What Is a Sugar Scrub? What Is a Sugar Scrub? What Is a Sugar Scrub?

You’ve likely used a face scrub as part of your skin care routine a time or two. After all, it’s one of the most popular skin care products, up there with facial cleansers, moisturizers, and face masks. But it turns out that there are different types of face scrubs—and today, we’re here to talk to you about one particular kind that’s super-trendy these days. What type of face scrub are we alluding to? That’d be the sugar scrub! Keep reading to learn all about sugar scrubs, plus find out how to choose the best sugar scrub for your skin.

What Is a Sugar Scrub?

Let’s back up a sec: A face scrub is a skin care product that can be used to mechanically exfoliate dead skin cell buildup from the surface of your skin. And sugar scrubs are a type of face scrub. Typically, they’re formulated with sugar granules, which are used to help physically exfoliate that dead skin cell buildup. Exfoliating with a sugar scrub can help create the appearance of smoother, glowing skin. Just keep in mind that generally, you wouldn’t exfoliate with a sugar scrub every day—consider it a sweet treat for your skin that you’d use a few times a week.  That being said, sugar scrubs typically offer gentle yet effective exfoliation.

What’s the Best Sugar Scrub for Your Skin?

Ready to add a sugar scrub to your skin care routine? We’ve got three options for you below. Each of our three sugar scrubs is formulated with a naturally derived blend of three pure sugars for gentle yet effective exfoliation. (L’Oréal Paris considers an ingredient to be naturally-derived if it is unchanged from its natural state or has undergone processing yet still retains greater than 50 percent of its molecular structure from its original natural source.)

L’Oréal Paris Pure-Sugar Purify & Unclog Face Scrub: For a purified and clean look and feel, turn to this sugar scrub, which is formulated with kiwi seeds in addition to three sugars. Immediately, dirt, oil, and impurities are effectively removed, while dull skin is gently polished away. With continued use over time, skin feels baby-soft, smooth and comforted, while pores look tighter, unclogged, and less visible—and skin looks less shiny and has more of a glow. 

L’Oréal Paris Nourish & Soften Face Scrub: Also formulated with finely crushed cocoa, luxurious coconut oil, and rich cocoa butter, this butter-soft sugar scrub is kind to your skin. Immediately, skin looks more refined and feels softer and smoother, while dirt, oil, and impurities are effectively removed and dull skin is gently polished away. With continued use over time, skin feels nourished, softer, and more supple, while dry skin is smoothed.

L’Oréal Paris Smooth & Glow Face Scrub: Want baby-soft skin? Try this sugar scrub, which is formulated with finely ground acai as well as grapeseed and monoi oils. Immediately, skin feel smoother and looks glowing, while dull skin is gently polished away and dirt, oil, and impurities are effectively removed. Skin feels baby-soft, smooth, and comforted and looks glowing with continued use over time.

How Do You Use a Sugar Scrub?

Using a sugar scrub is easy! Once you’ve chosen which of our three sugar scrubs above is best for your skin, smooth a small amount onto clean, dry skin using dry fingers. Then, gently massage the sugar scrub over your face with wet fingers. Rinse thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use three times a week as part of your skin care routine.

Bonus: You can also use our line of sugar scrubs on your lips! Applying lipstick over dry, flaky lips can leave you with a patchy, unattractive finish. Use one of our sugar scrubs to gently buff away dead skin cell buildup on the surface of your lips, which can help provide a smoother lipstick application.
