SAM_2380First off, I heard so many good things about this face scrub/mask, and since I love a good exfoliator I just had to have it.

Details & How to Use
Enriched with vitamins and minerals, this face scrub effectively exfoliates that prevents makeup application, while revitalizing skin. To use, apply desired amount onto face after washing, avoiding eye and mouth areas. Mix with water or toner to reduce skin irritation, and massage. wait 10 to 15 minutes, and then wash off with warm water. It contains 100g of product.

The container was surprisingly much larger than I expected. The container itself is made out of plastic and has a plastic screw-on lid which can be closed securely. When opening the lid there was also another thin plastic lid covering the product.

Texture & Scent
The texture is a very thick and gritty paste. You could compare it to a lot of sugar mixed with a tiny bit of vaseline. It has a very pleasant scent of lemon.


When I first tried this scrub I was actually terrified because it felt so harsh on my skin. You really have to make sure to mix it with a proper amount of water and massage it on your face very gently to prevent eventual skin damage. The first seconds into massaging it onto your face almost feels like rubbing your face on asphalt, but after a few seconds, when mixed with water the robust sugar parts will start to dissolve and the whole procedure will feel much more pleasant. It also stays well on the skin when leaving the mask to set for 10-15 minutes. It doesn't dry up and is easily washed off without leaving any residue.

Result & Conclusion
I was surprised how effective this scrub was! My skin felt and looked so clean after using it. Despite the slight discomfort when first starting to massage this paste onto my face, this is honestly the best exfoliating scrub/mask I have ever tried. My pores were noticeably cleaner after using it for the very first time. This is definitely not suitable for those with sensitive skin, and even if you have normal/oily skin, I recommend you to use it no more than once a week (less is more when it comes to exfoliation and face masks). However, this is an amazing scrub/mask in general and is perfect for those who want to get rid of blackheads and dead skin cells.
