Aroma Magic Mineral Glow Scrub - Review

What it claims: This face and body scrub takes away layers of dulling cells and black heads.Cleans pores and makes skin look fresh and glowing. The skin appears lighter, smoother and looks healthier.Also removes fine lines and wrinkles.It increases blood circulation.Helps to regenerate new cells.

Directions: Apply onto face and body After 10 minutes, massage and wipe off . Rinse off.

Ingredients: Corn, Almond, Beta Hydroxy Acids, Citrus extracts, trace elements of Zinc, Calcium & pure essential oils of Tea Tree, Rosemary, Thyme & Lavender.

Price: Rs. 80 for 60 gm tube

Pros:
1. This is by far the most gentle exfoliating scrub I have used till date. The exfoliant in this is a salt, it is very fine and granulated. Kind of like how a home made salt scrub would feel on the skin.
2. It leaves my skin baby soft. I was totally not expecting this. My skin is so soft after use, I can't stop touching it
3. Does not dry out the skin at all.
4. It seems to have helped cleanse my pores out. My skin is not feeling so dry these days and in fact since I began using this, I feel like my skin has normalised in terms of oil production
5. There are no instructions on how often we can use this. I use this every morning, in place of face wash and have not had any problems.
6. The price: good 60 grm sturdy tube for 80 bucks (I actually got this for Rs. 66 from Beauty Centre coz of the discount running there)
7. The packaging: No dipping fingers in tubs. A nifty squeeze tube that is easy to use.

Cons
1. The color, the smell, all remind me of my old chemistry lab from college. The color is a light green, very similar to the zinc salts I would be handed out for testing, and the upper notes do have a slight lemony scent, but that soon goes away to leave behind a lingering zinc-y smell. It is not offensive, but it is not the best smell either to linger on your face

Will I repurchase: The smell, not withstanding, yes I will. I don't have that sensitive a nose and for the amazingly soft baby skin I am willing to indulge in a little nostalgia from my BSc days. This is an amazing, extremely gentle scrub and I love the way my skin feels post this.

PS: They claim you can also use this for the body. I haven't done that, too madly in love with my TBS Bath Gloves & St Ives Vanilla wash. So Won't be able to comment on how it fairs for body skin.
