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:

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 .. ❤
