|It is more of a butter than a scrub|
Amazing scrub. When you open the lid, you are greeted with a faint smell which is herbal and doesn’t irritate. There is a vacuum lid which prevents spilling of the scrub outside so no problem of the scrub getting on to the lid or the sides of the bottle. The scrub is really gentle. Ok, here is a con of the product. It is supposed to be a body polish but it is so gentle that I simply used it only on the face. There are very less scrubby granules and more of butters so ultimately it proved to be a moisturizing scrub. I did not even try it on my body so can’t really say how it will work there. But, thing is that I like something more granular on the body. But, it is great for face and neck. The granules are enough to scrub the skin and they are not harsh at all and very sparse but they do scrub well. It does remove the blackheads too. Though, I do not use scrubs daily and do not even recommend but I have been using the scrub daily at night and I faced no problems with using it everyday. No breakouts on my combination skin even though it is full of the butters and oils in the product. It brightens and makes the skin glow immediately and makes it really soft and the best part is that it keeps the skin moisturized and hydrated. I follow this with the Auravedic Facial Repair Moisturizer.
- Rice flour (1/2 table spoon)
- Besan (1 table spoon)
- Milk / Rose Water
- Do not use Rice flour alone as it is very coarse and may harm the skin if exfoliation is overdone.
- Do not use this recipe if you have a sensitive skin. It will definitely make your skin sour. Tried and Tested. Trust me, it hurts bad.
- Do not exfoliate with scrubs if you have pimples and acne.
- The scrub can be made in more quantity and can be used as a body scrub but keep the proportion same.
- Use the finer rice flour, not the coarse one.
- You can mix it with other scrubs too to make your own DIY recipes but make sure that you use a gentle agent with rice four to reduce its abrasiveness.
