L’Oreal EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub Review-
Hey there pretties!
So here I am today to review a scrub for the hair. Scrub? for hair? Yes you heard that right! Or rather, scrub for the scalp 😀 We take such good care to get rid of the dead cells & debris from the surface of our skin but seem to forget that the same cycle takes place every single day on our scalps as well which should be cleaned with something special rather than our usual shampoos! Especially people like us who have a greasier scalp more prone to build-up & dandruff, exfoliation is a must! Let’s see if this L’Oreal launch soothes our scalps 🙂
What L’Oreal Says-
Micro-Exfoliating Scrub with apricot seeds gently removes impurities, flakes and build up from dirt and excess oils that can cause hair to be weighed down. Gently massage to promote a healthy looking scalp.
100% SULFATE-FREE, PARABEN-FREE & FREE OF HARSH SALTS.
How to Use-

My take on the L’Oreal EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub-
The scrub comes in a sturdy plastic white tub with a screw-on dark blue lid keeping in sync with the new EverFresh variant 🙂 The packaging is easy to use & carry but of course, you do have to dip your fingers in to scoop it out!
The scrub is a creamy white jelly textured substance with lots of dark brown exfoliating granules suspended in it. I wet my hair & scoop out the jelly like scrub to massage it gently all over my scalp, concentrating more on the problem areas. It does not spread very easily & you do need quite a large amount to cover the entire scalp following which there is an instant cooling sensation on the scalp which I love ^_^
The beads are extremely mild in nature & do a decent job of exfoliation without hurting the scalp or resulting in any hair fall due to mechanical stress 🙂 I usually massage it & keep it on for 3-4 minutes after which I rinse it off & washing it off is surprisingly very easy 🙂 It foams up a bit & gets rinsed out without any slippery feeling & my scalp feels so cool & light & clean <3
I follow this scrub with my usual shampoo-conditioner routine & from the very 1st use I noticed that my scalp felt much calmer, less itchy & did not have the usual build-up or greasiness even a couple of days after shampooing 🙂 If you do not continue to use the scrub though, scalp reverts to square one in a week 😐 So yeah, must be used consistently, preferably once a week.
The fragrance of the scrub is very fresh, minty & lovely ^_^ I love the overall feeling of minty freshness on my scalp & in my bathroom 😀 It does not linger unfortunately :-/
Pros of the L’Oreal EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub:
1> Sturdy, user friendly tub packaging with a screw-on lid.
2> Scalp feels instantly cooled & soothed upon application 🙂
3> Mild yet effective exfoliation- scalp feels light & fresh <3
4> Build-up & greasiness is kept at bay along with itchiness of scalp.
5> Fresh, minty fragrance which I love!
Cons of the L’Oreal EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub:
I need a lot of scrub for each time use as it is not very easy to spread on the scalp.
My Rating: 4.6/5!
Do I recommend the L’Oreal EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub?
L’Oreal EverFresh Micro-Exfoliating Scrub is a very mild yet decent exfoliating scrub for oily, dandruff prone scalps like mine & I think it is a very good step on the behalf of L’Oreal to launch a drugstore product in this category which was largely needed! It keeps my scalp soothed & calm & prevents build-up if used once a week & I love it! Let’s hope L’Oreal India launches it soon! Recommended!
