Review of Ikhala Smooth Face Scrub
Working through quite a backlog of shaving products. Got samples of Ikhala from Kevin Jackson of the Chicago men's grooming store Manifold back in December and I'm embarrassed to say we're just getting to them now.
First up, a reminder. Ihkala is "a luxury skin care line developed specifically for men of African descent." They've also got a great commitment to people. A percentage of sales of Ikhala goes to help rural South African farmers who provide some of the ingredients. See our original post for more info.
Razor bumps and ingrown hairs occur in a higher percentage of African-American males than others. Ikhala's Smooth Face Scrub is one great way to combat that. Exfoliation
[...] deep cleanses pores and gently exfoliates by removing dead cells, leaving the skin looking clean, healthy and revitalized
I found Ikhala's Smooth Face Scrub to work great. I'm not their target demographic, so I'm really not best suited to make a judgment. But I liked that the grit in Ikhala's scrub wasn't too coarse, so I didn't feel like I was scratching my face. Also, the smell is totally unique in facial products I've tried. Kind of reminded my of a nice old leather sofa. Seriously.
Ikhala's Smooth Face Scrub is $18 for a 5oz tube.

You should try the Rooibos Face Scrub from the Made from Earth product line....here's what it did for me:
I used to have acne in junior and high school, but 10 years after graduation I didn't think it would come back just because I got pregnant. I sure was WRONG! My acne first trimester was so horrible even my husband couldn't deny it any longer. I wish I could say that the Made from Earth Rooibos Face scrub is a miricle product and it cleared up my acne completely and immediately, but the truth is that is took a few weeks and it cleared about 50% in the first couple of weeks. But after months of NOTHING working I was very pleased!
I've bought another jar after my first one ran out and though my skin is better - MUCH BETTER. It is very gentle and doesn't irritate the skin in any way whatsoever - which i think is what was causing my breakouts - because I have VERY sensitive skin. Plus--it's the only safe acne wash I've found that actually has acne fighting ingredients.
