It’s time to try out a gel scrub. Yes! It is first time that I am using any gel scrub. I received it from brand TBC for review purpose 😊. Now let me tell you that the ingredient list of this scrub says that it has olive oil which is a comedogenic ingredient and is definitely not safe for acne prone skin. I have acne-prone skin so it took me some time take decision whether to use it or not. But finally I decided to give a try with a feeling “भगवान जी बचा लेना” 😝.

Directions for use: You have to apply a generous amount on clean, dry skin. Gently massage in a circular motion to roll, lift and sweep away dead skin cells. Rinse well with water. For extra enzymatic exfoliation, leave on skin for 1-5 minutes then rinse. Use 1 to 3 times a week depending on skin sensitivity.
Packaging: This gel scrub comes in a hot red colored squeeze tube which has a white colored flip top cap. The tube has an outer cardboard packaging & all the required details regarding the product are provided on the tube as well as on the cardboard packaging. I am glad that this gel scrub comes in a tube packaging which makes it use easy as well as hygienic. The red colored packaging of this product will easily draw your attention in the crowd of products.
My opinion about this product: It is a clear gel with tiny white color beads. These beads are very mild in nature and not at all harsh on skin. It is enriched with the goodness of pineapple, pomegranate and keratinase extracts. Brand claims that the product is fragrance free but it is not, it has a nice fragrance which is not at all overpowering.
You need to wet your face & neck before applying this scrub. It spreads evenly on the face so it is easy to massage. The scrub particles are effective enough to remove dead cells on the skin and leaves behind a soft, smooth & radiant skin. My skin feels a bit try post application so I need to apply a moisturizer to balance moisture of skin.
As I mentioned earlier it had olive oil which can cause trouble to acne-prone skin but I haven’t faced any problem but still recommend people to go for a patch test before using it. Overall I liked the product but never noticed anything like ‘rolling, lifting & sweeping away dead skin’ and skin whitening effect.
