I’ve been noticing a few interesting brands at Clicks, many of them aimed at younger skin. This category was really lacking in South Africa for a while, if you had pimples, your only affordable option was to use one of the other brands, which I really would not suggest if you have ny type of sensitive or dry skin with it.
I spotted Formula 10.0.6 at Eastgate a few weeks back while hunting for an exfoliator. My skin has suddenly broke out it pimples and I really thought now would be the best time to try it. This is the Formula 10.0.6 One Smooth Operator Pore clearing face scrub with zinc, oat and pumice. This scrub is R100 so it is a little more expensive compared to other brands that we are used to. It claims that the pumic found in the scrub is volcanic. But, I can’t really vouch for that.
The actual review:
I liked this scrub. It is definitely not very heavy duty and doesn’t leave my skin red and raw afterwards like I have experienced with other scrubs. Surprisingly it is a clear liquid with both white and black beads. The beads themselves are not very fine, but the scrub isn’t very saturated. The scrub left my face feeling clean and smooth afterwards without too much tightness.
My skin is left clear and clean, I will definitely repurchase this.
