I am going to be starting a new series called this or that comparing two similar products.
For my first This or That I am going to compare:
I have normal to combination skin. I live in the North East where the weather has gotten colder.
Let’s see what the products claim…
“Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub
Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub is a gentle daily exfoliator to help slough away dead skin cells and restore your skin’s natural radiance. It is formulated with Lemon Balm to help calm and repair damaged skin and Grapefruit, which naturally evens skin tone and enhances luminosity, leaving skin soft, smooth, and naturally hydrated.
MAKES SKIN BRIGHTER, CLEARER, AND MORE RADIANT!

“Garnier Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator for Combination Skin

In 1 use: Excess oil is removed and skin is smoothed.

Yes to Grapefruit Daily Facial Scrub
$10 for 4 oz
Great natural real grapefruit scent
Does not lather
After daily use for a month my skin looked more radiant and felt smooth
Garnier Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator for Combination Skin
$8 for 5oz can often get it on sale and use coupons
Finer grain of exfoliant
Pleasant perfume grapefruit scent, not a natural grapefruit scent
After daily use for a month my skin was dryer with less oil
Which to I prefer…Drum roll please!
I have used the entire bottle of Yes to grapefruit daily facial scrub. I love the scent of it and the way it makes my skin look and feel. With daily consistent use, I feel like it did make a difference on my skin’s appearance and feel.
I would repurchase the Garnier Clean + Balancing Daily Exfoliator for Combination Skin. I have enjoyed using it these last few weeks. I feel like it is just not the right choice for my skin at this time of year. I will try it again in the summer months and see if my skin reacts to it in a different way.
Let me know what other types of products you would like to see compared.
