My Take on Vya Naturals Rose Balancing Face Scrub:

Our skin goes through a lot of troubles during summers and my skin becomes very sensitive in these days. As I said exfoliation is the must for any skin during summers. A scrub has to be gentle or else excessive scrubbing can lead to breakouts of damage of skin, I was in search of a gentle scrub. I tried a lot of scrubs and then I found this product, thought of giving it a try. The moment I saw this product my first thought was, would it even work? It doesn’t even feel like it has any scrub like particles in it. And then when I used it I was surprised to see the results of this scrub. While I was scrubbing off the product it felt very soft unlike other scrubs and when I rinsed my face my skin felt fresh & smooth like butter and I literally had a beautiful glow on my face.

Hello Fam, hope you are all doing well..

IMG20181111173231

Consistency of Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub

My take on FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub:

Well, gel scrubs feel very light and smooth over skin, I always prefer gel based scrubs over cream based scrubs. This pretty gel scrub comes in a transparent tub with a golden screw lid that opens in a circular motion along with that it has a white lid on the inside to avoid spillage of product. The gel in it looks very attractive which has green and brownish particles of the neem leaves and walnut shell. The particles are very mild & not too rough on skin which makes it perfect for delicate skin and is great exfoliating scrub for combination and oily skin type. It has a very natural fragrance of tulsi and neem leaves that stays for a very little while and then fades away. It’s said to  be face and body scrub but honestly I prefer using it only on face because it is very mild which I think won’t work well on body, also a lot amount of scrub will be needed for body which will not go for a long time.

So basically, it is an antibacterial exfoliator which is good for preventing acne and giving a cooling effect and smooth skin. Whenever I use this product it gives me a nice cooling effect and makes my skin feel fresh and soothing. I personally love this product. I use it 2-3 times a week it can be used on alternate days as it is very mild and will not irritate skin. Also on sunny days you can use it by refrigerating to get even more cooling effect.

Pros of FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

  • Natural & light Fragrance
  • Not at all greasy as it is gel based
  • Mild granules which are not at all harsh over skin
  • Perfect for sensitive skin and oily skin
  • Not too expensive considering the quality and quantity

Cons of FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

  • It comes in a tub which can be unhygienic.

Other than that I did not really find any cons.

Availability:

www.nykaa.com , www.amazon.in

Will I repurchase the product?

Yes, I will but I have to try even more products so that I can review them for you guys 😛

So, for now I definitely recommend FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub to you. Use it and let me know your reviews also let me know if you have already used it and revert back if this review was useful for you.

See you until next time and take care .. ❤

Rice flour + lemon juice

Ingredients: 2 teaspoons of rice flour, pinch of turmeric (optional), 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice.

Method: In a bowl, add 2 teaspoons of rice flour and a pinch of turmeric. Combine both the ingredients and then add 1 teaspoon fresh lime juice to it. Mix it well and then apply the same all over the face and neck. Rinse it off with normal water after 15-20 minutes. Apply moisturizer after washing the face as lemon juice can cause dryness.

You can repeat the process twice a week. The ingredients present in face pack can help fade away the dark spots and make the skin clear and bright.Also we know that lemon juice has vitamin C and aids in clearing blemishes and pigmentation.

Ingredients: 2 tablespoon of rice flour, 2 teaspoons of fresh aloe vera gel.

Method: In a bowl, add 2 teaspoons of rice flour. Then extract gel from the fresh aloe vera plant and add 2 teaspoons of gel to the bowl (can use any aloe vera gel) mix both the ingredients to form a thick paste. apply the paste on the area of face and neck. Let it dry for 15-20 minutes and then rinse it off with water. Apply this pack twice  a week. This face pack works best when it comes to making the skin tone even and cleaning the impurities from the skin.This also helps in tightening the skin

You can also choose any of the following ingredients to mix with rice flour for getting a even tone and radiant skin.

  • Cucumber juice (for minimizing pores and improving complexion)

Apply the any of your preferred mask and once dried very gently massage and wash it off. Avoid being harsh this can cause damage to your skin.

Above listed ingredients shouldn’t be applied on cuts or bruises.

Increase Vitamin rich diet to hydrate your skin from the inside.

Do not expect instant results. Apply these packs for at least a month or two for getting desired results.

I’ve got good results by using these remedies.

Share with me your experience if you have used rice flour face pack and if not used definitely try these to achieve a skin that you dream for.
