Welcome to a very special product review here on Createyou86. I only do product reviews on items that i honestly and truly feel will make a positive impact in your life. Disclaimer: I did not pay for this item. I received it free of charge to test and review from OZ Naturals as a part of a Brandbacker Campaign.
OZ Naturals Face Scrub Exfoliant utilizes bamboo to gently exfoliate skin and unclog pores without irritation, drying or stripping. What is so special about this scrub? This scrub contains lactic acid and Alpha Lipoic Acid to further help the exfoliation process by breaking down and removing dead skin cells, revealing the glow of healthy skin beneath, and assists in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
One of the major key players in this scrub is the green tea extract, which is rich in antioxidants and helps to prevent collagen breakdown as well as skin tone and protects the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals. The Pro Vitamin B5 in this specific scrub is readily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep down, retaining moisture and relieving dry, irritated skin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid provides anti-inflammatory effects reducing redness and blotchiness, shrinking pore size and imparting a healthy radiance to the skin. This product is safe for all skin types, our bamboo exfoliant is all natural and free of harmful ingredients. (Source: Brandbacker Campaign Information)
Now that you know a little bit about the product itself let me tell you what it did for me! I have VERY dry skin on my face, and my skin is very prone to being oily if the wrong product is used.. I don't normally use a moisturizer for this reason, so the product that i wash my face with or exfoliate with has to leave my face feeling smooth, but not oily. It took testing many products over the years to find the perfect product that would leave my face feeling smooth, but not oily, and not overly dry.
When i received this product i started using it immediately, and continued to use it for the next five days. I washed my face with just water, and used it as an exfoliant. The scrub is VERY coarse so if you aren't used to it (it is like sand in your hands). After you add the product to your face you are supposed to leave it on your face for about five minutes to let the active ingredients work. As it begins to dry, you can feel your face elasticize with it (get tighter). While drying the exfoliant (sandy scrub) turns white on your face allowing you to see which areas are being exfoliated. Personally i enjoy a pretty coarse exfoliant. After i washed the scrub off of my face as directed, OZ Naturals left my face feeling soft, and smooth. I normally exfoliate in the shower, but you can't take this product bottle in the shower because the moisture gets inside of it, and clumps up making it impossible to shake the scrub out of the "salt and pepper" style shaker that it comes in (at least that's my experience). I started using the product when i already had some blemishes on my face, and after using this product for five days those blemishes are pretty much gone.
I WILL continue to use this product here is why:
