Sometimes, I have so many things to try out that I get overwhelmed and keep a few for later use. Unfortunately, I tend to forget where I keep these products and end up finding them months after I received them. Anyhow, this happened with the Exfoliator I am going to review today. It came in Fab Bag almost a year ago. I found it recently and have been using it ever since. Here is the detailed review!
Product: Neemli Naturals Bengal Gram Exfoliator
Price: 425 INR
Quantity: 50 g
Claim: A complete herbal cleanser and polisher, the Neemli Bengal Gram Exfoliator is an invigorating face and body wrap that is packed with traditional herbal ingredients that promote healthy and fresh skin.
Ingredients: Gram Flour, Rice Flour, Lentils, Turmeric, Sandalwood Powder, Filler’s Earth (Multani Mitti)
Neemli Naturals Bengal Gram Exfoliator comes in a small 50 g sachet. The sachet is further packed in a clear plastic bag that makes it safe for travel and use. The sachet has a zip-lock style closure that you can close to keep it safe for future use. This powder scrub has a slightly woody scent that is barely noticeable.
The texture is quite smooth and the powder turns into a fine paste when I apply it in the shower. I did not have enough time to use it as a body wrap even though I think it is totally feasible to use it that way. Gram flour-based products are better suited for oily skin, this scrub worked well for my dry skin too. My skin did not feel dry after using this scrub. I may not use this in winter though when my skin is super sensitive and dry.
I think I got roughly 8 uses out of this pack which means each use cost me about 50 INR each. For the simple ingredient list, it seems a bit much even though I do appreciate how easy to use it is. I think with slight trial and error, I can create my own body scrub like this at home at a fraction of the cost of the product.
Despite the fact that this body scrub/wrap worked well for me, I think the price tag is too high for me to repurchase it. Being made out of simple ingredients, there is no reason why I cannot prepare my own concoction at home. This body scrub/ wrap can be used by people of all skin types.
