I’ve gone and fallen in love with the Lather Sweet Almond Exfoliating Creme. Lather is a new-to-me brand but I can see why makeup artists love them.
Lather is cruelty free and they are a member of PETA.

Lather products are made from high quality ingredients and don’t contain synthetic fragrances or colors. They last for 6 months to 1 year once you open them. I was happy to hear that Lather is an environmentally friendly company. They’ve started transitioning their packaging to plastic made with EcoPure, which is an FDA compliant organic compound mixed with plastic. EcoPure helps to accelerate biodegradation in an environment like a landfill.
I love that this is a creme-based exfoliant. The exfoliants in this product are teeny tiny grains that gently but effectively buff away the dead skin cells on my face to reveal smooth skin. It claims to be gentle enough for sensitive skin, and my face agrees. Because of the thick creamy texture, it leaves my skin feeling a little moisturized afterwards, but make sure you rinse well.
It has a very faint hint of sweetness, possibly almond, but I can barely smell anything, probably because of my allergies.
One thing I’d like to point out is that this scrub contains jojoba beads. Jojoba beads are made from a biodegradable natural wax and they exfoliate gently like microbeads, but they’re a non-abrasive exfoliant. However, unlike microbeads, they’re better for the environment and less likely to cause pollution. So if you’re looking to replace your favorite scrub with microbeads this might be a great alternative for you!
