Today, I am reviewing Victoria’s Secret Acai Smoothing Scrub Wash with Cotton Moisture Complex. The Black Friday deals here in Florida had me hoarding a number of Victoria Secret products and their “Acai” range of beauty products have been my most favourite. Acai fruit berries are known for their skin protecting antioxidant properties, reputed to be more effective than other berries like strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, blackberries or blueberries. This smoothing scrub wash combines the goodness of Acai with natural cotton moisture complex and is infused with mild polishing beads for exfoliation. Cotton Moisture Complex is claimed to be an all-natural formula which includes cottonseed extract, nourishing white tea and vitamins A, C and E.
Exfoliate. Cleanse. Buff your way flawless, every day. Reveals gorgeous soft skin and an all-over glow.
- Exclusive Cotton Moisture Complex.
- Antioxidant Acai.
- Polishing beads for gentle exfoliation.
- International patent-pending technology.
$18 for 236 ml/8 fl oz.
Ingredients are listed clearly on the tube. This product is paraben free.
Packaging: This scrub wash comes in a tight non-messy flip-open tube packaging. It is doesn’t leak, so the tube is travel friendly.
My Experience with Victoria’s Secret Acai Smoothing Scrub Wash:
I have combination skin and my T-zone gets really dry and flaky, more so in winters. This gentle exfoliating scrub works great for me. It moisturizes my skin and the mild polishing beads leave my skin clean, smooth and polished without excessively drying it out. I could see the dry flakes around my T-zone disappearing and could feel a temporary glow with every wash. After 4 washes, I had zero dry flakes and a much softer skin!!
The polishing beads in this scrub are round, evenly distributed, and not at all abrasive which makes it a face scrub-cum-face wash. It can also be used by people who have acne issues since the beads are not at all harsh.
The consistency of the scrub is gel-like with the polishing beads clearly visible and it lathers well when messaged over the face. It takes only a pea-sized amount to scrub wash my face and so one tube surely is gonna go a long way!
Did I tell you that the scrub smells amazing! The two factors that made me grab this product at the store were the “paraben-free” claim and the amazing fragrance. I don’t like overpowering, strong fruity scents, but this one smells divine!! It has a citrus-fruity smell which gives you an instant fresh feeling and I love the way the scent mildly lingers on the skin after the wash. Among all the face washes/scrubs I have used up until now, this one smells the best!
