My Experience With Aroma (Auraganic) Essentials Almond Exfo:

[Skin type: Combination (leans towards dry mostly), Sensitive, Dehydrated and Acne-prone]

I received this product in my Aroma Essentials PR kit with their Rose Turmeric Soap, Coffee Scrub, and Vitamin C serum when I purchased my favourite Hair oil & face wash from them a year back. 

If you have been following my blogs for a while, you may know that I don’t use physical scrubs anymore!  I have super sensitive skin that gets quickly irritated when I use a grainy exfoliator! 😞 I finished this face scrub long back. So, did this scrub worsen my skin issues or alleviate them? Find it below!

Aroma Essentials Almond Exfo comes in a transparent container with a black screw cap. There is an inner plastic lid to prevent product spillage, so it's travel-friendly. The packaging displays all the important product details like shelf life, price, and other related stuff. This scrub is available in 25 gms and 45 gms sizes. As mentioned earlier, I got this product as a PR sample. Hence the packaging may look different here. Also, the product label features only the two key ingredients, not the full list. 


Aroma Essentials Almond Exfo has a gel texture with micro granules. Its invigorating Rosy scent instantly relieves the anxiety and uplifts your mood. If you don’t like strong fragrance even if it is natural, then it may disappoint you!

How To use?

I followed the brand’s instructions. Over my freshly cleansed face and neck, I used to apply a thin layer of this Almond Exfo scrub and would leave it on for 10 minutes. Then after 10 minutes, I would gently rub my skin in a circular motion, concentrating mainly on the T-zone, and finally rinse my skin with cool water. I applied it only once a week, but the brand recommends twice a week!

How Does It Work?

Honestly, I was initially not interested in using this granular scrub on my sensitive skin at all 😐. After that 2018 cystic acne episode, I completely stopped using physical scrubs. Besides, this Almond Exfo is infused with essential oils. If your skin (like mine) has a love & hate relationship with essential oils, then do a patch test before using it.

But, at the same time, my past experiences with this brand’s products (especially their INSTA Clear mask) were great. So I took the chance and started using this facial exfoliator every week. I am glad I tried it! 😉

Aroma (Auraganic) Essentials Almond Exfo is composed of some amazing skin-fortifying ingredients. Almond and Walnut, both are rich in Vitamin-E, antimicrobial, and antioxidant properties, help fight free radicals & replenish the dead skin cells. Aloe Vera helps moisturise and soothe the skin. 

The fine granules of almond shell powder, walnut shell powder feel much less abrasive on the skin than other physical scrubs. So during the exfoliation process, I never had the feeling that I was sand-papering my skin 😛! Besides, it has a strong yet natural rosy scent that I liked a lot.

You need only a tiny amount of this product for each use. Since it has a gel base with a fine gritty texture, you can spread the scrub evenly and smoothly on the skin. To get rid of blackheads, I used to leave a thick layer on my nose always. 

Also, the naturally derived AHA in the scrub (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) helps gently yet effectively exfoliate the skin. And by eradicating all the dead skin cells, dirt, and grime, Aroma Essentials Almond Exfo provides you with smooth and radiant skin. 

Although the Almond Exfo never felt harsh on my skin, I used it only once a week and not twice or thrice. It neither irritated my sensitive, acne-prone skin nor did cause breakouts! 😍 However, it didn’t help me much with the blackheads 😞😞. 

As a general rule of thumb, post exfoliation, you should always apply hydrating skincare products. So, after exfoliating my skin with Almond Exfo, I used to finish my skincare routine by spraying a hydrating toner first, followed by a hydrating serum, eye cream, moisturiser and lip balm.
