I never use soap on my face just usually a face wash and then occasionally some sort of face scrub to really cleanse my skin as I do suffer with an oily t-zone inparticular, the odd nasty zit and plenty of black heads.
I was browsing bored one day on Amazon and came across this Snake Venom Face Scrub and decided to give it a go as it just sounded so interesting to me!
The tube is plastic, black and shiny with sections of white and yellow colour on it and on the front of it we are told that it is Balance Active Formula Snake Venom Face Scrub 'Deeply Cleanses, Smoothens, Brightens' and that it contains Syn-Ake and that it is Dermatologically tested then on the back of the tube other information listed includes being told a bit about the product and how to use it, the ingredients are listed, the size is stated which is 75ml (and the only size I have seen this available to purchase in by the way), we are told to use the product up within 12 months of opening it and contact details for the manufacturer are listed. Its an ok and informative enough and easy to use tube this one and quite ok for either of the sexes to display in the bathroom!
Ok lets get one disappointing fact right, right out there...now! This does not contain Snake Venom but a thing called Syn Ake which is meant to act as a venom like product apparently!
The scrub is white, runny with little brown scrubby bits in it which is actually walnut shell and it has a very light fruity smell to it along with a hint of menthol, its pleasant, light and again unisex in its fragrance in my opinion.
Using it is really simply. I wet my face and then I gently rub a very small blob all over my face. I can feel the exfoliating particles on my face in use but it doesn't hurt of feel uncomfortable at all and the liquid itself is soft but rather watery and then it rinses off simply and in an unfussy way.
I expected more from this and never got it. Its ok for every day use but I haven't found that my skin is clearer in any way or softer really! I feel that it doesn't do alot at all in the way of deep cleansing or brightening my skin though it is gentle and I could use this every day if I wanted to but I wouldn't bother buying this to be honest it just isn't that effective!
Google if interested as I haven' ever seen this on sale in the high street. I bought this on Amazon for about £2.50 but I won't be buying it again even though it isn't awful it just hasn't made much of a difference to me!
