Acai & Goji Scrub, Marula Oil and Green Tea Face Mask


Acai and Goji Microdermabrasion Scrub

This scrub is rich in antioxidants and consists of fine micro pearls and essential oils. This scrub promises to exfoliate gently and absorb natural skin oils. This makes the skin “cleansed” and made free of grease and dirt.

Ingredients:

  • Aqua
  • Montmorillonite (Beige clay)
  • Cetearyl alcohol & Polysorbate 60 (Emulsifying Wax NF)
  • Prunus armeniaca (Apricot kernel oil)
  • Aqua, Potassium oleate, Potassium cocoate, Glycerin, Potassium citrate, Citric acid (Castile)
  • Pumice
  • Cocos nucifera (Coconut oil)
  • Helianthus annuus (Sunflower oil)
  • Vegetable glycerin
  • Coco-glucoside
  • Persea gratissima (Avocado oil)
  • Stearic acid
  • Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin
  • Xanthan gum
  • Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract (Acai extract)
  • Lycium Barbarum Fruit Extract (Goji berry Powder)
  • Avena sativa meal extract (Oat silk)
  • Citrus medica limonum peel oil (Lemon)
  • Jasminum officinale (Jasmine)
  • Orchis mascula (Orchid)
  • Amber
  • Santalum album oil (Sandalwood)

This scrub consists mainly of fatty acids. I therefore understand that it is said that this is a ‘soft’ scrub, because the added oils soften the skin during scrubbing.

Marula face oil serum 

This oil has both oil and serum in the name and that caused me confusion in the first instance. After studying the ingredients I saw that this product mainly consists of fatty acids.

These are the fatty acids marula and apricot oil. Based on this, I can confirm that this product is indeed an oil. This is useful to know so that you can take into account the order in which you apply skincare products.

Marula oil naturally contains vitamins C and E and amino acids that would help renew the skin. Apricot oil restores dry spots and firms your skin. This combination keeps the skin hydrated throughout the day.

Ingredients:

  • Prunus armeniaca (Apricot) kernel oil
  • Sclerocarya birrea seed oil (Marula oil)
  • Tocopherol & Helianthus annuus seed oil (Vitamin E)
  • Boswellia Carterii (Frankincense essential oil)
  • Rosa damascena oil (Rose damask essential oil)
  • Pelargonium graveolens oil (Rose geranium essential oil)

The marula oil is, in addition to being rich in antioxidants, supplemented with essential oils. Personally, I am not a fan of this, since essential oils have little added value in a skincare product because it provides no positive contribution to skin improvement.

Green tea face mask

This face mask based on green tea dissolves an excess of sebum and prevents impurities. The green tea mask helps with anti-aging and is full of vitamins to nourish your skin and repair UV damage. It’s said to improve the elasticity of the skin as well

Ingredients:

  • Aqua
  • Maris limus (Dead sea mineral mud)
  • Cetearyl alcohol & Polysorbate 60 (Emulsifying wax NF)
  • Helianthus annuus (Sunflower oil)
  • Vegetable glycerin
  • Olea europaea (Olive oil)
  • Cocos nucifera (Coconut oil)
  • Butyrospermum parkii (Shea butter)
  • Prunus armeniaca (Apricot kernel oil)
  • Phenoxyethanol and Ethylhexylglycerin
  • Stearic acid
  • Zinc oxide
  • Xanthan gum
  • Allantoin
  • Pyrus malus (Apple fruit extract)
  • Cucumis melo (Melon extract)
  • Cucumis sativus (Cucumber extract)
  • Camellia sinensis leaf (Green tea extract)
  • Avena sativa meal extract (Oat silk)
  • Tocopherol (Vitamin E)
  • Sodium hyaluronate (Hyaluronic acid)
  • Lavandula angustifolia oil (Lavender essential oil)
  • Citrus medica limonum peel oil (Lemon essential oil)

The green tea face mask is very nourishing because of the glycerine and hyaluronic acid. These ingredients give your skin a boost and a beautiful, smooth appearance

Final assessment

It is a consideration for yourself whether you want to use a scrub on your face. I am more a fan of exfoliants that you just apply to the skin, since they are much milder and safer. Although I have to say that I really like the acai & goji scrub for the rest of the body.

The products in this bundle contain essential oils that can irritate the skin. This is a downside for me. In addition, it is important to know that the products are all very nourishing and certainly help you to reduce UV damage.

You can purchase these products either as a bundle or separately via:
