My review for today is the scrub from Lakme clean up range of fresh fairness. The face wash has already been reviewed and I went to pick up all three but unfortunately the mask was unavailable, so I could pick up only the face wash and scrub. I picked this up on my trip to “Health & glow”. I badly wanted Walmart to come here but still I am very thankful that atleast Health & glow is there.
Price: Rs. 110 for 50 g

How the Lakme clean up fresh fairness face scrub worked for me:
To start with, my skin is a combination one and is little acne prone as well. Sometimes the oil secretion increases which makes it a necessity to have such small handy scrubs. The packaging I should say is very cute which is pink in colour with white and silver fonts on it. There were two sizes available, this one and a 100g as well. I picked the small one as it was a trial pack for me to see how the product suits my skin. The cap is a turn and open one in transparent white colour which does not cause any inconvenience. Although they had advised to use all the 3 steps together but I did not do it that way, I just used it as a scrub instead because I have many facial kits to be used and they have 4-5 steps where I enjoy my facial even more. The texture of the scrub is very similar to the St. Ives apricot scrub just the difference is that the granules are a little smaller and the colour is light pink.
I expected it to be a gel scrub but it turned out to be a creamy one but it made me happier. When I applied it on the face , it was really smooth and not at all harsh. The smell is really good, it’s a floral one and I had a firangipani body wash so I know the smell and the smell of this scrub is somewhere near that. The scrub has neither harsh granules which would make the skin go red or break out nor very tiny granules where you will feel that proper exfoliation is not happening, the consistency is perfect. I massaged it for 2 minutes and washed it off with cold water and my skin felt smooth and soft. I actually had touched my skin before and it was oily and this helped to remove all the oil and dead cells and I have lots of whiteheads on my nose area and the small not-so-very-harsh ones were removed and the area felt smooth as well. Although it did not brighten my skin or gave me fairness, the skin looked a little fair after washing it but that effect happend to me with plain water too. There was no dry or stretchy feeling although the dry-skinned people may face a little dryness. I could actually saw that after using this scrub, the moisturizer is absorbed in the skin very well. Overall it’s a very nice affordable scrub and everyone should give it a shot!!
