Summers and oily skin don’t go hand in hand! I usually have oily skin all year round, but during summers, it becomes even more oily and sweaty (sorry for TMI). Taking extra care of my skin becomes a necessity for me during this sunny season. I prefer using all-natural products these days because they have refreshing smell and work great too! So today I’ll be introducing you all to a brand which makes completely natural and handmade products. The brand is called “Ma Earth Botanicals”..

Ma Earth has kept the packaging of their products very simple and elegant. The scrub comes in a round glass tub with a black coloured screw lid on top. There is also a white flap under it which keeps the product from spilling here and there. The first thing you’ll notice about this scrub is its smell.. Man it smells heavenly! And I absolutely loooove nice smelling products!
My main concern while using a scrub is its texture – whether it is fine or gritty. Gritty scrubs are good to be used on body, but if you use them on face, then they might end up irritating your facial skin. This scrub has very fine texture which lets you clean the dirt off your face without irritating your skin. I use this scrub by mixing it with rosewater, you can also mix it with normal water or milk. After I used it for the first time, I noticed that it made my skin feel softer and appear cleaner. The information on their website says that this scrub can be used regularly, but I would prefer using it on alternate days. I don’t go outside much so my skin doesn’t really gets “dirty” (oops sorry, couldn’t find a better word to explain what I’m trying to say, but you get it right? ?), but as I said, I have oily skin and it becomes terrible during summers. That’s why I have to use scrubs/facepacks every now and then to make it feel less annoying! And yup, this scrub is surely helping me to keep that annoying oilyness away!
If you are someone who stays outdoors or in polluted area most of the time, then this scrub is going to be your new best friend! Just use it after a hectic day ~ its smell will lift up your mood and its ingredients will remove all the dirt and impurities off your skin efficiently!
What I liked about Ma Earth Botanicals Lavender Facial Scrub :-
• Has 100% natural ingredients which are very beneficial for the skin.
• Smells good.
• Doesn’t hurt or irritate the skin.
• It is a two-in-one product, can be used as a face pack and as a scrub.
• Can be used by people with extremely dry or sensitive skin (make sure to test it first though).
• Removes impurities from the skin and makes it feel softer.
What I didn’t like about Ma Earth Botanicals Lavender Facial Scrub :-
• A bit pricey.
• Ingredients list and instructions should be mentioned on the pack itself.
Rating - 4.9/5
All in all a good product which will suit most of the skin types. Its price might be a put off for some, but we can’t deny the fact that it’s an all-natural product and it’s hard to find such products these days!
Will I recommend this product?
Definitely! If you don’t mind shelling out some extra bucks to get an all-natural product then you should try this scrub!
