Best Natural Skincare


Hello, everyone. Hope you all are doing great. Today’s post is a review of the Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub. Before starting off, I just want to put a disclaimer that this post is in no means sponsored or under a collaboration. I have used Mamaearth products in the past and I feel that this brand needs more exposure than what it gets right now. I have been using this particular scrub for the past couple of weeks and I thought it’s just the right time to share my views with you all. Now, let’s jump straight into the review. 

Scrubbing is one of the most essential parts of my skincare routine. I like to scrub my face every two days because I think that’s what works for me the best. Generally, it is advised to exfoliate your skin at least twice a week. I also like to scrub my face before and after shaving and also after removing my makeup. Scrubbing my face after makeup has proved to be very beneficial for my skin. It helps keep the breakouts at bay.

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub comes in a classic plastic tube packaging. The flip-open lid is quite secure and spill-proof. Overall, I found the packaging very sturdy and sleek. You can easily carry it with you.

Also, all the information about this product is written on the tube, including ingredients and manufacturing and expiry dates which I found really handy.

Texture & Smell

Mamaearth Coco Face Scrub has a very creamy texture. It’s loaded with micro-exfoliating particles. The consistency is not very thick or not to thin thus it’s quite easy to work with it.  The thickness of the product is just perfect so no need to mix it with water. 

The smell is exactly like exotic coffee and a bit of cocoa. Quite obvious, right? The smell actually helps in calming my senses to some extent. Using it in the mornings can actually help you wake up. I find it exclusively great or me as I am a coffee lover. The scent is quite raw and not at all chemical-like. The best thing about the scent is that it’s not very strong or overpowering. It’s mild and relaxing.

My Experience with MamaEarth Coco Face Scrub

Scrubs are one of my favourite skincare steps. I love this particular product for several reasons.

  • Firstly, this is a very mild exfoliator. The granules are loosely packed and are not very abrasive. That’s why it doesn’t feel harsh on the skin. My skin has been acting up lately. It gets bumpy and sometimes sensitive. This scrub doesn’t irritate my skin.
  • The second thing I love about this product is that it doesn’t make the skin dry or stretchy. I have used many scrubs in the past and most of them had a tendency to make your skin look and feel dehydrated. Gladly, this one doesn’t. Rather it keeps the skin moisturized even after cleansing it thoroughly. The shea butter in it makes sure your skin is well-nourished and hydrated. This results in a soft and supple skin every time you use this scrub.
  • The aroma of this is another thing about this scrub that I love. The coffee and cocoa smell makes your mornings even more energetic and also help you relax on your tougher days. 

Overall, I found this product very impressive and effective. It gently exfoliates the dead cells off of the skin leaving it nourished and hydrated. It also effectively removes blackheads too. The skin feels soft and smooth after application which I really like. Although this product is a little on the expensive side I highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a 100% Indian, natural, chemical-free and hydrating exfoliator. #VocalforLocal

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.

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-

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.

My Views on Ashtapathy Herbals Bathing Bars

Ashtapathy Herbals Bathing Bars Review

My first impression on these soaps is that they smell so good! They smell like raw natural/herbal product that they actually are. All the soaps are gentle on the skin and they do not dry out the skin. I would like to talk especially about the Olive Soap that was so smooth and it made my skin soft, supple and visibly healthy. I applied the Mud soap on the body as well as on my face and the result was amazing. The Multani mitti in the soap actually worked well on my oily t-zone and my face felt less oily for quite sometime after the wash. It did not strip off the skin making it dehydrated. The Deva Thali soap was an okayish soap, great for everyday essential use. It cleanses the skin very well giving it proper hydration. These soaps are not fast melting, they last for more than 15 days if properly used.

It also tackles and removes excessive oil as well as toxins from scalp. Regular use makes hair radiant and beautiful. An ideal shampoo for everyday use.

My Views on Ashtapathy Herbals Hair Cleansers-

To be honest, I enjoyed using the Deva Thali shampoo more than the Mud shampoo. Although I have very oily scalp and the Mud shampoo did work on that but it also did tend to dry out my already dry hair. I have a combination hair type- my scalp is oily and hair is dry. So, if you have my type of hair, I would suggest you go for the Deva Thali shampoo instead of the Mud shampoo. The Deva Thali shampoo worked quite well on my hair. It cleansed the scalp, made the hair soft and shiny. Both of the shampoos did not cause hair fall during the shower. It felt really great to use pure and natural products on my hair after continuously treating it with chemicals.

Overall, I enjoyed using the Ashtapathy Herbals products. Their products are available exclusively at Shesha Beauty. A lot of you had asked me to review some new natural skin and hair care products on my Facebook Page, so here it is for you!
