Hi IMBB Beauties,
In my hunt to buy a good scrub for my feet, I keep picking and trying different scrubs. I know face scrubs are milder and for the feet, we would have to buy a scrub with coarser granules, but since I don’t mind the hit and trial (in the hope of picking up something wonderful), I got myself Ayur scrub last weekend. Please read on further to see how this one fared.

Discover a new you and get rid of dull, tired and lifeless skin. Ayur walnut and apricot scrub contains natural walnut and apricot kernel to gentle exfoliate dull surface cell and remove impurity. Birch extract have soothing and purifying effects it reveal glowing fresh and healthy skin.
INR 45 for 60 gms (the MRP printed on the tube is Rs. 45, but I got it for Rs. 47 as that was the price listed on one of the online sites, poor me). Nothing fancy about the packaging, it comes in a white coloured tube with a screw cap.
My Take on Ayur Exfoliating Scrub with Walnut and Apricot:
It comes as an off-white coloured cream-based scrub. I did a mistake in buying it as I am an oily-skinned girl and this scrub is cream based. This should be appropriate for normal to dry skinned beauties. Coming to the most important part which is the scrubbing properties, yes it does have granules in it (quite visible in the photograph as well), but they are so mild that I do not feel if I have scrubbed or not, none of my blackheads were removed. My skin felt softer no doubt, but it didn’t serve the main purpose. The fragrance as such is not an issue and is very mild, disappears the moment you wash your face.
My mom who has normal skin tried this and she gave the same feedback that the product didn’t scrub her face nicely though her skin felt softer and smoother. There was no glow as such afterwards. If you are one of those who prefers to scrub everyday, you might give it a try, but those of you who like weekly or bi-weekly scrubbing, shall find it too mild.
Summing the pros and cons:
Pros of Ayur Exfoliating Scrub with Walnut and Apricot:
