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)

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

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?

When it comes to skincare, French brands have always ruled the market. Vichy is one of the leading French skincare brands which is not only famous in France but also across the globe. Vichy is also loved by Indian women as it has proved to be a trustworthy brand that works great for the Indian wet and dry tropical climate. I have recently switched things a little bit in my skincare routine and have included the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum in it. I have been using this serum for quite some time now so I thought of sharing a review of it with all of you. Let’s start-

Price- Rs 1850/- for 30ml (Buy at Amazon, Nykaa)

Packaging- The Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum comes in a pretty blue glass bottle with a pump dispenser. The pump is protected with a clear plastic cap which closes tightly ensuring no spillage. Although the look of the product is great but it is not safe for travelling. The glass bottle has to be handled very carefully which is quite a task for me.

Ingredients- Aqua/Water, Glycerin, Dimethicone, PEG/PPG/Polybutylene Glycol-8/5/3 Glycerin, PEG-60 Hydrogenated Castor Oil, Dimethiconol, Sodium Hyaluronate, Phenoxyethanol, Chondrus Crispus (Carrageenan), Ammonium Polyacryldimethyltauramide/Ammonium Polyacryloyldimethyl Taurate, Poloxamer 338, Disodium EDTA, Caprylyl Glycol, Citric Acid, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Acrylates/ C 10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Cross polymer, Parfum/Fragrance, Code F.I.L. B163732/2

Texture- Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum is a whitish serum that has a thin, silicone-y texture when it comes out of the bottle but when rubbed between the fingers the texture becomes watery. Having a thin texture allows it to get absorbed easily and instantly into the skin.

How to Use- After thoroughly cleaning and toning your face, take out a small amount of the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum onto your palms and dab it onto your face. A full pump is enough for the entire face and neck area. Use it twice a day- in the morning and at the night.

My Experience with Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum

I have been using this product for almost a month now and I can definitely say that it has become the most favourite part of my winter skincare. If you have normal to dry skin or if you have combination skin that gets dry during winters then this product is for you. I use it twice a day before moisturizing my skin. Before starting off with my experience with the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum, I jus want to let you know a little bit more about my skin and its concerns. I generally have a combination skin which means normal skin with an oily t-zone. During most part of the year, it behaves like that but during winters it becomes very dry. Sometimes I observe the appearance of dry patches or skin peeling around my mouth and my nose. Last year, I had a hard time dealing with a couple of dry patches around my lips which was really irritating. I do not usually get acne on my face except for that time of the month or if I get any kind of anxiety or stress or if I skip my skincare routine which is a rare case.

The Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum is really hydrating as you can guess from the name itself. At least for my skin type, this product hydrates my face enough for it to need any extra moisturizer. Those who have very dry skin must apply a moisturizer. Although I do not skip on my moisturizer , it keeps my face moisturized for good 9-10 hours when applied on its own. As it gives a nice hydration, it can be used as a multipurpose skincare product in summers.

Not only the Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum gives a surge of hydration to the skin, but it also replenishes the skin, improves the skin texture and makes it soft and supple for a long time. You can definitely notice a healthy glow on your face after using it. I won’t say that it has brought about a dramatic change to my skin but it has definitely improved it a bit. This year, I did not observe any kind of dry-patches or skin peeling on my skin which was severe last year. To add more, Vichy Aqualia Thermal Dynamic Hydration Serum is hypoallergenic, free from parabens, non-comedogenic, non-oily and safe for sensitive skin. The only bad thing about this product is that it contains silicone.


With this, I sum up my first review of 2017. Hope you had a great New Year’s Eve. Wish you a very happy new year. May this new year bring new opportunities to your lives.
