9615D1D7-7956-416C-85A4-F6C948D1706C

* tried on dry skin

Product Description:

Ingredients: Aloe Vera, Water (Aqua, Eau), Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice, Tocopheryl , Glycerin, Glycol Stearate, Jojoba beads.

Description: Botanic Love’s most essential product, our Paraben free exfoliator has a dual action of cleansing and toning the skin. It has a luxurious texture that has all naturally-botanical ingredients. With Aloe Vera as the base, this scrub removes impurities accumulated during the day. This two phase exfoliating scrub utilizes natural sea salt and jojoba beads as a scrubbing agent to help clear skin for a soft, smooth after feel and natural avocado oil as an emollient. Gentle enough to be used everyday during the harsh Indian summer.

Directions: Apply on wet skin while showering in circular soft strokes. No loofah required. Work up a lather, rinse.

My Experience:

Botanic love is natural, SLS n paraben free, simple n has different yet efficient protocols. I have lined up my current routine with their products and looking forward to better results, I think I won’t be dissappointed. Now let’s get to this product…

Packaging: It comes in a recyclable bottle with a screw cap. The label is neat & has all the details. I find the packaging simple & classy.

Texture: It has a blue gel like texture with white grains.  Based on the amount required per usage for me, 210 ml should last for 20-25 times. Description says it can be used everyday, but I don prefer exfoliating more than 2-3 times a week. Since this is a mild Exfoliator, may be alternative days.

Fragrance: It feels cool, pleasant & refreshing. The blue color is a pleasant sight but if it is added or inbuilt color is not mentioned.

Ingredients: The key ingredients mentioned seems good and has lovely benefits for the skin but since the full ingredients list isn’t mentioned, can’t comment on t same. As per my understanding this should have a gel base whose composition is unknown and a natural color should have been added which I prefer avoiding in natural products. 

Efficiency: The grains are mild and can be used even on tender areas. It is mentioned as face & body but I prefer it only for body. As mentioned, no loofah is required, I worked with my hands for gud 5 minutes and washed off. Unlike a chemical product, it lathers less(I like it this way)but spreads really well. Found it easy to apply & wash off. There is a subtle cooling sensation(not the awakening refreshing minty cool type). This does the basic job of exfoliation with ease.  It leaves the skin squeaky clean and smooth. Please follow up with a sunscreen/moisturiser.

Pros:

  • Certiifed natural
  • fuss free usage
  • effective mild exfoliation 
  • subtle cooling n refreshing 

Cons:

  • Full ingredients list missing

My Verdict: If U have realised the necessity to exfoliate but don find time, this is the one for you. Easy, fuss free, effective👍
