Fab India Coral Glow Face Pack Review

by Rati on July 13, 2010 · 74 comments

The Fab India Coral Glow Face Pack

Price : Rs 250 for 100 gm “The extracts of coral, real pearls, aloe vera and Alum deep cleanse, cool and clarify the skin, giving it a radiant glow.”

Key ingredients

  • Liquorice : is an effective skin lightener.
  • Alum : is an effective toner.
  • Oak : removes excessive oil while regulating the sebum (oil) production in the skin.
  • Aloe Vera :  aids in skin healing, reduces perspiration and moisturises skin.
  • Coral Powder
  • Pearl Powder : helps skin in healing, skin brightening, anti-wrinkling, and sun protection.

It smells very sandalwoody but sandalwood is not mentioned as an active ingredient on the pack.

Fab India Coral Glow Face Pack

The face pack comes in a powder form. The packaging is pretty cute. The pot is a clay pot with wooden lid. And the powder inside is in a zip-lock pack.  You may empty the powder from the plastic bag to the jar but I didn’t do that. I feel that the pack remains protected from moisture etc. this way.

It also comes with a wooden spoon, which I feel is a little longer than it should be. The lid does not close completely once the spoon is inside the jar. I don’t mind that much because I keep my pack locked in a plastic bag  so even if the lid is not completely closed, it doesn’t affect the face pack.

Woodden spoonDirections for use : Mix a spoon full of face pack with milk for  dry skin and with curd for oily skin.  Apply on face , neck and arms in upward direction. Leave on for 6-8 minutes. Wash off with luke warm water.

Half a teaspoon is enough for face and neck. Coral Glow Face pack

I would say that this is a quick face pack. I make this pack in 2 tsp of milk and I keep the consistency of the pack pretty thin. The idea is to have more milk in the pack than powder. After you apply this pack on your face and neck, it starts to dry pretty quickly. I have never been able to apply this pack for more than 5 minutes . It dries quickly and makes you skin super tight. Then you have to run to the bathroom to wash off the pack and then run back to apply moisturizer. At least this happens with me. 😛

But all this running around I feel, is worth it. You see your face once you have washed your face, you would feel that you have got a facial done at the parlour.

  • Pores: Tightened
  • Skin : Stretched and youthful
  • Glow : Perfect
  • Dead -Tired looking skin : Bye Bye

My skin looks nice and glowing even after 2-3 days. The day I know that I have only 15 minutes to get ready and  go out for a date with hubby ( :P), I use this.

Fab India Pack

I keep the consistency this thin. You may also make this in milk cream if you want.

Fab India Face Pack

Overall I think it’s an excellent pack. Atleast it works wonderfully for my skin. Also, a little goes a long way.You just need small amount of it every time so that makes it even worth its price. You may use the jar even after your pack is over.

A few drawbacks are that

  • You cannot travel with it because one, the lid does not close- it’s just a light wooden cover on top and two, the jar is quite big.
  • The clay jar has to be stored at a safe place so that it doesn’t break.
  • I wish the spoon was smaller so that the lid could close completely. Not a complaint though because at least they are giving a cute spoon along with.

Indian Makeup and Beauty Blog Rating : :-* :-*:-*:-*

This pack was recommended by an IMBB reader, Rakhi. i would just like to thank her for this wonderful product. 🙂

I would just like to mention that skin care products don’t work the same way for everyone. So the results after using this pack may vary from person to person. Please use your own discretion before buying it. 🙂

Btw, I bought my first MAC brushes today- 2 MAC 217 and one MAC 219. Will show you guys tomorrow. 🙂

I have never seen this pack at the store, wonder if they supply it here in Mumbai, the jar is very unique and unlike the other plastic jar they sell their other packs in… Anyone seen this in the Mumbai stores?
I bought the lotus fruit pack and marinepack today s Im quite happy with myself :D, Rati, how much are the MAC brushes for? look fwd to seeing them tomorrow

and yes its available in mumbai in fab india store at chambur and they have sooooooooooooooo many i was just wondering coz i wasnt able to find it in santacruz(W) store … so i was lucky enough to get this ..

Reply

Rati July 14, 2010 at 8:20 am

Thank you, Rashmi. I was jumping with joy yesterday. 😛

Glad you liked the pack. I have never tried this with curd. Does it dry within 5-7 minutes even when used with the curd??

Now that you have mentioned al lot of IMBB girls should be seen at the santacruz store. Guess you must do a Fab India Mumbai IMBB meet. :rotfl:

oh the aloe vera under eye gel doesn’t work for me. I just use it in summers because it’s a little cooling. 🙂

Thanks for this review Rati :-*

I am surely getting this…anyways my Lotus and Biotique face packs are doing nothing gr8 so I hope this works for me the same way its working for u….

You knw so many of my friends rave abt facepacks since they since a significant diff in their face once they use facepacks so its a instant pickup for thm but none of the packs i’ve tried have worked that well for me so I feel so sad 🙁 but now i think I might just hve found something that would work gr8 for me

Now my only worry would be to find this at a closeby Fabindia outlet

Reply

Rati July 14, 2010 at 10:00 am

HD the other day I met Ki and she wanted to pick this at one of the stores and they didn’t have it there. I have not visited other stores of Fab india since long time so i don’t know. But I guess this pack is doing really well at their store. I guess mainly because of the packing an dthe ingredients mentioned. he he

I hope you get it soon. May be call them up and ask them if they home deliver stuff??

Aarthi July 14, 2010 at 10:29 am

Hey Rati. As you know I got this very recently. They had just 1 jar left with them and I just grabbed it. I have used it a couple of times and I really like it. Since I am very lazy to apply face packs and wait for a while I don’t buy many I’ve just got this one and I am happy with that 🙂

Reply

Aarthi July 14, 2010 at 10:33 am

I use this with curd and it takes 10-15 mins to dry. Not a problem though when I see the results 🙂

Reply

Rati July 14, 2010 at 11:21 am

oh wow!! 🙂 Guess i must mix both curd and milk because adding only curd might dry my skin more. This pack really makes me smile. 🙂

Lavanya Narayanan July 14, 2010 at 11:10 am

Sounds very nice . I would go for anything that claims to tighten pores. This claims and seems to works too . Let me get it :-))

Was wondering why the fabindia products smell different always, as is said in the review there is no sandalwood mentioned as ingredient in this pack but has a sweet sandalwood fragrance…similarly their seabuckthorn shampoo smells like pure honey, though it is not there in ingredient list…wat could be the secret?

Reply

Rati July 20, 2010 at 12:06 am

I don’t think that they reveal the full list of ingredients. It’s always the key ingredients… SO that could be the reason.

Reply

Rati July 20, 2010 at 12:11 am

How are you finding the pack otherwise?

POORNIMA July 20, 2010 at 9:41 am
