Product Review: Zuska Deodorant

Hey guys, its been a while since I reviewed products and hence decided to get back on my blog! So this time I will be reviewing a deodorant that goes by the name “Zuska”. As you all know, I have already reviewed Zuci Naturals and their products and Zuci and Zuska are both products of the group Zodhita Inc.

 ZUSKA is the creation of a leading health and wellness organization from the United States of America, Zodhita Inc. Zodhita Health Solution is the 1st Asian subsidiary of Zodhita Inc- a health and hygiene company based in Newtown, Pennysylvania. Zuska entered India through its local operations with Zodhita Health Solutions Pvt. Ltd. in December of 2008, with sales and marketing activities beginning in May of 2010.

Zuska has a lot of product offering for men- EDT Deodorants, Alcohol free deodorants, shaving cream, shaving foam and deo soaps. The offering also include a variety of deodorants for women.  I will be reviewing the deodorant- Zuska Vogue Deo.

Packaging: The deodorant bottle is quite sturdy and comes in a matte pink shade and white cover. The spray is sealed with a cap which is quite good as it doesn’t allow people to misuse the product at stores.

Price: Rs.250 for 150ml

Fragrance: The fragrance reminds me of talcum powder. Its quite overpowering.

Pros:

  • The spray is sealed with a lid, which i a plus point, as it helps one to understand if the product has been tampered with or not.
  • It is alcohol free and skin friendly.

Cons:

  • The fragrance gives me a feeling as though I have dusted talcum powder on my body, which is something I don’t like. The fragrance is really very strong for me. I prefer deos which are citrus/floral/fresh . I would not prefer a deo which gives me a powdery fragrance.
  • It is priced at Rs.250 for 150ml, which I find a little expensive.
  • At the price , I think the brand can improve on the packaging and make it a little more attractive.

So will I repurchase the product? I guess not… as I would love if it was not a powdery fragrance. The fragrance is really strong as well .

But yes, this is just one of the variants that I have tried and tested. Would have to try out others to know which one suits my taste!

You could purchase Zuska deodorants on amazon or snapdeal.

Product Review: Ryaal Mr. Beans – 100% Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub

A coffee Scrub that would be loved by all the coffee lovers!!!!!

Yes! This scrub is loaded with the goodness of organic coffee, coconut and wild bee honey. Once this little tub is opened up, the aroma of coffee is what got me lost in the product for a while. So let me give you all the detail about this amazing product. This is a PR sample and this product is something that I have fallen in love with and will definitely repurchase.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>About the Brand:
Ryaal is a brand that is into 100% organic pure, non diluted essential oils and skin care and hair care products as well.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>What it Claims:
” CELLULITE ENEMY: We combine best quality of organic coffee grounds with moisturizing, skin-soothing wild bee honey and organic coconut oil for an extra exfoliating kick. By massaging our organic anti cellulite coffee body scrub onto any problem area, it may help in reduction of the appearance of cellulite.

LOADED WITH ANTI-OXIDANTS: Our Coffee Body Scrub is loaded with antioxidants, which help to fight the appearance of premature skin aging like wrinkles, sun spots, and fine lines. When applied under and around the eyes, it can help in minimizing the appearance of puffy eyes as caffeine restricts blood vessels, which reduces swelling and inflammation.

100% Natural Arabica Coffee Scrub 125 gm with Organic Coffee, Coconut and Wild Bee Honey : Purchase with complete peace of mind, If you are not completely satisfied with the product, we will refund your entire purchase.. “

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>About the Product:
Price: Rs. 499/- for 125gm tub

Packaging: I love the Matte finish black tub!!. The tub, the colour and the letterings used reminds me of Lush!!! I just wished they had sent over a spatula with the tub ! The ingredients are mentioned on the tub.

Consistency: The scrub is not one of those Thick scrubs. Its light and in liquid form. It has The coffee granules in it which make your skin squeaky clean and leaves behind a glow.

Fragrance: Strong Coffee aroma

My Take on the Product:

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>

I have sensitive skin , but not much of acne. The product didn’t break me out and the fragrance is simply amazing. I am a coffee lover and hence the fragrance appeals to me. If you are not very fond of coffee, you might give this a miss , just cos of the fragrance. But I would still suggest that you try this out!

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>
I have used this product for months now, and I haven’t used it just on my face , but as a body scrub at times too. And I like the immediate effect! the skin gets a glow and gets squeaky clean. I don’t rub the product harshly onto my skin. A light rub is enough.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>
As a face mask, you need to apply it onto your face and allow it to dry up. As you rinse it off with water, gently rub the product in circular motion and then rinse it off completely.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>
Coffee is supposed to help in lightening pigmentation, scars and brightening the skin. The scrub serves the purpose. I use it once a week and a lot of dark spots have lightened.
It makes the skin more bright and radiant.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Pros:
– Highly effective in lightening the dark spots and pigmentation.
– it is 100% handmade and vegetarian.
-doesn’t dry the skin like most of the other scrubs.( the other scrub which I recommend is the almond shea and rose from Juicy Chemistry).
– Doesn’t irritate the skin (especially the coffee granules)
– effective as a Deep Cleanser and gets rid of Blackheads.
-Love the coffee fragrance

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Cons:
-Overpowering Coffee fragrance which can be an issue for those who dislike coffee or have a sensitive nose.
-Comes in a tub- please pack in a spatula team !!! Its a little unhygienic if it has to be used by all.
-The products are available online and not in stores in the market.

So, this product is my Favourite and I recommend this one to all the coffee lovers and also the non-coffee lovers!!!! Please go and try this out!!! A must have scrub in your kin care regime. Though this was a PR sample, this product is gonna be on my repurchase list!

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Shop for Ryaal products at Amazon.in or visit their website http://www.ryaal.com ( you can get a 15% discount code on your email ). Check them out on instagram as well–RyaalUsa 
So go try out their products and let me know what you feel about them!

Brand Review: Zuci Naturals

Years back, I remember walking into a Health and Glow store in Bangalore while I was doing my Masters and this brand would catch my eye because of its reasonably priced hand sanitizers and wet wipes. I would be so tempted to buy all of the sanitizers cos of the variety offered and the price being so reasonable! Zuci Naturals has been part of my student life and its amazing to see so many improvements and new launches made by the brand!

About the Brand:
It is one of the leading personal care brands from Zodhita Health Solutions Pvt ltd- a health and hygiene enterprise based in Mumbai. Zodhita Health Solution is the 1st Asian subsidiary of Zodhita Inc.-a health and hygiene company based in Newtown, Pennysylvania.

Zuci is derived from the Sanskrit word for clean and pure. Zuci brings a range of nature inpired products to deliver hygiene and beauty for the female go-getter who believes that beauty is incomplete without hygiene.
Zuci, like the on-the-go woman, believes that clean is beautiful.

Product Range:
The brand offers an array of products- hand sanitizers, hand wash, wet wipes, Junior range of hand sanitizers for kids. The other offering is Zuska- which has deodrants for both men and women.

Here are the product offerings by Zuci:
I]Hand sanitizers: They come in a variety of fragrances- cherry, citrus lime, fragrance free, natural, coconut , cucumber, tulsi basil.
The sanitizers have 99.99% germ protection and are a perfect hygiene companion while travelling in public transport. Along with protection against germs, they also moisturise the palms as they are enriched with Vitamin E.

II] Wet Wipes:
The wet wipes come in the below variants:
– Citrus Fruit Extract: Deep pore cleansing
– Aloe Vera Extract : Sunscreen wipes
– Cucumber and mint: For soothing skin
– Chamomile Extract: For all skin types
III] Colourful bag tags are available for the hand sanitizers
IV] HandWash:
– Tropical Fruit Blast
– Cool Citrus Mint
-Ripe Berry Blast
V] Zuska Deodrants: Many variants are available for men and women- I assume an approximate of 6 variants each for men and women.

Coming to my take on the products offered by Zuci, the brand sent across the below 3 products to me and I absolutely loved two of these products:
– The Ripe Berry Blast Hand wash with aloe and vitamin E beads
– Junior range -Mango Hand sanitizer
-Zuska Vogue Deo

So here’s a mini review of all the three products :
1. The Ripe Berry Blast Hand Wash:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 

This is a combination of 3 berries- strawberry fragrance being the most intense. The hand wash not only cleanses and moisturises the hands but leaves behind a lingering fragrance of berries.
My take on this product:
– The bottle is a simple plastic pump bottle . the gold detailing at the base of the pump and the color of the handwash make the bottle attractive.
– This hand wash is purple in colour with orange beads.
– I loved the fragrance.
– The consistency is medium
– My palms feel fresh , clean and the fragrance is way too amazing.
– The moisturising Vitamin E beads and aloe do as promised- my palms didn’t dry out and I looked forward to every hand wash!!!!!

2. The Mango Hand sanitizer from the Junior range:
Since my kid is not of age to use one of these products, i was more than happy to try it out myself 🙂

My take on this product:

– The bottle is a simple transparent one whith a flip cap.
– The product is priced at Rs.50 for 30ml.
– The colour of the product is mild orange with the vitamin E orange coloured beads.
– The bottle is travel friendly, and leak proof.
– The bag tag helps keep it in place than being thrown around in the bag.
– The fragrance is mild, which is good for children.
– It is quite gentle on the hands and doesnt dry them out which is a plus point when it comes to children .
I loved this product!

3) Zuska Vogue Deodrant for Women:
The packaging is a simple pink bottle with the details of the brand and other information in white.

My Take on the product:
The spray is sealed with a lid, which I a plus point, as it helps one to understand if the product has been tampered with or not.
It is alcohol free and skin friendly.
Cons:
– The fragrance gives me a feeling as though I have dusted talcum powder on my body, which is something I don’t like.
– The fragrance is really very strong for me. I prefer deos which are citrus/floral/fresh . I would not prefer a deodorant which gives me a powdery fragrance.
– It is priced at rs.250 for 150ml, which i find a little expensive.
At the price , I think the brand can improve on the packaging and make it a little more attractive.

In short, I loved the hand wash and hand sanitizer ! the deodorant unfortunately isn’t my favourite!
Looking forward for more launches by this brand in the hygiene segment- intimate care wipes and washes, lip balms, hand creams etc.

For more information on the company visit www.zodhita.com
For purchase of Zucinatural products head to www.zucinaturals.com where you could get some deals or you could purchase any of the products on amazon/snapdeal etc.

Have a great day!!!!

Review: Juicy Chemistry Rose, Almond & Shea Body Scrub (For Dry & Tanned Skin)

IMG_3687.PNG

I purchased this body scrub as I was traveling to my hometown where the climate is hot and humid most of the time, and I end up with a tan despite all the necessary care taken to avoid a tan. I came across this product on Nykaa and since I had heard and read about the brand and its product offerings, I decided to give it a try. Since it’s 100% natural, it was a safe bet for me. Also i don’t have any kind of allergic reaction to any of the ingredients mentioned.

About the Brand Juicy Chemistry:

Juicy Chemistry was co-founded by Pritesh & Megha Asher in 2014, with a goal to provide effective skin care products formulated with the purest and the most nutrient rich ingredients the nature has to offer.

At Juicy Chemistry, by selecting the finest natural ingredients, they harness the power within them to boost the vitality of this most precious and sensitive organ. The idea being, if it’s good enough to eat; it’s good enough to go on your skin.

They bring you the right mix of foods to nourish your skin by embracing the simple yet effective properties of the ingredients. Produce obtained in its purest form, without any preservatives, additives, synthetic oils, or perfumes is at the heart of Juicy Chemistry.

As rightly said by Megha – “When we say its natural it is natural. Going chemical free should not be a matter of choice; it should be a way of life!”

About The Product – Juicy Chemistry Rose, Almond & Shea Body Scrub:

Price: Rs.550

Quantity: 75gm

Shelf Life: 6 months

Fragrance: Strong scent of rose with a hint of almond oil fragrance

Consistency/Texture: Quite granular unlike the synthetic scrubs

My Take On The Product:
When the package arrived, I opened it to find more than just a scrub! They had also sent a spoon to scoop out product and a Natural Loofa (I havent clicked pictures of the Loofa but can google up one and attach it for reference). So it was a surprise for me!!

I use the scrub every alternate day, at night while I shower. I use it on the areas like my arms, feet and neck, that are prone to maximum tan.

On using the product, one can immediately see a difference in the skin. The scrub exfoliates the skin, thereby getting rid of the dead skin cells. Also , the tan is reduced in the first scrub itself. The skin appears to be brighter post the scrub. The Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter moisturise the skin and I don’t have to use a moisturiser on the areas that i use this scrub.

It also leaves behind a mild rose fragrance on the skin which I love 🙂

Pros:

  • I love the fragrance. The scent of rose is overpowering but in a good way.
  • No need to use a moisturiser post using the scrub.
  • Immediately brightens the skin.
  • It is good not only for tanned skin but for dry skin as well, as it doesn’t dry out the skin unlike other scrubs.
  • It is 100% Natural.
  • Isn’t tested on animals.
  • Comes in recyclable jars.
  • No artificial colours/preservatives.
  • The jar is a travel friendly size.

Cons:

  • The Product is a little expensive for 75 gm.

 

My Rating: 4.5/5 

Would I Recommend the Product to Others?

Yes! It is a little expensive , but it comes a long way. As it has to be used on tanned areas or dry areas. And yes, we pay a bomb for products which are made using chemicals / synthetic fragrances etc. So , why not pay for a product that is 100 % natural? It is worth the money and safe for your skin too!!!

Hope this review helps you !!

Love,

Sonali đź’–

 

 

 

 

Review: The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel

Hi guys!!! been a while since I’ve raved about few products :D! Just Kidding 🙂 But yes, here I am , back with a few back to back reviews on the products that I’ve been using of late in my shower, skin care etc. So yes, I thought I would share my views on the products so that you could go ahead and purchase them or avoid purchasing them.

I had posted my shower essentials on Instagram. Now if you aren’t following me there,go ahead and follow me: SonaliMendonsa , ‘cos I give mini reviews out there and i think those might help you out as well. I also review restaurants, food, skin care, makeup etc, in fact i review the things that I invest on as I am sure many of you would like a second opinion before you go and splurge on the products ( I do that even now, I look upto some of my favourite youtubers for their opinions )

I simply love the products from The Body Shop and they have always fascinated me with their new launches, and the ingredients used and the needs they cater to. So I always look forward to their new launches and cant resist the urge to splurge a little on these goodies. But yes, The Body Shop is very kind to skin care addicts like me and comes up with the Flat 50% off on certain products on their online store, and I managed to grab this Shower Gel and many more products at half the original price.

So, let me begin about the product that has been a part of my shower essentials : The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel.

The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel claims to:

Lather up with richly foaming, non-drying cleansing for your shower, enriched with Community Fair Trade Argan oil from Morocco.

Price: Rs. 425 (currently available at a discounted price of Rs.345)

Quantity: 250 ml

Packaging:  All shower gels of The Body Shop come in sturdy transparent plastic bottle with a flip top cap which makes it easy to dispense the product on a loofah or your palm.The Consistency of the shower gel is medium which can be easily poured.

Shelf Life: 2 years

Fragrance: The shower gel has a woody, yet sweet and very mild fragrance. Not a fragrance that makes one feel like getting rid of the product or the person smellling of the product ;p

My Experience with The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel:

The Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel smells soothing and is quite different from the range of shower gels that The Body Shop has (Satsuma, Moringa, Olive,etc. which are more fruity/floral). Argan Oil had stormed the skincare/beauty/makeup industry and I could see and hear Argan oil and its benefits in almost every second product.

Argan Oil on its own has various benefits and let me restrict them to the skin and body:

  • Argan oil balances out your skin’s natural oil production and completely transforms your skin, making you look more radiant.
  • Its hydrating properties are also great on wrinkles and help to plump up skin.
  • It can be used as a daily moisturizer before you layer on your SPF.
  • You can use argan oil as a full body moisturizer, applying it just as you would a body lotion or cream. Apply the oil right after you get out of the shower while your skin is still wet for the best moisturizing results.
  • Argan oil is a great treatment for your hands, especially on your cuticles and nails if they’re prone to cracking and peeling. Hydrated hands are youthful hands

So now you know why its used in cosmetics, skincare as well as in hair care. And a lot of bloggers raved about all the products that contain Argan Oil, which is quite right, cos don’t we all want to look young? and have radiant skin? and youthful hands? I do.

Back to the shower gel, a little of the product on the loofah lathers up enough for a shower. If you avoid using a loofah you may require 3-4 mid sized dispenses for a shower.

The fragrance lingers in the  bathroom for a while post the shower, so the next person to use the bathroom will enter a spa for sure [ you can be sure about that 🙂 ].  The fragrance on the body isn’t long lasting; it may last maximum upto an hour, then body mists would do the trick 🙂 . The fragrance is released upon lathering of the shower gel.

Being a soap free cleanser, it doesn’t dry the skin which is a plus point especially in cities which are hot and humid and you don’t want to use a moisturizer immediately post your shower. A moisturizer could be used post an hour or so, as the moisturizing effect fades away with time.

Overall, A good shower gel that cleanses, makes you smell pleasant and nourishes your skin avoiding the immediate need of  moisturizer.

Pros of the Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel:

  • It is a soap free cleanser which is the best thing in a shower gel as it moisturizes the skin instead of making it feel dry and dehydrated.
  • Mild Woody yet Fruity fragrance.
  • Good packaging-simple yet effective.
  • A bottle of shower gel can last a month.
  • No spill outs while traveling.
  • Travel friendly packaging.
  • The bottles can be recycled.
  • The product isn’t tested on animals.

Cons of the Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel:

  • The fragrance isn’t long lasting.
  • The pricing of the product makes it fall into the expensive category of skincare (However, keep a watch on the Flat 50% off sale that The Body Shop has on a timely basis. You can save a lot and be the proud owner of their products without crying).

My Rating:

4.8/5 ( Because one needs to wait for the sale to get the product at half the price, and yes, I would prefer the Satsuma Shower Gel over this for its long lasting lingering fragrance)

Would I repurchase The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Shower Gel? What do I recommend?

Yes, I would if i am looking for a mildly scented shower gel and a soap-free cleanser. Else I would recommend : The Body Shop Satsuma Shower Gel or The Body Shop Olive Shower Gel.

I hope this review answers most of your questions about this product. Incase you have any queries, feel free to post them in the comment sections below. Also let me know what other products from The Body Shop would you want me to review and I would be happy to help.

Review: Fuschia by Vkare Garden Lavender Day Cream with SPF 15

Fuschia is one of the skin care brand that has been raved about by bloggers and skin care enthusiasts and yes they have amazing products to offer. Fuschia was kind enough to send me few products last month and yes I write about these products once I’ve tried them for over a period of 3 weeks. So let’s get started about this little pot of goodness 🙂

About Fuschia:

It is a skin care brand launched from the house of Vkare BioSciences in 2013. The motto of Vkare Biosciences is “We Care” and I must say they definitely have taken that seriously when it comes to their customer’s needs and requirements.

Natural ingredients form the base of their products which work gently on the skin.The whole range of Fuschia products is free from harsh chemicals like parabens, synthetic fragrances (essential oils are used in fuschia products ), SLS(Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) & other chemicals.

Fuschia has grown as a natural, handmade skincare products brand and is almost the dominating brand in the category of natural products. Their products are free from SLS and paraben.

About the Garden Lavender Day Cream:

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Price: It retails at Rs.350 for 30gm of product and Rs.525 for 50gm of product.

The company offers discounts on products during certain periods and at present it retails at Rs.450 (Go Grab Your Bottle )

Shelf Life: 24 months

Packaging: This foot cream comes in a glass jar with an gold color aluminium cover top which makes it look quite worth the money! The price and details about the brand are at the base of the product. The sticker on top of the cover gives the name and the ingredients of the product.

Ingredients: Lavender Oil, Jojoba Oil, Wheat Germ Oil, Olive Oil, Aloe Vera, Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, Kokum Butter, Carrot Seed oil

Fragrance: Lavender Fragrance

Consistency: Thick yet non-greasy on the skin

Colour: The cream is lavender in colour

What The Product Claims:

“Infused with 100% vegetarian & natural  ingredients which rejuvenate & keep your skin supple, light & radiant. Lavender ( lavandula angustifolia ) oil  fights acne & prevents fine lines on skin.  SPF 15 provides UVA & UVB protection”

“For a healthy and refreshing look choose Fuschia – Garden Lavender Day Cream with SPF 15. This comes with optimum quantity of PH value that helps to maintain your skin’s PH levels. Your day cream is also an excellent base for make – up”

“Free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum base, artificial tints  &  synthetic  perfumes. Day cream contains moisturizing elements that keeps your skin hydrated and nourished. You in turn are rewarded with a soft and supple skin”

Tips on Usage of the Product:

  • It is best to apply day cream on well cleansed skin, preferably after a bath.
  • Apply the day cream on your face and neck with the help of gentle circular motions.
  • Choose a cream that suites your skin type (dry, oily, sensitive, normal or combination skin)
  • Apply your day cream before putting on your make – up.

My take on the product:

Post application of this Day Cream, one would smell of Lavender. The Cream is a fusion of various oils and kokum butter which gives it the consistency required and just the right amount of oiliness.

The cream feels thick on the skin post application, which is naturally due to the presence of oils, which makes it a little heavy on the skin. But if you have really dry skin, this is the cream that you should be having with you !

I have a combination skin, and I used this cream when the weather was really cold and I needed a good moisturising cream to go on my face before I apply make-up or just to moisturise my skin post a shower. This cream worked well for me during the winter.

In the summers, I would prefer a gel based product for my skin or any product which is more hydrating on my skin, as my skin tends to get oily pretty soon! Even if i use this day cream before i put on the make-up, I need to let the cream sink in for a good 15minutes and am good to go. But once you step out, the skin may get a little oily as the base cream is heavy.

Also, Let me share a few details on the ingredients used in this day cream and their benefits:

1.       Carrot seed oil: Carrot seed oil is beneficial in lightening the skin tone and to even out the patchy blemished skin. Not only this, this oil has antiseptic, antioxidant and antibacterial properties.

2.       Jojoba oil:  It closely resembles sebum, a waxy substance produced by our skin glands, so it can act as a natural skin conditioner. It has nearly replaced animal fats in the manufacture of skin lotions and creams. It seals in the moisture and creates an effective barrier to external elements. It controls oily skin. It antibacterial properties that help control bacterial growth in the hair follicle. It acts as an anti-inflammatory agent, soothing the irritated skin.

3.       Wheat Germ Oil:  The vitamin E in wheat germ oil makes your skin look supple and glowing. This oil helps you to treat dry body skin and make your body skin look healthy, shiny and smooth thanks to vitamin B inn wheat germ oil. It also contains omega-3 fatty acids and antioxidant compounds that help you to slow down the aging process.

Let’s now talk about the Pros and Cons of the jar of Garden Lavender Day Cream.


Pros:
 

  • It is infused with 100% vegetarian & natural ingredients which rejuvenate & keep your skin supple, light & radiant.
  • The product comes in an attractive container
  • The 30 gm jar is a good travel size option
  • The product has an amazing lavender fragrance
  • The consistency is good , especially for those with dry skin, and for those with combination/oily skin, it’s good for winters
  • The cream is lightweight and moisturizing
  • It has SPF 15 which is amazing
  • The product comes with optimum quantity of PH value that helps to maintain your skin’s PH levels
  • It is Free of parabens, phthalates, petroleum base, artificial tints  &  synthetic  perfumes
  • Could be used on the face as a pre-make-up base.

Cons:

  • It works well for dry skin. People with combination skin and oily skin can use it depending on the change of seasons.
  • Won’t be suitable for usage in places where the humidity is at high.
  • It comes in a glass jar and is prone to breakage!!! So handle it with care
  • A tub packaging lacks hygiene, and no spatula is provided, so you need to get your own spoon or spatula 🙂

Overall, it is a good cream to invest in. If you want a good day cream, those with combination and dry skin can give this one a try. If you have a combination skin, use this cream during winters or if your sure your going to be home for 3-4 hours. Its a good moisturizing cream to use when your at home too! The ones with dry skin, use this cream as and when you wish, as this cream is a good base for make-up, and it is light and hydrating on the skin.

My Rating: 4.5/5

My take on the product:

foot-cream-swatch

I love the fragrance , the colour, the packaging and yes the product itself is amazing. I have used this product in the mornings at times and at night before i go to bed. After i apply the product, i gently massage it into my skin, and the oils and fragrance just make it all the more relaxing.

The cream is nourishing and moisturising and gives my feet a healthy look in few minutes. It isn’t greasy as well which is an added advantage.

To heal cracks, yes, it can’t happen overnight as you all would be knowing it by now, but continous use of the product helps heal them.

Yes, you need to follow a routine and stick to it for any product to have its healing effect on the cracked area of your feet. So, i suggest one should use the product everyday, at least before heading to bed and whenever you feel your feet are getting dry.

I live in Bangalore, and the climate is dry and cold most of the times. This makes it mandatory to follow a strict skin care routine.

Pros:

  • The minty rose fragrance is relaxing
  • The colour of the cream is something i absolutely loved for some reasonJ
  • It is a travel friendly pack.
  • The ingredients used are natural and yes, it has alum which is known for its anti bacterial properties which can kill fungus causing Athlete’s Foot. Also Aloe Vera and camphor help in healing cracks
  • It is Affordable, despite being a natural skin care brand
  • It is SLS , Paraben and chemical free
  • It is 100% vegetarian
  • The product is cruelty free and hasn’t been tested on animals
  • It is thick and moisturising
  • It is non-greasy

Cons:

  • You need to have a spatula to remove product in order to avoid any unhygienic situations.
