Review: Not only does the name sound delicious, it smells delectable too. Almond & Honey Face Scrub claims to be a non-abrasive face scrub however I disagree because the formula is a little rough and I would not recommend it for sensitive skin, or skin which breaks out excessively because it could strip the skin and cause upset like it did to mine. After using the formula dry my skin was left looking red and feeling a little raw as well. Add water to soften the formula however and Almond & Honey Face Scrub becomes a lovely exfoliant that removes dead skin and helps skin feel softer and smoother. The formula contains Almond Oil, Kaolin, Honey, Corn Meal and Algae Extract but also contains ingredients such as Talc and parabens. Whilst Almond & Honey Face Scrub is well priced, I probably will not purchase in future because I know of many alternatives which work better with my skin, and also because Mario Badescu is sold in Australia exclusively at KIT Cosmetics, making it really hard to get to.
