Skin79 Sweet Honey Sugar Scrub- A Requested Review

I have decided to step up and dish my reviews on the requests of you fab readers. This 1st one was requested by “N”. I hope that you find it useful!

I bought this on Gmarket a while ago. The reason I bought it was that I had finished my Missha Cocoa scrub and seeing how it is a challenge and a half to get hold of, I thought it prudent to try something new.

The prime focus of this scrub is to target blackheads and to shrink enlarged pores.

First impression:

Boring plastic packaging! Yawn! Then the smell hit me….it smells like porridge oats with honey. I despise sickly sweet smelling things. I know I used a chocolate scrub before….but I ALWAYS, ALYWAYS wash it off with a fragrance free cleanser else the smell will drive me to distraction.

My Thoughts after about 8 weeks use:

WTF was Skin79 thinking? This is a seriously rough and chunky scrub! Then add to that an oil slick and I pretty much have a tub of stuff that I would not want to put on my face. Ok to be fair, the sugar granules do melt down, but not nearly as fast as I would like them to. In fact I would go as far as saying I think it is much better suited for use on your body.

I saw nil in the form of skin rejuvenation. No difference to my black heads. Pores did not shrink.

I do not like this packaging!!! It can be really messy using this scrub in the first place so I tend to use it in the shower. Yes, I know what you are thinking! This is shower Unfriendly. I do solemnly declare that all scrubs should be packaged in a tube!!

What is good about this?

It’s excellent for my feet and legs! I still wash off the greasy remnants with soap but it does work wonders on my heels and knees, buffs them up to a nice soft finish. I am glad that this is not going to waste!

Needless to say I will never purchase another .

I have however started using something so much better…….
