Hey there ladies!! I adhere to a CTM routine rather diligently but as I have combination skin that tends to attract blackheads and pollution-related goop, I am rather addicted to scrubbing too. I picked this scrub specifically as it was meant for combination skin. Want to know whether it’s an aye or a naye? Read on…

In Detail Natio Young Polish Pore Unclogging Face Scrub Review and My Experience
I am scrub obsessed. I have used so many, from expensive to the cheap. This falls into the “less expensive” category. I love the formula. The texture of the scrub is gel-like. The base is transparent with tiny white scrubbing granules. They are pretty similar to pounded soft sugar both in terms of look and feel. This is probably the mildest scrub I have come across in a very long time. It doesn’t feel like a scrub at all. I am fond of scrubbing almost on a daily basis – so the mildness is an asset and definitely works for me. Every day things like smog in the air or dirt on your hands that can be transferred to your face can leave your skin feeling very unhealthy. The scrub washes away all of this and is a perfect refreshment for your skin.
The skin does not feel stretchy or dry after using the scrub. People with sensitive skin might use it as regular scrub as it is very mild and more like a cleansing gel. Ah yes, it also turns into a lather – which is an added bonus.
The product has a fresh citrusy scent to it – definitely an instant mood enhancer. The packaging is pretty matte mint green which is soothing to the eyes. There is a freshness in the colour. The cap is a simple flip top one which serves the purpose well. The flip cap and the slender tube packaging make the product travel friendly.
How I Use it
I always steam my face with a warm wash cloth – I simply soak a wash cloth in slightly hotter than warm water and spread it on my face for 2 minutes after wringing it out. This increases the efficacy of the scrub as steaming opens the pores and it becomes easier to clean the dirt.
The natural exfoliating grains pick up where cleansers leave off. The face scrub gently purifies and helps minimise the appearance of pores for smooth soft skin and a glowing complexion. A foaming gel exfoliator, the Natio Young Pore Unclogging Face Scrub fights imperfections to leave your complexion smooth and glowing. Formulated for oily and combination skin types, this scrub refreshes while improving skin’s texture. I love this product. It’s not too abrasive and although the packaging quotes ‘squeaky clean skin’ I haven’t experienced that ‘squeaky clean skin’ which we all hate – the feeling like all moisture has been stripped away, quite the opposite actually. My skin feels smooth and nourished after using this.
Pros of Natio Young Pore Unclogging Face Scrub
• Gentle on skin.
• No parabens.
Cons of Natio Young Pore Unclogging Face Scrub
• Availability is the only point of worry.
• The price could be on the higher side.
Target t-zone trouble spots – forehead, nose and chin. Then freshen up with a toner in the day or moisturizer if you scrub in the night.
4.5/5 (Some people might find its mild nature to be a disadvantage).
