There are some facial scrubs that really have no penetration, and I constantly wonder what they're doing on the market. The purpose is obvious: deep cleansing of the pores and eliminating dead skin cells. Thankfully, Yonka for Men's Foam Scrub ($26.78) with bamboo gets it right. And it actually makes me want to you use it regularly (two to three times a week, of course). In fact, I like to think of facial scrubs as a "bonus" or "perk." Everyone should enjoy exfoliating!
A good scrub should always have an exfoliant, generally something natural like sugar, almonds, jojoba beads or even tiny beads in microdermabrasion. Yonka for Men Foam Scrub uses bamboo stem extract, a very interesting and unique ingredient as the exfoliant. Bamboo is a natural exfoliant that gives the skin a polished, glowing look and it's extremely safe. Additionally, it helps mattify the skin. With the help of jojoba beads, Yonka For Men Foam Scrub is an effective scrub to sloth away the dead skin cells.
I love how it also contains the token Yonka Essential Oils: lavender, geranium, rosemary, thyme and cypress. The combination of these oils (in addition to the lime oil, orange oil and lemon peel oil that's in the Foam Scrub) gives the product an amazing, fresh, uplifting aroma, which I feel is rare in most scrubs. I also love the algae extract, obviously derived from seaweed, a natural antioxidant and also a thickening agent.
Yonka For Men Foam Scrub is effective in tightening pores, eliminating the dead skin cells and wipes away dull complexions. www.yonkaformen.com
