Yami Herbals Homemade Skin Brightening Face Pack & Traditional Hair Oil Review 

Hello Readers,

Recently i was looking out for homemade beauty products and stumbled upon Yami Herbals which makes 100% Natural homemade products and that’s when i decided to try them.

You all may not be familiar with Yami Herbals, so i am going to tell you a little about the brand. Based in Tamilnadu, YAMI HERBALS makes and sells personal care products that are kind to your skin and the environment. Their skin and haircare recipes are inspired by traditions that are slowly being forgotten, but are presented with a modern twist. All their products are natural, vegetarian, affordable, and made with love and care.

Products include traditional herbal hair oil, hair pack, baby bath powder , skin polishing Scrubs, skin brightening facepack and Shikakaai hair wash powder.

Here i am going to talk about two products from Yami herbals – Skin Brightening Face pack and Traditional hair oil.

Currently my hair and face skin are going through a bad phase and hence my looking out for homemade products. Read on to know my experience with yami herbal products…

Yami Herbals Skin brightening face pack –

The face pack is in powder form and is a mixture of badam, pista, potato starch, whole green gram, cucumber seeds, orange peel, pudina leaves, cinnamon, oats, samba wheat and aavarampoo.

Suitable for all skin types

Priced at 200rs fir 100gms.

Best before 1 year from mfg date.

How to use – Mix the pack with curd or milk and make a thin paste. Apply and scrub gently all over the face. Wait for 10mins and then wash off with warm water and massage with ice cube.

My experience – To be honest, i always have to think twice before putting anything on my face but given that yami herbals face pack contains ingredients which are 100% natural i didn’t hesitate to use it. I am using this face pack twice in a week. And no i didn’t get brighter skin. But the face pack does benefits my skin. It sweeps away impurities and reveals a smoother skin. It doesn’t dries out my skin nor makes it oily. So whether you have dry, oily or sensitive skin this face mask will definitely help you. Its not going to make your skin bright overnight but yes it does lifts up skin. My skin feels healthy and fresh. The ingredients present in the face pack are very beneficial for the skin.

Yami herbals traditional hair oil-

Priced at 460rs for 100gms.

Best before 1 year from mfg date

The hair oil is a blend of 12 herbals that are useful in strengthening and prevents greying of hair naturally.

My experienceLately my hair have been extremely dry and my hairfall has increased. I have tried a few solutions like changing my shampoo and hair oil. Currently using the yami herbals hair oil. I started using this hair oil 20 days ago and having applied twice in a week so far i noticed that my hairfall is a little less but it didn’t help with the ‘dry hair’ thing. It does helps with the dandruff problem. I cant comment on the greying thing. May be this hair oil will work excellent for those having oily hair. Being a herbal formulation the smell of the oil is bit turn off. I am going to give some more time to this product to see if it helps with my dry hair problem.

Overall i loved the Yami Herbal products since by using them i am giving my skin the treatment it deserves.

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

  • Made Fresh
  • Hydrating

I enjoyed surfing their website and shopping with them since the products are decent in every manner- Price, quality etc. The only difficulty i faced is, in some places they haven’t mentioned the quantity of an item. This created a confusion for me. Because in few pictures they have shown 2 products but their actual quantity is only 1. I faced this problem while i was looking for table mats and pillow covers.
I had ordered two items from their website and both the orders came separately. Since the products are from two different sellers. The shipping fee was 40rs for Mumbai. I placed my order on Sept 14th so i got 1parcel on 20thsept and the other one on 22ndsept. I also wanted to order few food items but sadly those were not available for my area.

Here is what i purchased from the site

Hello Readers 🙂
Recently i came across an indian brand called Island Kiss. The people behind this brand are Shaili & Siddhartha who launched their company in goa in 2015.

Island Kiss Organic Lip Moisturizers Review

I have been using these lip moisturizers since 4-5 days and i am already in love with these babies.

I totally love the packaging of the lip moisturizers. It comes inside a squeezable tube with a screw cap and has a slanted tip applicator which makes it easy to apply & enables smooth application. The tube has designs & colours as per the variants. All the ingredients are mentioned behind the tube. The tube comes inside a cardboard box. The price & best before have been mentioned behind the cardboard box.

Cherry Blossoms & Alma Vanilla is priced at 399rs each and Puerto Berry Blush is priced at 499rs. Each of these lip moisturizers have their own unique smell & colour. Each of these lip moisturizers are loaded with Tropical Avocado & Mango Butter, Organic Beeswax, Stevia, Organic carrot seed oil, Pure castor oil, Rich Vitamin E oil, Organic Mecademia Nut oil, Citrus oil, Raspberry Seed essential oil, Natural Oragnic Colour.

Island Kiss Lip Moisturizers Swatches

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.

They are non toxic, petroleum free, 100℅ natural & pure so feel free to lick your lips & savour the taste of your island kiss. LOL 😀

BON ORGANICS-Facial Soap Review

Hello pouters & posers, how you all are doing ? 🙂

Its wedding season & this month i attended like 4-5 wedding functions continuously which means lots of travelling and applying loads of makeup. It has taken a toll on my skin  due to all day makeup face. My skin hardly got any time to breath. Thats when the bon organic facial soap came to my rescue.

About BON – We are not a company but a journey that began in Auroville, India by one man named Ganesh Chandrasekaran back in 1997. At the time, it was only the pure application of several Ayurvedic recipes to treat health problems luring among the locals. Further on, as proper nutrition is the root of Ayurveda, healthy dining was made available back in the days. From there we realised that this conscious living was a priceless gift of good and wellbeing hidden in the act of being organic, natural and bio-environment friendly; hence was born our name Bio Organic & Natural signifying the act of being natural, inartificial, and conscious within and about our surrounding in our daily routine including our accessorial practices towards skin, body, & hair care along with our home hygiene and health. Overall, our abbreviation represents and means ‘good’ for everyone.

Today, our journey continues to follow the light. We are proud to announce that our growth is measured in the smile on our customers’ faces and the love in our employees’ hearts worldwide. At BON we are a healthy family, here we don’t refer to big investors of any sort but the lovely hearts that make us who we are Team. Our Team is holding hands on skilled, talented, artistic and creative women from surrounding areas. who are the gentle handed who craft every product individually to the perfection, the team make this art possible and eventually safe guard it until it lands on your hands similar to nature’s exertion resulting in pure rain drops.

We are not commercial; we don’t just buy the special ingredients and run them through automated processes to turn them into products in bulk quantities ready to be sold for money. Instead, we source our precious ingredients selectively and, following some of the most traditional recipes from Ayurveda & ancient Southern India, we handcraft these ingredients with attention and care to produce only the finest products that can suit everyone. All our products are 100% handmade, hand filled, and packed by hand in small batches in order to keep the richness of the ingredients intact and effective. NONE ARE TESTED ON ANIMALS. ALL PRODUCTS ARE IN  ECO FRIENDLY & ENVIRONMENT SAFE PACKAGING.

So Two weeks ago i received a facial soap from BON to be reviewed on my blog.

Bio Organic & Natural’s organic Facial soap is made with an excellent recipe for facial needs and protects the skin from the harmful rays of sunlight & the many forms of pollution. The ingredients help restore the skin with its tone, cleanliness, texture, and moisture level. If you’re a person who constantly stays in an air-conditioned room, you’ll need this soap to restore that life and water in your skin especially on your facial skin which is generally exposed as it is uncovered (well unless you’re wearing a full face mask which is extremely rare). Unlike all our other soaps, this one is in particular formulated for the face with numerous handpicked essential oils to hydrated and safe guard the face from acne bursts and other facial discomforts.

Packaging : It comes wraped inside a dry leaf with a paper note rolled over it which contains information about the soap, its price, weight & ingredients. Its a eco friendly packaging. Thumbs up for this packaging.



Smell : I cannot make out what it smells like but i think it smells like Johnson’s baby powder 😛 The smell is gentle and not overpowering.

Ingredients: Saponified Organic sunflower oil [Helianthus Annuus], Organic Corn oil (Zea Mays) Organic Coconut oil (Cocos Nucifera), Organic Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis), Organic Neem Oil (Melia Azadirachta), Almond oil (Almond (Prunus Dulcis), Demineralized water, Cocoa butter [Theobroma Cacao], Yogurt, Shea butter [Butyrospermum Parkii], Multani mitti [Multani Mitti, Solum Fullonum], Essential oil of sandal wood [Santalum Album], Extract of lemon [Citrus Medica Limonum], Essential oil of Tea tree [Melaleuca Alternifolia], Jojoba oil [Simmondsia Chinensis], Grapefruit oil [Citrus grandis], Natural preservative salinatural TCLS based on Turmeric Oil, Clove Bud Oil, Lemon Grass Oil and Sesame Oil.

Price: Rs 152 for 100g

Best before: 2years from mfg date

Before writing my experience let me tell you that i had this little doubt in my mind whether soaps can be used on the face? I decided to email the BON team and ask them what makes this soap suitable for face. And here is what they replied. —> Dear Ekta,thanks for your query.
Firstly, I would like to clarify that statement. The ‘soap’ that cannot be used on the face is referred to the commercial cleansing bars you can widely find in the market these days (BUT these are NOT soaps at all).
These are merely cleansers.
Our organic & handmade soaps in the other hand can be used on the face and body. In fact all our soaps can be used on the face as well as body. The reason for this is because we are using a unique UCP process which doesn’t involve any harsh chemicals or any heating or other nonsense that may harm the skin (face or body) in any way. We use a blending technique which is very unique and an ancient and forgotten soap making technique from Gandhigram, Southern India. 
At BON we treat skin, the biggest organ of our body, as precious as any other regardless of whether it is facial skin or of the rest of the body.
I hope this answers your query. 🙂

My Experience: As i said that applying loads of makeup had taken a toll on my skin. I got few pimples and my face looked dull and iritated. Tired by attending functions i felt so lazy to use the makeup remover , cleansers and all that stuff. I decided to pick up this facial soap to wash my face. After washing my face the feeling that it gave to my skin was Reposing. I was in aww of this soap. It cleanses the skin so well leaving it fresh looking, clean and so soft. It instantly breathes new life into the skin. My face looks fair after using it. The soap is gentle on my face and did not stretch out my skin or dry it out. It not only cleanses but will also give your skin the feeling of calmness. I love using this soap every night before going to bed. My skin loves it too for its free from chemicals and other non sense stuff.
I highly recommend this soap for all those who wear makeup regularly & have to deal with harsh sunrays & have dull skin.

rating: 5/5

I would like to thank the brand for introducing me to this soap. 🙂
