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.

Zuci Junior Instant Hand Sanitizer (strawberry) & Fruit Hand Wash (Ripe Berry Blast) Review 

Hello Readers,

Today i am going to review a Hand Sanitizer and a Hand Wash from brand ZUCI

About the brand – Zuci is one of the leading personal care brands from Zodhita Health Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a health and hygiene enterprise based in Mumbai. Their product range includes Hand Sanitizer, wet wipes,hand wash and colorful bag tags too. 

Last week team ZUCI sent me a Junior Instant Hand Sanitizer in strawberry variant with Moisturizers and vitamin E & Fruit Hand Wash in Ripe berry blast variant with Aloe & Vitamin E beads. Here have a look 

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.

  • More effective than any of the today’s leading brands
  • 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 🙂 Yes Zuci has 5 more variants in this. You can check them out HERE

    Zuci Fruit Hand Wash Ripe Berry Blast

    The hand wash comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a pump dispenser. The scent of the hand wash is a combination of 3 berries – strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. 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.😁 Zuci has 2 more variants in this. You can check them out HERE

    So that’s all for now. ☺️

    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.

    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.

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. But using repeatedly will definitely give you good results. It is also said to be effective for hair loss. But i cant comment on the hairfall thing as i dont have hairfall issues. All i can say is it does makes my hair look healthier and does away with dandruff.

    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.

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.

    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.

    At Brihans Natural products are made with 100% natural active ingredients to give you naturally beautiful & healthier skin & hair.

    So last week i got this Aloe Face wash Gel with turmeric & tea tree oil from Brihans Natural. I have been using it since then.

    What the brand says – Green Leaf Aloe Face Wash Gel with turmeric extract is a soap-free gel with scrub beads that combines Aloe Vera’s superior skin care with the skin cleansing& healing qualities of turmeric and tea tree. Green leaf aloe face wash gel has ISO-diametric scrub beads that gently exfoliates the dead skin tissue of the skin and opens skin pores, exposing the beauty within.

    Ingredients – 

    My Experience  I have been using this face wash for a week now and find it good for my acne prone skin. When i use the face wash in morning I take a peanut size amount and it is enough for my entire face. But it doesn’t creates heavy foam. It just forms mild foam which is actually good. That way it wont dry out your skin excessively. It cleanse the skin well, driving away all the oilyness. My skin feels fresh and thoroughly cleaned after using this face wash. It also has small scrub beads which helps in exfoliating the skin gently. The scrub beads are very tiny and so they are extremely gentle on the skin. When i come back home from hot sun then i usually require more amount of face wash to clean entire days dirt and oily ness. But the face wash does the job well. It keeps away oilyness and at the same time wont dry your skin. So it is good for both dry and oily skin types. Also the face wash is soap free so its effective but gentle on your skin at the same time.

    Overall a good face wash and i recommend it totally. I dont find any such cons in this product. Everthing from packaging to its usage is pretty good.

    • Gentle on skin
    • Effective
    • Soap free

      Junaili Apricot Body Scrub Review

      Hello Readers 🙂
      Remember I had introduced you all to a new brand called Junaili a few days back wherein i had reviewed a Apricot Body Oil from their range. Check it HERE  Today i am reviewing yet another product from Junaili. Its the Apricot Body Scrub. Before you continue to read the review please check out about Junaili HERE

      Junaili Apricot Body scrub

      image

      About the scrub- The scrub is made in himalayas from the finest apricots and is 100% pure and chemical free. No parabens, no preservatives, no artificial fragrance, no animal testing. The scrub is gentle and suitable for all skin types. The scrub is in powder form and it has got a smell of walnuts which is so pure and nothing artificial.

      image

      Packaging – The scrub comes in a transparent plastic jar with a screw cap. I wish there was a protection lid beneath the jar cap. Price, mfg date, best before everything has been mentioned on the jar. I love the jar packaging. It looks classy on my bathroom shelf.

      image

      Price: 250rs for 125gms
      Best Before 12 months from mfg date

      My Experience: The scrub needs to be combined with water or milk while using. So i combined the scrub with water and applied it on my body and my first thoughts were ‘wow it feels so smooth on my skin ‘. When i applied it my skin felt so smooth and the scrub is extremely gentle on my skin. You can feel the skin so smooth in just one use.  The scrub can be used on face too. Apricot removes dead skin cells ,blackheads, unblock pores & cleans the skin gently. It is said to be good for Acne too.  I used the scrub on my face and to be honest my face did not like it. Its not harsh on the face but still i did not enjoy using it on my face as much as i did while using it on my body. If you want to use on face i recommend you mix it with raw milk and then use it.

      Do i recommend it? Yes totally. The product being free from parabens and chemicals wont harm your skin and is extremely gentle. The product is pocket friendly too. It’s hard to find natural and chemical free products at such reasonable rates. So go for it. I am sure you are going to love it.
