While many swear by this exfoliating scrub, I'm not entirely impressed. I have acne prone and sensitive skin. I find this scrub a bit too harsh for my skin as the bead particles are well, rough. So I need to be extra gentle when massaging this product on my face. An alternative would be to dilute the product with water and scrub it between fingers to reduce the roughness. The skin does feel smoother after rinsing, but the effect is temporary for me. Lastly, I don't think it's a good idea to use this while the skin is breaking out.
This black sugar scrub smells delicious when you open it. I left it on my face for 15 minutes according to the instruction. My face did not feel itchy during 15 minutes and there was no allergic reaction after washing off. When I washed off my skin was instantly smooth and soft but it only last for few hours. It is not really a harsh scrub for sensitive skin but I didn't see any pores improvement after several times of usage as well as the skincare could penetrate better into my skin. Just an ordinary facial scrub for weekly exfoliation.
Never thought I would actually bought it but I did, from Hermo.
I've heard so many good reviews on this and decided I want to try it myself. I usually mixed it with my cleansing oil to scrub and clean at the same time. It cleans much better than using my cleansing oil alone and definitely scrubs better than the rice mask. It leaves my face smooth and clean afterwards.
It smells like lemon, I think? But it does not feel like a very natural smell. I used this only every three days to keep my skin clear and fresh. It did not cause me to break out but I suspect I should stop using it because the broken capillaries on my face are increasing. (Tip: do not use this if you have broken capillaries!)
I would recommend this if you are looking for a good cheap scrub. Although I do wish it could come with a spatula!
This product comes in a tub container. It holds such a gigantic amount that I can't finish it after 6 months. I try to exfoliate once or twice every week but yet, there is still half way to go even after 6 months.
Love the scent of this product so much. It's kind of like a citrusy smell with some ginger inside?! I don't know how to describe it. There are many large sugar particles inside the mask that act as physical exfoliator. Usually I scoop out the amount that I want with my dry hand. Then I will apply 5 patches of the mask on face. Afterwards only I wet my hand with some water and rub the sugar particles around my face. I will add more water whenever it is necessary. I just place the mask on my face for around 15 minutes or when it dries. Then I will wash off the mask with water.
I feel that my face is so smooth and soft after the exfoliation. I like how the mask works and it brightens my complexion after usage. It does not clear blackheads instantly, but with continuous usage of the mask over some time, the pores and blackhead gets smaller. I definitely will repurchase this product after it finishes, maybe some other flavour.
An exfoliating wash-off scrub-slash-mask that leaves skin clean and revitalized. It has this sugar bits that thoroughly sloughs off oil and grime from the skin, whilst its self-heating properties allow pores to open and allow the mask.
