Review on Fabindia Charcoal Face Pack



Hi Beauties!



How are you all doing my beautiful ladies? Today I am here to review Charcoal Face Pack from Fabindia. Well you guys already have an idea about my sensitive and combination troubled skin, I suffer from pimples, redness and rashes near my nose and chin area and sometimes it really goes out of my control. I don’t have dark spots and pigmentation but due to pimples and rashes my skin end up getting blemishes. I was looking for a charcoal face pack for so long and heard about this decent Charcoal Face pack so thought of giving it a try. I am using this face pack twice in a week for last two months. 

So let’s see how it worked with my sensitive skin.

What the product claims:


Charcoal is known for its ability to absorb impurities. This pack containing charcoal uses multani mitti as its base. It absorbs oil and dirt from the pores, leaving skin cleaner and healthier.

How to use:



Avoiding the eye area, apply the pack and leave on for 10minutes. Rinse with cold water and pat dry. Close the lid tightly after use.

Ingredients:

Purified Water, Kaolin, Glycerine, Cetostearyl Alcohol, SLES, Isopropyl Palmitate, Activated Charcoal, Papain Powder, Zinc Oxide, Fragrance, Lactic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Xanthan Gum, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Imid Urea, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Almond Oil, Lemongrass Oil.

Price:


350(INR) for 100gm

My Take on the product:



The product comes in a sturdy plastic rounded jar with a flat screw lid on the top. There is a white sturdy inner lid which secures the product from inside and doesn’t let the product leakage.  I quite like the packaging as it is light weighted and handy too, for jar packaging I always prefer to use spatula to scoop out the product everytime I use. Now coming to the texture part, it has a thick consistency which is decent for a facial mask and easily spreadable with less effort. While opening the jar I can smell a refreshing fragrance of lemongrass which is intense. Face pack is dark grey in color which dries up pretty fast and gives a tightening effect. I use this pack twice in a week. It feels light on my skin, I apply a thick layer all over my face and neck and leave it for 10 to 15 minutes and rinse off with normal water, you have to give extra effort while washing your face because this product has a tendency to get into your skin after drying and you have to take it off with light hand massage during the wash. I do have dry to combination skin and it tends to get oily near t-zone area, this mask completely removes oil, sebum from that area. After washing face you can clearly feel the smoothness in your skin with immediate effect and off course sebum free. I could see a brighter looking skin immediately after the application which remains for day long as it cleans skin from dirt and impurities. With regular usage you can definitely notice a clear and brighter looking skin for sure. I have noticed, it removed my light blemishes near chin area which I think is great. I feel like using moisturizer after using this face pack as it makes skin little dry, so dry to combination skin people should use moisturizer after washing your face. It never irritates my sensitive skin areas near nose and chin and yes no signs of tingling effect on those areas after using it.

Pros:


·         Handy light weight packaging
·         Feels light on my skin
·         Refreshing lemongrass fragrance
·         Smooth consistency which is spreadable
·         Removes dirt, impurities and sebum
·         Makes skin clean and clear
·         Gives a brighter looking skin with regular usage
·         Causes no irritation on sensitive skin area
·         Budget friendly


Cons:
·         Contains parabens
For jar packaging I always scoop out a generous amount with a spatula whenever I use it. So no questions of hygiene issue!

Verdict:

Overall it’s a decent charcoal face mask which can effectively work on clearing your skin from dirt and impurities making it clean and gives an instant glow. It can give a brighter looking skin, removing light blemishes with regular usage. I would recommend this face pack to all combination to oily skin people to try for!

Review on Alanna - Naturally Beautiful Chocolate Lip balm




 Hi Lovely Ladies!



How are you all doing my beauties? Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! J Hope you guys have enjoyed this weekend. I am extremely sorry for being MIA for past few weeks, trust me I really missed you all, I was unable to spend enough time with my family due to office work and all so thought of taking some days off from everything and just spend some quality time with my family and friendsJ. But today I am here again with a lip product review from the brand Alanna! I have been trying this lip balm for last few weeks and today I want to share my experience with you guys!

But before going to review, let’s see what the brand Alanna says!

Alanna is a brand founded by Rasshi Bahel, totally a natural brand which makes all handmade beauty products mostly skincare and hair care stuffs, with 100% natural ingredients and there is no presence of harsh chemicals, parabens, sulphates  which can cause any kind of skin damage. According to the brand, they have the product range of handmade soaps, body butters, herbal packs both for skin and hair and they are extending their product range. I really got attracted by their tagline which is “Naturally Beautiful” that means they are offering beauty products with best natural extracts without any chemical preservatives that could harm our skin or hair, I am always more into organic natural products when it comes to skincare stuffs as my skin is sensitive and any kind of chemicals can cause skin irritations.


let’s jump into the review now


What the product says:


This lip balm contains an abundance of nourishing and natural ingredients like Shea Butter, Chocolate extract and cocoa powder that seal in moisture and help in the treatment of dry chapped lips.

How to use:

Apply a small amount on lips and massage until absorbed. Use daily any number of times.

Ingredients:

Beeswax, shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa powder, chocolate extract.

Price:

200(INR) for 8gm



Availability:

My Take on the product:




The product comes in a clear rounded hardy plastic jar with golden screw cap on the top which holds the brand logo. The product jar is covered with a beautifully printed cardboard paper box which contains all the information including product ingredients and all. I am totally in love with it’s simple, neat packaging, though they are made of plastic, they are very sturdy, sleek and classy too. Lip balm is chocolate in color, texture is buttery and smooth which can easily melt into your lips. It gets absorbed very quickly without leaving any greasiness. It has a yummy chocolaty smell!!!! I am using this lip balm almost every day two to three times and specially before going to bed. It doesn’t feel heavy on lips after layering. It keeps lips nourished for hours and makes softer looking. I prefer to use lip balms during nighttime before going to bed, be it winter or summer they are like my daily essentials for my lip care. My lips look super hydrated for hours in the next morning.  If you have chapped lips and tired of the flakiness after wearing matte lipsticks, you can try this lip balm to try overnight on your lips regularly. 

Pros:

·         100% natural and handmade
·         Contains no parabens, no sulphates or any harsh chemicals
·         Smells yummy
·         It makes your lips soft and smooth, keeping them hydrated for hours
·         It is soft in texture which glides and spreads smoothly on your lips
·         Cruelty free
·         Not expensive

Cons:

·         Couldn’t find any


Verdict:

Overall I am really very impressed with this lip balm, it is freshly made which is fully loaded with all natural ingredients. It smells yummy, enriched with finest natural resources to make your lips softer and keeping them hydrated and nourished for hours simply can be the best treat for your gentle lips! I would recommend this lip balm to all my friends to try for.
