Shahnaz Husain’s Shascrub and Natures Gold Skin Radiance Gel-Review

Shahnaz Husain and her range of products are considered to be the ultimate of beauty and skin care in India. Atleast it was like that a few years ago. Even now, in smaller towns, Shahnaz Parlours are a rage and considered to be the ultimate..You must be wondering why such a long introduction. Well I am coming to it. Here I am going to review 2 products from that range which I bought some time back.

ShaScrub

Face & Body Scrub
What the product claims:
      Indications

This cream has natural scrub particles of Walnut, Date extract, Coconut & Lemon Oil, which provide intensive deep pore cleansing, leaving the skin cleaner and brighter.

Method of Use

Gently rub on skin for 5 to 10 minutes, using circular movements. Wash off.

Review

The product seems like a very creamy scrub which has a pearlescent texture and with even granules of Walnut or whatever. I used the product as per the instruction and wash it off and what do I see? My skin feels so taut and dry. Now let me give you a little background on this. I regularly exfoliate my skin and have used the mildest Everyuth scrub to St.Ives to Himalaya Herbals Exfoliator and also Aroma Magic Mineral Scrub.. None of these products have left my skin so dry. My skin did feel squeaky clean, but it was not a nice clean feeling. It felt like I washed my face with detergent rather than a scrub. I still harbored hopes and continued using it. After many usages, my skin reacted to the product in the same way as before and I knew it was definitely not my skin having PMS, but the product. But I had spent a whopping amount of INR 235 for 40 gms of it and how could I throw it away. After much thought, it went to my pedicure kit and one session of home pedicure and it was over..Thank God!!

The fragrance is quite strong in notes of Coconut and Lemon(smells more like synthetic lemongrass than original EO).
