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:-

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

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

The gel comes in a dark brown coloured plastic bottle. The packaging is quite attractive and very handy.IMG_6221.JPGIMG_6229.JPG

About the product:-

INATUR Tea Tree skin clarifying facial gel is an alcohol-free and PH balanced facial gel enriched with pure essential oils, herbal complexes and anti-oxidants that are especially good for people with oily skin type.

It helps to remove acne-causing bacteria, excessive oil and blackheads while hydrating the skin.

It contains Aloe Vera extracts- that heal and hydrate the skin, Turmeric extracts- that enhance skin complexion, Tea Tree oil- that controls sebum production and acne, Neem extracts- that have antiseptic and anti microbial properties and Vitamin E- that is another anti-oxidant.

Application of this product gives a brighter, hydrated and softer skin.IMG_6223

Ideal for:-

Oily and Normal skin

Direction to use:-

Apply the Tea Tree skin clarifying facial gel directly onto clean face lightly with your fingertips. Massage until it gets completely absorbed into the skin. Avoid eye contact.

My experience with Tea Tree Clarifying Facial Gel:-

The Tea Tree Clarifying Facial Gel is a clear gel that smells strongly of tea tree, neem, aloe vera and other herbal ingredients. The smell is very refreshing.

Firstly lets talk about the skin problems that I was facing before I started using this product. My acne and acne scars were out of control. It was like I had hit puberty all over again 😦

I started using the gel along with Inatur Oil control face wash and it is doing wonders to my skin. My acne has reduced significantly and my acne spots are becoming lighter. Also my skin has started glowing. The gel gets absorbed quickly and does not feel sticky on my skin. My skin has been feeling hydrated and smoother since I have started using this Tea tree Face gel. The tea tree oil cures acne and also cures the scars created by them.IMG_6282.JPG

  • Cures acne
  • Lightens acne spots
  • Cures acne scars
  • 100% natural and cruelty free
  • Sulphate free
  • Smells good
  • Easily available
  • Dermatologically approved
  • For all skin types

CONS:-

  • Expensive

Will I ever use the Tea Tree skin clarifying facial gel 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.

Hey Guys,

On the 9th December, 2017 I was invited to the launch of the biggest and the signature store of India. Caratlane is a Tanishq partnership opened their 30th store in India at Delhi’s South Extension. Well it was very cold that day but there was no way that those cold breezes could keep me from attending the launch of this fabulous store.

This store is CaratLane’s largest and first signature store in New Delhi; spread across 1800 sq ft. Situated in the fashion hub of the city, the store has a warm and welcoming ambience that is sure to amaze its customers. “Being our 30th Store launch and our first Signature store in North India, at CaratLane South Extension you will find the largest and widest collection of exquisite designs.

Contact: 9899002555

Lets talk a bit about their collection:-

There is no doubt that the store is huge and beautiful but nothing can beat the amazing pieces of jewellery. I was most impressed by their Jaipur, butterfly and floral collection. Being bought up in Jaipur I was blown away by the detailing of the collection. The Hawa Gulabi Jharokha Ring from the Jaipur collection was my absolute favourite. It did remind me of home. The butterfly collection was a huge hit amongst everyone. The pendents, rings and earrings could make for a beautiful set and stunning pieces on their own.

I am posting a few pictures of the store and their collection for you to enjoy. DSC_4221-A.jpgDSC_4196-A (1).jpg1512845168548IMG_20171210_002414_324IMG_20171210_002414_326IMG_20171210_002414_323.jpgIMG_20171209_121437_615.jpg
