Pre Summer Skincare Prep: Exfoliation

Hello Everyone!


* Disclaimer: This post contains PR Samples provided by Zest and Tree Hut for review purposes. I would like to thank both companies for sending these products. Product information is courtesy of  the brands websites. All opinions are 100% my own

Today I'm sharing a few exfoliating products that I've been using to maintain healthy and soft skin, especially since Summer is right around the corner. For today's exfoliating products, I'll be focusing on Tree Hut's Skincare Exfoliating Mud Mask Detoxifying Charcoal Mask and Zest's Fruitboost Smoothie Body Scrubs.

Tree Hut Skincare Exfoliating Mud Mask Detoxifying  Charcoal Mask


Purify your skin with the activated charcoal in the Tree Hut Exfoliating Mud Mask. This multifunctional mask has Exotic Black Sand that preps skin by removing dead skin cells while Charcoal, Kaolin, and Bentonite draw out impurities and excess oil to help brighten dull looking skin.

My Thoughts

This is my first time using an exfoliating facial mud mask and I'm very impressed by the results. I've been using this at nightime for the past week and my face feels so cleansed. I noticed that I had a small dark blemish near the side my eye, and this facial scrub helped reduced the blemish. I'm thinking the aloe helped with the blemish issues since aloe has healing properties. This mask leaves my skin feeling so soft, and I love how this product is fortified with natural botanicals. I seriously should have tried facial masks a long time ago. I truly understand why facial masks are so popular! I've been a fan of Tree Hut products since last Summer and this is  a new product I'm adding to my skincare favorites list! If you're interested in trying this exfoliating mud mask, check it out at Ulta for $14.99

Zest Fruitboost Smoothie Body Scrubs


The perfect complement to these revitalizing showers gels are Zest Fruitboost Smoothie Body Scrubs which revitalize, smooth and soften skin with finely ground, natural apricot seeds that gently exfoliate, while natural avocado oils and other rich moisturizers help leave skin feeling soft and Zestfully Clean. Zest Fruitboost Shower Gels and Body Scrubs are free of parabens and phthalates.


FRUITBOOST VERY BERRY SCENT



A smooth burst of succulent berries combine in this luscious berry filled scent that nourishes your skin leaving you...Fresh. Fruity. Zestfully Clean!

FRUITBOOST PEACH MANGO SCENT



A deliciously sweet scent. An exotic burst of white peach and champagne mango to boost the power of your shower with this wonderfully juicy scent, leaving you...Fresh. Fruity. Zestfully Clean!

FRUITBOOST CITRUS SPLASH SCENT



The ultimate Citrus fragrance experience. A citrus sparkle with a touch of key lime to boost the power of your shower with an escape to the tropics, leaving you...Fresh. Fruity. Zestfully Clean!


My Thoughts

I'm so conflicted on which body scrub I love the best lol. All three scrubs smells absolutely amazing! I like using more tropical scents during the warmer months and all three scrubs are great to use during the Summer! These body scrubs contain avocado oil which is good for your skin. After usage, my skin feels so soft and this is before I even put on lotion or body butter. The scrubs aren't hard on your skin at all. I couldn't think of a better name for these smoothie body scrubs. I love to pair these scrubs with the Zest Fruitboost Body Washes as well. If you're trying to get silky smooth skin this Summer, I highly suggest picking up a jar of one these smoothie body scurbs at your local Walmart for about $5.00 (or less).

I love to exfoliate really well, then shave and get out of the shower and slather in a good body Butter. Then get into my bed! Lol. These sound amazing and I will definitely be trying them.

These masks sound great, Pilar. I think I'd like the peach mango the best. : ) It's been so long since I did a facial mask.

Have a lovely Sunday, dear.

Wow cool products

Ashley Sue said...

These all sound nice! The scrubs sound like they smell amazing! I'd love to try out that tree hut mask! My skin responds so well to clay masks that have charcoal and Koalin in them! I'll have to try it out since I need a new mask soon. Does it have a burn/tingly sensation at all?

Rowena @ rolala loves said...

Those body scrubs sound fantastic! I'm all about exfoliation and definitely even more so during the summer months. Gotta keep the skin fresh ;p

Paola Lauretano said...

Thanks!

Pilar said...

Thanks! The scrubs smells so good! The mask does have a slight tingly sensation, but it mellows out once the mask starts to harden, to me it's tolerable. I'm glad you asked me that question because I meant to mention that in my review. I Hope that info helps!

Pilar said...

So true! I tend to exfoliate more during the warmer months as well!

Pilar said...

Thanks!

Ashley Sue said...

That's good to know!! Im not a fan of ones that burn but I don't mind some tingling!

Pilar said...

I know what you mean! The tingling is tolerable, but I'm glad there wasn't any burning sensation! I'm very pleased with this being my first time using a charcoal face mask!

Nerline Germain said...

The packaging alone makes me want to buy all of them. I appreciate your honest review. I will look for them next time I visit my local beauty stores.

Pilar said...

Thanks, and the packaging is such an attention grabber lol! These are amazing exfoliation skincare products!

Elle Sees said...
