Facial scrubs contain coarse particles which helps in exfoliating the skin. When you apply a face scrub, the particles rub against your skin and remove all the dirt from your skin pores. It also removes dead skin cells, making your skin smoother and softer. The addition of a good facial scrub in your weekly skincare routine will provide you with healthy and glowing skin. Basically scrubs are very important part of our skincare routine. जानते हो स्क्रब पर इतना ज्ञान क्यों दे रही हूँ ? Tadaa! I am reviewing VLCC Coffee Sugar De Tan Exfoliating scrub in this post 🙂

Packaging: This scrub comes in a sleek white color tube packaging, with all the details of the product printed on the back of the tube. All the details are printed in English & you will find each & every detail like direction of use, price, quantity, DOM, shelf life are mentioned on the label. The cap closes with a click and you need to squeeze the tube to get the product. Sometimes cap creates issue while opening seems like vacuum has created (again a strange observation by me 😉 )
My opinion about the product: It is a gel based scrub and smells exactly like coffee. Coffee and sugar are the main ingredients of this scrub. They both are known to be natural, effective and surprisingly gentle on the skin. The caffeine in coffee helps stimulate blood circulation which reduces puffiness or inflammation. It also works great to remove tanning, tighten and brighten the skin, improve skin texture, reducing wrinkles and signs of ageing. My expectation was pretty high from this scrub.
The scrub is gel based (tiny particles for exfoliation) and has a runny consistency, it is difficult to handle it as a scrub. I have used it multiple times and cannot see any visible results. Initially I thought it will show effectiveness after 4-5 applications but I was wrong. This is not at all effective in removing tan as well as simple exfoliation is not possible with this scrub. You can feel the particle but with the gel it seems like they are not working on your face. It has coffee and sugar so I was expecting it a great exfoliator. But it failed in removing my blackheads and dead skin.
Good thing is that it doesn’t irritate my skin nor make it dry. Apart from this there is no reason to buy this product. I even used on my neck when I was not getting any result on my face but again it failed. Very disappointed with this product 🙁
