Direction of use:

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

Ecotique: Saffron oil (100% natural) Review

I have a thing for body oils and have used quite a number of them. To name a few – Coconut oil, almond oil, olive oil etc. But i haven’t used a saffron oil before and never knew it could do wonders to your skin untill ECOTIQUE sent me their 100% natural himalayan Saffron Oil to try. 

About Ecotique – Ecotique is a beauty care brand that combines best Natural Ingredients from around the world and brings to you natural cosmetic product. Ecotique products are free from Sulfates, parabens, glycol, silicone, Artificial fragrances, harmful preservatives. 
About Ecotique Saffron Oil (As said by the brand) – Ecotique’s Saffron Body Oil, is formulated by infusing 100 % natural Himalayan Saffron strands in a blend of natural oils. Saffron is loaded with antioxidants and has antibacterial properties that help fade blemishes and acne, and also reduces signs of ageing. By infusing Himalayan Saffron in a blend of Argan, Jajoba and Rice Bran oil, ecotique have created a body oil that combats sun damage and brightens your skin, while moisturizing it. The active components in saffron have many therapeutic applications in aromatherapy as an antiseptic, antidepressant, anti-oxidant, digestive and anti-convulsant.

Simply massage a few drops onto moist skin, after a shower or a bath for soft, supple glowing skin.

Price 349rs for 30ml
Best before 2years from mfg date. 

My Experience I have been using this oil since a week and loving it to the core. The oil is non sticky and non greasy. The oil has strands of saffron in it and smells purely of saffron. The smell is mild and not over powering at all. On applying it easily gets absorbed into the skin without making the skin sticky/oily. It leaves the skin looking healthy and glowing. It moisturises the skin just right. I love how my skin feels after applying this oil.I have acne prone skin and use this on my face too. As saffron is said to be good for acne treatments. Usually when i use face creams, my face becomes oily which causes acne. But this saffron oil doesn’t makes my face oily and so i find it best for my acne prone skin. I also apply this oil on my dark circles at night. The best thing is its natural and non sticky and suits every skin type. I totally recommend this. 

Pros

  • 100% Natural
  • Non sticky
  • Non greasy
  • Moisturizes the skin just right
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Mild Scent
  • Free from Chemicals


Cons

  • Packaging should have been better. ( i have to dip my fingers inside to use the oil which is kind of unhygienic. )
  • Some may find it a bit costly.

We all are aware of wet wipes. They are a common things now-a-days. They are used not just on the face but for many other purposes such as household cleaning, at workplace, personal care, even while travelling these wet wipes come handy. Earlier they were just a summer need but now they are used in day to day life.Yes there are many companies out there selling wet wipes but what matters is the quality. Today i am reviewing one such wet wipes.

Recently i came across wet wipes of an  Indian Brand called DUFT. Duft has 2Variants in wet wipes –
Aloe Vera & Cucumber
Aqua.

Duft- Aloevera & Cucumber wet wipes review

About: Cucumber which keeps the skin cool and refreshing. It helps remove dirt and impurities from the face and neck. Cucumber nourishes the skin from deep pores and leaves the skin breathing and gives a freshening feel.

Size: 200mm × 150mm
Price: 75rs for 25wipes
Best Before: 2years from mfg date
Material: Spun Lace Non Woven fabric

How did i find it? Used it on my face and found it pretty good. It doesn’t irritates my skin nor does it dries out my skin. Neither did it make my skin oily. No iritation nothing. It gently cleans the skin. Since these are alcohol free and paraben free it wont harm your skin. It has a nice scented smell which some of you might find strong. I also used this to clean my desk and it cleans pretty well. The packaging is good too since its resealable. You can easily carry this in your bag.

About: This one is loaded with Vit E which is the key ingredient for soft and smooth and glowing skin. It helps remove dirt and impurities from the face and neck. Vitamin E clears the skin and leaves it smooth, subtle and free flowing.

Size: 200mm × 150mm
Price: 75rs for 25wipes
Best Before: 2years from mfg date
Material: Spun Lace Non Woven fabric

My experience: Just like the Aloevera and cucumber this one is also gentle on the skin. I also used it to wipe out my makeup and it did the job well. This one is less scented as compared to aloevera & cucumber. For those who dont like strong scents should go for this. I also used this to clean my desk and it cleans easily. I dont have to struggle with it. The packaging is good too since its resealable. You can easily carry this in your bag.

Pros
✔ Alcohol free
✔ Paraben free
✔ Gentle on skin
✔ Resealable Pack
✔ Decently priced
✔ Multipurpose
✔ For all skin types (both variants)
✔ Mild scented (Aqua Variant)

Cons (not really a con for everyone)
❌I find the scent of Aloevera & Cucumber a bit overpowering. (Con only for those who dont like strong fragrance).
❌I wish they had packets of lesser wipes,say pack of 10 (for those who want to try at first) I only found pack of 25wipes on their website.

PLEASE NOTE: These wet wipes are not for personal hygiene ( As stated on the pack)

Ma Earth Botanicals Soaps Review

Long back i had received two soaps from Ma Earth Botanicals: Jojoba & neroli soap and Kaolin & Ylang Ylang soap. Today i am going to review these cute soaps. I had already introduced you guys to the brand Ma Earth Botanicals in my previous post where in i had reviewed a hair cleanser from their range. Check it HERE

Coming back to the Soap review….

All handcrafted soaps from Ma Earth Botanicals are made using the traditional cold process method. The cold pressed bars are made using natural plant-based vegetables, nuts, fruits, herbs, cold pressed oils, whole grain oatmeal, honey and pure essential oils. All their soaps cure for a period of 6 weeks before they are hand-wrapped. The soaps are Cruelty Free * No Harsh Detergents * No Artificial Colors * No Synthetic Fragrance * No Preservatives * SLES Free * Paraben Free.

These soaps came wrapped inside butter paper and had brand name & soap name written on it. None other information was mentioned on the packaging. The soap has cubicle shape and has a soothing smell. I cannot make out what it smells like but all i can say is the smell is nothing artificial or overpowering.

About Jojoba & Neroli Soap.

A creamy bar of soap enriched with Jojoba oil, renowned for its absorption and moisturizing abilities. Jojoba oil is not actually an oil, but a liquid wax. It is hypoallergenic, soothes and improves skin’s suppleness. Coupled with Neroli essential oil which not only has great therapeutic properties, but also the most incredible, uplifting fragrance. It has a relaxing effect on the mind and body, relieving muscle spasms, calming heart palpitations and a wonderful rejuvenating and regenerative effect on the skin, helping to soften scars and fighting stretch marks.

About Kaolin & Ylang Ylang Soap:

kaolin clay or “China clay” has excellent absorbant qualities. It draws out impurities and toxins and thereby clears the skin of excess oil, dirt and pollutants. Kaolin clay is recommended for both dry and oily skin. It reduces production of sebum and helps in healing dryness. Combined with Ylang Ylang essential oil, well-known for its calming effect on the mind and body, as well as maintaining emotional and spiritual balance.

Ingredients:Aqua, Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) oil, Bolus Alba (Kaolin) clay, Sodium Hydroxide, Cananga odorata (Ylang Ylang) essential oil.

Price: 475 for 100gms.

My Experience: These soaps feel extremely smooth on the body and creates a creamy foam giving a luxurious feeling. It cleanse the skin so well without leaving it dry. These soaps melt super fast since they are free from preservatives & chemicals and hence these soaps need to be kept dry between each use. I totally love these soaps because they feel so great on my skin. Makes me feel fabulous.

My Hair Type: Dry Hair

My Experience:
When i applied the cleanser i loved the cool feeling that it gave to my scalp. It cleanse my scalp well without leaving it oily & sticky.The cleanser doesnt lathers much and you may want more amt of it for your entire hair. I being a bit kanjus hate this thing where i need to use more amount of product 😜Also i personally dont like pretty & pricey products getting over soon. My scalp was super clean but ouch it dried out hair. I have dry hair and it made my hair more dry. I was so excited to use this hair cleanser thinking being sulphate free it would do wonders to my hair. But sadly this product aint for me. If you have oily hair type it may work well on your hair. Definately give it a try. I am gonna continue using this product to see if it does any magic on my hair. So far i have used it only thrice. May be it will be good during summer days 🙂 Overall the cleanser is good.

Pros:
Free from parabens, sulphates & SLES
Cleanse scalp well
Soothing Smell
Not tested on animals

Cons:
Bad packaging
High price
Not good for dry hair

Rating: 3/5
