Apricot Body Scrub from JUNAILI - Review

Hey, Lovelies!!!
What's up?? Today this post is going to be extra special as it's about body care. Yes, you heard it right!! I am going to introduce you all to this amazing body scrub from a brand called JUNAILI. This scrub is made with the goodness of apricots.
Just like our facial skin, the skin on the body needs exfoliation too. This process helps in removing dead skin cells, dullness thus making our skin look fresh and radiant. We often neglect the skin on our hands and legs because of which they get age quickly. Let's check the detailed review of this scrub and know more about the company.

Apricot Body Scrub - Review:

Product Description: Made in the Himalayas from the finest Apricots, this gentle exfoliating scrub is pure and chemical-free. For best results, combine the scrub with water or milk. Suitable for all skin types.

Ingredients: 


Price: Rs. 250/- for 125gm

Shelf Life: 12 months.


Availability: You can buy their products from the below mentioned links:

And also do follow Juniali on their social media for regular updates. 

My Experience:

As I have mentioned already in my first impressions post on my social media, this scrub comes in a cute little see through plastic bottle with a metallic lid. The packaging is perfect, classy and the quality of the bottle is too good. The scrub comes in powdered form.



The fragrance of the scrub is nutty and I liked it very much. If you are also a person who loves dry fruits and nuts like me, then this nutty fragrance does not bother you.
Application of the scrub is very easy. As mentioned on the bottle you can mix this scrub either with water or with milk until you achieve the desired consistency. I have tried using this scrub with both water and milk. When used it along with milk, the skin becomes nourished and moisturized a bit more than when used it with water. So it completely depends on you. If your skin is extra dry and scaly, mix the scrub with milk otherwise, use it with water.





Cleaning the scrub is also very easy. You can spill a few drops of the water on the dried scrub and gently exfoliate the skin on your hands and legs. By doing this, you can remove the dead skin cells easily and helps in achieving smooth and silky skin. I felt that my skin was way smoother and radiant than before. For the product to be effective, you need not use more at once. Just a tablespoon full of the scrub has been enough for both your hands and legs. So it is affordable too. And the best part of this scrub is it is suitable for all skin types.

Pros:
  • Made only with Apricots
  • Removes dead skin cells very easily
  • Hydrates skin very well
  • Chemical free
  • The Packaging is quite impressive
  • Suitable for all skin types
  • I really liked the nutty fragrance
  • Not at all hard on the skin
  • Affordable
Cons:
  • I really didn't find any

Final Words: Without any second thoughts, you can buy this, Just have a look at the pros, cons and you are good to go. I am damn sure you will love this product. I am now thanking my friends who introduced me to this product. So now it's your turn. Buy and use the product and thank me later :)

Note: I have experimented by applying this scrub to my face and its a failure. My skin got some tiny red rashes, but they are gone in less than a few minutes. They have clearly mentioned it as the body scrub but out of enthusiasm, I have tried it on my face. So it's better to avoid using this scrub on your face.

That's all for this post guys. We will be back again with amazing product reviews.
Until then, Stay Tuned.

Yours,

The Wedding season is on and traveling is a must when we have any of our relatives or friends marriage. While traveling, we might have thought many times about an all in one skincare product to reduce the weight of our luggage.

Keeping all these problems in their mind, Greenberry Organics have come with a miraculous product. It's their Mud Ash 3 in 1. Do you know, this product is gaining much hype these days as it has been awarded the "best seller" badge so many times. And it is worth all the hype.

Mud Ash 3 in 1 Review:


Product Description:

The biggest wow factor - use it daily as a Cleanser, twice a week 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.

***Follow the above instructions carefully for better results***

Shelf Life: 24 months from manufacturing date. But once opened, use within 6 months.

Price: Rs. 499/- for 100 gm. 

Availability: You can buy Greenberry Organic's products directly from Amazon.

****Hurry up, guys!! As it is the best selling product, it will get sold out in a blink of an eye and also always keep an eye on restocking****

My Experience:

The packaging of the product is just perfect. It comes in a small tub like plastic see-through container which is safe and easy to use. It comes with the protective lid to avoid spillage. The lid of the container can be kept very tight. Thus the product is travel-friendly too.


The color of the product is dark Grey and the consistency is thick. This mud-ash has small granules in it which are neither hard nor soft. It glides very smoothly on the skin even though it has granules in it. The product has a strong fragrance of tea tree and it doesn't bother you even if you have a very sensitive nose. I liked the fragrance very much. As soon as I opened the lid, it is the fragrance of the product which attracted me more towards it.



Coming to the usage, please follow the above-mentioned instructions carefully. I have tested this product in the mentioned 3 ways and I am very much impressed with the product soon after the first usage. It works very effectively in eliminating dirt and excess oil from the face so 30 seconds of time is more than enough to use it as a cleanser.
As I said above, this comes with granules which are very helpful in exfoliation. They do the job very efficiently. But be very gentle while rubbing your face as those granules might hurt your skin. Soon after cleaning your face, apply your regular moisturizer. My facial skin really felt baby soft and smooth after using this.


You will start noticing the results soon after the first usage. It not only helps in removing dirt and excess oil but also helps in fighting with dead skin cells. As I don't have pimples(touch-wood), I cannot comment anything on its effect on acne prone skin. But yes, it helps in lightening the dark spots if you have any. Coming to the effectiveness, it gives an instant glow and shine to the skin and makes the skin feel more supple and smooth than before. The best part of this product is it can be used by people with any skin type and gender. As it is 100% natural, it is very safe to use on your face.

Pros:
  • Works very effectively in all the 3 ways
  • Gives softer, smoother and suppler skin than before
  • Reduces blemishes
  • Removes dirt and excess oil efficiently
  • Works great on white heads
  • Travel friendly
  • Against Animal Testing
  • 100% Natural and Vegan product
  • Worth the Price
  • Suitable for men also.
Cons:
  • Didn't find any.
PPD Rating: 5/5
Final Words: It is the best product I have ever used. Trust me and try your hands on this Mud Ash 3 in 1. You will never regret your decision.

I had an amazingly awesome experience with the products from Greenberry Organics. They are effective, worthy and does what they claim.

Natural Skin Whitening Bleach for Brighter and Clear skin

It’s hard to estimate the importance of taking care of your skin. It’s the body's largest organ and is the first line of defense against infection and disease. So, if you notice dark spots or any skin pigmentation issues, you definitely need to prevent further damage. We can fix a lot of pigmentation problems using natural products.
The Dangers of Skin-Whitening Treatments:
Typically, hydroquinone and mercury have been the main ingredients used in skin-bleaching products. They work by inhibiting the production of melanin, the chemical that turns skin darker in the short term. However, recent research shows that in the long term these ingredients can be toxic. In fact, these ingredients can darken the skin and cause premature aging if used for extended periods of time. Fortunately, we have a number of natural whitening ingredients that work just as well as the synthetic ones, without the harmful side effects. These natural ingredients help in:
1. Absorbing harmful UV rays from the sun.
2. Inhibiting the production of melanin in the skin, which causes the dark pigmentation.
Instead of the skin whitening treatments, we suggest you to use natural ingredients to sort out your skin problems.

This is an amazing home remedy which is a Natural facial bleach that helps you whiten your skin easily at home. This bleach has no harmful chemicals and does wonder for your skin, it brightens and lightens your skin tone just within 15 days.
Required:
  • Freshly grated apple – 1 tablespoon (preferably green apple)
  • Plain curd or yogurt – 1 teaspoon
  • Fresh lemon juice – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Baking soda or Baking powder – 1 pinch
  • Honey – 1/2 teaspoon 
Directions:
Take a clean bowl, add freshly grated apple, a pinch of baking soda and all the remaining ingredients to a bowl. Mix it well for a good consistency. Apply it on your clean face and neck and avoid the under eye area. Leave it for 15 minutes and wash it off with cold water. 

Use this bleach every day for 15 days to get the white and tighter skin. After that, continue using it twice a week.  You can store this mixture in the refrigerator for 2-3 days. You can also use this bleach on your hands, legs and other exposed areas to remove tanning.

Do not add baking soda or powder more than a pinch, because it will dry out your skin very easily and using large amounts of baking soda will burn and damage your skin.

Tip: Apply an essential oil onto the face after using the pack so that it can reduce the dryness on the skin if any.


Here are some more affordable methods to lighten your skin naturally:

1. Yogurt:  Yogurt, a by-product of milk, has many nutrients that are good for the skin. It also contains lactic acid that has bleaching properties. Usually, Yogurt is suitable for all skin types.
How to use:
Mix one tablespoon of fresh yogurt with the one-half tablespoon of honey. Apply the mixture on your face and neck. Leave it on for 10 to 15 minutes and then wash it off with warm water. Do this daily to improve your skin tone and complexion.



2.Oranges:  The most important ingredient in skin care is vitamin C, which you can get in abundance from oranges. Oranges have bleaching properties that can lighten your skin tone
How to use:
Mix two tablespoons of orange juice and a pinch of powdered turmeric (preferably wild turmeric). Apply this mixture on your face and neck. You can also apply it on your hands and legs. Wash it off after 20 to 30 minutes. Do this daily.


3. Gram Flour:  Gram flour is one of the best ingredients for people who wish to lighten their skin complexion.
How to use:
Mix some gram flour with small amounts of rose water, lemon juice, and tomato puree to make a thick paste. Initially, scrub the face and finally add some more water and apply it as a face pack. Wash it clean with warm water after it dries off completely.


4. Honey:  Honey works as a bleaching and moisturizing agent for the skin. Dry skin is a common factor that contributes to an uneven skin tone. Honey also has antibacterial properties that can help fade uneven spots and acne scars.
How to use:
Apply pure honey onto your face, leave it for a few minutes and then wash it off with lukewarm water. This simple remedy will help remove dead skin cells, making your skin appear brighter and fresher than before. Do this once daily.


5. Lemons:  The lemons work as a natural bleaching agent for the skin and the high amount of vitamin C in them encourages new cell growth. Also, lemons have antioxidants that are very good for skin complexion. This also makes the skin itchy for the people with sensitive skin so beware before using it alone.
How to use:
Mix together one teaspoon each of lemon juice, powdered milk, and honey. Apply it on your skin and leave it on for 15 to 20 minutes before rinsing it off. Do this daily or every other day. Apply some essential oil after rinsing with water.


That's all for this post guys. Hope these methods are helpful for the people who want to lighten their skin. Try out these methods instead of using the ready-made bleaching products.
