I have a weak spot for products that have some organic elements. While it is best to use all natural products, my laziness does get in the way and I resort to the next best thing – using products infused with great organic ingredients. On one such random shopping trip I picked Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub. Read more to find out how it fared.
The product claims to “Slough away dull, flakey, rough, dead surface cells to uncover skin that is soft, smooth and vibrant. Fruit enzymes, finely ground walnut shell and soothing, calming botanical extracts create a gentle but effective exfoliation that won’t burn or irritate skin.”
My Experience with Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub
Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub is a pale brownish semi liquid with brown scrub particles in it. It has a fragrance that I would describe as weird. Weird mostly because I am not able to pin point the smell. The fragrance isn’t mild neither is it strong. I have used this scrub on my face a few times and my skin didn’t like it. For starters it feels a little too harsh for the face, and while it left my face feeling softer and brighter, it made me break out a bit. I stopped using the scrub for a few days and tried again later. The same thing persisted, my skin felt nice immediately, but soon after I had another set of breakouts. I stopped using the scrub on my face.
While this scrub failed to work on my face, it worked amazingly on my body. It is indeed a great body scrub. I felt it exfoliating away my dry bits. My skin felt soft, smoother and had a healthy glow. What I wasn’t so comfortable with this scrub was the texture. It is quite runny and you may end up with more quantity in your hands than you intended to.
You can get Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub on Amazon, but the price is way too high. Avalon Organic products are also available on iherb.com – the products may take a little longer to reach you, but they are a more affordable option. Overall, if you have sensitive or oily skin I would suggest avoiding using this on your face. However, this is a decent body scrub.
