HIMALAYA PUREHANDS HAND SANITIZER- REVIEW

Hey guys,

We live amongst the most unwanted germs. It is just impossible to avoid them but we can kill them before we use our hands for any important thing like meals.

The obsession of hygiene comes from the fact that I am a doctor and I always keep a sanitizer handy.  Hand sanitizers have made our life very convenient when there is no water or soap available.

Himalaya Herbals has a huge range of hand sanatizers in various flavors and various sizes. I have used 4 of their flavours:-

  • Green Apple
  • Strawberry
  • Litchi
  • Lemonwp-1527933413511..jpg

Key ingredients:

  • Hrivera is a strongly aromatic herb, which has antibacterial, deodorizing and cooling properties. It also softens hands.
  • Coriander is derived from the oil of a herb called Oil Coriandrol. The fruits of the herb possess antimicrobial and astringent properties.
  • Lime is a rich source of vitamin C. It protects the skin from oxidative damage and helps prevent itching. The oil of lemon warms the skin when applied externally. The juice also has bactericidal and astringent properties.
  • Ushira is an astringent and antibacterial herb. When applied externally, it removes excess heat from the body and provides a cooling effect.
  • Neem extracts possess antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties. The tree stem, root and bark have astringent, tonic and antiperiodic properties. Neem is used to treat skin diseases.

Directions for use:

Squeeze approximately 0.5 ml (coin-sized drop) of the gel on your palms. Rub well over the palms, back of hands, fingernails and grooves briskly, until dry. No water is required after use.

PureHands is absolutely safe for regular use. It contains moisturizer that prevent skin irritation and dryness. The product has been clinically tested, and its safety and efficacy is proven.

Price:

₹175 for 250 mlwp-1527933447699..jpgwp-1527933518011..jpgwp-1527933536424..jpgwp-1527933560567..jpg

My experience:

I have tried a lot of hand sanatizers and have had one of the best experience with Himalaya PureHands. A little quantity ( just a drop) is more than enough for both hands. The product comes in a transparent plastic bottle with a flip cap.

The fact that it comes in many flavors is very attractive. It is an effective, herbal, alcohol-based hand sanitizer, which kills 99.9% of germs, prevents infection, and ensures total hand hygiene. These sanatizers are more effective than soaps as they kill more bacteria and germs. I love that we can choose the fragrance that we like the most.

You can buy these hand sanatizers from amazon, nykaa, flipkart or your local skin care or medical stores.

Therefore, it was great to see a lip gloss in this box instead of a lipstick.

Also face oils are the hottest thing in skin care market. The BioBloom face oil is a good anti-aging oil. It smells of all the fantastic ingredients. Natural Bath & Body is loved by all. The smell of grapefruit is delicious. The cream is of good consistency and I will surly buy the full size cream after finishing off this sample.

Mama Earth C3 face Mask- Charcoal, Coffee & Clay face mask

Hey Guys,

It is an era of face masks. Everyone is ready to experiment and try with new skin care techniques. With so many variants and brands in the market, it’s so hard to choose the right one. Today I am going to help make your life easier and your skin brighter.

Mama Earth is a fantastic brand that concentrates on the health, welfare and beauty of both moms and babies. MAMAEARTH is one brand that helps in protecting you and your babies with safe, toxin-free, international standard products. In today’s post I will tell you about the benefits of The C3 mask by mama Earth. IMG_6207.JPG

About MamaEarth C3 Mask:-

C3 stands for Charcoal, Coffee and Clay.  After pregnancy your skin can lose their brightness, increase blemishes, increase pigmentation in skin. This mask is targeted at getting your glowing skin back. It also claims to reduce pigmentation of the skin, thereby giving you flawless skin. Charcoal helps with acne, Coffee stimulates the blood flow and removes toxins thereby smoothing away blemishes. Papaya, Mulberry & other fruit extracts improve skin elasticity and minimize the appearance of pores.

Ingredients:-IMG_6567

Price:-

Rs 599 for a 100 ml tub. You can buy the product from mamaearth.in, Amazon, Nykaa, Flipkart.

Directions to use:-

Apply a thick layer on the face and upper part of the neck, avoiding the eye area. Leave on to dry for 10 – 15 minutes. Remove the mask first by gently rubbing in circular motions for an overall exfoliation. Wash any excess with lukewarm water and gently pat dry. Recommended to use twice a week and to follow with your favorite moisturizer.

My Experience with the MamaEarth C3 Mask:-IMG_6211.JPGIMG_6213.JPGIMG_6218.JPGIMG_6220.JPG

The very first reason why I was attracted and impressed by this brand is their focus on the welfare of mothers and their babies. The Mask is an amazing product. The three main ingredients ( charcoal, clay, coffee) go perfectly well with each other.

The packaging is very secure as the mask comes in a plastic tub with a screw top cap and spill proof seal. The texture of the mask is thick and earthy, It smells of coffee and clay. The claims that are absolutely true about this mask are that this mask is good at exfoliation, it does makes your face looking fresh and bright. The face mask also claims to reduce pigmentation and lighten dark spots but I did not see my dark spots lightening even after using the mask for more than a month.

Pros:-

  • 100% toxin free
  • Full of fruit extracts – mulberry, cucumber, and papaya
  • Brightens skin tone
  • Reduces inflammations like redness, pimples and acne
  • Good quantity for a decent price
  • Does great exfoliation removes dead cells
  • Natural product
  • Especially designed for mothers

Cons:-

  • A bit drying
  • Bulky packaging
  • Doesn’t reduce dark spots or pigmentation

I hope you find this review helpful. This product was sent to me in a PR package but this review is absolutely honest. I will soon be back with another post. Until then please follow me on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.

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

Greenberry Organics Mudash 3 in 1- Mask, Scrub and Cleanser- Review

Hey Guys,

Today I am talking about  a product that has great multitasking capabilities. It’s the monsoon season and we need products like this for our skin care. Those rain drops do make our heart happy but our skin is a sensitive topic. The Mudash 3 in 1 by Greenberry organics is a mask, scrub and cleanser all in 1. BeautyPlus_20170702102637_save.jpg

About Mudash 3 in 1:-

IMG_5898.JPG

It’s a mask, scrub and cleanser in one. It contains 100% natural ingredients. If your skin is tired and dull this is your product. It is a real  jar of happiness. Also being paraben and sulphate free it is very skin friendly.

Well, now is that savoury moment. Do you also use the words “problem” and “skin” in the same sentence and that too with a negative tone! It’s time we change that with our 3 in 1 formula that has cleanser, scrubber and mask packed in one. The biggest WOW factor use it daily as a cleanser, twice as a scrubber or right before those happening weekends as a mask and your skin will thank you every minute for this super pampering care. Product is free from Silicons, Mineral Oil, Petrolatum, DEA, TEA, Phthalates, Phosphates, Artificial fillers.

Price and Quantity :-

Rs 595 for 100 Gms

Ingredients:-

Aqua Kaolin, China Clay, Zinc Oxide, Bentonite Powder, Turmeric Powder, Isopropyl Myristate, Kaolin Clay , Glycerine , Aqua , Aloe Vera Extracts , Activated Charcoal, Phenoxy Ethanol , Xanthan Gum, Tea Tree Extracts, Jojoba oil, Clove oil, Vitamin C, Fragrance, Vitamin E.IMG_5877.JPGimg_5888.jpg

How To Apply:-

Use the product on a slightly damp face as a mask, apply all over the face liberally (Avoid direct contact with eyes, mouth and nostrils). Let the product stay for 10-15 minutes. Once the product dries out, slightly damp the face with Greenberry Organics Miracle Face Mist or with normal cold water. Wash  the product off the face gently and slowly. Feel the difference.IMG_5885.JPGIMG_5882.JPGIMG_5889.JPG

My experience with Greenberry Organics Mud Ash 3 in 1 Face care :-

It comes in a good quality see through plastic jar. It has double lid protection, a black cap followed with a transparent cover.

The colour of the product is grey and the texture is thick and granular. It’s smell is very pleasant, that of tea tree extracts.

The monsoon season can clog your pores and do a lot of harm to that gorgeous skin. This product is a mask, cleanser and scrub in one. The tree tea extracts are excellent anti bacterial agents and the activated charcoal helps detoxify your skin. Clay also helps your skin from sagging ( and no one wants their skin to drop down with the rain drops). The granules are just of the right size to act as scrub. It helps remove all the dead and flaky skin.

Over  using the product (More than twice a week) or using a lot of quantity can cause your skin to dry out. The product has me in love with it mainly coz it worked just fine without causing any breakouts. 🙂

PROS:-

  • Nice packaging
  • Works great as a scrub, cleanser and mask
  • Cruelty free
  • Sls and paraben free
  • Made from natural ingredients
  • Removes all dead skin
  • detoxifies the skin
  • Priced well for the quantity
  • Makes the soft and supple
  • smells great

CONS:-

  • Using a lot of quantity and using it for more than 3 minutes can dry out your skin

In conclusion I love this product and am very glad to share it with my family.
