Hey everyone, today I’m reviewing the Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance which was a part of my Votre Skincare Haul. Votre is an Indian skincare brand that offers a wide range of 100% vegan and botanical based products. I tried a few Votre products (Votre Pore Shrink Toner, Votre Gel SPF 35, Votre Face Wash, Votre Microdermabrasion Gel) in the past and they worked really well for my oily acne-prone skin.
Packaging: Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance comes in a clear plastic jar with a silver metal cap. The cap is tightly secured to avoid any leakage and you can easily carry it while traveling. All the product related important information is also labelled on the jar. All in all the packaging is sturdy, compact and convenient to use.
Texture & Fragrance: The exfoliant looks golden brown in the jar, but it comes out almost clear when you take it on your palm. It contains grounded seeds of pineapple and papaya. It has a pleasant fragrance which is not very strong and vanishes away within a few minutes.
Price & Availability: The price of the Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance is Rs.850 for 100g and you can buy it online from Jabong.com or Nykaa.com.
Efficacy: After cleansing my face I take a small amount of the Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance and massage it nicely on my wet face and neck. It spreads easily and feels like you are massaging a thick gel on the face. I scrub it for good 3-4 minutes and then wash it off with normal water. It exfoliates the skin nicely and removes dead cells, impurities and oil from the skin. The scrubbing granules are very mild and don’t irritate my acne prone sensitive skin. I’ve oily skin with blackheads & whiteheads in my t-zone (forehead, nose, chin) and I like to use some strong scrub to keep my skin clean. But Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance is not very effective in extracting blackheads and acts more like a skin polisher that removes impurities and reveals clear and glowing skin. I’ve been using it for more than 2 months now and I’ve seen a noticeable improvement in my skin’s texture. It helped lighten the pigmentation and also removed the sun tan from my skin. A small quantity of the scrub is required during each use and this 100g jar will easily last for up to 4 months when used twice a week.
What I liked about Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance:
- Enriched with some amazing natural ingredients.
- Free from harsh chemicals.
- Effectively removes dead skin cells and reveals smooth & glowing skin.
- Gel based formula that keeps the skin hydrated.
- Suitable for almost all skin types.
- Doesn’t cause any breakouts to my sensitive skin.
What I disliked about Votre Advance Gel Exfoliance:
- Jar packaging is unhygienic to use.
- Not effective in removing stubborn blackheads and whiteheads.
- Not easily available at offline stores.
