Egyptian Geranium Facial Scrub by Pangea OrganicsI was so excited when I found this in my mail box! I love trying new things out. I am able to try this sample out thanks to Swaggable. I was a little dispointed in the size that I got ( just a small sample size) It's hard for me to review something on such a small amount that is supposed to be used on a daily baises. But here is what I think about it:
Being that I am a mother of 3 kids, 30 years old and my skin is starting to take "that turn" UGH I at this point honestly am just about willing to try anything! HAHAH!
The smell of this face wash was nice, not to over powering and not so little that it just smelt like mud. I normally have a 3-4 step process that I do every night ( or try to do every night) with Olay face wash.
I like the feel of this scub, it wasn't to much for my skin, I have very sentive skin and a lot of times things make it worse more so then ever making it better. This face wash didnt dry my skin out or make it patchy looking. After reading it and following what it said to do, it left my face feeling smooth, clean, and soft. I didnt have super tight feeling skin after, which for me is a big plus.
I learned a while ago that tight skin feeling on your face is a bad thing- it means all the good 'suff' for your skin has been stripped out along with all the bad. It can then make your face over-produce oils and such in order to try to rebalance it's self back out. If your anything like me, your skin will then break out like your in High School all over again! Not something that I as a 30 year old want to go though! Over all this facial scrub did just as it promised, it scrubbed all the days gunk and ick away, all the while leaving my face smooth, soft, and clean feeling.
If this was a face scrub that if could find in a 'regular' store ( target, walmart etc... ) I would consider buying it for not just me but also for my 11 year old.
I do feel like if you used this for daily use or even a once/ twice a week extra scrub that it would help and maybe even work wonders on your skin depending on how 'bad' your skin is to start with.
Here is the info that I recived along with the sample:
Fresh face. This dual-action scrub polishes the skin's surface without disrupting its delicate balance. Never harsh, drying or stripping, this Scrub is gentle enough for daily use. Enzymatic exfoliants work to dissolve expired skin cells while mechanical exfoliants gently free them up to be rinsed away. Raw, ground-up adzuki bean has been used in skin preparations for centuries in Japan. It provides gentle, manual exfoliation while its astringent properties help clarify and tighten pores. Both cranberry seed and geranium oil offer skin-brightening attributes, which assist with reducing hyper-pigmentation (dark spots due to sun exposure and past acne breakouts). The ingredients in this Scrub nourish the skin with antioxidants that scavenge free-radicals and optimize cellular function, resulting in more radiant skin and increased cell turnover.
Hope this review was helpful!
