Greenviv Toner & Face Pack - Review

Hello, everyone!!!

How are you all doing?? As promised earlier, we are back with another natural/organic/handmade product reviews. Today's reviews are about products from a brand called "Greenviv". These are from their face care collection: " Toner & Face pack".


About Greenviv in their words:

"We dream that one day, every woman will LOVE what she sees in the mirror!
At Greenviv we love women! We love every single one of you gorgeous ladies, no matter what age, shape, size, or color you are. Greenviv founder, Meenakshi, is passionate about the role women play in today’s society, and how we can make life better for women everywhere. We also hope that we can help people to adopt a more natural way of life driven by a sense of community and care for our planet.

We also insist on assurances from suppliers that none of the ingredients are tested on animals, either."

I have received two products from them for review purpose and in this post, I am sharing my honest reviews on those products.

1) Aloe Vera & Lemongrass Toner:

About the Product: Greenviv's aloe vera and lemongrass toner is a natural and herbal toner which is handmade. It claims to hydrate the skin and make it feel fresh.

Directions: Use as a toner after cleansing or to refresh during the day.
Ingredients:
Price: 299/-
My Experience with this Toner:
The packaging of the toner is very cute, handy and travel-friendly. It comes in a plastic transparent bottle which is re-usable. The application of the toner is very easy as it comes in a spray bottle. If you are also lazy like me, you will love the packaging as we don't need to search for cotton pads daily. You can simply spray it on your face and neck directly by closing your eyes.

As soon as I sprayed it on my face, I was unable to tolerate the strong fragrance of Apple Cider Vinegar(ACV). Yes, it contains ACV which has many benefits for the skin. I have a very sensitive nose and I couldn't able to tolerate that strong fragrance. I personally felt that they should have mentioned ACV as main ingredient on the front side of the bottle. Keeping fragrance aside, it really hydrates the skin and keeps it fresh for many hours. So it does what it claims.

Pros:
  • Packaging
  • Hydrates skin
  • Long lasting freshness
  • Easy application
  • Travel friendly
  • Natural and Handmade
Cons:

  • Very strong fragrance
PPD Rating: 4/5

Final words: If you can tolerate the strong smell of ACV, then you should give it a try as it does what it claims and also the ingredients are very beneficial for many skin problems.

2. Cucumber, Papaya & Beetroot Face pack:

About Product: This face pack comes with the goodness of cucumber, papaya and beetroot which helps in giving a glowing skin. This is also a natural and handmade product which is 100% vegetarian.
Directions: Use after cleansing smooth on face and neck avoiding the eye area and allow to dry. Rinse off with warm, then cold water.
Ingredients:
Shelf Life: 1 Year
Price: 299/- for 50gms
My Experience with the Product:
This face pack comes in a small transparent plastic tub. The lid of the tub is very delicate and easily breakable. The face pack is in red color with thick solid consistency and soon after seeing the product, we can make sure that it is made with all natural ingredients. The smell of the product is not so soothing at the same time not so hard. After applying, it forms a thick layer on the skin and burns a bit which is bearable. Cleaning the mask may require some extra efforts as it is very thick in consistency. This face pack made my skin fresh and glowing after first use. But, I had small breakouts on my facial skin the next day. It made my skin a bit dry. May be it is not suitable for my skin type.

Pros:
  • Gives glow to the skin
  • Makes the skin feel fresh
  • 100% vegetarian
  • Affordable ( as it lasts for many uses because of the thick consistency)
Cons:

  • Packaging
  • Skin type is not mentioned
PPD Rating: 3.8/5

Final Words: Make sure of the skin type for which it suits before buying.

  7. Having a green perspective in body products is needed today. Handmade organic products are really good for the skin. Especially face packs and toners. We should avoid chemical products as much as we can.
