Run… do not walk to buy PureCeuticals KuKui Nut Mineral Scrub ($40). I’m not a huge scrub fan; I’ve always felt they rubbed my (sensitive middle-aged) face a bit too raw, leaving it stinging rather than smooth. But this scrub has proved me wrong. It’s creamy and akin to a soft, decadent mud. I say that because it looks like something you’d dig out of the Dead Sea. It’s gray and opaque, meaning you might expect it to be gritty, but instead it feels silky and smooth on your face. So much so that you might be tempted to dab a tad more on than you’re supposed to — a small amount is all you need. And that’s another reason to love the product: you use a little for a lot of results. And only twice a week!
When I put it on, I instantly felt like it was working. After dabbing it on, massaging it on my face, and mixing it with warm water, my skin felt super soft and supple. Supposedly that feeling comes from the Kukui nut oil, which helps to renew and rejuvenate skin’s normal activity. Pineapple enzymes also contributed to my new skin since they digest proteins and help restore smoothness. Best of all? That feeling lasted.
I have to admit, I’m a bit lazy… I’m an all-natural gal who likes to use as few products as possible when it comes to cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliating (which I don’t always do), and applying makeup. PureCeuticals KuKui Nut Mineral Scrub makes the beauty process an easy-peasy reality, giving you a super clean and healthy feeling. The fact that it’s also eco-conscience, holistic, and affordable, is icing on the cake.
