Lotus Herbals ApriScrub Fresh Apricot Scrub Review

BY SOMREETA MUKHERJEE

Recently, I was looking for a budget facial scrub that would help me exfoliate my face. I ended up buying a tube of Lotus Herbals ApriScrub Fresh Apricot Scrub and I have been using it for the past few weeks.

CLAIMS MADE BY THE PRODUCT: As your hair and nails grow, your skin also grows. Upper skin cells become dead and new cells are developed underneath. It is necessary to remove these dead cells to reveal the younger, radiant skin from underneath. Lotus Herabls ApriScrub is the perfect scrub to scrub away these dead cells gently without rupturing your skin. A young, radiant skin is what you get after using this scrub.

INGREDIENTS: Water, Prunus Armeniaca ( Apricot Kernel) Powder, Glyceryl MonoStereate, Glycerin, Stearic Acid, IsoPropyl Myristate, Cetyl Alcohol, Light Liquid Paraffin, Sodium Lauryl Sulphate, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Fragrance

 

DIRECTION FOR USE: Moisten face & neck. Apply Lotus Herbals Apriscrub in dots all over the face and rub with wet fingers in clock wise and anti-clockwise direction massaging gently. Rinse well and pat dry Apply ALPHAMOIST Oil free moisturizer Or Safe Sunblock Lotion before stepping out.

 

PRICE: Rs.145 for 100gms

SHELF LIFE: 3 years from the date of manufacture.

PACKAGING AND TEXTURE: The Lotus Herbals Apriscrub comes in a plastic tube with a flip cap. This opaque tube is coloured light yellow and has all the relevant details mentioned on it. It is travel friendly and hygienic to use. The scrub is creamy and thick with densely packed small yet rough granules that might be somewhat harsh for face if intended to be used daily, especially if your skin is sensitive.


MY EXPERIENCE

Since I have oily acne-prone skin, my face is prone to acne, pimples, whiteheads and blackheads. I use it twice every week on wet face. I massage my face gently with upward circular motions using this scrub for about a minute or two. It doesn’t irritate my face at all and cleanses the impurities, oil and dirt conveniently. It has a creamy base that helps spread the scrub easily but at the same time, doesn’t act detrimental to my oily skin. Instead, it leaves my skin smooth, soft and not at all stretchy!
