Himalaya Wellness Foot Care Cream Review, Price and Usage

As a kid, I have often seen my mother applying foot care cream and wondered whether it is really something worth investing for. I have seen my mother suffering from cracked heels, no matter how much she tried to avoid it by through her natural remedies. At last, only a good foot care cream would come to her rescue. I would always ask her why don’t she get pedicure done regularly. Now that I’m almost in my mid twenties, I can understand how cracked heels can be painful and ugly, visiting a salon for pedi-mani hardly happens once in 3-4 months  for me.

Our feet are one of the most neglected part of our body. This is the second time, when I’m suffering from cracked heels. I didn’t go for any home remedies apart from wearing socks most of the time. As I was looking for some magical remedy for my cracked heels, my mother recommended me to use Himalaya Wellness Foot Care Cream.

After a little research online, I decided to give it a try. I have been using it for the sixth week now and I think it’s time when I share my views about the product in this post. Read to know more about Himalaya Wellness Foot Care Cream:

Price: INR 110 for 50g

Shelf Life: 3 years from the date of manufacture
Ingredients: Himalaya’s Foot Care Cream cares for your cracked heels and rough feet with natural ingredients. Enriched with the goodness of Honey, Turmeric, Fenugreek seeds and Sal Tree extract, this cream leaves your feet feeling soft in one week.
dsc_0159
  • Sal Tree extract is used as an ingredient in ointments for skin diseases and in ear medicines. Its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties help heal cracked heels.
  • Honey, with its bactericidal and antiseptic properties, is extremely important in Ayurveda. Used in a variety of medicines, honey is also an effective moisturizing agent.
  • Turmeric has been used as an antiseptic for centuries. The herb also contains strong anti-inflammatory properties, which soothe your feet gently.
  • Fenugreek has been traditionally used in Ayurvedic medicines and is an excellent moisturizer, specially formulated to hydrate dry skin. Applied externally, the herb is also beneficial for boils, abscesses and ulcers.
  • Ginger is used externally as a local circulatory stimulant which keeps the feet warm, preventing the skin from cracking due to the cold.

Directions for Use: Wash feet with lukewarm water and pat dry. Apply the required quantity of the Foot Care Cream over the affected area twice daily, once in the morning after bathing and again at bedtime

 My take on the product:The Himalaya Wellness Foot Care Cream comes in a handy packaging. The cream comes in white tube with a dark green lid, it is easy to carry around in bag and application never gets messy. The cream has a mild fragrance which doesn’t bother my rather sensitive nose. The cream is lightweight and hence the application gets super easy.
dsc_0161
The cream blends in my feet easily and it doesn’t feel sticky at all. I apply the Himalaya Wellness Foot Care Cream at night before going to bed. I wash my feet with warm water and  pat dry followed by applying this cream on my feet. When I started using it, my feet was in extremely bad condition but after regular application for a week, I could feel that the cracks have almost healed and my feet felt softer than before. I’m really happy with the result and I’ll stick to this cream every time I’ll get cracked feet.
Pros: 1. Herbal product
2. Mild fragrance
3. Non greasy
4. Lightweight
5. Hydrating
6. Heals and repairs cracked feet as per claim
7. Easily available
8. Affordable
Cons: Contains paraben, but that’ quite common for almost all types of creams, isn’t it?
Rating: 4.5/5
Final Verdict: I’ll recommend Himalaya Wellness Foot Care Cream to everyone who is looking for an affordable cream to heal  cracked heels. The product does work wonderfully without going heavy on pockets.

Banjara’s Skin Positive Beauty Cream and Body Lotion Review, Price and Usage

Hello girls, I hope you are doing good. Maintaining a flawless skin in summer seems like an impossible task for most of us. The heat and the pollution together give us tanned skin, pimples, rashes and other skin problems. No matter, how much we cover our face with a “dupatta” or wear sunglasses, we somehow end up getting tanned! To help you cope up with the skin problems in this season, Banjara has come up with two revolutionary products that promises to provide you a soft and nourished skin.

1-DSC03284

It is great to see that they have come up with not one but two products, one is a face cream and another is a body lotion. I have used both recently and here are my views about the products:

  1. Banjara’s Skin Positive Beauty Cream

1-DSC03283

Price: INR 100 for 40 g

Key Ingredients: Olive oil, Glycerine, Yashad Bhasma, Pomegranate fruit extract, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Wheat Germ oil, Provitamin B5

1-DSC03285

  • The product comes in a tube like packaging with a pointed nozzle for the ease of use. The packaging is very convenient to carry around. Whenever I look at the tube, it somehow reminds me of the Fevicol tube :p
  • The cream is baby pink in color and has a wonderful fragrance

1-DSC03286

  • The cream is really very lightweight and blends to the skin easily. This cream is non-greasy and hence it is apt to use in summer
  • It definitely hydrates skin and keeps it soft and supple and boots cell regeneration. I haven’t experienced any side effects yet.
  • It comes with SPF15 and PA+++ protection, so you can use it even when you are going out

2. Banjara’s Skin Postive Body Lotion

1-DSC03282

Price: INR 80 for 100ml

Key Ingredients: Sunflower oil, Kokum Butter, Shea Butter, Honey, Pomegranate fruit extract, Castor oil,  Yashad Bhasma

1-DSC03287

  • The product comes in a cylindrical container with a flip cap for the ease of use
  • The lotion is light pink in color and has a thick consistency
  • The fragrance is similar to that of cocoa butter mixed with pomegranate
  • The lotion blends well to the skin, however the lotion is very greasy and it is not appropriate to be used during daytime. It is better to use it at night before going to bed in small quantity
  • It makes skin soft and nourished on regular usage . I was suffering from skin dryness before to using this lotion. My skin has become  much smoother after continuous use of this body lotion for five days, so it definitely works great on dry skin.

Ratings: For Banjara’s Skin Positive Beauty Cream: 4/5

For Banjara’s Skin Positive Body Lotion: 4/5

Final Verdict: I think The Banjara’s Skin Positive range works great for dry skin. Both the beauty cream and the body lotion helps to nourish dehydrated skin and protects the skin in harsh weather. However, I think the Banjara’s Skin Positive Beauty cream is overpriced  for the amount of product present in it. If you suffer from dehydrated and dull skin then you must definitely give a try to this new range of products from Banjara’s.

PROTECT YOUR SKIN & HAIR THIS HOLI Part 2 Ft. Biotique Botanicals

Holi is just a few days away! And you all must gear up to have a big bash this year. Holi is the most enjoyable of all festivals however we all realize that Holi colors can damage the skin and hair. We got you covered this Holi with our Pre-Holi and Post-Holi skin care tips –

 

330956-holicpliys

Pre – Holi skin care:

  • Moisturize well – The most important part of your pre-Holi skin care would be building a layer of moisturizer/lotion on your face which is the most delicate area. Use a generous amount of moisturizing lotion having sunscreen like Bio Carrot which has an SPF 40 over your face (including area behind ears and earlobes) to protect yourself from the harmful colors as well as the sunrays.
  • Protect your Hands & Legs – Build a layer of body oil or lotion all over your hands and legs to make sure your skin is protected from the harmful chemicals. Also this would help getting off the color during the shower later. We recommend you to apply Bio Carrot Seed Oil which is light and not greasy, yet will give you the right amount of protection and if you prefer a lotion we recommend Bio Winter Cherry to nourish your skin and prepare it for the Holi party.
  •  Oil your Hair – Your hair would be the first part of your body that would get affected by the harmful chemicals in Holi colors. So make sure you oil your hair really well, at least 20-25 minutes before you start with Bio Flame of the Forest oil, which will prevent your hair from any damage.
  • Paint your Nails – If you enjoy painting your nails, then Holi is the day when you should definitely not miss painting them with your favorite nail polish. A nail polish would not only build a protective layer on the nails but would also get you in a festive mood.
  • Lips and Eyes – Protect your lips by applying lip balm generously. We recommend you to use Bio Morning Nectar or Bio Aloe Vera lip balm which also has SPF 30 and therefore would protect your lips from harmful sunrays as well. For eyes, completely avoid wearing contact lenses as they may cause irritation if got in touch with Holi colors.
  • Clothing – Now, when you have prepared your skin to face the Holi colors, make sure you clothe yourself with full-sleeved and full length bottoms, to reduce the chances of damaging your skin from the colors.

Post – Holi care :

Had a crazy Holi celebration? Well before you hit the bed to take a nap you must clean up the color from your face, body and hair. The more delay there is in cleaning the color, the tougher it will be to get rid of it.

  1.  Cleanse well: Firstly, dust off the all the dry color from your face and body. Remove all them makeup that you might have applied with a makeup remover like Bio Almond Oil. Then cleanse your face very gently with a mild cleanser. We recommend you to use Bio Honey Gel with lukewarm water to wash off the color.  If there’s still any color left, you can scrub off the rest using Bio Walnut purifying & polishing scrub. Avoid scrubbing excessively as it will damage your skin and may cause irritation.
  2. Wash your Hair: Next, wash your hair using a damage control shampoo like Bio Soya Protein followed by conditioning hair with Bio Watercress nourishing conditioner. Repeat the process for another couple of days until the color goes off completely.
  3. Cleanse your body with a revitalizing body wash like Bio Apricot body wash which has a 100% soap free formulation that would help removing any pollutants without dehydrating your body.
  4.  Moisturize – Apply a thick body butter like Bio Coco Butter for the next few days to nourish your skin well. Once the color is completely off your body, you can start using your usual body lotion.
  5. Nurture your Nails – Take out the nail paint using a nail paint remover and follow it up by giving a gentle massage to your hands. The color might take a couple of days to completely go off your skin, so keep patience and follow the post-Holi tips regularly until all the color is gone, without excessively cleansing/scrubbing your body.

Have a safe and wonderful Holi!For more information on Biotique, visit – www.biotique.com

Long gone are those days when we used to feel so happy and elated just by looking at ourselves in the mirror. Do you remember how we used to dress up, put make up, look into our reflection and throw flying kisses as kids? Nowadays, we have a different excuse to make up for it. Whenever we feel like doing something for ourselves, like taking care of our skin, trying that new hair style or a manicure, just to enhance our beauty, we say, “Oh! I don’t have time for all these”. I mean, really? You do not have the time to pamper yourselves? But, why is it so? What are you gaining from this ignorance? Nothing but long heaving sighs when a girl of somewhat younger or same age passes by. You look at her skin and wonder, “Oh! How pretty she looks” or “How beautiful her skin is!” Well, have you ever given a thought that you can have it too? You can also look beautiful in the same way if you can just take out some time from your daily schedules to spend on yourselves?

Be beautiful and be proud, there is nothing to feel embarrassed about it. Flaunt your beauty and show the world that you are still that cute little teenager by heart. Premature aging is a phenomenon that we women are all fighting today. So keep your spirits high and prevent old age from creeping up to you. Be brave and high spirited and wear a little make up sometimes. You are born to be beautiful, always remember that.

Summer brings endless skin problems for me, first of which being too much oil on my T zone and tanning. Although I haven’t seen tanning yet but my face gets oily within an hour of leaving home for office. Girls like me, who suffer from skin problems in summer and want to maintain a beautiful skin, you need to check out what Biotique has to offer. Biotique offers skin and hair care products developed from Ayurveda. They believe in incorporating the goodness of Ayurveda blended with contemporary science to offer beauty treatments that makes you glow from within and out.

  1. Cleansing (using the Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless face wash)

61o7+qM9LVL._SY355_

My experience with the product: I was actually planning for a long time to try out the Biotique Bio Morning Nectar Flawless skin lotion and I finally got a chance to use it. Like the face wash, I am using the skin lotion for over a month now and it suits my skin really well especially in this season when is skin is in between a dry and oily condition. The product comes in a white cylindrical bottle with a dark green cap. The lotion has a semi thick consistency and is white in color. It blends well to the skin and feels a little greasy on my skin. By the time April and May will be here, I guess i have to skip using it especially since I sweat a lot and my face gets oily naturally. This face lotion is best suited for dry skinned beauties. I’ll be using it few more days and then I am planning to use it for winter. It moisturizes skin well and there is no side effects.

 Final Verdict: I am overall satisfied with the three-step Biotique Flawless skin regimen and would recommend you all to try it out if you love ayurvedic products, especially the face scrub!

Which is your go to product in summer? Let me know in the comments below….

Skin 18 L’Affair Collagen 3 Step Skin Renewal Mask Review

Hello girls, how are you doing? It’s already spring and I see so many discounts on clothing and accessories in different stores. My life has been the same, nothing new to share. I had my exams last week which kept me a little busy in preparing. I can’t wait to April to get over when I’ll be completing my post graduation. So, few weeks back when I came home from a tiring day at office, my neighbor handed me a package. When I opened it, I found our that skin 18 has sent me a couple of different face masks and serum to try. Skin 18 is a Korean skin care website which believes in beautiful skin. Their concern is to help every women get the right skin care so that they look forever 18!

125N_1511-125N_20151121_small_a3

Since my skin feels very dry and dull these days due to the change of weather, I decided to start with the L’Affair Collagen 3 Step Skin renewal mask. As the website says, this complete  skin care kit helps to replenish and revitalize the skin and remove skin dryness. As you can see the package, it has three ingredients: a facial foaming cleanser, a high functional ampoule and the mask and you can easily figure out in what sequence you need to use them because they have already indicated that.

1-DSC03183

My take on the product: I could click a step by step picture  for the whole process but I am going to  describe how each product looked like and the consistency along with the immediate and after affects.

  • So the first step involved using the facial foaming cleanser. I had to squeeze out the product and apply it on my clean face, the cleanser was white in color and had a thick  and creamy texture. On applying it on wet face, it lathered well into a rich foam. The cleanser had a pleasant smell which was very similar to Clean and clear foaming face wash. After washing it off, my skin felt instantly clean and fresh. It removes all the dirt and oil and hydrates the skin. My skin didn’t feel dry at all

1-DSC03184

  • The next step was to apply the high functional ampoule. The ampoule was a clear liquid but not very runny. It had the right consistency like a light weight serum. The fragrance was very refreshing and it got absorbed on my skin very easily. The ampoule provides instant hydration and moisturizes the skin well

1-DSC03185

  • The last step is to apply the mask.The mask helps to improve skin elasticity and boosts cell renewal. I kept the mask for around 20 minutes. The result was soft, supple and nourished skin. Though the mask claims to shrink pores but I think it will take some time.You need to use the kit at least once a week for a month to see effective results.

1-IMG_20160130_141612

Pros: 1. Cleanses skin

2. Nourishes and replenishes

3. Reduce dryness and dullness

4. Improves skin elasticity

5. Boosts cell growth

Cons: Absolutely nothing!

Rating: 5/5

Final Verdict: If you are suffering from dry skin then you should definitely use L’Affair Collagen 3 Step Skin renewal mask and give a boost of nourishment and replenishment to you skin. It is a perfect skin food that will do wonder to your skin. You can check out their website for wonderful skin care products.

Say NO to Pimples with Clean & Clear Foaming Face Wash

Hello darlings, this post is dedicated to all those who have fought or are fighting the pimple monster every now and then. Puberty means imbalances in hormones and stress which leads to formation of ugly pimples. Pimples are tiny zits which is usually caused due to oil and dirt  trapped in skin pores. Isn’t it irritating to find a big red zit all of a sudden and that too on  when you have plans in the evening? Feels like the end of life? Well, it happens with most of us during puberty and it is very normal. But there must be a way to stop them. Well, the truth is you can stop pimples from appearing, they will pay you a visit every now and then but you can definitely reduce them.

1-DSC03134

Clean and clear has come up with their foaming face wash which is formulated especially for young girls, it cleanses the skin from within, removes all the dirt and oil from the face, making it clean. The face wash is formulated to act gently on the skin especially for teenagers who have very sensitive skin during their growing age.

1-DSC03133

The face wash is specially formulated to reduce the occurrence of pimples. It lather well creating a rich foam, a pea-sized amount works fine for the entire face, the face wash does not over-dry the skin but does remove all the oil effectively which I like.A 100 ml bottle comes for Rs 99 which I think is quite value for money. It comes in a transparent bottle with a yellowish tinge and a blue flip cap.

1-DSC03135

The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly, so you can also carry it in your bags. Wash your face twice daily with clean and clear foaming face wash to get naturally beautiful skin. Plus, it has mild fragrance which will refresh your mood. So girls, don’t worry about your pimples, eat healthy, have fun and fight pimples effectively with Clean and clear foaming face wash!

Kenisha Green Forest Soap and Medicated Turmeric Soap Review

Hello darlings, it has been long since I have posted here. Since winter is approaching, I’m already in the hunt for some good body butter and moisturizers for my skin. These days it feels so dull and lifeless. I personally hate winter since childhood. I remember how pathetic it was to suffer from dry chapped lips during early winter and how I had to apply a thick layer of Boroline on my lips to get away with the dryness. It has been same every year and I know this year won’t be an exception :(.

giphy

Few weeks back, Kenisha sent me their handcrafted soaps to try. I have already tried and reviewed two of their soaps earlier and I was really happy how they worked for my. This time they sent me a “medicated turmeric soap” and a “green forest soap”. Kenisha handmade soaps are made with all eco-friendly ingredients at Kerala. Their soaps are enriched with the benefits of essential oils and other natural ingredients. From making to packaging, they do it all by themselves with lots of love and car!

1-DSC03120

Coming to the review, the medicated turmeric soap is priced INR 200 for 100g and the green forest soap costs INR 160 for 80g. According to me, since these soaps are free from harmful chemical and artificial coloring ingredients, the price that they charge for these is pretty much okay because you know you are using something that is natural  and good for your skin. Let us see the features of each soap in details below:

1-DSC03121

Kenisha Medicated Turmeric Soap

  • Chemical free soap
  • Made up of  complete vegan ingredients like palm oil, coconut oil, castor oil, olive oil, Shea butter, Kerela’s medicated turmeric, jasmine essential oil, tea tree essential oil, turmeric essential oil and Vitamin E
  • Makes skin appear bright and healthy
  • Exfoliates skin well to impart a natural glow
  • Fights signs of ageing, controls oil secretion, lightens blemishes
  • Cures acne, rashes and sunburn
  • Do not dry out the skin after application, suits all skin types especially those with sensitive skin
  • Smells like turmeric

Kenisha Green Forest Soap

1-DSC03123

  • 100% vegan and natural
  • Made up of Palaash flower, coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, castor oil, rice bran oil, neem, hibiscus, aloe vera, khus, curry leaves, rose EO, ylang EO
  • Has wonderful healing properties
  • Cleanse, soothes and protects the skin from infections and dirt
  • Makes skin brighter and healthier
  • Nourishes skin from within
  • Suits all skin types
  • Smells pretty much same as the medicated turmeric soap.

1-DSC03124

I loved using both the soaps, but my favorite would be the medicated turmeric soap since it has helped to get rid of sunburns in my arm very quickly. I only feel that if the soaps came in some interesting shapes and colors and  some natural fragrance could be added to these soap then they would have looked more pleasing.

Kenisha handmade soap in “Green Forest”

I hope Kenisha works on these on their upcoming soap lines. I’ll recommend everybody to use their soaps and I’m sure you won’t be disappoined. Do you love using handmade soaps?

  • Enriched with lemon essence

My take:

    • Cream is not very thick and blends on skin easily
    • Reduces dark spots
    • With regular use skin looks brighter i.e. dark spots lightens ( not fairer)
    • Good for removing mild tan
    • Smells pleasant
    • Causes no side effects/breakouts.

Rating: 4/5

Final thoughts: The Garnier White complete Fairness face wash and cream is good for regular use, reduces dullness and spots and makes skin look fresh and brighter. The presence of lemon essence in the products helps to control oiliness. I haven’t experienced any skin whitening using the products so you’ll be disappointed if you are expecting the same from these products.
