Klairs - Gentle Black Sugar Facial Polish - Review

8:30 AM

Today, is a review about a product I received in my Wishtrend Pore Box (unboxing here). The Gentle black sugar facial polish is a scrub for the face which is perfect for any skin types, I'm currently loving it and let me tell you a little bit more about it :

The scrub comes in a little brown plastic jar. It also comes with a lid to keep your product away from any germs, and as always, I'm grateful that Asian skincare products come with a lid as a further step towards clean products. 

As you can see, I wasn't exaggerating when I said I was loving this product, I pretty much dug in there !

You get a lot of product for a reasonable price and for the effects it has on the skin, I do think it's worth it. 

My Thoughts

The product's title has the word "gentle" in it and that's really how it could be describe. It isn't a harsh scrub and would be suitable for sensitive skin. In my current winter skin situation, this scrub is the only one (between the other one I own, that is to say) that's gentle enough on my skin and doesn't dry it out in the end with no feelings of unbearable tightness. The exfoliant agent in this, is actual sugar which ends up melting and leave you with a moisturizing substance. You can also use the corresponding oil that goes with this product (also received in the box), I'm going to review it next.

I would say this is more of a mild type of exfoliation which is perfect for weekly consistent use but won't get all the junk out in one go like clay masks tend to do, but this product never claim to do such. I didn't notice any improvement in the blackhead department, although I do have less dry and flaky skin going on.

Will I buy it again when I'm done with it ? 
Yes and no : Yes, because it's a good product and worked out for me but no, because I still want to try out other products as the asian beauty junkie that I'm. I've also hoped into the chemical exfoliation bandwagon with BHA/AHA, pH and all of that, so I'm setting regular exfoliation aside. (I'll probably do a proper article about acids and pH of products in a couple of months when I get everything in order and try out products).
