Importance of Vitamin C Serum- Vya Naturals Vit C serum Review and Giveaway

Hello Guys,

I will start by saying that at the end of this post you are going to be very happy 🙂

With Korean beauty and Natural beauty regimens taking over the world, we are now aware of so many essential things. Two years back, I had no idea what a serum really did for your skin. Now, I know that a serum is very important and provides an extra layer of moisture to your skin. There are many Vitamins that are essential to our skin like Vitamin C, E, D and K. While you can get Vitamin D and K naturally from the sun and your bones, Vit E and C need to be taken in from other sources.

I have tried quiet a few serums, essence and facial oils over the past 2 years, and today I am going to share my views on  Vya Naturals Vitamin C serum for all of you.IMG_6707.JPG

About Vya Naturals:-

The brand name VYA naturals is derived from:-

  • Vimal (pure)
  • Yajus (reverence)
  • Ayush (healthy life)

“If it’s going on my body, it better be good.” They live an preach by this moto. They make sure that they source the finest natural ingredients that are not only safe and non-toxic but also effective. Their formulations are original, created by them, and tested on people, not animals. They use therapeutic- grade essential oils, natural plant-based butters, natural clays and plant-based waxes. And they definitely DO NOT use parabens, sulfates, artificial colors, artificial dyes, mineral oils, formaldehyde, animal ingredients, artificial scents, phthalates, chemicals, fillers, mineral oils, or petroleum.IMG_6709.jpg

Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum:-

This Vya Natural’s Vitamin C serum for face is an anti aging serum with natural ingredients that helps brighten skin tone, hydrate skin, reduce fine lines and pigmentation.

Ingredients:-

IMG_6706.jpg

Directions:-

IMG_6705.jpg

Price and Where to buy:-

Rs 1295/- for 30 ml product

Buy it here (Use code VYA20 at checkout for 20% discount)

Why Vitamin C serum:-

Vitamin C has many benefits like:-

  • Reduces Wrinkles and photodamage by regulating the synthesis of the structural protein collagen.
  • Improves skin hydration
  • Reduces under eye circles
  • Creates brighter, healthier skin
  • reduces skin discolorationIMG_6712.jpgIMG_6711.jpg

My Experience with the product:-

I am quite impressed with this product. The packaging of this serum is like what you would expect. It comes in a dark-colored glass bottle with a glass drop dispenser. This packaging is perfect as vitamin C gets destroyed when kept in sunlight and plastic.

Since I have entered my late 20’s I have become very conscious of my skin. My skin has started showing all the signs of aging and  honestly this is scary. Therefore I have shifted my skin care regimen around anti aging products. The thing that I like the most about this product is that it is odorless and colorless. The serum is very lightweight in consistency and not at all sticky. This water based serum can be mixed with your moisturizer, BB creams or foundations. I have been using it for more than 2 weeks now and have not noticed any side effects like breakouts.

Pros:-

  • Anti aging
  • Lightweight
  • Odorless
  • colourless
  • skin brightening and lightning
  • Paraben free
  • Sulphates free
  • Made of natural ingredients
  • Cruelty free
  • No mineral oils and petroleum
  • No chemicals

Cons:-

  • ExpensiveIMG_6701.jpg

Giveaway:-

Now for the part that is going to make you happy. I am giving away one of the Vitamin C serum to one of my lucky followers. Here are the rules for the giveaway.

TOPO PAW PAW Ointment- Review

Hey Guys,

You must be wondering what the hell is a Paw Paw ointment? Well I was wondering the same thing till a few days ago when my dear friend SpexySrish gifted me TOPO’s Paw Paw Ointment. Basically this is Australia’s cult product. For over 100 years every Australian has been slapping this ointment on their lips.

What is a Paw Paw Ointment?

A Paw paw ointment is made of a few ingredients like Petrolatum, Carica Papaya(papaws) Fruit Extract, Beeswax and Potassium Sorbate.

The active ingredient is created by using a fermentation process to concentrate the enzymes from Australian papaws, rather than using a processed papaw powder from overseas. The freshly fermented papaw has healing properties which are very potent and has to be carefully balanced or it will be too strong for human use. The papaw is used to draw out impurities and has antiseptic qualities, while the petroleum jelly helps to heal.IMG_6680.jpgIMG_6685.jpg

Controversies surrounding Paw Paw Ointment:-

Many people believe the paw paw ointment to be a glorified and expensive petroleum jelly. There have been so many blog posts claiming to expose the truth about paw paw ointment but still, this ointment continues to be the most consumed product in Australia.

My experience:-

After using the TOPO Paw paw ointment for a few weeks I have found it helpful in various ways. It does help heal chapped lips and in addition to that is also good for insect bites and rashes. Like petroleum jelly it is not that greasy and keeps your lips moisturized for much longer.

This ointment is only available in Australia, so the next time you happen to travel to Australia don’t forget to pick one of these for yourself. IMG_6682IMG_6689.jpgIMG_6692.jpg

 

Winter Care by Himalaya Herbals – Review

Hey people,

himalaya.jpg

I am not a big fan of winters and unfortunately I live in one of the coldest cities of India. The temperatures of Delhi are dropping day after day and my bones are shivering to the core. Winters can make us very lazy hence leading us to take no care of our skin. We start drinking less water, stop moisturizing at least twice a day, get chapped skin and lips, our skin dries up etc.

I received a package of winter skin care from Himalaya Herbals and have been using them this season. Himalaya is one of the most trusted brands in India. Himalaya has amazing herbal products that we all love. So, let’s get talking about the 3 essential products of winter care.BeautyPlus_20180202202604_save-01

1. Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion:-

Price: Rs.140/- for 200ml. This body lotion smells fantastic. I cannot stop using it mainly because of the amazing smell of Cocoa butter. The key ingredients are Cocoa Butter and Wheat Germ Oil. The consistency of the lotion is thick but it’s not at all sticky. The body lotion nourishes and intensely moisturizes your skin. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201235 (1).jpgPSX_20180202_201315.jpg

2. Himalaya Nourishing Skin Cream:-

Price: Rs.220/- for 200ml. Himalaya’s Nourishing Skin Cream is a light, non greasy, daily-use cream, which provides all day moisturizing, nourishment and protection. The cream is blended with the extracts of Aloe Vera, Winter Cherry, Indian Kino Tree and Indian Pennywort, which protect your skin from pollution and dry weather, providing nourishment and moisture. I apply this cream on the areas that extremely chapped as its key ingredients Aloe Vera and Winter Cherry have antibacterial and cell regenerative properties. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201418.jpgPSX_20180202_201517.jpgPSX_20180202_201554.jpg

3. Himalaya Strawberry Shine Lip Care Balm:-

Price: Rs.140/- for 4.5gm. Lip balms are very important for me. Whether it is summers or winters, I can’t live without my lip balm. I absolutely hate that layer of chapped skin on my lips. In winters there is an increased chance of decrease in moisture of the skin leading to chapped lips. This Himalaya strawberry lip balm is a perfect moisturizing lip balm as it is not tinted and has a lot of shine. Strawberry Seed Oil is a rich source of essential fatty acids, acts as an excellent emollient and helps maintain the skin’s moisture balance. Apricot Kernel Oil is a rich source of Vitamin E and an emollient which effectively moisturizes dry and chapped lips. Buy it here.PSX_20180202_201700.jpgPSX_20180202_201726.jpgPSX_20180202_201756BeautyPlus_20180202201919_save-01.jpeg

I have been loving these products therefore I decided to share my views with you. Hope you find this helpful. Please leave your thoughts and ideas in the comments below. See you soon with another blog post. Until then stay healthy, stay stylish.

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

INGREDIENTS:-IMG_6189.JPG

PRICE:-

₹ 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

Eat Any Time Snack Bars

Hey guys,

Howz it going? On several occasion I have suffered the embarrassment of a loud growling stomach in public. I am that kind of person who starts feeling hungry just after one hour of a huge meal. So, Eat Any Time just sent over some of their snack bars. Here is my review…

About Eat Any Time:-

The main idea behind the snack bars was to create something healthy as well as delicious to satisfy the hunger pangs in between meals. They realized that our snacking choices were very unhealthy (mostly deep-fried stuff) and they wanted to create some healthy –wholesome choices.

Their Story- (from their website)

“E.A.T. Bars Are Made From 100% Natural Ingredients. Each Bar Is Carefully Prepared Using Ingredients Which Offer A Blend Of Scrumptious Taste And Wholesome Nutrition.

They say experience is the best teacher and that is how we started with E.A.T.
Life, as we know it, is not easy but at the same time it is busy. Out in the big world trying to make our mark, fulfill our dreams we work hard and struggle every day. Me and my friend were two such people toiling day and night, often forgetting to eat on time, skipping our meals and bingeing on the junk. Before we realised we were sustaining ourselves on the junk food easily found at the stretch of the hand in every nook and corner of Mumbai.

Soon we began to feel the ill-effects of all the junk we lived on. We were fatigued, irksome, sluggish and unable to focus on things important to us. That is when my wife, who is nutritionist took matters in her hands. She made these wonderful nutrition bars from oats and other natural ingredients and wonder seeds. I started carrying it around with me, they were delightful and yummy and most importantly full of flavor they became our (me and my friend) savior and most importantly kept us healthy and wise.
We received a gift of health in that little power packed bar. A treasure we decided to share it with all. Thus evolved Eat Any Time (E.A.T.) BARS, so that health was available for all, at all times to simply by E.A.Ting!”

My Opinion:-

E.A.T bars provide a healthy alternative to our wrong and unhealthy eating habits.

These bars are easy to carry in bag. TANGY ORANGE is my favourite flavour 🙂 Bambaiya chaat was mu not so favourite. I loved snacking on these bars while reading a book a sipping tea. They are also perfect to carry around in your purse. They are easily available on Amazon, Flipkart, Snapdeal and other shopping websites.

So, hope I was able to help you find a good snack. Follow me on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM. Write to me at barkha.vyas06@gmail.com
