Banjara’s 15 Minutes Multani and Saffron Face Pack Review

Hello girls, do you know that multani mitti or fuller’s earth can be used as warm and cold compress to reduce menstrual cramps? Today, I will be reviewing a face pack from Banjara’s that has multani mitti and saffron as the main ingredients. Multani mitti is a boon for oily skin and in summer I love to use such face packs which reduces skin oiliness and improve skin’s texture. Let us look into the details of the face pack:

Price: INR 100 for 100g

Key ingredients: Multani mitti and saffron

What the product claims: Banjara’s 15 minutes face pack with multani and saffron is a unique blend of multani mitti and saffron extracts to give you clear and radiant skin. Multani mitti cleanses the skin, absorbs the excess oil, opens up the pores, reducing pimples, marks and counteracts the effect of tanning to make your skin clear. Saffron lightens the skin, enhances the complexion to make your skin radiant.

Method of use: Wash the face and neck with Banjara’s face wash. Apply evenly on the face and neck, avoiding areas around the eyes and mouth. Allow it to dry for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash off with water. For best results, use it twice a week. Suitable for all skin types.

My take on the product: The face pack comes in a white tube with white flip cap. The packaging is sturdy and travel friendly. The face pack has a mild floral fragrance.

???????????????????????????????

I somehow, do not like the fragrance of multani mitti. The pack spreads easily on slightly wet skin. It can be applied on face and neck two-three times a week, kept for 15 minutes and then washed off with clean water.

???????????????????????????????

This face pack removes all the oil from my face making my face radiant and glowing. I haven’t seen any effect on my suntan yet. This face pack suits my skin well and I haven’t experienced any irritation, redness or breakouts on my skin.

3. Has a lovely fragrance

Lotus Herbals Claywhite- Black Clay Skin Whitening Face Pack Review

Hello all, how are you all doing? I’m back after the ‘Durga puja break’ though we have another important festival Lakshmi puja coming up in few days. I hope you all have enjoyed  the puja as much as I did. Soon we will be celebrating Diwali in few days. So you see, we have an array of festival lined up for the season. Today I’ll be reviewing a face pack from one of my favourite brand Lotus Herbals. It is a skin whitening pack consisting of black clay.

???????????????????????????????

Read on to know if this face pack is worth buying:

Price: INR 275 for 120g

Ingredients: Contains Methyl Paraben and Proplyl Paraben

What the Product Claims: Black Clay: Very rich in minerals and silica, helps to brighten facial complexion.

Bearberry Extract: Rich in Arbutin, helps to lighten complexion.

Liquorice Extract: Lighten facial complexion.

Method of Use: Wash your face with mild soap and blot dry. Apply a generous amount of Claywhite on face and neck, leaving eyes. Relax till completely dry. Rinse with fresh water. Follow with ‘Lotus Herbals Fairgel’.

My Take on the Product: The product comes in a cream-colored tube with a sturdy flip cap. The packaging is very user-friendly like every other products from the house of Lotus Herbals.

???????????????????????????????

The face pack has texture like that of clay since it is a black clay face pack. The face pack is easy to apply and spreads evenly though the consistency is on the thicker side. I like the color of the face pack, it is bluish grey in color and looks very different from other face packs I use, which are usually white, pink or yellowish :p.

???????????????????????????????

I don’t like the smell of this face pack and it smells somewhat like ‘Lacto Calamine’. I am using this face pack for over three months now but I haven’t seen any whitening effect on my skin yet. This face pack has a mixed effect on my skin, sometimes it works fine in a row of 2-3 uses and sometimes it gives me breakouts within a few hours of using it.

???????????????????????????????

I also feel a mild tingling sensation with the face pack on. Overall I feel this product is over priced and do not completely justifies what it claims to….

Pros: 1. Travel friendly packaging

2. Love the color of the  face pack.

Cons: 1. Overpriced

2. Does not whiten skin as it claims to

3. Causes occasional breakouts

4. I do not like the fragrance

My Rating: 3/5

Will I Repurchase It?: No, I will try some other face pack next time, suggestions are always welcome :)…..

FabIndia Haldi Chandan Mud Pack Review

Hello girls, I hope you are doing well. More than 75% of the people I met in last few days are suffering from viral fever. So, take care of yourself and stay healthy as the festive season is around. Today I’ll be reviewing a face pack from FabIndia.

???????????????????????????????

FabIndia is a well-known brand which has a wide range of natural and organic products starting from spices, skincare items, apparels and accessories. I purchased few FabIndia products few months back to see how they work on my skin. Let me tell you that my skin is sensitive and using a wrong product could be very problematic for my skin. I am using this face pack for over 4 months now. Read on to know whether FabIndiaHaldiChandan mud pack is worth trying or not….

Price: INR 250 for 100ml

Best Use Before: 36 months from the date of manufacture

Ingredients: Contains paraben

What the Product Claims: This pack containing turmeric extracts and sandalwood fragrance uses multani mitti as a base and helps clear the skin. Frequent usage over a period of time enhances complexion.

Method of Use: Apply directly in face and neck with upward stroke. Keep till dry and then wash. Close the lid tightly after use.

My Take on the Product: The product comes in a sturdy plastic jar with a screw cap. There is another round lid provided with the jar to keep the container hygienic and avoid any spills and leaks.

???????????????????????????????

The packing is travel friendly but it gets messy sometimes during application, this is why I prefer products in tube packaging. Coming to the product, the face pack is of the same color as fuller’s earth (Multani mitti). The consistency is like that of fuller earth, thick and even. The face pack has sandalwood fragrance which is quite okay and does not bothers much during application.

???????????????????????????????

I use this face pack twice a week after washing my face with FabIndia Tea Tree face wash. The face pack claims to enhance complexion but I haven’t noticed any drastic change in my complexion yet, though it has made my skin smooth with regular use. I have combination skin and my face gets very dry after using this face pack so I need to use a light moisturizer.

???????????????????????????????

I’ll recommend dry skinned beauties to avoid using this pack as this will make your face more dry. Overall this is a decent product in this price range, I wish they change their packaging to tube ones for convenience.

???????????????????????????????

Pros:  1. Contains Multani mitti

2. Decent amount of product in one pack

Cons:  1.Makes my face dry after use

2.Packaging needs improvement

My rating: 3.5/5

Will I Repurchase It again?: I think I’ll try something else that wont dry up my face!
