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.
5: Beyond Explanation
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.
Price: Php106.25 for 100mL
