Skin type: Normal to dry
If you are into cruelty-free and vegan skincare products, then you must be knowing of the brand Plum Goodness. It has definitely come a long way and offers great products with impressive ingredients. I have been trying out their products recently and the one that I am reviewing today is the Chamomile and White Tea Face Scrub. So let’s get started with the detailed review and see how this one fared out for me. Stay tuned…
What The Brand Claims: Reveal the brighter side of you- each time you scrub away dead cells, dirt and dullness. Gentle cellulose beads and effective walnut shell powder make the perfect scrubbing combo, while the antioxidant-rich botanical extracts in the base keep the goodness going beneath the surface!
How To Use: Start with freshly washed, moist face. Massage scrub on forehead, cheeks, nose and chin, in upward-outward circular motion for as long as is comfortable. Wash off, pat dry. Follow with moisturizer or SPF. Use scrub not more than thrice a week.
Packaging: The face scrub comes in a beautiful white and orange cardboard packaging, inside which is housed the product. The tube has a flip-top cap and is hygienic to use. The cap shuts tightly with a click that makes it secure to carry around. All the necessary information such as price, net weight , ingredient list, directions to use and shelf-life are clearly mentioned. I really like how everything is mentioned in such detail, both on the tube as well as on the box. A big thumbs up to Plum for the excellent packaging! 🙂
My Experience With The Product: Plum Chamomile and White Tea Brighten-Up Face Scrub is beige in color and has a smooth, creamy consistency. It contains fine and very gentle red and black colored granules and effortlessly spreads on the skin. However, you do need a good amount of product to cover the face and neck properly. Now, the main issue I faced with this product is that it is way too mild to be qualified as a face scrub! It just feels like a cream with very gentle exfoliating particles. These particles hardly exfoliate the skin, and the point of blackhead removal is totally out of the question. But on the positive side, even if you constantly massage your face for some time, you do not feel it harsh on the skin at all. Neither does it irritate the skin, nor does it cause any breakouts. In addition, I would also like to mention here that as soon as I applied the product, I did experience slight stinging, that I do not like at all. And I feel this would not go well with sensitive skin beauties.
Once I am done massaging my face, I leave it on for about 5 to 10 minutes and then rinse it off. It is quick and easy to remove and comes off with water in one go. There is absolutely no residue left behind, which is great. My skin instantly feels super soft, supple and refreshed. Being a cream-based product, it does not cause any dryness. However, I always do follow up with a nourishing lotion.
I feel this product would best suit those with combination to dry skin and can be used all year round. Coming to the fragrance, it has a subtle scent that literally feels heavenly. It is very soothing and calms down the senses. In fact, sometimes I just open the tube to sniff the product! 😉 It is that good! The product is easily available and is free from parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, SLS, DEA, PABA and animal-derived ingredients.

Final Thoughts: This scrub has a smooth and creamy texture with gentle exfoliating particles. It is easy to work with and effortlessly spreads on the skin. However, there is hardly any scrubbing action, which defeats the entire purpose. Along with this, I just do not like the tingling sensation that I feel on my face after applying the scrub. Other than that, it leaves the skin soft, supple and refreshed and instantly brightens it up. And,the heavenly fragrance is beyond amazing!
To conclude, I would say that if you are looking for a very basic scrub for mild exfoliation, you can give this a try. But I would not be repurchasing this and it was a total miss for me! I am very happy with my VLCC Indian Berberry Face Scrub and will stick to it. I had high hopes from this product and was really excited to try it out, but sadly I was just disappointed.
Till next time,
