Exfoliation is a part of every skin care routine but it shows effective change only when done properly. For a standard exfoliating scrub, 2-3 applications a week is considered enough. Gritty scrubs are not at all suitable for people with sensitive or acne-prone skin. Mildly exfoliating daily scrubs shows great results in such skin types.
Daily exofoliators are a hybrid between cleansers and defoliating scrubs. They have cleansing base instead of heavy creamy base of standard scrubs. They also contains limited amount of scrub granules for exfoliation.

Packaging: This daily scrub comes in a plastic tube with flip-open cap. The packaging is very simple yet sturdy. It’s just the standard packaging in which most face washes and scrubs come. The pack mentions complete ingredients list and detailed usage guide. The packaging is leaf-proof and travel-safe.
Colour & Consistency: The scrub has transparent and colourles sgel base. The sparsely distributed scrub granules are coloured in bright green. It is practically a gel face wash with just a few scrub particles spread here and there. The gel base is paraben free and creates minimum lather.
Fragrance: It has a very light citrus and aloe smell. The mild fragrance does not stay at all. Sensitive nose people will like this daily scrub.
Quantity & Price: This daily scrub is priced at Rs.115 for 100ml. This is the only size available as of now. Most ayurvedic face washes in the budget-friendly category comes around Rs.100-120 for 100ml. So, the price seems okay considering the quantity. This one pack will last for 3-4 months if used once a day.
My Overall Thoughts:
My combination skin loved gel based face cleansers. That is why I invested in this mild vegan face cleanser. I have used couple of other daily scrubs in the past including Himalaya. Frankly speaking, their exfoliation power did not impress me a bit. The same happened with this one as well.
The amount of scrub particles are so low that they do next to nothing in terms of exfoliation. However, the gel base of this works perfect as a mild face cleanser for my skin. It does not dry out my skin yet removes oil, dirt and other superficial impurities quite well. My skin does not cry out for moisture after washing my face with it.
Still I apply a bit of moisturizer to keep the moisture level intact. I have acne prone skin. This wash did nothing to the existing pimples but it did not aggravated them as well. I love using washable makeup. This one alone is enough to get rid of them. It can be said that, this is a good quality face wash but not an effective exfoliator for my skin.
