ASAP are an Australian made and owned skincare brand that offer products that are suitable for all skin types, including acne prone, environmentally damaged & pigmented skin and are simple, effective and affordable. Also, they do not test on animals. Sound good? I thought so too. I was sent the ASAP Clearskin Pack for review, which includes the Daily Facial Cleanser, the Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub and the Clearskin Gel. I wanted to share my thoughts on the exfoliating scrub first, as it’s my favourite product of the 3 I’ve been using. The daily exfoliating scrub claims to be gentle enough to use on skin daily, but if you have super sensitive skin I would probably avoid using it that frequently, as it did slightly irritate my skin on daily use. The exfoliating scrub contains AHAs but there are also little beads in the product that you can feel manually scrubbing away at your skin – which I personally quite like. It makes me feel like the product is really working. The smell of the scrub isn’t that pleasant, it’s a slightly chemical smell – but it’s not unbearable. Overall I liked the ASAP Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub because of how soft & smooth it made my skin feel, and the fact that I really am growing to appreciate the ASAP brand and their ethos. The Daily Exfoliating Facial Scrub retails for $44 AUD for 240ml and you can search for a nearby stockist at the ASAP website. (note: I was sent this product for consideration for review.)
