Oriflame Renewing Hand Scrub
After I had a pleasant experience using the foot scrub from Oriflame, I was eyeing this hand scrub for long time & finally bought it this time to see how it works. This is the first hand scrub that I bought from the Oriflame range & here is my take on the scrub.
Some facts about Hand scrubs
There are different types of scrubs depending upon one’s skin type. The common factor in scrubs is they contain an agent to exfoliate the skin & get rid of dead cells. Scrubs can be soothing and provide skin with a soft, healthy glow, but overdoing scrubs can be harmful to new skin. Moderation is important when it comes to using scrubs, and advises once every two weeks is often enough to get good results, as more frequent scrubbing can irritate the skin.
What does Oriflame Claim about this scrub: Exfoliates and conditions hands with almond shell powder and sweet almond oil.

My Experience: The scrub comes in a brown colored tube with screw lid. The scrub smells somewhat like green sea weed which is manageable :-\ & has these small brown colored granules. I take a small amount of the scrub in my hand, add a few drops of water & gently glide the scrub from the fingers to the elbow & do light massage for a few minutes & then rinse it off. The scrub is effective in removing the dead cells & grime but leaves behind dryness & that’s the only thing that I don’t like about this scrub. Scrubs usually have an oil base which moisturises and soothes your skin as it is scrubbed. Though the company claims the product has sweet Almond oil, but I don’t see any nourishment, it just makes my hands dry after each scrub. So each time I scrub I make sure I moisturise my hands after the whole process. I’m more biased towards the foot scrub from the Oriflame range because I could see an instant change in the skin tone when I used the foot scrub whereas I don’t see the same effect with the hand scrub. Other than the drying part & no instant change in the skin tone, everything else about this scrub is good, it gently cleanses the skin to get rid of the dead skin & dirt.
