Good but at what Environmental Cost?
on 27 October 2015
I have used Scrubs from many different manufacturers. My favourite scrub is the one in the Lab Series range, which contains a very high proportion of the microbeads in a rich lathering gel. Many of the lower priced scrubs have been very disappointing, they either contain very few beads or the cream they use, dries out my face. I use the scrub before shaving to soften the stubble. This reduces drag and potential razer burn, as I have sensitive skin. Whilst this product is not up to the quality standards of Lab Series, it is still pretty good for the price. My major concern is that the beads in many of the scrubs tend to be apricot husk, whereas this product states they are made from polyethylene. This cannot be good for the environment. I would prefer to see a product without such material in it. So does this product work? Yes it does soften the stubble, it does reduce razer burn and it does remove dead skin cells. There is no dryness or tightness of the skin after using it.
So overall this is pretty abrasive, but not as much as the higher end products. It works, but I do not like the fact that it uses polyethylene. Other than this concern, I am happy to recommend the product.
