I recently had the opportunity to test Primavera Revitalizing Face Scrub ($28). I am 48 with normal Caucasian skin. Primavera is a company who prides itself for its natural ingredients and the recognized use of those materials. Their tag line is: “PRIMAVERA aspires to enhance the well-being of body, mind and soul through a holistic approach to beauty and health that is rooted in decades of deep, collective knowledge. We embrace every opportunity to creatively share our knowledge of healing plant therapy, our love of nature and our respect for humanity.”

The face scrub I used was part of their Revitalizing Line. It comes in a beautiful green glass bottle with black plastic pump dispenser. The size and protective cover for pump allow for easy travel use. The product dispenses a white creamy textured lotion with moderate to light disbursement of jojoba wax beads. The exfoliation is very gentle and is appropriate for daily use multiple times a day with no irritation to skin. The cream and beads combine to effectively lift makeup.

For use, I would distribute enough product to massage on my face, then wiped it off with a dampened towel. I would either follow with a freshly dampened towel or toner to remove any residue. Alternately, I liked using it in the shower where I could freely rinse my face with water. My face felt soft and clean when finished and the softness lasted for hours after use. Non-cosmetic users certainly will appreciate the soft after effects. Makeup users will enjoy the smoothness of your freshly washed skin making a nice base for makeup. Primavera Revitalizing Face Scrub contains: organic rose essential oil to help reduce broken capillaries and remote cell renewal for radiant, even tone; organic pomegranate seed oil containing powerful antioxidants to help fight free radical damage; jojoba wax beads to gently remove dead skin cells; and organic apricot kernel oil to soothe and soften. Overall, I like this product for a daily use item and appreciated the opportunity to share my research with you.
