In my hurry to post about the MAC Family and Friends discount on Monday, I completely overlooked that this product was sold out online before I mentioned it. Might have been helpful for those shopping online, right? Sorry about that but today I’m mentioning it because you should still look for this in stores.
MAC Cosmetics Volvanic Ash Exfoliator is a scrub made with natural volcanic ash and sugar crystals from the islands of Vanuatu and can be used on the body as well as your face.
From the moment I opened up this jar, I was intrigued by what I saw inside. I won’t lie, it doesn’t look like something you’d want on your face… it’s dark and gritty but a little grit is good, right? At least it is for me. The granules in this product are a little more powerful than in MAC’s Microfine Refinisher (which is a definite plus for me) so there’s the potential to over-exfoliate skin but it’s easily diluted with a bit of water to something softer. They say it also foams but in all of the times I’ve used it so far, I’ve only seen light foaming once. Either way, this shouldn’t be a deterrent. This product does a good job and the pricing for this is great, you get quite a bit of product for your money here.
You can really go to town and exfoliate your skin with MAC Cosmetics Volvanic Ash Exfoliator but sadly, this product is limited edition so stock up while you can… I’m getting backups for sure.
