  • Vitamin C with high antioxidant content boosts production of collagen that helps defend skin ageing, brighten the skin, improve skin tone and texture, enhance skin elasticity and soften the face [1].
  • Hyaluronic Acid helps retain enough skin moisture to give a super-soft and youthful skin, while Almond oil, Silk protein and Shea butter help fade away fine lines, wrinkles and age spots.
  • Vitamin E is a fat-soluble antioxidant that plays a greater role in the maintenance of healthy skin. It penetrates into the deeper skin layers and provides a complete skin care defense against harmful UV rays, thereby giving a wrinkle-free, clear and vibrant skin [2].
  • Regular exfoliation helps to improve skin’s circulation, deeply hydrate, nourish and moisten the skin, revealing a revitalized radiant skin.

Key Ingredients:

  • 1. Almond Oil:- Almond oil extracted from the ripe almond kernels serves as a classic ingredient in several cosmetic preparations. It is high in unsaturated essential fatty acids such as linoleic and linolenic acid along with proteins, fibers, water, vitamins E, D, B1, B5 and B6, niacin, thiamine and minerals that make almond oil a natural skincare ingredient. It has good regenerating, softening, moisturizing, anti-inflammatory and anti-ageing properties that help delay premature ageing, improve general condition, appearance and elasticity of skin, revealing a nourished, polished and smooth skin .
  • 2. Orange peels:- Orange peels have vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that are responsible for healing, lightening and smoothening of skin. They act by cleansing, tightening the skin, opening the pores, controlling the oiliness of the skin, improving skin circulation, balancing skin pH level and by minimizing acne scars to give a clear, bright and elegant skin.
  • 3. Hyaluronic Acid:- Its moisture retention property helps control loss of excess water molecules from the skin, leaving the skin hydrated and moistened .
  • 4. Wheat germ Oil:- It is extracted from the germ/embryo of the wheat kernels that are rich in Vitamin E, beta carotenes and anti-oxidants. It supports natural cellular repair and helps improve skin’s vitality and may reduce fine lines around the mouth and the eyes.
  • 5. Silk protein: Silk protein with hydrating and antioxidant properties helps reduce aging signs. It is easily absorbed in the skin and hence is highly desirable for skin care.
  • 6. Shea butter: It is known for its softening and healing properties that help smoothen the skin, minimize appearances of wrinkles and other aging features and provide a complete UV defense.


The scrub comes in a tub kind of packaging with a spill proof lid. The tub packaging is nice and gorgeous as comes in a transparent sturdy tub inside which there is another golden tub, it gives a nice 3d illusion. The scrub doesn't come with any spatula so one has to dig out the scrub from the tub which is ok if you are using all alone and not sharing your scrub with others.

The scrub is granular but the granules are not so harsh and it has a citrusy fragrance in it. It is cream consistency and thus the granules stick to the skin easily doing their job finely.

My Experience:-

I am using this scrub from last one and a half week now as you can see the tub is no longer look fuller. A small dollop is enough for the face. Having sensitive skin I always scared of using a scrub as it turns my face red after scrubbing but thankfully this doesn't. In fact the presence of hyaluronic acid I feel it lighten up my acne and pimple mark. It is quite effective on my rough skin may be due to the presence of walnut shell particles in the scrub, it makes my nose area and my chin area smooth and soft. The presence of shea butter and oils prevents my skin from further drying which usually happens with other scrubs.

I usually apply the scrub in the evening. I damp my face with water and then I apply the scrub all over my face dropwise. Then with a light-handed just using my fingertips, I scrub in a circular motion all over my face for 1minute as I have sensitive skin and then I wash it off. Dry skin people can scrub for 2 minutes instead of 1minute.

I am a person who does makeup on a daily basis and so my skin gets tired very easily but after I started using this scrub the tiredness of my skin is gone and it definitely started looking brighter and relaxing.
Although I don't prefer to scrub more than twice a week. But for review purpose, I used this scrub thrice a week following as directed in the scrub box and surprisingly it worked beautifully on my skin.

Overall I am really happy with this scrub and definitely, I would love to recommend this scrub to people who have tired, dry, flaky and aging skin.

So that's all for today. See you in my next post.
Love Sammy :*
