[JUNGLE BOTANICS] Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub: Review



Hello Lovelies!

Guess who's finally back! did any of you miss me? I guess nobody did... *pouts*
I feel like all I've been doing for this last couple of months is reading novels and taking exams without studying enough (I TOTALLY blame sir Rob aka Rob Thier for writing such amazing life ruining stories) which led to retaking some of them again *phew* but now finally, exams are over, I'm kinda satisfied with my results and I finally got over my bitter I'm-not-interested-in-anything-anymore mood.

and when I was thinking about what product should I review next (I have twenty something products that are still wating for their turn to be reviewed... a though choice right?) when WISHTREND contacted me and asked me If I am interested in being one of the first ones to try one of Jungle Botanics products, and write a honest review about it.


Description and claims:
The “Natural Body Glow Nutshell Scrub” is a body scrub that contains finely ground walnut shell granules
and various natural oils from the jungle. The round-cut granules do not irritate your skin,
but gently exfoliates and purifies, leaving your skin healthy, smooth, and glowing.


Volume:
 250ml


Ingredients:
Water, Juglans Regia (Walnut) Shell Powder, Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Glycerin, TEA-Lauryl Sulfate, Propylene Glycol Laurate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Fragrance, PEG-40 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Oleyl Alcohol, Sodium Chloride, Cocamide DEA, Triethanolamine, PEG-7 Glyceryl Cocoate, Carbomer, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride, Zea Mays (Corn) Starch, Sucrose, Microcrystalline Cellulose, Mannitol, Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Pentaclethra macroloba seed oil, Garcinia Indica Seed Butter, Bertholletia Excelsa Seed Oil, Astrocaryum Murumuru Seed Butter, Tocopheryl Acetate, Titanium Dioxide, Mica, Butylene Glycol, Origanum Vulgare Leaf Extract, Ocimum Basilicum (Basil) Extract, Moringa Oleifera Leaf Extract, Malpighia Emarginata (Acerola) Fruit Extract, Gaultheria Procumbens (Wintergreen) Leaf Extract, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Extract, Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Extract, Crocus Sativus Flower Extract, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Fruit Extract, Citrus Aurantium Amara (Bitter Orange) Flower Extract, Achillea Millefolium Flower Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Prunus Persica (Peach) Kernel Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Macadamia Integrifolia Seed Oil, Hippophae Rhamnoides Oil, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Gossypium Herbaceum (Cotton) Seed Oil, Euterpe Oleracea Fruit Oil, Camellia Japonica Seed Oil, Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Pseudozyma Epicola/Soybean Flour/Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil Ferment Filtrate, Tin Oxide, Ethylhexylglycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Sodium Benzoate, CI 77491

So according to COSDNA here, this scrub has many good ingredients, but there also some not so safe ones such as Cocamide DEA, which might be irritating to some of you, but I think that it won't do any harm as long as you don't use it on your face. So please keep in mind that this is strictly a body scrub that shouldn't be used on your face, at all.


How to use:

1) Squeeze moderate amount of product onto wet skin and massage in circular motion. Rinse thoroughly with water.
2) Recommended use: 2-3 times a week


Packaging:
It comes in a large 250ml squeezable tube which means it's more hygienic than scrubs (or any product) that come in jars, and its glossy beach themed colors only make it more appealing. its hole is large enough to squeeze the the right amount of product, whitout being too large to end up with more product than required.

Scent and texture:
When I first opened the tube, I was expecting a strong fake walnuts scent, but was surprised and kinda confused when I was met with a sweet scent that's kinda similar to Argan Oil. Combined with its brownish color and extremely granular texture, it made me think about Moroccan Amlou the whole time I was using it (for my non Moroccan readers, amlou is a spreadable past that is made of Almonds, honey and Argan oil, and it's reaaaaaally yummy)

Performance:

Surprisingly, this scrub's tiny teeny granules did actually scrub my dead cells away while still being gentle on my skin (they absolutely did a better job than those scrubs with large granules, a thing that I didn't expect), it also didn't dry my skin out but instead left it really smooth and soft afterwards thanks to all those vegetable oils included in the ingredients, it also kinda helped with the few spots in my shins where I have keratosis pilaris (don't expect anything miraculous if you have it in large areas, that way you won't be disappointed)
I was also worried that I might need a large quantity of product to scrub my whole body (I was honestly expecting the tube to last for merely a week or two to be honest) but a little amount was more than enough, which is always an added bonus.



Summary




Pros:


- it gets the exfoliation done asap
- Lovely Hygienic packaging
- Leaves my dry skin soft and smooth
- Uses actual walnut granules as its exfoliator


Cons:


- some not so safe ingredients
