Hi beautiful ladies!
This time I am late in posting. 😦 I am sorry.I had promised myself to post atleast 2 posts in a week.
Well!hoping that you are keeping up well,I would love to share my views on a product sent to me for review 15 days back.After using it diligently,I think I can finally say something on it.
I am sure you haven’t heard of this brand before,even in India.So,let me first acquaint you to this brand.Their products are inspired by traditional Indian home recipes for skincare, include natural artisan soaps,moisturizers, body creams, shampoos, conditioners etc.It started in August 2014 and their ingredients are directly coming from the kitchen.It started with a mother’s labour of love; a revelation. It began in 1991, when their Chief Crafter, Sangeeta, realized that her newborn was reacting to most available toiletries & cosmetics at the time.So,she plunged into the study of skincare. She took up aromatherapy, soap-making, lotion-crafting, and on a whim decided to dig into skincare remedies that her family had previously used. This unearthed a treasure trove of ancestral recipes gathered from her friends, family and community. Using these recipes, her research, and ingredients commonly found in the kitchen or home garden, Sangeeta was always experimenting with new formulae. They worked wonderfully for her child’s skin – so well in fact that the entire family hasn’t used commercial products in years. Over time, she started sampling her creations to friends and extended family. They were so well accepted that a dream to offer it to the market began germinating in her mind.
Here’s their site if you want to have a look or buy something. 🙂
I was sent a face cleanser meant for my skin as they had suggested it will work for me.It is named as Wipe out.I loved their tags,very quirky names they gave to their products. 🙂
Price and quantity: INR 243 for 30g,INR 405 for 50g and INR 810 for 100g.I was given the 30g product.I feel the 30 g jar will itself last you more than a month as the quantity required for the usage is very less. 🙂 Shipping charges are additional 120 bucks.
Availability: Right now,they sell only through their facebook page and website.Also,as far I came to know,they do ship internationally but for international orders,contact them on their email given on their site. 🙂
Ingredients:Every 10gm contains Oil blend of Almond Seed (Prunus amygdalus), Peanut Seed (Arachis hypogeal) & Vit E (64.67%), Emulsion of Honey (22.74%), Beeswax (6.34%), Potassium Sorbate (0.56%), Ess.Oil of Sandalwood Heartwood (Santalum album) (0.09%). I am allergic to peanuts and almonds and till now haven’t noticed any reaction,so the content is less for any visible reaction.
Packaging: It comes in a sturdy golden plastic jar.Since the product is thick,it neither sticks to the cap if inverted,nor does it leak.So a definite yay for travel.The jar has labelling of the brand,ingredient list,usage instructions and price.
Fragrance: Faint smell of sandalwood.
Texture: Thick waxy consistency
Usage:Take required amount and massage face, eyes and lips. Wipe with a damp cotton/cloth.
Shelf life: 4 months from date of packing.
Recommended for: Sensitive skin and makeup removal.
My views: When I first applied it,I didn’t see any redness or tingling feeling.Also,it easily removed my smudgeproof eyeliners in a ziffy. 🙂 So it stays true to its claims.
However,even after removing with cotton,there is a layer of the cleanser left on your skin which makes it feel oily/sticky.So if your skin is combination or oily,you may need to wash it off with your facewash.If you have dry skin,then a mild face wash is sufficient to remove the stickiness.
I had also used another method for this cleanser.I massaged the cleanser on my skin for a minute gently as its bit hard to glide on the skin.Then I washed it off with my face wash.Skipping the cotton part will retain more oils on my skin which acts as moisturizer.I do not feel the need to add moisturizer on my face after this if I use this method.
You can choose any method that suits you.I usually take the product as if I am applying face cream.Very little goes a long way.Do keep in mind that its more solid so it doesn’t spread well on the skin. 😦 Due to which ,you may tend to massage it more which is not good for skin. I follow the 5 dot rule on my face.
My skin is more soft and supple post its usage.Not a single trace of makeup can be seen on my face.Also my cotton pad comes off dirty whenever I used it,so it cleans well too.
My rating is 3.5/5 as a secondary face wash is needed to remove the traces and also because it is bit difficult to work with on the skin.Maybe they can make it more softer in consistency. 🙂 Overall you can use it as a makeup remover if the cleansing part appears cumbersome to you. 🙂
