be the best 10 seconds you spend in the shower.

Using a facial scrub helps remove dead skin cells, eliminate sweat and grime, prevent breakouts and minimize blackheads, lift hard-to-manage beard hairs, boost cellular regeneration (a.k.a: a health glow), and provide you with a deep clean. Sounds like a lot of work, right? The secret is in Neutrogena’s formulation.

Teeny-tiny microbeads—miniscule balls that are infused into the thick liquid—are responsible for the heavy lifting.  They won’t pull or tear your skin either, so the scrub is gentle enough to use every single day. The formulation is also oil free, non-comedogenic (won’t make you break out) and contains deep cleansing ingredient Beta Hydroxy to help combat excess oil. And when you step out of the shower and look in the mirror, you’ll be instantly gratified.

Your complexion will look fresh, have improved circulation and feel soft and smooth. It will also better absorb your moisturizer, because hey, let’s face it (no pun intended), you won’t be slapping your lotion over top of layers of dead skin cells any more. Consider it a good thing.

Neutrogena Deep Clean Gentle Scrub comes in 125 ml for $9.99. It’s available at Shoppers Drug Mart, and drugstores across Canada.
