Plum recently added their “Tan Busters,” which include a face scrub and a face mask, to their exciting Chamomile & White Tea range. I have already reviewed the skin revival face wash and sheer matte day cream from the same range. At the right time of summer, they have presented a time-tested, natural way to get over the tan and regain our original skin tone. This combo consists of a gentle, yet effective deep cleansing scrub with walnut shell powder and biodegradable cellulose beads and a weekly face pack made with carefully selected natural clays, licorice, and willow bark. Let us now see how this face scrub fared on me.
Price: INR 375 for 75 g

Product Description: Reveal the brighter side of you & say bye-bye to sun tan – each time you scrub away dead cells, dirt & dullness. Gentle cellulose beads & effective walnut shell powder in this facial scrub make the perfect scrubbing combo, while the antioxidant-rich botanical extracts in the base keep the goodness going beneath the surface.
My Experience with Plum Chamomile & White Tea Brighten-Up Face Scrub
Packaging: This face scrub comes in an opaque white tube with a clear flip-top cap. The cap shuts tightly, making the product leak-proof. The orange lettering on plain white base gives this packaging a fresh look. It is housed inside a similarly designed white cardboard box. All information, including the ingredients list, is printed on both the outer cardboard box and the actual product. As Plum products are available only online, packaging all their products inside a sturdy box makes sure that there is no damage to the product. This face scrub is sturdy, is easy to carry, and contains 75 grams of product.
Texture: This face scrub has a thick, creamy texture. It comes in a peach color with loads of smaller brown and larger red cellulose beads. It is very exfoliating, thus Plum advises to use this face scrub not more than thrice a week. It contains a mild floral scent. It is meant for dry, normal, and combination skin and not advised for sensitive and acne-prone skin.
Performance: As I live in ever hot Chennai, my skin tends to get tanned very easily. So when Plum launched their “Tan Busters,” I had to immediately try them. Moreover, I love other products from this range. This face scrub is a gentle, yet effective deep cleansing scrub with walnut shell powder and biodegradable cellulose beads. This creamy face scrub spreads smoothly on moist skin. The cellulose beads are gentle yet effective. They are insoluble and thus provide good exfoliation. Just massage this face scrub on forehead, cheeks, nose, and chin in a circular motion for as long as is comfortable. Then wash off with normal water and pat dry. It completely rinses off without leaving behind any residue. It removes all dead skin, leaving behind a soft and clean skin. This face scrub is so gentle and does not strip away any moisture from the skin. Moreover, chamomile extract calms and soothes the sun-exposed skin. It has a rich, skin-loving base that does not dry out the skin. Also the antioxidant-rich botanical extracts in the base keep the goodness going beneath the surface. It took almost three usages to reduce sun tan from my skin. With regular use of this face scrub, I could notice much difference on my stubborn sun tan. It truly brightens up my dull, sun-tanned skin. However, it would take a while to achieve even-toned, glowing skin, which I definitely do not mind. It might look little expensive, but only a small quantity is needed to cover up the whole face and neck. Thus, it is going to last you for long. Moreover, it comes for a better price as a combo offer with their Glow-Getter Face Mask. Follow this face scrub with Plum Chamomile & White Tea Sheer Matte Day Cream SPF 50 to prevent the skin from sun damage. Most importantly, this face scrub is free from parabens, phthalates, propylene glycol, SLS, DEA, PABA, and animal-derived ingredients. Overall, I am so happy to get my skin de-tanned using a gentle, chemical-free face scrub.
