HydromaxCT cream review

Heya!

How are you all? ๐Ÿ™‚

Today,I will be reviewing an intensive hydrating cream by Ethicare Remedies.They offer high quality skin care and hair care products of every type.Dermatologists actually recommend this Gujarat based brand.I came across them when I was looking for alternative treatments for my eczema and dry skin problem,which was at its peak during this winter.

I read in an article that coal-tar helps in dry skin and prevents flaking of skin.Don’t get me wrong! I know this sounds crazy but I would say,ultimately every cure is bounded to nature.

So I have been using this cream since January,2015,and I would say I am impressed.

Availability That’s a problem!You can order from their site only.The product will reach you within a week.

Price & quantity- INR 199 for 100g which is cheap.The quantity is so much that this will last you a long time.Only a small amount is required in each usage.

Smell & color- Weird smell,maybe its coal tar.It looks like a thick pale brown cream.

Packaging- White plastic tumbler with screwed lid.I didn’t like it because there are harsh edges which hurt my fingers sometimes when I am opening the lid.Inside,there was a foil type covering on the cream,which I tore it off so that I can take out the cream efficiently. ๐Ÿ˜› Some people may not like this type of packaging as you have to dip your fingers every time you are using it,so it’s unhygienic. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

My views- I have eczema on my fingers and I had it on my face too in the winters.I tried it on my fingers and I will say ,it actually keeps them moisturised.The texture is greasy,mind you!So it will stain anything you hold. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ But the good part is its staying power.It is so thick that in spite of washing my hands with water,eating food and doing work,the cream stayed on my hands.With time,the greasiness disappears.Due to presence of coal tar,my eczema appeared to reduce,but didn’t go away fully.It is still there,but minutely.

I tried it on my face too and it was a huge mistake.It increased the itching and I scratched myself till my skin became red.But I did notice,in the process of scratching,I removed the flakiness.Infact,on my fingers also,the flakiness reduced.I would say,you can use this for your body,not face!!!!.Due to the thick nature of the cream,it will cause acne.

Also,during winters,due to the presence of shea butter,kokum butter,paraffin wax and oils,this freezes.But come summers,the cream melts a little.

Overall verdict,people who have dry skin issues or eczema,can try this product,but only at night.I apply this at night,wear my cotton gloves and wake up to soft hands. ๐Ÿ™‚

They also have other products which you can check out on their site.

Aroma treasures Aloe Vera face wash review

Heya!!

Today,I have come up with another herbal brand product review.The brand is Aroma Treasures.This brand offersย numerous skin care and hair care products which are shampoos,conditioners,essential oils,body wash,face wash etc. Basically,they deal with aromatherapy which is quite the rage in this world of chemicals.All of us crave something organic nowadays.

To know about them more and see their entire catalogue listing,head over to this site.

I am always on the lookout of anything herbal.I want a product which has herbal contents,works on my body and is within a budget.And I have found this in Aroma treasures. ๐Ÿ™‚

Lately,I have been obsessed with Aloe Vera,so when I saw this product on Nykaa.com,I immediately bought it.The moment I received it,I had used it on my face.Since then I have been using it.

Packaging- This came in a paper packaging.Plastic pump bottle with a small nozzle.I liked the nozzle very much because unlike other pump dispensers,this one will dispense little amount at a time.Two pumps are enough for the face and neck.It is a tight packaging so travel friendly.

Price and quantity- INR 185 for 100ml so its cheap. ๐Ÿ˜›

Fragrance- Aloe vera doesn’t have a smell so this doesn’t have too.

Texture- Transparent gel which doesn’t lather much.People who are lather lovers,will not like this,I suppose. :-\

Availibility- This is not available on their site,so you have to head over to Flipkart,Jabong,Purplle and Nykaa.Do check out the pricing on these sites and choose the one which has lowest price including the shipping cost. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Currently,Jabong is offering the highest price. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

My thoughts- Since this facewash claims to be used for all skin types,I went ahead gladly.On my combination sensitive skin,this scored 9/10.

There was no irritation or redness.Also,it removed the excess oil from my face,but I felt it bit drying on my cheeks and chin.This maybe due to the dry weather going on right now.Then,I don’t think this will work during winters ย as it may cause dryness.So here,I think,this facewash will suit only the oily-skinned people.

I have to see whether summers will be in its favour or not for all skin types.I will continue using this during the summers as my T-zone gets super -oily .

After washing my face with this,I felt freshness and a squeaky clean face.It claims to remove makeup,which is not true at all.I tested this on Lakme absolute liquid liner and Maybelline vivid and smooth eyeliner .It required lot of effort actually.

Overall verdict-Dry skinned people can stay away from this.Otherwise,it is a good face wash to use.

Till the next post,cya,take care XOXO :-*

Nykaa & Jabong Haul

Heya ladies!

How are you all doing? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I hope you are having a great day,but if you are not,then go for binge shopping. ๐Ÿ˜› Shopping is a stress buster.

Whenever,a special day arrives,like the recent Women’s day,I get ready to splurge on amazing deals online.I am a hardcore feminist and I believe Women’s day should not be a one-day affair.Rather,every woman should live her life like it’s a Women’s day everyday. ๐Ÿ™‚

I stocked up on my essentials and also bought some new items to try.Among my essentials,I bought Episoft cleanser ( Check out it’s review here) and Aroma Magic china rose anti-dandruff shampoo.I have to review the shampoo as I am on it’s 2nd bottle.

The things I bought for trying are Maybelline electropop Fierce n Tangy(I know I am bit late ๐Ÿ˜ฆ ),Aroma treasures Aloe vera facewash,Aroma treasures Tea tree oil and 2 eyeshadow palettes from Nicka K New York.The last two are from Jabong.Jabong is giving 50% discounts so I got these for an amazing price.

I have got the herbal bug so I am trying every herbal brand out there. Infact,I am an eyeshadow freak also.I keep piling up eyeshadows,not knowing when to use them. ๐Ÿ˜€

I will do a detailed review on the above leaving out the lipbalm.Everyone has done it already. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

That’s all in my haul.Take care,byee :-* XOXO

Episoft cleansing lotion review

Hey all!

I have been keeping busy lately,so sorry if I didn’t post anything. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Today,I am reviewing a cleansing lotion which I have used since December 14,and recently bought its second bottle.So you can guess,this will be a positive review.

Skin type: Combination skin,sensitive,normal skin and acne-prone skin.(I experimented with this after seeing a girl with acne using this)

Availability: Easily in any drug store

Price & quantity: 180 INR for 125ml..pretty good

Smell: No such fragrance

Texture: Milky white liquid

Packaging: Comes in a white paper box.The plastic bottle itself is a flip-cap bottle.Suitable for travel also.

My thoughts: I used this during my flare-up and it was the perfect cleansing lotion for me.It didn’t sting at all,cleansed my face well and didn’t cause dryness.During the winters,it caused slight dryness on my combination skin,but I think for summers,this will be suitable also.

Since it didn’t cause further reaction on my skin,so sensitive skinned people can go for this.This is a cleansing lotion which leaves the skin clean,not control oiliness. So oily skinned people will not benefit from this.

It doesn’t lather at all.So those who are used to foamyย cleansers,will not like this.

I found this cleanser very gentle as this is good for the skin and also eyes. ๐Ÿ˜› So many times,this product has come into contact with my eyes,but it doesn’t harm it at all.No stinging or redness.

I wet my face,take a little amount of it,rub it in between my palms and use it on my face like I am massaging a moisturiser.After 1-2 Min,I wash my face.
