GLAMISHA: Facewash & Skin Lightening Cream Review 

Hello Readers,

Recently i came across a new brand Glamisha. Based in Mumbai the brand brings you luxury beauty and personal care products. All their product have pure ingredients, essential oils and extract, which are used to make their product highly effective and yet gentle.

Today i am going to review two products from Glamisha – A face wash & Skin Lightening Cream.

I know i have been a little late in reviewing these products. But i wanted to put a down a genuine review. So i used these products for a good 2-3 weeks and i now i am super ready to review it for you all 🙂 

Lets start with the review of face wash first 🙂

Glamisha Face wash with Mulberry and Licorice Extract-

Packaging –  The face wash comes inside a white squeezable tube with a black flip cap. The tube comes inside a cardboard  box. All the information has been mentioned both on the box and the tube.

Appearance –  The face wash is transparent gel type and has light blue undertones. It has medium consistency. The smell is a bit strong but refreshing. Honestly i dont like strong smell products but i love the fragrance of this one.

Ingredients The face wash is paraben free. But contains SLS & SLES. 

Price 350rs for 100ml

Shelf Life  2years from mfg date

My Experience – With ingredients like Mulberry and licorice i was kinda excited to try the facewash. So as soon i got the products i started using them. The face wash is extremely gentle on the face and creates just the right amount of lather. A small peanut size amount is all you need. But If i am coming home after a long day then usually i require a little more amount of face wash. It does the cleansing well without irritating the skin. It removes dirt and oilyness enhancing the appearance of skin. It makes my skin soft and supple without excessive drying. Mulberry extract present in the facewash acts as a super anti anging agent. Licorice extracts are rich in anti oxidants.They impart a healthy glow to the skin. Overall a good facewash. 

GLAMISHA Skin Lightening Cream with kojic acid dipalmitate & Arbutin Review

Packaging – The Skin Lightening Cream comes inside a white squeezable tube with a black flip cap. The tube comes inside a cardboard  box. All the information has been mentioned both on the box and the tube.

Appearance – The cream is white in colour and has a medium consistency. It has a strong but soothing refreshing fragrance and the fragrance lasts upto quite some time. Say about an hour. 

Ingredients –  It is Paraben free. Contains SLS. 

 Price 975rs for 100gm.

 Shelf life 17months.

My experience –  I use this cream after washing my face with Glamisha’s Face wash. On applying the cream it takes a while to get fully absorbed into the skin. The cream needs to be massaged properly so that it doesn’t leaves any whitish cast on the skin. Its texture turns bit matte when you start applying it and hence it needs to be massaged thoroughly to help it get absorbed into the skin. My skin feels so soft after applying it. It makes my skin appear a little fair and healthy also. I did not notice any major oilyness on my skin after applying it. Also the fragrance of the cream stays on for quite some time which i love it. Both Kojic Acid Dipalmitate and Arbutin present in the cream acts a skin whitening and Lightening agent. Kojic acid also helps with dark spots and sun damage. I think this will work best for oily skin beauties.

So thats all 🙂 If you have any questions or suggestions  about the products do comment below.

Book Review – Adventures in Farland by Moshank Relia

Hello Readers,

I am back with a new post. This time its a book review. Last week Author Moshank Relia sent me a copy of his book ‘Adventures in Farland’ for a review. The book was released on October 19, 2017. The book is a children’s fiction. Apt for age group 6-10 years.

What the book is about- Its about a story of a 7 year old girl Mira Rawat who have heard stories about farland from her mother and one day gets invited to the farland to attend a New Moon party. But on her way she comes across Queen of witches whose intention is to destroy farland. Mira herself and with the help of people of farland defeats the Queen of witches and saves farland.

My Views – The book is written in a simple language, easy for children to understand. The story is quite engaging such that it holds your interest in the book till the very end. With imaginative, exciting & surprising elements at evey turn the book is extremely gripping. There are illustrations at some places in the book which i like the most. I wish there were more illustrations. You can even colour those illustrations. The coverpage of the book is also very well designed. This book makes for a perfect bed time story. I completed the book in one go and was left wanting for more. ☺️

Do i recommend this book? Yes, totally 🙂 

Price 150rs

Grab your copies to know how the Queen of witches intents to destroy farland and how Mira Rawat bravely saves the farland.☺️

I have a thing for products that smells good and looks attractive. So i was very excited to use the Zuci products when i got them. Not only they smell fruity but looks so juicy and at the same time zuci products are affordable too.

I decided to try the hand sanitizer first.

It has a runny consistency and contains small red coloured Vitamin E beads. All information regarding price, directions of use, expiry, ingredients are mentioned behind the bottle. 

The brand says Junior instant hand santizer with strawberry fragrant from Zuci Junior is a sweet way to kill 99.99% germs without water. The red coloured beads will magically dissolve once you rub your palms together.

    My Experience Indeed it was fun using the Instant juinor hand sanitizer. Me and my niece both enjoyed using it. Our hands did not feel dry at all after using it. It leaves hands cleans and smooth. I also loved the strawberry fragrance which was not too strong but at the same time was tempting too . The hand sanitizer also contains Moisturizers and Vitamin E which doesn’t let your hands to dry out. Also you just need a peanut size amount for both the hands. My niece loved it so much that she is insisting on trying other variants too 🙂 Yes Zuci has 5 more variants in this. You can check them out HERE

Just a peanut size amount is enough for both the hands. It creates just the right amount of lather. The smell is so fresh, fruity and tempting but not too strong. The smell lingers on the hands for quite some time(15-20mins). It doesn’t dries up my hands and they appear clean and smooth. My niece loves it too.

    Coming back to the review part….Last week organicmill sent me a lip gloss in raspberry shade.

    The lip gloss comes in a round plastic container with a screw cap and has a protection lid inside. All the information regarding the product is mentioned behind the container.

    To be honest i don’t like the tub packaging. Its unhygienic and Since you need a seperate lip brush to apply it, everytime there will be a need to wash it (brush) again and again and carry it(brush) along with you in case you are carrying the lip gloss while travelling. I would prefer a squeezable tube. 

    Price 300rs for 10gms

    Best Before 6 months from mfg date.

    For Ingredients, Direction of use, Instructions please refer the above picture.

    My Experience – The Raspberry lip gloss is a dark pink shade. It gives a nice pink tint to the lips. But since i have darker lips the shade isn’t visible much. It will look better on fair lips is what i feel. The lip gloss glides smoothly and doesn’t feels heavy on the lips. It makes my lips soft and keeps it hydrated for a good 2-3 hours without eating or drinking. Its a nice shade for daily wear as its not very dark and at the same time keeps the lips hydrated.

    Rating 3/5

    Pros

    • Organic
    • Made Fresh
    • Hydrating
    • No chemicals

    Cons

    • Packaging could have been better

    TBC by Nature: Sunblock Everyday Mattifying Cream SPF 30+

    One of the things i hate about hot summer sun is the damage it does to the skin. My skin gets super oily and tanned as soon as i head out in hot sun. Which means, if i apply a sunscreen/sunblock cream while heading out, my skin tends to get more oily and sticky. Therefore i prefer not to apply anything on my face. But one must also know that a sunscreen/sunblock cream  is a must to protect the skin from sun damage. I have tried a number of suncreens and sunblocks but nothing seems to suit my skin. Everyday there is this constant fight in my mind  whether to or not to apply. On one side i hate getting my skin oily and on the other side i also fear my skin getting damaged. I am sure many of you might be facing the same issue as me. But hey, look i have found the solution —> 

    Sunblock Everyday Mattifying Cream SPF 30+ from TBC by Nature

    Recently TBC by Nature has come up with suncare range and one of the product from their suncare range is this Sunblock Everyday Mattifying cream Spf 30+ with organic carrot oil & grape juice. 

    About the product / Direction of use / Ingredients – 

     The product is

    • Organic
    • Not tested on Animals
    • 100% veg
    • Fragrance free
    • LLP, Silicon, PABA free
    • Eco Certified

    Packaging : It comes in tube with a flip cap. The tube comes inside a cardboard box. All the information has been mentioned both on the tube as well as cardboard box. Love the colour and the floral design on the tube.
    The Sunblock cream is white in colour and has medium consistency.

    Priced at 349rs for 120g

    My Experience –

    I was very excited to use this cream as it has the words ‘ mattifying’ on it.  As for all the oily skin beauties the word mattifying is the key. The cream is light in weight and doesn’t feels heavy on the skin. It needs to be massaged properly in order to get it completely absorbed by the skin. It doesn’t makes the skin oily nor leaves a whitish cast And also keeps my skin hydrated. My face looks a little radiant after applying this. But the radiant effect vanishes after a few hours. Zinc oxide & titanium dioxide present in the cream are very effective in protecting the skin from UV rays. The cream also contains organic carrot oil & grape juice to fight against aging effects of the sun on skin. Overall a good product. Totally recommended.

    Veda Essence: Aloe Shea Rejuvenating Cream Review

    Hello Readers,

    Today i am going to review a product from VEDA ESSENCE. Its the aloe shea rejuvenating cream. Its a sample product sent to me by Jas Naturals.

    As you can see the sample product…no information about the product was mentioned. So i decided to check the website of veda essence in order to get some information about the product. You can also check out the actual product HERE
    What the brand says?

    Natural Aloe Shea Rejuvenating Cream Is a unique blend of many essential oils with Unrefined african Shea Butter and Aloe Vera, to completely hydrate your skin, Naturally. This handcrafted cream is 100% natural & vegan. It is suitable for both men & women. 

    Ingredients: Unrefined African Shea Butter, Aloe Vera, Lavender Essential Oil, Myrrh Oil.

    Since i dont have the actual product i can’t mention about the packaging ,expiry and other few details. So lets just hop on to my experience with this product.

    My experience: The product looks & has a nice strong aroma just like those of scented candle. On applying it needs to be massaged properly. Because it takes a while to get completely absorbed into the skin.  It hydrates the skin so well that i dont feel the need to moisturize my skin again. I love how its aroma linger on the skin for quite some time. It feels so good on my body and that aroma helps me relax my mind. But i think this product is not apt for summers specially if you have oily skin. This product is best for winters is what i feel.

    • Natural & Vegan
    • Handcrafted

    Ecotique: Aromatherapy Stress Relief Blend Oil Review

    Hello Readers,

    Today i am going to review an essential oil from Ecotique. Its the Aromatherapy stress relief blend oil

    Essential oils are good, powerful and are considered a natural remedy to relieve stress, tension, anxiety, relax the mind & body. 

    This particular essential oil for stress relief is 100% natural and is a combination of Spearmint, Lavender Bulgarian, Lemon, Rosemary pure essential oils.

    Lavender Bulgarian  helps in soothing and calming, Lemon helps in refreshing, Rosemary helps with stress, Spearmint helps in relaxing.

    It comes in a blue transparent glass bottle with a screw cap. It also has a stopper inside. But when i got the bottle it was leaking. This is not travel friendly as per me. This 10ml bortle is priced at 499rs. Its shelf is 2 years from mfg date. The scent is medium types…not too strong and not mild either. 

    My Experience:

    I have used this quite a number of times by adding 3-4 drops in my bathing water. My entire bathroom gets filled with the scent of this essential. The scent gives so much positivity to my mind and provides the much needed relief. It brings a sense of calm and my mind is at peace. This is the best way to relax your mind and body after you have had an stressful day. With combination of so many pure essential oils it surely helps to cope with stress. This makes my bathing sessions so much more peaceful and gives me that luxurious feeling too. You can also simply add a drop of this essential oil to your cream and massage on your hands to help you relax. 

    Pros

    • Contains the best essential oils
    • Calming, relaxing, uplifting

After using it for almost 3 weeks i find my hair healthier and bouncy. Also it does helps with the dandruff too. You may not notice the results in a single use.
