I keep on the look out for new face scrubs and probably have never repurchased any till date, though I have loved a lot of them from various brands in the past!
I picked this Bottega Di Lungavita Vita-Age In Scrub from Nykaa.
PRICE – INR 790 for 75 ml.
AVAILABILITY – Nykaa or bottegadilungavita.in
WHAT THE BRAND CLAIMS –
- This non-aggressive yet extremely effective scrub removes dead cells from the skin’s surface while promoting their replacement with new cells and an improved oxygenation of the skin, leaving it soft and radiant with a uniform colour.
- It improves the conditions of the skin worn by time and cleanse deeply, removing dead cells and impurities. Cellular renewal provides the foundation of any aesthetic improvement treatment for all skin types.
- The micro-granules that perform a mechanical action are immerged in a soft cream, which is rich in natural active ingredients that, when massaged in, perform a softening action, allowing for deep-down cleansing even on sensitive skin.
Vegetable Ceramides, Sweet Almond Oil, Olive Oil, White Grape Extract, Shea Butter, Vitamin E, Natural Gommage.
MY TAKE –
This scrub has an off-white creamy base with apricot shell granules. The granules are perfectly sized and in good quantity in the cream base.
The creamy base of the scrub is perfect for applying the scrub all over the face. At the same time – its ain’t too rich for it to block pores and cause breakouts. It is also easy to wash away and there is no slimy feeling.
Upon washing, the skin feels hydrated and not dry, patchy or stretched out – unlike from most other scrubs. The skin feels supple and baby soft after each use and that’s what I love this scrub for!
The scrub particles are not harsh against the skin nor feel abrasive. The dry patches usually around my nose corners are get rid of easily with each use of this scrub.
It also managed to lodge off superficial blackheads from the skin, but the ones that are buried a little deep in the skin – this one couldn’t budge them out.
Since this product comes packaged in a tube, its convenient to use every time and also to carry along during travel.
One tube lasted me for 3-4 months easily with twice a week usage.
I cannot comment on the “anti-aging” action of this scrub, since I hardly expect 2-3 minute scrubbing business to hand out anti-aging benefits to my skin!
The ingredients list is a mixed bag, but showed no reaction on my skin (my skin can behave sensitive at times and go mad!) and the “baby soft” feeling after every session is something great!
The price might seem high for a scrub, but is worth it!
One can look forward to a nice scrubbing session for their facial skin with this Bottega Di Lungavita Vita-Age In Scrub that offers good hydration alongside a “baby soft” feel after each use.
