Product Review: Mizon Seaweed Jelly Scrub
If you’re looking for an exfoliator with beads or granules, the Mizon Seaweed Jelly Scrub is not for you. If you’re looking for something that is ultra gentle but still effectively removes dead skin cells, then you may love the Mizon Seaweed Jelly Scrub. Let’s talk about the three ingredients in this exfoliator that make it unique and help get rid of the dry skin flakes revealing new skin underneath for a clearer complexion:
Rice Powder - this ingredient has been commonly used in Asian cultures throughout history as a beauty aid that comes from nature. Rice has anti-inflammatory and skin brightening properties and helps with diminishing the signs of aging and oil absorption. Rice powder itself can be mixed with sugar and oil to create a body scrub on its own. As an ingredient in this MIzon Seaweed Jelly Scrub, it acts an exfoliant in addition to helping skin look its best.
- Seaweed - It sounds odd but seaweed is actually great for your skin because it is rich in minerals and vitamins and, similar to rice, has anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties. It helps soothe and protect skin with its high antioxidant content and accelerates the process by which skin repairs itself. You’ll be able to see the bits of seaweed extract in this exfoliant so you know that it’s doing its job.
- Konjac - Have you heard of the konjac sponge? These gentle sponges are all the rage in Asia as exfoliators and this Mizon Seaweed Jelly Scrub has konjac in it to help slough away dead skin. Made from the konjac plant’s porous roots, they exfoliate ever so gently to help reveal newer skin underneath.
We love that the Mizon Seaweed Jelly Scrub uses ingredients from nature to help you look your best. Use this exfoliator 2-3 times a week, as needed, and apply to cleansed and towel-dried skin. As you apply the scrub to you skin and massage, you can feel the bits of rice powder and konjac, which are the agents that help exfoliate. The bits of green are the seaweed extract, which again, has great benefits to skin.
The smell is earthy and the texture is like a loose gel so it's easy to massage into your skin. Rinse off after about a minute of working into your skin and feel how smooth your face is now that the Seaweed Jelly Scrub has removed the excess dead skin cells. Your skin will look and feel more clarified without the harsh beads and granules found in a lot of other exfoliators.
