Staying in a hot and humid city for 4 years of my college made my skin tanned and uneven. Honestly, when I looked at myself at the end of the college life, I felt like is it even me? How did I get so much tanned? During the end semester breaks, I used to try out a lot of DIYs and try to remove all that tan from my body. But as soon as I headed back, my skin became as it was just within a few days.
I then came across this product that claims that it removes tan so I thought of giving it a shot. And guess what? It actually worked wonders! If you want to know how I removed my stubborn 4 years’ tan then keep reading! 🙂

So this is the product I am talking about. It is so mild and 100% natural so you don’t have to worry about any harmful chemicals damaging your skin. Here’s a detailed review of it.
Okay, so let’s start with the packaging. It comes in a cardboard box that is nicely sealed. Inside, you’ll find the product that has the signature Biotique packaging, a green lid, and an off-white container.

Who can use it
It is ideal for both men and women suffering from skin tanning. Also, if you are suffering from pigmentation or uneven skin tone you can use this scrub to get rid of them.
How much does it cost
The MRP of the scrub is ₹ 199, but I got it at a discounted price of ₹ 149.
What’s the quantity of the product
You get 75g of the product that lasts longer.
How often should you use it
Since this is a scrub with fine granules, it can be used 2 to 3 times a week depending upon the severity of the tan. If the tan on your body is old, you may use it 4 to 5 times a week as well.
How to use it
As per the directions on the package, it says, Massage on wet face and neck with fingertips. Avoid the eye area. Remove with water or damp washcloth. Use daily or as needed.
Where to use this scrub
As per the instructions on the packaging, it says one has to apply it over wet face and neck. However, I was suffering from overall body tanning so I started using it all over my body. And since this is 100% natural and made from pure ingredients, it is very much safe to use on the body as well.
How I like to use it
So I didn’t go by the directions on the packaging as to how and where to use the scrub. I had to get rid of the tan from the whole body so I started using it all over. These were some simple steps I followed:
- I make sure my skin is wet before I use the scrub.
- In case I have pores on my face that need to be cleansed, I wash my face with lukewarm water and make sure the pres are opened enough.
- I then take a small quantity, probably a pea-sized amount and gently massage my face and neck with circular motions.
- On the rest of the body, I follow the same steps.
- I massage the scrub a bit more where I find more tan.
- After scrubbing, I wash it off with normal water and pat dry.
I used this scrub 5 days a week initially when I had just returned back home after college since I was tanned all over. I continued doing this for a month and then gradually reduced the number of days I used to 4 times a week and now I use it 3 times only.
If you have acne prone or sensitive skin, I would recommend you to a patch test before you use it.
My overall experience with the product
This scrub has just made wonders to my skin and I’m so happy that my skin is finally coming to its normal state. Also, since it has smaller granules, it doesn’t hurt on your face or body while scrubbing. Also, it doesn’t dry out your skin unlike other scrubs so that’s a plus point! It exfoliates the skin to a greater extent and leaves it feeling clean. And you just need a small quantity so it will last you so long! And the price at which it comes is just a steal! If you’re looking for an affordable yet effective scrub then definitely check this one out!
Do leave your comments/feedback, it would mean a lot to me. Also, do let me know if you’ve tried this scrub before and what was your experience with it. Keep smiling and stay blessed! 🙂
