Product Review: Queen Helene Refining Pomegranate and Raspberry Natural Facial Scrub (Old Look).

What a mouthful lol!

Hey hey hey!

Good morning sunshine, slept well?

So my major goal for 2016 is to have a skincare regimen (raise your hand if you don’t have a skincare regimen yet) but that goal came earlier than expected when I started to have unnecessary pimples and dry patches on my face sometime in November/December 2015 so by December 2015 I delved into my Beauty Therapy Facials course and reminded myself of how to take good care of my face, following the instructions mapped out my instructor (how can I be a certified beauty therapist and not know what do to about my breakouts? side eye) and took it upon my self by fire by force to have a skincare regimen, not only to treat the pimples but for better and younger looking skin because we’re not growing any younger really.

I’m going to be reviewing products I’m trying and are currently working for me, I’d do a full post on my skincare regimen once I get some of the products on my wishlist and I’d be a lab rat for you so you’d know if the product is a good buy or a waste.

This is me holding hands with you and saying bye bye to ‘no skincare regimen’ and yes to ‘simple skincare regimen’ in 2016, yay!

Enough chit chat, let’s get into the review for today.

Consistency: Light.

Price: 800n – 2500n (It’s ridiculously more expensive online)

Where To Buy: Local supermarket, Jumia, Queen Helene Store.

How I Use:

After cleansing, on slightly moist/damp face, I apply this scrub in circular motions starting from my cheeks.

Rinse with tap water.

When I first got this product I scrubbed morning and night daily, but currently I use this scrub every other day, once a day: if I use it today, next time will be in two days time.


  • Very affordable and readily available.
  • It does make my skin feel softer and smoother as promised.
  • I like the packaging, easy to use.
  • A little goes a long way, it gets the job done.
  • It doesn’t have a drying finish, it’s quite moisturizing.


  • If you work in faster circular motions, you might find the beads a bit too harsh.
  • It feels quite tingly when you use it for the first time.
  • I haven’t noticed any radiance as promised but that’s not my major concern.

Will I Buy Again?

Yes, I love this scrub so much and I will gladly recommend, it’s very affordable.

Have you used this particlucar scrub? Do you love/hate it?

Have a wonderful day!
