FabIndia Melon Face and Body Gel Scrub

NYX mega giveaway  post 5 by Swati

I am a huge fan of FabIndia products and I have picked up quite a few gems over the years. FabIndia products always suit my skin as well my budget. Today I am reviewing FabIndia Melon Face and Body Gel Scrub.

FabIndia Melon Face and Body Gel Scrub Review

  • What it Claims: Our body and face gel scrub, especially formulated for daily use is made with natural active ingredients. It gently exfoliates the skin leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated all day long
  • Price: INR 225 for 100ml.
  • Key Ingredients: Purified Water, Allantonian, Lactic Acid, Walnut Shell, Melon Seed, Glycerine, Aloe Vera Extract.

The scrub comes in a cute plastic tub packaging with a lid and screw cap. The scrub itself is a transparent gel which contains minute granules of what appear to be walnut shell and melon seeds. The consistency is neither too thick and nor too runny and is very easy to spread over slightly wet surface. The exfoliating particles are not at all chunky and do not scratch the skin when applied. Because of its mildness I am able to use the scrub daily.Because of the very same reason, I am very sure this wouldn’t work as a body scrub for anyone. The scrub is way too mild.

Fab India Melon Face Scrub Review+ face scrub for oily skin

My favorite part about this scrub is its smell. It has a very sweet fruity smell that has me reaching out for it every morning. The smell is such that it wouldn’t bother even those with sensitive noses. It claims to gently exfoliate the skin leaving you refreshed and invigorated all day and I must say that it lives up to its claims. After using this scrub, my skin feels squeaky clean and so smooth. What’s more, it even keeps my blackheads at bay. I have been using it regularly for 2 weeks and all my blackheads have gone, never to return back. It isn’t that effective on whiteheads, though. I have oily skin and not once did I feel like it dries my skin too much. It removes excess oil without leaving my skin dry.

What I did not like in Fab India Face And Body Gel Scrub


  • Contrary to its claim, it won’t be very effective as a body scrub.
  • The tub packaging is very irritating. I hate digging into the tub with my bare hands every time I want to use this.
  • Only key ingredients are mentioned on the pack.
  • Only available in FabIndia stores.

 Will I purchase it again: Yes. I am in love with its fragrance and the mild exfoliation it provides.

        I luv Oriflame ones, TBS and ofcourse Lush! 🙂 🙂 Their Glorious mud mask is my fav but its quite messy to use..which is ur fav?

        • mm mine is body shop olive body scrub as i love olives 🙂
          i have used this also and i found that fab india gel scrub r mainly for sensitive oily skin which can not use all the scrubs….

          • You’re right…the scrub is so mild that it would work great on sensitive skin….but for others, it can work great as a daily scrub na

                • my fav is angels on bare skin from Lush..its the best scrub/cleanser i’ve come across..hav u tried it ever?

                  in fab india the i like the almond and semolina one…very mild and washes away any remaining makeup very easily..

                  • I have never tried anything from lush…waiting to graduate, get a job and then such expensive products from my own pocket :shame: Such an ideal daughter I am na?

                    How does the FI almond one smell?

                    • oh u are dear..hehe..even i never bought any lushies until i started working..but honestly i never even knew they existed then..hehe..i used t save canteen money to buy lippies and watch movies and have fun! sigh! I miss those day… 🙂

    • But I am glad I cant use them as body scrubs…if I started using it all over my body, I wonder how long this chotta sa dibba would last!

  2. prachi this also wont keep your black heads away for long ..only good thing is that it can be used every day but as its a gel scrub it might not suit dry skin .:P

  3. Anamika,
    can u plz suggest a good face scrub for dry skin.
    Wanted to buy St. Ives..but i see all old stock in Mumbai 🙁

  4. yeps MOKP..this wont keep them away for that long unless u use it alternately or once every 3-4days..its too mild actuially…

    btw does anyone know of a tarkeeb for whiteheads?
