Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub
In my latest visit to Fab India I came out laden with goodies, my product for today being one of them. I have acne prone oily skin on my face and normal skin otherwise so when I saw Fab India’s Neem Tulsi face and body gel scrub it sounded like 3 awesome products rolled into one, I HAD TO have it!

My experience with Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub:
I have been using this Gel scrub for a week. The scrub has minute granulesthat are smooth and don’t irritate the gentle facial skin. This product doesn’t lather and hence a fairly large quantity is required to bathe. I would be using two 2 rupee coin sized scoops every day.
What I like about Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub:
- Pack- Most Fabindia products come in this standard Tub style. The pack has a scr@w- on cap and it fits tightly so there’s no chance of any spillage. Also the size is good for travel.
- Product- it applies well on the face and doesn’t irritate or break me out. It smells of Tulsi, more than Neem. But it’s not an organic smell, a little clinical. But I don’t mind.
- The gel has 3types of granules- brown, green and white coloured ones. All the granules are mild which was very good. The Tulsi leaves is a lovely organic touch to the gel, which I like. I don’t know however if it helps to add to the ‘invigorating or refreshing the body’.
- I can however say that I bought this gel because my acne has been acting up for a few days and this product didn’t aggravate it. And I’m glad I did. Girls with troublesome skin can definitely use this as a mild facial scrub every 2 days. When used indulgently (like in my pics below) it leaves the skin soft and smooth and leaves me happy!
What I don’t like about Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face and Body Gel Scrub:
- Pack- Tub style. Being a scrub it gets under my nails (literally) and I dislike digging every timeto get rid of the stray granules. Also, while bathing I have dripped loads of water into the tub every time I try to dig out another scoop- so not happy.
- Product- It doesn’t lather! I can’t come to terms with the fact that a bath scrub doesn’t lather! One can argue that it’s a gel (Duh! I should have guessed), but it took me nearly 3 days to get a rhythm on how much I should be scooping out. I just didn’t know when to stop! (Shower gels seem to have spoilt me rotten, I need lather!!)
- The smell doesn’t last, AT ALL! I wish it did then, I would have rated this product even higher then. We girls like lingering smells and Fabindia should know that by now (tsk tsk)
- Price: for the quantity that is required every time you use it, it’s pricey. But if you use it as merely a face gel scrub, then its goooood.
Good, but pricey! It’s a good face scrub if you ask me, but for the body as a bath scrub? Naah…
