About the product, Ingredients – Please see below picture.

Its free from parabens, sulfates and cruelty.

Price – 350rs for 100gm.

Packaging – It comes in a white tube with a flip cap. I sure love the simple white packaging. The packaging is travel friendly, non messy and It looks classy on my bathroom shelf.

Its a cream based scrub and has tiny black scrub beads in it. The scent is of charcoal but not over powering. In fact its more like subtle. You wont even know while using it.

My Experience – I have combination skin which is also acne prone. It’s very hard to keep a balance that way. I am glad this worked on my skin. It doesn’t over dries my skin and does the job of cleaning the skin very well. It really does away with dull skin. I use this as a mask sometimes. I keep it on for 5 mins and then gently massage and wash it off. That way i find it more effective. It sucks dirt out of the pores making them less visible. And all of this without irritating my skin. I don’t find the scrub beads harsh but in case you have sensitive skin just be careful to massage very gently. Overall i am really happy with the product.

Ideal for – All skin types.

The Nake Organica Body Lotion

The body lotion comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap. When i checked their website they had a pump dispenser packaging shown there. However I like the minimal packaging.

The body lotion has a medium consistency and is white in colour. I cannot actually make out what it smells like exactly. The smell is not luxurious but not bad either. Its not strong. I love it.

The body lotion is lightweight and non greasy. When massaged it gets quickly absorbed into the skin. When i apply it on my hands it feels cold as if its quenching thirst of my dry skin and i love that feeling. My hands feel so smooth and soft. It perfectly Moisturises and keeps my skin supple. I feel like this is the best body lotion that has landed on my desk so far. The way it feels on my skin and knowing that it contains no nasties makes the entire experience of using it so satisfying. This has become a major staple in my skincare routine.

Ideal for – All skin types. If you have extremely dry skin then you might want to apply it 2-3 times a day.

Do i recommend it? YES… Its a great performing product at a great price.

24k Gold Vitamin C Serum Review – Aegte

I have seen so many bloggers rave about Vitamin C serum and it has become so popular cosmetic product recently that i decided to try one myself.

The one i got here is 24k gold Vitamin C serum from Aegte. This is India’s first gold based serum made out of 100% pure and organic ingredients.

About the product – This gold serum blended with Vitamin C is a pure blessing for the skin says the brand. It reduces the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, marks and other signs of ageing.It is 100% organic and free from chemicals.

Priced at 2499rs for 30ml. Available on discount HERE or Amazon.

Packaging – It comes in a opaque cylindrical golden bottle with a pump dispenser and transparent cap. The bottle comes inside a cardboard box. All details about the product are mentioned on the packaging. The packaging is classy and the pump dispenses the right amount of product avoiding wastage. It is travel friendly packaging.

The serum is water like and is transparent and has gold tiny particles in it. To me it smells like a rose water and the scent is not strong. The scent wears off within minutes of applying.

Ingredients – Aqua, Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Collagen, Vitamin B5, 24k gold, Niacinamide.

Benefits –

🔵Do you know how beneficial is gold for the skin? Gold is said to have anti inflammation and anti bacterial properties and It has a number of benefits for the skin such as reduces the dryness of skin, lighten the complexion, treats sun damage, rejuvenates the skin, increases skin elasticity, calms acne inflammation, reduces wrinkles, fine lines and spots.

Vitamin C renews and rebuild your skin.

Besides gold this product also contain two excellent ingredients that are hyaluronic acid and niacinamide.

Many of you might not be aware of these two ingredients. So just for the information, hyaluronic acid and niacinamide have super hydrating powers and are very beneficial to the skin in many other ways. Serums and creams containing this ingredient can make a big difference to your skin. (I guess i will do a separate post on this).

🔵A skincare regime that includes Vitamin C serum can help fight the effects of aging and give your skin a vibrant glow. A serum with Vitamin C + Hyaluronic acid will help you retain skin’s Moisture and will leave your skin looking youthful.

How to use the serum?

Once you clean and tone your skin or simply wash your face then apply Vitamin C serum and then use a Moisturizer which suits your skin.

My experience – As i said above that the serum has gold tiny particles in it, i thought they will stick to my face but thankfully they don’t. On applying it quickly gets absorbed into the skin. A little amount goes a long way. One pump covers my entire face. So i have incorporated this serum in my night skincare routine. Trust me you guys, this has helped me so much with dehydrated and dull skin. It has improved the look of my skin. Not that it has made my skin fair but When i wakeup my skin looks fresh and healthy and not dry and dull as it use to look before. My skin feels so smooth. It imparts a soft glow to the skin. And all of the above without irritating my skin. It didn’t show any results at first but once you get the hang of it you will start to notice a difference. But don’t expect a miracle overnight.

Serums work differently on different types of skin. So choose one that suits your skin. Make sure you use the right Moisturizer on top of serum.

Hibiscus Flower Powder benefits for skin and hair ft. O4U organic.

Hibiscus is beneficial for hair, skin and body in a number of ways.

To name a few benefits –

When used in hair oil or hair pack it induces hair growth, helps in maintaining a dirt free scalp, prevents premature graying.

For skin it helps to purify the skin, control acne breakouts, improves skin elasticity, helps exfoliate the skin.

You can easily buy hibiscus flower powder online to make your own hair pack or face pack. But make sure you buy one which is organic and pure. So i got mine from O4U organics.

O4U Organic hibiscus flower powder for face & hair.

➡️100% pure & natural.
➡️Organically cultivated.
➡️100% vegetarian.
➡️No chemicals.
➡️Free from pesticides.

Priced at 199rs.
Net wt. 100gm.
Availability – Amazon.

It comes in a sachet in a transparent plastic pack. This is not a sign of good packaging. Because the powder can ruin after coming in contact with air or water. Make sure to transfer it in a container or zip lock pouch.

It is light brown in colour. Its texture is not a fine powder but something like sand powder.

This is how it looks when i made my face scrub.

How did i use it?
I made face scrub using hibiscus flower powder + water + coconut oil. (this mixture can be applied to hair also).

2tbsp of hibiscus flower powder + 6tbsp of water + 2tbsp of coconut oil.

So since its texture is like a sand powder and i made a face scrub, it wasn’t in form of paste but like a scrub. It wasn’t harsh on the skin. The particles were extremely gentle. I enjoyed scrubbing my face with it. It gently exfoliates and cleanses the skin. It doesn’t dries out the skin. I didn’t notice any irritation or break outs thereafter. I haven’t noticed any major difference in my skin but i enjoy scrubbing my face with it. Natural products take time to give results.

I haven’t used it on my hair yet. But i am sharing a hair pack recipe with you.

Hair pack recipe – 2tbsp hibiscus flower powder + 5tbsp fresh yogurt/ homemade curd + 2tbsp of almond oil.

Apply the mixture and leave for 30min and then wash off with water. This helps in maintaining a dirt free scalp. Use once a week.

This is a multi purpose product. Hair packs, face packs/scrub all in one. 👍

Thats all 🙂

I totally recommend this product.

Just one con is the packaging. It should have come in a container or zip lock pouch.

    Aegte Complete Hair Defense Shampoo Review

    It is said that one should keep changing their shampoo. I don’t know how much of this is true but i change my shampoo.

So this time i switched to AEGTE Hair Defense Conditioning Shampoo.

It also calms the frizz. The shampoo doesn’t feels luxurious but is totally worth it. The immaculate feeling you get after shampoo is so nice. The feeling afterwards is totally different from that i get after using chemical laden shampoos. Also, i didn’t feel the need to use a conditioner. The product stays true to its claims.
