Packaging- Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash comes in a bright green transparent plastic tube with flip open cap. The packaging is very simple, easy to handle and travel-friendly. You need to squeeze the tube in order to dispense the product out.

My Experience with Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash

I love neem-based face washes a lot. I feel they cleanse the face from within and give me a glowing healthy skin. I have been using this Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash for more than a week and I feel I have noticed a few differences in my skin after I started using it. Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash has the benefits of Neem, Aloe Vera, Basil and Lemon. Neem soothes irritation and prevents acne. It is rich in antioxidants. Aloe Vera is a natural moisturiser, it works to alleviate the effects of UV radiation, hydrates and softens the skin. Basil has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties that purify the skin. Lemon is a natural source of Vitamin C, it clears and tones the skin.

This face wash leaves my skin clean and soft every time I use it. It makes the skin soft and supple and adds a healthy glow to it. It effectively removes sebum and impurities from the face and makes it look and feel fresh. Astaberry Neem & Aloe Face Wash is for all skin types.

I am quite happy with the results considering the price of the product. It can be termed as a good face wash within budget. I would recommend you guys to try it out.

The only thing I didn’t like is the long list of chemicals used in it.

Hi, guys! Hope you are doing well in hot and humid weather. Today, I’ll be reviewing another skincare product from Organic Harvest. You might have read my review on their Masseuscious Damage Control Face Wash. I have fallen in love with their products since then. So now, when they wanted me to try the new Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk, I readily accepted! I have been using this product for a few weeks now and I am all set to share my review with you. Let’s start-

Price- Rs 1195/- for 100ml (Buy here)

Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin Review & Price | Cherry On Top

Packaging- The product comes in a bottle form with a pump dispenser that has a transparent plastic cap. The packaging is sturdy but it isn’t as travel-friendly as I would like it to be. The bottle is quite heavy and I don’t think it’a convenient enough to carry a heavy bottle along.

Key Ingredients- Aqua, Certified organic Decyl glycoside, Provitamin B5, Propylene glycol, Sodium benzoate, Potassium sorbate and Perfume. No Color Added.

How to Use- “Wet your face. Apply the product to your face in a circular motion, making sure each spot gets covered with cleanser. Keep massaging in a circular motion for thirty seconds to a minute. Rinse thoroughly.”

How It Works- The richness of natural minerals and Provitamin B5 in this fortifying cleanser soothes the skin by removing excess oil without tightening or over drying.

My Experience with Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin

As I told you earlier, I have been using the Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for the past few weeks and I can tell you that I am impressed with it. I am too picky and choosy when it comes to skincare products but this product has successfully made a place in my heart (read skincare stash). The product says that it is meant for normal skin types but it works equally great for those who have combination skin. I have combination skin, my t-zone is nothing less than an oil-field during summers. This product works wonders on me.

I had a feeling that cream/lotion based cleansers will make me more 0ily but that’s not the case for this product. It applies as a lotion but when I rinse it off my face, there’s no trace of oil left on my skin. Instead, it gives my skin the perfect amount of hydration and suppleness.

Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk for Normal Skin Review & Price | Cherry On Top

This product removes makeup quite effectively. For makeup removal, I apply it on my face in circular motions, giving it enough time to break down all the makeup and then wipe it off my face using a damp cotton round. Then, I wash my face thoroughly with cold water. One thing I must tell you guys, don’t use it around your eye area. Once I tried to remove my eye makeup with it and it burnt my eyes like hell. Never ever do that!

The Organic Harvest Activ Cleansing Milk is free from parabens, mineral oils, animal products and alcohol. This product is very gentle on the skin. I would recommend this product to you if you have normal to combination skin and you want a cleanser that would get rid of all the makeup and impurities without dehydrating your skin.

Have you used anything from Organic Harvest?

Hi, guys! I am back again with yet another post for you. A lot of you got really excited when I shared a picture of the Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask that I bought from Nykaa during their Valentine’s Day sale. I have been using it since then and I am so impressed with it that I felt the need to share my thoughts with you guys. So, here I am sharing my review on the Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask.

Price- Rs 300 for 25g, Rs 550 for 50g ( Buy here)

Ingredients- Oatmeal, Organic rice flour, Prunus dulcis (Almond meal), Juglans regia (Walnut), Ocimum basilicum (Basil), Rosa (Rose), Lavandula (Lavender), Mentha (Peppermint), Fuller’s earth, Activated Carbon, Mentha piperita (Peppermint essential oil), Piper nigrum (Black pepper essential oil), Citrus bergamia (Bergamot essential oil), Melaleuca alternifolia (Tea tree essential oil), Juniperus communis (Juniper berry essential oil)

Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask Review | Cherry On Top

Packaging- Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask comes in a simple transparent plastic jar with a screw-open lid. A wooden spoon also comes along with the product. The label on the tub has all the information including ingredients, usage and effectiveness. I really like the simplicity of the packaging. It looks simple but definitely not cheap.

How to Use- Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask comes in a powder form. So, you need to make a paste out of it using either water or milk. I like to use it with organic rose water.

My Experience with Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask

Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree & Charcoal Face Mask Review | Cherry On Top

As I said earlier, I have been using this for the past few weeks. I use this pack twice a week and every time I use it I see visible results. I use rosewater to make a paste out of the powder. When the paste is made, you can see that it is a little crumbly. This is because of the finely milled oatmeal and almond. I apply the mask evenly on my face using a spatula and then let it dry until its semi-wet. Then, I just rub it on my face in circular motions and finally wash it off using lukewarm water. I finish it off by splashing cold water on my face.

The oatmeal and almond meal in this mask efficiently exfoliates the skin and removes blackheads. One of the two main ingredients, activated carbon, sucks out any dirt from the pores and unclog them. Another main ingredient is Tea tree oil which is really effective on acne. Its antibacterial property helps fight acne. Then there is peppermint which is great for oily skin as it controls the secretion of excessive sebum and prevents the pores from being clogged and causing acne. My skin is not acne-prone so I can’t tell you if this face pack really works on acne or not.

I would highly recommend this mask to you. The smaller size comes for Rs 300 only and you get the benefits of a scrub and a mask in one product. This is definitely a great value for money. This product is all-natural, contains no preservative and good for sensitive skin. Those who have oily or combination skin must try it out this summer. This controls excess oiliness without making the skin dry.

What’s your favourite face mask at this moment?

Winter is here and I am pretty sure most of you are dealing with various skin problems, be it major or minor. I am someone who has dry skin during winters and combination during the rest of the year. So, my skin concerns would most definitely be different from yours. Gladly, at this time of the year, Himalaya herbals has come up with their entire range of Winter Care that has products for all skin types. Isn’t it great? If you are following me on my social media platforms (do check them out and show some love) then you must have already seen the huge box of goodies that Himalaya had sent to me. Today, I’ll be sharing all the details of the Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range. So, are you ready? Let’s start-

Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range can be divided into three categories- skin care, body care and lip care. I’ll be discussing all three of them separately.

Skin Care

 

The skin care category has four products in total- Winter Defence Moisturizing Cream, Nourishing Skin Cream, Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream and Revitalizing Night Cream. The latter two are from their premium skincare range.

Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range| Cherry On Top

Winter Defence Moisturizing Cream

Price- Rs 125/- for 100ml, Rs 75/- for 50ml (Buy here)

What it does?

An effective blend of herbal extracts that moisturizes even the extremely dry areas of your skin, Himalaya Herbals Winter Defense Moisturizing Cream is enriched with Wheat Germ, a rich source of Natural Vitamin E that protects skin from environmental damage. Jojoba Oil and Almond Oil repair and deeply nourish dry skin, keeping it soft and supple even during the harshest, winter months.

My Views-

This cream is very hydrating but doesn’t feel or look greasy. It nourishes my skin and helps control the appearance of dry patches on my skin. It stays put for a long time.

Nourishing Skin Cream

Price- Rs 220/- for 200ml, Rs 125/- for 100ml, Rs 75/- for 50ml (Buy here)

What it does?

Himalaya’s Nourishing Skin Cream is a light, nongreasy, daily-use cream, which provides all day moisturizing, nourishment and protection.

The cream is blended with the extracts of Aloe Vera, Winter Cherry, Indian Kino Tree and Indian Pennywort, which protect your skin from pollution and dry weather, providing nourishment and moisture.

My Views-

This cream is a light-weight version of the Winter Defence Moisturizing Cream. It is has a fast absorbing, moisturizing and completely non-greasy formula that I love.

Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream

Price- Rs 250/- for 50g (Buy here)

What it does?

Himalaya’s Clear Complexion Whitening Day Cream gives a radiant glow and brighter skin tone. Our day cream is light and non-greasy, enriched with unique herbal extracts and CINNABLO™ to provide three effective actions:

  • Hydrates skin
  • Lightens skin tone
  • Clears complexion

The breakthrough herbal sunblock CINNABLO™ provides UV protection and prevents skin darkening.

My Views-

This is a part of my morning skincare routine now. I love how moisturizing it is on its own. You do not even require a separate moisturizing cream unless you have very dry skin. I don’t need any additional step to moisturize my skin when I’m using this.

Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range| Cherry On Top

Revitalizing Night Cream

Price- Rs 200/- for 50g (Buy here)

What it does?

Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night Cream is a deep-penetrating, luxurious cream that works overnight with the skin’s natural renewal cycle. The cream provides three essential benefits that make skin soft, supple and rejuvenated:

  • Renews skin cells
  • Hydrates skin
  • Repairs daily damage

My Views-

This cream is very light-weight, easily absorbs into the skin without making it greasy, very soothing and refreshing and has a soothing fragrance to it. It is currently an indivisible part of my night time skincare routine.

Body Care

The body care range consists of three body lotions, namely Nourishing Body Lotion, Soothing Body Lotion and Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion.

Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range| Cherry On Top

Nourishing Body Lotion

Price- Rs 80/- for 100ml, Rs 140/- for 200ml, Rs 250/- for 400ml (Buy here)

What it does?

Blended with all natural ingredients such as Aloe Vera and Winter Cherry, which are known for their intense hydrating properties, our body lotion deeply penetrates into the skin to moisturize it fully.

Soothing Body Lotion

What it does?

Our moisturizer is enriched with the goodness of Cocoa Butter and Wheat Germ Oil, which replenish the lost moisture in dry skin. Naturally derived ingredients restore skin’s elasticity, leaving it softer and more toned than before.

My Views on the Himalaya Herbals Winter Care body lotions-

All the three variants are very nourishing, penetrates deep into the skin, keeps the skin hydrated for a really long time. They might not feel very heavy on the skin but they make the skin look and feel healthy and moisturized. Among the three, the Cocoa Butter Intensive body lotion has a long-staying fragrance. All of them are non-greasy which is a great thing.

Lip Care

The lip care range contains two lip balms- Strawberry Shine Lip Care and Natural Soft Vanilla Lip Care.

Both the lip balms are extremely hydrating, the keep the lips well moisturized for hours (on my lips, they stay for approx 8 hours and survives drinks and light snacks). The Strawberry Shine lip balm has a slight hint of colour which won’t show on dark lips. I have a detailed review on all the lip balms from Himalaya Herbals. Check it out here.

Which one product from the Himalaya Herbals Winter Care Range you want to try first?

Disclaimer- Himalaya Herbals sent their entire Winter Care range for me to try and share an honest review with you all.

 

Hello, all!

I hope you have had a great Durga Puja and Navratri. Today, I am going to talk about a new cleanser that I have been using for the past couple of weeks. It is the Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser, which the brand has recently launched. Organic Harvest, a brand that can be relied on blindfolded for their exclusive recipes of skincare and haircare products, sent the product to me to use, review and share my experience with you. After using it for more than 15 days at a stretch, I think I am now able to let you know about this product. So, let’s jump into the review-

Price- Rs 1495/- for 150ml (5.07 FL. Oz)

Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser Review| Cherry On Top

Packaging- Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser comes in a plastic bottle with a label on it containing all the details about the product and the company. The main attraction of this product lies within its dispensing system. It comes with a brush with ultra soft and flexible silicone bristles that is attached to a pump. This is the part that makes the cleanser most interesting.

Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser Review| Cherry On Top

Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser Review| Cherry On Top

Ingredients- Aqua, Organic Acai berry extract, Organic Decyl glucoside, Organic cocoamphodiacetate, Olive oil, Liquid shea butter and fragrance.

How to Use- You have to pump it to dispense the product out of the bottle. The pump dispenses the product out through the brush-head in the form of foam. So, you don’t have to lather the product up within your palms, the entire thing is done for you. When you see the product getting out of the bottle through the brush-head, you have to apply it onto your face with the brush. It is recommended to use in upward strokes in circular motions.

My Experience with Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control Cleanser-

Ever since I received this product, I have been using it twice a day. It cleanses the face quite effectively without making it dry or stretchy. The shea butter and olive oil in it make sure your skin has the perfect balance of hydration even after washing it off. The brush that the product comes with is really helpful in order to get the cleanser work on your skin. It makes sure that the strokes are gentle and your skin is not irritated throughout the cleansing process. The silicone bristles are really soft on the skin so it does not trouble any existing acne on your face. This product works nicely on oily/combination skin, it is really effective in removing excessive oil from the face, leaving it oil-free for a long time.  I generally wake up with a greasy face every morning, but using this cleanser at night has made a difference. I don’t notice that much oiliness on my face when I wake up in the morning. Using this product in the morning helps me achieve a fresh look throughout the day. Although this cleanser works wonders in removing dirt and oiliness from your face, it barely does anything to reduce or remove acne. My face has been breaking out a lot lately so I can clearly tell that this cleanser has done nothing for my breakouts. I must use this for another couple of weeks and see if it prevents the appearance of acne or reduces the frequency. I will update you guys if anything like this happens.

Overall, I quite liked the Organic Harvest Masseuscious Damage Control cleanser. Being an Organic Harvest products, this cleanser has the benefit of plants so you don’t need to worry about the ingredients. The ingredients are 100% safe. The attached brush is an added benefit as it massages the product with the right amount of pressure as well as it gently exfoliates your skin while cleansing. I really liked the idea. The only thing bothered me is the price. I think it is a bit expensive for some. Other than that, I liked this product and I will recommend this to you guys.

Thanks for reading the entire review. If you liked then please do share it with your friends and family. I will be back with a new post soon. Till then be safe & keep smiling!

Disclaimer- Product sent by the brand in exchange for an honest review. 

If you are familiar with my preferences then you must have understood by now that I have a predilection for products that are made with all natural ingredients to use on my skin. Time and again, I have expressed my love for natural skincare products and I have also reviewed some of them. Recently (okay, it’s been over a month :/), I received a couple of products from Junaili which is a Nainital based skincare brand. Today, I am going to review those two products which are their Apricot Body Scrub and Oil.

Junaili, as I said is a Nainital based oil-pressery that uses 100% natural ingredients for their products. Their Apricot Body Scrubs and Oils are made of the finest apricots found in the Kumaon Himalayas. The products are totally safe for your body, they do not contain any chemicals, parabens and artificial fragrance. Their products are made in small batches to preserve quality. Now that we know about the brand, let’s jump into the review.

Junaili Apricot Body Scrub

Junaili Apricot Body Scrub| Cherry On Top

Price- 250INR for 125g

Packaging- The Junaili Apricot Scrub comes in a plastic jar packaging with a metallic (most probably, aluminium), golden screw lid. The jar is sturdy and the lid closes tightly, striking out any chance of spillage. Here is a little trivia about their labels, their labels are hand-written and then photographed and enhanced in photoshop. How cool is that!

Junaili Apricot Body Scrub| Cherry On Top

Junaili Apricot Body Scrub| Cherry On Top

My Experience- As I already have said, I have been using their products continuously ever since I receive them, that is for over a month now. I use this scrub every alternate day to exfoliate my body. I use this especially for my hands and legs because those are the areas that are mostly exposed and I need exfoliate them religiously to get a smooth skin. The scrub comes in a powder form. To make the scrub ready to apply, I take out about a tablespoon of product and mix it with plain water. You can definitely use rose water or milk according to your preferences. I use plain water because I am very lazy. I hop into the shower, take some product onto my palm, mix it with tap water and apply gently, in circular motions to my damp body.Ever since I have started using this product, my whole shower experience has changed. My skin feels soft and supple after every use. My hands and legs are really dry and this scrub doesn’t make them even drier.

Ever since I have started using this product, my whole shower experience has changed. My skin feels soft and supple after every use. My hands and legs are really dry and this scrub doesn’t make them even drier. The finely milled scrub particles are not too harsh, not too mild for the skin. They have the right amount of coarseness to them so that they don’t irritate the skin.

Junaili Apricot Body Oil

Junaili Apricot Body Oil| Cherry On Top

Price- 600INR for 240ml, 350INR for 120ml

Packaging- The packaging of this body oil is quite similar to the scrub except for that it comes in a plastic bottle and has a stopper inside the metallic screw lid. You have to open the outer lid first and then remove the stopper to take out the product. I have made a few tiny holes on the stopper which ensures that it dispenses the product in droplets. Again, this is a spillproof packaging. Being plastic packaging, these are easy to travel with.

Junaili Apricot Body Oil (2)

My Experience- Although I have a very dry body skin, I am not a lover of oils. Psychologically, the thought of letting my body come in contact with any kind of oil makes me feel disgusted. But, when I received the Apricot Body Oil by Junaili, I though to of giving it a tr only because of its ingredient. I have been using this oil daily after shower and I love how it works for me. I am glad that I tried this oil out. I like to use it after the shower, after towel drying my skin when it’s still damp. Applying it on a damp skin ensures it gets absorbed by the skin completely and also in this way it doesn’t make the skin too oily.

A regular use of this oil has made my skin softer and more smooth, especially in this time of the year when my skin needed something more. This oil has a long lasting effect on my body. It hydrates my skin for the entire day till the night which is a great thing!

Junaili Apricot Body Care Range Review| Cherry On Top

Overall, I loved both the products. Using both of them together regularly has worked really well for me. I can sure see the glow it has added to my skin and also my skin feels a less dry these days. I am really happy with Junaili’s products. I like their oil more than their scrub and I might be buying another bottle for the winter. Their body oil is rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, they are full of anti-aging properties and are claimed to have the power of diminishing wrinkles. They are safe for children. They have also introduced a new product which is a facial oil which I am planning to give a go. You can check out and buy their products at their merchant website. I’ll be back again with a new post very soon. Till then, be safe & keep smiling!

Hello everyone, hope you all are doing great. Today, I am going to share my views on the new Himalaya Herbals lip care lip balms. If you guys follow me on Instagram then you already have seen how these balms look like. Now, I am going to let you know how these lip balms actually are. So, this is going to be an overview of the newly launched lip balms by Himalaya Herbals.
Recently, Himalaya Herbals has launched five new lip balms that are made of all-natural ingredients, completely sans preservatives, petroleum jelly, mineral oil and silicones. They are enriched with 100% natural colours, Vitamin E and antioxidants. Himalaya Herbals is known for using natural ingredients and that is why it has been my favourite since my teenage days. I am so glad that they have come up with these newly formulated lip balms with new and exciting packaging.

10

Price- 125 INR for 4.5gms

Variants- There is a total of five variants that were launched- Natural Soft Vanilla, Rich Cocoa Butter, Peach Shine, Strawberry Shine and Litchi Shine. Now, as you might have assumed by the names, the new Himalaya Herbals lip care balms are not only different in flavours but also in their formulation and purpose. The variants Natural Soft Vanilla and Rich Cocoa Butter are solely created to nourish your lips and are enriched with natural ingredients. The other three variants- Peach Shine, Strawberry Shine and Litchi Shine are meant for adding a bit of tinge and glossiness to your lips. These are also enriched with natural vitamin E, antioxidants and colours. However, only Strawberry Shine among the three has a hint of colour to it. I have swatched the other two but even after a few swipes nothing showed up. Strawberry Shine has a bit of pink tone to it but it barely showed up when I applied it to my lips. It might be because I have slightly pigmented lips.

Packaging- The new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care lip balms come in a plastic twist up packaging. The colour of the cases signifies the colour of the product inside. The two variants, Natural Soft Vanilla and Rich Cocoa Butter come in a slightly different packaging. The casing of these two are matte, and the bottom parts are also different (Please refer to the photos). Unlike these two variants, the other three Shine variants have shinier casing and the bottoms are transparent. The packaging is really sturdy and lightweight. The lid closes tightly.
All New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.com All New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.comAll New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.comAll New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.comAll New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.comAll New Himalaya Herbals Lip Care Lip Balms Review| cherryontopblog.com
Formula- The formula of this balms is amazing. They are really hydrating but does not feel too much intense or heavy on the lips. One can feel the richness of them once applied. I felt that the Shine variants are a little less in richness but they are extremely moisturising. All these balms give you a healthy look to the lips. Even those Shine variants do not make the lips look glossy as if you have a lipgloss on. They just make them nourished, lustrous and soft.
What I liked- The new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care lip balms do what they claim. They moisturise, make the lips soft and make them look lustrous. The lip balms stay put on my lips for an average of 5-6 hours. The first two variants, Natural Soft Vanilla and Rich Cocoa Butter are more long lasting than the other three variants.
 
What I did not like- The only thing I disliked about these balms is their aroma. I don’t know if you guys will feel the same or not but I have a sensitive nose and probably that is the reason I found the fragrance of these balms a bit overpowering. Although the aroma is not long-lasting, it fades away as time passes but somehow I don’t like flavoured lip balms. I won’t consider it as a downside but the lip balms tend to melt in this extremely hot and humid weather, especially the Rich Cocoa Butter one. But, storing them in a cool place minimises the problem.

My views on the new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care balms-

Overall, I really liked these newly formulated lip balms by Himalaya Herbals. I think it is a great value for the price you pay. Also, these are made of all natural ingredients which is always a plus point. I would recommend these balms to everybody. I am using the Rich Cocoa Butter lip balm the most among the lot. I could not find any product list written anywhere on the packaging. The shelf-life of these balms are almost a year. Also, these new Himalaya Herbals Lip Care lip balms claim to save your lips from environmental harms but these do not contain any SPF.
Let me know if you have used any of these lip balms. I would love to know your views on this. I will be back with a new post soon. Till then, be safe & keep smiling!
 Hey dolls, hope you all are doing good. I just noticed that I have not posted any product reviews for a long time. So, here is one for you. I have been planning to review a body scrub for so long and now here it is. Today, I am going to review a very famous coffee body scrub from one of my favourite skincare brands that is Gia Bath & Body Works. If you are following my blog for a long time then you would know that I have reviewed their soaps once on my blog. If you have not read that post, check it now here.
Coffee may not be good for your health but it is really good for your skin. Coffee has the power to reduce tan and exfoliate efficiently. I have always wanted to make a DIY coffee scrub but I failed several times due to my laziness (guilty as charged). But, my wish came true when I found out a jar of the delicious-smelling Coffee Body Polish hiding in my Gia Bath & Body Works products. Gayatri, the owner of Gia Bath & Body Works is too kind to send a freebie with the purchased products. I am really thankful to her for she chose just the right product to surprise me. Thank you, Gayatri di 😀
Now, let’s jump into the review. Let me tell you first that I have been using the Gia Bath & Body Works Coffee Body Polish since April and loving it since my very first use.

The product comes in the plastic jar with an aluminium screw lid which is totally spill-proof. The label mentioning the name of the product, ingredients and price is attached to the jar. The appearance of the product states its handmade attribute. The sturdy plastic packaging makes it travel-friendly. The scrub is very sticky in texture. It smells of real coffee. The moment the whiff enters your nose you immediately know that you have spent on the right product. The Gia Bath & Body Works Coffee Body Polish is high in consistency thus need to be mixed with little water in order to apply evenly all over the body. Because of the intense consistency, a little amount of the product is enough for my entire body. The fragrance lingers for a long period of time which is a bonus for me.

Price: 590 INR for 150gm

The gentle yet effective sugar granules help scour out the dry skin making the skin really soft and smooth. The scrub is not harsh on your skin at all. It doesn’t irritate or dry out my normal skin. I have not experienced any type of skin allergy or side effects on my skin so far. 150 grams of product is priced 590/- which I think is totally fair for a handmade product. I have been using it for 2 months for twice a week and I think I have only finished up 30% of the product so far. So, this is absolutely a smart investment.

I am in love with this product since I started using it. When it comes to skincare we all need something that contains the right ingredients that prove to be beneficial for your skin. Gia Bath & Body works is such a brand that I can completely rely on. I would definitely suggest you to buy this scrub and to try out yourself. You can buy from their website or you can contact them on their Facebook Page to order directly or for any queries.

I hope if found this review helpful. Write in the comments if you have used any of the Gia Bath & Body Works products and why you love them. Comment below telling which is your favourite body polish/scrub so far.  I will be back again with a new post soon. Till then be safe & keep smiling!
