Red Rose 100% natural Tulsi Powder Review & DIY Tulsi facepack for oily skin

Hey guys i am back with a review and facepack recipe for oily skin and also for pimples & acne marks.

I am going to share 2 facepack recipes using tulsi powder. Before that let me tell you about the tulsi powder that i have used.

Tulsi Powder from the brand red rose.

The tulsi powder is mehndi green in colour.

This packet of 100gms is priced at 165rs. It has a shelf life of 2 years.

We all know that tulsi has bundle of benefits for skin. It is commonly and widely used in herbal and cosmetic products for its purifying, detoxifying and cleansing properties.

I have been using this tulsi powder for 2 weeks now. Like in 2 weeks i have used it 3-4 times on my face.

I tried using this with 2 different ingredients. One is multani mitti and the other is tomato juice.

Tulsi Powder and Multani Mitti facepack for oily skin-

1tbsp tulsi powder, 1tbsp multani mitti and little water or you can use rose water also. This facepack is beneficial for oily skin.

I have used multani mitti also from red rose brand. You can check it HERE

Tulsi Powder and tomato juice for fading acne marks –

1tbsp tulsi powder and tomato juice accordingly. Apply this paste and keep for 20 minutes. Then wash it off. It helps in reducing blemishes.

My Experience – When i used this powder At first i didn’t notice any results. But when i used 2-3 times i started loving it. I liked it more with tomato juice. My skin appears clean and fresh. But honestly i cant comment on the scar fading thing as of now. I have used just 3-4 times. May be prolonged use will help with fading marks. If in future i notice any results i will update about the same on this post.

While removing the facepack instead of washing i scrub it gently at first and then wash the rest with water. This way it feels more good on the skin.

Do i recommend it? Yes totally. Go for it. You wont be disappointed.

Tulsi powder can be used with so many other ingredients to make facepack that is suitable for your skin.

GLAMISHA: Facewash & Skin Lightening Cream Reviewย 

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Lets start with the review of face wash first ๐Ÿ™‚

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 ๐Ÿ™‚ If you have any questions or suggestions  about the products do comment below.

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.

The Junior Instant hand sanitizer comes in a transparent  plastic bottle with a flip cap. It is priced at Rs 50 for 30ml. 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.

  • Contains Aloe Vera gel
  • Specially designed &  imported fruity fragrance from UK
  • Specially formulated for children’s soft and smooth hands
  • Contains Moisturizers and Vitamin E which keeps kids hands soft and smooth

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Yes Zuci has 5 more variants in this. You can check them out HERE

It has a runny consistency and contains tiny Vitamin E beads. All information regarding price, directions of use, expiry, ingredients are mentioned behind the bottle. It is priced at 99Rs for 250ml. 

    My Experience – All i can say is ‘I am loving it’. It has got mouth watering fragrance and the way it feels on my hands and that eye catching packaging and it doesn’t even burns a hole in my pocket. I love everything about this product. 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. She intentionally dirty her hands and go to wash her hands again and again.๐Ÿ˜ Zuci has 2 more variants in this. You can check them out HERE

    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.

    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

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ Hope you find this review helpful. If you have any queries or suggestions do commemt below and i will reply asap.

    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.

    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.
