Review: Eskinol Naturals Papaya Facial Scrub

What's up?

To be honest, the very first time I've heard of the brand Eskinol, it was from the toner or cleanser that our helpers used to use.

Not to be all snobby or anything but I had a mindset, since then, that the Eskinol brand was too cheap to function properly on my skin.

A few weeks ago, we were at the supermarket and I needed an exfoliator. This was the cheapest one I could find so, I went with it.

IN TERMS OF:

1. Packaging: (5/5)
Love the packaging. It's very sleek and not at all something that I would expect from a cheap brand. I love the shape of it. I can feel that it's made of pretty good packaging material and I love how you can just take a look at the colors and instantly know that it has papaya in it.
(Sorry for the quality, my camera didn't want to focus.)

2. Scent: (5/5)
I'm a big fan of fruity scents so, it's no surprise that I fell in love with the scent of this product. It smells like papaya. It is a bit citrus-y but overall, very fruity.

3. Consistency: (5/5)
I love the consistency as well. I like how it's not too runny. It is not too thick as well wherein you'll find difficulty squeezing it out. It's in the happy medium of the range and I love it.

4. Lathering: (3/5)
The lather is a little bit underwhelming. It simply develops a slight foam but it's nowhere near bubbly. I actually can't recall if my old exfoliator bubbled up but this one definitely didn't.

5. Exfoliating Effect: (4/5)
Here's where it gets technical. The beads are on the tiny side so, if you don't have sensitive skin, this will not do anything for you. I, on the other hand, do not have sensitive skin although, the St. Ives Apricot Scrub hurts my face. I don't know if that's any indicator that I have sensitive skin. Sensitive skin or not, this exfoliator is just a tad bit milder for my taste. If the beads were only a little bit bigger, it would have been perfect.

OVERALL RATING: 4.4/5

WOULD I RECOMMEND?: Yes but only to those who have sensitive skin.

OTHER FACTORS

Price: Php106.25 for 100mL
Availability: I got mine at Unimart

Michelle said...

I didn't really notice any extreme moisturizing effects. Plus I have oily skin so, I can't really tell. :)

hi Michelle I am interested to try this product but I want to know first if you experience any break outs or popping pimple or any irritation after you use this?

Aya said...

I used the Eskinol toner too way, way back. I honestly thought before that they only carried toners. Lately ko lang napansin ung ibang products nila. Hahaha. Honestly, I don't exfoliate but I'm planning to start... Thanks for this review! :D

Michelle said...

@glenn encinares: Nope! But I'm not prone to breakouts. :)

@Aya: I only recently started exfoliating once a week. Naconscious ako sa skin care regimen ko =))

Hazel said...

oh great i'm on a lookout for my next facial scrub after finding out about ponds testing on animals! will check out on this ;)

Michelle said...

Cinacareer ang pagbboycott ah! Good job! :) That's why I got this one actually. It was the only cruelty-free exfoliator available at that time. :)

Myx said...

i wish i would be able to use this.

im one of those who have sensitive skin. :(

Michelle said...

Aww.. Well there are lots more products out there! I'll try and do reviews if I do get them :)

sugar sugar said...

i tend to stay away from eskinol products as they break me out big time but i suppose that's just me. :) hihi~

Michelle said...

That's great to know! I'm not really prone to breakouts so, I don't know if it can give other people breakouts.

JeeanFoxy said...

I'm using Eskinol w/ glutathione (toner, cream, and scrub). They really work! 4/5.

Michelle said...

Oh wow! I generally stay away from glutathione because I'm actually working to go tanner. :)) But thanks for the info. I'll keep it in mind! :)

Hollie said...

Nice Review sis! My current facial scrub "Pure Beauty" is almost empty. This looks promising. I've seen this in groceries but I've never tried any product from Eskinol so I just skip it. I'm currently eyeing the Human Nature Facial scrub and see how that goes. hehe

Dane said...

I've been browsing online more than 3 hours as of late, yet I never discovered any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is beautiful value enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content material as you probably did, the web will be a lot more helpful than ever before.
