Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing Tan Removal Scrub Review
I have stopped experimenting with face scrubs and have been a loyal user of Lotus Whiteglow Scrub but it has been finished long ago and I was in dilemma what to buy next. I have earlier used the Biotique Papaya Scrub which have thicker heavy consistency and can be a little too much for sensitive skin so, I used it up as a body scrub. As I haven’t used Biotique in the longest time. I got hands on this Papaya Anti tan scrub from Biotique, Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing Tan Removal Scrub.
Product Claims:Papaya is a luscious tropic fruit with enzymes known for revitalizing and healing benefits This Revitalizing Tan-Removal 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.
Ingredients: Papita (Carica papaya), Kela (Musa sapientum), Khajoor (Phoenix dactylifera), Neem (Melia azadiradrachita), Methi (Trgonelia foenum graecum), Yasad bhasm (Zincum), Ban haldi (Curcuma aromatica), Aam beej (Magnifela indica), Bees wax, Gun acacia (Acacia arabica), Moongphali (Archis hypogea), Himalayan water Q.S.
Directions for use: Massage on wet face and neck with fingertips. Avoid eye area. Remove with water or damp washcloth. Use daily or as needed.
Price: Rs. 520 for 235 gms / Rs. 199 for 75
Packaging: I loathe these tub packaging’s but Biotique has been delivering their products in these since forever. Biotique upgraded the packaging from all green to white and green combination which is more appealing to me and I like the symmetrical shape of the new tub it looks more functional and the lid under cap protects the product from leaking and messing around. The packaging has become sleeker and easy to carry along.
My Experience with Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing Tan Removal Scrub:
Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing Tan Removal Scrub is not as pretty as Lotus white glow or the regular apricot scrubs as it is muddy grayish white in color with almost black color scrubbing granules. The consistency is cream and on the thicker side but it is not as thick the Biotique papaya one and spreads quite nicely with minimum effort. The application will be best on a damp face.
Texture: The granules are big enough to give a good exfoliation results and doesn’t feel harsh on skin but be gentle while massaging and slowly and softly scrub your whole face. They don’t feel gritty or coarse on skin but works efficiently on removing stubborn blackheads from the skin. I will suggest first rub it in between the palms to soften the formula and then massage on the facial skin so that it doesn’t feel harsh against the skin.
Fragrance: Bio Papaya Tan Removal Scrub has a mild fruity fragrance, quite close to papaya fruit and I guess it is the same as the one in Biotique Papaya scrub.
Results: It leaves my skin mildly hydrated and no oily residue at all, so I guess this will work equally well on oily/combination skin giving them a clearer and brighter skin. It gives a polished look to the skin and makes it soft, smooth and radiant but that is usually we get with all the scrubs. I have not been tanned currently so cant comment n its anti tanning or tan removal behaviour.
It can be used as a scrub cum face pack due to its creamier consistency that can be allowed to dry down on the skin after the scrubbing job. It gives a firmness and tight feeling to the skin.
