OLEHENRIKSEN Walnut Complexion Scrub /Review/

Hi everyone!

As a makeup artist I know that beautiful skin is impossible without a good care. And one of the most important steps in a good skin care is cleansing. So today I want to tell you about wonderful product - OLEHENRIKSEN Walnut Complexion Scrub. This is a deep cleansing product for the face that is suitable for all skin types and can be used instead of your regular cleanser 2-3 times a week.

What company says: 

Every so often, your complexion needs a little extra attention to enhance the skin’s natural renewal cycle. Nothing does this better than a densely textured, smooth gliding and terrifically energizing facial scrub. Activated with water, the finely ground walnut powder foams up and slips over the skin effortlessly to awaken beautiful glowing skin.

Ingredient benefits:

Aloe vera - Moisturizes, calms and heals
Chamomile - Calms, softens and soothes
Korean ginseng - Increases cellular energy, stimulates microcirculation
Walnut powder - Mildly abrasive, aids in cell renewal. (Info from  from OLEHENRIKSEN.com)

Directions: Apply to wet skin and massage in circular motions. Rinse with warm water, then apply tonic, crème and eye care. Use two to three times a week in place of your regular cleanser. In cases of excess dirt and oil or makeup, cleanse with your regular cleanser first.  (Info from  from OLEHENRIKSEN.com)

Price: $24 / 720 rub. for 1.7 oz. / 50 g. You can purchase it on-line at OLEHENRIKSEN's website. I was surprised when I found that some of Russian beauty supply stores sell this scrub for $70.5 / 2116 rub. And the most interesting part is that people buy products at such high prices...

My experience: OLEHENRIKSEN Walnut Complexion Scrub comes in a sleek jar with a bright label.

  OLEHENRIKSEN Walnut Complexion Scrub / the package

First time I opened the jar I wanted to eat this scrub! It smells so delicious!

The texture is creamy with the multiple visible particles. I believe they are Walnut Shell Powder. Even if they are a little too big to be 'powder'.

The scrub foams when contacted with water. Despite the big size of the scrubbing particles, they don't scratch the skin. Generally,  OLEHENRIKSEN Walnut Complexion Scrub doesn't irritate even the most sensitive skin. It never makes the skin dry and / or dehydrated. It just leaves you with glowing skin that feels baby soft to the touch.

As for its cleansing properties, it does this job really good. It exfoliates keratinous skin cells and cleanses blackheads leaving the skin luminous and visibly clean.

And last but not least - you need only a little bit of the product per use. On the above photo you can see the amount I need to do my whole face. Yes! So little! So the 1.7 oz. / 50 g jar will last for a long long time!

In conclusion  I must say that I would highly recommend this scrub to everyone! I can't tell you how much I love this scrub! When my mother-in-law visits us and decides to stay for a couple of days she usually comes up to me and asks: "May I use that wonderful scrub?" She loves it too)  LOL
