Wishful is a brand brought to us by Huda Kattan, born out of her want for straightforward, no-nonsense products that tackle skincare issues directly with none of the faff that she found in other brands. She teams up with cutting-edge labs to come up with the skincare solutions of her dreams, and so Wishful was born! After many years of hard work and research, this brand now delivers results-driven products designed to tackle specific skin concerns. So, we decided to jump on board and try out the Yo Glow Enzyme Scrub.
This product is a polish re-imagined, I've never really tried anything quite like it. My first impression was that the texture was super interesting, it felt like doing both a chemical and physical exfoliating treatment at the same time. Given that, I did find that it really did exfoliate the skin thoroughly and deeply, however, it did leave a little bit of pilling residue behind on the skin. Maybe this is my bad and I need to use it more efficiently, so let us know your thoughts on this!
Given the intensity of the exfoliant, I felt like this product might be a little too harsh on my sensitive skin upon application, but once I washed it off, I definitely found that my skin was brighter and smoother, so this scrub might work best on a 'once-a-week' basis for me! It is formulated with papaya (papain) and pineapple (bromain) extracts that work to brighten the skin, fade pigmentation and maximise clarity, alongside both alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids that purify any congestion on the surface of the skin.
I found the consistency a little messy to use over the sink, so maybe keep this as a shower-time treat so you can really lather it on as freely as you like. I think this would ultimately work best for those with skin that can handle a little bit more of an intense exfoliant, for those on the more sensitive side I would suggest maybe using it a little more sparingly to see some good results! To finish off, I have to say this scrub smelled absolutely divine, trust us on that one!
