SNOE Magic Apple Whitening S-rub (for the face and body)

"Our special Apple Whitening S-rub works like magic!"

Instructions (from the back of the tub):

Massage on dry skin. Apply particular attention to dry and flaky areas such as elbows, heels and knees. Then leave on for 5 minutes and rub till product is sloughed off from skin. Product will go from white to gray and even brown, depending on how much dead skin is removed. Skin becomes silky and lighter instantly! The best part is that there is no need to rinse. Use on the face and dark areas of your body. For maximum results, use twice a week. Alternate with Snoe White Beauty Bars. Use SPF 30 after treatment.

Comes in a tub of 100 grams


My take:

I got curious when I saw the Snoe Stall at Robinson's Galleria (Ground Floor) weeks ago. They offer different skin care products which they claim are natural and organic. "Natural and Organic", hmm.. (o_O) that immediately lit up my bulb so I gave in to check out what's in store.

Honestly, I ended up buying this because of the scent! It smells like fresh apples and it's just so hard to resist. I've been using this on my face once a week, as a facial scrub to exfoliate my skin. Though I haven't tried this as a body scrub as I use a different product for that matter.

At first, I was really hesitant as I have combination skin that is quite sensitive to harsh products, but being the scientist at heart, I was ready to experiment. Haha.. :)

And my experiment did't let me down. In fact, how I wish I can exfoliate my face everyday (I know that's a crime), just so I can use this often because this thing is starting up an addiction in me. But contrary to the instructions, I prefer to rinse this out after scrubbing.


PROS:

** has very fine micro scrubbing particles, making it suitable for facial use.
** has a minty feel, the kind that relaxes the senses.
** polishes the face, making it smooth giving your skin that healthy look.
** no irritations!

CONS:

** has a lingering apple scent (some might not like it, but for me, that thing got me sold).
** not a hundred % organic product as shown in the ingredients list.
** comes in a tub container, you will have to scoop this out with a small spoon.


I like and enjoy using this scrub that I will surely get another once this runs out. For a price of a little less than 200 (sorry, I can't remember the exact price), I'm getting more than what I paid for. This makes my weekly home facilitated facial something to look forward to every week end. :)

  1. Oh, this sounds and SMELLS very nice! It must be a locally available brand. Words like 'natural' and 'organic' tend to catch my eye too. :)
