Red Rose Orange Peel Powder Review & DIY orange facepack

Hello Readers

Making your own facepack is so much fun and good to use on your skin. You know what you are going to feed your skin with. No matter what imported facepack you are using but the feeling of using a homemade one is entirely different. A natural one free from all that nasty stuff!

We use ingredients like multani mitti, neem powder, tulsi powder, etc to make facepacks. But many a times we find it difficult to make such powder at home. Well you need not worry as RED ROSE has got you covered. At red rose you will such powders which are 100% natural and also pocket friendly.

I recently got a orange peel powder from brand RED ROSE to make orange facepack. The orange peel powder from Red Rose is made from 100% Pure and Natural Dried orange peel. It has nothing added to it.

This 100gms pack is priced at 50rs.

Orange peel has anti bacterial properties which is great for oily skin. It also helps with marks and pigmentation and works as a skin lightening agent.

Orange Face Pack – This facepack is good for oily and acne prone skin.

I made my orange face pack using 3 ingredients – Orange peel powder from red rose brand, multani mitti also from red rose brand and lemon.

Mix 1tbsp multani mitti and 1tbsp orange peel powder. Add 3 4 drops of lemon to it. Add a little water ( you can also use rose water). Mix properly and your face pack is ready to be used. Apply and keep for 15 minutes then wash off gently with water.

I love using this. The orange peel powder from Red Rose brand is simply amazing. I can use it with so many different ingredients and make my own facepack. It feels very refreshing on the skin. I didn’t notice any irritation on my skin. Neither any major dryness. The results depends on what ingredients you are using in your facepack. I just dont like the packaging of the product. I wish it had come in some container and not in a sachet.

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.

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

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.

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.

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
