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.

You can buy this from Amazon, flipkart, medical stores  , supermarkets.

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.

Skin18.com – Beauty Friends Potato Essence Mask & Luke Hyaluron Essence Mask Review

Hello Readers,

I know i have been MIA from the blog for quite some time now thats because i wasn’t keeping well. Now i am feeling a little better and its good to be back in action.I have a lot of posts pending so expect back to back blog posts from me. 

So after being back in action the first thing that i decided to review is sheet masks from Skin18.com I tried out 2 sheet masks, both from different brands. One from Luke and the other from Beauty FriendsII. 

Beauty Friends II potato essence mask- I decided to try the potato mask first since i wasnt familiar with the other one. This potato mask is from brand Beauty Friends II. Just so that you now there are 22 types of masks from Beauty friends. One of then being Potato Essence Mask.

This Potato Essence mask contains potato extracts that helps the skin absorb nutrients which in turn helps to deeply moisture the skin. It helps to repair damanged and rough skin. Also helps in getting rid of dark and puffy areas. 

My Experience: The pack contains a single sheet.Unlike other sheet masks that i have used this one wasn’t overloaded with essence. I applied on the face and kept it on for 15mintues. I did not notice and irritation while the mask sat on my face. After 15 minutes i decided to take off the mask. After taking off i massaged the excess essence into my face. You dont need to wash the dace after removing the mask. That’s the best part of these sheet masks. My skin felt softer and highly moisturised. My face was looking so fresh and bright. It helped me get rid of dullness. This sheet mask has now become one of my favourite. Apart from this  aloe soothing mask from Four seasons and Moisturising cucumber pack from purederm are my extreme favourite. 

You can buy this Potato Essence mask from HERE Trust me you are going to love this one. 

Luke Hyaluron Essence Mask- The next sheet mask that i tried is hyaluron essence mask from Luke. Honestly i had no idea what i was putting on my face. I dont know what hyaluron means. So before using i decided to google the same and what i read is that its a hyaluronic acid which is used as a ingredient in many facial creams. That it has great restoration properties & can boost skin’s moisture content. It also helps in lubricating skin layers making skin smoother and softer. 

 My Experience – As usual i cleaned my face and applied the mask. Did not feel any irritation. After 15minutes i removed the mask and massaged excess essence into my face. It refreshes the skin and improves its elasticity. It gives an Instant shot of moisturisation to my skin. At first i was a bit hesitant to use it but after using i simply like it. Though i am not going to try this again. You can buy and know more about the mask HERE

So thats all for now. If you ask me which mask you should go for i would definitely recommend the potato one.

So last week i received the Tatha Clay Mask Normal from the brand. Here have a look

image

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

Ingredients & Direction of use (refer pic)

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.

Ethicare Remedies : Caladew Calamine Lotion Review

Hello Readers 🙂
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.

The lip scrub is orange in colour and its texture is fine grind sugar with a generous dollop of shea butter. It smells of orange & caramel. It’s delicious and smells so good that i am tempted to taste it. Well since its natural and doesn’t contains any non sense stuff i wouldn’t mind tasting it 😁 The lip scrub is priced at 950rs.

Ingredients : Caster Sugar, Shea Butter, Sweet Orange Essential Oil

How to Use : scrub gently, wash off (preferably with warm water) and follow with a lip butter or lip tint balm.

image

My Experience We all know that its very important to exfoliate the lips to get rid off dry and dead skin on the lips. A good Lip scrub can help you get soft and silky lips. I have been using this lip scrub for one week now.  After the bath when my lips are wet i dab a little of this lip scrub with my fingers and scrub gently for a minute. It gently exfoliates lips, leaving them super soft. Its not at all harsh and wont irritate the lips. I love touching my lips after using this lip scrub because it makes my lips this soft, oh and satisfys my sweet tooth at the same time 😜
Overall a good product. I totally recommend this. You are going to notice the results in first use itself. Do try this scrub. The only thing is the price which i find a bit high. Other than that the scrub works amazing. This can also make for a perfect gift for your friend. The brand has Lip Combos (lip butter, lip scrub, lip tint ) which can make for a cute gift hamper.

My Experience
I have acne prone skin and hence i use scrubs rarely. Because for a reason i find them harsh on my acne prone skin. I used this rose facial scrub only once and i found it very gentle on my skin. I mixed the scrub with milk to make a paste and then applied it. I kept it on for few minutes and then washed off my face. It made my skin so soft. My skin was looking cleaner and it did not irritate my skin. I did not feel the need to run and grab a moisturiser. Thats because it didn’t dry out my skin. Also i love its scent. Its very soothing. People with dry skin are going to love this scrub more. If you have oily skin try mixing this scrub only with water instead of milk and then use it.

Do i Recommend it?
Yes totally. Its natural and suitable for all skin types. Plus its gentle and effective.

These are hydrating & smooths easily on my lips giving them a glossy feeling & shine. Keeps my lips hydrated for good 2-3 hours. These are very slippery on lips as they contain so many oils so be careful you dont overload your lips. Being slippery they almost sit on the top  of my lips & takes time to completely sink in. They are a lot like Vaseline but  these are petroleum free.
I love all the 3 variants and totally enjoy using these lip moisturizers.
