One brand Morning and Night Skincare Routine ft. Khadi Naturals

Hello All,

Hope you all are doing great! In this post, I am going to share my skincare routine which is the most requested topic on my Instagram by many of you.  All the main products I use in this routine are from the single brand "Khadi Naturals". I have never tried a one brand skincare routine earlier and the bonus point is that all are herbal products.

If you don't know about this brand, then you check about it here: Khadi Naturals

I follow a 4 step process daily in my both morning and night time skincare routine and once in 2 days, the process includes 5 steps. The list of products I use are as listed below:

Morning routine - Facewash, Scrub, Toner, Day Cream, Sunscreen lotion
Night routine - Facewash, Toner, Sheet mask, Night cream, Undereye cream

Morning Skincare Routine:

1. Facewash: Anyday, the first thing with which we must start our day is by cleaning our face. The face wash I am currently using is Neem & Tulsi herbal face wash from Khadi Naturals.  It is really working on my oily skin and it is also helpful for people with acne problem. The only thing to remember while using this face wash is not to go too near the eyes as it will give little burning sensation if gone inside the eyes.

2. Scrub: Exfoliation is a process which is not necessary to follow daily. So I do scrub my face once in 2 days. The one I am using is the Herbal Exfoliating Almond and Honey facial scrub from Khadi Naturals. These scrubbing granules are a little harsh, so we have to be very gentle while scrubbing the face otherwise you will end up hurting your facial skin. It smells so divine and the results are very much visible.

3. Toner:  For toner, I use Rosewater. I have filled rose water into a spray bottle and just spray it all over my face and leave it there to settle on my face until it's completely absorbed.

4. Day Cream: After the toner is completely absorbed into the skin, I use a day cream. The one I am using currently is Herbal Day Cream from Khadi Naturals with Aloe vera extracts. This one also has a very pleasant smell and is a little greasy when applied more. So, a little bit of cream is enough to cover the entire face.

5. Sunscreen: Whether I am going out or staying at home, I won't skip this step. I use my holy grail sunscreen lotion in spray form which is from lotus herbals with SPF 50.

The last product is obviously a lip balm and I don't apply same lip balm daily as it depends on my mood :) With all these steps, my morning skincare routine will be completed.

Night time Routine:

1 & 2: During night time, the 1st step is also face wash and 2nd step is a toner. In these two steps, I use the products same as my morning skincare routine.

3. Sheet Mask: I won't follow this step daily. Once in 2 days, I use a sheet mask to give more hydration to my face.

4. Night Cream: I use Khadi Natural's Herbal Anti-aging cream with kokum butter as my night cream. This looks same as the day cream in color and texture and even smells the same. To avoid greasiness, just use a little bit of cream on the entire face.

5. Under Eye Gel: For my under eyes, I use Herbal under eye gel from Khadi Naturals. This is in gel form with the goodness of many oils in it. I just take a small amount of gel on my fingertips and massage it around my eyes in both clockwise and anti-clockwise directions for at least a minute.

And here also, the last thing to apply is lip balm. Thus, we have completed my nighttime skincare routine too. I am really in love with my skin after following a good skin care routine with all these products. I can clearly feel the difference in the texture of my skin. It has become really smooth, soft and extra glowy.

So, that's all for today's post. Hope you all like this skincare routine of mine. If you want to get more updates from me, don't forget to follow me on my social media accounts: Instagram, Facebook.

Until Next Time,
Take care.

Body Lotion with Tamarind Seed Extracts and Lip Balm without Bees Wax from Organic Harvest - Review

Hello, Everyone!!

Hope you are all doing good. I am writing this post after almost 6 months!!!! I knew that it was a really long gap but I will make sure not to repeat this again :) So, I am back with the most interesting product reviews again....yayyy!!! This time it's a new brand for me. I have neither talked about the brand earlier in any of my posts nor used any product from this brand earlier. And the brand name is "Organic Harvest"

I have received two products from them in the mid of December 2017 and using those till now. So, the first product is a Body Lotion and the second one is a Lip Balm. So, let's jump into the review of these two products and know more about the ingredients used.

About Organic Harvest:

In their words: "Organic skincare is an incredible concept that reflects healthy lifestyle since the products are derived from plants that have been grown without chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides, making them skin friendly. Organic Harvest is the first Indian homegrown brand which has an entire range of organic skin care, body care, and hair care products to offer to its consumers. The brand was launched in June 2013 after a thorough R&D of over two years. Global organizations like EcoCert, OneCert & Nature have certified the ingredients and raw materials that we use in our products which are free from any harsh chemicals, Parabens, Phthalates, mineral oil, PABA, petrolatum, paraffin or animal ingredients. 

Being one of the very few domestic players among a host of international brands, and also the first one to offer a complete range of products, has helped us in quickly capturing the attention of the target audience. Apart from the excellent quality of our products, our competitive pricing has resulted in a steady increase in repeat and referral customers merely seven months since the launch of the brand. 
We are targeting all those who believe in the concept of “safe skin” and who want to be-you-tiful, which signifies being beautiful while being you. Our products are conceived using eco-friendly practices without any harsh chemicals being used. This keeps the skin miles away from damage, exactly what our target customers are looking for."

Organic Harvest Body Lotion Review:

The first thing that immediately grabbed my attention after seeing this was a line written on the package: "with Tamarind Seeds Extract". I seriously had no clue that tamarind seeds can be used in beauty products. So let's check how does this lotion worked for me as I received this in peak winters where my skin used to become dry and scaly.

Product Description: Pamper your body with this lightweight hydrating lotion that reduces skin sensitivity. Containing natural moisturizing actives obtained from tamarind seeds, this marvel body lotion improves skin hydration and reduces skin roughness. It seeps deep into your skin to help repair the natural moisture deficiency in dry, dehydrated areas while handling the vital jobs of hydrating, energizing and protecting your skin.

Ingredients: Aqua, Tamarind Seeds Extract, Certified organic Sorbitan Olivate (emulsifier made from Olive Oil) and perfume in a Cream base. No Color Added.

How to Use: Apply liberally and evenly all over the body, ideally after a shower or bath on damp skin for supple, soft skin.

Price: Rs. 695/- for 100ml

Shelf life: 2years

Availability: You can directly buy from their official website mentioned above or from Amazon

My Experience with this Body Lotion:

I have been using this for last 2 months and I must say, this lotion is just amazing. The packaging is very attractive and comes in a pump bottle which is very easy to use. It also comes with a stopper kind of thing at the neck of the pump. Hence it is travel-friendly as it won't leak even a single drop of the lotion. The consistency is creamy and the lotion comes in white color. The fragrance of the lotion is so addictive and it stays strong up to 5-10mins after application.

This lotion is not heavy or oily like some other lotions which are used in the winter. It had made my skin smooth and gave a velvet finish to it. Even in the peak winters, I have not experienced any dryness or rough patches on my body, a big Thanks to the lotion. This is because of the active ingredient, Tamarind Seed. This tangy tropical fruit is a powerhouse of antioxidants, flavonoids and vitamin C and A, which help fight against the formation of free radicals. Tamarind, when applied on skin, soothes irritation and inflammation. It lightens the skin and reduces dark spots and pigmentation. Tamarind also makes the skin radiant and smooth.  Isn't it amazing??

  • Not greasy like many body lotions
  • Gives a silky smooth skin
  • Stays for a longer period of time if not washed off
  • Fragrance is so good
  • Travel-friendly packaging
  • Free of parabens, mineral oil and animal ingredients
Cons: I didn't find any. Maybe some people feel that the price is on the higher side.

Verdict: Best for the winter season and can be used even in summer also as it is not greasy.

Organic Harvest Lip Balm Review:

Product Description: A rich, natural moisturizing lip balm made with hydrating lanolin and natural wax, helps in retaining water, providing long-lasting moisturization, and removing blackness and dead skin cells.

Ingredients: Organically certified lanolin( derived from the oil in sheep's wool), BHT & food grade pomegranate flavor.

How to use: You can apply it by closing your lips together like you are going to kiss something, or simply smile with your lips closed, and apply the dome to both of your lips at the same time.

Price: Rs.199/- for 10gm

Availability: Can be purchased directly from official website and also from Amazon

My Experience with this lip balm:

Lip balms are the must-have products irrespective of the season to protect our lips. This lip balm comes in sphere shaped container and doesn't have any tint to it which means it doesn't add any color to our lips but it moisturizes the lips well. But remember to exfoliate the lips at least twice a week to avoid dry lips. Then only any lip balm can do its job. I haven't felt any hint of pomegranate flavor as mentioned in the ingredients list. But it tasted somewhat like artificial candies available on the market. Overall it's a decent enough lip balm which will not work on heavily chapped lips.

Verdict: If you want to add another lip balm to your collection, then you can buy it because of its cute looks. 

Hope you all enjoyed these reviews about the products from Organic Harvest and found them useful.

Face and Hair Masque from Valley View Organic - Review

Hello, People!!

Hope you are all doing great. Have you ever been to an Orchard? If yes, how was your experience? If no, then you must be thinking about how it will look. Don't worry people, as I am going to take you all into the beautiful 12 acres certified organic fruit orchard and farm stay in a tiny and quiet village called Kangar which is hidden away on a remote hilltop in the lower Himalayan ranges in Northernmost Punjab named "Valley View - Organic Orchard and Farm stay LLP". I have received two products from them for review purpose and in this post, I am going to share my views on them.

About the Brand:

This brand is owned by Yatan Ahluwalia and Jojo who are India's leading Image Consultant, Stylist, and Makeup, Hair artist respectively. Some info about the orchard in their words: "We bought this property in late 2008 and moved here from the hustle and bustle of the city in 2011. We grow about 42 types of seasonal and exotic fruits, a variety of vegetables and assortment of herbs. We produce our own pulses and wheat, milk our resident cows and process our oil and spices. All natural and all certified organic. We generate our own solar power and divert the surplus to the grid to power more homes. We make our own bio gas, organic manures, and boosters with natural materials and ingredients found on our property. Our entire estate is environmentally friendly and we try to be as self-sustainable as possible." Isn't this amazing!!??

They have recently launched these organic Hair and Face Masques which are organic and natural and are suitable for both men and women.

Hair Masque Review:

Product Description and Benefits: Organic and natural. Doesn't contain any color, chemical or preservatives. Handmade at our organic orchard in the Himalayas. This miracle all natural and organic hair masque reduces and stops hair fall, increases new hair growth, improves density and prevents premature graying.

Ingredients: Certified Organic Sun Dried Mango, Guava leaves and Curry leaves

Directions: Mix one tablespoon of powder in some warm water or oil of your choice to make a thin paste. Apply to your scalp and hair roots for about 20 minutes and then rinse with a natural shampoo and water. Use twice weekly.

Shelf Life: 6 months from manufacturing date.
Price: Rs. 325/- for 50gms
Availability: You can buy this product directly from their website: CLICK HERE

My Experience with this Hair Masque:

The masque comes in a paper pouch with ziplock. The packaging is quite basic and easily accessible. When not in use, we can simply zip lock the pouch. This masque is in the form of coarse powder and is in green color. It smells like the raw leaves and I didn't find the smell irritating. I kind of liked it. The tough task starts from the application. As it is in the coarse powder form, I found it very difficult to apply evenly onto the scalp. 

As per the directions, first I have applied the masque by mixing it with Patanjali's Amla oil. It requires more amount of oil for this masque than we normally use to massage our scalp. The mixture becomes quite thick even before applying. So I kept on adding the oil in between. I have applied on my scalp and entire hair and kept it for 30 minutes and washed my hair with shampoo and skipped the conditioner to check the results. I initially thought that this masque will make my hair rough and dry with tangles because of the tough time during application. But I was quite surprised to see my hair soft and tangle free even after skipping conditioner. My hair was smooth and manageable for the next two days. For the people with dry hair, I will suggest using this masque with curd. I didn't saw any changes in hair fall and dandruff and other claims as I am not using this as they said i.e, twice or thrice weekly.

  • Organic and Natural
  • No added preservatives and chemicals
  • Simple and effective ingredients
  • For both men and women
  • Suitable for all hair types
  • Time taking
  • Difficulty in application
  • Creates huge mess
Verdict: Not for busy or lazy people. Otherwise, you can try this without any doubts as this masque is suitable for all hair types.

Face and Body Masque Review:

Product Description and benefits: Organic and natural. Doesn't contain any color, chemical or preservatives. Handmade at our organic orchard in the Himalayas. Deep pore cleansing, prevents & controls acne, tightens the skin, brightens the tone, removes fine lines, stretch marks and reduces visible signs of aging. Leaves your skin feeling and looking younger, smoother & firmer.

Ingredients: Natural fuller's earth and certified organic sun dried mango, guava, neem leaves and citronella grass.

Application: Mix one tablespoon of powder with warm water to make a thick and smooth paste. Apply evenly except very close to the eyes and other sensitive areas. Allow it to dry for about 10 minutes, then rinse with water. Use twice weekly.

Shelf Life: 6 months from manufacturing date

Price: Rs. 325/- for 50gms

Availability: You can buy this product directly from their website: CLICK HERE

My Experience with this Face and Body Masque: 

The packaging is same as the hair masque. A paper pouch with zip lock and all the information about the masque. This comes in a finely powdered form. I really like the earthy fragrance of the mask. Unlike the hair masque, this masque is very easy to apply as it is in powdered form. They have mentioned mixing the mask with warm water, But I always love to use milk, curd or rosewater as the mixing agent because of the added advantages. I have used this mask with milk and I must say, it amazing as it has removed the tan from my face in just two uses (as the tan is very light) and brightened my skin. I cannot say anything about the remaining claims made by them as I don't have any other skin problems**touchwood**. This mask cleans the skin and the pores deeply and gives a fine, smooth and even skin tone.

  • Organic and Natural
  • No added preservatives and chemicals
  • Simple and effective ingredients
  • For both men and women
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • Easy to apply
Cons: No cons for me

Verdict: I would recommend this mask for people with any skin problems as regular usage might solve all your problems.

Organic and Pure Rose Water Review:

Product Description: 

The Greenberry Organic's Pure Rose Water Face Mist and Toner is a steam distilled preparation without any added colorants, preservatives and alcohol making it the safest and purest virgin water to be applied on your face. It cleanses, refreshes and rehydrates the skin after each use. The special preservation is done in the utmost hygienic steam distillation center without adding any preservatives to the pure and virgin water. Rose Water has long been used for its cosmetic benefit; its effect on the skin helps to soothe and calm, reducing redness and irritation. It has long been thought of as a tonic, and is used to treat blemishes and nourish the skin; whilst in aromatherapy, it is known for its uplifting qualities and is even said to have an aphrodisiac effect. The rose water is made in small batches and added to several of our fresh handmade products at the factory.

Directions: Spray evenly on the face when using as a toner and wipe off with clean cotton balls OR use as a face mist several times to get refreshed.

Ingredients: Pure Concentrated and Steam Distilled Rose Water | Pure Natural Glycerine

Claims: Cleans Skin, Hydrates and Nourishes

Shelf Life: 12 months from the date of manufacturing, 2 months after opening.

Price: Rs. 575/- for 100ml

My Experience with the Product:

As a Rose water addict, I was very much happy with this collaboration. I generally use rose water as my toner. So I have replaced this rose water from Greenberry Organics in the place of normal rose water.  This 100% Pure Natural and Organic Rose Water with its natural goodness make a unique multi purpose product which can be used in several applications.

This rose water comes in a spray bottle which is transparent and the color is somewhat cloudy. I mean not in a pink shade like some of the rose waters available in the market. The fragrance is so divine. It feels like a fresh rose in my hand. In the picture below, you can find rose mist from Greenberry Organics right side and rose water generally available in the market on the left. You can clearly see the difference between both of them and also there is so much difference in the fragrance. I am feeling it right now.

The nozzle of the spray bottle releases and spreads the water equally on the face. Just spray it from a distance of at least 6cm. Spraying this on your face makes you look fresh and hydrated for many hours. You can repeat the process as many times as you want. As it is pure, there is no harm in using many times.

My Top 5 Usages:
  1. As a Toner and Mist
  2. Mix with your favorite face pack: I use this rose water as the mixing agent to my favorite DIY face packs.
  3. For stress-free eyes: This is the main problem which most of us are facing these days as we spend most of our time in front of computers and laptops. This will make our eyes burn many times. To calm down the eyes, just take two cotton balls or two pieces of tissue paper and dip them in rose water and keep those balls on the eyes. Leave them until the rose water is completely dried. Repeat this process whenever needed.
  4. Hair perfume: We all face this problem when we use some pungent ingredients in our hair masks, for example, onion, garlic, egg, etc. Sometimes, the smell will not go even after washing the hair with shampoo. At that time, Just spray rose water on to the scalp and you will see(smell) the difference.
  5. For soothing the rashes and sunburns on body
  • Divine Fragrance
  • 100% organic and raw
  • No preservatives, colorants, and alcohol
  • Travel-friendly packaging
  • No cons except the price.
Final Verdict: Undoubtedly, this is the best rose water I have ever used till date. But the MRP is too high as we can get rose water at an affordable price in the market.

NOTE: Not meant for internal consumption. Please do not drink the product. If irritation occurs, stop using the product and rinse with cool and clean water immediately.
