TBC by Nature: Sunblock Everyday Mattifying Cream SPF 30+

One of the things i hate about hot summer sun is the damage it does to the skin. My skin gets super oily and tanned as soon as i head out in hot sun. Which means, if i apply a sunscreen/sunblock cream while heading out, my skin tends to get more oily and sticky. Therefore i prefer not to apply anything on my face. But one must also know that a sunscreen/sunblock cream  is a must to protect the skin from sun damage. I have tried a number of suncreens and sunblocks but nothing seems to suit my skin. Everyday there is this constant fight in my mind  whether to or not to apply. On one side i hate getting my skin oily and on the other side i also fear my skin getting damaged. I am sure many of you might be facing the same issue as me. But hey, look i have found the solution —> 

Sunblock Everyday Mattifying Cream SPF 30+ from TBC by Nature

Recently TBC by Nature has come up with suncare range and one of the product from their suncare range is this Sunblock Everyday Mattifying cream Spf 30+ with organic carrot oil & grape juice. 

About the product / Direction of use / Ingredients – 

 The product is

  • Organic
  • Not tested on Animals
  • 100% veg
  • Fragrance free
  • LLP, Silicon, PABA free
  • Eco Certified

Packaging : It comes in tube with a flip cap. The tube comes inside a cardboard box. All the information has been mentioned both on the tube as well as cardboard box. Love the colour and the floral design on the tube.
The Sunblock cream is white in colour and has medium consistency.

Priced at 349rs for 120g

My Experience –

I was very excited to use this cream as it has the words ‘ mattifying’ on it.  As for all the oily skin beauties the word mattifying is the key. The cream is light in weight and doesn’t feels heavy on the skin. It needs to be massaged properly in order to get it completely absorbed by the skin. It doesn’t makes the skin oily nor leaves a whitish cast And also keeps my skin hydrated. My face looks a little radiant after applying this. But the radiant effect vanishes after a few hours. Zinc oxide & titanium dioxide present in the cream are very effective in protecting the skin from UV rays. The cream also contains organic carrot oil & grape juice to fight against aging effects of the sun on skin. Overall a good product. Totally recommended.

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 🙂 If you have any queries or suggestions please comment below.

  • Eco certified

Benefits: 

  • Removes dead skin cells
  • Uncover a smooth and new complexion
  • Decongest clogged pores
  • Radiant skin

Key Ingredients: Pineapple, Pomegranate, Keratinase. 

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

Ecotique Sandal & Cedar Natural Handmade Soap Review

Hello Readers,

Today i am going to review yet another product from Ecotique. Its a Sandal & Cedar Tranquility soap… natural and handmade with love 🙂

Made from Sandalwood and Cedarwood the soap is blackish brown in colour. It has a smell that is not fancy but somewhat warm and bitter.  The soap comes packed in a transparent plastic and has a paper cover on it which contains all information about the soap. 

Priced at 299Rs for  100gm 
Shelf life – 2years from mfg date

Ingredients

Natural and Handmade with absolutely no nasties at all

My Experience

The soap  feels great on my skin. It lathers easily and does the job of cleansing well. Though it doesn’t smells fancy it gives a refreshing feel because it removes excess oil from the skin leaving it clean. I dont feel any major dryness on my skin  as i do after using chemical ladden soaps. This soap is a simple yet effective product which is gentle on the skin. The soap being natural dissolve easily so make sure you keep it in a dry place. The soap also contains honey which provides anti microbial benefits.

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.

Think Frill : La Coffer ( Period Subscription Box) Introduction & Review

Hey Girlies, i am back with something exciting for you all. Well its related to those days which we really hate. Yes i am talking about PERIODS. I know how much we all girls hate those days and what all we have to go through during those days. But there is no running from this awful thing 😦 But i have something for you all that can make your period FUN. Well its the La Coffer.

What is La Coffer?
Thinkfrill(dot)com has introduced a period subscription box known as La Coffer. Its a monthly, subscription-based, menstrual care package, which takes care of all your sanitary and hygiene needs. This also includes an assortment of goodies every month! These include body products, beauty supplies, snacks and some great deals every month to make your period happy and hassle-free! ☺

They have 3 boxes Duchess Coffer, Princess Coffer, Queen Coffer.

Duchess Coffer – This is the coffer for all the minimalists out there – no frills or overly fancy additions. Just the simple menstrual care box. It starts at 150rs per month. You get goodies worth 310rs for just 150rs

Princess Coffer – Not the minimalist, but not the overly fancy kind either? Don’t worry, this coffer is just right – with all the bare necessities, plus a little extra something every once in a while.
It starts at 300Rs per month. You get goodies worth 480rs for just 300rs

Queen Coffer – Two words – Treat yourself. Go overboard with the pampering with the most extravagant of our coffers, and be the Queen that you are. Starts at 600rs per month. You get goodies worth 1150rs for just 600rs.

How does this works?

Step 1– You will have to choose your sanitary supplies (Pads, pantyliners ,tampons) plan depending upon the heaviness of your flow ( For eg – Light –10 pads/PL/Tampons. Medium – 15, Heavy – 20).
You also get to choose brand and size of the pads/PL/Tampons which you can do in the 4th step.

Step 2– Choose the box you want. Duchess or Princess or the Queen coffer.

Step 3–  Choose your plan
(1Month, 3Months or 6Months)

Step 4– Customize your Sanitary supplies.
Here you get to choose the brand ( sofy, whisper , stayfree) of pad/pantyliner/Tampons and the size of pad/Pantyliner/tampon.
Also you have the option to choose the Number of Pad/PL/Tampon ( For eg: If you have choose Light plan ( 10sanitary suppiles) in step 1 then here in the 4th step you can select 5pads and 5tampons  OR 4 Pads ,2pantyliners and 4tampons and so on.)

Step 5- Choose Delivery Date

Thats it. Now sit back and relax and wait for your box 🙂

Note- Now let me tell you that the prices of the box is excluding the price of sanitary supplies.
For eg – If you want the duchess box for 1month you have to pay 150rs + price of sanitary supply plan  you choose ( 99, 149, 199)

—>So now if you are choosing Light plan (10 sanitary supplies for 99rs) and the duchess coffer for 1month subscription then you have to pay 150rs + 99rs = 249rs

Just mentioning all this so that you dont get confused 🙂
The box is totally worth subscribing. You get more and pay less.

I am reviewing the Duchess coffer and the princess coffer in my next blog post. So stay tuned for that 🙂

Whats More ??? (Apart from the box)
From ThinkFrill You can buy body products, beauty and grooming supplies from internationally recognized brands be it Maybelline or Urban Decay from the store. They also offer a wide selection of body products and grooming supplies for men including beard oils, shaving supplies, hair products and fragrances.

Sand For Soapaholics ‘UNDER THE SEA’ liquid shampoo Review

Hello Readers, today i am reviewing a  Natural hair care product from a brand called Sand For Soapaholics. A week ago the brand sent me a liquid shampoo called ‘under the sea’. I was so excited to use the shampoo when it arrived.
Let me tell you that Sand for Soapaholics products are natural & made from skin friendly ingredients. So when i got the shampoo i couldn’t wait to try it. I love using Natural products.

image

The shampoo comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap. It is purple in colour and has a medium consistency. It smells of rosemary essential oil. I totally love the fragrance of this shampoo. It looks Delicious and smells so good that i am tempted to taste it. Suitable for all hair types this shampoo is priced at 348Rs for 60gms which is quite expensive. It has a shelf of 6 months from date of packing.

Ingredients Every 10gm contains Irish Moss Infusion (Chondrus crispus) (50.01%), Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (9.16%), Aloe vera Leaf Gel (8.62%), Vegetable Glycerine (4.31%), Silk Protein (1.72%), Fragrance (1.72%), Ess.Oil of Rosemary Aerial part (Rosmarinus officinalis) (1.03%), Oil of Castor Seed (Ricinus communis) (0.86%), Phenoxyethanol (0.52%), Benzyl Alcohol (0.52%), Colour (0.52%) –

My Experience i oiled my hair at night and decided to wash the next morning using this shampoo. I have long hair so first i massaged a little amount of the product into my scalp but it did not lather at all. I took a little more but still it did not form the needed lather. In this process i emptied nearly half of the shampoo bottle. I was yet to clean my strands. I know natural products lather less but this shampoo did not form even a slightest lather. So it did not completely get my hair rid of oil and dirt. I think i will need the entire 60gm bottle for a one time wash to make it work on my hair. But obviously nobody is going to do that given that the shampoo is so expensive. Since it did not lather much i just used it on my scalp and washed the rest of my hair with other shampoo. Apart from this what i liked is it made my hair soft and the fragrance remains locked in the hair for a good 4-5 hours. The product is not bad its just that it doesn’t lathers and hence large amount needs to be used.

Pros
Natural
Rich fragrance
Suitable for all hair types
Makes hair soft
Fragrance remains locked in the hair for 4-5 hours

Cons
Expensive
Doesn’t lathers
Very huge amount needs to be used

Final Words If your hair isn’t much dirty and oily then you can use this shampoo. People with short hair may love it.

Will i Purchase this? Well not really. Given that it is so expensive and doesn’t lathers.

Eyova Hair Nutrient With Egg Oil Review

We all know that eggs are considered as an effective treatment for hair problems. But many of us may hesitate to use egg directly on our hair because of how uncomfortable it may be and the smell ofcourse. But with Eyova you can easily get the goodness of eggs in “oil new avatar”. Reap the benefits of egg with Eyova, a natural egg oil for hair.If you are looking for an organic and effective solution for all your hair woes, Eyova Egg Oil is the way for you

image

What is Eyova? Eyova is a hair nutrient with Egg oil as its active component. This oil is derived from the yolk of chicken eggs and contains bioactives that heal and strengthen your hair naturally. Read more about Eyova HERE

About the Product- The oil comes in a plastic bottle with a flip cap. It is yellow in colour and has a medium consistency. Its not sticky at all and has a silky texture. It doesnt smells of eggs but i really dont like the smell. But the smell is not that bad. Priced at 590Rs for 50ml. It contains oleova, canola oil , fragrance. It helps fight hair problems like hair greying, hair loss, dandruff & dry scalp, hair damage.

Directions of use: Massage Eyova on your scalp and ensure it spreads evenly. Leave it on for 3 hours minimum or preferably overnight. Wash it off with any regular shampoo. Use it regularly, at least twice a week, for desired results.

My Experience: i have been using this oil for 2 weeks now. I use it twice a week at night. The oil is not at all oily and sticky. It gets easily absorbed into the hair. I usually apply at night and then wash my hair the next morning. My hair feels so soft and smooth. I have started loving my hair a little more. I cant really comment on the hair greying thing. But it does helps with damaged and dry hair. It works really well on my dry hair. You can see the results within two weeks. I also apply the oil on my hair roots sometimes but the oil being this expensive one cant really use it on the entire hair. Because you may end up finishing the 50ml bottle in just less than a month. The product though is really good and i totally recommend it. If used for long this oil will surely give positive results.

That’s all. If you have any queries please feel free to comment below 🙂 Thanks for reading. Hope you find my review helpful:)
