What Nonique says:

This Energy Micro Scrub contains many valuable ingredients from organic farming. Through the combination of the active ingredients from organic noni leaves, organic aloe vera, organic guarana and organic avocado oil your skin and pores are cleansed and refreshed.

The Energy Facial Scrub by Nonique has a scent of passion fruit, mango and grapefruit and is suitable for all skin types.

Activating. Invigorating. Motivating.

A fresh, sporty and refined complexion is an attribute of youth. To maintain this skin condition, the skin needs a lot of moisture. The innovative compounds refresh, instantly moisturize and provide a dynamic and vibrant radiance. Natural stimulants bring the skin back into balance and sustainable features give dehydrated skin a radiant, fresh look.

Application: wet with water, apply the facial scrub, massage gently, let work briefly and then rinse with clear water.

What I say:

My first impression is a good one. I like the very fruity yet slightly bitter scent of the Grapefruit, which I feel is the most dominant scent of this face scrub. In comparison to other peelings I had before, I can barely feel the particles (out of bamboo by the way) used for exfoliation. Let’s see if it will still do a decent job in the long run.

What Superdrug says:

Naturally Radiant Brightening Micro Polish is formulated with a unique energising complex and infused with Kiwi Fruit and Mulberry extracts to help revive skin’s radiance and even out skin tone.

Enriched with Blueberry Seeds and Fruit Acids, this polish exfoliates dead skin cells, helping to refine skin’s texture and clarify skin discolouration for an ultra smooth, luminous complexion.

Infused with plant extracts:

  • Kiwi Fruit extract is a rich source of Vitamin C, which is renowned for its remarkable ability to help brighten and even out skin tone, while also providing antioxidant protection against free radicals.
  • Mulberry Fruit extract has naturally strong brightening properties which can help to reduce discolouration and even out skin tone.
  • Fruit Acids naturally exfoliate and refine the skin’s surface texture.
  • Dermatologically approved.
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans.

What I say:

I like this peeling, the smell is lovely fruity and fresh. If I want to save some money this is certainly a go-to product. I used to have the day and night cream of the same series in the past and really liked it too. If you are looking for an affordable peeling in the drugstore with decent ingredients, you should keep your eyes out for this one.
