What's in my Travel Skincare bag?

Hello All,

I have been MIA since last week as I am travelling and will continue to travel till mid Match. But I thought of updating the blog since I have many pending posts. Also I will continue commenting on your blog posts as and when I get time.


So coming back to the post I wanted to share this post from a long time. After becoming a skincare fanatic a lot of things I carry have changed and so I think this is the right time to share the post. So let's see what all I have in my bag.


Ethicare Remedies Dwash Moisturising Face wash
In Bangalore my skin was very flaky, so I carried this facewash, and my skin turned normal once I reached Pune. So I plan to use this facewash until I empty it.

Bon Organics Jasmine water
Long back I ditched toners and my skin is totally loving it. I bought Bon Organics Jasmine water which was a part of my haul this Valentine's. I enjoy using this Jasmine water with the onset of summer because as and when I sweat the skin exudes a hint of Jasmine which is very refreshing.

Iraya Lotus Seed Cleansing Milk
Another new favorite and a sure shot repurchase. However the pump packaging makes it a bit non travel friendly, still I carried it. The Cleansing milk gets absorbed like a charm and leaves the skin clean and fresh.

Votre Absolute Hydration Moisturiser
I carried this travel size moisturiser with me and skipped carrying separate day and night cream. Also I want to empty it, hence for some 25 day travel plan this seemed appropriate.

Auravedic Anti Blemish face mask
During travelling I rarely get breakouts, still I thought of carrying my hg face mask. Now I am thankful of my own decision as I have some small bumps on my face due to weather changes during travel.

TBS British Rose Body Scrub
The bulky packaging of TBS British Rose Body Scrub is a big problem. I regularly use this scrub as a face scrub. I thought of carrying around some quantity in an empty container of The Nature's Co Bearberry Liquorice cream. The scrub is very effective and I will soon review the product.

The Nature's Co Multivitamin Massage cream
Another favourite and a must have for me no matter where I am. The massage cream moisturises, nourishes the facial skin while imparting a glow and reducing the blemishes. Full review will be up soon, so stay tuned for this.

Ida Naturals Anise Clove Lip balm
With the weather changing I knew my lips would suffer the most, so am carrying this sure shot winner from Ida Naturals which not only moisturises the lips but also heals and revives them.

VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry lip balm
I am carrying this lip balm for a special occasion, but the plans were changed at the last moment. However I just love using tinted lip balms, hence this is in my bag.

Mantra Ashwagandha and Cinnamon Body wash
A good body wash with a spicy fragrance and great cleansing. I am carrying this body wash as it's on my empties list. I will post a full review of this soon.



Apart from these I carried doctor cotton, Kronokare Provincial Lavender body lotion and blackhead extractor in my bag. Apart from these I also carried the Bon Organics Aloe Shampoo, Iraya Keshvardhak taila, Rosemary Essential oil and Figaro Olive oil with me. Also some things I regret for not carrying around is Himalaya Herbals foot cream and Iraya Almond Nutrifying skin food. BTW, the bag you see in the image is stitched by my Mom and I have already told her to stitch another one. She has stitched it with sponge inside so usually glass packaging products can be safe.

So this is all what I am carrying in my bag. What all do you carry in your travel skincare bag?

Skincare and Haircare Empties #5

Another empties post and am already loving the look of my drawer 😁. I like to do an empties post because when I decide to do the post I automatically empty more products. Without wasting more time let's head straight to the post. Many products from the list are my favourite barring a few, so this can also be called as a favorite cum empty list.. πŸ˜€.


Himalaya Herbals Revitalizing Night cream
My first night cream and already loving the effects on my face. I can't thank enough Nivedita for recommending me this. It is a perfect night cream which hydrates and moisturises my oily skin while lightening my acne marks as well as pigmentation. Moreover, the price is quite pocket friendly and this tub lasted me exactly 3 months. As always it's on discount on Apni Dukaan, Amazon πŸ˜›πŸ˜›πŸ˜›. Highly recommended night cream for oily acne prone skinned beauties.

Kama Ayurveda Rose water
The name says it all. A perfect example of what a Pure rose water can do to your skin. It's a must try for skincare addicts although many find it pricey, but once in your kitty you won't regret even one penny 😊. Highly recommended Pure Rosé water from Kama Ayurveda. Currently I haven't repurchased as I am testing one rose hydrosol which is as effective as a rose water. Stay tuned for it's review.

Bajaj Normarks facewash
Again my HG facewash. Sometimes i think some Indian brands are underrated in this so called branded skincare world. Bajaj Normarks facewash has shown a visible difference to my skin when it was at it's worst. It gives a temporary even toned skin and actually clears up acne with regular use. I have a already reviewed the old packaging product and here in pics this is the new packaging. Going to stock on it for my skin.

Burst of Happyness What A Girl Wants Cleanser
Again a HG facemask, actually it's a cleanser but I use it as a facemask. I had received it as a PR sample and this big tub lasted me 1 year, can you believe it... I myself think it's unbelievable, but it's true. Loaded with goodness of tea tree and Lavender essential oils it calms and fades acne like a magic wand. I will be stocking up on it as soon as I finish up some of my face masks.

Mantra Herbals Palma, Christi Olive Hair cleanser
Mantra Herbals Palma, Christi Olive Hair cleanser is an amazing hair cleanser if you don't get the time to oil your hair as it down dry out the hair at all. However when you oil it doesn't remove the oil but cleanses the scalp without drying it. Overall a good cleanser to try out but I find it pricey and won't be repurchasing.

Natural Bath and Body Vitamin E Whipped cream
Initially I was very impressed with this cream but as the winter season pitched in my skin started turning dry. However I was determined to make this one to the empties list so have used this on and off this winter season. I wouldn't be repurchasing however as I have some other creams on my stash.

Kallos Deep Pore Cleansing Milk
I like using Cleansing milks and this one didn't disappoint me apart from the paraben tag. Kallos Deep Pore cleansing Milk would be a good one to try for a change. Decently priced but not readily available offline.

Iraya Keshvardhak Taila
I was looking for a good hair oil and Iraya seemed to fit the bill in terms of price, availability and purity. I have been using this hair oil from November and it has reduced my hair fall to a certain extent like you can say reduced 50% of hair fall. It is cold pressed coconut oil infused with herbs and am already on my second bottle. Will be posting a full review soon so stay tuned for that.

Himalaya Herbals Nourishing body lotion
I loved how intense moisturization this body lotion gave my dry, flaky skin this winter season. A must try for Himalaya Herbals fanatics as well as the fragrance is very great.

From the above list the products which totally worked for me would be the night cream, Rose water, Clay cleanser and Facewash. I will be repurchasing these whenever I get a chance but as of now no new shopping and all as I already have many products to review and try out.

Have you tried any products from above list? Share with me your favourites...

VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry lip balm Review

I am always on the lookout of a good tinted lip balm because I am not at all comfortable wearing a lipstick. I rarely wear a lipstick, last being 4 and half years ago during my marriage. Anyways, a tinted lip balm goes a long way in moisturization as well as hiding the pigmented lips while leaving a little stain behind. Today's review is about VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry lip balm.


Brand claims and Ingredients

My experience
The packaging is a twist up mechanism lip balm with a transparent top cover. The cap fits in and you can easily carry around this lip balm. The twist up mechanism also works perfectly, which is a major concern of all girls. Expiry date is printed on lip balm, so we don't need to preserve the packaging as we need to do with Maybelline ones πŸ˜›. The lip balm also bears all the information except brand claims (not like MaybellineπŸ˜›). For those who feel key ingredients don't have sunscreen mentioned it's benzophenone-3

The lip balm glides amazingly on the lips while leaving a faint cherry colour on the lips. The lip balm is not at all waxy rather being more on the buttery side. You need just one swipe for soft, smooth lips. If you are looking for some intense colour then you might be a bit disappointed. However the brand doesn't claim to give an intense colour so that's not a problem.




The fragrance of the lip balm is almost negligible. If you sniff the lip balm directly it will be a bit cherry sort of fragrance. After application the fragrance fades away and I like things which don't have much fragrance. The lip balm moisturises for around 4-5 hours and makes the lips soft and smooth. The lips appear hydrated and reapplication is needed after 5 hours. The colour however lasts less than even 1 hour. But since the brand doesn't claim any wear time, it shouldn't be a concern.


The In
  • Contains Jojoba oil, Almond oil and Vitamin E
  • Nice cherry coloured lip balm
  • Has SPF 15
  • Gives a glossy shine to the lips
  • Moisturises for 4-5 hours after which reapplication is needed
  • Makes lips soft and smooth from first use itself
  • Affordable price and travel friendly
  • No need to check package for expiry date and ingredients

The Out
  • Only key ingredients mentioned
Price, Shelf life and Availability
125 INR for 4.5 gms with a use before date of 8/2019. Easily available online as well as in stores. Buy here

Recommendation
If you are looking for an affordable lip balm with tint then VLCC Lovable Lips Cherry lip balm is for you. I like the fact that expiry date is printed on lip balm as preserving the package for expiry date is not my thing. Also the lip balm does it jib perfectly while leaving a tint behind. However SPF ingredients in key ingredients must be specified and full ingredients also.

DIY Oats Almond Cleanser, Facemask All in one recipe

We all love budget friendly yet effective skincare products. Moreover with the new surge of organic, natural products we even live splurging few bucks more. But let's be honest, each and every product cannot be replaced by a natural, organic product. Some products with chemicals also work well on our skincare. We cannot ignore chemicals but we can certainly reduce then by using products with lesser chemicals and trying some simple yet effective DIYs.



Today am going to share a simple cleanser DIY plus face mask plus exfoliater recipe with you all. I have earlier written a post on Oats and Cocoa DIY. This one is on similar lines with some twist and essential oils. Let's get started with it and see what all we need. Some ingredients are purely optional and you can tweak the recipe as per your choice. The main Ingredients however are not be changed. I have used this recipe daily for around 3 weeks and currently as I write this post its my 4th week of usage.

We will require

  • 2 parts of oats (finely ground)
  • 1 part Almond (finely ground)
  • 2 parts dried rose petals (optional)
  • Pure Almond oil as per your requirement
  • Rosemary Essential oil (optional)

Process
I have finely ground all the dry ingredients and added some Almond oil to it. But the Almond oil just gets soaked up.

How I use it?
1) As stated earlier I have added some Almond oil to the cleanser. I take a small quantity around just two pinches and add water to make a paste and use it as a cleanser at night. Post that I apply my night cream.

2) Sometimes I add some Almond oil to two pinches of the cleanser and add some water as well. I massage my skin lightly and wash with water and skip my night cream.

3) I take some amount of cleanser and add milk to it. I apply a mask of it and leave till it's semi dry. I wash it with water while gently massaging my skin.

4) Sometimes I take around half a tbsp of cleanser and add only 1 drop of rosemary essential oil and massage my skin and wash it off, leaving it overnight.

The effects
1) I have experienced fewer breakouts after using the DIY for around 1 week regular usage.

2) My skin is a bit even toned on the cheeks where it is very bumpy.

3) It gives a smooth and soft finish to my skin when used as a mask.

4) It has also helped me reduce the sensitivity around the nose which gets irritated with artificial scrubs sometimes.

While using essential oil make sure to test for sensitivity and add only one drop to some amount of the cleanser. Do not add more quantity. The Rose petals, essential oil and Almond oil are purely optional. But oats tend to dry out the skin sometimes so I have added the moisturising agents. You can even take more quantity of Almonds to oats to reduce the drying effect if you have dry skin.

Enough of my blah now, let me know if you try this or are up for orders of this cleanser πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰πŸ˜›πŸ˜›!!

VLCC Indian Berberry Face Scrub Review

Skincare involves many steps and one important being scrubbing. With this step you can wrong if you overdo it as well as under do it. Scrubs have evolved over the ages from delicate facial scrubs to natural ones as well as the ones for the body as well. Today we are looking into the VLCC Indian Berberry Face Scrub meant for all skin types.


Brand claims and ingredients



My experience
From the pictures, you can see the scrub is packed in a transparent flip cap tube. Transparent packaging helps to check the quantity of the product and this packaging is very travel friendly and hygienic as opposed to scrubs in tub form.

The product has a distinct berry fragrance and is a little thick in consistency. The scrub has walnut particles which are tiny in size. This makes more appropriate for facial exfoliation rather than the body. The scrub contains Kaolin and this is the first time am using a clay based scrub.

The scrub is very effective in terms of exfoliating dead skin cells and white heads. It leaves the skin smooth but with a little but of dryness. Since the weather is already acting up this scrub would be appropriate for summers. The skin is left a but glowing( maybe due to Kaolin clay) and papers radiant for a while. If you plan to use the scrub as per the directions of usage given on the pack, I would suggest adding some water so that the scrub isn't abrasive on the skin. If you are working on a smaller area like just nose, the scrub need not be added with water. But for larger area adding water or rose water is recommended. Overall I am highly impressed with the scrub for remove black heads and dead skin cells. The appearance of the black heads is also minimized by this scrub.



The In
  • Attractive, travel friendly packaging
  • Budget friendly product
  • Contains Kaolin, Walnut shell powder, papaya powder, Indian Berberry
  • Small quantity goes a long way so product lasts longer
  • Reduces the appearance of black heads
  • Removes dead skin cells and dirt effectively
  • Suits oily acne prone skin in summers
  • Makes the skin smooth and refreshed
  • Gives a radiant skin for some time
  • Small walnut particles make it appropriate as a facial scrub
The Out
  • Might not suit dry skin
  • No full ingredients mentioned as cream base is mentioned in ingredients list
  • Doesn't remove black heads as per the claims

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 220 INR for 80 gms with a shelf life of 3 years. Mostly available on discounts on major shopping portals. Also available in stores.

Recommendation
I would recommend the VLCC Indian Berberry Face scrub for its efficiency in removing dead skin cells without being harsh. The product being travel friendly as well as budget friendly will only suite oily skin. Dry skinned beauties will have to skip it as it contains Kaolin clay which may aggravate the dryness of the skin.

Valentine's Day gift from me to myself

I always say 'So many brands and so little time to try all of them'. Being a skincare junkie from the past one year, I am comfortable with my skincare routine. But I always like to try new brands and innovative products. One such brand which was in my wishlist for really long time is Bon Organics 😊. I always wanted to try their shampoo, but when I tried placing an order due to some bank issue, couldn't place an order. Next day I added Jasmine water also to the cart and tried net banking and my payment went through πŸ˜€.


So the point here is that, I just randomly picked the Jasmine water and tried it. I am absolutely glad I ordered it ❤️❤️. Along with it I also the Aloe Shampoo and Aloe Vera with tea tree. Let's see how I have started loving all the three products. Yes, detailed reviews will be up soon. So stay tuned for that!


Aloe Vera shampoo
Priced at 126 INR for 100ml
Bon Organics Aloe Shampoo is one of the most effective ones I have tried till date. It cleanses oiled hair in one go and doesn't dry out the hair. Moreover the major concern of all beauties, it reduces the hairfall you shed in shower. Overall a highly recommended shampoo but still I will be posting more thoughts on this in detailed review.


Aloe Vera Gel with tea tree
Priced at 174 INR for 100gms
Aloe Vera as well all know is an excellent moisturiser, but I used it on my hair and it surprisingly reduced my dandruff. I never expected that! I occasionally use it on my skin and so far I have tamed small bumps on my skin.


Jasmine water
Priced at 118 INR for 40ml
My favorite product from the haul, never planned to buy one, but thanks to my fate and mind I picked in this one. I totally love the hydrating and timing effects of this floral water. Long back I ditched toners and totally loving the change. Moreover this water is fortified with Vitamin e and sweet vanilla which makes the floral water more mesmerizing than ever.

So this is all what I ordered. Next on my cards is their facewash range and soap range. One thing I would like to specifically mention is that all Bon Organics products are decently priced and they charge zero shipping charges across India. This seems to be the USP of the brand apart from the fact that they believe in preserving their South Indian traditions.

I feel I have already wasted so many days without trying this brand, but it's better late than never. So henceforth you may always see once in a while haul and detailed reviews of Bon Organics products.

Rooted Rhassoul Clay Review

Clays are used since ages to treat skin as well as hair. Moreover each clay has some special properties and are used for specific purposes. One common thing about all clays is that they absorb toxins, dirt while reducing sebum and leaving behind thoroughly cleansed skin. Let's see the review of Rooted Rhassoul Clay



Brand claims - Nature's own awesome face mask and mud wrap. Mined in the Atlas mountains in Morocco, this nature's wonder is rich in minerals like silica, iron, magnesium, potassium and sodium. An extremely gentle cleaner, it is suitable for all skin types, including sensitive, acne prone skin. Wonderful to keep blackheads at bay. Will give you a soft glow immediately after use.

Directions for usage -
Combine with our rosewater hydrosol and honey for a quick and easy DIY.

Ingredients - Moroccan Rhassoul Clay

My experience
The product is packed in a plastic tub with screw top. Beneath the screw top there is inner lid to prevent leakage or product wastage. It is a very convenient packaging which allows us to take the product via wooden spoon or spatula. The clay is beige in colour and an earthy fragrance very minimal though.

I applied a thin layer of the clay made by combined the Rooted Rose Water Hydrosol. I washed off the mask after the it was semi dry, I usually do that will all face masks. As the face mask dries up the clay gives a stretchy feeling. If used continuously every alternate day it dries up the skin a bit, but nothing which a moisturiser or a cream can cure. So this would be ideal for summers and for oily acne prone skin.

After washing off the face mask the black heads on my nose appeared less prominent. My face was glowing and skin looked clear. My skin had an even tone which lasted for around 3-4 hours and white heads seemed less oily. It also softens the dead skin cells which can be exfoliated using a soft towel. I thoroughly enjoyed using the Rhassoul Clay. I have used clay based products in the past but this was my first time experience of using a standalone clay, barring Multani Mitti. Rooted Rhassoul Clay would be great product for oily acne prone skin during summers.



The In 

  • Absorbs impurities and toxins from skin (basic quality of a clay)
  • Gives bright and glowing skin, temporarily
  • Black heads appear less prominent after just one use of it
  • Removes excess sebum 
  • Thoroughly cleanses the skin and leaves it soft
  • Softens the dead skin for easy exfoliating
  • A thin layer of mask does the trick so little goes a long way
  • Can be used for DIY as you like it

The Out

  • Might dry out the skin if used excessively

Price, shelf life and Availability - 375 INR for 50gms with a shelf life of 1 years. Available on rootedstore.com

Recommendation
I would highly recommend the Rooted Rhassoul Clay for removing the impurities and absorbing the toxins from the facial skin. Moreover they make the appearance of black heads less prominent. It can also be used with essential oils like tea tree and Rosemary to heal and cure acne. Skincare Villa highly recommends use of Rooted Rhassoul Clay.

Tvakh Soy and Green Tea Hydrating Cleansing Foam Review

We all know how beneficial is green tea for health as well as our skin. Let's checkout the review of Tvakh Soy and Green Tea Hydrating Cleansing Foam. This is the first time I am using a foam, yes the cleanser is a foam πŸ˜‰.


Brand claims - Soy and Green Tea Hydrating face wash pleasingly removes dirt, dead skin cells, excessive sebum and make-up, without over drying to leave your complexion clean, hydrated and refreshed. This non irritating formula is infused with Green Tea water that fights free radicals and boosts your skin with fresh dose of antioxidants, while Soy Lecithin, Daisy Flower extract and Aloe Vera reinforce skin's natural moisture barrier by maintaining the right pH balance.

Ingredients -Aqua,Aloe Barbadensis (Aloe) Leaf Juice, Sodium Lauryl Sacrossinate, Soy Lecithin, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Camellia Sinensis(Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Glycerin, Bellis Perennis (Daisy) Flower Extract, Salicylic acid, Sodium PCA, Polyquaternium-7, Phnoxyethanol, Polysorbate-20, Citric Acid and Parfum.


My experience-
The product is packed in a pump up bottle with a cap. No sooner you pump up the cleanser a foam is generated within automatically and all you get is a foam on your palm. I was at first amazed at this mechanism and totally love it. Sometimes when you keep the bottle in horizontal position for a long time it leaks out the cleanser. Also the bottle is bulky making it a bit non travel friendly.

The foam once it's on my palm, I again lather it up using some water. It nicely lathers up on hands and as soon as you try getting the lather onto your face it disperses. The foam has a refreshing fragrance of green tea and has subtle notes of some artificial fragrance as well. No wonder it is because it contains added perfume.

The foam nicely cleanses the face leaving it thoroughly cleaned and refreshed at the same time. I am noticing a nice glow after using this Cleansing Foam for around 15 days, day and night. The foam gets washed off easily mainly because it disperses as soon as you try rubbing it on your face.

As for the effects of the Cleansing Foam on my face, some small bumps on my face have disappeared with continuous usage. The nose sensitivity around my nose has also decreased a bit. Howover I limit the usage of the Cleansing Foam to maximum twice per day. After using the foam, moisturiser is not to be skipped. Overall I would say Tvakh Soy and Green Tea Hydrating Cleansing Foam has played a major role in getting my skin clear while reducing the small bumps on my face. A recommendable product for oily acne prone skin all around the year.



The In
  • Contains Green Tea, Soy Lecithin, Aloe Vera, Salicylic acid
  • Paraben free, SLS free formula
  • Cleanses the skin thoroughly and keeps it refreshed
  • Reduces acne and prevents further breakouts
  • Gives a temporary glow to the skin
  • Has amazing fresh fragrance
The Out
  • Contains perfume
  • Might be drying for dry skinned beauties
  • Bulky packaging makes it non travel friendly

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 395 INR for 100 ml with a shelf life of 2 years. Available on www.tvakhindia.com

Recommendation
Tvakh Soy and Green Tea Hydrating Cleansing Foam would be an ideal cleansing foam for oily and acne prone skin for all the seasons. It helps you to get a clear skin while reducing the breakouts. However dry skin and sensitive skin people might have to skip this one. You might want to give it a try if you are in for some Green Tea indulgence for skin.
