Being a blogger, trying new products is a neverending journey. Even after 7 years of being a beauty blogger, I still get excited to try new brands and new products. It’s not only helpful for my readers but also very enriching for me as well. Recently, I tried a few products from a brand called Ethicare Remedies available on Emegamart.com. This brand is completely new to me and the products are also one of their own kind. You’ll eventually get to know how. Today, I am going to review the first product that I started using, i.e. the Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash.

How to Use Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash

Wet your face and apply a pea-size amount of the facewash on to the skin and neck. Massage in an upward circular motion. Wash off with cold water followed by a light moisturizer. For best results use twice or thrice a day regularly.

Ingredients

Key Ingredients:

Glycolic Acid (2%), Salicylic Acid (0.50%), Liquorice Extract (1 %), Tea tree Oil (0.50%), Aloe Vera (2 %)

Full list:

Carbomer, Glycerine, Sodium Lauryl Ether, Coco Amino Propyl Betain, D-Panthenol, Triclosan, Sodium hydroxide.

Packaging

Cutishine Anti-acne face wash comes in a golden coloured plastic tub with a flip open cap. The tube comes placed in a colour-coordinated cardboard box. The cap closes tightly and is absolutely spill-proof. The sleek packaging makes the product safe for travelling. A part of the tube is transparent so that you can keep a tab on how much product you are left with and it also adds to the aesthetics.

Texture & Smell

Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of Cutishine Anti-acne face wash is like that of a gel and the consistency is quite runny. The face wash is transparent and has no colour whatsoever. It contains tiny white and golden beads in it which help in gently exfoliate the skin while cleaning it.

The smell is quite like an aftershave or a gent’s EDT. The smell isn’t something I am really fond of. I find it a bit strong for my liking. I love skincare products that are mildly scented.

My Experience with Ethicare Remedies Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash

Cutishine Anti-acne Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies Review | Cherry On Top

Having been suffering from occasional acne (mainly hormonal) and ‘blessed‘ with oily skin, I never stop searching for that perfect wash for my skin. I have been using this face wash for the past few weeks and I think this is something I definitely should continue using this.

When I started using this face wash, I did not have any active acne. So, I cannot tell you if this removes pimple or not but it certainly helped me keep the occasional pimples at bay. It delayed the arrival of the pimples and as I continued using this, it completely stopped them from appearing.

But, acne is not the main skin concern that I have, it’s the oiliness that bothers me more than the occasional pimples and this face wash has effectively taken care of that. It removes any traces of the excessive sebum that my skin produces during the night and gets accumulated mainly around my nose. Also, the tiny beads in the product help gently exfoliate the skin, unclogging the pores. These beads are not at all harsh on the skin thus could be used on a daily basis.

Despite removing all the extra oil from your face, this product does not dry out your skin or make it stretchy at all. Both Tea tree oil and Salicylic acid work wonders for the acne, tea tree oil is also a great anti-oxidant that fights free radicals. Glycolic acid and Salicylic acid are gentle exfoliants that remove any dead cells from the skin without being abrasive on the skin. Liquorice helps brighten the skin giving it a radiant look. Glycerine and D-Panthenol are great humectants that help moisturize the skin without making it oily. Aloe vera helps the skin soothe and adds a bit of moisture too. Overall, the ingredients list is quite impressive which makes the product totally safe to use.

Despite being engineered for oily, acne-prone skin, it’s suitable for all skin types.

Which anti-acne face wash can you swear by?

Growing up, most of us have secretly prayed for a pill to get glowing skin, haven’t we? (Don’t get me wrong, I am just talking hypothetically here). Having tried the Glowing skin gummies by Within Nutrition, I felt that my prayers have been answered. I have seen people raving about multivitamin gummies for skin or hair but I never paid heed to those. When I was approached by Within Nutrition to try their glowing skin gummies, I was both sceptical and interested to try them for the first time. Today, in this post, I will share my experience with you.

Within Glowing Skin Gummies Review | Cherry On Top

Packaging-

Although I was familiar with the concept of gummy nutrition, I did not have any experience with any. So, I did not know what exactly to expect and how long it might take for the results to show up. All I knew was I have to take 2 gummies daily for 21 days as the number of gummies in one pack is 42. 

These gummies come in a plastic-free jar and that consists 42 gummies in toffee-like packaging. What I liked the most is that each gum is individually packed so if you are out for a day, you don’t need to carry the whole jar. You can carry as many as you want to.

Ingredients- 

The one thing that made me interested to try their product is this wonderful ingredient list. I am writing all of them down with their benefits-

Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is found naturally in our skin that retains water and helps keep it hydrated. It instantly reduces fine lines and makes the skin look dewy.

Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn improves the overall skin health, promotes skin hydration, increases collagen level to boost skin elasticity and firmness and fight inflammation and acne breakouts.

Zinc

Zinc fights acne and prevents any future breakout. It also works as a great antioxidant.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great source of antioxidants with the power to combat free radicals that cause damage to the skin cells. It naturally helps in the skin regeneration process. It helps lighten hyperpigmentation or any dark spots. Vitamin C evens out skin tone, boosts radiance and gives your skin an overall brightened look with regular use.

Vitamin E

Vitamin E fight against any damage occurred to your skin cells due to pollution or UV rays. Also, prevents the signs of ageing. 

Vitamin A

Vitamin A tightens the skin naturally. It helps to hydrate the skin- giving it a naturally radiant and glowy look.

Benefits-

  • Fights Pollution & Prevent Acne
  • Hydrates & Maintains Glow
  • Reduces Blemishes

My Experience with Within Glowing Skin gummies

To be very honest, when I started with these gummies, I wasn’t really sure if this is actually going to be beneficial for me. Yes, I was sceptical. On the initial days, I did not find any significant change in the appearance on my skin. Honestly, it felt a little disappointing. But, I am so glad I did not give up on those. I kept having two gummies a day for about 15 days without missing. That is when the actual difference showed up and it was worth the wait. 

I started to notice a subtle glow on my cheek area and other high points of my face. Now that I am writing this, I realise, the glow started to occur in the starting days itself but it was so subtle that it was not perceivable enough. Anyway, I continued to have two gummies a day and that made the results to show through even better. So far, I have noticed a really nice radiant glow on my skin but I did not see any reduction of the sunspots or the pimple marks that I have on my skin.

Packed with multiple nutrients, these gummies are not only great to have glowing skin, but it’s also beneficial for your overall health.  They have a very mild yet distinct berry flavour and a delectable citrusy taste. These gummies are actually very succulent and yummy. 

The great thing about Within Glowing Skin Gummies is that they are free from any preservatives, all-natural and fssai approved which make them completely safe to consume. 

So, this was my review of the Within Glowing Skin Gummies. It worked for me hence I recommend this to all of you. I want you all to read this review thoroughly to decide whether or not you would like to invest in this product.

With emerging awareness and growing interest in natural, chemical-free skincare products, people are more likely to read through the ingredients and research more before buying or using a skincare product. Earlier, it used to be based on endorsements, advertisements and the face of the brand. But, I am glad that it is finally happening. Today, I will talk about a brand that claims to bring you NO HARM SKINCARE and that is Lashika.

Lashika is a skincare brand, created in Canada and then brought to the Indian subcontinent. They chose Canada to create their products because “Canada is ranked 4th in research and quality Worldwide” (2012 survey). Their main objective was to give people a simplified skincare regime that can work perfectly on every skin throughout the year. In their own words,

“Our “No Harm” Skincare range provides protection to your skin all year round across all climatic conditions.”

What Makes Lashika A No Harm Skincare Brand?

Time has changed and people have become more conscious while choosing sustainable skincare products. Customers are not just happy with chemical-free products, they want more. That’s why Lashika has come up with the NO HARM SKINCARE range that targets that extra something. Theirs is a Pure, Natural, Heavy Metal Free, Dermatologically Tested, No Harm Skin Care range!

There are several factors that make Lashika a #NoHarmSkincare brand. Following are the factors-

Paraben-Free:

Parabens are one of the most common and one of the most dangerous preservatives used in the cosmetic world. Studies have shown, parabens cause so many health hazards and can lead to cancer as well. Lashika made sure to exclude paraben from their ingredients list making them safe for the skin.

Not tested on Animals:

Lashika understands that to become a truly no harm skincare brand, they have to consider the sufferings of animals as well as their customers. “To keep our conscience (and yours too) guilt-free, we have chosen not to test our products on animals.”

No Mineral Oils:

Mineral oils are odourless and colourless oil which generates from petroleum as a by-product. Most skincare brands use mineral oils in their products as it is lightweight and inexpensive. Lashika is not one of them. Mineral oils are harmful in so many ways. One of them is that they clog your pores causing major breakouts.

100% Natural Ingredients:

The ingredients that Lashika no harm skincare products contain are 100% natural. “To ensure the validity of our demands, we diligently test each product and then bring it to you. Our dermatologically tested products work well and make your skin healthy from within.”

Customer Demand:

“As people have started to understand the threat of harmful chemicals, they are leaning towards natural products. Indeed, most natural ingredients are less harmful than unnatural ones. Being a #noharmskincare brand, Lashika understands your fears. That is why we have used time-honoured natural elements that have been used to alleviate skin conditions for years.”

Nature-Friendly:

Since the products are all free from harsh and hazardous chemicals, they do less harm to the environments as compared to the ones that contain these type of chemicals.

A Simplified Skincare Regime using Lashika products

Now that we have learnt a lot about the #NoHarmSkincare range, I want to talk you through a very simple but essential skincare regime using their products. So, let’s start-

  1. Apple Cider Face Wash (₹325)-Lashika Apple Cider Face Wash | Cherry On Top
    Enriched in the goodness of apple cider vinegar, this face wash has an excellent anti-bacterial property that restores skin’s pH level, controls excess secretion of sebum and gives your skin a cleansed, refreshed look by removing dead cells.
  2. Almond and Walnut Scrub (₹445)-

Scrubbing your face at least twice a week is very important. It helps you get rid of the dead cells, open up the pores and basically makes your skin breath. This scrub is rich in almond, walnut, vitamin E and shea butter which, in combination, reduces dark spots and uneven skin tone, hydrates skin, prevents signs of ageing and restores skin elasticity.

  1. Lumiara- Saffron and Vit E Moisturizer (₹345 for 100ml)-

Lashika Lumiara Saffron and Vitamin E Daily Moisturizer | Cherry On Top

This product is a very unique combination of multiple powerful natural ingredients like kumkumadi oil, Paeonia Lactiflora flower extract, vitamin E, turmeric oil, almond oil, shea butter, aloe vera juice that work together to form a protective barrier against sun’s harmful rays while healing and rejuvenating your sensitive skin internally.
This daily moisturizer is made for all skin types and for all year round.

I hope you enjoyed learning about a brand that actually cares for your skin like you’d do. I loved sharing this with you. You can shop for Lashika products directly from their website (link in the first paragraph).

Since the season of dryness and roughness has come, I have started taking more care of my skin nowadays. My skincare essentially consists of three primary things, cleansing, toning and moisturizing. These are the three steps I never skip on. Another thing that is very important for me is a good exfoliator. I usually like to scrub my face twice a week but I feel these days that is not enough. So, I switched on to a more powerful exfoliant than my usual one. Today, I’ll be talking about my recent favourite Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub.

Price- ₹845 for 30g
Available on- Flipkart and Vanya Herbals Website

About Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub

Pomegranate Face Scrub is a deeply nourishing blend of pomegranate peel, orange peel, milk powder, and natural cane sugar. It uniquely formulated to resist acne and oxidation while gently exfoliating and hydrating skin.

Ingredients-

Pomegranate peel – Pomegranate peel is rich in antioxidants, Vitamins, minerals, that provides the necessary nutrition to the skin. It also works as a natural sunblock, astringent, anti-ageing agent, and UV protector.
Orange Peel- This citrus fruit contains vitamin C and acts as a natural astringent which helps you to fight with various skin problems.
Natural Cane Sugar – Naturally exfoliates dead skin and is said to fight against toxins and prevent ageing of the skin.

Mandarin oil – is added for good aroma to the scrub. It also adds to the cleansing & rejuvenating properties of the scrub.

Packaging-

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

The Anaarshine scrub comes in a metallic jar with a screw lid. The packaging is definitely not hygienic. You’ll have to use a wooden spatula to be safe. This, on the other hand, is completely spillproof and thus very travel-friendly.

How to Use-

Damp your face first. Take a dollop of the scrub, mix it with some rose water or plain water and apply by massaging it in a circular motion on the face and neck. Wash off with water and pat dry your face. It is recommended to use this scrub once or twice a week.

Texture & Consistency-

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of the scrub is quite granulated. The good thing is that the granules are very gentle on the skin. The consistency of it is very sticky and concentrated. It’s not a cream, nor a gel but it is quite comparable to the consistency of jaggery. It is not at all sticky on the face once you add water to it. It also does not make your skin greasy.

My Experience-

Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub Review | Cherry On Top

I am a fan of scrubs that are gritty but not harsh on the skin. Vanya Anaarshine Pomegranate Face Scrub is exactly how I like it to be. The scrub looks very gritty in the jar but when you apply it feels smooth and very gentle on the face. Being a very mild scrub, it can be used daily.

The product might seem quite expensive for the amount you get but it is in a highly concentrated form as mentioned earlier so you’ll need a very little amount to scrub you entire face a neck. You just need to dilute it with some water and you’ll get enough product to use at a time.

Using this scrub daily will bring some glow to your face and it will appear brighter. My final verdict is that Vanya Anaarshine scrub effectively scrubs off the dead cells on your facial skin and also it is hydrating, it does not cause stretchy or irritated skin.

Have you used anything from Vanya Herbals yet? What are your thoughts?

Hi, guys! Hope you all are doing great. It’s been long since I have posted anything about my recent skincare discoveries and that is not okay as I have always shared my new finds with you. Today, I’ll be talking about the Nature Sure Olive Oil and the countless olive oil benefits for skin and hair. Recently, I have started adding different oils to my skincare and haircare regime and I feel it is one of the best changes I have ever made in my life. Olive oil is one of the first oils to be introduced to my routines. I am going to tell you what to expect from olive oil and how it has benefitted me.

Olive Oil is a plant-based oil, derived from olives thus it is completely vegan. It is mostly and popularly used in cooking and as salad dressings and is considered the most nutritional and healthy oil, but it has various other benefits too.

Olive Oil for Skin

There are various proven skin benefits of olive oil and today I’ll be talking about those that have worked magic for me.

Moisturizes Skin-

Olive oil can be used as a great moisturizer for dry skin. If you have dry facial skin and body, massage olive oil before going to sleep or before you take shower. Wash with lukewarm water and apply moisturizer. I was suffering from severe dry patches around my mouth and using Nature Sure Rogan Jaitun Tel religiously for a couple of weeks helped me cure those. It does not only moisturizes your skin but also gives a healthy glow to it. It also gently exfoliates the skin by removing dead skin cells.

Anti-ageing Benefits-

Olive oil is rich in various antioxidants and Vitamin E which protects the skin by limiting the production of free radicals and that eventually delays skin ageing.

Acts as Makeup Remover-

Oils are the most amazing makeup remover. I have recently discovered my love for olive oil and coconut oil when it comes to makeup removers. Earlier, I used to freak out thinking about applying oil to my face but I now have realised that it is very easy to completely wash off the oil from your face post-application. Oils, especially olive and coconut removes waterproof makeup very effectively without irritating your skin or your eyes. After you are done with removing your makeup, you can either wash your face with a mild cleanser or you can use a cloth soaked in warm water to gently give your skin a rinse. The former is for oily/combination skin people and the latter is for dry skin girls.

Olive Oil for Hair

Olive oil is great for your hair as well. It can be used in many ways to benefit your hair and scalp.

Anti-dandruff-

You can use olive oil to get rid of your dandruff and itchy scalp. A massage with olive oil mixed with some lemon juice can keep dandruff at bay and also it will clear out existing dandruff. You can do this twice a week if you have severe and recurring dandruff issue.

Smooth Hair-

Olive oil can be used as a base for different hair masks and it can also be used on its own. A regular massage with olive oil will promote hair growth, will make the hair smooth and soft and at the same time, it will add shine to the hair. Vitamin E in olive oil boosts healthy hair growth.

Disclaimer- The brand was kind enough to send the product to me in exchange for an honest review.

Hello, beauties! Today, I am back with another review. You know how much I love taking care of my skin. I think it’s more like an investment than just a routine. A few months back, I got to try two products from an all-natural, Indian ayurvedic skin and hair care brand called Amrutam. One of them was a hair care product (which I’ll review very soon) and the other was a skincare product called Amrutam Face Clean-Up which is what I am going to review in this post.

Price- ₹1,199 (Buy here)

Packaging-

Amrutam DIY Face Clean-up comes in a plastic bottle with a metal screw cap and with a plastic stopper cork to prevent spillage. The packaging is very sturdy and convenient to carry when you are travelling. I wish they had included a pump dispenser for easier use.

Product Description-

This product is a do-it-yourself face and skin repair. It can also be called an at-home clean-up that deep cleanses your pores by extracting dirt from the skin and rejuvenates it from within. It has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties which help in acne prevention and dark spots.

How to use:

Place a small amount of Face Clean-Up in your hands. Massage into skin in a circular motion with fingers to get all areas. Leave on for 20 minutes for deep pore cleansing. Wash with warm water and pat dry. Enjoy soft, balanced skin!

Usage:

2-3 times a week.

Amrutam Face Clean-Up Review | Cherry On Top

Amrutam Face Clean-Up Review | Cherry On Top

Ingredients:

Badam (Prunus amygdalus – Fruit) 2 gm, Ghrit Kumari (Aloebarbadensis – leaf) 1 gm, Khus khus (Cannabis Indica -Fruit) 1 gm, Chironji (Buchanania Lanzan – Fruit) 1 gm, Kesar (Crocus sativus – style & stigma) 500mg, Yashad Bhasam (Ayurvedic classical medicine -A.F.I.)  5 gm, Haldi Powder (Curcuma long – Root) 1 gm, Chandan Powder (Santalum album – Stem) 1 gm, Natural Preservative 300mg, Water Base Q.S, Fragrance Q.S

Almond helps in the anti-ageing process as they contain Vitamin E and other antioxidants in them. They help in eliminating the harmful free radicals from our body and help our skin maintain its young lustre and glow. 

Aloe Vera is a wonder plant for our skin and overall health as well. It is beneficial in the treatment of acne, moisturizing the skin and act as an anti-ageing agent for our skin.

Poppy seeds or Khus Khus will help with achieving clear skin, treatment of eczema and inflammation and they also work as a wonderful moisturizer.

Chironji with its rich vitamins and minerals is very important for healthy skin. It’s highly effective in the treatment of acne and pimples as well.

Kesar is a luxurious ingredient we add in Amrutam Face Clean Up, because of its numerous benefits for your skin. Saffron has been used anciently by Romans and Egyptians as well as a healing agent, it is told that Cleopatra used to use Kesar in her baths because of its cosmetic properties. It helps in the treatment of dry skin, improves skin texture, tones your skin, treats acne and dull skin and also helps in skin lightening.

Yashad Bhasma is an ancient ayurvedic bhasma formulated with aloe vera and zinc oxide, it is highly beneficial in the treatment of acne, pimples and scars.

Product Texture-

Amrutam Face Clean-Up Review | Cherry On Top

The texture of Amrutam Face Clean-Up is very runny, slurpy texture. I think the aloe vera in it makes it a little slurry and viscid. The liquidity of the products helps in spreading the product all across the face very easily.

My Experience with Amrutam Face Clean-Up

I know how happy my skin feels when it is treated with natural ingredients. That’s why I always prefer playing around with natural skincare products. When it comes to Ayurveda, I have not tried too many brands but those I’ve used has left me satisfied. So, when I got the chance to try out Amrutam Face Clean-up, I did not hesitate to say yes to the collaboration because from my past experiences, I have a huge trust in Ayurvedic products.

Before starting with the review, let me tell you what was my skin condition before I started using this product. I started using it in January. Usually, my skin is very dry and dull during winters. I also had an issue of roughness on the skin due to the lack of moisture. I did not have a breakout issue or pigmentation or scarring.

After the very first use, the roughness of my skin was 98% gone and it felt so smooth on touching which was so unusual for my skin during winter. It did not make my skin dry or dehydrated after the whole procedure, instead, it added balanced moisture to the face. It also eliminated the dullness to quite an extent and added a healthy glow.

Amrutam Face Clean-Up Review | Cherry On Top

I have used this even during summers and it did not break me out or made my skin oilier (because I have combination skin and my t-zone becomes super oily in summers.) Even in summer, this product has made my skin glow from within.

Disclaimer- The brand was kind enough to send the product to me in exchange for an honest review.

Being a beauty blogger, I am always in search of new products to try out. For me, skincare has always been way more essential than makeup. I might now pick up the hottest lipstick or highlighter, but I’m always eager to explore new skincare launches. So, when I saw Nykaa came up with its own Korean sheet masks- Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask with some desi ingredients, I cannot hold my excitement. There was a two-for-two offer going on pre-ordering the sheets, so I got four of them. I am going to review the Gooseberry + Papaya for Nourished + Brightened Skin sheet mask today.

Being a beauty blogger, I am always looking for new skincare and makeup products to try and review on my blog for my readers. Recently, it has been 80% skincare and 20% makeup which I am really enjoying because as they say, the more flawless the canvas the prettier the painting (Ahem, I just invented it). Anyway, recently I saw some very interesting stuff launched by Nykaa. They launched their very own Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Masks. The sheet masks weren’t the interesting part but their desi ingredients were. I love how they have merged India and Korea in such a fancy way. All the ingredients used in these sheet masks are 100% originated from India and made to target specific skin concerns. Today, I am reviewing two of their 11 variants- Gooseberry+Papaya and Pear+Hyaluronic Acid

Price– ₹ 100 (Buy here)

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask range is powered with two hero ingredients in each mask. They have launched a collection of total 11 sheet masks focusing on Indian skin and their problems.

Product Description

Carefully chosen, we bring you 11 variants that are specially made to target all your skin concerns. Tucked away in our grandma’s diaries, these ingredients are humble yet potent. Passed on from generations to generations, they have never ceased to mark their vitality even in the modern world. Now, we have brought to you the most-precious beauty secrets in the form of our Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet masks.

Why Nykaa Skin Secrets sheet mask?

  • Dual ingredients for dual benefits.
  • Exquisite Indian origin ingredients for maximum benefits.
  • Each variant caters directly to all targeted skin concerns.
  • Benefit-driven to ease the consumer purchase.

How to Use-

Unfold and lay over on clean and toned skin. Relax for 10-15 minutes. Remove the mask and gently pat the excess serum onto your skin, until fully absorbed. Massage for good blood circulation that results in a healthy glow.

My Experience with Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Range-

Now, let me tell you what I honestly feel about this particular range of sheet masks.

Packaging- The packaging is very nicely and meticulously done. An image of the key ingredients of the corresponding masks is printed on the packaging itself. Also, the name of the ingredients and the effects of the mask is also written boldly on the pack. So, the user is completely aware of what they are putting on their face and there is no room for confusions.

Fitting- The fitting of these sheets masks is what makes it my favourite. The holes are made keeping Indian face shapes in mind. A difficulty that I face with most of the Korean sheet masks is that the holes for the eyes are not wide enough to fit me. But Nykaa’s sheet masks have bigger eye holes so that they fit people with bigger eyes.

Consistency of the Serum/Essence- I have never used a sheet mask before that doesn’t come with a thick, hard-to-absorb serum/essence. My experience with Nykaa Sheet Masks was outstanding because the Nykaa face sheet masks are soaked in a serum that is very lightweight and absorbs quickly into the skin. The essence does not make my skin oily, it just adds the right amount of moisture.

The 11 variants of the Nykaa Face Sheet Masks are-

  1. Gooseberry + Papaya (for Nourished + Brightened skin)
  2. Almond + Yogurt (for Revitalized + Nourished skin)
  3. Tea Tree + Aloe Vera (for Clear + Moisturized skin)
  4. Black Mud + Aloe Vera (for Purified + Hydrated skin)
  5. Rice + Camelia (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  6. Rose + Goat Milk (for Nourished + Radiant skin)
  7. Lemon + Honey (for Lightened + Glowing skin)
  8. Avocado + Moringa (for Nourished + Hydrated skin)
  9. Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid (for Firm + Brightened skin)
  10. Charcoal + Bamboo (for Purified + Nourished skin)
  11. Turmeric + Coconut (for Revitalized + Radiant skin)

I bought 4 from the list- #1, #7, #9 and #11. I will review #1 Gooseberry + Papaya Face Sheet Mask and #9 Pearl + Hyaluronic Acid Sheet Mask today.

Benefits of Gooseberry- Gooseberry, popularly known as Amla in India, removes tan and lightens blemishes and acne scars.
Benefits of Papaya- Provides three-layer deep skin nourishment and a long-lasting glow.

Ingredients-

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Xanthan Gum, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Phyllanthus Emblica Fruit Extract (1,000 ppm), Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Ethylhexylglycerin, Carica Papaya (Papaya) Fruit Extract (100 ppm), Sodium Hyaluronate, Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

Efficacy-

From my childhood, I have been told numerous benefits of natural ingredients by my mother. She is all about DIYs. I remember she used to make a papaya mask for face and an amla concoction for the hair. I have seen papaya doing wonders for my face. It adds a healthy, natural glow to your face instantly.

I think this particular mask is very average when it comes to the results. I have not seen any visible or drastic change in my skin except for it made it really nourished and clean in a way. I have not seen any of my spots getting faded or skin clarity. Maybe with regular use, it can work on that front.

Benefits of Pearl- Reduces melanin production to give fairer radiant skin.

Benefits of Hyaluronic Acid- Holds in hydration to increase the elasticity giving a firmer and younger-looking skin.

Ingredients-

Water, Glycerin, Dipropylene Glycol, Alcohol, Betaine, Butylene Glycol, Paeonia Suffruticosa Root Extract, Centella Asiatica Extract, 1,2-Hexanediol, Chamomilla Recutita (Matricaria) Flower Extract, Glyceryl Caprylate, Sodium Hyaluronate (25ppm), Ethylhexyglycerin, Xanthan Gum, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Pearl Extract (50 ppm), Disodium EDTA, Fragrance.

Efficacy-

Nykaa Skin Secrets Face Sheet Mask Pearl+Hyaluronic Acid does what it claims. I could feel my skin a bit firmer after the use. It might not make you fairer (because you know that’s not possible!) but definitely would brighten up your face a lot. The serum penetrates into the skin very quickly giving it the proper amount of hydration. This mask is a great option to get an instant pick-me-up before any party or occasion.


Overall, I loved both the masks for the instant glow that they provide. These masks are nothing extraordinary so don’t expect them to completely change your skincare game. These are only for ₹100 thus you can definitely give these a shot. There is a ‘buy 5 get 3 free‘ offer going on on these right now. So, it could be a great opportunity to stock them up or give them a try.

Come summers and we all get the tan that not only makes our skin look few shades darker but also causes side effects like uneven skin tone, acne, dark spots, dry skin and signs of premature aging. The idea is to not only keep your skin protected from the harmful sun rays but also going the extra mile by pampering your skin with home remedies that will not only help you get rid of the problems mentioned before but also give you glowing skin and bright complexion.

Wondering how to remove tan the easy way? Here are few beauty tips you can follow and easily try at home using everyday ingredients from your kitchen.

1) Aloe Vera & Lemon Juice Mask

Both aloe vera and lemon juice work wonders when it comes to reducing the effects of tanning on the skin. Aloe is a soothing agent that helps in fighting melanin that darkens the skin cells. Lemon juice, on the other hand, works like an astringent, cleaning the skin from inside thus giving a radiant look on the outside.

My Experience with Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap

Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap review, price

My body feels very, very dry during winters so, I need to choose my bath products really wisely. Recently, I got to try the African Cocoa Butter Soap from the brand called Imiana House. I have been loving this soap lately. Here are the reasons for that-

Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap is free of chemicals, artificial fragrance and synthetic colours. It is made of 100% natural and pure essential oils which is a big YAY for me! It’s introduced as a luxurious handmade soap in their website and the packaging does justice to it. The black paper packaging with a red seal gives it a very luxurious look with minimalism.

Imiana House African Cocoa Butter Soap is a dark brown coloured product with white marble effects on it. When I first sniffed it, it smelt like spices. I expected the aroma to be of chocolates but it wasn’t. The fragrance is very mild as they do not use any artificial scents. This soap is not something that will fill your bathroom with some exquisite aroma.

The soap lathers up really well. It cleanses your skin deeply yet it doesn’t dry it out. It is suitable for any skin type. The soap lasts for a good amount of time. You can even cut the soap in half, use one half and stock the other. The size of the soap is pretty big.

The only downside, I think, is the price of the product. I understand that they are made of exotic, pure and natural ingredients but it is quite a big amount.

These soaps come in a variety. Check out their website for more.

Have you ever tried this soap?
