Jovees Ayurvedic De-Tan Scrub

I thought, it would not be a good beginning to my post, if It is not preceded with my due apology for being MIA( missing in action) for long. I hope you would forgive my sporadic way of post publishing… as I have re-located abroad and resultant uncertainties, have had their impact on my blog.

I hope you are patient and put up with me, until I try to steer my blog, back to its normal track ūüôā

The Product: A ayurvedic de-tan scrub from Jovees.

The Look:  White and creamy with suspended granules.

The Aroma: Classic, little strong ayurvedic smell , not irksome .

My Take: Well it is very mild, yet strong enough to slough dead skin cell and for this attribute, I might end up using it forever. Well, a call for those who like mild scrubs! It does not irritate the skin and at the same time does its job well.

As for the de-tan effect, I cannot actually comment as, I expected it to be a great scrub and brightener. Also, I did not have any sun tan to begin with. It does have a polishing and brightening effect after its use though, and effectively removes superficial white and black heads, rendering a smooth and soft skin with a mild after glow.

Overall, a good scrub suited for all skin types including sensitive skin types. Also, it is very cheap In India and definitely worth a try.

Everyuth Foot Scrub Review

Everyuth has made quite a few new launches recently and the foot scrub is one of them. I had high expectation from it, for I had read rave reviews on it. So, let see if it is really as good. I have been using the Oriflame foot scrub for last two years and according to me it is the best food scrub ever.  I have reviewed it HERE.

The look :  Peach colored granules suspended in transparent orange gel.

The Texture: I would have loved it if it were more gritty , as the granules are too soft to exfoliate. Also, it is a foaming scrub.

The Smell: Fresh and citrusy

My Take: It is a foaming scrub and cleanses well , but it would have been way better if the granules were more rough. I feel the exfoliation effect is not up to the mark. It has fullers earth¬† in its ingredients, which makes it a very good cleanser and the feet look brighter after its use. I love to use it as a hand and body scrub ūüôā and it works better that way.

If one doesn’t have major issues with their feet, then it can deliver well.¬† Also, it fits one’s budget ūüôā

Else, if the feet are severely dry and cracked, I  suggest to use something more gritty like the Oriflame scrub.

Price: INR 80

Product Score: 3.5/5

Lakme Clean Up Scrub Review

Scrubs enable ex foliation of dead epithelial cells, thereby revealing the healthier cell beneath, enabling cell renewal. So, a scrub needs to be included in everyone’s skin care regimen. I usually scrub twice a week, and really love the squeaky clean feel it gives. I bought the lakme scrub with strawberry extract recently and have become really fond of it.

The Look: A tight paste that is beige in color, with walnut granules.

The Smell: Of strawberries, of course ..

My Take: Well, I absolutely recommend it to everyone, it shall suit all skin types. The granules are pretty abrasive so as to dislocate minor black heads and roughness , yet not so harsh on skin. The smell is heavenly. I apply it to moist face and then scrub by face for about three to five minutes gently, then keep it for another ten minutes, and then wash it off. It imparts a subtle after glow and regular use keeps your facial skin smooth.

Do try it, you would love it..

When spread all over on moist skin

Price: INR 80

Summary: A great scrub at a decent price, very much affordable and effective.

DIY: Coffee Body Scrub

I had some unused coffee beans lying on my kitchen shelf and thought of putting it to use by making a body scrub. This scrub works wonders for my skin and makes it smooth and soft. I can vouch for the visible smoothening effect it had on my upper arms. My upper arms had been quite rough and gritty due to over active sebaceous glands and this scrub has reduced the roughness to a great extent.

So let me go ahead with the recipe.

Ingredients:

  1. Whole Coffee Beans
  2. Granulated Sugar
  3. Any Oil like Coconut, Olive, Almond or Sesame . I used Coconut.
  4. A Jar with a lid for storing.
  5. Vanilla Essence (optional)

Procedure:

  1. Take the Coffee beans and grind it in a mixer ensuring that its not finely ground, it needs to be granular.

2. Mix it with equal amount of sugar in the jar, which you would like to store it.

3. Pour Coconut Oil on top and mix it properly.you can also put few drops of vanilla essence to make it smell delicious.

Your DIY scrub it ready!

It does work wonders , but be careful to not apply it to your face, as it could be abrasive. The scrub can be stored in a tight-lid container for up to two months weeks or even more, in a refrigerator. This also works as a good foot scrub as well. A very effective scrub, which is worth a dime. You would stop buying scrubs altogether :). But, one should be careful and make sure they are not allergic to the ingredients.

Lotus Herbals Whiteglow Yogurt and Oatmeal Scrub Review

This is so unlike normal scrubs, a scrub which is white in color and looks like yogurt mousse and smells delicious. It has become my current Favorite, though I love trying variants of scrubs. Before this, I used the Jovees Papaya scrub which was very good on my skin, I plan to buy it again when this one finishes.

The scrub is like a thick white paste, which is soft and easy to work with. I usually apply it in dots all over my wet face, then gradually scrub in circular motion for about 3 – 4 minutes and then leave it on 5 minutes before washing it off. It gives a smooth texture to the skin, takes off tan to some extent and makes the skin glow. This is gentle and I use it twice a week. The particles are not abrasive and gradually slough the dead skin cells. Overall its a great product.

The granules in the scrub make me suspicious, in the ingredients if we observe we shall realize the granules are actually polyethylene particles. I did not expect a herbal brand like lotus to use plastic granules  in their products. But as long as they are not harmful, we can put up with it.

To sum up the goods:

  • Gentle on skin, would suit all skins.
  • Effectively scrubs the skin to give a glow and remove tan
  • It does brighten but not whiten ūüôā
  • Smells very good
  • Removes whiteheads and rough skin to some extent
  • Packaging is travel friendly

The bads :

  • Has plastic material called polyethylene as scrub granules.
  • Does not work on embedded blackheads etc.

Summary: Worth a buy ! Gentle on skin and gives a glow to the skin. Suitable for all skin types ! Though sensitive skinned people need to be bit careful with scrubbing.

Price:  INR 165

Product Score:  4/5
