Review : Nature’s Essence Gold Illuminating Face Wash!

Hey there!

Radiant skin is everyone’s desire. Recently, when I came across a budget friendly Indian brand that promised radiant looking skin, I went for it. I haven’t really heard of this brand before but the little tube looked quite nice, with a honeycomb design on it.

Gold1

The face wash is honey colored, with small golden sparkles in it. It has a medium thick consistency that is still easily spreadable on the face. It’s main ingredients are honey, golden dust & Vitamin E. The rest of the ingredients aren’t listed, unfortunately. Underneath the brand name on the tube, it’s written ‘Aromatherapy Beauty Solutions’. However, there is nothing special about it’s scent. It’s a light smell. A little goes a long way and thus this little tube containing 60 ml will last you a good 1.5 months. The amount shown in the pic below could be used to wash your face & neck twice..

Gold2

I quite like it. It does leave your skin feeling youthful, radiant and soft. The gold dust doesn’t leave any shimmer on the skin. Even though it says on the package that it is for all skin types, I would advice those with very dry skin to stay away from it. Being a person with normal/dry skin, I find the end result to be perfect but for those with very dry skin, this face wash could leave your skin feeling squeaky clean yet dry.

Overall, I would definitely buy it again and I recommend you check it out too.

Price : Rs. 60 (AED 3.32) for a tube containing 60ml.

I bought it from Navaratna Hypermarket, Moonnupeediga, Kerala.

Review : Banjara’s Hibiscus Hair Care Powder!

Hey!

I am very much into haircare right now. I am searching for & trying new hair products, to give maximum support and care for my hair. That’s how I found out about Banjara’s Hibiscus powder. Hibiscus flowers are pretty known for their power to promote hair growth. Actually one can even make use of the hibiscus flowers growing in their gardens to make a DIY hair mask. There are tons of tutorials on how to do that, on YouTube. I don’t have hibiscus flowers at my home though and on my recent trip to the shopping mall, I found this pack which I thought would be great to try out. Hibiscus is effective in combating hair loss, dandruff and scalp irritation. It is also used as a remedy for premature greying. The herb acts as a good conditioner and moisturizer for the hair – making it soft and shiny.

The pack comes with 5 sachets in them. Each of these packs contain 20 gms and it’s packed in such a way for easy usage. For each application, you can open one sachet and use it’s complete contents. I have seen bulk packs of this powder long before. In such cases, you need to transfer the powder into an airtight container so that it doesn’t solidify into little blocks over time. Banjara’s easy packaging helps to avoid this inconvenience.

The hibiscus powder is brick red in color. I have long hair now (just above my hips) and 20 gms is enough to cover my scalp and hair. If you have short hair, a sachet is good for 2 applications and if you have very thick hair, you might need to use 2 sachets each time. Though my hair is long, it’s fine in texture.

To use this, simply transfer a sachet’s content into a bowl and add just enough water to make it into a thick paste (or a level of consistency you personally like). The paste is a dark colored one. Apply it to your hair for 20 minutes (that’s the instruction on the packaging) and rinse off with water. I usually apply it for 40 mins. It’s herbal and putting it on for extra time won’t hurt. I don’t use shampoo while washing it off. Also, while applying it, part your hair section by section and apply it. This way you will cover your hair and scalp completely. Though the package suggests using it thrice a week, I been using it twice a week only. It has a light, natural smell that stays on lightly on the hair for a few hours.

I have completed one entire pack now (five applications). One of the main results I noticed after using this is that my hair is more black in color and has a glossy shine to it. Overall, I am in love with this and I am sure to check out the other hair care powders by Banjara’s.

Price : Rs. 90 (AED 5.07) for 100 gms.

I bought this from Navaratna Hypermarket, Moonnupeediga, Kerala. This product can be found in any leading supermarkets.

Review : Pond’s Silk Cream!

Hey guys!

I recently got to try Pond’s Silk cream, which is one of Pond’s latest creams. The cream contains silk extracts and that’s why it’s called Silk Cream. Frankly speaking, I am more of an Olay girl and not a Pond’s fan. Most of their day creams that I have tried have left my skin either looking oily or whitish tinted. That being said, I would like to reinstate the fact that I am a crazy huge fan of Pond’s Intensive Cell ReGEN™ Super Serum. It works like a dream & no other serum even comes close to it!.

Pond'sSilk1

Onto the review of the Silk cream, the first thing that attracted me to it was the fact that it said on the packaging that it delivers 24 hr moisture and is a light non-greasy formula. I am very much into non-greasy formulas, that leave the skin looking supple and youthful. Another thing that was it’s size. It’s comes in a small, cute & handy container that contains only 29 gms, which is perfect for a trial.

Pond'sSilk2

The cream has a medium consistency and is white in color. It gets readily absorbed into the skin. A little doesn’t go a long way in this cream’s case. You need a good scoop to get full coverage of your face & neck. This tub should last about 15 to 20 days, depending on your usage. It has a very pleasant smell that lingers on mildly on the skin for a short while.

This Pond’s day cream lives upto it’s promises. It delivers silky, smooth skin that is supple & youthful. It’s my first time being a fan of a Pond’s day cream. If you are already a fan of Pond’s or you would like to give a Pond’s cream a trial, I highly recommend the Silk cream. As for the 24 hr moisture claim, I didn’t test that part out. I did wear it for about 10 hours with nothing else on my skin and it still stayed the same – looking soft & nourished.

Price : Rs. 50 (AED 2.88!) for a tub containing 29 gms.

I bought it from Navaratna hypermarket, in Moonnupeediga, Kerala.
