My skin has always been trouble some, but one of those things that I know keep breakouts and excess grease and shine at bay, is regular exfoliation, and lately I've been enjoying the Agento Face Scrub. 

Often skincare products are absolutely loaded with ingredients, and most of them you have no idea what are. But Agento skin is different. It is a completely natural face scrub, that is made with natural ingredients, free from artificial fragrances, colourants, harsh solvents and detergents. And also free from those tiny, yet very nasty micro beads which wreck havoc with our marine life. 

Actually, Agento Face scrub is Australian made and owned, and it is designed to remove the layers of dead skin, and then remove oil and grease leaving your skin smooth and clean, and it is made with just four natural ingredients;

  • Pumice - to exfoliate and skin cleanser. Being a volcanic stone it is all natural
  • White Australian clay - for its natural cleansing and healing properties. The Clay draws out grease and dirt from the skin and leaves it feeling soft, and smooth as silk.
  • Sea Salt - to cleanse pores deeply, balance oil production and thwart bacteria that can instigate breakouts and acne. Salt is a gentle natural exfoliate that sloughs off dead skin. It also has minerals to soften skin and restore hydration.
  • Activated Carbon - absorbs dirt and oil and deeply cleanses the skin. Because activated charcoal removes toxins, it can help reduce the instances of acne and other skin impurities you might suffer from. It also works wonders for completely removing makeup

So there you go. Four simple ingredients, that you can actually understand. 

The scrub is powder based, and to apply to wet your face and hands, and then take a spoonful of the scrub (the pack comes with a spoon!), and mix it in your hands into a paste which you then massage into the damp face for about 3o seconds, then leave for about a minute before rinsing off.

Having to mix it up yourself can be a little messy (or perhaps its just me!), but I consequently do like to use it just before the shower, so I can rinse it off there.

The actual scrub is quite grainy, so I would suggest you'd only use it a few times a week, if not just one. And while it feels like a scrub on the skin, the clay contents also means that it doubles as a face mask drawing out any impurities. And always short of time, I do love how quick it is to use, not like one of those masks that you need to leave on for 15+ minutes, which I sadly never seem to have the time for. So that this is so super fast is just perfect for me.

And while it is so quick to use, the results are actually pretty good, as it really leaves my skin feeling so soft and refreshed after each use. And after using it twice a week for a few weeks, what I have particularly noticed is that a couple of areas where I've been struggling with breakouts lately, have cleared up significantly, as well as some scarring and marks from past acne have reduced in appearance too.

My only gripe is the packaging, as I do find the bag the scrub comes in a little tricky to use, which will only get worse as the product is emptying out, so I would have preferred if it had come in a little plastic jar instead.

But apart from that, this really is a great product. It is Aussie, made from natural ingredients that you can actually understand, and it is well priced too. Definitely worth trying.
