Pretty darned good! Etude House Baking Powder Crunch Pore Scrub

I'm finding my "travel scrub" to be a pretty darned good use. While Etude recommends you use an ENTIRE sachet each time you scrub your face you'll never be done scrubbing! I find half a sachet at a time will do and the sachet will keep it from drying out even if you scrub on the alternate day.

The scrub is a thick white cream with very fine scrubbing granules, presumably baking soda. It has a light fresh citrus scent that isn't overwhelming but that I enjoy. As you scrub the grains will dissolve and disappear at which point you can rinse off and reveal glowing, clean and lovely soft skin. I find it helpful in clearing up clogged pores and pimples too.

For review I used up two sachets over a period of two weeks.

One problem I have with the scrub though is that I find it really hard to rinse off the soapy residue. Even after several rinses and going over again with a facial wash my face and hands still feel slightly soapy. I recommend this for use in the shower then - to minimise frustration. It's pretty gentle but I think you should scrub with this more than three times a week.

Overall, I love it and will be happy to tote a sachet or two along on trips.

Pick it up for Etude House for about RM30, each box contains 24 sachets.

I'm in love with it after trying the sachets you gave me! :D Will be going back to buy the full box.

By the way, thanks for the shower tip - I find it seems to rinse off a lot better in the shower with warm water.. :p

Nikki: hahaha! Well fortunately the scrub itself doesn't look like peanuts. =D

Bee: Yay! I'm still wondering if the powder version is as good. It looks better for regular use. =P
