Hands up if you like Battenberg? Because this product smells soooooooo good and reminded me of Battenberg as soon as I opened the seal!
The Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub is the most luxurious feeling scrub I have ever used. I know you can get a decent face scrub pretty much anywhere, but I’m really happy I bought this one. It isn’t particularly overpriced, and I love that there are actual pieces of ground almonds in the product to buff away any dead skin cells and debris on your skin!
The formula is comparable to a thick yogurt, or a face mask consistency. It is non abrasive, and when you rub the scrub into your skin it doesn’t feel gritty at all, unlike exfoliators containing microbeads. Personally, I think some exfoliators can feel like you’re rubbing sand into your skin, and I definitely prefer the thicker and less abrasive consistency. Exfoliating isn’t supposed to be painful! Its impossible to use this scrub in a way that will damage the delicate skin on your face. If you do like a more abrasive exfoliator, this is not the one for you.
The face scrub doesn’t lather up when you’re rubbing it into your skin, but feels like it foams a little when you are washing it off. It contains ground almonds and cornmeal to do the exfoliating part, and sweet almond oil, honey and oatmeal to nourish your skin, leaving it soft and smooth!
Mario Badescu say the Almond & Honey Face Scrub is ideal for combination, dry or sensitive skin. The formula could possible be too rich if you have oily skin, however I don’t find it leaves my skin feeling oily at all. Just nice and soft!
At £13.30-£14 depending on where you buy it, I think its amazing value for money considering how much product you get vs how little product you need. Its a 113g tub, and because its a tub you will be able to use every single bit of the scrub without trying to squeeze out the hard to reach bits.
You can purchase the Mario Badescu Almond & Honey Face Scrub here for £13.50.
