Let’s first have a look at few of the ingredients present in this facial scrub :

Coffee Powder : It helps decrease the appearance of sun spots, redness and fine lines. Coffee Powder is also a rich source of Vitamin B3 (Niacin) and also has anti-inflammatory effects. The regular use of coffee also helps combat problems from harmful bacteria. It also helps in fighting against acne. Coffee powder can also be used for post sun-care.

Caffeine : It has a lot of benefits for your skin. Incorporating caffeine in skincare products helps in fighting free radicals which are responsible for causing premature skin ageing. The antioxidants present in caffeine help in attacking these free radicals and eliminate them. It improves the overall appearance of the skin. Caffeine acts as a diuretic. It also helps in combating UV damage and tightens the skin. Caffeine also helps in reducing cellulite.

Almond Oil : This oil is rich in Vitamin E which protects the skin from sun damage and premature ageing. Almond oil also has moisturizing effects which can work for dry skin. Almond oil can also cure dark circles and helps in reducing tan. It also reduces signs of ageing. Almond also has healing properties and can also be used for glowing skin.

How to use :

Wash your face with fresh water.

Apply the face scrub on your face and massage it for around 2-3 minutes.

Rinse thoroughly with water and pat skin dry.

Packaging :

The packaging of the De Tan Facial Scrub is very sturdy. It comes in a white round plastic jar with a separator and a closing lid. The packaging is attractive with floral prints all over. This jar can easily be carried around in handbags and is quite travel-friendly. The scrub has a simple yet beautiful looking packaging.

Formula :

The De Tan Facial Scrub is green in colour and has yellow scrubbing particles which do not feel harsh on the skin. The consistency of the scrub is very sticky or you can say slimy. The scrub adheres to your skin perfectly. The scrub also has a herbal kind of smell which is very mild.

My Experience :

As soon as I opened this jar, I was quite intrigued by the green coloured scrub with tiny, beautiful yellow scrubbing particles inside it. The scrub does not come with an applicator or spatula so either you have to dip your clean fingers or use a spoon inside the jar to scoop out the scrub. The consistency of the scrub is quite sticky and as soon as you apply the scrub on to your skin, it might seem messy but the scrub does its job perfectly. I massage the scrub on to my face for a couple of minutes which might feel adhesive like while scrubbing and the tiny yellow scrubbing particles help in exfoliating the skin perfectly. The scrubbing particles do not feel harsh on the skin. In fact the scrub feels quite moisturizing on the skin and it gently lifts the dead cells from the skin revealing the soft, smooth and supple looking skin underneath.

I love how my skin feels after using this de tan scrub. Yes, I do think that this scrub is effective in removing the tan from your face. I restrict the use of this scrub to two times a week only. This scrub does give you a smoother and brighter looking skin after every use.

However, I did not find this scrub effective in removing the blackheads. This scrub is too mild to remove the blackheads and I don’t recommend this scrub if you are looking for something which can work for your blackhead problem.

The quantity in this jar is huge. You only require a small quantity of this scrub for every application and this jar is definitely going to last for a good amount of time preferably for 4-5 months if used twice a week. I don’t mind spending Rs 350 for this scrub as it is effective in its job and the quantity that you get will also last a long time.

What can be bothersome to a few people is the sticky consistency of this scrub and to say honestly initially I did not like the sticky and viscous texture when I had applied the scrub for the first time. But after seeing the results of the scrub I don’t have any issues with the formula of the scrub anymore.

Overall I am quite liking this De Tan Facial Scrub and I must say this scrub works for my skin. I love the mild exfoliation it provides to my skin without making my skin feeling dry. This is a good scrub which helps in reducing the sun tan with regular use.

So far I m impressed with the scrub and do recommend it to people who are looking for a mild yet effective scrub for their skin.
