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. 

Pros

  • Complete hydration
  • Nourishes the skin well
  • Natural & Vegan
  • Handcrafted
  • Suitable for both men & women

Cons

  • May not be suitable for summers

Thats all 🙂 If you have any queries or suggestions please comment below.

Direction of use: 

Price: 350Rs for 100gms

The scrub comes in a tube with a flip cap. The tube comes inside a thick cardboard box. All the information has been mentioned on the tube as well as box. The bright red colour of the tube makes the packaging eye catchy. 

The scrub is a transparent white gel with tiny scrub beads inside it. Though the brand says that it is fragrance free, it has got a strong powdery smell.

My Experience

I have been using this scrub for a week now. The scrub doesn’t creates lather and is gentle on the skin. Even the scrub beads are so tiny that they are extremely gentle on the skin and won’t irritate your skin. My skin feels smooth and clean instantly. It does away with the dullness of skin in single use. It instantly brightens the face. I have tested this by applying the scrub to only one part of my face. When i did this the part of the face washed with scrub looked clean & smooth as compared to the other part of my face which appeared dull. I also made my sister use this but she did not like it as her skin was prone to acne. I have a combination skin and i am perfectly fine with it. Gentle  and effective  on skin in single use is what i love the most about the product. The brand says it is suitable for all skin types. But as my sister did not like it, i guess ones with acne prone skin may not like it.


Thats all 🙂 Hope you find this review helpful. If you have any queries or suggestions do commemt below and i will reply asap.

Foot Care Cream with Aloe Vera Review – Green Leaf

Hello Readers,

Today i am going to review another product from Brihans Natural. This time its a foot care cream with the goodness of aloe vera.

Many of us do not take proper care of our feet. We ignore that part of our body just because we think who is going to notice. But one must always maintain a healthy feet in order to avoid infections and rough skin because Dry, rough and cracked heels can get painful at times so make sure to take care of  your feet properly. Above all that one must make sure to use the right foot care cream with the ingredients that will actually help you to get better feet skin.  So today i am sharing  my experience of a foot care cream from Brihans Natural. Read on to know whether this is the one for you.

About the product – Green Leaf Aloe Foot Care Cream contains natural ingredients renowned for their moisturizing and healing properties on dry and damaged skin. Green Leaf Aloe Foot Care Cream rehydrate the skin, removes the dead tissue and repairs the basal skin layer, even as it guards against excessive itching and inflammation.

Active ingredient: Aloe Vera extract, Tea tree oil, Kokum butter.
Price 80rs for 50gms.

The cream comes in a white plastic tub with a screw cap. The tub comes sealed with foil paper. All the information regrading the product has been mentioned on the tub. The tub comes inside a cardboard box.

The foot care cream is white in colour and has a medium consistency. The smell is flowery and not at all strong.

My  Experience

I was really excited to test this cream since it contains my favourite ingredients, aloe vera and tea tree oil.My mom has major dry and cracked heels  so i decided to test this on my mom’s feet and find out whether aloe vera and tea tree oil really does its magic. The first thing she did was to smell the cream and thanked that it did not smell strong. My mom says the cream is really good and the way it feels on her feet.The cream is not oily and greasy and makes the feet skin soft. The skin on her heels was quite thick and rough but after using this cream for around 1 month she has seen a lot of improvement. The skin now appears much soft and her heels doesn’t pain like it use to do before. She is also happy that the product does not contain any harmful chemicals and therefore enjoys using this cream a lot more. I also asked my mom whether she liked the packaging and she said she would prefer a tube over tub. 

Aloe Vera present in the cream helps soothes the skin and can also help get rid of dry skin. So Pamper your feet with Green Leaf Aloe foot cream and say bye to cracked heels and dry ,rough skin. Make sure you use it daily in order to see the results. I am reviewing this after my mom used it for almost a month.

Green Leaf – Pure Aloe Vera Skin Gel Review

Aloe Vera is called the fountain of youth and the first aid plant and rightly so. It has been used since ages for its soothing & healing properties. Today many ancient tales of aloe vera has been proven  to be factual as modern medicine unlocks the wonders bursting within Its leaf. 

Recently i got a chance to try the Aloe Vera gel from BRIHANS NATURAL

The Aloe Vera gel comes in a round plastic pot with a screw cap. The pot is sealed with silver thick paper. All information regarding Price, Expiry, Ingredients, Volume etc has been mentioned on the cap. Though i love the cute pot packaging, its unhygienic too. I have to dip my fingers inside which i kind of don’t like. 

Price – 100rs for 120g

Best Before – 2years from mfg date

Ingredients – Aloe Vera, Base and preservatives q.s.

Colour – Brilliant Blue FCF, Tartrazine.

The gel appears to be green because it has colours added to it. It has faint smell.

My Experience : I have been using this for a while now and find it bit dry for my combination skin. My skin feels a little tight after using it. So i apply it only when i head out in hot sun, that  way my face doesn’t gets oily. I also use it as a night cream and also apply on my pimples to keep the oilyness away. This product is good for summers.  You can also use this under your makeup. It acts as a nice base.I have tried it and my makeup doesn’t melts  when i head out in sun. Also i feel that the added colours were not necessary at all. I like Aloe Vera Gels that are white , just like the gum of Natural Aloe Vera Leaf. 

If you have oily skin then you must surely try out this.

Island Kiss Lip Moisturizer Review & Swatches

Hey Sassy Ladies, Today i am going to do a quick review of lip moisturizers from ISLAND KISS . Winter or not lip care products are a must.There’s not a day when i dont apply a lip moisturizer. Its a must for me and i am sure for you too. Lips being the ‘center of attraction’ of your face its very important that you keep them moisturised. Nobody likes dry &  chapped lips. Also… Having a lip balm is not enough but having a good lip balm that instantly moisturizes your lips is a must.

Well let me tell you that Island Kiss is an indian brand that had already launched back in 2015 with 3 variants of Lip Moisturizers. I have reviewed them on my blog. You can read it HERE

Recently Island kiss launched 2 new variants of lip moisturizers – 1) Black Rose & Grenade Rouge. 2) Flamingo Pink & Peonies. 


The lip moisturizer comes in a tube with a screw cap and has a slant applicator which enables easy application. The tube comes inside a cardboard box. The packaging looks so Inviting and Sexy such that it will tempt you to buy it. And just like the packaging the names of the lip moisturizers are pretty alluring.

The Lip Moisturizers are

  • 100% Natural
  • 100% Pure
  • Organic
  • Cruelty free
  • Not tested on animals
  • Petroleum Free
  • Non Toxic
  • Safe
  • Provides Sun Protection

Price – 499Rs (Price is same for both the variants)

Size – 14gms

Best Before – 36 months 

Ingredients – 

  • Tropical kokum
  • Avocado & Mango Butter
  • Organic Beeswax
  • Stevia
  • Organic carrot seed oil
  • Pure castor oil
  • Rich vitamin E oil
  • Macadama nut oil
  • Black rose essential rose (Variant – Black Rose & Grenade Rouge)
  • Pomegranate seed oil (Variant – Black Rose & Grenade Rouge)
  • Citrus essential oil ( Variant- Flamingo pink & peonies)
  • Peony Essential oil  (Variant- Flamingo pink & peonies)
  • Natural Organic colour

The Black Rose & Grenade Rouge  gives a nice pinkish red  tint and smells purely of rose. I love the smell since its soothing & not strong but also stays on for a longer time.

The Flamingo Pink & Peonies gives a baby pink tint making your lips look like they are naturally pink. I can’t really make out what it smells like but the smell is good for sure. Not strong but soothing. Since it contains Peony essential oil i guess the smell must be of that. 

My Experience – The Lip Moisturizers glides easily on the lips and gives them an instant shot of hydration making lips super soft.Its smooth on the lips and not sticky at all. I love touching my lips again and again because they appear that soft. It keeps my lips hydrated for a good 4-5 hours without drinking or eating anything. I love how it instantly revives badly chapped lips…..Also that it contains natural ingredients that are good enough to eat 😁The smell is also soothing and not strong. The way it feels on my lips i feel like applying it often.

Rating 5/5

I totally recommend these Lip Moisturizers from Island Kiss ♥

Inoface Modeling Cup Pack (Acerola) : Skin18.com

Hello Everyone,

I am back with another product review. This time something different and fun. What i am reviewing today is something that i have tried for the first time- A modeling cup pack from SKIN18. This cup pack is of INOFACE brand. Whenever i get something from Skin18 its always new to me thats because Skin18 has thousands of skincare brands that i haven’t even heard of and i am always as excited as hell to try the products 🙂 So when i got this Modeling cup pack i was confused and excited both at the same time.

The Modeling Cup Pack is a peel off face mask in Acerola variant which is effective for skin moisturisation and skin soothing. The packaging is that of like a thick plastic icecream cup with a screw cap. The packaging looks pretty for sure. The details mentioned on the cup are in korean language so i had to hop on to their website to check out the details. The face mask is in a powder form in baby pink colour. It doesn’t comes ready, you have to prepare it. Also inside the cup is a spatula/stirrer to be used while preparing the face mask.

About the product:-

INOFACE has around 10 types of Modeling cup packs and one of them is the ACEROLA variant that i am reviewing today. 

Directions of use:-

My Experience: So when i used it i did not take the entire powder of the cup. What i did is poured the powder using spatula 4-5 times in a plastic container and added water accordingly And stirred it. For me this was enough for my entire face for one time use. You need not use the entire powder in the cup. You can use it later on. The cup contains powder which can last upto a month. So after preparing the mask i immediately applied it on my face. As directed i kept it on for 15mins. During this period i did not notice any such irritation.The mask does not have any kind of fragrance. Once the mask dried i  washed it water as i wasn’t able to peel it off. This is no sort of peel of mask as the brand claims. What i noticed is that it makes the skin clean. It takes away the oilyness from the skin and leaves it looking fresh. It doesn’t dries out the skin. So its good for both oily and dry skin. Overall a good product but it wont peel off. This is where the product fails for me.

ODIVA – Gel Finish Nailpaint shade Cherry Pie Review 

Hello Everyone,

Introducing you all to a new brand ODIVA. Many of you might not be aware of this brand.ODIVA is an Indian brand & its range of cosmetics includes Nailpaints, Nailpolish remover wipes, After shave wipes. Odiva’s goal is to provide customers with outstanding personal service, while combining high quality and value. You can find ODIVA products on Amazon, Flipkart, Nykaa, Spencers retail. 

Last week i received a package from ODIVA which contained a Nailpaint, Nailpolish remover wipes & After shave wipes. 

Today i am reviewing a nailpaint from ODIVA in 001 cherry pie shade. 

Given my love for nailpaints i was very happy when ODIVA  sent me such a pretty red shade and i was kinda excited to try it. 

The nailpaint comes inside a cylindrical glass bottle with plastic black cap. Brand name, Price, mfg date, shade number, Volume has been mentioned on the bottle. The bottle further comes inside a white cardboard box. A good packaging indeed.

The Nail paint brush is long enough which enables easy and smooth application.

The texture of nailpaint is quite runny. Also as compared to other nailpaints the smell of the ODIVA nailpaint wasn’t too strong.

The nailpaint is free from any harmful ingredients.

Price: 300 rs for 11 ml

Best Before: 36 months from pkd.

My Experience: As i said given my love for nailpaints i couldn’t wait to try it. So as soon as i got the nailpaint i applied it. On applying the nailpaint gives a smooth shiny gel finish. The long brush makes the application easy and smooth. 2 coats are needed for that perfect finish.It gives the perfect cherry colour. Most of the Reds that i buy end up looking pinkish red types which i dont like. This is the perfect red nailpaint that i ever came across. I keep on touching and admiring my nails every now and then because they look that pretty. 

The nailpaint is such that even if you spread the nailpaint again and again with the brush it wont make the nailpaint sticky. Which happens in case of other normal nailpaints.Also I dont have to worry about my nailpaint getting messed up after applying because yes it dries off very quickly. The moment you start applying the nailpaint on your next nail the previous one dries off. Regarding the staying  power i say that it lasts upto a week after which it slowly starts chipping off. 

Rating-  4/5 

Overall the nailpaint is good. I dont find any such CONS except for the price. I find it a bit expensive. 


If you are looking for that perfect Red Nailpaint then this is the one. I bet you wont be disappointed. Go give a try to ODIVA 🙂

Fix Derma Teenilicious shampoo & conditioner Review

Hello Readers, Today i am going to talk about a hair care product which is specially formulated for the teenage hair. Its a shampoo and conditioner from an Indian brand Fix Derma Teenilicious. Before heading further with the review let me tell you a bit about the brand as this the first time i am reviewing something from this brand 🙂

About the Brand: Fix Derma Teenilicious is founded by shaily Mehrotra. Fixderma India Pvt Ltd was formed in 2006 to serve the newly emerging skin care market of India. The company focuses on manufacturing, marketing and promoting innovative
dermatology products in India and exports to over 20 countries across the globe, this number would reach around 30 by 2017.

So last week i received the Teenilicious Joyful Jasmine shampoo and conditioner from the brand. Here have a look.

image

I absolutely love the pretty and girly packaging of the products with all that floral design on the bottle/tube. They look imported and eye catching. The shampoo bottle comes with a pump dispenser cap and the conditioner comes with a flip cap. All information ( Ingredient, price, expiry) has been mentioned on the bottle/tube.

Fix Derma Teenilicious Joyful Jasmine Shampoo:

What the brand says: Fixderma Teenilicious Shampoo Gently cleanses and hydrates your dry & damaged hair. Nourishing Coconut Milk Shampoo with Jasmine flower extract is enriched with organic coconut milk while pro vitamin B5 repair and strengthen your hair. Exotic fragrance is like an escape to the tropics.

Price : 325rs for 200ml

Fix derma Teenilicious Joyful jasmine Conditioner:

What the brand says: FixdermaTeenilicious Conditioner provides natural vitamins & antioxidants while renewing your hair’s cell structure, sealing in shine, and creating lush softness. A precious blend of Jasmine flower extract, organic coconut milk & pro vitamin B5  instantly penetrates the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening the hair. It protects from styling heat and UV damage while creating soft, seductive, silky perfection.

image

Price: 310rs for 150ml

My Experience: As soon as i opened the bottle i was welcomed to a smell of jasmine.The smell is not overpowering. I diluted a little qty of shampoo in water and applied to my hair. This is how i usually use my shampoo.  What i noticed is that i need large qty of shampoo to create more lather for that perfect cleaning of my hair. A little amount wont be enough especially if you have long hair. After washing, my hair did feel a little dry and therefore i used the conditioner. After using the conditioner my hair felt soft and wavy. So if you are just using the shampoo your hair may feel a little dry. My hair type is dry so may be thats why. Overall the shampoo and conditioner both are good. It cleanse the hair well and leaves it smelling awesome.They look lovely on my bathroom shelf & So eye- catchy that anybody will be tempted to use it. I always feel very lazy to wash my hair but after keeping these products on my bathroom shelf i feel like washing my  hair every now and then. I completely enjoy using these products. They can also make for a lovely gift hamper for your friend or sister.
