MAC Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator


I picked up MAC’s Mineralize Volcanic Ash Exfoliator months back, when it was first made permanent, after reading about it on a couple of beauty blogs. Although it can be used for face and body, I bought it with the intention that it would be great for any dry patches on my face.


After using it for a while, I have come to the conclusion that I don’t like it as a face exfoliator, but I prefer it for my body; it feels like brand new skin. This scrub is not moisturizing (so you will still need to apply body lotion after your shower), but it really pulls off all of the dead skin, leaving my body feeling incredibly soft.

There have been a few complaints about the smell, but I actually love the scent. The only way I can describe it is “gender neutral.” It’s definitely not floral or fruity.

Availability: MAC Cosmetics, $28

    Ohh this looks really interesting :o Will definitely have to give it a go! Although my favourite body scrub is a DIY coffee one, so I don’t know if I will convince myself to spend on a MAC one!
