The Huda Beauty Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub officially launched this week, however it’s been available on the Selfridges website for nearly two weeks now.
I really love the original Yo Glow Scrub, so when I saw this new limited edition scented version for summer, I couldn’t resist giving it a try. Keep on reading for my review…
It’s available in a 40ml / 1.35 fl. oz. size, which is still a decent amount of product, but I would love the full sized version in this very scent as it smells incredible.
The brand launched a Candy Cane Yo Glow as part of their holiday collection, so hopefully this is the start of lots more scented editions to come….
“A LIMITED-EDITION, unique scrub that’s packed with the same signature ingredients as Yo Glow ™ (pineapple & papaya enzymes as well as AHA & BHA’s) + a new delicious scent of tropical fruits & flowers all wrapped up in special-edition packaging!“
- Papaya Fruit Extract: Known to smooth and increase skin clarity to leave a radiant glow.
- Pineapple Fruit Extract: Helps to gently exfoliate, reduce dark spots and soothe skin.
- BHA & AHAs: Alpha hydroxy acids and beta hydroxy acids help to exfoliate dead skin cells, reduce dark spots and even skin texture and complexion.
- Cellulose: A soft, gentle exfoliant that evens skin texture and complexion.
Just like the original Yo Glow formula, Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub is said to be suitable for all skin types.
It features a hybrid formula that gently provides an enzyme, acid and physical exfoliation with no redness or irritation. Yo Glow Tropical Fruits helps to buff away dead skin cells, and allows you to create a smooth canvas for makeup.
The Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub has a pale lemon yellow plastic tube, with cute little pineapple and hibiscus flower illustrations all over. It looks very cute and summery, and the smell is even better.
If I had to describe the Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub scent, it’d be a fruit smoothie or dried papaya flakes. It smells delicious, but as the fragrance is under 0.02% (so it can be regarded as being ‘Clean’ by Sephora), it’s a subtle enough fragrance that it doesn’t irritate the skin.
Yo Glow is super simple you use. You simple squeeze a ‘blob’ of the scrub out of the tube, and then massage the scrub into dry skin in circular motions. As it’s a cellulose scrub, the cellulose balls up into white flakes (as shown above).
Some brands like to tell you that the white flakes are your dead skin, but it’s not true. You could use the Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub on a sheet of paper, and you’d get the same balling up results.
Whilst the white flakes aren’t your dry skin, the Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub does an amazing job at exfoliating the skin. Both this version and the Tropical Fruits scrub transform my skin in seconds.
It does an amazing job at smoothing the skin, and refining any uneven texture of the skin, and the results are visible too. It really is the perfect product to use before makeup, as it helps my makeup to sit better on the skin.
However, my favourite use for the Wishful Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Enzyme Scrub (and the original Yo Glow) is connected to blogging. Between my three beauty blogs, I do a heck of a lot of makeup swatches on the back of left hand.
So it’s really important to me my skin is smooth, soft and as even as possible, so products swatch well on the skin, to help readers get a good idea of how a product looks.
Yo Glow is amazing for keeping my hand super smooth, and I use it before doing swatch photos, and after to keep my skin as smooth and my swatches look as good as possible. I love the scent of this tropical version, and if you’re yet to try the Yo Glow Scrub, the Yo Glow Tropical Fruits Scrub would be the perfect version to try for the first time…
