Nuance Walnut Facial Scrub Review

If you have been a long time reader of my blog then you probably know I love my Philosophy Skincare products! I stand by Purity Made Simple Cleanser as my holy grail of all cleansers, when paired with the Micro-delivery Exfoliating Wash, it's magic!

I completely believe I achieved great skin with these two products, but I always have one problem with the Exfoliating wash, the granules dissolve way before I'm close to being done with the bottle! This always happens!

I have gone through so many bottles of the exfoliating wash and it's happened every single time! It basically becomes a face wash. This is not cheap so I expect to get full use out of it, but I never can. I always end up finishing the bottle and using up the exfoliate turned face wash and kind of just always brush it off  as no big deal, but it kind of is.

About a month ago my half used bottle of Philosophy Exfoliating wash dissolved yet again, and I needed something right away, so I picked up the Nuance Walnut Facial Scrub while at my CVS.

From the packaging
Finely crushed Walnut Shells gently exfoliate, leaving skin clean, smooth and revitalized. Acai, Annatto Seed & Babassu Oils nourish and help maintain moisture with a non-greasy feel. Caffeine helps firm and tone skin.

I have been using this for the past month and I really like it. It is a bit more abrasive than the Philosophy Exfoliating wash. The Exfoliating wash can be used daily, whereas this one says to use once or twice a week. I guess I'm bad because I use it every other day.

The Walnut Facial Scrub does leave my skin very soft. I haven't had any sort of breakouts or reaction, so it's working out quite well for me.

This is 4oz and I have gone through a third of the bottle already and so far the granules haven't dissolved so I'm happy about that.

The smell is very light natural clean scent, it's not strong at all.

The packaging is in a nice simple squeeze tube, which I like.

I have to say, I'm not trying to slam the Exfoliating wash in any way, because it is a great exfoliate, I just don't like when it dissolves!

The price for the Walnut Facial Scrub is only $7.99 for 4oz which is pretty great deal.

Overall I really like this scrub and would definitely use it again and recommend it to anyone looking for a cheaper alternative for a good scrub.

You can find this at your local CVS or at
