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.

Yours,
Thanmayee.

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??

Pros:
  • 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.


Yours,
