TIA'M Anti-Pollution Salt Facial Scrub Salt Scrub [Jolse]

TIA’M — Anti-Pollution Salt Facial Scrub [Jolse]

Recently, I’ve been feeling that my chemical exfoliant, COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, isn’t playing especially well with my skin, and I’ve been looking to change products. I have a couple more chemical exfoliants sitting in my skincare queue, but I have also considered trying out more physical exfoliation. I haven’t really used much physical exfoliation since learning about the environmental damage of plastic microbeads, which ruled out my former favorite facial scrub by La Roche-Posay.

It was just my luck that I was chosen by Jolse, a favorite online Korean beauty retailer, to review a new facial scrub.

TIA’M is supposed to be a sister brand of COSRX, though I can’t find any official detail on this online apart from info on other blogs. The brand was previously known as O.S.T., and their most famous product was their Vitamin C serum (it’s now known as My Signature C Source, and I have that waiting in my fridge!). But before I try that serum, I have TIA’M’s new facial scrub to try.

It’s called TIA’M Anti-Pollution Salt Facial Scrub, and it comes in an 80 mL tub for about US$15 shipped (at Jolse).

Crawford Street — Grapefruit Mint Salt Scrub Review

I came across Toronto-based natural bath & body brand Crawford Street while browsing the sales at Well.ca (referral link) a couple of weeks ago, and since I was on the market for a new body scrub, and I’m a sucker for most anything citrus-scented/flavored, I bought the Grapefruit Mint Salt Scrub.

The instructions for the salt scrub are as follows (from Crawford Street):

We found the best way to use this scrub is to draw a bath. Hop in and wet your body. Stand up in the bath and use your salt scrub. Start at the feet and work up to get a stimulating circulation and lymphatic treatment. Avoid face, neck and chest. Let the scrub fall into the bath. Soak for 10 to 15 minutes.
