The brand is one actually one man Dr Jon Bragi who is one of the worlds leading enzymologists. He has studied the effects of the enzymes for wound healing and arthritis and then he moved onto dermatology and thats when Dr Bragi was created.
These super charged marine enzymes do a whole host of good things for the skin
- Refines skin surface reducing appearance of fine lines
- Improves skin texture, firms and smooths
- Removes dead cells and skin impurities
- Calms irritation and redness
- Protects the skin by removing harmful microorganisms
- Hydrates the skin
So to the scrub itself, its fragrance free but does have a mildly clinical smell to it, you only need to use a small amount as the scrub is very fine in texture. The main difference with this scrub from others is you actually use it on dry skin and not damp.....was slightly worried that it may be too course on dry skin but actually found it was quite gentle. If you do have overly sensitive skin i would suggest using it with water.
After application you then simply rinse off with water as usual.....skin felt immediately squeaky clean and fresh...surface is super smooth giving you a perfect base for make up. I did find that my skin felt dry quite quickly so i would advise application of a moisturiser or serum straight after.....it just so happens i had a few sachets of Dr Bragi Age Management Moisturiser so swiftly applied a couple of drops to finish off.
My overall complexion look refreshed, clean and felt smooth. Because of the slight drying effect afterwards i would say that I wouldn't perhaps use this on a daily basis, perhaps once or twice a week. The addition of the serum at the end provided the perfect base and gave me a super smooth finish.
Overall this is a great little exfoliant especially if you are suffering from spots or blackheads. Its at the higher end of the price range at £25 for 50ml however a little does go a long way so the tube will last.
