Bon Organic Exfoliate Soap Review

Hello 

Knowing about my obsession for organic soaps?? I love using them soo much. Today I am reviewing an exfoliating soap which is from the house of Bon Organic. This is the first ever product I used from their exclusive and excellent product range, & I am already in love with it.
Do read in details how I felt about it..

About the brand:
At BON, we are inspired by the nature’s secrets towards longevity and healing properties riddled in its precious oils, fragrant flowers, gentle healing herbs, flavored spices and other valuable botanicals. We propel to deliver this organic experience of ‘true nature’ to you as we have recognized that these wonders of aromatherapy will render tranquility and good health to the body, mind, and soul.Our team strives to consistently create, offer, and convey an incomparable lifestyle through a range of body, bath, home, and accessorial products exclusively organic and handcrafted. Yes, this is not just a range of personal care products on the shelf, but a conscious way of living, an archaic way of life for everyone.

Product Claims:
BON’s Exfoliate soap is made of fine coarse materials that are added to provide the texture that will facilitate the removal of dirt and dead skin cells. The present Corn oil, Poppy seeds, Herbs, and Aloe Vera are the main exfoliates while the Lemongrass oil works on double duty as the demulcent to ensure the soap soothes and heals the skin. This soap contains extra ground herbs for a scrubby effect and is not scented or colored. 
Ingredients:
The soap is very carefully infused with certified ingredents namely Saponified Organic corn oil (zea mays), Organic Coconut oil (Cocosn Nucifera), Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis), Organic Neem oil (Melia Azadirachta),Olive oil (Olive (Olea Europaea), Demineralised water, Shea butter (Butyrospermum Parkii), Calendula oil [Calendula officinalis], Essential oil of chamomile [anthem isnobilis], malva [Malva Sylvestris], organic lemon (Citrus Medica Limonum), Organic Aloevera (Aloe Barbadensis), lemon peel [Citrus Medica Limonum], Orange Peel [Citrus sinensis], & Natural preservative salinatural TCLS – based on Turmeric Oil, Clove Bud Oil, Lemon Grass Oil and Sesame Oil.
You may find the label of certification on the soap that speaks of its authenticity.
Price: Rs.162 for each bar of 100 gm. Online Order Here.

Shelf Life: 2 yrs
Packing: 
The Bon Organic Exfoliate Soap is till date the best packaged soap bar I have ever come across. I can't stop admiring the eco-friendly packaging by the brand. The soap comes packed in multiple layers. The outer most layer is a handmade sheet in pink color on which all necessary information is printed which holds soap bar beautifully wrapped in a dried leaf and tied with a natural jute string. I felt so wow to see this and opened it curiously to see the soap bar. But then there is another layer of recycled paper in which the soap bar is wrapped.

My take on the product:
The soap is pearly white in color that shows brown spots on it which are actually exfoliating grains embedded in the soap. The soap is smooth on the surface and the grains do not feel before you start using it.
The soap size is quite easy to make a grip than those huge soap bars and I am more comfortable to glide it on the body because of this reason. During the initial usage, the coarse grains don't touch the skin much. The soap lathers quite rich n creamy. I gently rub the skin to rinse it off properly so that there is no sticky feel left behind.
In the subsequent usage of this soap, the grains started highlighting themselves on the surface and felt abrasive on skin without causing any rashes or feel scratchy. I didn't use loofah, but directly rubbed the soap on my skin very softly to let the coarse grains do their job nicely in contact with skin. I am super impressed with the results. The soap works wonder to remove the dead skin from harder skin as well including the joints like elbows, ankles etc.
The skin feels absolutely bright & polished after getting exfoliated. I have used the soap on entire body, but could not dare to scrub on face. The soap has mild fragrance which stays only for the moment. I am perfectly all right even if it doesn't last for hours. There is a rich content of organic oils used in its formulation so even my dry skin felt very smooth and moisturized post shower.

Pros:
Organic ingredients.
Coarse grains don't scratch the skin.
Mild fragrance of essential oils.
No artificial colors.
Gentle exfoliation performed.
Works amazing on hard skin.
Eco-friendly packaging
Gives details of ingredients.
Produces creamy lather.
Chemical free.
No Animal testing.
100% handmade.

Cons:
Availability may be an issue.
Slightly expensive. (all because of richness of its organic ingredients)

Overall Opinion:
Bon Organic Exfoliate Soap is by far the best exfoliation soap ever. It is a bliss to flaunt younger looking skin intensely exfoliated just by using a soap bar. Those looking for a luxurious option to own radiant skin must give it a try as it is packed with multiple nourishing oils like corn oil, coconut oil, castor oil, neem oil, olive oil, calendula oil and many more. I can simply conclude "it does what it claims" :)

Liftage Intensive Age Defying System By Ethicare Remedies

Hi

Here is my opinion on an age defying product that I have been using since last month. I have used few other similar products and tried Liftage Intensive Age Defying System by Ethicare Remedies expecting better results. Do read if I found it suitable for my concerns..

Product Claims:
Takes dual action against ageing. Anti wrinkle treatment that combines two of the latest generation of mimetic peptides. Effective for Aging, Wrinkels, Pariobital Hyper Pigmentation, Fine Lines etc
Ingredients:
Argireline,Seaweed extract, Liquorice extract,Vitamin A, Sodium Hyaluronate, Silicon Oil.
Price: Rs 259
Qty: 15 gm
Order here
Packaging:
The product comes is a soft squeeze tube which is packed in a cardboard carton. Both the carton and the tube have all the details printed on it. I appreciate printing complete details on outer carton as well so that a buyer can read carefully before final purchase.

My take on product:
I am writing this review after finishing the entire content in the tube. But let me tell you frankly, I researched about its ingredients prior the application to know what is special about Liftage's formulation. I got to know about a powerful marine ingredient 'Seaweed' which is an extraordinary wealth of mineral elements from the sea and provides protective outer surface to the skin. The peptides are known to boost collagen production in skin that helps to improve skin elasticity and reduces wrinkles. Liquorice extract imparts potent antibacterial & soothing properties and lessens the intensity of age spots. Vitamin A helps increase collagen production and cell turnover, for tighter, fresher looking skin. Argireline prevents the formation of wrinkles by inhibiting muscle movement.

The cream is white in color. The consistency is just the perfect one to easily spread on skin. There is mild fragrance in the cream which won't hurt anyone.
After a thorough research on the ingredients used, I had high hopes from the Liftage Intensive Age Defying System, but I had decided already to give it a time of almost 2 weeks to get noticeable results. I began using it once a day before going to the bed at night. Since my main concern to choose this product was to reduce the dark circles, I mostly used it as an under-eye treatment. But also spread it on the skin around my eyes many a times.  
The first thing that got cured after using Liftage was flaking and irritation which is my most troublesome skin concern. Prolonged usage of liftage brightened the skin, fighting back the usual dullness without triggering irreversible pigmentation. Few light patchy spots near eye area are completely gone. The dark circles are definitely lightened, though not vanished. But as we all know, nothing works overnight. I am keeping patience to buy yet another pack of Liftage and continue using it for finest outcome.
Pros:
Excellent ingredients.
Effective on dark spots and dark circles.
Best product for this price.
Soothing fragrance.
No side effects
Reasonably priced for its ingredients.

Cons:
availability may be an issue.

Conclusion:
With the right ingredients you want for your skin minus the exaggeration of existing problems. Liftage Intensive Age Defying System is an considerable, innovative skin repairing product that helps to maintain a radiant, youthful look by preventing appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Aster Luxury Jasmine Soap Review

Hello

Remember I shared my experience with one of the newly launched Bathing Bar from Aster Luxury in Strawberry here. I actually loved using the soap despite strawberry not my very fav fragrance. And then I picked another one from their range i.e. Jasmine variant. Do read to know whether it did what it claimed...

About Jasmine Bathing Bar:
Aster Luxury Jasmine soap bar is made with highest quality natural ingredients, essential oils and extracts. This soap bar gently cleanses the skin and maintains the softness of your glowing skin. Aromatic fragrance of this soap bar is excellent for settling your nerves and relieving stress. Aster luxury soaps do not contain any harsh chemicals and are 100% vegan. All our bathing soaps are good for all skin types. No Paraben. No Phthalates. No animal testing.

Usage:
Firmly hold the aster handmade bathing bar and run all over the wet body. This soap gives good lather that will clean your whole body. Apply lather all over body before showering off.

Ingredients:
Coconut Oil, Sorbitol, Castor Oil, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Cocoamido Propyl Betaine, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Jasmine Fragrance Oil

Price: Rs. 150 each 
Weight: 125 gm
Buy from Amazon, Flipkart.
Packaging: The soap comes double-sealed in a transparent film so you may see the lovely soap color from outside even before you open it. The packaging has label with their brand logo on the front and ingredient list, price details etc at the back of the soap.

The Jasmine soap is a soft translucent bar. You may notice your fingers at the back when you hold it in your hand. (though I could not click that way to show it). The soap bar is twin shaded from light to dark. Unlike the Strawberry soap (that I used earlier), the Jasmine bar doesn't have the brand logo imprinted on it.  
Now I can't stop myself praising for its scent. I am deeply in love with its heavenly fragrance. Its an absolutely treat to me towards rejuvenation. It lathers richer and gently cleanses the skin leaving behind lightly scented soft skin. But it melts slightly more, so ensure drying it out after shower. But the size of soap bar is big enough to last long.

Pros:
No Paraben and phthalates. 
Additive free.
No Animal Testing.
Gentle to skin.
Enthralling fragrance.
Reasonably priced.
Decent lather.
100% vegetarian
Simple packaging.

Cons:
not easily available offline. 

Conclusion.:
Aster Luxury Jasmine Soap can be a suitable addition to your aromatherapy ritual like mine as Jasmine oil is said to be enriched with calming and anti-depressing properties. Its regular usage increases elasticity of skin. The blend of jasmine oil with other oils is capable of stimulating incredible skin benefits.

Cold Fever Relief from 'Mitti Se'

Today's post is more likely to be useful for parents having children of 1+ yrs of age. These little kids catch cold so easily and frequently that most of the times parents feel helpless what caused them this health problem. Because it is quite common that the cough n cold lead to fever and result in multiple visits to doctor's clinic. And the more annoying situation which I usually face with my child is to convince him to take medicine (if its a tablet) that he finds really difficult to swallow due to resultant sore throat and spits it out. To avoid this, most of the times I follow some home remedies by mixing some herbs, spice etc to cure cough, mild fever.

I know there are many such ayurvedic preparations available in market which claim to be natural, and assure of immediate relief. In the quest of finding a beneficial remedy, I found Cold Fever Relief from 'Mitti Se' which I have been taking to cure my cold right now and found it quite effective. So thought of writing about it..

Product Claims: Cures cold, cough and fever, removes congestion. Removes accumulated phlegm and toxins from lungs and body. Very effective in building immunity.
Ingredients:
Peepli, Tulsi, Black Pepper, Mace, Nutmeg, Green Cardamom, Black Cardamom, Cloves, Cinnamon, Ginger.
Price: Rs. 210 for 25gm
Shelf Life: 2 yrs.
How much to consume?:
For an adult, 1 tsp of the powder mixed with 2 tsp of pure honey is advised. This quantity makes 4-5 doses that should be eaten/licked spread over a day. Don't drink water afterwards. The complete relief can be expected with 2-5 days depending on how severe the problem is.

The Cold Fever Relief powder is considered safe for children above 1 year. But the dosage mentioned above should be reduced to half the Adult dosage for a child upto the age of 12 yrs.
My take on the product:
The product is packed in handy plastic bottle that is transparent. The fine details are all given on its label as the brand ensures transparency in sharing the constituents of all products. And I admire it completely.
The moment I unscrewed the top cap, I could sniff a strong mixed aroma of cardamom and cinnamon. The powder is deep brown and finely milled. I may notice minute fiber in it that we usually get our of grinding dry spices.
The powder mixed with honey gives a flavour identical to Chyawanprash that I totally loved. No yucky aftertaste will let you reject this remedy. After 4 to 5 dosages per day taken for 2 consecutive days, the scratchy sore throat felt nearly normal. Because clove, pepper and cardamom are said to cure throat related disorders very easily. And the appetite is also revived which I expect has happened due to cardamom powder again. The only concern now that is the watery nose that won't take much time to fled away.

Due to the weather change, other family members have also started little dosage of this powder as it not only cures the cold n fever, but also builds immunity. 

Pros:
Completely chemical free.
Enriched with beneficial herbs and spices. 
Easy to consume.
Tastes good.
Prevents and cures cough n cold quite effectively.
Little Quantity used per dosage.
No side effects.
Smells absolutely herbal.

Cons:
Nothing actually.

Total Oral Care from Mitti Se

Dental problems exist in every household ranging from gum disease, tooth decay, cavity etc and affecting people of all age groups. Even at my house, there are strict instructions to brush teeth twice every day. My hubby takes pleasure to brush his teeth more than twice which I think is not required for me. Then my little boy who is getting new teeth after shedding his milk teeth is also extra careful for his oral care. I somehow cannot be loyal to a specific dental cream bcz after some time I feel its not effective and so keep trying different ones. I guess many of you can co-relate with my story..

Today I am sharing my experience with 'Total Oral Care' tooth and gum powder from the product line of Mitti Se that is made of nature based ingredients.
Since I already talked about the brand in my previous post here, I will directly proceed with the review.

Product Claims:
Strengthens and tightens gums, stops bleeding, fights bad breath, treats sensitive teeth, removes stains and whitens teeth. Prevents plaque and tartar formation, helps in tooth-aches.
Ingredients: Neem leaves, Cloves, Turmeric, Babool, Jamun, Chirchita, Sonthh. Alum, Salt, Karanj, Guava and Banyan.
Price: Rs 125 fro 35 gm
Shelf Life: 5 yrs.
My take on the product:
I know tooth powders are very uncommon these days because we all want to squeeze a dental cream on our tooth brush and quickly perform the daily oral care regimen. But what I always believed is when we can spend hours beautifying our face and body, then why not a few minutes on our teeth. Moreover, there are some unhealthy ingredients in our toothpastes whose effects can cause your various oral diseases. With this thought, I welcomed Total Oral Care to my life :)

Total Oral Care is a light greenish powder (which turns darker when get wet) packed in a traditional white bottle with screw cap and a foil lining inside. The details regarding its ingredients is printed on the label.
Now talking about its usage, I prefer to sprinkle some of the powder on my moist toothbrush over the tooth paste and brush my teeth in the night before going to bed coz brushing is necessary to remove any food particles hidden between teeth. Now adding this tooth powder does a good job of leaving my mouth feeling clean.
My morning time ritual includes massaging it gently onto gums and teeth with fingers only, leave it on for few minutes and then rinse. Until I had started using this dental powder, my routine included a gum massage with salt and turmeric every morning. But now that practice has been replaced with use of total oral care because it not only contains salt and turmeric, but is enriched with additional benefits obtained from herbs and other natural healing agents provided by mother nature like neem leaves, jamun etc. On massaging, the powder doesn't foam at all and I wanted it not to, so its a positive aspect for me. My teeth feel polished and gums feel strong.
I'm most happy about the fact that my son, who needs to be reminded every morning to brush his teeth, is now himself asking to use this 'manjan' (in his words) ;)
It gives a weird aftertaste after initial use like most tooth powders do, but I eventually got used to it. It has greatly contributed to soothe the aching tooth and sore gum tissue at times. Me and my family members are quite liking the product.
I suggest you be careful not to moisten the powder in the bottle and keep the bottle tightly shut so that the powder doesn't get hardened.

P.S. The Total Oral Care powder is recommended safe for children above 5 years.

Pros:
Lightweight packaging.
Herbal Ingredients
Thoroughly cleanses teeth.
Strengthens gums.
Purifies the breath.

Cons:
Not easily available at stores. (but can be directly ordered from the http://www.mittise.com/ and its an era of online shopping, you see)

Total Oral Care is a result of modern techniques combined with vintage knowledge of herbs and spices that works wonder on your teeth and results in a beautiful smile :)

Wild Essence Face Pack from Mitti Se

Hey Friends

I have been talking about herbal, vegan products for many months. Initially I thought I know most of the names in the field. But frankly, I get to know about one of the other name every now n then and I feel pleasantly surprised to witness the awareness on the issue of skipping use of toxic products from our lives.
Today I am introducing you to "Mitti Se", a new name in the world of natural body care which actually attracted me first with its simple name that resonated purity :)

About the Brand: 
Mitti Se is a name offering pure & natural body care and cleaning products that are free from Toxic chemicals Mitti Se means 'From the Earth'. Their goal is to make our homes, our lifestyles and Earth safer. They provide affordable alternatives to reduce dependence on harmful & unsustainable chemicals.

Names behind the Brand:
The venture is handled a team of specialists in the field namely Tuba (A Bio-Technology professional), Arun (practitioner in Ayurvedic medicines), Fakhra (Personality Development trainer passionate for traditional healthcare practices), Sadhan (a specialist in traditional and modern systems of healing), Faiz (Oils and Chemical technology professional), Rafi (Computer Engg dealing with marketing, technical business aspects)

About the Product:
Fights acne with regular use, removes suntan, rejuvenates cells and imparts a glow. Mix 1 tsp in raw milk (dry skin) or rose water or plain water (normal/oily skin). Apply on wet face & neck and massage gently. Rinse with water without using soap. Can be used daily as an instant face wash or as a mask twice a week where paste can be applied, and left on till dry.
Ingredients: Lata Gulab, Desi Gulab, Java Plant, Jata Maasi, Sugandhbala.

Price: Rs 190 for 40g.
Availability: The 'Mitti Se' products can be ordered via online bank transfer from the mittise.com site directly or can be purchased from many online portals like Flipkart | GreenNGood | ShopHealthy | EcoTokri | Snapdeal | Organic Shop | Natural Mantra | I Am Green | EcoMartIndia | Naturally Yours | Greenmoksh | Ecochoice | Sattviko |

Packaging:
The Wild Essence face pack comes in a jar packing with a screw cap on the top. There is an inner disc as well. The lid has a sticker with brand and product names on it. And the label around the packaging gives complete detail about its ingredients, price. shelf life etc.

My Experience:
The face pack is not in cream or gel form as you might be expecting, but it is in powdered form. This might be because the brand has recommended to apply it on all skin types with little variation in application method. The Wild Essence face pack can be applied mixed with Rose Water for by normal skin to oily skin. But the people who have dry skin like me are advised to apply the face pack mixed with raw unboiled milk. So I liked that this face pack will be suitable for all skin types. 

It is finely milled powder of light beige brown color. During my first application, I mixed it in raw milk to make a paste of moderate consistency and scrubbed gently it on my face because it can be used as a mild scrub. 
My basic purpose of choosing this face pack has been tan removal. So I continued using it as a scrub for few days on my face that is slightly affected from suntan. I always extend the scrubbing to the neck area also to clear the dirt and grime that rests on uncovered skin.  The skin does not get hurt as there is no harsh granules in it. 
Next I tried using it as a thicker paste to be applied as pack. It takes almost ten mins to get dried. I felt no stretching or irritation of skin while it was on my skin. I felt happy that the pack gives soft n clean feel to the skin. Another plus can be for those who dont like stronger scents. This face pack has soothing fragrance that doesn't stay for long. After a regular use of more than ten days, I may notice lightening of tan to some extent which I expect to totally vanish in another few days.
Since I used the pack with milk, it didn't make the skin drier and I can see a nice glow and improved complexion of my face post application. So my overall experience is a good one. 

Pros
Soothing scent.
Sturdy packaging.
Suitable to all skin types.
Gives no stretchy feel to skin.
Works on suntan effectively.
Wide online availability.

Cons:
Slightly expensive for its quantity.

I liked the effect of Wild Essence Face Pack on my dry skin that doesn't strip off natural oil from my skin when used with milk. I have no acne problem, so cannot say how effective will that be on acne prone skin. But those who care for their delicate skin and want to shift from chemical based products to nature based, this product is worth trying!!

Summer Swagger For My Dandy Dad On Father's Day

Parenthood is a relationship by choice when a couple makes a commitment to each other to bring a new life in their world and get ready to share a responsibility.. Most people would think the female partner to be more attached to the new born and bearing more sense of an awesome responsibility that is greater than any ever experienced. But that may not be the reality in many cases..My dad, when got tied in this unbreakable bond, happily adjusted his schedule and sacrificed his personal space to respect this newly experienced relationship with his baby :)

But mind you, I am here talking about the man who cared for how he presents himself to the world. Having a baby could never push dressing sharp to the back burner for him ;) I grew up noticing him put effort to dress sharp with lot of patience and accept no variation in his style statement. But daddies don't always meet daughter's standards. I remember myself frown or look dubious until he sweetly asked what was wrong and I would answer "Why don’t you wear the darker color shirt, instead? Gray makes you look older.” The humble man would never show disapproval or disgust to his darling daughter and gladly come back in new avatar with appropriate expressions. That feeling of being taken seriously always thrilled me and filled my heart with sheer pride :)
A Law Practitioner by profession, my dad always loves to dress respectfully even on holidays and leaves no room to debate to be seen in unruly looks. Thank God! Father's Day falls on a Sunday and I won't be seeing him in the professional dress code of the Bar Association the whole day :P So I have customized my dad's summer swagger exclusively for his special day i.e Father's Day..

Casual yet suave, that's how the man with power dresses himself for the weekend...I wish to give his Sunday casuals a complete makeover with this La Seven Peach Linen Slim Fit Casual Shirt to leave the right impression. And of course, it is the time to get rid of those formal trousers he struggles with the whole week and tuck his comfy shirt in a pair of lightweight Nautica Coffee Chinos, no matter where we go to celebrate the occasion around town. A pair of tan loafers by Hitz is a nice way to finish the ensemble. Nope! I want to add up some essential accessories also to elevate his subtle style quotient. He cannot refuse accentuating himself with a Chronograph Watch from Citizen and soothing sunnies from Michael Kors.

There is no denying to the fact that dressing my quintessential #DandyDad up takes real extra effort, but the confidence and competence he displays in presenting himself matter to me a lot, and I always rely on www.jabong.com that is typical one-stop solution to all our dressing and grooming needs. 
I am excited to gift my dad what my heart desires. Have you shopped for your doting dad? If not, quickly explore www.jabong.com or download their mobile app to enjoy upto 80% off till midnight before it gets too late...because it feels more special to gift those who never ask for :)

Happy Fathers' day to all adorable dads!!

Mint Peach Fruit Cocktail

Fresh pulpy peaches are so deliciously juicy to eat in summers. Peaches are low in calories and contain no saturated fats, so the people on diet can even enjoy them on their fruit platter. Because they are packed with numerous health promoting antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins. Peaches can be great addition to a variety of fruit salads, pies, or squashes. And I have used them today in a fruit cocktail with a dash of fresh mint.
Ingredients:
  • 5-6 Ripe Peaches 
  • Juice of 1 Lemon
  • Powdered Sugar - (as per taste)
  • Black Pepper – as per taste 
  • ½ tsp -Black Salt 
  • ½ tsp - Roasted n Powdered Cumin Seeds (Jeera)
  • 4-5 sprigs - Fresh Mint 
  • Water 
Method:
  • Boil the fresh ripe peaches in one glass water and let it cool. 
  • Peel its skin off which will easily come out after boiling. 
  • Mash the boiled peaches with your hand to separate the hard seed. 
  • Now grind its pulp in the grinder with mint leaves added into it. 
  • Add more water to dilute the consistency as per your liking. 
  • Mix lemon juice, powdered sugar, black salt, pepper n powdered jeera and blend nicely. 
  • Serve chilled garnished with mint and crushed ice.
Did you like the freshness of this fruit cocktail?? Do share your views :)
