It does not matter how many Parabene & Cruelty free brands are present in market, Fuschia have marked it’s presence brilliantly. I took it as just any other brand. But no, it’s not. It’s USP, is the fact that it’s products are handmade, curated to have a special experience by it’s users. The natural ingredients that it uses may not be unique but surely are picked carefully from around the world.
Today I am going to speak about Activated Charcoal Detoxifying Face & Body Scrub by Fuschia. Activated Charcoal is the hottest topic on the web right now. Every brand is coming up with activated charcoal based products. Fuschia shipped this charcoal based face & body scrub few days back to me along with a face pack and a beautiful lip balm. You can check out my instagram post about the products here. I have been using the products since then. And I feel I should review the scrub today before it’s over.
Fuschia Activated Charcoal Detoxifying Face & Body Scrub
The scrub is enriched with activated charcoal, aloe vera & wheatgerm oil. Activated charcoal absorbs toxins & germs from skin while Aloe vera soothes and wheatgerm moisturizes skin gently. The scrub is ideal fit for oily & acne prone skin. The scrub is free of parabenes, SLS & phathalets.
Activated Charcoal, Aloe Vera, Wheatgerm, Olive Oil. As simple as it could get.
Price & Availability
The scrub is priced at Rs. 450 for 100gms. This is looking bit pricey at fist glance. But scrubs generally lasts for long duration since, you always need just a bit to work with every time.
The scrub can be bought from Fuschia website or other shopping websites. The brand is not available offline though.
Fragrance & Texture
This is a fine grained grey colored scrub. It actually works like a skin polish would. It has bit of slippery texture when you first apply it on skin. But after you start working with it, it gives a nice experience. It is easy to wash away. Also does not dry out skin since it contains the goodness of olive oil & wheatgerm oil.
Fragrance wise, I can’t really put down my finger on it. But it is mild yet intriguing. Does not irritate my nose.
This scrub is meant to be used for oily to acne prone skin mainly, which is exactly my skin. I also like to use scrub every 2-3 days to get rid of dead skin, otherwise my pores get clogged. So I mostly like to use tea tree based scrubs but I was quite impressed by the ingredient list of this charcoal based scrub.
Charcoal is supposed to draw out impurities out of your skin. This scrub does nothing less. I apply this scrub over my face and let it stay there for 2-3 minutes and later scrub it off gently massaging. The scrubbing gr annuals are gentle yet effective. I really can see a clearer skin after taking off the scrub. It means it takes away the dead skin very effectively without hurting my sensitive skin.
Since I received a sample only, I did not use it over my body, otherwise I would have gotten only one use out of it. I am sure it would work as an excellent body scrub too.
Will I Repurchase Fuschia Activated Charcoal Scrub?
I absolutely want to. I am sure the 100gm version would last me for many months since I am going to use it for my face only. I am also trying out Botanic Love Tea Tree Scrub, which is another delicacy. I have been alternating between these two scrubs and feel like this is a nice combo.
- The product is from a brand which is cruelty free. Also uses all natural ingredients.
- The scrub is free of parabenes, SLS, Phathalets, synthetic dyes etc.
- The grannuals of the scrub are even and are gentle on skin.
- Suits my oily, acne prone & sensitive skin.
- Does not irritate existing acne on my face.
- Gives a clearer & brighter face.
- Does not dry out skin.
- Does not feel sticky over skin.
- The tub packaging is not really preferable when it comes to skin care. One must take utmost care of hygiene before touching the product or use a spatula.
- The price is bit on higher side but I don’t see this much of a con since it is all natural, effective & would last for a long time.
Do I Recommend This Face & Body Scrub?
I absolutely would want you to try it out. Even if you have dry or normal skin type, you would love it’s effect. The oils present in the scrub nourishes skin without making it feel oily or sticky. The even grannuals work effectively to get rid of the dead skin. Activated Charcoal really suck out all the impurities out of skin. Who are into natural skin care, would definitely admire this parabene & SLS free beauty.
I am sure many of you would have used this scrub already. How was your experience girls?
Lots Of Love.
