My Experience With Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub:

Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub is contained in a sea green plastic, squeeze tube with a silver shaded cap. The packaging is pretty sturdy and can be easily carried around without any tension of leakage or spilling. I found the color of the tube very pleasant and refreshing. The very reference to green tea extracts on the label lifted my mood. Being an avid green tea drinker, any product with a hint of green tea immediately attracts me. The fragrance of the scrub is very sweet, somewhat like candy. It is pleasant till a point of time. But after that, it becomes a little overpowering. One aspect that I really liked was the fine texture of the scrub. The white, smooth scrub has fine granules which are not at all harsh on the facial skin. Initially it is like a cream. But when I started massaging it on my face, I could feel the tiny granules against my skin. However it should not be massaged vigorously or else you will end up with a burning sensation on your skin.

On the other hand, this scrub is not very effective for people who have blackheads problem because the tiny granules cannot efficiently fight against the stubborn blackheads. It may leave you with a red-nose, a mark of your futile efforts to get rid of them. But otherwise it decently exfoliates the skin and removes oil, leaving it fresh and dirt-free. Your skin seems to breathe freely every time you scrub with Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub.

Pros Of Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub:
  • Tiny granules does not feel too harsh on the skin.
  • Contains green tea extracts which are good for skin.
  • Removes oil and dirt leaving the skin fresh and healthy.
  • Pleasant fragrance.
  • Decently exfoliates the facial skin.
  • Attractive and travel-friendly packaging.

Cons Of Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub:
  • Not effective for blackhead problems.
  • Skin feels irritated if massaged with a little pressure.
  • The fragrance can be overpowering for some.

Diva Likes Rating:


Final Note:

As long as you don't have severe blackhead issues, Lakme Clean Up Clear Pores Face Scrub does an impressive job of exfoliating your face by efficiently removing the dust, dirt and oil from the skin. It makes your face feel fresh and rejuvenated. I will definitely buy it again once I experiment with some other face scrubs.

  1. It looks like a cream more than a scrub...I can imagine how small the granules might be!

    1. Exactly. But the small sized granules does a pretty decent exfoliating job.

  2. Not meant for me as i have blackheads..

    1. For blackheads I think scrubs with bigger granules are more effective..
