In today’s post I am going to introduce you to the brand Fuschia by Vkare
“Fuschia was born out of its parent company Vkare Bio Sciences in 2013. Since its inception, Fuschia has come up as a natural, handmade Skincare products brand.” The products they make are free from SLS and paraben.
If you are my Instagram follower, you would have already seen the box of Fuschia goodies that the brand had sent me a couple of weeks back. I was very excited to try them out and has been using them for a while now. I feel the products came at the right time, as winter is already here and I needed to change products to suit the dry climate.
I tried the green tea face and body scrub first and I should say it is very different from the scrubs I have been using so far. Did I like this one?? Read along to find out.
Enriched with catechins, this Green Tea scrub controls acne breakouts. This scrub not only tones and soothes your skin but also delays fine signs of ageing.
Free of SLS, parabens, phthalates, artificial tints & synthetic perfumes.
Ingredients : Aloe Vera, Olive Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Green Tea (only these are mentioned in the pack).
Price : 200Rs for 50g, 450Rs for 100g.

Packing: It comes in a very handy, travel friendly, cute plastic square tub. The product is very thick and dense. The screw in metal cap closes the tub tightly and is hence spill and leak proof.
Fragrance : Very pleasant and mild. I feel it must be mix of fragrance oils as it doesn’t smell herbal.
My experience using the product:
Green Tea is rich in antioxidants,which helps in fighting against free radicals responsible for causing ageing. I recently found out (after using green tea soap from Cape of Good Hope) that products with green tea really suits my combination skin.
This scrub has a very dense creamy texture with very mild green tea leaf particles for exfoliation. You can see the scattered green tea leaves throughout. With the goodness of potent natural ingredients, this scrub will suit all skin types. It is soap free and hence doesn’t lather. This makes it apt for winter, as soap often strips the skin of its natural oils.
A very small quantity is enough for the face, as it can be spread well on wet face. Mixing a little water will help if this is too dense. Massage in circular motion as suggested by the brand and wash it off. The skin feels refreshed and moisturized, after.
On my combination skin, this did not leave any oily film after washing. So I believe this must suit oily and dry skin equally.
This light greyish green scrub can be used as a face pack as well. Leave it on for about 5min before scrubbing it off, to get that extra suppleness and softness of skin. It is very gentle and doesn’t irritate or stretch the skin at all.
Also this tub will last me really long, as the quantity required for each use is very less.
Cons ( if you really have to find some):
Complete ingredient list is not mentioned in the pack.
Even though the product claims to be a body scrub as well, I find the particles too gentle for dry body skin. This is best as a face scrub.
Ideal for winters but in summers, this can make skin a bit oily for oily skinned people, as it is soap free.
This definitely soothes the skin and makes it supple, but I am yet to experience acne controlling ability of the product.
Even though this was sent as a review sample, I am fairly impressed by the efficacy and gentleness of this scrub. It took me a while to actually get used to the non-harsh particles of this one and thick texture. But I really loved it after. It is suitable for the dry and chilly winters and I sometimes even skip the moisturizer after using this.
