Exfoliation is an important part of skin care for both the face and body. Face and body scrubs have been part of my skin care regimen ever since and I always make sure that I scrub them once or twice a week. Exfoliation helps in removing dead skin cells and make our creams, lotions, serums and other skin care products more effective because it will be absorbed more. I presume that many of us have tried St. Ives Apricot Scrub. I used it before but I find the scrub a bit harsh for my skin. If you're a long time reader of this blog prolly you know that my HG facial mask as of the moment is Purederm Dual-Well Being Pack. It's not a scrub but a peeling gel that comes with a face mask.
Since most of the skin care products that I use now contains natural ingredients, methinks it's time to look for a natural facial scrub that works! Good thing my sister won in a giveaway where she got a loot of Human Heart Nature skin products. She gave me this facial scrub weeks ago. So after two weeks of using this scrub (twice a week) here's my honest to goodness review. This product is a keeper and an addition to my growing organic skin care products as well.

What I like:
- It's organic!
- A little amount of product goes a long way.
- Comes in a convenient tube that's easy to use.
- The strawberry scent is addicting.
- Gentle yet effective in removing blackheads.
- Doesn't dry out my skin.
- My skin feels smooth and supple after use.
- No irritation, breakouts or whatsoever.
- No parabens, phthalates, SLS/SLES or other toxic substances.
- Manufacturing, batch and expiry date printed on the packaging.
What I don't like:
- Not readily available, I hope Human Heart Nature will bring it to leading department stores and groceries nationwide.
Will I repurchase? Yes, this product is back-up worthy.
I give this a 4.75/5 rating. As much as I wanted to give this product a perfect rating, methinks will just reserve it since this is my first organic facial scrub. I will not rave too much about it because I also want to give other organic face scrubs in the market a try. BUT this facial scrub performs well and stays true to it's promise! I also love that my face feels squeaky clean without the drying and tight feeling after using this scrub.
