Organic Vitamin-Rich Sweet Glow Face Scrub, All you Need to Know

This vitamin-rich scrub uses coconut sugar to gently buff away dull, dry skin and unblock pores.

Exfoliating with this scrub will help make your skin look smoother and brighter. It can also help combat the signs of aging and contains skin-protecting properties, which fight against free radicals.

Give your skin an extra boost by gently wiping away the coconut sugar and massaging the leftover oil into the skin, allowing the oil to fully absorb into your skin.

Use the scrub as a self-tan prep to remove dead skin cells and unwanted leftover fake tan.

How To Use

Using dry hands or a spatula to remove the scrub from the pot, apply a small amount of the scrub to damp skin and massage in circular motions. Rinse scrub away with warm water.

For an extra boost for your skin, gently wipe away the coconut sugar and massage in the leftover oil, allowing it to fully absorb into your skin.

Use 1-3 times per week.

Avoid contact with eyes. If product enters the eyes rinse with clean water. For external use only. Do not use on broken or irritated skin.

No Palm Oil

Many skincare products list palm oil, or its derivatives, in their ingredients but we choose not to use it in any form in ours, due to its negative impact on the environment, habitat, animals and eco-systems.

There’s hardly a day goes by without reading in the press about deforestation for palm oil production and the fact that they very existence of orangutans is threatened because of this.

Many ingredients used in skincare include a derivative of palm oil, and it’s not always obvious that it’s been used. For example, some emulsifiers are sourced from either palm oil or coconut and the manufacturer of the emulsifier may not differentiate the source. We can confirm that no palm oil or derivatives of palm oil are used in any of our products.

Palm oil (including derivatives of palm oil)
Petroleum

Alcohol
Formaldehyde

FAQs
  • How often should I use this face scrub?

We recommend using the scrub 1-3 times per week

  • If I have oily skin, can I use it?

Face scrubs do help oily skin and we’d recommend using twice a week for best results. When using any new product we recommend doing a patch test first. See here for how to patch test.

  • Should I use this on wet or dry skin?

We recommend using our scrub on damp skin.

  • How do I remove the Scrub from the pot?

We recommend always using dry hands or a spatula to remove the scrub from the pot, to avoid any water being introduced to the product. If this happened, the water could dissolve the scrub particles.

  • Is it suitable for sensitive skin?

Our Vitamin-Rich Sweet Glow Scrub contains natural ingredients, sugars and oils, to create the physical scrub. We recommend gently massaging onto damp skin. Do not over scrub, a gentle once over will be enough to get the benefits of this product. If in doubt when introducing a new product, we recommend doing a patch test first.

  • When should I do a patch test?

When using any new product we recommend doing a patch test first. See here for how to patch test.

  • Where should I use it in my skincare routine?

The best time to use a face scrub is after cleansing, once you have removed all makeup, dirt and grime and you have clean skin. This will give you the best results as the product can get into the skin and remove dead skin cells and the build-up of dirt, grime and blocked pores.

A scrub is an amazing addition to your routine and should leave your skin feeling softer, brighter, invigorated and leave you with glowing skin. Be light with your fingertips, avoid over scrubbing and dragging the skin. You will know if you have overused or scrubbed too hard with a physical exfoliant as your skin will be red.

  • Can I use Lucy Bee Dazzling Tonic the same day as the Vitamin-Rich Sweet Glow Face Scrub?

We wouldn’t suggest using both on the same day. Ultimately, they are both exfoliators so for most people it’s not necessary to use both on the same day. If you have problematic skin or oily combination with no sensitivity you could use both, it really depends on your skin type.

  • What do you mean when you say a physical scrub and a liquid exfoliant?

A chemical exfoliant uses acids or enzymes to dissolve and loosen the dead skin cells, while physical exfoliant (products containing small particles, or any sort of textured surface) work by scrubbing away the dead skin.

  • Can the scrub remove unwanted fake tan?

Yes, it’s brilliant at removing any unwanted fake tan before your next application. The rule is the same, be gentle with the pressure on your skin. The scrub and oil will do all the hard work.

  • Is there any aftercare after using the scrub?

You should wear SPF daily, but it is even more important when using any sort of exfoliant. This will protect the new skin against UV rays. See here for more on the importance of spf.

  • Can teenagers use this Face Scrub?

Although it’s not been tested on teenagers, the ingredients used are completely natural. As with introducing any new product, we would recommend doing a patch test first.

  • Does this product contain alcohol?

In the cosmetic world, when a product states that it is “alcohol free” it is referring to the formulation being free from Alcohol Denat / Ethanol (ethyl alcohol), which our Radiance-Boosting Face Cream, Reviving Cleansing Cream and Dazzling Tonic and Vitamin-Rich Sweet Glow Face Scrub are free from.

All other types of alcohol such as fatty alcohols (cetearyl alcohol, cetyl alcohol, etc.), preservatives such as Benzyl Alcohol should not be taken into consideration in this respect. Lucy Bee uses benzyl alcohol in some products. This is a broad-spectrum preservative system (it means it protects against bacteria, yeast and fungi) for personal care (combined to dehydroacetic acid). It meets COSMOS Organic standard and is effective in a wide pH range.

  • How should I store this?

Store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight or heat.

  • Does this product contain nuts?

Yes, this contains almond oil and is not suitable for those with nut allergies
