With Summers turning their temp’s up, it’s time for Skin Care upgrade & I thought I had update you with what’s revolving on my skincare shelf these days & that’s Oriflame’s Pure Skin Range! The one that I am talking about here is called the Pure Skin Scrub/Face Wash ~ I have also reviewed the face wash & the toner here so do check them out 🙂
Oriflame’s Pure Skin Scrub – Face Wash is essentially a gel based cleanser with minute ultra micro micro-beads that are pretty gentle on the skin. I like how they are effective in cleansing the skin without being really abrasive & it lathers pretty well too ~ It lathers instantly in a go & all I need is a pump for it to effectively cleanse my skin! Having said that, this is not a scrub gel for everyone because though this stuff is an effective cleanser, it is also sort of drying due to an ingredient called salicyclic acid. I have a combination skin which turns a bit oily during the hot summer months & on me, this works very well ~ It gets rid of all the dirt & oil build up in an instant & give my skin a super refreshed feel but there is no denying, it is also sort of drying! Not parching my skin out of moisture kind’s drying but drying enough for me to reach out to my moisturizer in the first 10 to 15 minutes of cleansing so I do feel that this is not the best pick for winters & if you have a dry to normal skin.
& Does it really help in controlling acne & reducing blackheads ~ Well, I had say it kinda does because what it does is it gets rid of all the issues that can cause acne & blackhead build up. It does not dry up any existing acne or zap up anything but it helps to effectively cleanse the skin which in turn reduces the possibility of acne issues & blackhead buildup.
Oriflame’s Pure Skin Scrub/Face Wash retails for around 500 bucks for 150 mL’s so it’s not exactly budgeted but it isn’t crazy expensive either & for the job it does, I think it gives value for the bucks! Also, I love that fresh beachy fragrance I get with every pump…Not exactly refreshing or rejuvenating like the oriflame love face washes are but still good I’d say!
Oriflame’s Pure Skin Scrub is the kind of scrub + face wash to adopt if you have an oily/combination skin & are looking for a cleanser that’s effective, gets rid of all the impurities, dirt build up & excess oil ~ This does gets dehydrating because it’s infused with salicyclic acid so it’s not the best bet for winters or if you have a dry to normal skin but I like how it cleanses the skin so I’d recommend it!
Price-Quantity: INR 499 for 150 mL
