Exfoliation is definitely the favourite part of my skincare routine. And I am always on the lookout for a product that helps achieve that smooth, baby soft skin without any clogged pores.
So I picked up the Juicy Chemistry Avarampoo, Papaya and Bergamot Scrub during one of their sales and here is my experience using it.

About the product:
The Juicy Chemistry Avarampoo, Papaya and Bergamot Scrub comes in a transparent jar with a protective lid and a wooden spoon. The product inside has a yellowish-brown colour and a grainy consistency with a herby smell to it.
Sucrose, sodium chloride, sucrose, Olea europaea (olive) oil, Simmondsia Chinensis(jojoba oil), Cassia A
Directions to use:
Using our wee spoon, scoop out a little product into a clean bowl. Mix it with a few drops of your favourite hydrosol. Spread the resulting mixture on your face, let it dry for 5-10 mins & wash off. Use once or twice a week.
This is my first Juicy chemistry product so I was excited to try this out. The scrub came packaged well with a seal and a wooden spoon which I liked. (Honestly, I wish more brands start proving scoops along products sold in jars.)
The scrub is clumped together in the jar and I take about half spoon in a plate and mix it with 2-3 drops of rose water. The salt and most of the sugar instantly melt away leaving brown liquid with a few larger sugar granules.
I apply this on my face and leave it on for 5-7 minutes as directed on the label. And then slowly massage it off with wet hands and rinse thoroughly afterwards.
The scrub is moisture sensitive and you have to be careful to not add more than 2-3 drops or the scrub completely melts away. It does not provide a satisfactory scrubbing action due to his fact. And the few larger sugar granules left behind feels scratchy sometimes even when used light-handedly.
It does leave my cheeks and forehead smooth afterwards, a sign of some exfoliation. But it doesn’t do much in the areas around my nose and chin which are prone to clogged pores.
There is also a slightly sticky feeling on the skin afterwards due to melted sugar which takes some effort to be removed completely.
I would have been happy with the Juicy Chemistry Avarampoo, Papaya and Bergamot scrub it if I didn’t have an issue with clogged pores and blackheads. But it works decently on normal skin.
- Ecocert Certified organic
- Handmade and vegan
- Exfoliates decently
- No added fragrance and colours
- Does not work on clog pores
- A bit expensive for the quantity
- Some sugar granules feel scratchy on skin
- Difficult to work with consistency
The Juicy Chemistry Avarampoo, Papaya and Bergamot scrub is an average scrub for its price. I don’t see myself buying this again. If you have acne/blackhead prone skin, you may want to stay away from this too.
Although I am disappointed with this particular Juicy Chemistry product, I am looking forward to trying out other products from their range.
