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 πŸ™‚ If you have any queries or suggestions please comment below.

Hello Readers,

Recently i treated my hair with something new – Raw & Dry Hibiscus flower from BEKIND (to make my own hair oil).

This raw and dry hibiscus flower from BeKind Bodycare was sent to me by JasNaturals. Jas Naturals provide 100% Prime Natural and Vegan Cosmetics, Beauty Care, Bath Care, Hand Crafts and Snacks curated for the benefits of the customer and the nature in the best eco-friendly way possible.
About the product & how to prepare the hair oil:

Best Before: Mentioned on the pack is just expiry date ie 30/4/2017. Date of packing is not mentioned. I got this product in mid march.

The product is dry hibiscus flower and it looks like this. It has smell that of dried leaves.

Some Benefits of Hibiscus flower for hair: 

  • Boosts hair growth
  • Rich in vitamin C that boosts collagen 
  • Anti dandruff
  • Does away with itchiness
  • Prevents premature greying
  • Has cleansing and moisturising properties

My Experience: I have come across a number of products that are enriched with hibiscus but always hesitated to use them. Since many products are laddened with chemicals. So when JasNaturals sent me this Raw & Dry hibiscus flowers for #doityourself hair oil, i was very excited to use it. I prepared the oil as directed and applied it at night twice a week. 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.

A good product overall and the best way to treat your hair with hibiscus.

The product is

  • Easy to prepare
  • Easy on pocket
  • Free from chemicals

Do give it a try. You are definately going to love it πŸ™‚

TBC by nature offers a wide range of products in haircare, skincare, skin treatment products, baby care and many more. It aims at providing high quality products to its customers.

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

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.

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.

    Junaili Apricot Body Scrub Review

    Hello Readers πŸ™‚
    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 HEREΒ  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.

    Junaili Apricot Body Oil Review

    Hello Readers,
    Its been long since i posted anything on the blog. So i am back with a review of an amazing product. Its the Apricot Body Oil from the Brand JUNAILI . I am crazy for body oils. Only the natural ones though. They are must for me after a bath. So recently while searching on instagram in hashtags for bodyoils i came across this brand JUNAILI. And i was kinda eager to try their body oil.
      About the brand: JUNAILI is a family owned business based in Nanital, Uttarkhand. Their product range currently includes Apricot body oil and Apricot body scrub. They cold-press their own Apricot Oil at 7000 ft in the Kumaon Himalayas, to exacting standards. Their oils and scrubs are made in small batches to maintain high quality and freshness.

    image

    The Apricot Body Oil from junaili is made in the himalayas from the finest Apricots. It is 100% pure and chemical free.

    image

    image

    Packaging- The body oil comes in a transparent brown plastic bottle with a screw cap and has a stopper inside. The packaging is nice but what disappoints me is, while using the oil i have to dip my fingers inside the bottle. There is no hole in the stopper. Even if i pour the oil directly into my palm there are chances of spillage and wastage as more than required quantity of oil may come out. Other than that i love the packaging.

    The colour of oil is transparent like water and it smells of walnut when you smell it inside the bottle. After applying on skin the smell almost vanishes.

    Price: 350Rs for 120ml
    Best Before 24months from Mfg date

    My Experience: i have a habit of moisturising my skin from down my neck too. For this i mostly use body oils. And i love body oils which are chemical free and non sticky. Apricot body oil from junaili happens to be one of them πŸ™‚ After the shower i immediately applied the oil on my hands and legs and to my surprise it wasn’t sticky at all. It gets easily absorbed into the skin without leaving any oily feeling. It makes my skin so soft and supple. Once i apply it, it keeps my skin moisturised for long hours. I dont find the need to moisturise my skin again. This is because Vitamin A & E and Omega 6 & 9 present in it helps nourish the skin thus maintaining the moisture balance.Being very light in texture it can be used by both, people with dry skin or oily skin. This Apricot oil is the perfect way to feed my skin directly with the purest nutrients. The oil is also said to be useful for ailments like eczema, joint paints etc.

    Do i Recommend it ? Or will i Buy it again ? Yes. Being 100% pure & chemical free and doing wonders to my skin i totally recommend it. The chemical laddened products only further dry out your skin so opt for chemical free products. Also its decently priced so it wont burn a hole in your pocket and anybody and everybody in your house can use it.

    Pros
    Great moisturising properties
    No oilyness
    Makes skin soft and supple
    Good for both oily and dry skin
    Gets easily absorbed into the skin
    Chemical free
    Multiple Uses
    Decently priced

    Cons
    The only CON is the opening of the bottle. It doesn’t have a hole in the stopper. Which makes it diffcult to use and kinda unhygienic.

    What the Product Claims?
    This clay mask is soft and silky for sensitive skin and is the most gentle of all the clays. It is very mild, nurturing, and is particularly good for all skin types exfoliating and cleaning gently.

    image

    Packaging The Mask comes inside a glass tub container with a black plastic screw cap. It also has a white plastic lid inside which covers the mouth of the tub. The glass tub packaging is not at all travel friendly. But according to the brand plastic containers react with the essential ingredients used in aromatherapy and loses its potency and hence the glass tub packaging. The glass tub comes inside a cardboard box which contains all the information regarding price, best before, ingredients, directions of use etc

    Price 525 Rs for 50gms

    My Experience The mask is a pink creamy paste which spreads easily on the face and it smells of rose water. I applied the mask on my face and kept it on for 10-15 mins. It did not feel heavy. Even after drying the mask did not give any stretchy feeling to my face. After 10-15 mins i decided to remove the mask. I wiped it out with a warm wet wash cloth as directed. What i noticed is that it gives an instant glow to the face without making it dry and oily. Its just perfect. It very gentle on the face as said by the brand. It cleanse the skin well leaving it fresh and new. Also since the mask is more like a calamine lotion it will work good on acne prone skin also. I love everything about this mask and it works great on my combination skin.

    You can buy the mask from HERE

    Ethicare Remedies : Caladew Calamine Lotion Review

    Hello Readers πŸ™‚
    We all are familiar with Calamine Lotion. It is widely used for protecting skin against minor infections like itching, pain, insect bite, rashes, sunburn and even acne.
    Recently i received a calamine lotion called Caladew from Ethicare Remedies.

    image

    What the product says ?
    Caladew lotion with its balanced formulation offers soothing- cooling action and gives relief in skin conditions like prickly heat, insect bite, itching, sunburn, nappy rash etc

    Ingredients
    Kaolin
    Zinc oxide
    Cucumber extract
    Aloe vera
    Silicon oil
    Glycerin

    Price 81rs for 75ml
    Best Before 36 months from mfg date

    image

    image

    The packaging is simple and pink tube with screw cap looks very pretty.
    The lotion is pastel pink coloured and has a runny consistency.

    image

    My Experience: I have used calamine lotion before but they had thick consistency as compared to this caladew lotion which is quite runny. So when i was using the caladew lotion i ended up with excess lotion on my palms. Without even squeezing the tube the lotion comes out. When i applied the lotion it was easy to spread it but it takes a while to get completely absorbed into the skin. It gives a whitening effect to the skin, a matte finish.

    image

    Just two drops of the lotion are enough for the entire face. When ever i head out in sun i apply this because it prevents my face from getting tanned and oily. Many a times i use it as a base under my makeup so that my face doesnt looks dull and shiny. The lotion contains zinc oxide which helps in treating acne. When i am at home i just apply it on my pimples it reduces the redness of it. Overall a good product. People with oily skin are going to love this. Though people with dry skin may not like it much.

    Totally Recommended
