Nana May's Magic Facial Scrub

Today I'm gonna review one of my winning gifts from Nikki.

What is it?
A delicate mix of beautiful salts and oils to exfoliate and moisturize the skin, aka a miracle replacing the 3-step skin regimen (cleanser-toner-moisturizer). It comes with a plastic spatula to stir and mix the ingredients, and also to dig them out.

What it claims:
Excellent for controlling teenage acne and great for mature skin, leaving you feeling silky smooth. Also effective for relieving the symptoms of skin conditions such as Eczema, Dermatitis and Psoriasis. It also treats Tinea, Dry Itchy Skin, Cracked Heels and Smelly Feet. Great for anyone with hands constantly in water - Nurses, Hairdressers, Mums, Chefs and Kitchen Hands. 

My first impression... 
The packaging is a hexagonal glass jar, very similar to Tiger Balm, LOL.

Dead Sea Salts, Celtic Salts, Essentials Oils of Spearmint, Peppermint, Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit, Rosemary and Chamomile; and Carrier Oils of Jojoba, Vitamin E, Apricot Seed, Avocado and Hazelnut.

Product: 4 out of 5
Quality: 4 out of 5
Packaging: 3 out of 5
Overall: 4 out of 5

Will I re-purchase? Yes

Where to buy and how much does it cost? 
On-line or check out their distributors near your location here. Available in 60gr, 120gr and 240gr with price vary from $39 to $69. For South East Asia residents, you may purchase it at Tiny Tapir. There's also available in gift pack (Magic Facial Scrub and Magic Hands of 50gr each) for RM80 only.

- 3-in-1 product, it saves time (and money) in your skin regiment!
- All natural ingredients; there are no added chemicals and no animal testing.
- Great exfoliating and nourishing treatment.
- Love the brrr sensation after application.
- It does make my skin left moisturized.

- Just like Nikki said, it's a bit messy to apply. So I recommend you to do it in your washroom.
- I wish they have a better packaging. I was accidentally cause the jar shaken and the oil leaked everywhere on my make-up station. *sigh*

What else you need to know:
When using the facial scrub, you should avoid the eye area as much as possible, and wait a short time for absorptions of the oils before using your eye serum after the scrub. There is a slim chance that there may be a reaction between the two products, so if any adverse reactions occur, discontinue use immediately. Should this be the case, it may be better to use the scrub in the morning, and the eye cream in the evening or vice versa.

  1. wah kelihatan kalo sering pake balsem tiger ;)

  2. from Medan Indonesia ngga ya???
    please visit
    there is interesting information

  3. ROFL. The photo comparison between the product and the Tiger Balm packaging was great!!!

    Is it similar to Shu Uemura's oil cleansing stuff?

  4. dev, maksudnya kalo uda abis pake ini ga perlu pake mosturizer lagi ya, jadi bole langsung pake bedak gitu?
    as u said, its 3 in 1, cleanser-toner-mosturizer?
    huehuehue.bingung. tp liat dari ingredients, keliatannya alami dan bagus.

  5. @det: hehe, gak juga sih :P

    @reallylife: hmm..

    @therry: thanks! Nope, if you wear heavy make-up, you still have to clean it first before starting Nana May's application.

    @alice: that's right! Hmm I always use it in the evening before I go to bed, tapi kalau mau pake make-up sih sebaiknya tunggu oil-nya meresap dulu ke kulit, kurang lebih sekitar 10-15menit. Sebelum pake bedak, saya biasanya pake primer & foundation dulu :)

  6. i wonder if that stuff can help destroy dna evidence???
