In today’s post, I’ll be sharing my thoughts on the Eden Extra Whitening Apricot face and body scrub that I’ve been using and has a become a staple in my skin care routine.
The Eden face and body scrub has 2 types: the whitening/lightening one and the plain one. I’ll be reviewing the lightening one in this post.
Eden Extra Whitening Apricot Face & Body Scrub is a deep cleansing face and body scrub with natural sources of ingredient to quickly remove blackheads, impurities, unclog pores, dry, dead skin cells from the surface of your skin and reveal a smooth fresh layer. Eden Extra Whitening Apricot Face & Body Scrub contains natural Tamarind powder and Licorice extract to improve the skin whitening, leaving the skin soft and subtle. It is suitable for all skin types.
Directions for use:
Apply unto moist skin, face and body. Gently massage to remove blackheads and dead cells, especially more concentrate on dry skin areas such as elbows and knees. Rinse thoroughly with water. Avoid contact with eyes.
This scrub comes in a transparent container with the usual screw lid.
It has a beige/brown colour and feels like a lotion. Upon application, it dries as mud-coloured micropebbles on the skin.
I like that it isn’t too harsh on the skin, unlike some other scrubs I’ve used that are almost painful. It leaves my skin really soft after using it without drying it out.
I’ve been using it for some months and I can say it has no lightening/whitening effect..*lol*..it helps fade hyperpigmentation a little but I don’t think this scrub will not make you lighter.
I also noticed my skin absorbs other products faster after I’ve used this.
What I don’t like: It worsens my itching..(read more about this here). The itching is worse when freshly applied. It gets bearable after a while, but it’s still not pleasant.
Asides the itching, I like this scrub a lot. It makes my skin feel softer and look younger. I’d recommend to anyone wishing to try out an affordable scrub. It would be a good buy!
*Update: I am currently on the hunt for a good chemical exfoliant for the body. I have used the Eucerin Intensive Repair Cream(which contains AHA) but I’m looking forward to trying the Paula’s Choice Weightless Body Exfoliant.
