Fuschia Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub with Pomegranate Pearls Review

Our skin outermost surface tends to come in contact with so many impurities in daily life. The softness and purity of the skin is lost to greater extent if we don't make an effort to exfoliate it regularly. The usual practice of ripping off the dead skin layer is an essential part of routine skin care for face as well as body. Exfoliation is required because it removes those cells that are clinging on top layer, so that the fresher, younger skin cells produced below are revealed for a youthful look. Today I am reviewing Fuschia Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub with Pomegranate Pearls.

Why Fuschia Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub with Pomegranate Pearls:
Enriched with Pomegranate ( punica granatum ) extract, a rich antioxidant, this scrub gently exfoliates dead skin cells, unclogs pores, detoxifies & moisturizes skin. Delays fine signs of ageing making the skin feel younger. Free of parabens, petroleum base, artificial tints & synthetic perfumes.

The Health Benefits of a Body Scrub
Just like the skin cells on your face, the cells on your body regularly shed to reveal new, healthier skin underneath. That turnover process slows as we get older. By removing the dead skin cells, you’ll avoid splotches and dark spots, especially around your knees and elbows. Body scrubs are also great for removing self-tanner from your body.

As you massage it over your body, the exfoliating granules help to slough off dead skin, and the rubbing action itself boosts circulation and helps drain your lymph nodes, by increasing blood flow to the skin’s surface. Plus, after all that deep cleansing in the shower, your post-wash moisturizer will be better able to soothe and hydrate your skin. Another important benefit of using a scrub is how good it can feel in the moment. Being mindful of the refreshing texture against your skin and captivating scent that fills the shower allows you to enjoy the treatment as it’s happening—an experience that can lift your mood and affect your outlook as you continue your day or evening.

How to Use a Body Scrub
If your skin is healthy and firm, you can use a shower scrub up to three times a week. But if you have sensitive or thin skin, limit a good buffing to once a week.

Hold off on running the water in the shower and spend a few minutes using your hands or scrubbing tool to rub your scrub in circular motions onto dry skin for full and longer-lasting coverage. Turn on the water and rinse, using your hands to help remove any remaining granules. If you’re short on time, massage the scrub all over your body and rinse during your normal shower routine.

Be careful not to over scrub. Though your body skin is heartier than the skin on your face, it is susceptible to irritation. Always moisturize after you’ve dried off for smooth, nourished skin.

When Not to Use a Body Scrub
If you have a sunburn or are experiencing a rash or other skin condition, give the body scrub a rest. Some of the ingredients and the actual rubbing can further irritate your skin. You should also skip it after shaving.

Price and Qty: Rs 450 for 100 gms.
Shelf Life: 30 months.

My Experience:
The Fuschia Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub with Pomegranate Pearls comes in a cute plastic jar which is transparent and shows the content. I actually liked the tumbler like shape in first look. The jar has a tight screw cap that makes the packaging spill proof and travel friendly as well. The packaging gives no details about the active ingredients.

The scrub is of girly baby pink color that may attract any female instantly and bring a smile on her face. The scrub smells absolutely yummy like a fruity dessert. Though I somehow could relate the fragrance more with strawberry rather than pomegranate. (it may not be same with everyone though). Before I could touch the scrub, I was wondering whether its a normal massage cream or a scrub, because I could hardly notice any granules in it. The scrub looked so soft and smooth like freshly whipped cream. The consistency is just the appropriate.
As I took little quantity to scrub on my face, I realized that the scrub has got very minute granules discretely scattered over the content. I believe the brand has intentionally formulated the product this way, so that it doesn't itch our soft skin. I found the scrub quite effective to slough off dead skin. You may not only use it on your face, but its a perfect remedy to be used on the tougher n rougher parts of our body like elbows, knuckles, heels etc. to reduce dryness of skin caused by varied reasons.

Though its recommended by the brand to moisturize the skin after scrubbing, but the best thing about the Pomegranate Pearls scrub is that it didn't cause me any skin dryness and I decided not to apply any body lotion to check its effect on my skin. If my excessive dry skin can stay hydrated after using this scrub, then I am damn sure the normal skin people would find it much better.

Pros:

  • Free of parabens, petroleum base.
  • No artificial tints. 
  • No synthetic perfumes.
  • Travel Friendly packaging.
  • Soft, creamy texture.
  • Causes no itching or reaction.
  • Smells sweet.
  • Effective on all body parts to remove dead skin.
Cons:
  • The packaging doesn't list ingredients list rather is accompanied with little cards which cannot be kept handy forever.
  • I wish it was a tube packing for more hygienic experience.
  • Expensive. 
The Fuschia Face & Body Exfoliating Scrub with Pomegranate Pearls works towards skin repair in gentle manner and gives bright skin tone afterwards. It can be included in routine shower regime with mild scrubbing or can be used as a weekend skin care therapy, depending on the requirement of your skin.
