Review on VMV Hypoallergenics Hydra Balance Smart Cleansing Scrub

Hellos! I have been loyal to my existing skincare for quite awhile and never thought of “actually” changing it since I don’t want to mess up my skin. But being a skincare junkie, I just couldn’t resist the temptation and just had to try out some new stuff. As they say, you’ll never know unless you try it! And boy I was super glad I have tried it! ^_~

I’m not sure if you guys have heard of the brand VMV Hypoallergenics, but for those who don’t I’ll give you a quick summary of the brand itself.
VMV Hypoallergenics is a brand that produces products that are as skin safe as you’ll ever see. Aside from the proven efficacy of their product, all of their products are validated Hypoallergenic VH-76(sans all 76 common allergens), 100% Fragrance Free, 100% Phthalate, Dye, Paraben + Presernative Free and Non-Comedogenic. For more info about the brand, click HERE.

What it claims:
  • Fragrance, Paraben and Preservative Free
  • Non-comedogenic and usage patch tested
  • Deep cleansing and pore clearing
  • Softens and Hydrates skin
  • Control shine where needed
  • Perfect for combination skin and helps heal acne skin condition
My Reviews:
Consistency: Paste form with white tiny granules
Smell: No Specific smell
Packaging: Handy Tube Container (easy squeeze)
Oil-Control: Pretty good as my T-zone stayed oil-free for around 4-5 hours even I was in the field the whole day
Suitability: Normal/Oily Combination
Availability: Locally available (CLICK for store location and online shop)
Price: PHP650/  USD 16
Made in the Philippines (yeah!^^Two thumbs up!!)

What I love about:
  • Experience deep pore cleansing without over drying the skin
  • Able to heal acne gradually (noticed improvement after 7 days of usage)
  • Gentle enough to use it everyday especially for those with oily skin
  • Easy to rinse off
  • Granules does not irritate the eyes
  • A pea-size amount is enough for the entire face
A bit OFF:
  • The tiny granules may initially feel a bit rough on skin
Overall Review:
  • Despite having sensitive skin, I did not experience any irritation or discomfort upon using the product
  • I used this scrub twice a day and it did not over dry my skin
  • Noticed that the size of my acne have gradually decrease after 7 days of usage
  • I do recommend this to those acne prone and oily combination skin as this basically hits two birds in one stone
Hope you find this helpful ^_~

  13. love the hair color and hairstyle by the way what's the style?

    1. hello melody, thans for the sweet comment. I used Richenna's Ash brown for the hair color which is available in All watson's =)

  14. Hi Janet.. what if I use this scrub alone w/o any toners, creams or oil after.. just this product to cleanse my face, do u think it would help heal my moderate acne?

    thank u..

    1. Hello Ji,
      It really depends on your skin condtion. If you have skin condition like mine which is Acne Prone, Oily-combination and a bit dehydrated then this alone might not be enough to heal existing acnes. In my experience, combining it with a toner would help speed up the healing faster and much effective. Hope this helps =)

  15. ok thanks janet.. <3 God bless!
