I always loved products by Kama Ayurveda...but that love is increasing more and more with each passing day. The Mridul cleanser is something I cannot do without, as you may have read earlier. Nalpamaradi Thailam is something I have been liking lately too. And to increase my love is the Kumkumadi Brightening Ayurvedic Scrub!
So, in 6 words...I am in love with this! There is a reason why it won the " Best Scrub award- Vogue Beauty Awards 2014".
The scrub comes in a bright orange cardboard packaging with gold accents. A glass tub contains the product and a small wooden spatula is also provided (very thoughtful!). Since the tub is glass, it is quite heavy and bulky. Also the tub is a little cumbersome to use, but since the product is so good, I make an extra effort :D
Frangrance is very ayurvedic, but I got used to it after a couple of times. It isn't bothersome at all.
The scrub is yellow with a fine walnut shell particles which are gentle on the skin. The texture is very creamy which nourishes and hydrates the skin well. (thanks to all those amazing ingredients!)
I massage this for around 2 minutes (the creamy texture helps) and wash it off with cold water. Along with mild exfoliation, it makes my skin so so soft, smooth and radiant. It leaves the skin plump and hydrated! It does brighten, but the effects are temporary on me. It hasn't reduced dark circles (how can a scrub do that anyway?!) or pigmentation (I never expected it to).
Price : 795INR for 50g
Kumkumadi Brightening Scrub is no doubt a lot costlier than most of the other drugstore scrubs available.....But it is, without a doubt, the best scrub for dry skin/winter months, that I have tried so far! It contains amazing ingredients, nourishes the skin so well and makes my skin so soft and glowy everytime I use it. This goes in my HG list now!!
I have oily-combination skin and it has worked well for me too and dry skinned women will surely love this a lot more.
With winter coming, we all need somthing more nourishing and I highly recommend you all to give this a try if you can!
