Inatur Herbals Oil Control Face Wash- Review

Hello everyone,

Hope you are having a great day!

Skin care is a very important part of our daily routines. I recently migrated from chemical based to all natural products. There are many brands with exciting products in Indian market. So, I decided to use a few myself to battle out my skin problems.

I came across a brand INATUR HERBALS that comprises of a range of natural skin care, hair care and personal care products that are safe on skin and result oriented. I decided to try a few of their products. This post is a review of their Oil Control Face Wash.

PACKAGING:-

It  comes in a green see through tube with light green leaves printed all over it. It has a plastic flip cap that closes tightly. The packaging looks cool and fun. IMG_6193.JPGIMG_6187.JPG

₹ 160 for 75 ml

₹ 310 for 150 ml

Buy it from here

ABOUT THE PRODUCT:-

Inatur’s oil control face wash is enriched with Neem- that has anti-bacterial properties, helps in controlling pimples & acne and their recurrence. Clove oil- that prevents acne and kills infections, Basil- detoxifies the skin, improves the skin tone & prevents blackheads and Miliglobules- that provide gentle exfoliation.

It helps to open clogged pores, eliminates impurities and excess oil and also prevents occurrence of pimples.

For best results, use it twice daily- in the morning and at the end of the day.IMG_6185

It is ideal for Oily /Acne-prone skin.

DIRECTIONS TO USE:-

Moisten face, apply a small quantity of the face wash and gently work up lather in a circular motion. Wash off with water and pat dry. Use twice a day- in the morning and before going to bed for best results.

MY EXPERIENCE WITH INATUR HERBALS OIL CONTROL FACE WASH :-

The face wash looks like a clear gel with blue beads or miliglobules that provide gentle exfoliation. The face wash smells of some herbal ingredients. It is refreshing. I have a combination skin that tends to break out a lot in winters. This face wash contains tea tree oil which prevents pimples. Basil, clove, neem and turmeric have antiseptic and healing properties. The face wash definitely washed away all the oil from my face and prevented it from coming back for at least 5 hours. The only drawback is that it barely did anything for my blackheads. Also I am a huge fan of bubbles and being a soap free face wash this product does not lather well.IMG_6237.JPG

PROS:-

  • Easily available
  • Reasonably priced
  • Removes excess oil from the face
  • Smells good
  • Refreshes dull skin
  • 100% natural and cruelty free
  • Available in travel sizes
  • Sulphate free

CONS:-

  • Not useful for all skin types (available for normal to oily skin)

WILL I EVER USE THIS FACE WASH AGAIN:-

Definitely YES!! This is one of the few products that actually stands true to its claims. Also its a sulphate free, 100% natural product and is not at all harsh on my skin.

Euphorbia box- Review

I love trying out beauty boxes and I am always on a lookout for new and affordable ones.

In the month of October I saw a few of my friends review a new box that was super affordable and with an impressive selection of products in the October box.

So I placed order for the box, they were sold out for the October month and I just got my first box in November.

This blog is to review the Euphorbia box.

IMG_6151.JPG

Here is a little bit about the box from their website. Euphorbia box is a small, family-owned start-up company. The box is designed to help users explore the world of beauty & skin care products and discover their favorite products in a convenient, effortless and affordable way.

Lets take a look November’s Euphorbia Box-

Packaging-

It is a simple carboard box with Euphorbia box written in blue with the products nicely bubble wrapped inside.

I like the simplicity of the packaging.IMG_6155.JPGIMG_6181.JPG

Price-

I got this box at the launching price of Rs 199. This months box is now available for Rs 248IMG_6165

Products-IMG_6162.JPG

1. Ang-Tatva Kaya Tatva Scrub-off (Rs 345 for 75g)

This herbal scrub looks interesting and I look forward to trying this product, however I am surprised that manufacturing date is not mentioned on this product. It has a very strong scent of turmeric but I don’t mind that.IMG_6167.JPGIMG_6171.JPG

2. HM Have More Dry Matte Nail Polish (Rs 299)

From the packaging the nail paint does not look very expensive as the print and the bottle looks cheap so I am bit surprised that the product retails for Rs 299. The colour is red and I am not too excited about the product.IMG_6173.JPG

3. BioBloom Face Wash (Rs 160 for 30ml)

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting any sample products in the box as there were none in he October box. This sample size product is paraben ans sulphate free which is definitely a good thing but, it is too tiny to impress me.IMG_6176.JPG

4. Duft Facial Wipes (Rs 79 for 25wipes)

They are alcohol and paraben free wipes and I can’t complain about them.IMG_6179.JPG

5. Mama Earth Sunscreen SPF 20+ (sample size of 7ml)

This was a bummer. This sample size product is for children of age 0-5 years so not useful for me at all. I mean I am sure not all the people ordering this box are people with children so, including this tiny sample as a product is just ridiculous. IMG_6178.JPG

My verdict

At this time I am just scared because I ordered a 3 months subscription and I am dreading the next two month’s boxes. Overall I am disappointed with the selection of products available in the November box especially when I compare it with the impressive product range that were available in the month of October. This month’s box was just boring. It just failed in every aspect possible. I am struggling to call the box average. I hope the curators can make the December box full of surprises.

Hope you found this review helpful. Please leaves your thoughts about the box in the comments below.

I always love hearing from you guys and you can get in touch with me by emailing me on barkha.vyas06@gmail.com

My envy box Review- October, 2016- Third Anniversary edition!!

I was desperately waiting for my October envy box as it was the anniversary edition and I was to receive extra 3 products. So, you can imagine my excitement when it finally showed up on my door steps. This month, My Envy Box turns three. Without further ado let’s take a look at the products that I received in my birthday month’s box.

IMG_1773.JPG

October 2016 3rd Anniversary My Envy Box

This month’s box is plain white in color with the envy box logo in the center and turns three printed underneath. The reason why the box is plain is because there is a color me contest going on where in you have to do something fun and creative on the box in order to win loads of prizes.

IMG_1768.JPG

Products received:-

1.      AYCA- Jasmine Body Wash:- (100ml for INR 438/-)

This is a mild, foaming gel cleanser for all skin types. It’s a natural product made from coconut derivatives. Coconut is said to be very nourishing for your skin and it also helps break down makeup. Therefore I am excited to try it out and see how it works out.

IMG_1775.JPG

2.      Forest Essentials- Facial Cleansing Paste:- (15g for INR 925/-)

Forest essential is one of my favorite brands. This cleansing paste contains ingredients like Almonds, Pistachio, fresh Turmeric, Buttermilk, Floral waters, organic Honey and fresh Aloe leaf juice.

IMG_1779.JPG

3.      Vert- Loose Powder:- (10g for INR 1250/-)

This is the only makeup product in the box. It is a handmade loose powder made out of natural ingredients like rose petals and French clay. This versatile powder can be used as eye shadow, highlighter or a blush.

IMG_1777.JPG

4.      VICHY Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam:- (15ml for INR 230/-)

VICHY is one of the most trusted and most widely used skin care brand. This cleansing foam leaves the skin feeling refreshed, flawless, luminous and radiant.

5.      Nertia- Nail Art :- (1 pack for INR 80/-)

These are basically nail stickers that are being marketed as dry nail polish that lasts up to 7 days.

IMG_1784.JPG

GIFT PRODUCTS IN THIS MONTH’S BOX:-

As this was the third year anniversary box I also received 3 extra sample sized products which are as follows:

1.      BABOR – HSR lifting:-

This is an anti aging extra firming cream.

IMG_1778.JPG

2.      Skin Yoga- Neem Purifier:-

This is a post workout anti bacterial body purifier.

IMG_1781.JPG

3.      BIODERMA- Photoderm AKN Mat SPF 30:-

This is a sunscreen lotion sample for oily skin.

IMG_1783.JPG

MY VIEWS OF THIS MONTH’S BOX:-

There was a lot of anticipation regarding this month’s box as we were told in the emails that October envy box will be full of surprises and we will receive 8 products in the box.

Also I am quite excited about the COLOUR ME CONTEST. We basically have to be creative and color the white box to stand a chance to win products worth Rs 3000/-.

IMG_1787.JPG

Talking about the products I am extremely excited about trying the Forest Essentials Facial Cleansing Paste, Vert Loose Powder and VICHY Ideal White Brightening Deep Cleansing Foam. The AYCA Jasmine Body Wash smells amazing. I am a bit skeptical about Nertia nail art as the idea of a nail sticker lasting 7 days does not sound right to me.

About the extra 3 products BABOR HSR lifting cream is the most necessary thing for me as I just entered my late twenties a few days ago. Skin Yoga products have never disappointed me and I am sure this won’t disappoint me too. The Bioderma sunscreen was no surprise to me as I have literally received it in all my boxes.

IMG_1774.JPG

To conclude the October My Envy Box is something you cannot afford to miss. It is just spectacular.

Pros
-Excellent packaging
-Pleasant Fragrance of roses
-Vitamin C enriched
-Suitable for all skin types
-Gentle exfoliators therefore great for daily usage

Cons
-Packaging is not travel friendly as the glass bottle can break or spill
-Extremly costly
-Mild explanation is not helpful for coarse skin types.

My Experience with Skin Yoga Oats and Rose Face Wash
The product is a 100% natural product. The packaging is absolutely gorgeous. It’s very easy to use and just a small quantity of product does the job.
The face wash is enriched with vitamin C which is great for your skin. Vitamin C provides glow to your skin.
The scrub is very gentle on the skin and has mild exfoliators. Therefore it’s great of sensitive skin and daily usage. I have a lot of black and white eads on my nose and chin therefore mild exfoliation doesn’t work that well for me.

image

Will I buy this product again?
Although the product is nice I would probably not buy it again because this extremely expensive product does nothing for my skin.
I’d give the product 3/5 stars
