My Experience with the Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub
The Himalaya Herbals walnut scrub is an average product. Some things are nice and some I didn’t like it. To start off, the scrub contains walnut and apple which is very good for the skin. It did reduced my blackheads and whiteheads on my nose but complete removal is a false claim. The texture of the scrub is bit on a coarse side and when used on the face you have to be gentle. It has to be used in circular motion so that dead skin cells can be removed.
It did not made my skin dry after use which some scrubs or face wash do, which was a good thing. The walnut scrub did not cause any rashes or breakouts on the face. I could feel my skin soft after the usage which is good for the oily skin. Though it would not remove your tan or make your face glow.
The fragrance was not good and was a bummer. It claims to be a mild scrub but believe me, the granules are big. If not properly used, you could end up tearing your skin.
Would I recommend Himalaya Herbals Gentle Exfoliating Walnut Scrub?
Yes, if you use it gentle and is not fragrance freak unlike me. It’s a pocket friendly scrub with some benefits.
