Hello to all,
Well this month I have not done many reviews. I was pretty much busy with my personal ups and downs. But now since I am feeling much better, not because my problems have been solved but just because I am trying stop thinking about them, I thought of reviewing few things from my recent purchases.
I recently picked some good stuff from Beauty formulas in the New Year. I was not aware of this brand until I started following IMBB. IMBB has introduced me to a whole new world. The product I am going to review today is Beauty Formulas Cucumber and Avocado Facial Scrub. Since long I was looking for a good scrub as my previous scrub- Garnier one didn’t do much good to my skin.
Price: INR 210 for 150ml
Shelf Life: 3 years
Benefit of Cucumber: Cucumber as we all know works wonder not only for oily skin but for all the skin types. Cucumber revitalizes the skin and helps in skin lightening. It has a bleaching property and works as in rejuvenating the skin. It helps in removing the tanning too.
Benefits of Avocado: Avocado contains huge amount of vitamins and nutrients including beta-carotene, lutein, Vitamins B6, C, E and K, selenium, zinc, folate and potassium. In fact, avocado oil has long been used for beauty products like cleansing creams, facial masks and bath oils.
My experience with Beauty Formulas Cucumber and Avocado Facial Scrub:
Scrubbing is a very important part of beauty regime. It removes dead skin, makes your skin free from dirt and impurities and removes blackheads. The scrub comes in white tube packaging which has a flip to open cap. Cap is tight enough making it spill proof. Tube is of white and green colour and has pictures of cucumber and avocado. The scrub is blue in colour with brown coloured scrub particles. Scrub has a very mild and nice fragrance which will not bother people with sensitive nose. The scrub particles are very mild. I have oily skin and am prone to blackheads and such mild scrubs do not remove the blackheads completely from my skin. Its consistency is just what is needed for a scrub to be. Not runny and not very thick. I just made my face wet, took a small amount of scrub and rubbed it on my face in circular motion. After using the scrub my skin did feel soft and smooth. I did see a difference but also I would like to say it left few of the blackheads on and around my nose. The tube being big in size is not travel friendly. Also it contains parabens. I wish online sites do show ingredients list when products are listed there. If that would have been the case I would have stayed away from a product which contains parabens.
Positives for Beauty Formulas Cucumber and Avocado Facial Scrub:
• Good quantity for the said price
• Smells nice and the smell is not irritating or strong
• Makes my skin soft and I did see a difference
• Did not break me out
Negatives for Beauty Formulas Cucumber and Avocado Facial Scrub:
• Major Con- contains parabens
• Scrub particles are too mild for me
• Does not remove blackheads completely
Will I recommend or repurchase Beauty Formulas Cucumber and Avocado Facial Scrub?
No I will not repurchase this scrub as I didn’t like it much. I am still searching for a good scrub for my oily skin. Girls who like mild scrub can try it.
