Review: WARDAH Facial Scrub & Moisturizer Gel

2:30:00 PM

Wardah is a relatively new Indonesian brand that is already popular with Indonesian women. One of their campaign is "Halal cosmetics". Ever since their first launch, Wardah has successfully created a hype with great reviews on their skincare as well as makeup range. Their price is on the affordable side, and they have a signature green-ish blue color packaging.

I haven't tried their makeup yet because I haven't been able to find a lipstick shade that I want in my nearest Wardah counter (at a supermarket nearby). I've been looking for their orange shade lipstick because I've heard that it's a complimenting coral color for tan skin, but I've been to my nearest Wardah counter a couple of times and haven't been able to found one yet.

So anyway, this review will be about their Moisturizer Gel and Facial Scrub. I actually owned these stuffs since several months ago but I've been switching my products lately so these don't get to be used that often until recently.

Wardah Facial Scrub is a daily face wash with light consistency.  It is a light scrub with PH balance so you can use it daily if you want.  

On the tube it says that the mild surfactants and scrubs will not stripped moisture from the skin. So far, this is true. My skin does not feel dry or tight whenever I use this facial scrub.

The texture is similar to a thick lotion but with tiny little green dots in it which is actually the scrub. The scrub itself is very mild, you won't feel any harshness at all. So if you're looking for facial scrubs with "real scrubbing" feeling, or if you prefer to "feel the scrubs" on your skin, then this is not for you.

The ingredients:

Having a mild formula means this facial scrub is safe enough and comfortable enough for daily usage. It won't break your skin because of the mild formula. 

I did feel some freshness on my face right after using it, and it leaves my skin feeling clean and moist too. So far, I like it and am still using it alternately with my other face scrubs. 

Now on to the next product:

Wardah Moisturizer Gel is a daily moisturizer for your face. It contains Pro Vitamin B5 and Vitamin E, as well as Chamomile Extract. 

On the tube it says: "for silky matte looking skin" - however it doesn't do very well for my oily combination skin. My face doesn't stay matte and it will be oily again in a few hours.

I also don't really fond of the texture which is kinda like a very thick colored gel that feels very wet on the skin, therefore I always have to wait for several extra minutes until the gel is fully absorbed by my skin before continuing with my makeup. And that is a hassle for me, because most of the time I'm always in a hurry when applying my makeup.

So this moisturizer is uncomfortable to wear during hot weather because I found it over-moisturizing for my combo skin. So my solution is to wear this for night cream as my skin tends to be drier at night because of the air conditioner in my room. 

The other way is to use this moisturizer in colder days like these rainy season we're having currently. Because in colder weather our skin tends to get less oily and prone to dryness. 

So far, I'm liking it as my moisturizer for colder days or colder temps. It's very moisturizing and I think this would be great for those who have dry skin or dry combination skin as well.

The ingredients:

Overall, I think these two products have great quality compared to the cheap prices. All Wardah products are mostly affordable, and they are easy to get. You can find them in supermarket racks or beauty counter at the mall. They also have various range and products to choose from. 

I'm still curious with the orange shade lipstick and other Wardah products as well. Some of the beauty bloggers raved about their body scrubs but I haven't tried that yet because in the mean time I still have many body scrubs on my vanity. Maybe the next time I'll go to supermarket I'll try something else from Wardah ;)
 Stay tune!
