Packaging: Lotus Herbals Berryscrub comes in a soft press able plastic tube which is partially see-through. The tube has a flip cap with a hole for the product to run out. The details about the product and brand are printed on the top side of the tube body with an attractive shiny finish.

Colour, Consistency & Fragrance: The color of the scrub product is transparent base with brown-orange mixed type of scrubbing particles. The base is like a gel.
The consistency is very thin and runny. You tilt the tube, all the product inside the tube runs from one side to another. Though the base looks like a gel, it is very watery.

The fragrance of the product is somewhere in between mild to strong. The name of the scrub says Strawberry and Aloe vera, forget aloe vera, there is no smell of strawberry too on my smelling senses. There is some amount of sour fruity scent indicating the lemon and orange extracts being present.
How it works: Lotus Herbals Berryscrub Face Wash lathers minimum. The scrub granules are of mixed shape and sharpness. There are some which are a little big than needed for face scrubbing and they are sharp too. These scrub the face a little more that needed. The package says All Skin Types; definitely no, the scrub is a little harsh on the dry skin. Also it is not suitable during winter for removing the dead skin flakes. This is a good product for oily skin. My skin felt more dry and stretchy after washing with this product.

But, I have found another way of using this product, as a body scrub. This gives a very good massaging sensation when rubbed on the body. You can skip your usual body wash the day you introduce this Lotus scrub. It scrubs and washes too very well. The much needed scrubbing for heels, elbow, knee joint, and back of the neck is done by Lotus Herbals Berryscrub Face Wash.
