Hello everyone! I know I've been reviewing a lot of Human Heart Nature products lately. I've raved about their peppermint lip balm and their intensive hair mask. I've gotten hooked to their products because they're organic products that are very, very affordable. Human Heart Nature is one of the lowest priced brands of organic products in the market. So did I like this product, too? Keep reading and find out.
The appearance reminds me a lot of St. Ives Apricot Scrub. Since the beads are from black rice, some people might find that these beads are too harsh for the face, so scrub lightly. After I wash this off, my face doesn't feel squeaky clean like most products, instead it feels more moisturized similar to the feeling of washing off cleansing oil. This is because this scrub contains virgin coconut oil, sunflower oil and a little bit of ylang-ylang oil. Although the presence of these oils could cause breakouts for people with very oily skin (like myself), I haven't experienced any adverse reactions so far. However, don't take my word for it since I only use this once a week because I already use a chemical exfoliant everyday.
What I don't like about it? It's the smell. I've tried my friend's day moisturizer (also from Human Heart Nature) and the smell is similar to this. It smells like old beauty products :P
- Very affordable. I can't remember the exact price that I paid but it's definitely no more than P100 for 50 ml.
- It's organic so no harmful chemicals!
- Like all products with oils, it's not impossible to break out with this.
- I am not fond of the smell at all.
The verdict: I'm not sure if I will buy this again, because the smell bothers me. Nevertheless, this is still worth trying since I believe that scrubs need not be expensive since we just wash them off anyway :)
