Product Review- Ryaal Anti-Aging Vitamin C 20% Serum with Hyaluronic Acid and Vit E

Hey Guys!

I have been trying this product for a long time now. I had to stop using it when the weather got really hot. Mangalore city is quite hot and humid and at that time I really don’t like anything on my face except for SPF and face mists or water ! In order to give you a proper idea about this product, I had to restart using it once the climate changed. I’m sure you’ll understand as you read through the review.  So let’s get into the details 🙂

My Take on the Product:
I loved the packaging right from the box in which the bottle of serum was packed to the bottle itself. the colour combination of blue, black and gold gives it a royal look. however the dropper broke while I tried to open it up , which was disappointing, as I had to hunt for a substitute.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>The details of the product are on the bottle itself which I good, as most of the times I throw the packaging and I have to hunt for details online later on.
Serums have been on my mind lately and it is really hard to find good affordable ones. However, the word serum always makes me feel that the product will be light on the skin, will not make the skin feel oily and the consistency would be thinner compared to other products.

The Vitamin C serum is medium in consistency. I have tried a serum from the brand ” the Ordinary” and it was thicker in consistency. I had stopped using the serum as Mangalore is hot and humid and applying serums and then moisturising would just make me feel hot and want to rinse my face off. However the monsoons have begun and its time for the serums and moisturisers!!!

The serum despite being thick, blends into the skin well and vanishes in a few minutes! Obviously, the effects of any serum wont be seen in a day or a week. Try it out for a month or so and you’ll definitely notice an improvement in your skin. The scars fade off and lighten, the fine lines reduce and you will love your skin.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>For those with oily skin, try the serum at night. If you feel it makes your skin feel heavy, don’t use a moisturizer. let the skin get used to your routines and then you can introduce a moisturiser slowly when the weather changes. Monsoons and winters are best for heavy-duty skin care. In summers, stick to basics and try few products.
For those with dry skin, you will love the product and may want to apply a moisturizer as well.

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Pros:
– 100 % organic, vegetarian,Handmade and paraben-free
– Attractive Packaging
– Travel friendly
– Good and affordable product in the serums segment to begin with
– Nice Citric Fragrance
– Gives the skin a glow
– No breakouts and suits all skin type
– Fades dark spots and acne scars

<

p style=”text-align:justify;”>Cons:
– The dropper broke when I tried to fix it.

Overall, the product range from Ryaal is affordable and good for beginners and those who love organic products. I love the products from the brand and look forward to new launches (maybe in the bath and body segment!). Let me know about your experiences with the product and brand 🙂

Hope the review helped you!

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:

<

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!

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!!!!

Product Review-Glamisha Face Wash with Mulberry & Licorice Extracts

I have always been on the look out for a face wash that not just cleanses the skin but also immediately brightens up the skin post the wash. I came across a lot of youtubers trying out and recommending the products from Glamisha and was eager to try these out. The team at Glamisha has been really sweet and they sent over two of their products which have stormed Instagram and Youtube!

The brand Glamisha-Glamourous You! is based in Mumbai , and they bring Luxury Beauty and Personal Care products to the customers. Currently the products under their kitty include face washes, skin brightening cream, face lift cream, hair shampoo and hair conditioner. They are available in combos or single packs.

Mulberries are known for their anti-oxidant properties and may be used to promote a youthful and blemish free complexion. on the other hand, licorice has the power to make your skin brighter. it also helps in treating various skin disorders like eczema and skin rashes.

These two main ingredients in the Face Wash from Glamisha makes it different from the rest.

Price: The Tube is priced at Rs.350 for 100ml.

Shelf Life: 2 years

Packaging: The vibrant colour on the box and tube make the product stand out. Details about the brand, price, quantity, ingredients, directions on usage, etc are mentioned on the box as well as the tube. The product comes in a squeezy tube with a sturdy flip top cap which makes it easy to use.

Product: The face wash has a blue tint. A little product (pea sized drop) is enough to get ur face squeaky clean. It also instantly brightens up your skin, so make sure this face wash is in your bag at all times! The product fragrance is mild and unisex which is a bonus! Post usage, the skin tends to become a little dry, so make sure you use jut the right amount of product. It may not be suitable for dry skin types. However if you till wish to use it, make sure you use a light moisturiser post the face wash to keep your skin soft.

IMG_7526

What the Brand Claims: All the products have pure ingredients, essential oils and extracts which make the products highly effective yet gentle.

My Take on the product: I love this product. The consistency is just right.And in places where the humidity level is high, the skin tends to get oily and look dull. This product brightened up my skin on the first try! and I have been using it for a while now and I love it. I love the fragrance and the colour of the face wash too. Post the face wash, at night, make use of the Glamisha Skin Lightening Cream with Kojic acid Dipalmitate and Arbutin. This will help moisturise and brighten up the skin tone with time.

Pros:

  • The packaging, fragrance and colour of the product are unisex.
  • I love the fragrance of the product
  • The flip top is sturdy and makes it easy to use. No spill-outs.
  • The flip top makes it hygienic to use , the cap doesn’t fall off, locks well.
  • Paraben-free

Cons:

  • The product is priced a little higher than other brands.
  • It isn’t travel-size. So if you love the product, just transfer it into a travel sized bottle and carry it with you.
  • It has SLS and SLES

Where to purchase: The products can be purchased via Amazon.in or their website- www.glamisha.com . However, the website can be accessed only on mobiles.

So be sure to give this one a try, and let me know what you feel about the product.

Also, team Glamisha, Thank you for the products! Looking forward to trying the other products. Also, waiting to see many more products launching under the brand!

Love,

Sonali!
