Do have a look at Biotique Website first:

My Take On The Product:
I had picked this product some three years back and till now I simply love using it.In this few months I bought other scrubs like Hip Hop coffee scrub, Lotus White glow scrub, Aroma Magic Mineral Glow Scrub, but seriously no one could impress me as much as the Biotique Papaya scrub.

This scrub comes in a Green wide tub like Packaging ( usual packaging of Biotique) with flap cover.The scrub smells strongly of Raw papaya which I like because it makes me feel like using safe and natural scrub on my skin.Those with sensitive nose may not like it at all.

The scrub is a thick and cream colored with some evenly distributed brown colored granules.The scrub is very thick and the granules are quite big enough and coarse. But I feel it has the correct abrasiveness that my skin needs to remove dead skin cells from my dry skin.I never use it directly on face as it doesnt spread properly in that way.I dilute the scrub with water and sometimes with Aroma Magic Aromatic skin toner and then gently exfoliate my skin for 3-4 minutes.

This scrub works like a miracle product on my skin.It removes the dead cells and brightens my skin instantly also relieves my dull skin.Sometimes I dilute the scrub and keep it om my face and neck as a face pack for 15  minutes and then wash it off.To my utter surprise, whenever I use it as a face pack my skin becomes very soft, not only that it also removes tan from my facial skin and neck.Its simply my HG Scrub.From all the scrubs I have used till date, this is the best I find for my skin though I feel people with sensitive skin may not like it.Those who love very gentle scrubs can dilute this and use or simply skip it.

Pros Of The Product:
-Contains several natural ingredients like Papaya, Banana, Neem etc.
-Its fragrance is similar to raw papaya which I like as it makes me feel using naturally safe products on my skin.
-Its a thick creamy scrub which requires a bit to scrub entire face and neck.
-Raw papaya have the property of naturally bleaching the skin.Whenever I dilute this scrub and use as a face pack then it not only makes my skin velvety soft but also removes tan.
-Brightens my complexion and relieves dull appearance instantly.
-Its devoid of harmful preservatives.
-For my dry skin I feel its the best scrub for my skin.
-The granules though are big and coarse.But whenever I dilute it and use , it gives desired abrasiveness to my skin.
-Available these days at several shopping sites and also cosmetic stores.
-Never ever broke me out.
-Checks further occurrence of blackheads and whiteheads.
-The outer carton looks so good with loads of information on product. 
-Updated and informative website.

Cons Of The Product:
-Everyone wont like the fragrance, its quite strong.
-The scrub is very thick so do use it only after diluting it or else you will end up getting microscopic tears.
-I feel a slight burning sensation while rubbing it on my face but it goes away completely within few minutes.Sensitive skin people can skip this scrub however.
-Those who like using mild scrub for day today use may find it bit harsh on their skin.
-I do not prefer tub packaging for hygiene concern.
-In the packaging its being instructed to use it everyday. ( Please never ever do that as that will increase the sensitivity of your skin, do scrub maximum 3 times a week).
-Many people may find it a bit pricy for 85 Gms of scrub. 
-When its preservative free then how come biotique claims a shelf life of 3 years for this product?
Rating- 4 out of 5 (Based on My Experience)
Will I repurchase it? Yes I will definitely repurchase after I finish my other scrubs.

My Overall Recommendation: I totally recommend this product to everybody except people with sensitive skin and  those who love using mild scrubs.
