I have a special attitude to this category of funds. It seems to me that a scrub is a tool where you can save money. Because repeatedly I was convinced that the effect of expensive products (Vichy, Avene, Uriage and so on) is no different from more budget brands.
That is why I am pleased to test the scrubs of Ukrainian, Russian and Belarusian production. Moreover, I use them regularly – about 2 times a week, otherwise, as it seems to me, the face looks untidy.
Recently, in the cosmetic shop were discounts on products under the brand Black Pearl. For some reason, this series is associated with age cosmetics, so I purchased a scrub for my mother. But having tested it once, I decided to buy this product myself.
The manufacturer is the Ekaterinburg concern Kalina, which also produces equally famous cosmetic lines. These include my favorite: Pure Line, One Hundred Beauty Recipes, Velvet Pens, Forest Balsam, Drakosh, Little Fairy, etc.
Bio-program – a series that contains natural rejuvenating bio-components. The effectiveness of each product from this line is the result of a unique combination of natural components of triple directional action. These are: vitamins of beauty and youth, active bio-components, combinations of natural oils.
The range of the series rather big – a cream for different types of skin, eyelids, cleansing and toning.
What attracted me to the description of the scrub was the high percentages among those who experienced the remedy. Judge for yourself: in 92% of the skin became smoother, more even and tender; 89% have cleaned pores; 83% evened out and improved complexion! These data are based on the impressions of 100 women.
Moreover, the cost is quite low – a tube with a capacity of 80 ml cost me 60 rubles. (15 UAH).
The font on the tube is very small, which makes reading very difficult. Being accustomed, I managed to find sunflower seed oil, urea, jojoba oil, and panthenol in the composition.
In the description of the product, vitamins A, Eu C are withered, but apparently they are called somehow differently as part of the composition, I found only B5 (it’s panthenol).
The structure of the scrub is thick and cream. A peculiar feature of the tool is the presence of two types of exfoliating granules – small and large. There are a lot of small ones in it, in structure they resemble soda very much, but large ones, blue, are much smaller.
Frankly, this feature is not completely clear to me. It seems to me that small particles are quite enough, and the large ones in the scrub are so small that their presence is not felt at all.
The smell of the scrub, like other products of the Black Pearl line, is quite rich, adult and pleasant. After use on the skin does not remain. Dense texture provides quite economical use.
The skin really becomes very smooth and fresh, the exfoliating particles do not scratch the skin at all, but it is necessary to apply the product on dry areas of the face with caution.
There is no feeling of dryness or tightness. But regarding the purification of pores and the elimination of black spots, the manufacturer got a little excited. However, I have not yet met a scrub that would cope with this task. Moreover, for this purpose there are other effective means.
The combination of price-quality scrub Bio-program Cherniy Pearls is excellent. For a completely low price, you get a quality and effective exfoliating agent. It does not traumatize the skin at all (as I had, for example, with the Scrub of the Pure Line series) and refreshes it perfectly.
