I had been on a search for a good yet affordable facial scrub. I definitely did not want to go back to the Himalaya ones since I did not have a pleasant experience with them earlier. Well, I found this one and I grabbed it the moment I saw ‘Charcoal’. So let’s know about my experience.
INR 249 for 150ml (I got it at a discount)
My Experience with Beauty Formulas Facial Scrub with Activated Charcoal:
Beauty formulas has definitely upped their packaging. This tube really catches the eye. There is a picture of charcoal on the tube. The tube, however is bulky and cannot be carried around. But I always keep some little bottles in which I carry such stuff. The tube has a flip cap which sits back in place and is user-friendly.
The scrub is grey in color with abrasive particles. There are different sizes of abrasives which I quite liked. There are some big as well as small ones which make it more versatile. There is no significant smell to it, thankfully. I’ve seen that most scrubs have some sort of weird and disturbing smell which makes it a big turn off. This one is an exception. The texture of the base is also creamy and spreads easily.
Coming to the performance, I think it does its job fairly well if you don’t have any major problems with blackheads. My skin is normal and it makes the texture of my skin softer and smoother. It definitely deep cleanses. Like some scrubs, this one did not leave my skin dry. I have a few blackheads on my forehead but I did not see them vanish post usage.
And also, I have open pores on the sides of my nose too on which I did not see any changes either. On the downside, I really despise the ingredient list. I think most of the Beauty Formulas products contain so many parabens. But overall, I think it is a pretty good scrub which cleanses and makes skin smooth.
