Johnson's Daily Essentials Gentle Exfoliating Wash

I've been using the Johnson's Daily Essentials Gentle Exfoliating Wash for about two months now and I've got to say, I love it! It's so much better than I expected it to be. It's not my all-time favourite exfoliator, that position is held by the Burt's Bees Citrus Facial Scrub, but it's definitely up there and I have been using it most mornings.

This facial wash is very affordable, but more difficult to get hold of than it should be. I can only seem to find it at Asda or on Amazon and nowhere else, so do let me know if you spot it anywhere. It seems to be on a long term deal at Asda with lots of other treats for you face at 3 for £6, otherwise it's £3 a bottle (£4 odd on Amazon); which I think you'll agree is a good price.

First up, I like the packaging. Pink and white gives it a clean, fresh appearance and I love those colours. It smells nice and is suitable for all skin types; even those of you with lovely sensitive faces out there. I really love how you can feel the exfoliating micro beads in this; they are extremely fine, but vast so you definitely get the feeling of a well-exfoliated face! It just feels like you're polishing your skin and revealing a delightfully bright you underneath.

One thing I should note is when rinsing it off, use a face cloth or even a moisturising facial wipe as when I just used water (and I swear, I rinsed it well), I realised I had some of the exfoliating beads around my hairline and temples after my face dried. I took note and made sure to rinse better the next few times, but it kept happening. It wasn't until I used a cloth that it stopped happening, so water alone may not completely rinse your face and the last thing you want is some dried white bits of facial wash popping up around your face looking like your skin is flaking off. Luckily, I noticed the first time and kept an eye on it after that, but just a heads up. You don't need to use much when you use this wash as it lathers up beautifully and I use it once a day (I use my Burt's Bees on an evening), and I'm still only halfway through my first bottle after about 2 months. I bought three for £6 and I've given one to my mum to try, so after I've used my second bottle, I'll definitely be going back for more.

Don't forget to use a moisturiser after you've washed your face - I keep hearing people with oily skin saying they don't use moisturiser and I'm starting to get worried. Ladies (and gentlemen), you do realise that your face will only get oilier if you don't moisturise? Let me know if you would like a post on skin types and the kind of skincare routine you should be following and I'll be happy to get on it.
