This time on – Vaadi Herbals Instaglow 24 Carat Gold Scrub.
Price: INR 80 for 15 g
Shelf life: 3 yrs.
Key Ingredients: 24 Carat Gold Leaves, Aloe vera, Sandalwood, Turmeric, Grapeseed extract.
The way I see it:
This scrub comes in a tiny tub with a screw-on lid.
The scrub is a shiny yellow cream with shimmering gold particles. Believe the scrub granules to be of walnut.
I am not a believer of precious metals being used in skincare products. I am fine as long as they don’t cause any adverse reactions on my skin.
If its real gold – all the more good! 😛
The product is creamy and 1 teaspoon of it (as shown in the below pic) is good enough for a single use on both the face and the neck.
This 15 g. tub lasted me for 4 uses easily.
The scrub granules are not abrasive & help in good exfoliation.
It also instantly brightens the skin (probably that is what the brand calls – instaglow!) and does not dry/stretch it out.
This tiny tub comes handy when travelling, though tub packaging has the concern of being unhygienic.
Only con, I find in the product is the fragrance!
Again probably the third product – which happens to be a scrub the third time around as well – that has a men’s cologne fragrance.
I really don’t get the funda of what’s with srcubs & masculine fragrances! 😀
The fragrance in this case, vanishes upon rubbing the scrub on moist skin.
Another con is that the entire list of ingredients not being mentioned on the label.
Overall, I liked using this non-abrasive scrub that didn’t leave my skin taut after a use, but with a nice bright face.. if only for the fragrance! 🙂
HnB Ed: Product sent by PR for review. My review is honest as usual, since my skin comes first before any brand.
