What the brand says: This exfoliating scrub is blended with pure Papaya fruit to dissolve dead surface cells, unclog pore openings and smooth the way for clear skin to surface. Gentle refining action uncovers skin’s natural brightness for a younger-looking complexion.
My Take on Biotique Bio Papaya Revitalizing Tan-Removal Scrub:
Packaging: The scrub comes in a travel-friendly tub. The only downside is that you need to dip your fingers in order to get the product, wish it came with a spoon/applicator.
Texture: The scrub is creamy yet clay-like and has circular-rough granules that help exfoliate the skin. Because the texture is clay-like and not creamy or oily, it feels good on my combination-oily skin.
Fragrance: The scrub has really mild sweet scent which isn’t bothersome.
How I use and after-effects: To use, take a small quantity and massage on wet face and neck with fingertips. Avoid eye area. Remove with water or damp washcloth. Use as needed. I like to massage the product on my damp skin and keep it for about 10 minutes (like a facial mask) before rinsing off.
I love using scrubs on daily basis and got this because the word ‘anti-tan’ looked appealing, thanks to my tanned skin from a recent trip. Also, this scrub had some great reviews and I decided to give this a try! Products that are cheap and super-effective at the same time make a great deal and putting this to test was a must. So, I have been using this for the past 1 month and I can already see a great difference in my skin! First talking about the exfoliating property, the product effectively buffs away dead skin cells but you need to be gentle with the product as the granules are quite harsh. If you have sensitive skin, avoid using this everyday as it can cause skin inflammation. Also, if you are on acne medications or using any retinoid creams or pills, use the scrub not more than once a week. Now coming to the after-effects, I instantly saw results after 1 use itself! Tan seemed to have lightened and skin looked fresh and brightened. After using the scrub 2-3 times a week for almost a month, I feel the tan has significantly lightened and I absolutely love the natural glow I see after rinsing off the scrub. Another difference I have seen is that my skin does not feel dry right after using the product but it does feel stretchy and dry after continuous usage; maybe its just me or the weather. If you have very oily skin, this scrub is going to definitely reduce the oiliness and shine on your face.
I feel this product is a catch for the price and skin benefits! At least for me because I have never come across a product so cheap that can effectively remove tan quickly. I give this a thumbs up.
- Little goes a long way
- Effectively exfoliates
- Makes skin brighter, softer and glowing every time you use
- Helped lighten my tan
- Can be used on body too
- Tub packaging makes it unhygienic to use
- I wish the exfoliating granules were tiny and less-harsh
