Review: Oz Naturals Ancient Orient Rice Enzyme Dermafoliant
*Disclosure* I received this product complimentary from Oz Naturals and BrandBacker for review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own, like always!
Hello everyone! I was given the opportunity to try out this Oz Naturals Rice Exfoliant, and I was really excited because it reminded me of another product by a different brand. I was curious to compare the two, and it's safe to say they're different!
Here is some info on the product:
OZ Naturals FACE SCRUB EXFOLIANT utilizes bamboo to gently exfoliate skin and unclog pores without irritation, drying or stripping.
FINALLY A FACIAL SCRUB THAT contains lactic acid and alpha lipoic acid to further help the exfoliation process by breaking down and removing dead skin cells, revealing the glow of healthy skin beneath, and assists in reducing fine lines, wrinkles and other signs of premature aging from sun damage.
ANOTHER KEY INGREDIENT, green tea extract, is rich in antioxidants and helps to prevent collagen breakdown as well as tone and protect the skin from the damaging effect of free radicals.
THE PRO-VITAMIN B5 IN OUR scrub is readily absorbed by the skin and penetrates deep down, retaining moisture and relieving dry, irritated skin, and Alpha Lipoic Acid provides anti-inflammatory effects reducing redness and blotchiness, shrinking pore size and imparting a healthy radiance to the skin
SAFE FOR ALL SKIN TYPES, our bamboo exfoliant is all natural and free of harmful ingredients.
The twist top opener is kind of annoying because I end up getting the powder everywhere. Despite that, the scrubbing grains are pretty nice for exfoliation. They're a bit rough, but if you're gentle, it's fine. I'm confused with rice being in the name of the product because I'm not quite sure which ingredient contains it, it could be the sucrose, but I'm not 100% sure. The directions say to take a nickel size amount and add some water to make a paste, then gently rub into skin in circular motions, and leave on for 5 minutes. After I rinse it off, my skin is pretty darn soft and I notice my serums and moisturizers that I put on after sink in alot better. When I first received this, I thought it would be like the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, but this is more abrasive than that one is.
This exfoliator costs $24.95 on Amazon, and I do find that to be a fair price, but I personalyl would not purchase this myself.
Would you try this exfoliant? What exfoliator do you like?
