Today I am reviewing the Aroma Magic Mineral Glow Scrub. I just picked this up randomly a few months back when I went shopping. Honestly speaking I wasn’t really keen on trying this but then the SA kind off brain washed me (:P) into getting this along with the bamboo charcoal face pack I had picked up. Here is my take on the product.
Reduces fine lines, remineralizes & brightens.
I am 100% free of harsh chemicals, alcohol, parabens, phthalates, sulphates, artificial colouring & fragrance. My triple action scrub formula made of natural exfoliators of cornflower and grain almond meal gently buffs away dry skin and dead cells resulting in fresh, young, energised and healthy skin. Rice bran oil and aqua minerals remineralise and enrich your skin reducing fine lines effectively. My aromatherapy blend of tea tree, rose and lavender essential oils helps to balance the level of oil in your skin and protects it from daily pollution and dirt. The goodness of moisturising agents like beeswax and glycerin keeps your skin smooth, radiant and nourished.
Price 160 INR for 100 ml
Aqua, Cera Alba, Aqua Mineral, Centaurea Cyanus Extract, Oryza Sativa Bran oil,Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Meal, Vegetable Glycerin, Lavandula Angustifolia Essential Oil, Melaleuca Alternifolia Essential oil, Rosa Centifolia Essential Oil, Food Grade Color.
Directions For Use
Apply scrub on your face, neck and body. Massage gently with wet fingers and rinse off. For best results, leave it on for 10 minutes before rinsing. Pat your skin dry with a soft towel and continue with the rest of your skin care routine. Use once a week.
What I think
Aroma Magic has undergone quite a few makeovers in their looks aspect and by far this is the most appealing of all. I absolutely love the colorful flower prints on a white backdrop. The mineral glow scrub comes in a sturdy squeeze tube packaging with a screw on cap. The cap closes tightly making it leak proof and perfect for travel.
It has a creamy base with huge amount of colorless micro granules. On my skin, the granules are neither too mild nor too abrasive but may prove little harsh for those with sensitive skin. It all depends on the abrasion threshold of your skin. Personally I like scrubs with granules that feel slightly rubbery. The granules here are kind of coarse and if not careful you can end up causing capillary tear offs. The product is pale green in color. Its sulphate free and does prove that fact as it doesn’t foam up at all. The scrub is creamy enough to add some softness to the skin.
Now this might sound crazy but I haven’t figured out what this scrub smells like – I sometimes relate the fragrance to be mild lavender like and sometimes it smells medicinal**. Go figure :X
The scrub adds a soft glow to the face and provides adequate exfoliation when used carefully. However once the scrub is washed off, it leaves an oily film behind which is a downer. So you would definitely need to follow up with a face wash to get rid of the oiliness. If we overlook the greasy residue which can be gotten rid of, I reckon this product suitable for all skin types except those with sensitive skin. It makes the skin clean by removing all the dead skin and dirt off. I can’t give an opinion on the fine lines reducing claim as I don’t have any visible fine lines on my face. When it comes to ingredients, I am not much of stickler. For those of you who are, you will find this scrub appealing for its 100% chemical free formulation.
To sum it up, the Aroma Magic Mineral Glow Scrub is an affordable buy that will suit majority of the skin types. With caution, the granules provide exfoliation and the cream base adds sufficient softness. Even though it leaves an oily film behind, using a mild face wash will work in its favour.
- Fuss free packaging
- Adequately exfoliates
- Imparts soft glow
- Removes dirt and grime
- Chemical free formula
- Might be too abrasive
- Not suitable for those with sensitive skin
- Leaves an oily film behind post wash
- Medicinal fragrance might be off putting**
This is a passable affordable scrub that will suit most of the skin types. Personally I prefer scrubs with much softer granules and which foams enough giving that squeaky clean finish. If you are like me, then skip this! For those on the lookout for an inexpensive on par exfoliating scrub, do give this a try. You might just like it.
Let me know if you guys have used this scrub. Which one are you using right now?
I used it once and found to be decent. I had bought their coffee scrub but it was too heavy for me
