Hi girls! I am not a person who makes lots of impulse buys when it comes to beauty products. But recently I did buy something purposelessly. It’s the new Lakme Blush & Glow Face Scrub in strawberry version. The packaging was quite simple but its attractive red outlook just lured me towards itself and I ended up adding this to my shopping cart. Today, after using it for some time, I am going to share Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Face Scrub Review with you. So, bear with me to know how it worked on me.
Product Name: Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Face Scrub for Strawberry Kissed Skin
Price & Quantity: You have to pay Rs.130 for 50gm of scrub
Ingredients: See in the image below.
Shelf life: 23 months from the date of manufacturing
Availability: This face scrub is a new launch from Lakme. This can be found in leading beauty stores and departmental stores. It is available in various online sites with lucrative discounts.
Packaging & Appearance: The strawberry enriched facial scrub comes in a bright red matte plastic squeeze tube. The tube has a pure white plastic screw cap that secures the opening from which the product comes out. Both the tube and the cap are made of good quality plastic.
I have dropped the pack a few times absent-mindedly but the pack hasn’t budged a bit. As the company promotes it a salon quality product there is no label graphics to be found in the pack. All the necessary information is written in white colour. The tube is quite compact; it easily fits into my handbags.
This defoliator has an off-white cream base in which medium sized brownish granules are distributed. The base is not too creamy making it perfect for all skin types. The scrubbing beads are of similar size and do not feel harsh if not rubbed vigorously.
The texture and consistency make the exfoliating power on the higher side. The feel this product gives me is quite comparable to my HG scrub, the St. Ives Apricot scrub.
Fragrance: The scrub has very fruity kind of smell. Some hint of strawberry scent is likely to be found on it. The fragrance altogether is very subtle and not long-staying. I like the smell a lot.
Swatch: See in the image below.
My Experience: This face scrub is a part of Lakme’s new Blush & Glow regime. The Blush & Glow regime for facial cleanup consists of 3 skincare products – a facial cleanser, this face exfoliator and a face mask.
Lakme had a salon cleanup range like the new range before which had a scrub like this. I think, they have improved the formula and came out with this new one.
The skin around my nose area is very sensitive. It used to get irritated by the previous version which, to my relief, is not the case with this new one. I apply this scrub 2-3 times a week as per my skin’s condition. I massage the scrub with wet hands. Its medium sized granules do not feel do harsh on skin.
They do their job nicely at deep cleansing. The cream base helps to retain skin’s moisture balance so my skin does not get taut afterwards. From first use itself there is a subtle glow on my skin as it helps to reveal new cells. The glow lasts 2 days maximum. It did not cause new pimples on my skin.
One thing I have noticed with it, it takes some time to work on extremely stubborn blackheads. But, it clears them off to some extent.
1. Provides deep defoliating experience
2. Makes skin glow in health
3. Does not irritate my skin or cause break-outs
4. Granules are not sharp
5. Nice strawberry fragrance
6. Classy and compact packaging
7. Cream base is non-greasy
1. Not free from sulphates
Jhalli Diva Verdict: 4.85/5
Will I Repurchase? Yes. But that would take some time I presume. I have this tube and my St. Ives scrub to finish off first.
Do I Recommend? Sure! I would recommend this to someone (except sensitive skin obviously) who is searching for a non-greasy deep exfoliating scrub within 150 bucks. The appearance makes it perfect choice for including in bridal trousseau.
Overall Summary: Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Face Scrub is a good quality budget friendly facial exfoliating product that cleanses my skin deeply. It helps to get rid of dead skin layer from the surface of the skin with its improved formula.
So, that’s all about Lakme Blush & Glow Strawberry Face Scrub. Have you tried this new launch? What is your favourite skin care product from Lakme?
Until next time
