Holidays Take Their Toll on Your Skin

While you’re drinking and bingeing on food you don’t get enough of the rest of the year, it’s easy to forget about the things you’re putting your body through. Your skin, in particular, suffers from all the fatty, oily, salty, and sweet food you indulge in. You tell yourself you’ll go back to your healthy lifestyle after the holidays, and maybe you can, but for many, this becomes a challenge.



The Holidays can Form a Habit
It takes 21 days to form a habit, and longer to break it. Now think about it in terms of December. Everyone is already in the holiday mood as soon as the month starts, and from there until New Year’s, you have 31 days to eat, drink and make merry. This means plenty of time for you to form unhealthy habits, which you will need to try to kick off at the start of the next year. Now, do you still wonder why it’s hard?


Your Sleep Schedule is Changed 
All those holiday parties and get-togethers with friends lead to later bedtimes and lower quality of sleep. This means you’ll need to do more than use a moisturizer to keep your skin looking its best. Aside from buying moisturizer online, you’ll also need eye creams to get rid of dark circles. The uneven skin tone will also need more attention, and you might even want to change your foundation altogether. These changes wouldn’t have been necessary if you just stuck to a more manageable schedule and gave your body plenty of sleep.



Your Food Intake is Unpredictable
Sometimes, you get more sugar than water. Sometimes, it’s more beer than juices. For food, you may be consuming more fats than protein. All of these changes lead to unhealthy skin and an unhealthy body overall. You don’t think much of it because one of your resolutions for next year is to lose weight anyway, but if you just get a handle on your holiday meals, your new year’s resolution might be easier to achieve without the extra weight you’ve put on in such a short time.



You Use Food as a Way to Dodge Questions
One of the stressful parts of the holidays is seeing your family and being subjected to their scrutiny. It may be a playful banter when you and your friends talk about your weight or lack of savings, but when it’s your family commenting, suddenly you feel like the most incompetent person in the room. To prepare for them during the holidays, you drink copious amounts of liquid courage, and to avoid long conversations, you keep yourself occupied with food. Then there’s also the response of your body to stress, which only exacerbates existing acne problems and lowers your quality of sleep.

There are different ways your skin suffers during the holidays. If you want to start your new year on a good note, end your previous year with good habits and great decisions. A simpler life is one that’s easier on your skin anyway.

Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ Mild | Review

We all know how important it is to wear a sunscreen on daily basis! Using sunscreen regularly has many benefits like protection against sunburn, reducing pigmentation and helping to prevent the early signs of skin aging. Today am going to review the Innisfree Sunscreen which was recommended by Utkarshini and am happy I bought it. Let's head straight to the review.




Brand Claims
A refreshing and moisturizing water-based UV protection cream with a special sunflower formulation. The water-base type UV protection cream has SPF 35++, is enriched with Sunflower oil and Jeju green tea extracts to keep your skin moisturised and hydrated all day long.It improves skin absorption to keep your skin refreshed and protected from harsh sun rays and detrimental environmental conditions.

  • Sunflower oil and Jeju green tea extract protect your skin against UV rays.
  • The water-base type UV protection cream improves skin absorption to keep your skin moisturized and refreshed.
  • Portulaca oleracea and centella asiatica extracts soothe your skin that has been exposed to UV rays and other harmful environmental conditions and offer an astringent effect.
  • Sunflower oil keeps your skin healthy and safe from UV rays.
  • 5-Free system : Free of animal ingredients, mineral oils, artificial coloring, tar dye and talc.


Ingredients - Water, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Butylene Glycol, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Dimethicone, Isoamyl P-Methoxycinnamate, Cyclopentasiloxane, Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Dicaprylyl Carbonate, Octocrylene, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, 1,2-Hexanediol, Polysorbate 60, Behenyl Alcohol, Glyceryl Stearate, Silica, Pentaerythrityl Distearate, Peg-100 Stearate, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Fragrance, Propanediol, Tromethamine, Dimethicone/Vinyl Dimethicone Crosspolymer, Ammonium Acryloyldimethyltaurate/Vp Copolymer, Carbomer, Tocopheryl Acetate, Allantoin, Camellia Sinensis Leaf Extract, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Xanthan Gum, Portulaca Oleracea Extract, Disodium Edta, Centella Asiatica Extract, Biosaccharide Gum-1, Ethylhexylglycerin, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Leaf Extract, Orchid Extract, Opuntia Coccinellifera Fruit Extract, Citrus Unshiu Peel Extract, Camellia Japonica Leaf Extract, Citric Acid, Sodium Benzoate, Potassium Sorbate

My experience
The packaging of the cream is super compact to carry around and the cap fits tightly too. I like the packaging immensely. All the product information has been written in English on another sticker at the backside.



Coming to the product consistency it's a creamy one and white in colour. Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ is a mix of physical and chemical actives to provide sun protection from harmful UVA and UVB rays. It provides UV Protection with 6 ingredients Isoamyl p-Methoxycinnamate, Octocrylene, Ethylhexyl Salicylate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Bis-Ethylhexyloxyphenol Methoxyphenyl Triazine, Titanium Dioxide
Now coming to the application part the cream looks thick and is yet very light weight and it sinks right into the skin after application. It absolutely doesn't leave a white cast (has Titanium Dioxide so) and feels very feathery upon application.

Sometimes I use this sunscreen without using a moisturizer beneath and it works perfectly for me. It has silicone in it so it actually makes the skin feel smooth and soft without a moisturizer. I like using it during the winter season as it sweats a bit during the summer. It has mild protection so it is advised to use in winters or if you are not going to stay out in the sun for a long time. It find it perfect for my oily acne prone skin since it didn't give me any breakouts neither does it make my skin oily after 4 hours. I haven't tried reapplying this sunscreen since I don't stay out in sun for a longer time. Although I am sure it wouldn't be a problem if you reapply it on same layer as before. It will suit all skin types including oily acne prone skin. I like to use a light weight moisturizer beneath it and if am in a hurry I simply apply the sunscreen and am good to go.

Overall speaking I like the Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ Mild as a sunscreen in winters or when am home. Am about to finish my tube and will be repurchasing soon. Although sometimes it's out of stock everywhere online so availability is a bit problem. I am looking for another sunscreen and once I get it I might stop using this one.

Price, Shelf life and Availability - 700 for 50 ml with a shelf life of 4 years. Available on Nykaa, Yesstyle

Recommendation
Innisfree Daily UV Protection Cream SPF 35 PA++ Mild is a very good sunscreen option for oily acne prone skin. It neither leave a white cast nor makes my skin oily after 4 hours. Sometimes I skip moisturizer because this alone is enough for my oily skin. It makes the skin soft and smooth and feels very little on skin. I will be repurchasing it on discount, maybe on Nykaa.

Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash Review

After posting the review of Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash am back with another face wash review of Organic Harvest. As stated earlier Organic Harvest had an offer of free shipping and I picked up two face washes to review here on blog. Today am reviewing Oil Control Face Wash with Orange and Lemons Extracts. I have been the face wash for a couple of weeks and penning my review for you all.




Brand Claims and Ingredients


Packaging, Consistency and Fragrance - The face wash has a flip cap top with a green and white combination tube. The consistency of the face wash is very runny. Once you open the cap and dispense the face wash it will be already on your palm with some extra face wash which you have already squeezed. The colour of the face wash is pale yellow with a lemon or citrus fragrance. The runny consistency makes us use more product in one go but the face wash isn't drying for skin. I don't find the fragrance synthetic and isn't too lingering too.

My experience
The face wash does a fantastic job of cleaning the face while exfoliating it a bit. If you use it more than twice a day it will dry out your skin since it exfoliates a bit. The face wash doesn't lather much and when applied to wet face it disperses soon. So I would suggest you to use normal quantity when using this face wash, because it doesn't lather much don't take more than required quantity.

I did experience some oil control although it also depends on the moisturizer you use afterwards. I didn't expect this face wash to control the oil. It does a good work as a cleanser in double cleansing. This face wash works good according to me when used as a second step into double cleansing as well as when used as a standalone cleanser too. I would not suggest to use this face wash as a morning cleanser since it exfoliates a bit, instead it's a good face wash in double cleansing.

Now the consistency, it's too runny for a face wash, like some liquid soap. As soon as you open the flip cap and turn the tube upside down it will dispense a blob of face wash on your palm. As always we squeeze face wash tubes so I always squeezed extra quantity of face wash due to the consistency.


Price, Availability and Shelf life - 80 INR for 50 gms with a shelf life of 3 years. Available on all major shopping portals.

Recommendation of Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash
Overall speaking I like the Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash with Organic Lemon and Orange extracts. It works as a basic face wash while exfoliating a bit and works great as a second cleanse in double cleansing. Also this works great as a exfoliant so don't include this face wash in the morning routine. I don't like the overtly runny consistency of the face wash. I am going to repurchase a big tube of this face wash once my full stash of foaming cleansers is empty.

Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack Review

A bunch of roses is so alluring and heart warming. Similarly any skincare product with roses is intriguing as well. Coming to today's review, it is about Rose & Mulethi Face Pack by Deyga Organics. I have been using this face pack every since after receiving, as a morning cleanser and on some days as night time cleanser too.



Ingredients - Native rose grains, mulethi, oat meal, skin cherishing essential oils

My experience
I like to use the product more as a cleanser than a face pack. The reason being the non binding particles in the product, because when you try applying as a face pack it keeps on falling and doesn't stick to the face. The product needs to be made in a very runny paste even when you try to apply it as a cleanser. When you try applying the product as a face pack you need to apply a thick layer with which you end up using the product much more than required in one go.

The product has major ingredient as rose grains that is rose powder of full flower I think. If you have ever used a rose petals powder as a scrub you would know that it is absolutely non abrasive yet exfoliating. Similarly this product is absolutely non abrasive and exfoliating in nature. I have used it consistently as a morning Cleanser for 3 weeks and I can easily say it has helped me keep my white heads in check and totally removes the sebaceous filaments which I tend to get on my chin.

This product can easily reduce the white heads and sebaceous filaments which is a problem for oily skin. You can skip double cleansing (provided you haven't applied any makeup) on a particular day if you are lazy and use this product to keep white heads in check. However don't make this a habit of skipping double cleansing every day. You can add any clay to the product and use as a mask.




Price, Shelf life and Availability - 490 INR for 200 gms with a shelf life of 8 months. Available at deyga.in

The In
  • Works on reducing white heads and sebaceous filaments upto a certain extent
  • Non abrasive yet but exfoliating particles of rose petals powder make it a perfect morning cleanser
  • Cleanses the skin while leaving a soft and subtle glowing skin.
  • Fragrance of the product is earthy and not at all much fragrant.
  • Doesn't make the skin dry
  • Product price to quantity is good which makes the product affordable.
  • Value for money product as it works as a three in one Cleanser- Mask- Scrub
  • Will work good for all skin types provided essential oils in the product as mentioned
  • Glass jar can be reused
  • Works slowly and steadily on fading the acne marks due to Mulethi

The Out
  • Full ingredients list not available since label says skin cherishing essential oils. So people with allergy of some essential oils will be able to decide about the product usage
  • Smooth and even application as face pack is difficult

Recommendation Of Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack
Overall speaking Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack works great as a multi utility product as a cleanser, scrub and pack. However I like to use it as a morning cleanser which cleanses the skin without stripping the skin oil. It also makes the skin soft and smooth while making it glow. This product can easily keep white heads in check with regular usage however it can't get rid of them fully. So if you are looking for a 3-in-1 product you can get the affordable and super simple Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack.

Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash Review

Organic Harvest had an offer of free shipping with no minimum cart value some time back. So I picked up two face washes to review here on blog. The one am reviewing today is Neem and Tea Tree variant, another one I will review next time. I have been using both the face washes for a couple of weeks and here is my review.


Brand Claims and Ingredients of Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash


Packaging, Consistency and Fragrance -
The face wash is housed in a flip cap top with a green and white combination tube. The consistency of the face wash is very runny. As soon as you open the cap and try to dispense the face wash it will be already on your palm with some extra face wash which you have already squeezed as per your habit. The colour of the face wash is green, but dark hue just to show us how the neem extracts are actually present in the face wash. Am honestly not impressed with the colour as well as the consistency of the face wash. The runny consistency makes us use more product in one go and thus either drying out the skin or just wasting the extra face wash. The fragrance of the face wash is like neem, which I would say is like synthetic sort but doesn't bother much.

My experience of Organic Harvest Face Wash
Now I picked this face wash due to it's ingredients Neem and Tea Tree. The face wash does a basic job of cleaning the face. If you use it more than twice a day it's bound to dry out your skin. The face wash doesn't lather much and when applied to wet face it disperses soon. So I would suggest you to use normal quantity when using this face wash, because it doesn't lather much don't take more than required quantity.

I didn't experience any acne control while using this face wash. I don't expect any face wash to control my acne, but it should at least not dry out my skin or work as a good cleanser in double cleansing. This face wash fairs ok according to me when used as a second step into double cleansing. I felt like it doesn't remove all the traces of the balm am using. And I have tried a lot of balms to check whether it works well with any one of them, but results have been same. I would say use this face wash as a standalone product without including it in your double cleansing routine.

Now the consistency, it's too runny for a face wash, like some liquid soap. As soon as you open the flip cap and turn the tube upside down it will dispense a blob of face wash on your palm. As always we squeeze face wash tubes so I always squeezed extra quantity of face wash due to the consistency. On some occasions I have even tried to put the extra face wash back into the tube by blowing up the tube so that I don't waste the product or the excess product doesn't dry out my skin. Also since the consideration is very runny, I was surprised to see the tubes when I received them. They were all flat on top of the tube and in transit all the face wash was deposited near the flip cap top. 


Price, Availability and Shelf life - 80 INR for 50 gms with a shelf life of 3 years. Available on all major shopping portals.

Recommendation of Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash
Overall speaking am not much impressed with Organic Harvest  Acne Control Face Wash with Organic Neem and Tea Tree extracts. It works as a basic face wash, but over using it will dry out the oily skin. Also this works great as a single cleanse rather than using as a second step in double cleansing. It doesn't remove the balm or oil cleanser used in first step. I also have a lot of problem with the overtly runny consistency of the face wash.

Best Face Oils in India with Price

Facial oils are becoming a rage not only in skincare world but also in makeup world. This skincare star on the block has a lot to offer. A good facial oil gets absorbed by the skin easily and hydrates the skin insanely. Facial oils lock in the moisturise and prevent dryness or dehydration thus preventing the need, to use moisturisers often. Facial oils are light weight in their purest forms, thus easy to absorb. If you are already using a moisturiser, you can still use a facial oil on top of it provided you are aware of Skincare Layering. Dermatologists say you can apply oil either before or after your daytime moisturiser or night cream. Moreover you can even blend them into your moisturiser and use. They are that easy and flexible to use.

Facial oils also offer antioxidants, which provide repairing and corrective measures. Specific plant oils like Rosehip, Grapeseed are high in anti oxidants thereby neutralising the free radicals responsible for skin damage. They perform a dual job of moisturising as well as anti ageing.

Makeup gurus often use few drops of oils before setting their makeup to give a dewy look and finish to the makeup. Applying oil before setting your makeup makes your skin plump and even toned skin thus acting as a primer. Some makeup addicts even add a few drops of oil, to their mattifying foundation to achieve a dewy look without having to reach out to many products.

Best Face Massage Cream for Oily Skin

Ever since I won a giveaway on a blog I have been into face massages, Ask how? Because I won a face massage cream in that giveaway. I was very new into skincare that time and face massage was a very new concept to me. The very first face massage cream I used was The Nature's Co Multi Vitamin Face Massage Cream. At that time I used to just massage my face with an upward stroke here and there but now I do follow some face massage techniques which help me in getting rid of the acne marks left by the pesky acne.

A good face massage is relaxing and invigorating for the skin. A facial massage can greatly enhance the skin's appearance. Facial massage is beneficial in increasing the blood flow, leading to decreased puffiness and improved circulation. A good facial massage helps in getting a radiant and glowing skin. Massaging the facial skin aids in relaxing the muscles.The stimulation of the skin results in increased blood circulation, which helps produce collagen and elastin. A facial massage can be considered as a workout for the facial skin. It detoxifies the skin via lymphatic drainage. A good facial massage doesn't involve rubbing or pulling the skin, rather it should be gentle and relaxing.

As much as the technique followed for the massage is important, it is also important to use a good face massage cream. A face massage cream can penetrate the skin and help in healing or lightening of the acne marks, reduce fine lines and improve the texture of the skin. So today we will be looking at the list of Best Face Massage Creams for Oily Skin.

Moolit Beauty Ubtan & Mylk Review

It was Moolit Beauty Birthday and I had to get something since the discount was also good. So I grabbed Ubtan & Mylk during their birthday sale. Sunshine in a pot, if I may address this product as. I really like the concoction of this product to be honest. Frankly speaking I didn't enjoy using it much. Let's head to the review.




Ingredients- California Almonds, Glycerine esters, Lakadong Turmeric root, Organic Kashmiri Saffron, Tocopherol

Ingredient Goodness - Lakadong turmeric Root - known to be the best in the world for its highest curcumin content. Curcumin found in turmeric helps fight anti ageing and anti oxidant.Saffron - helps in glowing skin while treating blemishes and pigmentation.

Price, Availability- 750 INR for 50 ml, shop via link of Instagram profile of @moolitbeauty
Consistency - depends on the weather you have at your place. Thin if you live in hot weather, thick in cool places!
Fragrance - Fragrance is of almonds, nothing less than a dessert.
Packaging - amber coloured glass jar which I find classy

Method of usage (my way) - If the product is thick, wet your face with some water and make a small ball out of the ubtan and swipe over your face like you would swipe a cotton ball. If the weather is hot at your place simply massage the paste on your face.

My experience Of Moolit Beauty Ubtan & Mylk
The product cleans the skin nicely of the dirt and grime revealing a luminous glowing skin. I have also used the product to remove my sunscreen and it worked quite well. I feel one should use it as a standalone skin cleanser instead of using it as a makeup remover or for removing sunscreen (ingredients' goodness). While removing the Ubtan & Mylk you need to use some water and it emulsifies into a milky consistency without any greasy residue!!

The product has some amazing ingredients including Lakdong turmeric root and saffron to combat suntan and pigmentation. As of now am not suffering from any of these so can't comment on it. Although one thing is sure it does glow up the skin.
Being said that, am not happy with the application part. I am using powder cleansers since 2 and half year to be precise. The thin paste consistency without any particles in it is not my type. Am used to the grainy feeling of a powder cleanser on my face since long. The product is such a beautiful concoction of ingredients that I don't feel like using it on face. However I will slowly finish the product.

Recommendation
I would recommend it to anyone who is looking at fighting pigmentation or suntan due to the ingredients' goodness inside. Also people who don't like using grainy texture on skin can definitely go for this Ubtan & Mylk.

Dermafique Face Wash
I picked this up in Health and Glow near me. I have picked this up purely to review on the blog.

Mitvana Neem Face Wash
Again this one I picked up to review on blog especially to have some variety on blog in regards to brands. This is helpful face wash in terms of fungal acne.

This serum too I picked up in an offline store. Vilvah is retailing in a store near me and so I dropped in by to check and bought this. It's on of the best seller products from Vilvah.

Organic Gypsy Calendula Cleanser
I wanted to try this powder cleanser since am bored of using mine so I bought this too.

I love using this gel, most of the times I use on hair. So this time I decided to use on skin also.

Biotique Bio Quince Massage Cream
My favorite massage cream, my earlier massage cream which I reviewed on blog expired and I didn't even know. So I picked this one from a hyper market near my home.

Ponds Super Light Gel Oil Free Moisturizer
I am struggling with fungal acne or something like that it is really hard. I bought this moisturizer by reading the ingredients and doing some check online whether this moisturizer is really oil free or not. This is a bomb moisturizer currently for my skin. This is not fungal acne safe it seems. I am using it and facing some problems, will update my review soon.

PR Samples
I received two products from Earthy By Ellenza viz. Anti acne gel and Saffron Gel. Out of the two I have already reviewed the Saffron gel on Instagram. I will also review the Anti Acne gel soon.


Juicy Chemistry was kind enough to send me Deodorant and Eye cream for the review. I am using the eye cream on and off and will review both the products soon.

Gifts by Instagram friends
I received so many gifts around my birthday and for Diwali. To be honest I was very touched to receive each and every gift. Let's get started.


Shreemayee gifted me a handmade terracotta set of which is a specialty of Kolkata. I really liked the neck piece as well as earrings. She has also gifted me a cute basket with some Styrofoam flowers. Actually I had asked her about the Styrofoam flowers she uses in her pics and she remembered it and sent me the same. Such a thoughtful gift this is.


Mousumi gifted me Juicy Chemistry Aloe Lemon Mist, Juicy Chemistry lip scrub and Juicy Chemistry Potato, Tomato & Lemongrass Soap. Mousumi surely spoilt me with these gifts as I wouldn't have bought any Juicy Chemistry product keeping in mind the price.


Strings Of Fortune Anklets were gifted to me by Lavanya. I was already eyeing them and was often forgetting them to order, before I could order I received them as gift. Thank you Lavs.


Hiral from pepilio blog gifted me Zofla Rose Water and Vetiver Water. She likes these products a lot and so she gifted me the same. I am sure am going to love the Zofla products.

Praveena gifted me shampoo bar and shampoo conditioner form Mystic Naturals. I was already thinking of using a shampoo bar and I will soon be reviewing it. Thank you so much Praveena for this zero waste gift.

So this was a huge list Haul, PR and gifts for the month of August, September and October. I will soon be reviewing some products on the blog and some on Instagram. Stay tuned.

Bon Organics Aloe Vera Face Wash Review

Hi,

Today am reviewing the Bon Organics Aloe vera organic face wash. I have been using it on and off since past 6 months. I got it from a fellow blogger and friend Ishani from @earthymuse. Let's take a look at the review of the face wash.



Ingredients - Saponified Organic castor oil, Almond oil, Sunflower oil, Organic Coconut oil, Vitamin E, Extract of organic Lemon oil, Aloe Vera gel, Neem oil, Basil leaves & Demineralised water. Vegetable based Organic contents only. Contains No Harsh Chemicals, No alcohol, No animal products, or sulphates.

Packaging, Fragrance, Consistency-
The packaging is bit bulky, they have two sizes 200 ml and 100 ml. The face wash is housed in an amber coloured plastic bottle with a flip cap top. The fragrance of the face wash is exactly like the green medimix ayurvedic soap which I have used many years ago. The fragrance isn't lingering and not much bothering too. Coming to the consistency, the face wash is literally like water. If you dispense it, at one time you get too much quantity, or if you try to control the quantity you get less.

Bon Organics Aloe Vera Face Wash Review


When used as a single cleanse, it helps to clean the skin without any stretchy feeling. Although please remember to use less quantity and foam it as much as you can on your palm and then use. The foam disperses easily and it doesn't take too long to wash it off. When using in a double cleanse routine, make sure to use a little more quantity than usual. According to my experience I couldn't wash off my Neem balm properly with little quantity of Bon Organics Aloe Face Wash. Although this can differ in case of another balm or oil cleanser.

The face wash is a good option as a standalone product for combination, normal or oily skin type. You can also include it in double cleansing routine. I was too bored later on to use this big pack, so I might opt for Tea Tree and Neem variant they have in 100 ml 😅. Barring the consistency I don't have any complains regarding this face wash. It does not dry out the skin when used twice a day. Do not use more than twice a day as it may dry out the skin.


Price, Shelf life and Availability - 470 INR for 200 gms with a shelf life of 2 years from date of manufacturing. Available on bonorganics.com

Recommendation -  Bon Organics Aloe Vera Face Wash is a good organic face wash if you are looking for something to include in your skincare routine. It works well as a single cleanse as well as a good one in double cleansing as a second cleanser. Moreover the product is free from sulphates and is good to go. I was literally at wits end while finishing this huge quantity of 200 gms. I however do not like the runny consistency of the face wash. Barring that it is a good face wash. Pick it up if you have normal, combination or oily skin. I hope you find  Bon Organics Aloe Vera Face Wash Review helpful!
