Skin Type: Normal to dry
I am always on the lookout for sulphate-free and paraben-free products, so when I recently came across the brand Fizzy Fern, I was quite intrigued. Even though most of their products are really expensive, I still went ahead and bought the Espresso Body Scrub. After using it for quite a while now, I wanted to share my experience with you all. So without further ado, let’s jump right into the review. Keep reading…
What The Brand Claims: An exfoliating body scrub made to pamper the coffee lover in you. It is full of anti-microbial and anti-oxidant properties that removes dead skin, boosts circulation and imparts an instant glow.
Packaging: First of all, kudos to the brand for the packaging! I have never come across such a luxurious and innovative concept before! The scrub comes in a beautiful cylindrical cardboard box that is solid as well as sturdy. As you open it, you will find the plastic tub inside that contains the product. All the important details such as date of manufacturing, shelf-life, price, key ingredient list as well as directions to use are clearly mentioned. All in all, the packaging is stunning, luxurious as well as travel-friendly. A big thumbs up from my side!
Directions To Use: Lather a generous amount onto damp skin, massage well and rinse thoroughly.
My Experience With The Product: Fizzy Fern Espresso Body Scrub has a thick, creamy texture. It is easy to work with and beautifully spreads on the skin. It contains tiny exfoliating granules that effectively get the job done. I use it as a body scrub and also to exfoliate my feet, elbows and knees. It does a brilliant job of exfoliating the skin and removes the build-up of dead skin cells. However, I found it somewhat harsh to be used on the face and even sensitive skin should do a patch test first before using.
I feel this scrub would work best for those with normal to dry skin. In addition, the product is quick and fuss-free to rinse off and does not leave any residue behind. It does not dry out the skin at all, and in fact, leaves it soft and moisturized. Now talking about the fragrance, this scrub has a strong choco-caramel scent that lingers on for some time. However, it can be overpowering for sensitive noses! In fact, you can smell the scent as soon as you open the product tub, it is that prominent! The product is priced at Rs 595 for 100 gm and can be easily found online.
PS: Even though this is a body scrub, I did try it out on my face! However, I experienced prominent tingling and immediately washed it off. Thus, I would strongly advise you to do a patch test first if you wish to use this product on the face.
