When I was still ipsy member, I ordered one of oil serum product which is from clariSEa. I got a discount because I joined ipsy. The oil serum price was around us$15 but because I got the discount I paid $7 only. Anyway, the package come and clariSEA sent me a bonus product which is ClariSEA Sea Salt Solution. They sent me in the trial size which is much enough for me to use it. ClariSEA Sea Salt Solution is a face scrub from sea salt and bamboo charcoal, and here is my ClariSEA Sea Salt Solution review.




The Ingredients

The very first time I receive this product I looked at the back of it. It said that the product is cruelty-free and vegan. When I see this kind of words I’m feeling like an angel. LOL.

The ingredients are 100% natural and you can spell it. They are sea salt, mineral salt, sweet almond powder, activated bamboo charcoal powder. When you use or apply something for your self and you know what they are, you will feel no guilt about it. You all can read the ingredients without look twice or read it slowly right.

The Texture

clarisea-sea-salt-solution-texture

The salt is very fine. I used to use salt from my kitchen and it is way different from this sea salt. I don’t know if they make it finer or it is the actual texture of sea salt, but the thing is it is so fine. The black color of it I assume is from the activated charcoal. It has no scent just like neutral. The fine texture doesn’t mean it is like all-purpose flour, but it still coarse enough to scrub our skin.

This scrub will make your skin feel some kind of sore maybe because of the salt. But it will be gone once you rinse it. Because of this sore-feeling, I didn’t use it until my hormonal acne gone. Now my skin is calmer, that’s why I can use it again. I can tell the difference after I scrub my skin using this, especially around my lips area. My skin around my lips was like a porcupine before, it was so rough. After I scrubbed with this product it was kind of strange because around my lips becomes smooth. LOL




How To Use It

At the back of this product said that the direction is to blend the exfoliant with your favorite skin cleanser, rub hands together to mix, adding water as needed, gently scrub onto the skin and rinse. The first time I use it I did as directed, but I feel it’s not that working for me so I do it my way. I wash my face first using the face wash and before I rinse the face wash I apply this sea salt on my face together with the foam.

I don’t use it much, just enough to scrub my face, maybe like 1/4 of the cap. I always put the salt on the cap first before I apply it onto my skin to prevent the salt too much on my hand if I directly pour it onto my hand. I use it once a week but if my face is not in a good mood a.k.a acne-mode I don’t use it, because it will be so sore and I can’t handle it.

Final Thought

Well, there is a pro and cons about this product. The pros are this is natural, vegan and work on my skin without making my skin dry or making my skin breakout after using it. The cons are this product makes my skin feel sore even I don’t have open wound or acne even not that painful.




Alright, that’s all my ClariSEA Sea Salt Solution Review, I still love this product and maybe will purchase the full-size package later on. How about you guys? What face scrub do you like? Let me know in the comment below, maybe I can try the same face scrub as yours. xoxo

Face scrub is good to exfoliate our skin and make the skin smoother. In the market there are lots of face scrubs products from the high prices to the low price, for me I prefer more to the lower price as long as it works. Here are the cheap face scrubs that actually works.




face scrub from equate beauty medicated apricot cleanser 

First thing first, this product can be misleading for some people because they use “cleanser” word instead of “face scrub”. This product totally just for face scrub means you can’t use it for daily. By the way, Equate beauty apricot face scrub is one of my favorite commercial face scrubs because from the price wise it is so cheap for a big packaging like this, and because it’s just for scrubbing your face you should not use it every day. Use this once a week with a penny size amount onto your hand then scrub your wet face gently. And because we just use it once a week, it lasts forever. I got this for $1.97.

It has big sand in it, and I don’t think for people with sensitive or dry skin will be good for using this product. For my skin, it does work since I have quite rough skin type (LOL). I really feel it works because I scrub it around my lips which is the worst area of whitehead and it is so bumpy there. After I scrubbed with this, the area around my lips and chip become so smooth and I never have that smooth before. So happy! 

Equate beauty apricot cleanser also has salicylic acid in it which helps to fight acne and oily skin. Wow isn’t it? The first time I got this from Walmart I felt like I hit the jackpot. It is cheap and works. What else you need, if you got those two!  If you know about St. Ives apricot face scrub, this product is a dupe of that.




face scrub from Clarisea Sea salt solution

The second face scrub I really like too is from clariSEA sea salt solution. I got this free from the serum I purchased. I like it so much, not only because I got it free but because it works. I ever tried salt face scrub before, and it melted even before I apply to my face, but this one is a holy grail product. We just need to use it in penny amount and scrub it all over the face. For some people who have active acne or sensitive skin, I don’t recommend you to use this product, because it is literary salt which can be painful if it touches an open wound, even after I scrub my skin that has no wound or active acne I still feel the stinging sensation (but I don’t mind with that).

Deep Pore Detox Activated Charcoal Exfoliating Mask

The texture of is not as big as equate beauty apricot cleanser, it just like a fine salt. The direction tells that use this together with the face wash, so my way is I use the face wash first and without cleaning the face wash I apply this face scrub and scrub all over my face till my neck then wash all.

The last but not least is that the clariSEA sea salt solution is cruelty-free which is the best. Hopefully one day everything in this world will be cruelty-free.




Alright, those two are my champion till now. How about you guys? Do you have any recommendation for a face scrub that wants me to try? Let me know in the comment below. xoxo

Some of us must be having trouble with our skin, especially on our face. Every day we use makeup, we go outside, we took a lot of residues from the product we use until the dust that sticks to our face, because of that, our face deserve to have some cares. One of the skin care I like to have every week is scrubbing. This time I’m gonna share you my sugar and honey scrub. One of the benefits of sugar and honey scrub for your glowing face, it is natural and you have it in your kitchen.

Here how we do this:




  • First, wash your face with warm water
  • Prepare sugar and honey in the small bowl (1 tbsp sugar – 1 tbsp honey)
  • Mix the ingredients
  • Scrub your face GENTLY with the sugar and honey scrub, you can also scrub your lips to make it smooth and plump
  • After 1 minutes of scrubbing wash your face with cold water
  • Apply moisturizer of yours




Skincare is used for making our skin healthier. Some people might have sensitive skin but some might have strong skin to be scrubbed even harder. So make sure you do not overdo whatever it is. Here is my video about sugar and honey face scrub you might like to watch.

Hopefully, this skin care routine of mine is helpful for you guys. Just remember do not overdo it, because it can irritate your skin. We want to make our skin glow and healthy not suffered. By the way, thank you for visiting my blog. xoxo
