Vegan facial scrub review – Zero Waste Face Scrub from Coven Vegan Skincare

An honest review

We all know how bad exfoliating microbeads are for our seas and environment. That’s what makes searching for eco-friendly options so important.

You’ve probably tried salt scrubs and sugar exfoliators but have you ever tried rice and oats to remove your dead skin?  

I tried the rice exfoliator from Coven Skincare and here’s what I thought…

 

What I loved…

 

To apply this face scrub, you simply pour out a small size of the powder and gently add water to make it into as thick, or thin, a paste as you want. Then using circular motions, brush it over your skin before rinsing.

I am fortunate to have very good skin and so I never really feel the need to do a lot to my face. But after making up a quick paste of this face scrub, I had no idea what my face was missing! It left it lovely and smooth, especially after moisturizing.

The smell was gorgeous too – although that’s subjective, as I don’t know if everyone would like the smell of warm porridge on their face!

Another great thing was that I tested out the sampler pack and I found it lasted a very long time! I used it about 3 times per week and I loved the fact that what I was putting on my face was natural but also full of natural health benefits. The combination of rice and oats in this powder gives you a lovely balance of tighter pores and skin which retains its moisture – which make this product great for those with oily skin or acne.

 

And what I wasn’t so keen on… 

 

Unfortunately, whilst my skin is fairly blemish free, it is very delicate and I found the mixture to be quite harsh on my face. I tried making a thicker paste and then a thinner one to see if there was any difference in effect but I found myself with red patches on my cheeks. The key for this would be to use extra delicate motions and to gently remove the mixture with a warm cloth.

 

So, would I recommend it?

 

I really enjoyed using this product and the combination of ingredients does your skin really good. For this reason, I would recommend trying it!
