Eslor: The Art of Beauty Skin Care, Replenishing Scrub

DSCN3198

So the year is refreshed, started anew, full of promise and fresh looks. Speaking of fresh looks, isn’t it time to replenish your face too? Enter Eslor, stage left.

I’ve covered a couple of their products recently, and there’s plenty more coming, but today it all about Eslor’s Replenishing Scrub.

You’ll remember Eslor and their HTP System, using natural plant extracts and vitamins. They eschew the toxic chemicals prevalent to many products designed to improve our skin’s health. The Replenishing Scrub is no different. Simple ingredients like aloe vera, whole wheat flour, almond meal, corn meal, oatmeal, and honey. Wow. It’s almost good enough to eat! (Please, for the love of Pete, don’t eat it) It’s effective, my face felt fresh and renewed, and my skin had a healthy glow. I liked that I didn’t have to worry about this chemical interacting with that chemical. I only wish my makeup was this hassle free.

However, as fantastic as this product is, as much as I love this scrub, I’m hesitant to give it an unfettered “would-buy” rating. Not because I’m not in love with it, but because it’s pricey. Very much so. And again, while it works, works very well in fact, it doesn’t do anything a less expensive scrub could do almost as well. It becomes a game of inches: How much more would you pay for incremental gains?

Ingredient list as listed on the site:

Active Ingredients Almond Paste, Honey, Apricot Kernel Powder, and Peach Kernel Powder.

100% Free of Parabens, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) and Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES).

Price Point: For a 1.7 fluid ounce container, the cost is $28.00 and this why I felt that the product is great but for the price point you can find a lower cost product, which would deliver the same results.

Lastly, let me just say as someone who is very sensitive to fragrances and perfumes, this one has both in spades. While it didn’t irritate me per se, I can see that it might over time. So this one, while great in the results department, has some drawbacks that left me wanting. Let’s see if Eslor has a return to it’s heretofore flawless performance in it’s next product, it’s Comforting Mask.

Pangea Organics Facial Scrub, Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean & Cranberry

Pangea Organics Facial Scrub from Swaggable

Another product to try and this one is not your typical run of the mill facial scrubs. It is called Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean and Cranberry. I am unsure if I want to wash my face with it or use it as a dip! I like that the product is for all skin types and it does the job of three by exfoliating, clarifying and cleansing. The product is rich in antioxidants from the Cranberry, which aids in brightening of the skin. This is classified as an Organic product and it was very simple to use.

You use a quarter sized amount, rub palms together and gently apply (massaging) to your face, neck and decollete. You then just rinse and you are instructed to use it once daily or weekly.

The product felt very gentle on my face, almost like a very light lotion. The facial scrub also left my hands nice and soft. It can be said it is nutrient-rich, because my hands remained in the same state even after washing them through out the day, so I saw an improvement there. My face and neck were also baby soft and I found that I did not get greasy after a few hours from using.  Sometimes my pores can go crazy and overproduce oils when I use a scrub. I actually kept feeling my cheeks because the softness felt pleasant. I did not get any blemishes or irritations from the product and I find it hard to still get a clean feeling without over stripping my poor face. This scrub gave me the advantage of getting both. Now when it comes to long term use, I unfortunately did not receive a sufficient amount of product to even know if in a week there would be build up or not, so I can’t comment on that aspect.
