Tan Removal Scrub ft. SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X | Korean Beauty | Skin RenewupTM

Hello #blogfam,
I am back with another #kbeauty review. This time, it is an effective product for women as well as men for Tan Removal. All of us go out in the sun, but how do you prevent tanning on your body? Some of us use sunscreen, some of us prefer to cover our face, arms, body, etc while others don't care about tanning. But this time, I have an effective product that is not only awesome for Tan Removal, but it also helps to get rid of ingrown hair and dirt that gets stuck onto our skin. SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X is a perfect Tan Removal Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off) that effectively improves the complexion, cleans the pores and polishes your skin.

How do we get Tanning?
During summers, sun's heat make us wear short clothes. This is why our body parts get exposed to sun and we get tanned. There are two types of sun's rays which come in contact to our skin when we are out in the sun - UVA and UVB rays. UVA rays reach our skin and penetrate to the lower layers of epidermis (skin's layer) and trigger the cells to produce melanin. Melanin is the pigment that makes our skin appear darker or get tanned. UVB rays remain on the top of epidermis (skin's layer) and they cause redness or sunburns. UVA rays are harmful than UVB rays because they go into the skin and cause long term damage while UVB rays cause damage on the upper layer that can be treated within few days or weeks.

How to save skin from Tanning?
You can save your skin from Tanning by following the given steps:
1. Wear a sunscreen before going out in the sun
You should apply chemical sunscreen 30 minutes before going out in the sun while physical sunscreen should be applied 5-10 minutes before going out. Chemical sunscreen need some time to penetrate into the skin and form a protective layer while Physical sunscreen start working from the time they come in contact with the skin.
2. Scrub your skin twice a week
Sometimes, sun's rays are too harsh, so despite taking preventive measures our skin gets tanned. To avoid this, you should use Tan Removal Scrub twice a week on your skin. Scrubbing is a method which deeply cleans and scrubs off the dead skin layer, leaving our skin soft, clean and brighter. Since, one year I have been using SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off).

3. Cover your head, face and arms while you are out in the sun for long timeIf you are roaming in the sun for long hours then you should wear a hat that keeps sun's rays away from your face. You can also wear full sleeves clothes or wear arm sleeves to protect your arms from direct sun's rays. You can search for lots of printed or trendy arm sleeves from online websites and add to your fashion style.
4. Drink lots of water
You would be surprised to read that but yes drinking lots of water helps your skin to flush out toxins (UVA rays) from the body and keeps your skin natural, youthful and glowing. So, always drink at least 12-14 glasses of water every day.

SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off)
Korean skincare products have been trending in more than half of the world for their effectiveness. In Dec 2017 I started using Korean Beauty products and I was surprised to see how my skin changed in a positive way. My skin has improved a lot since then. I was a person who didn't care to apply a sunscreen before going out, so I get tanned easily. But SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off) is made up of black sugar that is sourced from Brazil's leading producer. This sugar has a rich brown colour due to the amount of molasses (a syrup separated out from sugar after the refining process). This sugar is enriched with vitamins and minerals and is organically farmed by the producers. This sugar helps to get back the moisture from the environment into the skin, leaving it hydrated.

1. It scrubs off dead skin cells.
2. It improves skin texture and creates even complexion.
3. It has black sugar and refined rice wine that makes skin soft and youthful.
4. It revitalises, moisturises and deep cleans the skin.
5. It can also be used as a makeup remover. (Read my experience to know how)
6. With regular usage it transforms dry and dull skin into young and youthful skin.
7. It helps to get rid of ingrown hair with regular usage.
8. It makes skin radiant and gives a body polishing effect.
9. It also helps to improve blood circulation when we massage to scrub off the dirt.
10. It can be used by anyone who is 18 years above.

My Experience
I have oily skin type, so it is necessary for me to use a scrub at least once a week. But as my skin is sensitive so I prefer using mild scrubs which does the work effectively and doesn't harm my skin. Since 2018, I am using SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off) and my skin is softer and smoother. I had ingrown hair and this scrub has reduced the issue to 80% till now.

SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off) comes in a convenient packaging and it smells soooooo good. Little bit of scrub is enough to scrub off face or one arm or one leg as the scrub spreads easily when it gets mixed with water. This ensures that the sugar granules doesn't harm the skin and cleans it effectively. After using SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X for the first time I could see that my skin was little bit lighter and softer. I couldn't imagine that it can show visible results in just one use.

I use this scrub twice a week before bathing and then apply a moisturiser to lock the good effect into my skin. Whenever I go for waxing, I use the scrub before and after too as it brings out the ingrown hair and helps to get rid of tanning and leaves softer, polished skin afterwards.

You need to wet your skin and take small amount of the scrub. Apply few drops of water and massage gently for 3-4 minutes. You can also leave it for 5 minutes and then wash off with cold water. Immediately, you will see softer and radiant skin. I also use it as makeup remover. I use SKINFOOD Black Sugar Perfect Essential Scrub 2X (Mask Wash Off) after a makeup remover or sometimes directly to remove makeup effectively and it cleans all the makeup residue and dirt in one go. Never forget to tone and moisturise your skin after cleansing or scrubbing.


I would recommend this Scrub or Wash off Mask to everyone as it is a must have for all to manage skin well. I would rate this product as 5/5. Also read other reviews on Korean Beauty products.
