Final Verdict:

Okay I will be honest I am not big fan of scrubs.The reason being they somehow don’t suit oily and acne prone skin.I heard a positive things about this scrub so thought I will try it.I bought it on for 50% off:D which is going on from quite few days.You can buy it here.I like this scrub,it is very gentle like normal cleanser.I use twice a week,since I already use AHA Glow every day which is a exfoliant on its own.Overall a good scrub for oily skin!;)

My Rating:4.5/5
