Ida Naturals Calendula infused mango butter soap review

Heya!

How is your week treating you?

Well! mine is going tiring. For the past 2 days,I am returning home at 9 PM. 😦 But I am trying to keep my word,blog comes first when I come back from office.

This is my first review of a soap,because firstly,it takes a lot of time to finish a soap to try the next and secondly,I am scared to use any other soap apart from my trusted Avene emollient bodywash gel.

About the brand: Ida Naturals was conceptualized in Bangalore (India), as an effort to revive the past and create an awesome, natural and environment-friendly line of bath and body creations. We create gentle, nourishing and effective products applying ancient Indian skin-care methods & herbal remedies using finest natural ingredients. Ida Natural’s creations are completely handcrafted & bio-degradable ensuring unsurpassed quality with no waste. We love creating and using our products and hope you love them too.

Availibility: You can buy it from their facebook page- https://www.facebook.com/IdaNaturals/

They have lot of products so you can choose from there or get it customized like I did.They also ship international.

Ingredients: Saponified mango butter,clendula infused sunflower oil,coconut oil and castor oil.These are the main ingredients.

All the ingredients are moisturizing in their action and specifically,calendula is good for sensitive skin/eczema-prone skin.

Packaging

What the brand claims: This conditioning, rich, nourishing goodness is extra-mild and works great even on sensitive skin.The conditioning properties of Mango Butter and healing attributes of Calendula makes this soap a truly must-have in the household.

Works great on :

❖ Baby skin ❖ Mothers-to be skin ❖ Extreme Sensitive Skin ❖ Toddlers / kids with sensitive skin

Unscented soaps eliminate the chances of skin irritation / reaction of sensitive skin to essential oils

Packaging

Price & quantity : Rs. 240/- to Rs. 250/- ( based on weights ).All shipping modes including COD are available. I believe this is apt and cheap.My soap is about to get finished and it lasted me for over a month.It is best to order in combination with other products due to shipping fee applicable.

Fragrance: None

Packaging: Comes in a simple plastic wrapper with the soap name and its information.

Texture: Isn’t that foamy but glides smoothly on the skin.

My thoughts: This soap actually works!It doesn’t dryout your skin and nourishes it.It is moisturizing in nature but if you have extremely dry flaky skin,you may not find it that useful.

Homemade soaps tend to weep but this didn’t even during Delhi humidity.Another plus point!

It doesn’t melt easily.I have tried soaps from notable brands,which tend to melt easily,but this baby didn’t.

It cleans well even though it has moderate foam.

I have sensitive skin and this didn’t even burn or cause irritation.So that’s my favourite point of choosing this soap.

However,if you have cuts or bruises,it will sting you.

This soap definitely has pros overall,so you can give it a try.This soap is organic,handmade and suited to normal,sensiitve-dry skin.What else do you need! 😉

Amara organix hand cream review

Hi Dolls!

I am back with another review of a chemical-free product by a brand Amara organix. Firstly,I would bring to your notice that this brand understands your needs and customises the products for you.In my case,before sending me the samples,they had asked about what all ingredients pose a problem to me.They have sent 2 soaps as well in their basic gift wrapping which I will post about later. 🙂

About the brand: Amara handcrafted bath & beauty products are formulated to create a positive and enriching experience to an individual’s mind,body and soul. We at Amara use the abundant body of knowledge left behind by our ancients in Ayurveda,Aromatherapy, Ancient Chinese texts and our very own backyard recipes to present safe,gentle and natural beauty solutions.

In the quest for beauty that is safe and natural, we at Amara Organix strive to deliver natural and handmade skincare essentials. We procure our ingredients from the most genuine sources available and use only the purest steam distilled essential oils, cold pressed Virgin nourishing oils, organically farmed honey,exotic oils like Argan ,Maracuja oils and herbs and exfoliates.

To know about them more and their product list,head over here.

Availability: Products can be ordered via whatsapp (+91 8056592923) , Facebook  messenger and mail (Info@amaraorganix.com). They do ship worldwide but it will be costly due to shipping charge.

Price and quantity: ₹350/- for 100 gms. Shipping charge additional ₹50/- within chennai and if out of station – mostly it is ₹70 to ₹80. It is best to order several items at a time.I find the price reasonable for an organic product and the quantity is apt,considering it will last you easily for 2-3 months depending on how severe your hands are dry. Payment to be made via NEFT transfer and Bank Deposit.COD not available.Bank details will be shared when your order is confirmed.

Ingredients: Shea butter ,Aloe Vera extract, Coconut oil, Argan oil ,Tamanu oil ,Frankincense essential oil  and Lavender essential oil

Packaging: Comes in a simple plastic transparent tub with screwed lid.The tub had a nature-like design all over but it faded away while using it. It only has the product name on it.On enquiring I got to know,its just a sample packaging,so the correct name will be mentioned for sure. :-D.The packaging can be improved as in mentioning of ingredient list,price and expiry. Nonetheless,Mehar,the owner of this brand is very responsive to your queries. They also do customised gift wrapping for party favours/wedding favours/birthday return gifts/event takeaways for corporates etc. Colour/design/theme and budget – everything is customisable and they also work within budgets.

Name will be changed! 😀

Fragrance and texture: It has a very lavender like smell which is refereshing.Not too overpowering.It has a very light texture and the cream looks offwhite in color.Easily blends into the skin.

My thoughts: I like my hand creams hydrating but non-greasy.Does this serve the purpose?

Yes!It gets absorbed readily and is not at all greasy. Makes your hands soft for 4-5 hours for moderate dry hands.You need to reapply it though after washing hands.

The tub is sturdy so no issues of spillage.However,if you are travelling and open the tub,the product may stick to the lid and fall.

Didn’t cause any trouble to my eczema prone skin as well.Infact all the ingredients used are good for soothing the eczema skin.

The consistency is such that,you can use it as a body moisturiser also or dry areas of your face.

Overall verdict: Definitely a good purchase.
