Vaadi Herbals Instaglow 24 Carat Gold Scrub

Hey all…I am back with a review of another skincare product.

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 other two I am talking about are Prakriti Herbals Exfoliating Face Scrub & Tvam Apricot & Walnut Body Polisher. You can click on the product names to read their detailed review.

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.

  • lol men's cologne fragrance and scrubs.. hmmm.. yep the prakriti scrub has a really strong scent which is the only thing that stops me from using it as often as I would like to.. 😀

    Love the review and can't wait to get my hands on this product (is the fragrance as bad as the Prakriti one btw?)

    And the earring is gorgeous 🙂
