Beauty review: Matsimela Marula Nut exfoliating mud scrub

For those not familiar with the brand, Matsimela is a proudly South African, cruelty-free range of home spa products made using natural ingredients sourced from rural communities in a bid to help uplift them. I was sent two items from their Marula Nut range (they have several including Rooibos & Honey and Litchi & Rose) and really liked the Exfoliating Mud Scrub (R103,50, Matsimela).

While it looks exactly like chicken liver pate (and will make you hungry to look at if you love it like I do), its ingredients include hydrating marula nut oil but the main ones are bentonite clay and silica sand. I really didn’t expect it to be exfoliating and thought it would be kind of like a mud mask with a slightly grainy texture but oh boy did I underestimate this guy. It exfoliates like a boss! Even more so if you apply it to slightly damp skin as opposed to wet. It did a bang up job of removing old self tan and now it’s on my list of favourite super scrubby scrubs – the only kind I like to use.
