Tough Stuff is described as "A no-nonsense scrub for rough areas such as hands, feet, elbows and knees." It was exactly what I needed. It claims to remove stubborn old tan, leave you skin silky smooth and prepare your skin for applying fresh tan. A good exfoliator is so important if you're a regular fake tanner. Dead skin cells and residue tan need to be removed to create a good base for fresh tan. Tough Stuff is a pink (what else?!) coloured runny scrub that can be really easily worked into either wet or dry skin. I took it into the shower and spent a good while scrubbing myself a new layer of skin. I loved that I could really feel the scrub getting to work- it's not called Tough Stuff for nothing! On that note a warning- it's definitely not suitable for your face, decollétage, tummy or any other area where the skin is delicate.
When I stepped out of the shower, my skin was pink (which is normal after using Tough Stuff) and felt really clean. I then slathered a really rich moisturiser all over- which is really important to do after exfolitating. So did it do what it said it would do? Definitely. My skin was silky smooth and it removed all residue of my fake tan. I haven't reapplied my tan yet -you should always wait a day after exfoliating to apply new tan- but my skin is super smooth and clean so I reckon it will go on really well next time. A sachet of Tough Stuff retails at €2.99 which I think is a bargain and I heard rumours that Tough Stuff may be making an appearance in a tube which would be amazing! This is definitely going to be my go-to scrub from now on. Can Cocoa Brown do any wrong? Not in my eyes!
