I both love and hate this scrub! I love it because it really makes my skin feel smooth and the ingredients are great. Talk about natural ingredients, this Nubian Heritage scrub in Raw Shea includes the following: soy milk, vitamin E, frankincense &myrrh (may contain-brown sugar, sea salt, honeysuckle cocoa butter aloe juice, lemongrass oil and a list of oils that continues down to the end of the ingredient list.) Not one harmful ingredients in sight, this is an all natural product with certified organic ingredients. And the scrub does work.
When I was buying this scrub a sale associate raved about this product, in fact she dragged me over to the counter and introduced me to the product (the Nubian Heritage counter wasn't even her section). She said " I love this scrub, but I let all of the oil run off before I use it."
This scrub has a layer of oils just hanging out on top of the scrub, I've seen this before in scrubs so it wasn't anything new to me.
I decided to keep the oil and scoop it up with the product as I scrubbed in the tub. The scrub leaves your skin oily, almost to the point where you don't need lotion after leaving the shower. This could be a good or bad thing depending on your personal taste. The only problem is that my skin does not respond well to too much oil so just below my collar bone I broke out. Nothing too terrible remained on my skin but it was a bit unsettling since I am a v neck shirt kind of gal. Anyway it quickly cleared up and I haven't used the scrub since, but I will use it again.
I think for my skin I just need to drain off the oil as the woman mentioned because it may be a little too much for me.
Although this product deserves a do over from me overall I like it and I would probably get it again....or just make my own version at home. :-)
This scrub is priced at $22.00. I found this company as Macys but you can show online through their website.
Take a look at the other scrubs available through NH.
Any certified organic products not work out for you? Have you ever tried anything from Nubian Heritage? Do you prefer scrubs with or without the oil?
