I recently did a guest post on Skincarevilla relating to Affordable Facial Scrubs for Oily Skin, about which you can read here. I have an acne prone skin and scrubs are something which I have avoided all my life, until sometime ago. In the list of some of my favourite facial exfoliators, Fuschia Green Tea Face & Body Scrub paved it’s way not only due to its 100% natural ingredients but also due to the fact that it retains exfoliant granules which do not affect my pimples.
With the transition of the season, my combination skin asks for hydration and hence it seems like an appropriate time when I shall share with you my experience with this scrub. Let’s begin, shall we?
Ingredients: Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Green Tea.
Net Weight: 100 grams
Price: Though the original price is INR 450 but you can always find it at discount upto 50 bucks.
Where to buy: Buy yours from here.
Packaging: The packaging is simple yet pretty! The scrub comes in cuboid plastic jar with its corners retained curvy. The jar is made of transparent plastic, hence travel friendly. It comes with a tin screw-open lid on which details of the brand and products are pasted.
Cream based facial scrubs never really worked for me! All they did was to provide unwanted, not so amazing illumination! The ingredients list of this scrub made me slight worried as I believed it’s not gonna work for my combination skin which varies between extra oily in summers and flaky in winters. But components such as ‘green tea’ & ‘aloe vera’ became the reason why I gave upon my hesitations. The first thing I noticed was the fact that it smells exotically good but I fail in describing the fragrance. The texture appears creamy but the consistency is kinda light. Exfoliants are very finely ground and they help in providing mild scrubbing experience for the skin. I am not really sure if it really evades blackheads due to minute granules but that itself makes it work well for the acne prone skin! Post exfoliation, my skin felt so wonderfully soft and hydrated! The hydration is enough to make flakiness disappear but it does not leave you with a greasy face.
· Works well for acne prone skin
· Contains fine exfoliant granules
· Hydrates the skin without making it oily
· Slightly expensive.
Final Verdict: Definitely worth trying if you have acne or oily skin type. The aloe vera helps in soothing up the pimples. For the dry skin type, a layer of moisturizer might be necessary. But those falling between the spectrum of medium to oily skin, would not need to top it off with another source of hydration.
