Hello Glamazons!

Today I will be reviewing, the Natural Bath & Body Co.s Rose and Mint Hand Souffle. I received it in my March, 2017 MSM Style Box.

I have the 50 gm tub which  retails for Rs.275/- only. “For the daily rigor that our hands go through they deserve the advanced treatment that Natural Bath & Body stimulating cream provides.

Enriched with fusion of organic and natural butters that protects and deeply hydrates the skin. It has a Soothing scent of freshly plucked Rose petals and a hint of garden Mint is pure decadence.” ( Nykaa.com)

Let me start with the scent. It reminded me of a face mask of a cheap beauty parlor.

Frankly, I was expecting something a little more exotic. Though I have to say I love the color and texture of this product.

The packaging could be a little more “rose-y”. They have been stingy with the roses.

This product also claims to be an effective, heavy hand cream/souffle (explains the light texture) that softens dry skin, chapped cuticles and callused heels. Its enriched with the goodness of rose petals and fresh mint.

Its summers here now and I have been using a lot of this cream and I have found that it not only protects the skin from dryness, but also nourishes and deeply hydrates the skin. This product is also paraben free.

I was looking up parabens and their effects on the skin and here’s some information. Parabens can cause allergic reactions and breast cancer.

I was reading up a bit about this brand and came to know that Natural Bath & Body makes a wide range of unique organic skin care, bath and body products. Their products are manufactured using only “natural essential oils and botanical extracts and are a perfect blend of ancient Ayurvedic concepts, modern technology and creativity.

All their products are made with high quality, exotic ingredients, superior hygiene standards and are absolutely safe to use.”

How to use Rose& Mint Hand Souffle : 

  1. Smooth over hands after washing. Use as often as required.

Symphony Beauty | Makeup cleansing wipes

img_0392

Hello my Beauties!

Today I will be reviewing , Symphony Beautys’ makeup cleansing wipes.  I received it in my August, Ipsy Glam Bag.

The wipes comes in a pista green packet and I have 10 wipes in this pack. This typically retails for $2/- (USD).

Approximately Rs.134/- only. This is a full size, pack.

The website states: “Moisturise- Restores skin with soothing extracts and long-lasting moisture. Refresh- Revives dull, tired skin for a smoother, more radiant look. Rejuvenate- Nourishes skin for a more youthful, healthy-looking complexion.”

I have gone through 9 of them and kept the last one for this review. I use these to remove a full face of make up.

And by that I mean, foundation/BB cream, concealer, eye shadow, eye liner, mascara, and lipstick. While it does quite a good job on the rest of the face, the eye make up doesn’t budge as much.

The pack claims that it moisturizes, cleanses and brightens, While I agree with the moisturizing and cleansing bit I haven’t really noticed its brightening properties.

Normally as you wipe off makeup with wipes  the skin tends to dry up and get flaky and itchy. That might be attributed to the presence of alcohol.

These wipes are alcohol free. So that problem is solved.

It contains: 

  • Cucumber: Improves complexion and rejuvenates the skin. A mix of cucumber juice and a few drops of lemon juice applied as a face mask usually leave the skin glowing.
  • Aloe Vera: Helps in cleansing, moisturizing, refreshing and rejuvenating all types of skin – whether dry, oily, normal or sensitive.
  • Arbutin: The skin brightener you never heard of! Arbutin is a molecule extracted from the bearberry plant that prevents the formation of melanin.  

These wipes are recommended for all skin types. I have oily skin and I can easily say that it worked great on my skin.

Check out the texture on this wipe

The product is paraben and sulphate free. These wipes restores the skin with soothing extracts and long lasting moisture.

How to use Symphony Beauty Wipes: 

  1. Gently massage the wipe over face and neck until impurities are removed.
  2. No rinsing is necessary.
  3. Reseal pack after use to preserve moisture in the wipes.

First things first its got an amazing fragrance. The wipes are luxuriously soft and and  gently sweep away make up, oil and impurities.

The pack states “Along with nourishing natural extracts, each wipe is infused with a concentrated brightening complex arbutin, designed to impart a radiant, youthful glow. Symphony Beauty make up cleansing wipes are safe and effective for all.”

My skin felt perfectly clean and and refreshed in a single, easy step. After I finished with the face and neck, I washed my face with Cetaphil face cleanser to get rid off whatever eye make up the wipe didn’t get.

All in all this make up wipe is great for removing light make up or refreshing your face after a long day. As an additional benefit I felt that these wipes unclog your pores.

Which is great for oily skin!The packs themselves are available in packs of 10, 30 and 60.

Some useful information I found about the Symphony Beauty wipes on the Ipsy Glam Bag wipes, ” Symphony Beauty Box brings together cutting-edge Korean innovations with luxurious formulas and natural botanicals in perfect balance. Fast-acting solutions for all skin types, designed to max out on skincare benefits and clinically proven to work.”

So that’s it from me. Thank you for reading.

Fango Essenziali | Moisturize sheet mask

IMG_0275

Hello my Beauties!

Today I will be reviewing , The Fango Essenziali Moisturize sheet mask.  I received it in my July,2016 Glossy Box.

The mask comes in a green packet and I have one sheet mask which is 25 ml. This typically retails for $7/- (USD).

Approximately Rs.466/- only. This is the full size, sheet mask.

The website states: “……Thirsty, parched skin is refreshed and renewed with Fango Essenziali’s Moisturize sheet mask. A special cocktail of skin soothing ingredients- avocado, kelp and acai berry to hydrate, nourish and restore even the driest, most sensitive skin. ”

I can easily say that this is my new best friend. Its perfect to use alone or in between mud treatments.

A remedy for parched, dry skin. It helps to nourish and deeply moisturize.

It contains: 

Avocado : To nourish and condition skin for a youthful glow.

Kelp extract : To aid in skin regeneration &rejuvenation.

Acai berry: A powerful antioxidant that’s ideal for tired skin.

Though this face mask is recommended for dry skin, its good to use on oily skin as well. After all oily skin needs moisture too!

The product is paraben free and is clinically and allergy tested. The mask intensely moisturizes and hydrates due to the blend of  avocado, kelp and acai berry.

The acai berry in it is not only a great anti oxidant but also doubles as an anti aging agent.

You can upgrade this masks potential by:

  1. Cleansing the skin
  2. Remove the white protective sheet on the mask.
  3. Place the mask on the face
  4. Remove the clear film
  5. Adjust and smooth out mask to ensure good contact
  6. Leave on for 5 to 25 minutes (As per instructions on the pack; I kept it on for 15 minutes)
  7. Remove the mask and massage excess serum into the face for maximum benefits.

So head band on, make up off lets apply this baby to the face! First things first its got an amazing fragrance.

The mask doesn’t dry off as such due to its moisture content. After I finished with the face I placed the bunched up mask on my closed lips to get rid of dry skin on my lips.

You don’t need to wash this mask of. Whatever was left in the pack I rubbed it into my neck as well.

And once I was done, it left my face smooth and refreshed.

So that’s it from me. Thank you for reading.

The Original Fango Mud Therapy | Jor’el Parker

IMG_0098
Jor’el Parker | Fango Mud Therapy

Hello my Beauties!

Today I will be reviewing (as the title suggests), The Original Fango Mud Therapy by Jor’el Parker. The mask itself comes in an orange,recyclable tube and I have the 30 ml size.

This typically retails for $10/- (USD). Approximately Rs.671/- only.

A full size 210 ml mask tube retails for $70 (USD) or Rs.4,700/- only. The website states: “Reveal your best skin from head to toe with our Fango Mud Therapy. Blended with moisturizing Sweet Almond and nourishing Avocado oils, along with rejuvenating Green Tea antioxidants and exfoliating Volcanic Ash minerals, our Fango Mud intensely hydrates, protects and deep cleanses your skin.”

This face mask which is safe enough to use on the body as well. Though it doesn’t say what skin type it suits I have a feeling it will be most suited for oily skin types, and offers anti aging and skin brightening properties. .

The product is 100% vegan and is gluten and cruelty free. It protects the skin from harmful damage caused by free radicals and pollutants in the environment.

The mask intensely moisturizes and hydrates due to the blend of the sweet almond and avocado oil. The green tea in it is not only a great anti oxidant but also doubles as an anti aging agent, while the volcanic ash gently exfoliates the skin.

The tube claims that it minimizes pores, reduces fine lines and deep cleanses. Regular use will decrease dark circles and reverse sun damage.

Over time it will purify the skin to bring out your natural luster and tone.Noteworthy ingredients are:

  1. Water (I like it when this is the first ingredient listed in a product)
  2. Kaolin, Bentonite (healing clay mud; Yup so made for oily skin)
  3. Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (organic sweet almond) oil
  4. Persea Gratissima (organic avocado) oil
  5. Gaultheria Procumbens (wintergreen) leaf extract | Tones the skin and prevents acne
  6. Anthemis Nobilis (chamomile) flower extract | Reduces skin irritants by neutralizing free radicals.
  7. Calendula Officinalis (pot marigold) flower extract | An anti-aging ingredient.

You can upgrade this masks potential by:

  1. Bringing water to a gentle boil, and (safely!) exposing your face to the steam.
  2. Allow 2-3 minutes for your pores to fully open.
  3. Immediately follow with mask application.
  4. Apply directly on skin avoiding any contact with the eyes
  5. Leave it on to dry for 15 minutes
  6. Wash off completely with water

So head band on, make up off lets apply this baby to the face! First things first its a lovely green color!

Just a teensy bit on my finger

And now that I have it on, I look like Shrek! I was thinking of including a mask selfie but don’t want to to scare people off!

The mask smells sweet its like you could almost smell the sweet almond oil and the flower extracts.It gives just a bit of a tingly feel which feels quite cooling and relaxing.  

Its very easy to spread and applies evenly.Also pretty fast drying!

IMG_0034
The mask as it dries off

As it dries, it turns to an ashy greyish-green. You can see where its working hard on clearing out the impurities.

While washing I found that because its clay based, its a bit slippery and slimy to wash off. I had to finally resort to a wash cloth to get it all off.

But I feel super clean!! And I have to say that this mud therapy mask does exactly what it says!!

I had  blackheads on my nose and enlarged pores on my cheeks now they’re all gone! I have a 30 ml tube so I don’t expect it to last that long (I apply face masks every weekend) but a little goes a long way, so you’re definitely getting your money’s worth!

 

I will definitely buy the full size once this when gets over and will give it 4.5 stars on a 5 star rating scale.
So that’s it from me. Thank you for reading.
