Miva Naturals Sugar Almond Scrub
Hello everyone, today I’ve come up with the review of Miva Naturals Sugar Almond Scrub for Face and Body.So,I have used it both ways and also as a lip scrub and would tell you how I use it. I have used it more as a body scrub and it works really well on both face and body. I have mentioned many times in my earlier posts that just like our face our body needs all the self-love and pampering. If you’re just stuck onto using a conventional soap bar and loofah then I think its time for you to step up your bathing regime.
Scrubbing your face and body is necessary to get rid of the dead skin cell buildup. It helps in rejuvenating and revitalising the skin. The other few benefits of using a scrub are, it facilitates blood circulation, removes tan, moisturizes the skin and makes the skin look youthful and fresh. So, with all these benefits let’s dive into the review of this Sugar Almond scrub by Miva Naturals.

My experience of using it as a Face Scrub
Upon looking at the scrub the sugar beads look very big. I was sceptical that it will be too harsh on the skin. So what I did was I warmed it up for 5 seconds on my palms and then massaged it on my face. Initially, It creates a very thick, rich and creamy lather. But after sometime, it melts onto the skin. You would feel as if you’re massaging a cream onto your skin. Something that I’ve never experienced with any scrub before. Post washing my face felt soft and supple. It gave a slight brightened effect on my skin. What I noticed is that it moisturized my skin to a certain extent because of the presence of coconut oil, almond oil and castor oil to name a few.
My experience of using it as a Body Scrub
This scrub gently exfoliates the skin. I have wrinkly dry hands and feet so it does help in getting rid of dead skin cells. The presence of nourishing ingredients in it helps in giving a soft feel to the skin. But not so much that your shower becomes an oil slick. It would be a perfect option to use it before waxing to open ingrown hair follicles.
Post washing it gives a slight shine onto the skin because of the presence of many moisturising ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil etc. My skin does feel soft and non-greasy. Even after washing it off, it leaves behind a subtle fragrance that lingers for quite sometime.
I have used it as a lip scrub and it helps in removing those dry and dead skin cells.My lips feel soft, plump and hydrated after using it.
So overall it’s a good scrub that helps in thoroughly cleansing and removing dead skin cells without making the skin dry or stretchy.
