Fabindia Rose Geranium Gel Scrub Review

Fabindia Rose Geranium Gel Scrub

I have sensitive, oily, acne-prone skin which cannot stand a lot of scrubbing. I don’t have much of blackhead problem but whiteheads are very much a part and parcel of my life. I have tried everything to get rid of them but nothing really works. If I use a whitehead remover stick, my nose turns blue but the whiteheads stay where they are. The point of the story is I am always looking for something which will work. When I saw this gel scrub, I wanted to try it because it was gel based, had rose in it and the whole claim of detoxification.

What does it claim:

An exfoliating gel with soothing rose petal and geranium oil. The rose petals have a cooling effect while the geranium oil detoxifies.

How to use: Apply a scoop of scrub to wet skin and gently massage to get rid of the rough patches.

What it does:

I was initially skeptical about the scrub because of crushed walnut granules. While buying it, I hadn’t noticed the ingredients and I was only expecting dried rose petals (I have no idea why I was expecting rose petals alone to be capable of exfoliation). The scrub can be used as facial and body scrub. I thought I will try it once on my face and if I breakout then I can finish this off as a body scrub. I opened the tub and I fell in love with the smell. The gel had a dominating smell of roses but it was not the kind which makes you sneeze or gives you a headache neither does it linger on for very long. It just makes you feel fresh.

The gel had small granules of walnut which are the same size as salt granules or maybe even a bit smaller. The pale brown coloured clumps are actually the rose petals and the dark brown coloured granules are crushed walnut granules.

The walnut granules are fine so they exfoliate but are not harsh on the skin. I still massage gently because my skin cannot handle a lot of stress. The gel base provides a medium consistency which is neither too thick nor too runny. After scrubbing, my skin feels soft but it is not very effective in removing whiteheads. It does make my elbow feel a lot better.

As for the claim of detoxification, I have seen no change.

• The floral fragrance which is not heady.
• The scrub didn’t make my skin breakout.
• Availability.
• Great for rough elbows and knees.

• It didn’t remove my whiteheads.
• The lid is not very strong though it does come with another white stopper beneath the cap.

Will I buy it again?
I will rather try something else.

  1. hmmm..even I suffer from white heads and have oily – combination skin..and I am still searching for some miracle product that can review white heads!!! …good review Maansi!! 🙂 :thanks: :thanks: :thanks:

        1. i have looked for products too for whiteheads but no such luck so what I am doing now is steaming my face once a week and after wiping my face with a towel, I apply the Body Shop seaweed iconic mask (combination skin) and that has helped to a certain extent.

    1. Prachi….. papaya one is harsher than this rose scrub. If the scrub is harsh it makes my skin breakout if it is mild it doesn’t remove the blackheads. Basically, nothing works :stars: :struggle:

    1. It is jyo……specially if you don’t have any whiteheads or blackheads. It smells divine and makes the skin soft without making it oily or very dry.

  2. sounds good… but i need something cream based :snicker: :snicker: :snicker: ,will skip this one,whats the price anyways ?:)

  3. Seems good enough…But I’m looking for something else. :struggle: What’s the price btw?
    …Good review,Maansi. :teeth

  4. Good review, Maansi. :yes: Disappointing to read about its failure with whiteheads. 😮 This one reminds me of the Khadi Rose Gel Scrub too. It has similar ingredients too and is great for the skin but doubt if it’s effective on whiteheads. 🙄
