Review | Etude House Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub

Sunday, 24 November 2013

Hello, beautiful people! How's your weekend? It's a beautiful Sunday and if you don't have anything planned for the rest of your weekend, treat yourself with body massage or mini spa that you could do on your own.

Taken from Etude House Korea Facebook page. :D 
It's hard, isn't it? Good work!

For today, just rest~


Anyway, I had some free time in my hands right now hence another review! Today, in continuation from yesterday's review, I'm going to share with you guys one of my favourite scrub which is Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub from Etude House.


First of all, I love scrubs. Well, I love anything that remove dead skin cells off my skin so scrub is one of it. I tried other brands before and finally I found a product that is not harsh to my skin and doesn't break me out. Scrubbing my skin has been a beauty ritual for me for the past few months and I scrub at least once a week.

Anyway, moving on to the Product Description:

It is formulated with Baking Powder to penetrate, exfoliate and cleanse skin deep within pores to remove makeup and residues. 
This scrub cleanser is also formulated with peppermint to soothe skin.



How to use:

Tear along the dotted line to extract scrub cleanser from pouch (1 pouch per application).
Apply the product to wet face, lather and massage then rinse off with warm water.
Use 1-2 times per week.

Weight: 7g x 24 sachets

Packaging: 



The product comes in kinda huge triangle-shaped cylinder box in the same blue hues and decoration like other products from the same Baking Powder line. There's product description printed in English at one of the side of the box.

When I first saw this product, I thought "hey, that's cool!". Why? Because the product is housed within separated mini pouches and I love that concept because I travel most of the time. I even sometimes pack a overnight bag to my studio so having this product in minis is a total convenient to me. What's more? It has the line cut so it's very easy to just tear it off without the need to use scissors.


As I read from other beauty bloggers reviews on this product, some of them they tend to separate the portion for twice (or thrice) of usage but you guys know me right? I tend to do use a product according to its recommendation so yeah, as 7 grams of product per pouch is ample for my whole facial area hence I spread the product to my neck area as well.

Texture and Scent:


As it's active ingredient is Baking Powder, the texture is like fine grains in a slightly runny cream form which also helps in exfoliating process. It's not harsh so it doesn't irritate my skin, nor it too small to function as exfoliating beads. One thing that I noticed about this product, the more I massage it onto my skin, the finer the grains turned into. So I guess, even if you massage a little bit harder than you should (which I'm not recommending, just massage your skin in circular motion gently and let the scrub does it job), it won't be a problem and this is also an indicator that it's time for you should rinse your face thoroughly.  

The moment I applied it on my skin right after I opened the pouch, it felt so cool, so I guess that's the peppermint and like the Cleansing Cream from the same line, it has the same citrus-like scent. It's nice and refreshing. It doesn't linger so I like it. 

Verdict:


Notice the fine grains? I love this product. It works with my skin and I didn't experience irritation none whatsoever. It's gentle, my skin feel smoother, cleaner, and fresh and doesn't leave, me with 'tight feeling' after using it. So I guess it's safe to say that this product really does deep cleansed my pores. I do notice my skin is a little bit brighter. :)

The fact this product comes in mini pouches is a total plus! Love that lemony scent and cool peppermint sensation as well!

Overall, there's nothing that I don't like about this product and I totally would recommend this to anyone who has the same skin type as moi, from oily to combo. Those with dry skin can give this a go I think cause it's not really that harsh. 

Final Verdict: 5/5. Will I repurchase? Well, after trying this out, I bought another box the very next week. :) So I did repurchased and will repurchase again when I'm finished. 

This scrub is retailed at RM39.90 at all Etude House beauty stores in Malaysia. I got the first box in mid August where the store had Buy 3 products and get 30% discount and the second box during the start of the Sweeties Club September Promotion for only RM19.90 both in Etude House 1Borneo Hypermall, KK, Sabah. Oh, I miss those beauty assistants! They're so cheerful and friendly!

So, I guess that's a wrap! Do share your must-have scrub and tell why you love it! I'll see you guys on next post!
