I used to used a lovely Philosophy Greatest Love facial scrub that has now been discontinued. It was large granules in a kind of Vaseline type jelly. So not only did it scrub, it conditioned and made my skin dewy.
Have tried loads to get the same effect, but haven't chanced upon a good substitute yet...
Can any of you help me in my quest ?!

I like the Clinique one. It exfoliates without being scratchy.

Dermalogica do a great range, I use the everyday one which is ground rice as the exfoliant, sounds like it would do nothing but it is truly amazing and skin feels so soft.

Didn't think about Dermalogica, used to use active moist etc. What's it called?

this stuff is fab - really leaves my skin softer and smoother. Lasts ages too. Love love love Philosophy, their skincare range is amazing. Haven't ever found anything to compare, really. And I've tried a LOT of products.....

That's the scrub I used to have! But they have discontinued it. Have you tried any of the others?

I use the Dermalogica Microfoliant, but they do a few of them, if you go online and use the virtual analyzer (sp?) they will tell you which one is best for you!
