I have been really excited about this product because of the carbon content in it and have been dying to try it out. And, of course, it wasn’t available in the stores for quite a long time so when I came across this unexpectedly in Spencers, I grabbed it up. So, lets check if it was really worth that excitement?
Price: Rs 75 for 50 gms
It looks a cute and classy in its black packaging and draws attention. It has a flip top.
Well, I would say it has been both good and bad. As you all know, I am troubled with a very moody skin which is oily and dry both at its will and wish so I need a product which will take care of both these things. And, since the weather these days is cooling off and getting drier, that’s definitely taking a toll on my skin. So, first time, I used the face wash, I saw that my face was neither dry nor stretchy and was completely clean. I could stay for a complete night without a moisturizer too. It did becomes stretchy after a while though but that’s not really any face wash’s fault. I am supposed to moisturize.
Now, the product is grayish in color and as with other face washes, it foams a lot in a very less product so you would really want to use less of the product every time coz a little more of the product does cause dryness. I noticed that. If I take a good amount of product, it does cause my skin to go dry and I have to moisturize immediately but if I stick with just a bit, my skin is very comfortable. And, regarding its ability to control the oiliness, I think oil doesn’t come back for an hour or so. But, that’s not something I really expected from this.
I think it is worth a try, definitely!!!
So, guys!!! I am back with a little different product review. I went to TBS in February and came across the body shop wooden shaving brush. It was really soft and amazing so I thought about gifting it to a friend of mine who had birthday around the same time.
The Body Shop Wooden Shaving Brush Product Review
Price: Rs 495
Obviously, I haven’t used the body shop wooden shaving brush but only rubbed the bristles on my skin and the bristles are so soft and don’t really hurt the skin at all as opposed to other shaving brushes available. Now, I don’t know how many people still use the shaving brush (since the advent of Gillete gels and foams and all) but it really glides on the skin without hurting it or scratching is what I have been told. It is supposed to have been made from synthetic hair and it really feels so.
This is my first haul of The body shop and I got quite a few products in my stash now. For today, I shall be talking about the body shop spiced vanilla body scrub. So, let us start.
The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Body Scrub Product Review
Price : Rs 875 for 200 ml (very expensive, though it seems normal now!!)
Let us start with smell. It just smells awesome – vanilla with a lot of hint of spice. The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Body Scrub is creamy colored inclining towards brown due to cocoa butter and has a lot of spice and walnut shells. The walnut shells may feel harsh for the first time. I think sensitive skin should pass on. But, the second and third time were amazing with the scrub.
Using it after shower when the skin is thoroughly wet and warm, the butter gets absorbed well and moisturizes the skin from inside. And, the granules do not feel that harsh. The Body Shop Spiced Vanilla Body Scrub is extremely creamy and moderately thin in consistency so it keeps on sticking to the cap of the tub if it gets tilted or turned upside down.
I have used two major products from Ponds till date. One was good and one was bad. So, lets get on with both.
Ponds Flawless White Deep Whitening Facial Foam
Price : Rs 175 for 100gms
I bought it impulsively because I liked the packaging extremely. But, it is more of a hate now because the face wash is not getting over even after my using it daily. I have been using it since a really long time and I am bored now. An extremely small quantity is enough to cover the face and neck completely (it foams a lot and I mean really a lot !!) and the product goes a long way. But, it does nothing to my skin so I have no special reason to want it to stay forever.
My first experience with the product was that wow, it really works. But, that was probably the only first reaction. Because, from the next day on, it really showed nothing. Instead, it really makes you wonder if the product is really worth it. It has extremely small beads which are supposed to be exfoliating but they are so small that you can not even feel them on your skin after application.
