First product up from the Boot’s Best in Beauty box that I received for my birthday (review coming soon). I’ve already tried this product when it arrived in a Glossybox but for some reason never gave it a review. Probably because Wishful Skincare is owned by Huda Beauty and y’all know my feelings on her.
This is available to purchase from the Huda Beauty website (see here) as well as from Boots (here) and Cult Beauty (here). This is available in three different sizes mini (40ml), full size (100ml) and jumbo (200ml). I was sent the 40ml tube that retails for £18 so it’s not the cheapest. Shipping from Boots and Cult Beauty is fairly quick but I can’t say for ordering direct from Huda.
The packaging is quite simple and sleek although I love the colouring used. The holographic text against the white background looks good. The ingredients list, product benefits and directions of use an be found on the back and sides of the outer box. The scrub itself comes in squeezable tube with a tight cap. I’ve not had any issues with the product leaking. It’s easy to get a small amount out of the tube.
According to the company website, the Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub is an exfoliating facial scrub that is suitable for all skin types. This gentle but powerful scrub is infused with pineapple and papaya enzymes, AHAs and BHAs to leave the skin with a healthy glow. The milky, lightweight texture should gently buff away dead skin cells and impurities for instant glow. It should also re-texturize, brighten and even out your skin tone. According to a promotional video from Huda, the clumping is what’s coming off your skin (dead cells, oils etc).
Ok, despite it being badged as a scrub, it’s not really a scrub containing physical exfoliating ingredients e.g. coffee, seeds. It’s more like a chemical peeling solution which is why it’s gentle on the skin. The formula is quite runny so take care during application. So the first time I used it I was a little put off with the balling. Turns out that those balls are NOT skin but the cellulose in the product clumping together. But it IS meant to do that so don’t panic like I did. The fragrance is pretty strong as with most products from Huda. Not the best, not the worst either.
Honestly I can’t say I’ve seen much difference in my skin after using it regularly for months. Maybe a slight improvement in skin texture but then that could be due to a couple of thing. Immediately after use, my skin felt smooth but quite tight and dry around my cheeks. A healthy dose of moisturizer was needed after use even for my oily skin. It does leave you with a matte finish though there’s no healthy glow. One thing I can say is that this will last you a while as you don’t need to use much. I think my sample size of 10ml lasted me a few months with twice weekly use.
Overall, I’m a little on the meh side for the Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub from Wishful. Did I like it? A bit. Will I repurchase? Probably not. It’s a little too pricey for me when I consider what it does and doesn’t do for me. It’s a good exfoliator that is incredibly gentle on the skin. My skin did feel smooth after use. It is very mattifying, not a hint of the healthy glow and over time has not really improved much. It also felt quite drying to my cheeks.
