Hello dear people!!! ❤️❤️❤️
I hope you are doing great… 🙂
Well, exfoliation is one of the most important steps of a proper skincare routine and I am sure we all can agree on that! 😛
Scrubbing your face and body removes dead skin cells and impurities and leaves the skin deeply cleansed! ❤️
Today, I am going to review an organic, gel-based walnut scrub, which I have been using for quite some time now…
Read on to know all about it! 😀

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
Organix Mantra Kashmiri walnut scrub gel comes in a sturdy, transparent plastic tub with a black-coloured screw-on cap on the top. It also has an inner lid which sits on the mouth of the tub and prevents any sort of leakage…
The labels around the tub contain all the details about the product, including the complete list of ingredients and manufacturing details printed on them…
This walnut scrub is transparent/brown(?) in colour and has a slightly runny consistency… It has a natural, refreshing tea tree oil fragrance, which I absolutely love! ❤️
The smell isn’t very strong and doesn’t linger much post-use…
The scrub gel has a good amount of walnut shell particles suspended in it. The granules are small and mild and do not feel harsh against my skin… I usually need about half a teaspoon of the gel to cover my face and neck and less than two tablespoons to scrub the entire body. The gel base helps the scrub to spread easily on the skin and it is very easy to work with! ❤️
This scrub removes and washes away all the dead skin cells and impurities from my skin and leaves it deeply cleansed and refreshed! It makes my skin feel soft and smooth after use… It may help with blackheads/whiteheads if used properly, like all other scrubs!
I have a normal skin type right now and this scrub doesn’t leave my skin feeling dry or stretchy. However, it also doesn’t add any significant amount of hydration/nourishment to my skin… Thus, in my opinion, this scrub gel is best suited for oily to normal-dry skin types, while drier skin types would benefit more from cream-based scrubs…
