For the past few months I’ve been using this face scrub and this is one of those rare scrubs which I want to re-purchase. But, let me start from the beginning. Those who follow my blog probably know by now that I have combination skin but these past few years it has changed quite – my T zone is less oily and I have more problem with my skin getting drier and drier on cheeks for example. So, it’s really hard for me to find appropriate skin care. That’s why I’ve been using a regular moisturizer all over my face and serum for extra hydratation.
It’s been easier to pick a face scrub though sometimes not even that. I do have some demands which perhaps aren’t easy to stand up to so it’s hard to find one which would include all of them, but this one is pretty close. I do expect from a face scrub to do its job properly and to have effect on my skin, I don’t want some surface scrubing. I want to feel that my skin has been scrubed proprely, but not to rough and I don’t want my skin to be red all over. Okay, there is some redness with this one, but moderate redness is okay for me. This scrub has micro cells which are a bit harsh so I would not recommend this to someone with sensitive skin. On the photo above you can see how it actually looks like. I scrub my face for about 10 seconds, or so, I avoid eye area and definitely dedicate a bit more to my T zone. I use it once a week.
After I remove it I really feel like my skin is alive, if I can call it that way, and beside that it also feels soft and elastic. I apply my skin care routine as usual, especially now when I fell like my skin needs some extra care and to calm my redness too. The thing I really like about this scrub also is – the smell of it. This whole product line has an awesome smell which I love.
Since I’ve purchased it a few months ago I’m not sure about the price anymore, but I think it is approx. $6 for 150 ml. I recommend it to those with combination and oily skin. I think it will work for you.
Which face scrub do you use? Have you tried this face scrub or anything else from this product line?
