Hello Everyone! 😇 I hope you all are doing well. I was planning for the “Top 5 Face Scrub” post for a long time but wasn’t able to curate the best tried and tested options. Now, that I have gone through a lot of face scrubs available in the market, I am able to select My Top 5 Favourite Face Scrubs which performed well on my skin and my skin loved it. Some Face Scrubs are under Rs.100 and some are Under Rs.500/- except for one which you will see in the list below.😄 All of them are Paraben-Free, some are completely natural and chemical-free while one is a DIY. 😄 There is one face scrub in the market that I tried and it did well but wasn’t free from harsh chemicals so I didn’t want to include it in the list but I will mention its name in case you want to check it out. 😊
Importance of Using Face Scrubs/Exfoliators
Exfoliation is a really important step in our Healthy Skincare Routine. Face Scrubs exfoliates your skin, taking out the dead cells and dead skin, revealing fresh, bright, glowing and healthy skin. It improves the blood circulation which results in soft and supple skin. Face Scrubs also helps in taking away the Oil Heads and Blackheads depending upon the Intensity of scrub and on the level of Oil-Heads or Blackheads you are having. But usually, blackheads are so tough that only blackhead removing strip can take it away. Using a face scrub on a weekly basis ensures that your skin and pores are getting deep cleaned for healthy and bright skin. If you are scrub on a regular weekly basis, you will notice that you are not getting any unevenness or spots or pigmentation. I Love exfoliating helps in Improving the new cell growth which helps in maintaining the skin.
Yes, Dry Skin People can too use it
A lot of people assume that having dry skin means you can not use a face scrub which is not true. Face Scrub is for everybody and it is really important. There are a lot of variants available in the market. Some are rich cream-based for super dry skin well some are Intense for Oily Skin. A lot of people with dry skin come to me asking how they can Improve their Uneven Skin tone or get away with Pigmentation and dullness and I always say exfoliate your skin once a week. It will help your skin to get rid of all the dead cells and it will help your skin to breathe.
Always Moisturize your Skin after Exfoliation
Never, ever forget to moisturize your skin after using a face scrub no matter what skin type you have. A lot of people with Oily Skin skip the Moisturizing part which is not good for your skin. Moisturizer is a key to Younger Looking Skin. If your skin is nourished, you are delaying the aging of your skin. Always use a moisturizer meant for your skin type after you are done with your face wash or scrub or masking.

Before I get into the list, let me mention that all these face scrubs mentioned in the list are for all skin type be it Normal, Combination, Dry or Oily and Even if you have sensitive and acne-prone skin like me. Also, both Men and Women can use this for Healthy Skin.
1. Himalaya Tan Removal Orange Face Scrub
Price: Rs.70/- for 50gm
This is one of the best and my personal favorite face scrub. Not only me, but my brother also loves it. In fact, this complete Tan Removal Orange Range from Himalaya is fabulous. I have done an in-depth review of the complete range which you can read here. The exfoliating particles do a great job without being pokey. This is just satisfying. It has a creamy base so it won’t be too strong on your skin. It isn’t too mild or too harsh and works great in taking off the dull skin. And the best part, this scrub or this complete range actually works on tan. I love how it brightens up my skin. Really, one of the best face scrub.
Available at Nykaa.
2. Alanna Desiccated Coconut and Saffron Face and Body Scrub
Price: Rs.850/- for 50gm (Always available on Discount Online)
The image above is of a sample bottle which I got in my December 2017 Fab Bag. The moment I used it, I fell in love with the fragrance. It has such a beautiful and light on senses kind of coconut and saffron fragrance. This one is a completely natural scrub so If you are looking for a complete chemical-free scrub, this Coconut and Saffron Scrub from Alanna is a great choice. This says “Face and Body Scrub” and really it does a great job as a Body Exfoliator. But it is expensive so I’ve kept it to use it on my face only. 😄
The real coconut particles can be felt and I love how it smoothens out my skin. This isn’t a cream-based face scrub and you will need to add a few drops of water while using it. It might feel a bit of strength so make sure you are not rubbing your skin with this too fast. I always massage my skin with this in a very slow and circular motion. I love how after each use my skin feels fresh, bright, soft, rejuvenated, and healthy. I love it.
Available at Nykaa.
3. Himalaya Purifying Neem Scrub
Price: Rs.75/- for 50gm
Again, one from Himalaya. If you are on my Instagram, you might have seen this in my stories. This isn’t mild but slightly less strong than the Himalaya Orange Face Scrub. You can say it has more of the cream base but still, does the job. It effectively cleanses the skin taking off the dirt, dead cells, and dullness and gives a fresh feeling. I got this in my Himalaya Neem Kit so I always use the Neem Pack after it. 😄
Available on Amazon and Nykaa.
4. Biotique “Bio Papaya” Revitalizing Tan-Removal Scrub
|Biotique “Bio Papaya” Revitalizing Tan-Removal Scrub|
This is an awesome scrub and does a great job of removing dead skin build-up, delivering instantly smooth, texture-free skin. But, it has no effect on tan and has no brightening properties. Also, even after continuous usage, there are no long-lasting or overtime results. But, because it does a good job of exfoliation, you consider going for it.

5. DIY – Rice Powder and Curd Scrub and Mask
This one is a DIY and one of my favorite DIYs along with the classic Besan and Haldi Facepack DIY. Whenever someone asks me a good homemade scrub or mask for brightening or to remove tan or Improve uneven skin tone or dark spots, be it anything. I recommend this to them. This Rice Powder + Curd DIY is a Scrub as well as Mask.
All you need to do is, simply grind rice into powder, take half a spoon of it and mix it with curd to make it a face pack like consistency. Keep it aside or in the fridge for a few minutes and apply on a clean face. Wash the pack-off after 25 minutes in a circular motion so that rice granules can do the job of exfoliating. You will definitely see results if you will use this religiously and you will fall in love with it. Your skin will say thank you for it.

And with this, our list of Top 5 Paraben-Free Face Scrub is complete. I wanted to Include Lotus Herbals White Glow Oatmeal and Yogurt Skin Whitening Scrub in this list of Best Face Scrubs because I loved that but it isn’t chemical-free scrub. It does contain parabens and chemicals so It couldn’t make it to the list. But, it really was a great scrub. If you are interested, you can check that out on Amazon or on Nykaa.
All the names of Face Scrubs mentioned above do a great job of taking off the dead skin and dullness, revealing the fresh and bright skin. As mentioned above, weekly usage of face scrub or exfoliator, Improves the blood circulation making the skin healthy, glowy, bright with a natural healthy flush on cheeks. So, don’t forget to include your favorite scrub in your skincare routine.
