VLCC Skin Defense Sandal Cleansing Milk

Standard

The advise we always receive,’ We should never sleep with out makeup clinging to the face’ is the ultimate truth to have a healthy and youthful skin. Be it anything your eyeshadows or the foundation they all have some chemicals. And sleeping with these can make your skin breakout or early aging. So the most important part of the skin care routine Cleansing should never be avoided.

I have a really soft corner for products which claim to be made from natural ingredients. And VLCC is one such brand which promises just that.

VLCC claims, ‘This refreshing, non-foaming cleansing milk is enriched with the goodness of Sandalwood, Almond and Indian Berberry extracts. It deep cleanses, nourishes and heals the skin’.

Price: Rs. 125 for 100ml.

Lush Herbalism Cleanser

Standard

Casual stroll in Select City Walk can be so fruitful 😀

I am a sucker for the herbal and natural products and this little green paste promises to be just that!

So I had another visit to the world of natural products. Entering Lush is like giving an opportunity to an eager kid to roam around and pick each and everything in sight. 🙂

Like that same kid I was roaming hopping from one big bar of fruits and veggies to another. And that’s when this generous man came for my help. The SA was more than happy to show me various skin and hair care products and when I told him I have super oily skin he showed me this thick green paste called Lush Herbalism Cleanser. After the application of this cleanser on my hand I felt the immediate softness and the next moment I knew it was in the basket :).

Lush says, ‘Purifying and exfoliating herbal cleansing roll wash. Best used on oily and problem skin. Herbalism is a green, squidgy, putty-like paste made from powdered herbs, which are actually perfect for the skin. Herbalism cleanses with China clay, exfoliates with ground almonds, revives the skin with rosemary, uses nettle powder to purge your toxins and chamomile to soothe the surface. Please also drink two litres of water a day, go for a three mile walk, don’t smoke and eat your five helpings of fruit to keep your skin looking fantastic. Herbalism can do magic, but you’ve got to do your part.’

Available at Rs. 585 for 100grams. 

Immediate effect:

I was really happy with my purchase among other things that the moment I reached home I rushed to wash my face. And it worked wonders on my skin. Made my face so soft and radiant. It has small grains like particles which I guess does the excellent scrubbing. I initially thought it was quiet expensive for the amount they were offering but this little tub will last more than 2 months(with regular use) as a little amount of product is needed.

FabIndia Neem Tulsi gel face and body scrub

Standard

I was an avid reader of many beauty blogs and from there I came to know about FabIndia. I love things which have minimal chemical content in them so that’s why I really wanted to try products from FabIndia.

“Fabindia is India’s largest private platform for products that are made from traditional techniques, skills and hand-based processes.”

The first product I bought from this brand was Neem Tulsi gel face and body scrub. I am a die hard fan of scrubs to pamper my skin:D.  They make the skin so soft and radiant. 🙂

For me buying a product isn’t very easy. I take my own time to read what the company has to say about it’s products. Hehe.. I read everything from the description to the ingredients (and of course the price :)).

FabIndia: Our body and face gel scrub, especially formulated for daily use is made with natural active ingredients. It gently exfoliates the skin leaving you feeling refreshed and invigorated all day long.
