Vasanti BrightenUp!

BrightenUp! is a facial scrub enriched with papaya and microderm crystals (microdermabrasion). Vasanti states that this scrub helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines, scars and acne. I don't know about fine lines, but after several uses the product really helped to fade discoloration caused by acne! However, I must say that this is also true of most microdermabrasion products.

The texture is like a thick cream with tiny grains and it does not foam at all. This product smells good and the fragrance is not too strong. It is very effective in removing dead skin cells, brightening the complexion and making skin super soft! There is a lot of crystals and they are very fine, so I might not recommend it to those who have sensitive skin.

The instructions are very simple : It must be applied on clean and wet skin, then rub gently for 2 minutes and rinse. My skin is very soft, luminous and it does not leave an oily residue! This is a very good facial scrub! A tiny amount is sufficient to fully exfoliate your entire face. It should last at least 6 months if you use it 2-3 times a week.

The facial scrub BrightenUp! by Vasanti retail for $34 CDN for 120 ml and is available at select Shoppers Drug Mart and Rexall stores across Canada and at VasantiCosmetics.com !

  1. Thank you!
    I'm having trouble with Google Translate so this is perfect! :-)

    1. You are welcome! I'll try to write more reviews in english!

  2. Et moi qui pensait que Vasanti faisait seulement du maquillage?? La texture a l'air intéressante!

    Ton blog est bilingue maintenant? (:

    1. Non, c'est parce que Vasanti m'a demandé s'il était possible que j'écrive le review en anglais! Ça m'a donné l'idée d'en traduire quelques uns mais c'est trop long à faire pour que mon blog soit complètement bilingue.
