Hey Dear Friends… ❤❤❤
Good day everyone! 🙂
The West Prefers a Tan and the East prefers it pale! Yes, I am talking about the skin tone… In the Western countries, the tan might be a symbol of exotic beach vacations, pool parties and such things.. But in the East, tanning isn’t adored or appreciated! Now, although complexion hardly matters, we still want to retain our original skin tone rather than getting tanned and artificially darker!
But alas! We can hardly avoid it! 🙁
Be it any time of the year, especially Summer, prolonged exposure to the sun causes our skin to get tanned and when not removed instantly, it accumulates, resulting in uneven, patchy, darker skin.. 🙁
Scrubs, and preferably Tan-removal scrubs are a must! ❤
The Summers are already gone and it’s Monsoon here… The perfect time to relieve yourself and your skin of all the stress and chill…
So, why not talk about a good tan removing scrub to scrub off all the tan that we have accumulated during those harsh summer days? 😀

MY TAKE ON THE PRODUCT:
The Biotique Bio Papaya Tan-removal scrub comes in a typical green and white Biotique tub packaging (The brand should now change their packaging.. It has really become a bore! 😛 )… The tub is contained within a green and orange cardboard box for extra safety… All the details of the product are mentioned on the body of the tub as well as on the cardboard box… The tub also has an inner lid to avoid any spillage of the product and a screw cap that locks in tightly, thus making it safe for travel purposes… ❤
The scrub has a damn thick, creamy consistency and a faint brownish grey colour to it.. The smell of the scrub is quite mild and resembles the fragrance of apricots.. ( Although it is a papaya scrub, I could no where smell of papaya! 😛 )
The scrub has good amount of scrubbing granules and one small tub of this would last for months.. ❤
This bio-papaya scrub works great as an exfoliator, scrubbing away all the dead and dry skin cells and unclogging the pores..
It makes the skin really soft and smooth post usage and doesn’t dry it out at all.. ❤
Also, It removes the fresh tan to a great extent if not completely and makes the face look brighter… ❤
So, it stands true to all it’s claims of being a tan-removal scrub!
Apart from that, it never broke out my acne prone skin, neither did it increase or harm any pre-existing acne… So, it suits the acne prone skin as well! ❤
The only problem that I faced with this scrub was the size of the scrubbing granules.. They are quite big and personally, I feel them to be a bit harsh against my (non sensitive) skin…
So, in my opinion, it is a great scrub to be used weekly or even twice a week.. But it would be quite harsh on skin if used regularly as a daily tan-removal scrub! 🙁

SUMMING UP PROS AND CONS:
1. Inexpensive and easily available. Buy it from here!
2. Travel friendly.
3. Works great as an exfoliator.
4. Works upto a great extent as a tan-removal scrub.
5. Doesn’t make the skin dry or stretchy.
6. Suits acne prone skin.
1. The scrubbing granules are quite big and harsh on the skin.
2. Might be very harsh for sensitive or thin skin.
3. Cannot be used as a daily tan removal scrub because of the above mentioned reason.
FINAL TAKE: Biotique Bio Papaya Tan Removal scrub is a really great scrub that does what it claims to do and would suit “mostly” all the skin types.. The only con for me is that I can’t replace my daily tan-removal scrub with this due to its harshness!
Hope It Helps ❤
