BEAUTY ALMANAC TESTED


USE: Billy Jealousy Sucker Punch facial scrub is best used 2-3 times a week at most as an addition to regular facial cleansing. Tahitian Volcanic Black Sand & Crushed Walnut Shell scrub away dirt, blackheads and dead surface skin cells while neem extract serves as an herbal cleanser and skin conditioner. White & Green Tea extracts act as antioxidants to help protect the skin from environmental and endogenous damages, and Vitamins E & C nourish the skin while improving luminosity and elasticity.

AROMA & TEXTURE: Sucker Punch offers a mild, herbal/menthol aroma that doesn't linger after use; no additional "fragrance" is added. The texture is quite gritty thanks to the combination of both sand and walnut and should not be used on skin with active acne.

PACKAGING: Simple white, recyclable, squeeze-tube packaging.

INGREDIENTS: Water, Bentonite, Alumina, Juglans Regia Shell Extract (Walnut), Glycerin, Cetearyl Alcohol, Ceteareth 20, Cetyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, PEG 100 Stearate, Glycine Soja Oil (Soybean), Polysorbate 80, Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate (Vitamin C), Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Oryza Sativa Bran Oil (Rice), Triticum Vulgare Germ Oil (Wheat), Melia Azadirachta Leaf Extract, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Camellia Oleifera Leaf Extract, Panax Ginseng Root Extract, Anthemis Nobilis Flower Extract, Lavandula Angustifolia Oil (Lavender), Eucalyptus Globulus Oil, Mentha Piperita Leaf Oil (Peppermint), Citrus Aurantium Bergamia Oil (Bergamot), Melaleuca Alternifolia Oil (Tea Tree), Rosmarinus Officinalis Leaf Oil (Rosemary), Menthol, Citric Acid, Xanthan Gum, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol, DMDM Hydantoin, Chlorophyllin Copper Complex.

PROS & CONS: As the product is intended to be used infrequently, a single tube lasts quite a while; I use the product about twice a week and have had my tube for about 6 months now and probably have only used about half of it. I also love the array of natural oils and extracts included in the formula, allowing the product to not just exfoliate but stimulate and moisturize as well. Billy Jealousy products are easy to find both online and in major department stores such as Nordstrom. Billy Jealousy product are cruelty free and vegan. The texture takes a little getting used to as it is quite coarse.

WHERE CAN I BUY IT? At $18 USD for 3 ozs, the price is about twice the cost of a drugstore brand exfoliant, but then again, not every product bring Tahiti to your shower.
