Hello Everyone!

This is the first Review post of this year, so I thought lets make it about skin care. I got this SaND for Soapaholics Totally Peanuts Face Cleanser in one of my FabBags. Its more of a scrub than a cleanser. So let's see how this product fared on my skin.

My Thoughts on the Product:

The product comes in a mustard coloured, plastic tub with a screw-on cap. I have not tested if the cap is leak-proof, so I cannot really comment on that bit. The moment you open the tub, a pleasant aroma of patchouli and basil greet you. The product colour is a pretty brownish pink.  The formula is rich and thick and is packed with peanut powder. The product is full of natural goodness, if you read the ingredient list. All ingredients are natural and have no nasties like artificial preservatives, parabens and phthalates!

The grains of the scrub itself are soft and do not feel abrasive on the skin, though they help exfoliate quite well. My skin feels fresh after every use! I see no redness after scrubbing my face with 'Totally Peanuts'. My skin feels smooth and hydrated after use.  I have had oily skin for most of my life, but lately, I feel a lot of dryness, and the cold weather does not help much. But this product has been a game changer. I'm in love!


Pros: 

  1. Simple packaging. I love this because it means less pressure on the environment.
  2. Full of natural goodness.
  3. No parabens, artificial colouring, perfume or phthalates.
  4. Pleasant smell.
  5. Soft scrub particles.
  6. Exfoliates effectively.
  7. Does not leave skin red and raw. 
  8. Does not dry out skin surface.
Cons: 
Can't think of any!!

Overall Verdict: 5/5! I love the fact that the product is absolutely natural with no artificial preservatives. Which is why all the products have a very short shelf life. So most of their products come in three sizes 30 gms, 50 gms and 100 gms.
