YC Whitening Cherry Facial Scrub Review

Yes, sometimes I go crazy and buy stuff with 'whitening' written over them :P I know it is not really going to whiten me, but in India,even deep cleansing/brightening/ glowing is written as 'whitening' so I have learnt to ignore these labels & use whatever piques my fancy :D

I have been on a scrub buying spree recently. Actually,I have been on a 'use as many products as possible and review them all and become the best beauty blogger ever' spree recently :P

So yeah, got this from Flipkart for Rs. 250 for 175 ml. It was something a college friend of mine had mentioned some time ago and I had some flipkart vouchers lying around and I was in a mood to shop for something beautiful and it looked beautiful and I had never used a cherry scrub and you know how we just buy things implusively sometimes :D


Claims include gentle exfoliation, softening and brightening skin and smoother complexion. Apparently cherry decreases the production of melanin! Packaging is standard tube that is the trademark of most exfoliators that we have been using for ages :D Ingredients list is again standard one that we have seen in most scrubs, it has apricot powder, cherry extract, rosemary leaf extract but by and large it is just a big list of this or that chemical. Well, at least it is not tested on animals :)


Quantity is good enough to last for a good 2 months if one uses this 2-3 times a week (only on face). The thing is when I used it,I did not find it satisfactory as a scrub. It is TOO gentle for me and seemed to do nothing great on my skin.There are very little scrub granules so there is not feel of that grittiness that I like to wash off all the dirt on my face that is exposed to pollution every day. It is not very creamy,so it did not lead to any blocked pores on my face, it gave a little moisture and my skin did not feel stripped off all its moisture so that is a good thing. But also it did nothing against my blackheads and whiteheads which is essential for me in any scrub. So in the end I used it as a body wash and finished it off within a month :D


YES-

  • Not abrasive, very gentle on skin
  • Does not strip off moisture and leave skin dehydrated
  • Leaves a little softness behind
  • Lasts a really long time
  • Pretty and sturdy packaging
  • Available easily on Flipkart 
NO-
  • Does not give that feeling of a 'scrub' that I love :P Tooooooo gentle!
  • Does not work on blackheads or whiteheads at all (especially on my skin where they are very stubborn)
  • No whitening or brightening effects seen

Recommended- I don't think this is good scrub for anybody except for someone with very sensitive skin. It could be a better moisture mask. I will not buy it again and my rating is 2/5.
