Junaili Apricot Face Scrub comes in a plastic tub packaging with a golden lid. The packaging, logo and colors looks classy.
Junaili Apricot Face Scrub comes in a granular, powder form, brown in color. The scent is of pure geranium oil. Personally, I don’t like geranium oil much. I found it in Mitti Se Body Oil first time and it gave me a headache every time I used it. Everyone has their own preference when it comes to essential oils. Though I like other essential oils, this one didn’t go well with me. But since I keep this scrub on my face for only 10-15 minutes, I bear the fragrance and I have got used to it. But those who like geranium oil will find this product very relaxing and calming for sure.
Almost all of us would have used apricot scrubs when we were younger. Everyuth, Himalaya, Lotus Herbals, St.Ives, what not! Every brand has an apricot scrub for sure! So why Junaili? Because Junaili Apricot Face Scrub is 100% pure, natural and handmade at 7000 feet in the Himalayas! Junaili is a family owned business in the Himalayas and they use only the finest of ingredients. Apart from this face scrub, they also have apricot body scrub, apricot facial oil and apricot body oil.
Junaili Apricot Face Scrub contains only 2 ingredients – apricot and geranium E.O. So you can imagine the purity and the effectiveness it will give. I take about one and a half teaspoon of powder, mix it with curd and apply all over my face, scrubbing in gentle circular motions. You can also use milk instead of curd. In the directions, it is mentioned it can be used with water also. But I got best results from curd. When I mix it with curd, it forms a thick paste and looks like chocolate icecream 😀 The consistency becomes similar to the usual apricot scrubs we get from brands. With milk and water, the consistency will be little runny and scrubbing little hard.
After scrubbing, I leave the paste on for 10-15 minutes like a face pack. Why would I waste all the goodness of apricots and geranium to go away just in 1-2 minutes 🤔
Coming to the results, I would say my skin really enjoyed the apricot meal. Apricots are rich in vitamins A & C, both of which are needed for our skin. It made my skin super, super, smooth way better than apricot scrubs from any other brands. The granules are just the right size, not too abrasive. It exfoliates all the dead cells and aids in new cell regeneration. I have actually witnessed this with continuous use. My dull and tired looking face looked fresh, bright and youthful. Like new healthy cells had been formed. I have read that if your skin is damaged due to sun exposure or pollution or any other factor, exfoliating is the best way to eliminate the damaged cells and make way for new, healthy cells to grow.
Junaili Apricot Face Scrub also deep cleanses and unclogs the pores. My nose usually has lot of whiteheads, felt very clean after using this. So I can say it helps in reducing whiteheads also. It also firms up the skin if left on for 10-15 mins.
Junaili Apricot Face Scrub is suitable for all skin types. You can mix it with base of your choice. For the affordable price point and high quality, I would definitely recommend this to everyone.
