The Product & My Experience
Amara Organix Activated Charcoal and Tea Tree Facial Scrub/Mask
I received this product in the mail for me to review, along with their Calamine & Rosehip Handmade Soap. I have to say I didn’t have too high expectations from this when I first saw it as it seemed simple and more like a small start-up, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The packaging seemed extremely local with the soap in a cling film packed in a brown-paper wrapper & the Face Scrub in a simple flip-top bottle with no extravagant label design. Just simple ingredients mentioned. Though it did appeal to have a rustic / traditional look, it didn’t build any high expectations with the packaging.
There wasn’t a complete list of ingredients mentioned on the face scrub just that it was enriched with cocoa butter, jojoba oil, Himalayan pink salt, activated charcoal, tea tree oil & basil essential oil.
I was first surprised when I opened that flip top cover. It had the most amazing fragrance of tea tree & I guess, basil. Not too strong yet extremely refreshing. The product is quite runny for a scrub, let alone a mask. It has tiny particles of activated charcoal creating a light abrasive effect and has a cooling effect on the skin. You need a little bit to apply over the face and I would suggest lightly scrubbing for a while as the cooling effect takes a few seconds to be felt. Best left on to do its magic for abit and then washed off. It washes off easily and doesn’t leave the skin too dry though it feels thoroughly cleansed. I am extremely impressed with this face scrub/mask as it is extremely light on the skin and yet extremely effective. Does a great job in calming acne and clearing the bacteria to avoid break-outs. Would definitely suit oily skin.
