Review | Perfectly Posh Whole Lava Love

perfectly posh whole lava love charcoal mask

Since my first experience trying out Perfectly Posh, I’ve been slowly incorporating their skincare into my daily and weekly routines.  So far, every product has been ‘an experience’ – each one smells amazing and makes my skin feel completely renewed, and the Whole Lava Love facial scrub is no exception!

Perfectly Posh Whole Lava Love Exfoliator

Perfectly Posh’s Whole Lava Love features a triple dose of exfoliating powers, including charcoal powder, sugar beads, and volcanic ash.  Together, they work their magic to reveal young, healthy skin.  At the same time, tea tree oil and peppermint oil help to further clarify and cleanse the skin and prevent future breakouts, while bisabolol works to sooth the skin and prep it for moisturizing.  Whole Lava Love can be used whenever you feel your skin needs some extra attention, or up to 2–3 times per week for, quite literally, gleaming results.

Key Ingredients:

  • Bisabolol – calms and soothes dry, flaky, irritated skin and is helpful in treating burns and inflammation. It also has antimicrobial properties and the ability to enhance the skin’s absorption of other moisturizing ingredients.
  • Charcoal – draws bacteria, poisons, chemicals, dirt and other micro-particles to the surface of skin, which helps to fight acne (1)
  • Peppermint Oil – has antiseptic and antimicrobial properties, and aids in oil secretion in skin, therefore preventing acne (2)
  • Tea Tree Oil – effective as treatment for bacterial and inflammatory conditions such as acne (3)
  • Vitamin E – an antioxidant; works to block free radicals from the body, and slow down the aging process (4)

Perfectly Posh Whole Lava Love Review

Between the sugar beads, volcanic ash, and charcoal powder, this high-concentrated scrub packs a lot of punch.  I only need to use the smallest, dime-size amount to cover my entire face and work off all the dry spots. Because the Perfectly Posh Whole Lava Love scrub is so concentrated, I find it best to use very light pressure and gently work it over the skin in small circles. After about 1-2 minutes, I’ll rinse it off to reveal not just super smooth, but glowing skin.

What makes the Perfectly Posh Whole Lava Love exfoliator stand out from all the other exfoliators I’ve tried is that it doesn’t cause my skin to feel tight or thirsty afterwards. Instead, it leaves a light layer of oil over the skin that continues to soothe and hydrate long after I rinse it off.  It also adds a dewy look and feel to the whole face (but nothing too shiny – just a natural glow).  Because of this, it actually works out to be a great pre-step in the mornings before applying BB cream or tinted moisturizer – it not only gives you a smooth, flawless canvas, but also preps the skin for makeup.

In terms of results, I began to notice a difference in my skin after using Whole Lava Love just twice.  My pores looked less congested, and they even started to get smaller.  I had actually been struggling with pimples on my T-zone prior to testing this out, and they’ve since cleared up with no new ones in sight!

Final Thoughts

Overall, if you’re on the lookout for a super effective exfoliator that will let you skip those costly facials, the Perfectly Posh Whole Lava Love face exfoliator is worth picking up.  Packed with natural and skin-loving ingredients, this scrub is essentially a mini-facial in a jar, and has easily become a staple in my at-home facial routine.

Whole Lava Love is especially great if you have dry skin. Instead of leaving skin feeling parched, it actually works to add moisture back into the skin after you’ve rinsed it off.
