Variants Available:
-Amla Tamarind Skin Brightening Face Polish
-Sandalwood and Turmeric Skin Lightening Face Polish. 

My Take On This Product:
Its been nearly a month I am using this face polish regularly.I have used Lotus herbals Orange and Alpine salts Face Polish before, but I found the Auravedic Face polish very different from that of Lotus one. Auravedic Face polish comes in a plastic tub with a screw cap and a plastic separator to prevent spillage.On the tub you get several information regarding the usage of the product including ingredient list and benefits of using the product.As soon as you open the separator, you get nice yummy fragrance almost similar to Strawberry flavored curd which I used to have at Kolkata.Seriously the fragrance is good that I felt like eating it up.  :p 

The face polish is creamy, smooth and rich in butters.It has very less quantity of granules which gently exfoliate my skin without being getting abrasive. This face polish is more of a mask than a face polish I would say.It can be used daily as it keeps my skin very soft, supple and moisturized. Many a times I massage it on my face, keep it on for 5-7 minutes and then wash it off with warm water.This way this face polish shrinks my pores, brightens my face and makes it glow.Regular use of this product has somehow improved my skin texture and my skin feels glowy and bright without any makeup.Though I don't have fine lines, still I think it will keep the fine lines and aging signs at bay because it maintains the optimum hydration level of my skin which is the most important factor for younger looking skin. This product is really unique and I would definitely recommend it to people with normal to dry skin.


Pros Of The Product:
-It contains all natural extracts like grape seed, pomegranate and green tea extracts, jojoba oil and ylang ylang oil.
-Grape seed is used which is considered as a potent anti-aging ingredient since a long time.
-Its consistency is almost like whipped cream with very fine granules.
-Its Paraben Free and also does not contain artificial colors.
-It makes my skin very soft, supple and hydrated.
-It can be used daily without affecting our skin as it does not feel abrasive and is more like a facial butter.
-I have also used it like a facial mask and it really brightens my skin leaving nice healthy glow on skin.
-With regular use, skin becomes firm and younger looking. 
-It has got an yummy fragrance, almost similar to strawberry flavored curd.
-The tub is sturdy and spill proof, hence its travel friendly too.
-Its going to last me for a long time. 
-These days available at several online shopping sites.
-Never broke me out.
-Though it contains concentrated fruit acids, still it never stung me and I feel this is very much suitable for sensitive skin too. 
-Two other variants are available too. 

Cons Of The Product:
-It may sound pricy for many people.
-Its very buttery, smooth with very less quantity of granules, hence not like a typical face polish.
-It does not remove blackheads and whiteheads effectively.
-To experience anti aging benefits one should regularly use this product, effects cant be seen with few usage.
-Not available at stores and can be purchased online only. 
-Tub packaging is unhygienic.
-May not suit oily skin people.
