My Beauty Diary Vanilla Souffle Face Scrub why you so cute for?
My Beauty Diary introduced this little face peel a while ago but I never got around to reviewing it. Lucky enough they continue to release cute little skincare products here and there which I’m loving as they originally started out as a line of facial sheet masks only.
The brand is Taiwanese so not readily available at your local CVS but it’s easy enough to locate online for fairly close to retail prices as well as in smaller Asian beauty shops if you live in a heavily Asian populated neighborhood or city.
Let’s take a peek!
They dub this a scrub but it’s actually a peel. Peels and scrubs are technically the same thing in Asia. Many exfoliators on the Asian market come in a gel format of some sort and have a peeling effect versus the grainier scrubs you’d find here in the American market. Cure Natural Aqua Gel is probably one of the most hyped up products in this realm however My Beauty Diary goes with a foaming mousse style formula versus a traditional gel one.
You’ll want to use this on a clean, dry face. I typically wash my face as normal, dry it, and pump out a small bit of foam and apply. You’ll massage it into your skin gently and it’ll begin to peel or pill off in tiny flakes or balls (you can see this in my photos below). Some folks claim this is dead skin cells but personally I think it’s just the how the formula breaks down. If that’s dead skin, whoa is all I can say.
The formula is a foaming mousse that breaks down easily as you massage. It’s supposed to gently exfoliate away dry skin but sadly it doesn’t quite work as well as Cure’s Natural Aqua Gel. It leaves my skin very tight after use as well.
I do recommend it for oily, sensitive skin as it’ll mattify as well as gently exfoliate your skin without the harsher grainier texture other exfoliates have.
I was a little disappointed it didn’t smell like Vanilla Souffle! It’s simply a fresh scent.
Overall, it’ll work a treat for oily, sensitive skin but drier skin will definitely need a facial scrub with more power.
