Khadi Whitening Scrub with Badam and Aloe Vera Review

Hello Lovely Ladies,

How many of you love your skin after scrubbing, raise your hand. I knew you love scrubbing, now keep your hands down and read on the review. Like you, I also love smooth skin and so I scrub my face twice a week at least. I was getting bored of my Everyuth Walnut Scrub and looking for a substitute when I saw the Khadi whitening scrub with Badam and Alove Vera on one online shopping site.  I quickly ordered it as Khadi is said to have herbal ingredients.

Khadi Whitening Scrub with Badam and Aloe Vera Review

Price:

Rs. 165 for 210 gm (I got it for 10% discount price).

Product Description:

An ayurvedic almond-based face scrub which imparts natural nourishment effect to the skin.  Removes blackheads and scars from the skin.

Method of Use:

Rub the scrub on face, elbow and neck gently with finger tips in circular motion for 5-6 minutes and clean with moist cotton. Don’t rub on acne or pimples.

Ingredients:

Prunus Amygdalus, Symploces Racemosa, Rosa Alba, Aloe vera Tourn, Glycerin, Sodii Biboras, Base, Preservative, Juglans Regia, Purified Water.

My Experience with Khadi Whitening Scrub with Badam and Aloe Vera:

When I took out the scrub to use, the first thing I noticed was that it had smaller grains than the walnut scrub and had a creamier base. I applied it all over my face and neck and started massaging in a circular motion.  I was able to feel the grains (almond particles??) working on my skin, which gave me a satisfactory feel. The scrub was very creamy and so it was very easy to work it on the skin.

This scrub also has some rose/some flowery kind of pleasant smell in it, which feels good while scrubbing. It is not an overpowering smell, so no issue for sensitive nose. When I washed my face, my skin was smooth.  There was no stretchy or dry feeling and my skin felt quite moisturized.  I think girls with dry skin will love this property of the scrub.  I have oily skin and so I did not like this creamy feel so much and ended up using a face wash after that.

Packaging is typical of Khadi products; transparent plastic bottle with a black flip open cap.  Somehow, the packaging did not look so sturdy to me, I will be scared to take it with me while travelling.

Scrub 1

The product claims to remove blackheads and scars, which is not very true, as it is really difficult to remove blackheads just with a face scrub. Yes, it works on white heads and removes dead skin, giving smooth and glowing skin. It is a medium granule size scrub with granules which are not very harsh or mild.
Consistency is creamy and not runny.

Pros of Khadi Whitening Scrub with Badam and Aloe Vera:

  • Works well as a scrub, not very harsh on skin, neither very mild.
  • Gives smooth, clean, and glowing skin.
  • Removes whiteheads, not very sure about the scrub removing blackheads though.
  • Has a pleasant smell.
  • Not a lot of product needed every time.
  • Very creamy texture, works easily on skin without hurting.
  • Ayurvedic product, as khadi claims.
  • Very economical.

Cons of Khadi Whitening Scrub with Badam and Aloe Vera:

  • It is named “whitening” scrub, but did not see any whitening effect.  I feel it will be too much to expect from a scrub to make my skin white, but it has almonds, and that’s good for skin.
  • Availability can be an issue; though online it’s easily available.

Final Verdict on Khadi Whitening Scrub with Badam and Aloe Vera:

This is a decent scrub at a very economical price, good for daily use. Its creamy consistency and moisturizing properties make it an idle choice for dry skin beauties. For this price, I think everyone can give it a try as it works well too as a scrub.

IMBB Rating:

3.5/5 (points taken as I have oily skin and it makes me use face wash after scrubbing).  For dry skin, I give it 4/5.

Yes, I will.

scrubbing is supposed to give you a more even skintone as dead skin cells accumulated over the years can have the appearance of natural skin, only darker. So, in that way a scrub/exfoliant is a skin whitening product. i am always looking for the perfect scrub so thanks for the review!
