This summer season and 10 day long vacation had created havoc on my face and had left me with a patchy skin, a tanned face and body. While lack of time and jam packed schedule left me with very little time for myself and specially for any DIYs, so I started searching online for a good scrub and came across this one. The great reviews it received online and a super affordable price caught my eyes instantly and I thought whats the harm in giving this a try and believe me I was not disappointed with my purchase. So lets see how this product worked out for me and my tan.
PRODUCT CLAIMS: The Bio Papaya Tan-Removal scrub has therapeutic properties and it is an ayurvedic recipe with 100% botanical extracts. This exfoliating scrub is blended with pure papaya fruit to dissolve dead surface cells, unclog pore openings and smooth the way for clear skin to surface. Gentle refining action uncovers skin’s natural brightness for a younger-looking complexion. It is organically pure, preservative free, dermatologist tested and no is not tested on animals.
INGREDIENTS: Papita Fruit & Seeds (Papaya), Kela Fruit Pulp (Banana), Khajur Fruit Pulp (Dates), Neem Bark (Azadirachta Indica), Methi Seeds (Fenugreek), Yashad Bhasm (Zin Calyx), Banhaldi Rhizome (Turmeric), Aaam Beej (Mango), Kikar Gum (Acacia Arabica), Moongphali Oil (Peanut Oil), Bees Wax and Purified Water.
PACKAGING: The scrub comes in a tube as well as a tub packaging. I am using the scrub in tube packaging. The body is orange in color and the cap is in Biotique standard green color. Both the packaging are travel-friendly but it is more convenient to use the tube packaging as it is less messy and more hygienic.
HOW TO USE: Wash your face with a cleanser and then take a small amount and apply it to your wet face and neck. Massage the scrub to your face and neck with fingertips in circular motions. Avoid the eye area and make sure to scrub gently. Scrub for around 2-3 minutes depending upon your skin and how much you need. Wash off with water or wipe it off with wet washcloth. Use this scrub 2-3 times in a week.
FRAGRANCE: The fragrance is similar to the Biotique’s Signature fruity fragrance which is mild and not at all bothersome.
TEXTURE: It has a thick clay-like texture and is not greasy or oily. The cream base contains rough granules that help in exfoliating the face properly.
I have been using the scrub for around 4-5 weeks and I have seen a visible change in my face. It has definitely helped in reducing my tanning and giving an even texture to the face. It gives immediate glow to the face and a noticeable difference can be seen instantly. This scrub has not caused any breakouts on my face which is the best thing for me as my skin is acne prone. Apart from this it does what it says which is it takes out the dead skin layer from the face after every use and my face feels super soft after using it. The scrub is used in small quantity in a single application thus one tube can last you several weeks.
The granules are a little harsh and leave a little redness on the face after it’s application. This can however be a problem for people with sensitive skin as the roughness can cause harm and unnecessary abrasion to the skin.
Well apart from it being a little harsh I have no issues with the scrub and as I have an oily skin this scrub has helped me a lot in reducing oiliness and dullness from my face after frequent uses. It has definitely reduced my tanning and has made my skin even toned. It also makes my skin soft and smooth. Although I will recommend that you use a moisturizer after using the scrub because any scrub specially this one, which is little on the harsh side will dry the skin.
