My Experience with Simple Kind To Skin Smoothing Facial Scrub
I picked up this scrub during our Australia trip because I forgot to pack mine. And I could not do a 20 day trip without using a scrub. I had read Simple product reviews on IMBB so when I found it at a pharmacy there, I thought I’d give it a go. Plus all the claims about it being gentle on skin totally resonated well with my instincts.
Simple Scrub comes packed in this green squeeze tube. It has an attached cap to it that closes just fine. With all the travelling this tube has done, I have never had any issues with the spillages. Gets a big thumbs up from me there. It is a white coloured grainy scrub. The scrub has a thin cream like consistency and rice granules that are meant to be excellent at skin exfoliation. The granules are quite small and not very harsh on the skin. You have to apply it on damp skin and rub it in circular motions. The granules do a good job at regular day-to-day exfoliation but it is not a deep cleansing scrub.
I have a bit of issue with the fragrance. It smells like grass and I really don’t enjoy that. I also find that you have to be very thorough with it when you rinse off the scrub because most of the time I find that some of the granules are always left on the skin. And while I would be applying my moisturiser, they’d come in my way. I really don’t like that.
This scrub has never broken me out nor has it done any wonders to my skin. I just find it a decent exfoliating scrub to be used on a regular basis. Don’t expect much out of it except that it would get rid of your dead skin cells. Your skin would feel clean and softer after using this. It’s more like a maintenance scrub for your skin. I like that it can be used by all skin types and it would never aggravate your skin even if you have very sensitive skin. The granules are very gentle on the skin but are quite effective.
The ingredients list is not very impressive – the very second ingredient is mineral oil and I am not very comfortable with that. It has never caused any irritation to my skin but for review purposes, I thought i’d just state that.
Overall, Okay dokey. Would not repurchase.
