Clarisea Sea Salt Scrub Review

Today I have a product to share with you all that I received in my September Ipsy bag. I was super excited to test this Clarisea Rapid Detox Charcoal Exfoliant with you! Keep reading to see what I thought.

I was super excited to get this sample in September! The Clarisea website says it “vacuums up impurities from deep within pores with naturally detoxifying ingredients…Add it to your favorite face cleanser or just blend with water to create an instant pore clearing scrub.” It’s all natural, vegan, gluten free, and even comes in recyclable packaging! I’m always a fan of helping the environment. It also features Himalayan salt, bamboo charcoal, and almond flour. Sounds great, right?

Unfortunately, I have no idea if this face exfoliant actually lives up to its big claims, because it is so darn hard to actually use! It comes as a sort of powder, sort of scrub consistency, and the directions say you should mix a little of it with your favorite face wash. Easy enough, right? Wrong! The powdery mixture gets everywhere, is impossible to mix evenly, and once you get it on your face, it exfoliates for about 0.2 seconds before the salt dissolves and disappears! I had really high hopes for this product, so I was pretty disappointed. I tried it in multiple washes and by itself, and I got similar results.

To be fair, I may just be doing this completely wrong. Has anyone else tried this product, or something similar? Any tips to make it work better? I’d really like to make this work for me, since it sounds so great, but I just can’t make it happen! If you’d like to test this out yourself, you can pick it up here.


On the plus side, just a few more days and I’ll be home for Christmas πŸ™‚ Ever tried anything like this? What do you think? Let me know in the comments! Thanks for stopping by πŸ™‚

  1. I haven’t used any scrubs that you have to mix with a cleanser before. In regards to having trouble rubbing it on your face, though, I have found that putting my cleanser on a makeup remover pad and then scrubbing with that works best. It keeps all of the product together and I can really get down to business πŸ˜‰

  2. I’m sorry you didn’t end up liking the scrub, Kiki! But, I do want to mention that I’ve used a lemon and sugar scrub by Andalou Naturals and though it was much different in consistency, the effect was quite similar. Once I rubbed it on my face, the salt would dissolve almost instantly, so that might just be normal for a salt based scrub.

    I hope you’re having a lovely day!

    I subscribed to IPSY a few months ago and I’m addicted. Words can’t express how happy I get when I see that pink metallic package in the mail. The samples are so huge and last forever. I still have products I received a while ago that I haven’t even opened yet.

  4. I haven’t used this product, I didn’t even know the brand, and the fact that it dissolves so quickly, well, maybe that’s what they wanted… hard to believe, since a scrub has to do a better job. So good that you will be home soon! As you asked, yes, I have lived this sensation and it is really sweet!
