Let’s take a look at a scrub that I have grown to really like lately. I am quite picky with my scrubs. For my particular skin type I like a gritty textured product that feels like it is sloughing off everything I need efficiently. This scrub is made by Clayton Shagal. It is called Bamboo & Honey Exfoliant. It is meant for people with normal to dry skin, mature skin, or dehydrated skin. The grits in this product are made up of crystalized bamboo extract, which I find to be quite cool, so it’s still aggressive enough yet doesn’t scratch the skin. You don’t need very much of this scrub. If you take a little bit of it and rub it in between two fingers you can feel how gritty the texture is which I LOVE! One tube lasts quite some time- I have had mine for almost 3 months now and it gets utilized 2 times a week. I usually apply a dime sized amount with gentle circle motions all over then leave on for about 2-3 minutes (depending on if I’m in a hurry). Then with wet hands I use circle motions again to kind of get a gritty lather going- then rinse off! My skin is always left feeling silky and has a hydrated feel to it. Perfect now that we are going into the dry winter months.
The main ingredients in this are; Bamboo Stem Extract, which acts as a natural skin exfoliator. Then there’s honey Extract. Honey is an excellent moisturizer with humectant properties that retain moisture. Another amazing ingredient that I like to see in good skin care products is Sweet Almond Oil. This of course is a great moisturizer as well and is a natural emollient that helps in softening the skin.
I wouldn’t recommend this one for people who have a lot of acne breakouts. People with combination skin I would say it is safe for (like mine).
