Acne prone skin requires special care and there can not be lagging back or laziness in this. As much as skincare plays an important role in keeping the skin healthy so is internal health of our body. We will talk about that later but first let us check about some good face masks for acne prone skin. Including a good face mask in your routine is very crucial step as face masks suck out the dirt from the face help in revitalising and rejuvenating the facial skin.

All the below mentioned face masks are really good in treating acne and have shown some amazing effects on my skin. Each mask mentioned below is personally tried by me over a couple of months. I am using Plum Green Tea Mask over a 2 years now and it is a constant.


Now let's get started with the list of Best Face Mask for acne In India

Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask
Plum Green Tea Clear Face Mask is a little heavy on pockets but is worth every penny, also it is often on discounts. It makes the skin instantly smooth, soft, clean and bright. The mask when used after some days gives a bit of tingling sensation and it's all because of the glycolic acid it has which is beneficial for acne prone skin. Plum Green Tea Mask contains Kaolin, Bentonite, Green Tea extracts, Glycolic acid. It shows results from first use itself and if you are into vegan skincare do give this product a try.

It not only helps remove impurities but also banishes acne. It can also double up as a cleanser in summer season. What's more? Quantity goes a long way and regular usage may last upto 3-4 months.

I am quite sure this product won't disappoint you at all.

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.

Skincare, Haircare Haul, PR, gifts for August, September, October 2019

Hello,

I have missed out on posting what all I bought since the month of August 2019. So the following is a cumulative haul of August, September, October 2019. If I buy something till October end I will just add to the list. Also I received gifts from a few friends on Instagram so I am mentioning that too. Some products I have picked up without an impetus and some were planned although am trying not to exceed my limit of shopping. Also I have emptied quite a few products so stay tuned for a huge empties list too. As of now let's get started.


Moolit Beauty Ubtan & Mylk
It was Moolit's Birthday sale and I had to get something, since the discount was a good one, I picked Ubtan & Mylk. I have reviewed it in detail on Instagram and would do soon on blog too.

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.

Vilvah Beautifying Serum
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.

Raw Beauty Lip Balm
I wanted to try something from Raw Beauty so I ordered this one. Su sent me hair pack free with this which I have already reviewed on the blog 


Satthwa Argan Oil Shampoo (2 nos) and Satthwa Anti Dandruff Shampoo

Organic Gypsy Aloe Moisturizer
I have already reviewed this moisturizer on my Instagram profile. I really like this moisturizer and it lasts very long.

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

Rustic Art Aloe Gel
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.

Zofla brand was very kind to send me the lavender essential oil as a goodie with my gift. They even printed Hiral's message for me on the box.


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!

Biotique Bio Quince Seed Nourishing Face Massage Cream Review

A good facial massage helps to strengthens the facial muscle, increases blood circulation and promotes collagen production. It also detoxifies by draining the lymphatic fluid. It is a also a good anti-aging tool and relaxing at the same time. I have been doing a facial massage since 2 years and I have seen good difference in reducing the acne marks on my face.


Brand Claims and Ingredients


Quince Seed is rich in vitamins and minerals and is known for its moisture retaining benefits.

Biotique Bio Quince Seed Nourishing Face Massage Cream Review

The product is housed in a white, plastic tub with an inner double lid for preventing the product leakage. The product is white in colour and has a slippery texture to it. The fragrance of the product is like Bio Quince Seed I suppose, since I have never sniffed this particular ingredient. Also the fragrance is non lingering and non bothering.

The massage cream gets easily absorbed into the skin without any hassle. While doing a facial massage you shouldn't tug or pull your skin and this massage cream helps in giving a nice slip to your fingers for the massage. The cream isn't heavy or greasy at the same time which I why I actually enjoyed using this face massage cream. The cream suits my oily and acne prone skin perfectly and I didn't experience any breakouts while using this cream.

After massaging my skin with this cream my skin feels soft, smooth and glowing. I could actually see a difference in the reduction of some fine lines on forehead. The cream even doubles up as a nourishing hand and feet moisturizer which is how am using it now a days. If at all you end up using a little more cream than needed on your face, post massage you can just wipe it off using a damp cotton pad. Also the product claims to suit normal to dry skin types still it suits my oily and acne prone skin. Also this cream perfectly suits the face  massage technique wherein oil is used for face massage.



The fact that Biotique products don't reveal the full ingredients and claim to be preservative free maybe the only thing of concern for some people. I absolutely like using the cream and so am going to repurchase it soon.

Biotique Bio Quince Seed Massage Cream retails at 230 INR fo 50 gms with a shelf life of 3 years. It is easily available on discount here.

Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo Review

Guest Post
I have been using Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo from quiet a long time now. Usual shampoos like Dove, Sunsilk, Pantene do not give me the desired results and hence I came across shampoos by Oriflame.


About Oriflame
Oriflame is a Swedish cosmetic company. The brand has nature inspired beauty products and their presence is in more than 60 countries. Their selling policy is quite different. You can purchase the products through appointed marketing agents only. There is no way to get the products directly from any shop. You have to go through the agents only. You won’t find brand’s flagship store anywhere.

This was a big hit in 90’s and 2000’s with a flood of lots of such brands. Many brands had targeted even doctors to promote the personal care products. Yes, even doctors were selling products to their patients and friends. Ladies found business in their kitty parties and social gatherings. But after the online shopping evolution in India, Oriflame hasn’t changed the policy. In fact almost none of the brands have. It is the biggest issue to avid online shoppers like me. You get this some products by the brand online during random deals though.

About Love Nature
Love Nature range by Oriflame is inspired by nature. The range has natural organic extracts and the products are completely free from paraben. All the rinse off products from this range are biodegradable, natural exfoliants and free from silicones. The bottles used are made from 40% recycled plastic. This is truly commendable!

About Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo
This creamy shampoo with natural Wheat and Coconut oil gently cleanses hair and helps to combat dryness and future damage. Biodegradable formulation.



Packaging, Texture & Fragrance
Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo comes in transparent bottle with white flip cap. It is quiet easy to take off the shampoo and see the quantity as the bottle is transparent. The bottle is sturdy and easy to travel with.
Shampoo is opaque off white in colour and the texture is thick just like any normal shampoo and the fragrance is of sweet tender coconut which is not overpowering.

My Experience
I take some shampoo and mix with water to generate lather. I use the foam on scalp and hair to cleanse. The shampoo is very mild. If I have done slight oiling, it takes it off very easily but if I have done champi or heavy oiling, my hair look fresh and scalp thoroughly cleansed but I do face itchiness. It is because the shampoo cannot take off everything on its own.

Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo lathers less than normal shampoos so I end up using it more. With each wash I do get soft and cleansed hair but conditioner is required if you have dry hair. In case I overuse the shampoo, I do get very dry and unmanageably tangled hair.

Ingredients
AQUA, SODIUM LAURETH SULFATE, GLYCERIN, COCAMIDOPROPYL BETAINE, SODIUM CHLORIDE, COCO-GLUCOSIDE, LAURETH-3, GLYCOL DISTEARATE, PARFUM, CITRIC ACID, SODIUM BENZOATE, GUAR HYDROXYPROPYLTRIMONIUM CHLORIDE, SODIUM LAUROYL SARCOSINATE, SODIUM CITRATE, 2-BROMO-2-NITROPROPANE-1,3-DIOL, SODIUM HYDROXIDE, COCOS NUCIFERA OIL, HYDROLYZED WHEAT PROTEIN, PHENOXYETHANOL, CI 16035, CI 19140, CI 42090

Price & Availability
The shampoo is priced at 369 INR for 250ml bottle but it is often sold at discounted price which is around 250 INR . Availability of Oriflame products is the biggest issue. You have to rely either on certain websites or brand’s authorised members as they believe in direct selling. You can get it though amazon or flipkart during sale offers.

Pros
  • Affordable
  • Mild shampoo
  • Good for dry to normal to hair types if slightly oiled  
  • Good for dry to normal to hair types with no oiling or mild oiling
  • Free from paraben and silicones
Cons
  • Availability is the biggest issue
  • Lathers less
  • Contains SLS, artificial colours and fragrance
  • Does not cleanse heavily oiled hair
Recommendation
Oriflame Love Nature Wheat and Coconut Shampoo is free from paraben but it does contain the controversial  irritant SLS. The shampoo is not clean but something better than very strong or harsh shampoos. I would recommend it to normal to dry hair types only. If you have very dry hair, this would not be the right choice. Also, it is very mild shampoo so it isn’t effective on heavily oiled hair. If you are eyeing only clean and SLS free, artificial colour and fragrance free shampoo, you may skip this.

Moolit Beauty Sunshine Drops Review

I vividly remember buying the first ever Moolit Beauty Product the Neem Gel to Milk Cleanser. After that I bought the 100x washed ghee ️and then the Rosehip oil. Hold on, none of these products are being made now. Today am reviewing the first permanent product of Moolit Beauty that is the Sunshine Drops.

I have truly enjoyed using all the products which I bought from Moolit Beauty. I bought the Sunshine Drops in July 2019 and am halfway through my bottle. Let's dive into the review without any further discussion.

Moolit Beauty Sunshine Drops Review

Brand Claims

A glow boosting serum for scarred & damaged skin

Ingredients - Organic rosehip seed oil, organic seabuckthorn berry pulp CO2 extract, organic sunflower seed oil, organic rosemary antioxidant CO2 extract.



Packaging, Fragrance, Texture - 
The product is housed in an amber coloured glass bottle with a plastic dispenser and you also receive a dropper along with the product. I didn't use the dropper since am okay with the dispenser itself. Since the product goes by the name Sunshine Drops, each time I dispense it I think of the sun and don't ask me why? The colour of the face oil (serum if you may say) is bright orange which reminds me of the sun . The fragrance of the serum is that of a Rosehip oil, since I have previously used Rosehip oil from the same brand, it smells exactly same.

The texture of the serum is astonishingly light and non sticky. You can definitely say like a dry oil. The product is perfect for skincare product layering owing to the texture.

My experience of Moolit Beauty Sunshine Drops

I have used Rosehip Oil from Moolit Beauty for the longest time and the same has happened with this serum too. As stated above I am halfway through the bottle. The serum is like a dry oil which when applied to the skin barely feels like it has been applied. When I touch my face after 1 hour of applying this serum I don't get any residual feeling on my fingers. Once you try to go overboard with more than 2 drops it is going to get wasted instead of doing any good to your skin. I have oily, acne prone skin and I use just 2 drops when using as a standalone serum. As mentioned by Utkarshini in her post on Instagram, I sometimes mix with half tbsp of aloe gel just one drop of it and my day time moisturizer is sorted.

Talking about the efficiency, the oil definitely gives a little glow to the skin and reduces dullness to a great extent. However the effects are seen when you regularly use it for around 6-7 weeks. It's not a one time effect or something which you can expect the serum to magically do. Although I do believe each Moolit Beauty creation is a magic itself. Sunshine Drops is a blend of light oils namely Rosehip oil and sunflower oil and has seabuckthorn berry pulp co2 extracts along with the rosemary co2 extracts.

The ultra non sticky, non oily texture can make the serum suitable for all skin types and dry/ normal skinned beauties might find the need to use a moisturizer underneath it. I am however not into skincare layering and so I use it as moisturizer during day (mixed with aloe gel) or as a serum at the night. If you are looking for a good serum to invest in then Moolit Beauty Sunshine Drops would be a good choice. I might pick up another bottle once I finish this one. Currently am also testing the Ubtan & Mylk so stay tuned for the review as well.

Night time/Swatch

Mixed with aloe gel


Price, Shelf Life and Availability - 550 INR for 10 ml with a shelf life of 6 months. Available on the link mentioned in Moolit Beauty Instagram page (@moolitbeauty).

Recommendation of Moolit Beauty Sunshine Drops

Moolit Beauty Sunshine Drops is a lightweight serum for day to day use. The serum gives a glow to the skin without any oily or sticky feeling. It can also double up as a moisturizer when mixed with aloe gel. It can also work well in skincare layering due to it's light, dry texture. I would recommend the Sunshine Drops to get rid of dullness with a regular usage of 6 weeks. However if you don't enjoy using Rosehip oil this one would be a skip for you. I am buying it again once I finish off my bottle of this serum and jar of Ubtan & Mylk.

Dot and Key Water Drench Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum Concentrate Review

Today am reviewing Dot and Key Water Drench Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum Concentrate. I had received it along with the Dot and Key Clarifying Serum and somehow forgot to use it. Am penning down this review after using it for 10 days.


Brand Claims and Ingredients


Packaging, Texture and Fragrance 
The serum is housed in a blue, opaque, thick plastic bottle with a white dropper. The bottle has an inner rubber lining. The consistency of the product is a little thick but non runny. The product has a strong fragrance which is a bit bothering to the nose. I don't understand the addition of Parfum to the product when the brand claims to be a clean brand. I also don't like the artifical fragrance of these serums.

My experience
The serum has an opaque, thick yet slimy texture as stated before. No sooner you apply it on the skin than it gets absorbed really quick. It neither leaves a greasy feeling nor a watery feeling. I like the absorbing quality of the serum. It sinks into the skin giving an even toned skin. After some time you won't feel like you have applied something and yet get smooth and plump skin.

Now coming to the efficiency, my skin becomes plump when I use it night. I don't like using this serum during the day and have tested it for night routine only. I applied the serum for ten days (once a day) and felt smooth and plump skin. I sometimes feel dryness in the morning skin I can't  use an oil sealant to seal the goodness inside. My skin doesn't work well with skincare products layering, so I tried to mix the serum with a little aloe gel and an oil serum. This way it works quite ok for me as opposed to using as a standalone serum.


Initially when I applied the serum some days my skin would look parched and some days it would look plump. I think it was due to the weather conditions. Although am not a fan of skincare layering, this serum would work for those who use sealant oils in their routine.

Price, Shelf Life and Availability - 895 INR for 30 ml with a shelf life of 3 years. Dot and Key Hyaluroic Serum Concentrate is available on Dot and Key website, Amazon.in, Nykaa.com

Recommendation
I would recommend the Dot and Key Hyaluronic Serum Concentrate as a good option to plump up the skin and get even toned skin. However it would be best used when mixed with plain aloe gel for people who are acne prone and who aren't into skincare layering. This would be the best option for dry, normal and combination skin types who can add an additional layer of moisturizer above this serum.

Raw Beauty Banana and Moringa Hair Mask Review

I am a lazy person when it comes to hair care. All I do is shampoo my hair, once they are thoroughly dried I simply apply a hair oil and tie them up in a banana clip. I don't put much oil before hair wash, sometimes I do massage my scalp a bit, that's all hair care routine I follow. I thought of using some hair mask and I zeroed in on Raw Beauty after checking the not so common yet amazing ingredients of the hair mask. Let's dive straight into the review and see how it works.


Brand Claims and Ingredients


Packaging, Texture and Fragrance
The hair mask is housed in a glass jar with all the information regarding the product printed on the product label. The glass jar is sturdy and can be reused. Raw Beauty also provides refills of hair mask, powder cleansers in oxo degradable pouches so you can anytime reuse the glass jar. Coming to the texture of the hair mask it is in dry powder form with some oats particles in it. Except the oats particles I don't have any problem with the texture of the product. Talking about the fragrance of the hair mask it is bitter sort due to moringa I think. Nonetheless the fragrance is natural and once you apply the mask it fades away and we get used to it.

My experience
My hair type is dry, frizzy ends and oily, dandruff prone scalp. I have always avoided hair masks in powder masks due to dandruff. I apply the mask before washing my hair and keep it for 30-45 minutes and them wash off with a mild shampoo.

Coming to the review
  • First time I tried it by mixing with Raw Beauty Back to Basics Hair Cleanser. The results were a bit disappointing as my hair didn't feel clean and felt oily.
  • Next time I tried it by mixing with plain water and then using my regular shampoo. Hair felt clean and scalp a little oily. But I was happy with the results.
  • Third time I tried mixing the curd and the results were amazing. Ever since I got to know that the hair mask gives me good results by mixing with curd, I have been using it with curd and nothing else.

Now coming to the effects, it makes hair soft and manageable. I have baby hair which curl up like anything. Whenever I use this mask and then shampoo, my baby hair behave themselves and the hair gets a little straightening effect. I really like this effect.

I have not seen any major hair fall while using this hair mask. The only thing I would mention is, I usually sieve the hair mask before use as the tiny oats granules become difficult to wash off. I apply heena to cover my grey so I can't use any hair mask as often as it needs to be used to give soft hair. Still this mask gives good results by making the hair soft. A thorough wash off is needed while using any hair mask. Overall I like to pamper my hair with Raw Beauty Banana and Moringa Hair Mask which gives a straightening effect to my baby hair and makes them manageable. I have already shopped for a refill pouch of the hair mask (Raw Beauty owner Su sent it to me free when I ordered the vanilla lip lock balm 😅)



Price, Shelf Life and Availability - 590 INR for 100 gms with a shelf life of 4 months. DM @rawbeauty2018 on Instagram to order. I think as long as water doesn't enter the jar this hair mask will have a shelf life of 1 year.

Recommendation
Raw Beauty Banana and Moringa Hair Mask gives me good results with soft and manageable hair even though am unable to use it regularly. My hair is very frizzy and my baby hair absolutely behave when I mix this mask with curd and use. Wash off, of the mask is a little messy as oats particle get stuck in between the hair strands, so I usually sieve and use the mask. Overall I like using Raw Beauty Banana and Moringa Hair Mask and have already got another refill pack.
