I would say that this is more moisturizing than a scrub, but there are scrubbing particles, but it also has a lot of oil, due to it the skin turns out to be very moisturized, after a shower you do not use cream. If you are more of a skin lifter, then this product is not for you. For light exfoliation and hydration it works great.
I needed some time to appreciate this new product from Whamisa. I agree with the last review that the “scrub” part is a bit misleading. The directions were simple but I felt I was doing it wrong or missing something. Finally, I just followed the directions but in this way: after skin is clean, turned off the shower, rubbed the scrub on the body starting at the roughest spots like heels and worked my way to the neck -gives a chance for the “melting” process to take place (and a good time to let any conditioner set in the hair) - keep it on a little longer if you wish, then rinse.
I found my skin came out very soft and silky feeling with no need to apply lotion afterwards. I learned awhile back that Korean skincare wasn’t much into the abrasive scrubs that we have in the west and many of the exfoliating products are more cream based. It reminds me of the classic Charmzone control cream.
I am on the fence on this new product. I was super excited, since I have been looking for a good scrub with clean ingredients that is not full of drain-clogging sand. This is very thick and creamy, and I found it easier to take the cap off to get it out of the larger hole in the tube itself. I turned off the water and applied it to damp skin. It does not lather, as stated, so keep that in mind. The scent is fresh but not as nice as the algae toner. I would say that the "scrub" part--the granules--is maybe 25% of the cream, so that is my main disappointment. Not very "scrubby". Due to the moisturizing ingredients, it does not rinse off completely like a lathering product would. This did help my skin feel better after the shower though, so it wasnt as much a deal breaker as I thought it would be. Overall, it is OK, but I will likely keep on searching...
