Review | Teen Skin Actives Clearing Skin Scrub

Sunday, September 14, 2014


Got this off Luxola when they were having a 15% off sale for the newly launched Teen Actives as my skin had been breaking out and all that nasty stuff. What caught my eye was obviously the face it stated clearing skin (and boy, did my skin needed some serious clearing!).

I was a little skeptical to try it though as my skin was really sensitive and I couldn't find any reviews regarding Teen Actives skin care on the web at all. Figured that nothing could really make my skin worse, I decided to give it a try!

Sounds good, right? I have been using this for about a month now (twice a week) and I have to say I'm pleased with this product. It didn't break me out further and I do notice lesser clogged pores and small bumps on my face. 

After use, my skin feels cleansed, smooth and fresh! I like using this scrub as it is not as drying as other scrubs I've tried. The scent isn't overpowering and smells herb-y (I guess due to the tea tree and lemon grass - but this scent gives an illusion that it will be effective haha). The natural bamboo beads are of a good size, not too big or small for an effective cleanse. It doesn't hurt my skin either which is good (some scrubs make me feel like I'm gonna pull off the skin despite me being all gentle!). Overall, I really enjoy this scrub as it gently exfoliates my skin, making it softer and smoother.

My skin has cleared up a lot since before and I'm really glad. Having acne is no fun and it doesn't help that I have to photograph my face for my makeup instagram either. My skin is recovering and I have to attribute some of it to this scrub! I changed my whole facial skin care routine, so it is hard to pin point what product was the saving grace but I'm pretty sure this scrub deserves some credit!

I got mine off Luxola at $10 (which you can check here). Super affordable for a 75ml bottle! This post isn't sponsored whatsoever - I just get a lot of my makeup and beauty products from there as they occasionally have sales! I may get more Teen Actives goodies when my current skin care runs out! 

Rating: 4/5

PS. I am no longer a teen and I defiantly decided to use this still! and it works haha!

Have a great makeup day ahead my friends and like always, thanks so much for dropping by! Xo.
