I was never going to even mention these on here until me and Halima started discussing them on Twitter.
Two out of the three were still in working condition, the third looked like this:
I have used the Walnut Face and Body Scrub a fair few times and I think it's review worthy now..
I have combination skin (oily in the t zone, normal everywhere else) and getting a good facial scrub can be difficult. You want a difference but you don't want over-stripping so your skin goes on a sebum producing frenzy.
This smells like lemons, not synthetic lemons, not lemons in a cheesecake but lemons like they squeeze on your rice in an Indian restaurant..which is something Indians never do at home. It's a nice smell but all I have in the back of my head is "rice, rice, rice".
It fared very well on my face, I put a little bit on and smoothed it out, it spread very well over my face and allowed me to exfoliate in the way that I think is proper. It was creamy, but not overly so.
The best thing about it was the fact that washing it off was easy. A lot of the time I find that creamy scrubs are hard to properly wash off your face without getting a tiny bit annoyed. This washed off brilliantly with no extra effort at all.
Every time I use it, I notice that my skin looks cleaner and my pores are clean. It doesn't make me even oilier than when I started out and it makes my skin soft. It also makes my hands soft which is something a facial scrub has never done before.
I don't know how much it retails for in the UK but I have seen it sold in some Tescos and it is definitely available in the Indian shops. If you can't find one and want to try it, let me know and I'll be able to pick you one up, no trouble!
I currently only have a microdermabrasion scrub for my face so I'm going to buy the Shahnaz one and use them in conjunction, that's what I've been doing so far and my skin has really perked up.
Then we have this..
I don't know how I feel about this. It's a solidy "treatment" which has difficulty transforming into liquid when it's rubbed on your face.
I followed the directions and then decided to take it off with a muslin cloth.
It made my skin feel really soft..then ten minutes later it was really hot. That passed and it went back to normal.
This didn't really do much for my skin so I'll give it a miss.
Thus, in conclusion..scrub - good, skin nourishing treatment - not impressed.
