Review: B. Refined Exfoliating Cleanser

Having finished my backup tube of Aapri Exfoliating Scrub Cream, I popped into Superdrug to pick up a replacement, and managed to leave without breaking my spending ban, which I was pretty proud of! I've not heard much about new skincare brand B.; I read a review of their Micellar Water on Amy's blog, but that's it, so I was intrigued to have a look at the stand and see if anything took my fancy. I really like how their range is split up based on age groups; I'm in Skin Phase 1, which is aimed at 20-30-year-olds and is meant to "help enhance skin's youthful appearance and protect against first signs of aging." There's a handy Diagnostic Tool on their website to help you choose the right Skin Phase for you, if you're not sure.
I picked up the B. Refined Exfoliating Cleanser, which was £5.49 for 125ml, a really good price... if it works! Having done a bit more reading since I purchased this product, I really like B.'s ethos, and find them appealing as a company. I'll definitely be interested to try some more of their products, which also include a make-up range I really like the look of. "We’re here to give every woman the knowledge and tools to feel her most beautiful every day. Our skincare and makeup is specially formulated to really work and is designed to be easy to use and understand. It’s our vision to be part of what makes you and your life beautiful.

I love the packaging of this product, which is sleek and white, with a flip cap which is easy to use with wet hands. This product claims to, "Gently polish the skin surface to reveal a smooth, bright complexion. Ideal for normal to oily skin. B. Refined is a creamy dual-action exfoliator that helps combat dull skin. Deep clean action - Salicylic Acid gently removes impurities and unblocks pores. Smooth skin - Microbeads buff away old skin cells and help refine the skin's surface. Dermatalogically approved. Massage gently into damp skin and then rinse with warm water. For best results, use B. Refined twice weekly before your favourite B. Day Cream."

This is a white cream with a very fine grainy texture; you can't really see in this photo, which should give you an idea of how fine we're talking! Despite this, my skin does look smooth and glowy after using, so I have to conclude that it works. Using it on dry skin gives a slightly scrubbier feeling, which I do occasionally just because I like the feeling; I do find myself using it most days, rather than the recommended twice a week, but I do have very oily skin which gets dull quite quickly. The product has a nice scent, it's not heavily fragranced but just a gentle, skincare-type smell which is pleasant when using. Overall, I enjoy using this Exfoliator and can see myself buying it again, as well as trying some other products from the range!

B. Refined Exfoliating Cleanser is available exclusively from Superdrug, priced at £5.49 for 125ml, along with the rest of the B. Skincare range.
Have you tried any of B.'s products? Will you be keeping an eye out for them now?
