How many of you were introduced to the three step skincare regime of cleansing, toning and moisturizing, along with exfoliation (to be done twice a week)? I am sure all of you would have, as it was narrated time and again by all the beauty gurus.
I started skincare regime in my mid 20’s and tried numerous cleansers, exfoliators, toners and moisturizers.
With an acne prone skin, it was obvious that my skin wouldn’t be happy using few products and vice versa. So I ended up testing many products because of which I have a huge list to review, but for now let’s focus on exfoliators only.
Exfoliators are products that help in scrubbing off the dead skin from your face or body to bring out the healthier glowing skin.
There is a cycle of 28 days during which the lower layers of skin comes to the surface, while the layer on top sheds off. This is a continuous process until we are alive.
Now the role of an exfoliator is to remove that dead skin which sits on top of the skin, so that a healthy an bright skin shines out.
Their texture is grainy and they come in powder as well as cream form. Cream based exfoliators have to be applied directly on the face with little water. Rub gently on the face for few minutes and then wash it off with water.
The powder based exfoliators have to be first mixed with water or milk to form a creamy texture. This paste is applied and rubbed on the skin like described above.
If you go out in the market there are variety of exfoliators, both drugstore and high-end brands that are available to confuse the consumers. However there are few that stands correct to what they promise.
In this post I would review Forest Essentials Facial Ubtan which might give you guys a fair idea about the product. So let’s get started..
It is a powder based exfoliator that contains all natural ingredients like pistachio seeds, rose, orange peel, fenugreek, neem leaf and many other herbal extracts. The product is free from harmful chemicals and not tested on animals.
The best part is the fragrance because as soon as you unpack you can smell rose in the product.
It is in powder form, to be mixed with rose water, aloe vera juice, or milk to form a creamy paste and then gently massaged into your face. Wash the face with cold water once done scrubbing
Yes it does what it promises. After using this product you will feel like you have a porcelain smooth skin.
The product is free from chemicals and skin feels breathable after using it. In my case this product with net weight of 70 grams lasted for 3-4 months, considering I used to exfoliate twice in a week.
Hope this review was helpful. Don’t forget to leave your comments and subscribe to the weekly newsletters. I would be interested to know your suggestions on what should I review next..
Till then, Keep shining <3
