NU Skin Exfoliant Scrub and Toner Review

I live in a city where pollution is extremely high and the only way to battle it is proper cleansing. However, not all cleansers available in the market can assure a satisfying result.

We all know that our skin has pores that can be clogged by dirt, causing blackheads and pimples. Unclogging pores requires no ordinary cleansers, like the ones that have scrubs. Many people are skeptical with facial scrubs for fear of scratches on the face or any other skin damages. That’s understandable because facial skin is very sensitive and scrubs can indeed harm our skin, depending on their kind.

More than a couple of weeks ago, my friend asked me to try his company’s cleanser products, NU Skin. Without hesitation, I agreed since my skin is not as sensitive as others; besides, it says EXTRA GENTLE.

NU Skin Facial Scrub
Instructions and information

It says on the label that the product should be used twice a week, but according to my friend, three times a week during your first two weeks of use is recommended.

The cleanser contains barely visible, minuscule beads, called marine diatoms, which are proven safe for the skin unlike other cleansers that have pollen-like ones. After washing, you’ll feel more refreshed mainly because of the menthol-ly stuff infused in it.

AFTER IMAGE

The skin will feel slightly tight because of the removal of the dead skin cells.

NU Skin Mattefying Toner

It is essential to use a toner right after washing. It helps remove excess dirt.

One thing that scares me about toners is that some are really harsh to the skin. If you’re not careful when choosing and using a toner, it can leave burning sensations and red patches, BUT not this one. It’s very mild and it can thoroughly remove traces of dirt.

AFTER TONING

Toner chemicals often leave the skin very dry, probably due to its intensive cleansing and skin refinement properties, so moisturizing is necessary after. NU Skin’s toner, however, will leave your skin moisturized and damage-free. Credit that to its pH-balancing and mattefying capabilities.

NU Skin is a foreign product, so it’s not yet available in Philippine stores. But if you’d like to try it and enjoy beautiful skin, you may order from Resty thru restynuegas@gmail.com or contact him at these numbers:

REVIEW: Pond’s Pure White with Activated Carbon

When I first saw this on TV, I snorted. I thought, wow, another marketing ploy to attract consumers. Activated carbon, really? I never knew much about chemistry, but I found it ridiculous splashing carbon all over your face. Yeah, that was exaggerated. Needless to say, I wasn’t excited to try it.

When the product was launched, free sachets were given out to MRT stations. This one lady was in a real hurry so she gave me tons of samples. And it so happened I had no more facial wash at home. Great, so I guess I have no choice but to try them then. Being a cautious consumer, I read the labels first.

CLAIMS:

  • Lifts away impurities
  • Helps cleanse face thoroughly
  • Reveals natural pure white skin

THE REAL SCORE:

All three claims are true. It does cleanse really well, I’ve been using it for over a month already. My skin has become noticeably clearer and fairer, too. The only problem is, and this is usually true for all Pond’s products (according to my experience at least), that though it cleanses thoroughly, facial skin tends to become dry in which one needs the use of a moisturizer after.

I am not allergic to any product (that’s a yay for me!), so I cannot assure that Pond’s Pure White with Activated Carbon is safe for everyone’s skin. Overall, the product is excellent. My friend and I actually buy bigger containers now. I recommended it to a neighbor, and she loved the results. 🙂
