It’s been awhile since I’ve posted a new skincare review, but the time has come, and I’ve got a great facial scrub for you today.
I’ve always had mixed feelings about facial scrubs. Kind of like the feeling you get about Q-tips; you know they’re bad for you, but wow do they create an unbelievable feeling. I know scrubs scrape away dead skin that will leave you “glowing,” but I also know they can be drying. Where’s the happy medium?
My mind was changed when I tried the Ole Henriksen Transforming Walnut Scrub.
Let me tell you that I am now a firm believer in the power of a good scrub. I reached out to an esthetician in my family with two problems I wanted to solve: dry patches and clogged pores. That’s when she highly recommend this Walnut Scrub for both flaky skin and blackheads and/or clogged pores. It has been a complete game changer.
If you’ve read my past skincare routine, you know I’ve loved Ole Henriksen for awhile now. Their products are clean, vegan, and actually work, so I knew I would love this scrub too. It contains walnut powder to exfoliate and ginseng and chamomile extract to purify and revive dull looking skin.
The walnut powder gives it a creamy texture without taking away the right amount of grit in the exfoliation beads. And the ginseng and chamomile add just enough fresh scent without smelling overpowering. It’s a perfect balance of a product that works well and is enjoyable to use. After just a few washes in the shower I noticed a significant change to the look of my skin. The dry patches cleared up, my skin looked brighter overall, and my pores got smaller. The pores on my nose have always been a challenge (as I’m sure we all struggle to fix), but they get especially bad in the winter with caked on moisturizer and foundation. It was refreshing to see an actual difference after using this product.
At $28 the Transforming Walnut Scrub packs the punch of a much more expensive skincare product. I will continue to purchase this product because its provides immediate results and gives me more confidence to go makeup-free. I’m not just saying all of this. If you’re looking for a product to give you that natural glow each morning, grab this for your routine.
