What the product claims:

Enriched with excellend exfoliant ingredients and powerful microbeads – it roots out blackheads.

It also helps peel off imperfection marks.

The way I see it:

As mentioned earlier, I started noticing blackheads on and around my nose area. Its summer and could make out why.

The texture is creamy and the scrub has beautiful blue granules in a semi-transparent base.

Plus the menthol and its fragrance just adds to the indulgence in this hot climate. I totally love the fragrance and the cooling effect it imparts on the skin.

The granules are of blue color and are just perfect for scrubbing. They are not harsh or too soft to work. It lathers very mildly.

You know what – I could find my blackheads visibly reduced from the first wash! I am sure on continuous use I am sure it will help in controlling blackheads & whiteheads too.

Well it didn’t do anything to a couple of blemishes I have on the face – and I wasn’t expecting too!

This one works for me and I am in love with it! 🙂

The ‘Yes’ factors:

  • Easily available
  • Decent pricing
  • Cool menthol for the summers
  • Granules are not harsh
  • Works on blackheads!!
  • No parabens

The ‘Nay’ factors:

  • A big list of chemical ingredients including SLES
  • Didn’t work on the blemishes as claimed

HnB rating: 4/5 (Would have given whole 5 but for the ingredients)

Repurchase? Sure – atleast during the summers
Recommend? Yuppa! 🙂
