It’s tricky to use a scrub on oily & acne prone skin. It’s important that we reap the benefit of scrubbing without irritating the already exiting acne on the skin. I have very sensitive skin. Sometimes, herbal scrubs irritate my skin if they are too strong. I received Just Herbs Livelyclean Honey Exfoliating Face Cleansing Gel, in my February Fab Bag. Honestly, I have not used much of the Just Herbs products. So I am not quite a fan of Just Herbs (yet). I was neutral about this cleansing gel cum scrub from Just Herbs too, upon seeing it in the fab bag. So how did it work for me? You will get to know about it in while. Just stick with me….
About Just Herbs Livelyclean Honey Exfoliating Face Cleansing Gel
This is a mild cleansing gel from Just Herbs enriched with Neem, Holy Basil & Turmeric, known for their anticeptic properties. This cleanser can be used daily. It contains extracts of Arjuna, Symplocos bark and jojoba meal, which give mild exfoliation unclogging pores. Dead skin is dissolved and so are the impurities with thehelp of Orange Peel, revealing fresh new skin beneath. The product is free from SLES/SLS, PEG/PPG, GMO & other synthetic ingredients. Honey moisturizes your skin while keeping it soft & supple.
Rs. 425 for 100ml.
The product comes in a transparent plastic bottle with golden detailing. The 100ml packaging contains a black pump at the top, while the 50ml packaging does not contain a pump, rather is packed with a screw-in metallic cap at the top. There is also a plastic stopped beneath the cap to avoid any spillage. The bottle contains all the information about the product like, features, ingredients & directions to use the product.
How To Use
It’s an exfoliating cleansing gel. Hence it’s supposed to be used as a scrub. Apply some amount onto the skin and massage gently for few minutes (approx. 3-4). Then wash your face with plain water. Now, if you are following Just Herbs 6 Step Skin Regimen, you can go on with that, or simply moisturize your skin (like I do) after patting it dry.
While you are enjoying the scrubbing action of this cleansing gel, please be really gentle. Because , it has little uneven (herbal) scrubbing particles, so there are chances that you might hurt your skin if use more pressure.
Color, Texture & Smell
It is a honey based cleanser, so it is honey coloured. In fact the texture is also honey like, little runny but workable. It makes quite good lather for being a herbal product and being free of SLS & SLES. It also smells mostly of Honey. You will notice dark brown colored small scrubbing particles which seem to be the extracts of Arjuna & other herbal elements, posted in the about section.
I have been using it from quite a while. I find it extremely useful, when I want mild scrubbing for my face. Excessive scrubbing is bad for skin, but sometimes, my skin is in a phase where it is dry & flaky. In that situation, Just Herbs Livelyclean Honey Exfoliating Face Cleansing Gel fits the bill perfectly. Honey takes care of the dry spots while flakes are taken away by the herbal scrubbing particles. I am left with fresh & calm skin.
The cleansing gel smells of honey, feels like honey & works like honey. Since the product contains herbal ingredients, the scrubbing elements are little uneven in size. When I used it for the very first time, I felt it was bit scratchy, maybe because I was not gentle enough. But later on, I went with a light hand & the scrubbing was fun & effective. There was no unwanted scratches on my face.
I have not suffered any breakout that I can attribute to this cleansing gel. If I am gentle with the scrubbing part, my sensitive skin does not get irritated despite of the fact that it contains a lot of herbal ingredients.
The price I feel is bit on higher side, but eventually it is very economical since I do not need much of the product for a session.
