Today am going to review one more interesting product from Auravedic. I have previously reviewed their Aloe Vera Gel, Skin Lightening Mask and Anti-Blemish Mask. I loved all of them. I usually get tanned easily and was looking for a good product to remove tan and brighten skin, when Auravedic sent me this face scrub for review purpose. Let’s see whether Auravedic Pure Lightening Skin Polish matches up to my expectations or not.
Turmeric & Red Sandal work to reduce pigmentation, dark spots, while Jojoba beads gently buff away dull, tanned & dead skin to reveal glowing & even skin tone free of blemishes.
Extracts of red sandal, turmeric, aloevera, shea butter, jojoba oil, cetostearyl alcohol, beeswax, coconut oil, C 14-22 Alcohol & C 12-20 Alkyl Glucoside, Triethanolamine, Stearic acid, polyethylene granules, fragrance, purified water, phenoxyethanol, ethylhexyl glycerince, potassium sorbate, butylated hydroxy toluene.
Rs.400 for 100g.
Auravedic Pure Lightening Skin Polish is light baby pink in color like a blush. The color looks lovely and I wished my skin will turn into that color after using it 😄. It has a little strong smell of turmeric.
The consistency of this scrub is creamy with fine particles for exfoliation. The particles are mild and gentle enough for sensitive skin. It can be difficult to spread on a dry skin, so I will suggest you to use it on a damp face.
I take a dime sized amount and massage my face with it. And then I leave it like a mask for around 10 minutes. It has amazing natural ingredients like turmeric, red sandal and saffron and I didn’t want to wash it off immediately. Leaving it on like a mask helps the goodness of the ingredients to be absorbed into your skin.
After washing and patting dry, my face felt so clean and clear. What I like most about it was that it deep cleansed my clogged pores and removed whiteheads. I don’t have blackheads, so can’t comment on those. I like the feel of clean and fresh skin. It also removed some of my tan, lightened and even out skin tone. My dull skin looked smooth, luminous and brighter. I would advice you to follow up with a good moisturizer or facial oil as since the pores are clear, whatever product you use afterwards will penetrate deeper into your skin and work effectively.
The first time I used it, I got some zits on my forehead. But with regular uses, I haven’t noticed anything. Since I have sensitive skin, I usually get zits while using products for the first time till my skin gets used to it.
Coming to its claims of reducing dark spots and blemishes, I haven’t noticed much improvement on it. But for that, you have Auravedic Anti-Blemish Mask which works excellently on dark spots and blemish. This one I feel is more of a skin lightening and brightening product.
I like the fact that it contains the goodness of many natural ingredients like turmeric, sandal and saffron. And its also free from parabens and sulphates. Plus its pocket-friendly as well.
One more thing I like about the brand is that they mention the complete list of ingredients unlike some other natural, ayurvedic brands which lists only key ingredients. But what disappointed me was the presence of polyethylene granules which are actually plastic polymers, non-biodegradable and harmful for the environment. I wish the brand takes this into consideration and make products which are environment safe. After all, beauty is not just about self beauty, but also comes with a environment consciousness 🙂
Does it satisfy all its claims?
It satisfies most of its claims except that it doesn’t reduce dark spots or blemishes.
What I like:
* Particles are mild yet provide good exfoliation.
* Deep cleanses skin and clears out clogged pores.

Use natural granules instead of polyethylene granules which harm the environment.
