They deal with natural ingredients, cruelty free infrastructure etc. Good Vibes is one such brand which is everywhere in full fledge with their amazing range of skincare stuffs. I have come across this brand through Purplle.com which is a website, dealing with makeup & skincare products. I think Good Vibes is one of their highly sold brand till now. I have tried many of their products out of curiosity and loved them to the core. My first pick was this Good Vibes Nourishing Face Cream with Vitamin E which I am going to review today.

Good Vibes Nourishing Face Cream with Vitamin E : Review
  • 50 gm costs Rs. 225/- (often on discount upto 15%)
  • Shelf Life is 2 years from the date of manufacturing.

Packaging & Texture

The packaging of all Good Vibes products are fuss free and simple. It comes in a plastic jar . There is a protective plastic layer between the cream and the outer lid which makes it spill-proof. You can find all the necessary details on the body of the jar. I wish the brand starts coming up with the glass jars in near future as they are less harmful than plastics and will look good on our vanity too.

The Vitamin E cream is of medium consistency ; neither too thick, nor too thin. It has a slight fruity smell but that does not last longer after application. The cream is pure white in color and applies smoothly onto your face. It absorbs quickly and doesn’t make your skin feel greasy. Oily skin might feel a little sweating afterwards but It’s absolutely perfect for your night time skincare routine.

Good Vibes Nourishing Face Cream with Vitamin E : Review

My thought on the product

As I have already entered in my 30s, I always search for a good skincare product which not only nourishes but also works on the ageing of my skin. I would say, this Good Vibes Vitamin E face cream is a decent choice . It makes my skin very smooth and I have noticed it makes my face so nourished after the application. It has different fruit extracts and also soya protein which is super cool. You can feel the plump feeling on your face after a few days only. It didn’t cause any irritation to my face. I always keep it in fridge and apply it on my face after cleansing, toning, and serum application. I really like the cool feeling on my face after the application and I feel it absorbs more quickly on my oily skin, if it’s bit cold.

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Scrub Foam : Review

Hello Beauties

Hope you are all doing great. Today, I am going to talk about a staple in my skincare routine which I have been using since past 18 months and still, cannot get over it. The product is from the well-known Korean brand ‘The Face Shop’.This brand launched on Nykaa quite some time ago & I decided to pick few stuffs then. In this post,I am talking about their Jeju Volcanic Lava Scrub Foam. The name itself is quite fascinating. Let’s see how it fares:

About The Product

One step closer to pure, clean skin! The Face Shop introduces a purifying pore skin care line that contains volcanic ash from Jeju Island and an urban defence complex to protect skin from pollution and make it clean and clear. This purifying scrub foam contains volcanic ash from Jeju Island that helps remove all impurities and dead skin cells giving you smooth, clearer complexion .

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Scrub Foam : Review

My Thoughts

There is absolutely nothing fancy in the packaging itself. It’s a simple & fuss-free tube packaging . Easy to use, easy to carry. Absolutely spill-proof! The texture of the scrub foam is a bit gritty as there are micro granules inside it which helps in the mild scrubbing & exfoliating. The smell of the scrub foam is very soothing. The granules are not harsh & melts very easilyWhen you rub onto your skin. You can literally feel that squeaky clean feelings after using it. I have oily skin & it keeps my skin oil-free for at least 2 hours after each use which is great in my opinion. I am really very fond of The Face Shop products and this one is my most favourite. It works on the open pores also.Currently, my husband is also using this one after his gym session & he is also mighty impressed.

As it’s a scrub foam, you should use it on alternative days . One tube will last you for a very long time, so it’s a good buy !

The Face Shop Jeju Volcanic Lava Scrub Foam : Review

Overall, a very worthy purchase and I am thinking of trying out some other products too from the Jeju Volcanic range of TFS.

Review of Vedantika Herbals Neem Tulsi Aloe Face Wash & Ubtan

This is a traditional Indian recipe to beautify our skin. It’s a gentle ubtan or body polisher formula which all Indian mothers use at their households. it is supposed to remove old skin & let new skin to flourish. This Ubtan comes in a plastic bottle as well with a cap screw on top. It is a finely milled pale yellow powder formula which you have to soak in milk and make a smooth paste. Then you have to apply it on your full body and leave it for a few minutes. Then rinse it with water to feel the smooth skin afterwards. First of all, it smells absolutely like Besan & Camphore. After the wash, the skin feels so supple & smooth. I have used several body scrubs before, but this feels amazing. You should definitely go for it!

Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

Hello Beauties

Those who are very much interested in trying out new & popular skincare products across the world ; St. Ives is not a stranger name to them. It is an universally acclaimed skincare brand which consists of Facial Scrubs, Moisturisers, Face Cleansing Sticks, Sheet Masks & what not ! These are everyone’s favourite and I am also a fan of this brand.

Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

Recently, I got a chance to receive & review their newly revamped version of St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub. These have been doing well in the market for quite some time now but recently, the brand changed their packaging & formula a little bit. This apricot scrub has also won the ‘Allure Readers’ Choice Award in the year 2016. St. Ives facial scrubs are the most talked about product in the town recently.

Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

What The Brand Claims

  • Made with 100% natural exfoliants
  • Deeply Exfoliates & removes impurities for glowing skin
  • Paraben Free
  • Dermatologically Tested
  • Non Comedogenic(doesn’t clog pores)
  • Oil Free

It consists 100% natural walnut shell powder to deeply exfoliate for clean, glowing skin.

Why We Love Apricots

The extracts from these sun-loving fruits are known to soften and smooth skin.

  • It is a deep exfoliator(Gentle & Moderate options from the brand are also available in the market)
  • Net Weight: 170 gm
  • Price: 399/-
Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

Packaging

There is nothing fancy about the packaging. It’s a typical tube with the flip top opening. You can find all the product details on the tube itself. Too simple yet effective.

Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

Texture

The texture is quite coarse for my liking. I know, facial scrubs do have that tiny granules which removes the dead skin & impurities but St. Ives apricot scrub has too much grainy granules in it which can be a concern for sensitive skins. It may cause some redness or irritation to the skin. The smell is quite refreshing though.

Review: St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub

My Personal Experience

I personally, like St. Ives as a brand. I have been using their products for so long now, even I am a fan of their Skin Collagen Cream. Also I have used their Oatmeal scrub & mask earlier. Now, coming to this apricot scrub, It is quite effective in removing all the impurities and gives a squeaky , clean face. The oil control is good too. But in a country like India, in summer, our skin become a little sensitive , so using this face scrub can be a little harsh on many. So, you have to be a little careful about that. It will work great as a body scrub, if you can understand what I mean ! I normally use it on my neck, elbow, hands as well. I found out that the Oatmeal scrub which I have used earlier had a gentle exfoliation factor, whereas, the apricot one has a deep exfoliation factor which results in some rough granules in it. You can find the level of exfoliation, marked on the back of the tube , i.e. Gentle, Moderate or Deep. Use twice a week.

Overall, St. Ives Fresh Skin Apricot Scrub is a decent buy . Using it once or twice a week can be a option in your skincare routine.

Let me know how you like it….

Now,coming to the moisturiser itself, it is a pale white liquid with a serum like consistency. The smell is really calming & soothing as it reminds me of fresh lotuses only.

It doesn’t feel like you have anything on your face. You feel the softness it provides & it actually works on itchy & irritated skin. In summer, my face becomes red & a little itchy sometimes,and after using the moisturiser, it actually calmed it down.

So, Overall, I really liked this product a lot. It is definitely a saviour this summer season when Kolkata is so hot & humid, it helps in keeping up with the hydration & moisturization of my skin.

Review: Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser

Hello Beauties

Hope you are all doing great. I have started concentrating more and more into a compact skincare regime. I have been in a search of a good foaming cleanser when I found out about Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser. Innisfree is Korea’s no. 1 skincare brand with natural ingredients. It is now available on Nykaa too. I went through some rave reviews about this cleanser and thought of trying it out.

  • Jeju Green Barley contains Cellulose that throughly removes impurities from skin.

Product Description

During summer, my face needs something extra which will be delicate yet balancing on my skin. That’s why I chose this one as it has natural ingredients. Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser comes in a huge plastic tube packaging which includes a pump dispenser at the top. It is quite convenient and travel-friendly. The pump does not leak and pumps the correct amount each time. you will only need 2 good pumps to cover your entire face. It appears as a white foaming bubble on your palm. The fragrance is quite mild and soothing. In my personal opinion, you should wash your face with lukewarm water afterwards for a better result.

Review: Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser

My Personal Experience

I have been throughly enjoying this face cleanse since last 2 months. I started using it at the end of Winter and still is continuing with it. It cleans my face without leaving any impurities. It is not drying at all on my oily skin but if you have very dry skin, you can feel it a bit drier. It keeps the oil secretion on my Tzone area at bay for 3-4 hours straight which I like the most.

Review: Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser

The price point may feel steep to some but believe me, the bottle runs for really, really long. Also pump dispenser means less wastage, isn’t it?

Review: Innisfree Green Barley Bubble Cleanser

Bubble cleanser is something new to Indian market but very addictive,indeed. I really liked using it as my primary face cleanser and probably will re-purchase it.
