With all the pollution and sunlight I let my skin face everyday, I make sure I use products that are least harmful to my skin. And I believe that these products are those that are mostly natural/organic.
So for my current facial scrub, I bought one from a brand that is known to use no harmful chemicals - Human Nature!
Human Heart Nature 100% Natural Purifying Facial Scrub
A 50ml tube is worth Php105.00. I bought mine at Beauty Bar, Robinsons Magnolia.
It is very, very, very affordable! It's one of the reasons I love buying stuff from Human Nature, they don't hurt the wallet much. Haha!
So here some info from the back of the tube:
It's 100% Natural, and cruelty-free! No parabens and other toxic substances!
Product description from the website:
Exfoliate your skin the natural way with our 100% Natural Purifying Facial Scrub! Made with real strawberry seeds and fine bamboo granules to soften your skin while gently removing dirt and toxins, our facial scrub allows you to show off your healthy, smooth and luminous complexion without compromising your skin!
Did you know: Salicylic acid, one of the most common ingredients found in many chemical facial scrubs, is designed to fight acne and is also used as an exfoliant. According to cosmeticsdatabase.com, salicylic acid may have harmful effects on your brain,nervous and reproductive system and can act as a skin irritant and penetration enhancer allowing other harmful chemicals to penetrate deeper into the skin. Because of this, its use is restricted in Canadian and Japanese cosmetics. So why use it in yours?
Here's what the product looks like when squeezed out:
It's thick but not sticky and the beads for this scrub is actually strawberry seeds! Fascinating, right? It also has bamboo granules which are probably finer since I myself can't see it but you can actually feel it when you are using the product.
The scent is of raw strawberry. I would have preferred the scent of a strawberry milkshake though but the scent gives off the organic feel to it. Anyway, it still smells yummy!
I have been using this for 3 weeks now, thrice a week and I never experienced any drying on my skin. I never had breakouts of skin irritations as well. Whenever I use this, I really feel like my skin is oh so clean!
But would I buy again?
Honestly, I'm torn since I'm used to rougher but finer beads in my facial scrubs.
My face is acne prone so I get some blackheads and whiteheads here and there time to time and this doesn't help much in lessening/preventing them compared to some scrubs I have used before.
But all in all, I think this is a great facial scrub and would suit all skin types! I encourage people to try this out themselves. It's super affordable so why not? right?
