Review of Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme Scrub

By Lisagray @juicysatsuma
I bought this exfoliator before I became a Dr Hauschka convert and Dr Hauschka don’t do an exfoliator. I’m guessing this is because it doesn’t fit with their philosophy of nourishing skin to improve it rather than treating it harshly in an attempt to bully it into improving.
That being said, this Avalon scrub is fantastic, however after it’s finished I’m going to go cold turkey on exfoliation. This is quite a momentous decision for me as it was only a few weeks ago I was seriously considering paying hundreds of pounds for a series of microdermabrasion treatments - the mother of all exfoliation!
Back to the matter at hand though. This Avalon scrub is a joy to use because it smells strongly of lavender which is just such a relaxing scent. The exfoliation action comes from finely ground walnut shell which makes this a proper gritty exfoliator. I think this is about as close to microdermabrasion as you could get from a scrub actually! 

Review of Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme ScrubTexture wise it is much closer to a liquid than most exfoliators. I used to be a devotee of St Ives Apricot Scrub which is creamy and thick. If you have oily spot prone skin I would definitely recommend Avalon over St Ives anyday. I feel like I’ve taken a layer of skin off after I’ve used Avalon which, weirdly, is what I like in an exfoliator!
Review of Avalon Organics Exfoliating Enzyme ScrubAs a side note Avalon are a natural, organic skin care company who don’t use parabens or other chemical nasties in their products. My regular readers (if there are any out there, except my Mum) will know that this is important to me as I am trying to go completely chemical free with in my skin care.  
Has anyone else tried anything from Avalon? Thoughts?
