I am a person with oily skin and I do get tanned easily. I regularly exfoliate my skin and then follow with mud packs thereafter toning and finally finish the routine with moisturizing my skin with my regular moisturizer/night cream. I follow this procedure at least 2-3 times a week. I was an avid user or Fab India Papaya Scrub till I found my recent love, the “Neem and Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub” from Fab India. Actually, I went to pick up the papaya scrub, but that was out of stock, so the SA suggested me to buy this as per my skin type. I was a bit sceptical, but then, I finally picked it up. Trust me, it gave me the results which were beyond my expectations. Please read on further to know how well it fared.

My Take on Fab India Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub:
If I had to sum up my experience in a single line, it would be, “I am head-over-heels in love with this scrub.” First of all, this concept of a gel scrub fascinates me enough. After using this, I want to use it again and again. I use it for my face and sometimes for my body too. I think if I start using it for my body regularly, I will have to buy it in bulk.
The scrub consists of a clear gel base mixed with fine crushed walnut shell particles and small neem leaves which are crushed too. As soon as you open the jar, you can smell the freshness. This is because of the neem leaves and the tulsi extract. The walnut shell particles are neither too harsh nor too mild on the skin. They are just perfect for regular exfoliation. You need to apply some pressure on blackhead prone areas like nose, chin, and forehead. Just massage with scrub for 5-6 minutes and you are done. The result is blackhead/whitehead free clean skin that glows with perfection. What I do is to allow the gel to dry on my skin after scrubbing and then rinse with plain water. This method is not mentioned anywhere, but I feel happy doing this way.
I had a slight tan before using this and I felt that within 2-3 scrubbing sessions, it was gone and my skin was as good as before. I just love how my skin reacts to this gel scrub. This gel scrub is far better than any of the existing cream-based scrubs.
Pros of Fab India Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub:
- Refreshing fragrance due to neem and tulsi extracts.
- Perfect for oily-skinned beauties.
- Not at all harsh on the skin.
- Removes blackheads/whiteheads and dead skin effectively.
- Not tested on animals.
Cons of Fab India Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub:
- Nothing except that I have to dip my fingers to take the gel out and it is easily exposed to air.
Finally, I would like to rate this as the best exfoliating product for everyone, especially oily-skinned people. I have already finished two jars and I have started my third one.
