My take on Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask:

Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is one of the best-selling products of Innisfree and I heard a lot about this one so, thought of giving it a try. The product is a grey colored clay mask, and has a very thick texture not too creamy.  I spray on some water on my face and evenly apply it over my face. As I said it is not too creamy it doesn’t spread evenly and also its starts drying soon. It takes around 6-7 minutes to completely dry up, doesn’t feel stretchy and it kind of has herbal fragrance. I use it once a week for 15 mins and wash it off with water. It definitely controls the oil on my face until the next day, also it helps shrink the appearance of pores. The product claims to remove blackheads but sadly it doesn’t work on black heads at all. What I love about Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask is that it leaves my skin with a healthy glow right after i use it.

If you have Oily and combination skin type and not having too much concern about blackheads you can go for this product and I do not recommend it to people having dry skin.

Overall rating: 4/5

Pros of  Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask:

  • Control oil
  • Tighten pores
  • Controls sebum
  • Boosts  healthy glow
  • Leaves skin softer
  • Travel friendly

Cons of Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask:

  • Doesn’t remove black heads

Hey People, Welcome back!  Today I am going to review Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream for you guys.

Plum is an amazing brand which is  natural and contains environment-friendly ingredients. Plum is completely free of Parabens, propylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS), PABA and any of the animal derived ingredients.  Plum has been a very trusted brand and I absolutely love the products from Plum skincare. I have used the Day cream from the same range, also I love the Plum Green Tea range. I always wanted to use a night cream and that’s when I chose the Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream. So, to know how it worked for me keep reading..

Price: INR 550

Quantity: 50ml

Shelf Life: 2 years from the date of manufacturing

What does the brand claim about Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream?

This is a potent night cream that you will love to leave on and wake up with. Prevents dryness from causing new creases, while grape seed and sea buckthorn oil nourish, heal and repair skin. The secret of sleeping beauty.

Ingredients of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

Ingredients of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

They have these amazing ingredients which have multiple benefits for a healthy looking skin.

Packaging of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

The packaging of this night cream looks beautiful. This night cream comes in a glass tub and has a plastic screw lid. As it has a glass packaging it becomes heavy to carry along so not a travel friendly option. The glass is of a very good quality but after all it is glass and definitely it can break if it slips off from your hands. So the packaging could have been better.

Texture of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

It is a little bit on thicker side and is creamy white in color. Glides on smoothly and you need just a little amount of it on your skin.

Fragrance of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

It has a nice fragrance, not too light not too strong. I like the fragrance of the product.

How to use?

Cleanse your face with a good cleanser, take a pea sized amount of product and dot it on your face and neck, massage gently into your skin until it absorbs (absorbs real quick) and let it stay overnight.

 

 

My take on Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

So, I am using this product since a long time now. It helps soften my skin for sure but the cream is thick and it doesn’t let me forget it’s existence on my skin. Now that I have already got my hands on this I decided to try how it works, so I personally did not find any great effects on my skin but it does hydrates my skin to a great extent. The night cream get absorbed easily but I still feel something on my skin. It works for me just the way any other good hydrating moisturizer would work. I love using plum skincare so, no hate towards the brand but the product could have really been better and Yes it definitely doesn’t have any side effects on my skin.

Pros of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

  • 100% vegan and cruelty-free.
  • Paraben free.
  • It is easy to apply.
  • No side effects.

Cons of Plum Grape Seed and Sea Buckthorn Night Cream

  • Packaging is not travel friendly.
  • Heavy on skin.

Will I repurchase it?

Well, No I will not.  This can be a good option for people with extremely dry skin as it is a good moisturizing night cream. I have a combination skin type and it doesn’t work for me. So, not recommended to combination and oily skin types.

Ratings: 3.5/5

See you soon guys. Lots of love to you ❤ Take care 🙂

So we are going to include all these steps in our facial and get a super supple and glowing skin. Let’s get started.

  1. Cleansing

For cleansing we need fresh AloeVera gel and a lemon. Yes cleansing skin is this easy! Take 2 teaspoons of AloeVera gel and 1 teaspoon of lemon juice and few drops of rose water to it. Mix it well and massage it on clean face.  Massage well in circular motion to let the goodness of it absorb into your skin. Let it just be for 5 minutes and wipe it off with a clean wet towel or a wet cotton ball.

  1. Exfoliating

While doing facial it is extremely important to exfoliate your skin to get rid of all the dead skin cell on your skin and for that we need is AloeVera and Rice flour. Put some rice flour on to the AloeVera and scrub it onto face and if you are using AloeVera gel mix the rice flour to it and use. Rice flour helps in brightening skin and can be used as a mild scrub for sensitive skin. Scrub gently for 2-3 minutes. And let it stay it on your skin while you do the next step Steaming.

  1. Steaming

So guys this is an optional step. There are many people who are not comfortable with steaming. So if you skip this step wipe your face with wet towel when done with exfoliating.

  1. Toning

After scrubbing my face I like to use a toner and a very mild toner is Rose water. So, you can just spray some rose water after Exfoliating also you can make a toner using AloeVera gel and rose water.

AloeVera gel and rose water

  1. Moisturizing

The last and the most important step is moisturizing. For that you need 1 Vitamin E capsule. Take some AloeVera gel add in 1 Vitamin E capsule to it and mix it well. Apply it on face and leave it on for good 30 minutes. Vitamin E oil is sticky and can make your skin feel oily but it nourishes your skin a lot and helps you give a soft, supple and moisturized skin. Wash it off with luke warm water after 30 minutes.

The remaining extracted AloeVera gel i store it in refrigerator for like 3-4 days and apply it every night.

IMG20181120150251

Fresh AloeVera gel

How often should this facial be done?

You can do this facial once in 15 days.  I also recommend applying fresh AloeVera gel every night to keep skin nourished, irritation free, soft and glowing. Also with regular use of AloeVera gel you can find your skin to be spotless and youthful. Also remember this is not going to happen overnight. Regular use will definitely give you best results.

Review on Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub..

Hello Fam, hope you are all doing well..

Exfoliation of skin is very important for beautifully smooth and fresh skin and for exfoliation you need good scrubs. You should be very clear while choosing a right scrub for your skin. I am very fond of trying different types of scrubs but I am very choosy too. If you have a sensitive and combination to oily skin type and searching for a good scrub, I am here with a review on Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

Consistency of Fabindia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub

My take on FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub:

Well, gel scrubs feel very light and smooth over skin, I always prefer gel based scrubs over cream based scrubs. This pretty gel scrub comes in a transparent tub with a golden screw lid that opens in a circular motion along with that it has a white lid on the inside to avoid spillage of product. The gel in it looks very attractive which has green and brownish particles of the neem leaves and walnut shell. The particles are very mild & not too rough on skin which makes it perfect for delicate skin and is great exfoliating scrub for combination and oily skin type. It has a very natural fragrance of tulsi and neem leaves that stays for a very little while and then fades away. It’s said to  be face and body scrub but honestly I prefer using it only on face because it is very mild which I think won’t work well on body, also a lot amount of scrub will be needed for body which will not go for a long time.

So basically, it is an antibacterial exfoliator which is good for preventing acne and giving a cooling effect and smooth skin. Whenever I use this product it gives me a nice cooling effect and makes my skin feel fresh and soothing. I personally love this product. I use it 2-3 times a week it can be used on alternate days as it is very mild and will not irritate skin. Also on sunny days you can use it by refrigerating to get even more cooling effect.

Pros of FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

  • Natural & light Fragrance
  • Not at all greasy as it is gel based
  • Mild granules which are not at all harsh over skin
  • Perfect for sensitive skin and oily skin
  • Not too expensive considering the quality and quantity

Cons of FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub.

  • It comes in a tub which can be unhygienic.

Other than that I did not really find any cons.

Will I repurchase the product?

Yes, I will but I have to try even more products so that I can review them for you guys 😛

So, for now I definitely recommend FabIndia Neem Tulsi Face & Body Gel Scrub to you. Use it and let me know your reviews also let me know if you have already used it and revert back if this review was useful for you.
