JL Formulations Natural Spa Skin Scrub Review

This is a review of JL Formulations Natural Spa Skin Scrub: First of all who are JL Formulations?

JL Formulations was set up by a lady called Joan Robertson who is passionate that her beauty and skin care products should be natural and therefore derived from natural sources, Joan being an animal lover wanted all her products to be cruelty free, this was high on her list if not her most important concern when developing them

As well as being cruelty free the importance of the products being bio-degradable was essential, there was huge media coverage about toxic micro beads that were ingredients in a lot of beauty scrubs and products a few year back, Joan had already ensured that her scrubs would only include natural ingredients which therefore also dissolved naturally

Lets Begin

I started off by removing all my make up from the day and covering my face entirely with the product, I did only start with just a pea sized amount as I wasn’t too sure how much would be required as the instructions say ‘a small amount‘ and as I felt I needed more, I added more and worked that in as I went along

I worked the product all over my face in circular motions using my finger tips, no need for any brushes or applicators your fingers are the best tool for this. As I was applying the product I could feel the grains on my skin, its not too harsh or unpleasant but helps with the massage sensation as the product is being applied and is rather enjoyable

The sweet aroma the product has is rather delightful, a Vanilla and Honey scent serenades you as you apply the cream which makes the exfoliation even more enjoyable

Once you are satisfied you have covered your entire face you need to ensure it is washed off thoroughly, make sure all traces are removed and the product is cleaned off using plenty of water

I hopped into the shower and washed my face and carried on with the rest of my cleaning routine including washing my hair

The results are instant, your skin feels so fresh and incredibly smooth straight away

I did get a tiny bit of redness, blotches on one of my cheek bones, that is likely to be where I massaged it a bit too rough in that area as you need to make sure you apply an appropriate amount of pressure with your fingers otherwise you can feel the scratch of the amber grains

The next morning my face was still feeling extremely fresh, there was no unpleasant-ness whatsoever, the slight redness on my cheek bone had also gone entirely and my skin was smooth and super soft

After Affects

I also found applying my primer and foundation the following day was a lot smoother and generally my complexion was brighter

The results lasted about 5 days however, I do wear make up daily and some days quite heavy make up so if you don’t typically wear much make up you would probably feel the results lasting longer than I did

I love facials and often have them as part of my self love days where I get my nails or hair done but actually I got exactly the same results with this product

The website says its a daily scrub but I haven’t been using it daily as I really don’t feel I need to, which is great because I get to maintain the benefits of using the scrub over a longer period of time

Would happily recommend it all skin types without hesitation, I believe you cant use it if you suffer from Rosacea

Looking forward to trying what else JL Formulations have for optimum healthy skin

    Good to see more natural products being used I wish I had used less chemicals on my skin when I was younger

    I use a daily scrub so would like to try this one to compare it with the one I use. I like the fact it has honey as that is one of what I call my fabulous four- Honey, Garlic, Ginger and Olive Oil. I believe a diet , skin and hair regime using all of the four in some way keeps a body healthy inside and out .
