Review: Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Eye Revive Contour Gel
The product I’m sharing this time is Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Pearl Exfoliator. I was on the quest to find an amazing facial scrub. I thought I would give the brand Andalou Naturals a try. So this exfoliator is a mineral exfoliator with alpine rose stem cells. It gently sweeps away impurities, dull skin, and dry skin. Contains pomegranate to uplift tone. Has moisture-binding humectants to help revive skin’s hydro lipid barrier for a flawless looking complexion. It’s non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan, cruelty-free, pH balanced, hypoallergenic, and dermatologist tested. I finished the whole product. Now here are my thoughts on it!
This product is a gel with very tiny exfoliating beads in it. The beads are not harsh or abrasive. They’re smooth. This exfoliator is indeed very gentle on the skin. It didn’t burn or irritate my skin. I want to emphasize the gentleness of this facial scrub because it truly is. Even though I love how gentle it is on the skin, I wish it was more exfoliating and actually did something for my skin. I didn’t think it did anything. I saw no improvements in the condition of my skin. I still had dead skin stuck to my face after use. It’s supposed to be an exfoliator, right? Shouldn’t it remove dead skin cells and leave my skin feeling softer and smoother afterwards? It just didn’t do anything. It’s too gentle. The amount of beads in this product is very sparse. It feels more like a facial cleanser than an exfoliator/facial scrub. Since the exfoliator was terrible at removing dead skin cells, I tried pressing the exfoliating beads onto my skin a little more. Giving it a little bit more pressure to feel the beads on my facial skin, but that didn’t work either. It didn’t help remove dead skin from my face. From this experience, I think this exfoliator is just too weak and just not right. When I’m exfoliating my facial skin, I want the process to be a smooth, effortless, and natural as much as possible. For that reason, I didn’t like this facial scrub. I wasn’t happy finishing the product. It’s just a very bad product.
Pros & Cons
- Extremely gentle on the skin
- Good for sensitive skin
- Not enough exfoliating beads in this product.
- Doesn’t exfoliate the skin. I still had dead skin stuck on my skin after use.
Another Andalou Naturals product down. This exfoliator was just really bad. It didn’t exfoliate like it’s supposed to. It didn’t sweep away impurities, dull, dry skin or uplift the tone. It didn’t leave my skin looking flawless. My complexion didn’t glow afterwards. I had no results from this product. It was a waste of money. I won’t purchase again. It’s not an exfoliator I would recommend. Don’t buy.

My Experience with Silicone Exfoliators!
After trying a konjac sponge (Purito Jeju Volcanic Scoria Konjac Sponge), I thought I would try a silicone exfoliator instead, since it looks more clean and sanitary for daily use or when I need to exfoliate my skin. The purpose of using a silicone exfoliator is the same as using any other facial exfoliator tool. It helps to clean out the pores, remove dead skin, and leaves the skin soft and smooth. Now here are my thoughts on this silicone exfoliator!
The pack I purchased contained 5 silicone scrubbies in a variety of colors. Mine came in lavender, mint green, baby blue, yellow, and baby pink. The first one I used was the lavender one (not pictured). These silicone exfoliators are pliable. It feels like plastic. To use this exfoliator, I applied my facial cleanser onto my skin first. Gently rub it in to my skin. Next, I lightly move the silicone exfoliator in circular motions on my face to remove dead skin. Not too much pressure. Just a little bit. I had some dead skin hanging from my face, and I noticed that it removed them pretty well without being harsh. Not bad at all! It helped to remove (some) dead skin cells without being too abrasive. It’s very similar to the konjac sponge, except it doesn’t feel soft and squishy on the skin. What’s great about these silicone exfoliators is that they’re easier to clean and sanitize. They’re also portable. Sounds all good. But, I didn’t like the way it felt on my skin. I think I’d rather much prefer a facial brush or something else that’s softer instead. Since the silicone exfoliator is a piece of plastic, that’s what it feels like when I use it on my skin. I just didn’t like it. So I eventually stopped using the silicone exfoliator. It didn’t do much for my acne anyways. Moving on…
This is what the silicone exfoliator looks like. The product is very small. It fits in the palm of my hand.
Pros & Cons
- Easy to clean
- Gently exfoliates the skin
- Doesn’t do a thorough job at removing dead skin
- Plastic feels a bit rough on the facial skin
I wasn’t too much of a fan of the silicone exfoliator. I still have a pack of these exfoliators sitting around untouched. Maybe I’ll put them to good use by using it to exfoliate my legs or something, lol. I just didn’t enjoy using it on my facial skin. A soft, gentle facial brush works so much better and removes dead skin cells just as well without feeling like I’m rubbing plastic on my face. I think it’s just a preference. This silicone exfoliator may work for someone else. It’s just not for me.
