The Reason Why Your Skincare Products Is NOT Effective + Product Review; Eden Apricot Scrub - Lydia's Chronicle

Hello,
How is your week going? Good I hope!
This is my first my product review post,yay!
I chose to review a body scrub because exfoliation is a very important part of general skincare routine for all skin types.
I used to suffer from dull unhealthy skin,until I learnt about exfoliation some years back. It amazes me,how most people still don’t know how important it is to incorporate exfoliation into their skincare routine.
Exfoliation is the removal of the dead skin cells sitting on the skin’s outermost surface.

This means that when you don’t exfoliate, all the skin treatments,lotions,serums etc that you use are just going on top of the dead cells and not penetrating into your skin. Little wonder why you feel like those products don’t work.
Here’s a practical illustration;
Bola and Bisi are friends.
Bola exfoliates regularly, Bisi doesn’t .
Bola and Bisi use the same body lotion at same time.
Bola is likely to get better results than Bisi. This because the product  penetrates through Bola’s skin. While it stays on top of Bisi’s dead skin cells.
Same product, exfoliation/no-exfoliation, different results…. you get?
However you should avoid over exfoliating.
There are various ways to exfoliate the skin and the use of body scrubs is one of them.
Please note; Exfoliation is not limited to the females alone, therefore body scrubs are essential for both men and women.
So now we dive into the product review….

MY REVIEW
This scrub comes in two cup sizes,the big one 474g, and the small one 227g/8 oz.
I got the small size which happens to be 8 oz.
How I use:
1. I rinse my face with warm(not hot) water.
2. I don’t dry my skin after rinsing,I just apply product and massage in a circular motion (you don’t need too much product to do the work).
3. I leave for like 5-10 mins (personal choice)
4. I rinse off the product with warm water
5. Then pat dry and moisturize
Observations:
Well my face feels clean and smooth. It doesn’t strip my face of any moisture whatsoever,but rather reveals a fresh  smooth skin.
~~~> Pros 
• It keeps to its promise stated earlier.
(I don’t know about the removing of blackheads part because I don’t have black heads) but it did exfoliate my skin real well.
• It is mild,therefore suitable for most skin types.
• It is economical and budget-friendly
You can this small size(227g) for #500-#700 depending on where you’re buying it, it’s available in most stores. However it’s about #1500-#3000 online (I wonder why things are ridiculously expensive online).
• It is not limited to the face. I use on my body,even on my lips. Yass!
~~~>Cons
• I don’t really like the packaging (it’s not sealed). But when I compare the pricing to how well the product works, I think I can cope with the packaging.
In CONCLUSION;
This product is really worth buying,I have no regrets at all. This is actually the second cup I’m using. I’m getting addicted to this scrub,because it works well,and it’s really making me reluctant to try another.

PS; I noticed that the ingredients are quite similar to that of St.Ivesapricot scrub.
