Beauty Formulas Oil Control Exfoliating Facial Scrub – Pink Grapefruit Extract

 

Hello Ladies,

How are you all? I am back again after a break and I missed IMBB sooooooo much. My IT job is getting pretty hectic and am planning to change gear. So I was occupied with discussions and gyaan lessons showering on me all this while and had to take a break. I went to my stash and pulled out my current scrub and penned down this review.

Price: 249/- for 150 ml.

Packaging:

The scrub comes in a huge orange/off-white tube with a flip cap. The screw hole is about the right size. The packaging is sturdy but not quite travel friendly. It does not bother me anymore as my Fab Bag beauty samples have become my travel companions now.

My Experience with Beauty Formulas Oil Control Exfoliating Facial Scrub – Pink Grapefruit Extract:

I have an imperfect skin. It’s an oil factory with blackheads and pimples and skin pigmentation. After a long day out, I am never satisfied with a good face cleanser. My skin definitely needs and craves for a scrub. I know scrubbing everyday is harmful, but what is always good is not what the heart always wants. 🙂

So I was looking out for a nice everyday scrub which is not very harsh, but gives me that all grime gone feeling. I spotted this Beauty Formulas Facial Scrub at NewU stores and gave it a chance. I thought I would fall in love with the ‘Pink Grape Fruit’ smell but I was wrong. I hated it. I have a sensitive nose and the smell hits me hard and gives me a migraine feeling. That’s only my feeling though. Once I’m done the smell does not linger so I’m okay with it.

The scrub is light peachy pink in colour. The consistency is almost runny and has very minute granules but it does a good job. I feel squeaky clean after one wash. I get tempted to use it every day as the granules are very mild on the skin, but the ingredients hold me off. I use it on alternate days. The tube would last me a month and a half that way. After scrubbing my skin feels a little tight, but not very much. I dab a little moisture and it feels good.

I have been using it for 3 weeks and had no break outs. My face gets oily after around 2 hours, after this scrub with moisture on and so cannot say it really controls oil. But I am happy that my blackheads are in control. Dark spots – it does nothing to them. Overall it’s a decent scrub, but I don’t think I would hold on to this one.
