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.

Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash Review

Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash Review


Brand Claims
This Organic Oil Control Face Wash deeply cleanses the skin, controls excess oil and lifts up the dull skin without over drying the skin. It removes the impurities and unclogs the pores leaving the skin feeling fresh.
CERTIFIED ORGANIC PRODUCT: It is a 100% Organic ECOCERT Certified Organic product made with plant derived extracts. It is Free of Parabens, Mineral Oil and Animal Ingredients. 100% Vegan & Cruelty free face wash.

Ingredients of Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash

Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash Review

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.
Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash Review


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

Organic Harvest Oil Control Face Wash Review
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 of Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack
Native rose grains, mulethi, oat meal, skin cherishing essential oils

Brand Claims of Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack
Deyga's Rose & Mulethi Face Pack is perfect treat for dull & dry skin leaving it rejuvenated and bright. Suitable for all skin types.

My experience with Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack


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

Benefits of Deyga Organics Rose & Mulethi Face Pack
  • 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.

Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash Review

Brand Claims
This Certified Organic Acne Control face wash fights acne-causing bacteria and helps in making the skin clear and blemish free. It contains antibacterial and anti-fungal agents like Neem and Tea Tree extracts which help in preventing acne, remove toxins and impurities from the skin.

Ingredients of Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash

Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash Review

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. 

Organic Harvest Acne Control Face Wash Review

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.
