AVA Spring Pond Collection: Face & Body Scrub: Oily Skin

Hello people,

I got this AVA Face & Body Scrub in my September Fab Bag. The Fab Bag crew always tries to carpool emerging brands into their journey so that the audience can be introduced to new launches in the market. AVA is a startup Natural Skincare Brand which focuses upon providing organic and high quality products. They claim to be the 1st brand in India which works on pure Ayurvedic formula using modern technology of stem cells and natural ingredients. They are currently associated with J W Marriott and Shangri-La. 

Benefits: AVA gentle gel scrub helps to exfoliate the dead cells, ingrowth, dirt, excess oils from the surface of the skin with finely ground apricot and walnut shells leaving the skin smooth and brighter with oriental notes of lemon grass and tea tree which helps to control sebum and mint along with citric oils help to clarify the skin.

Claims:
   ·    No Fragrance
   ·    Pharma Graded Colors
   ·    No SLS
   ·    Organic Preservatives

Key Ingredients: Purified water, glycerine, aloevera gel, licorice extract, mulberry extract, ashwagandha extract, mint oil, lemongrass oil, tea tree extract, apricot & walnut scrub, color, base q.s

Price: INR 300 for 80 grams of product.

My Skin Type: Before going into the review, I shall first brief out about my skin so that you can get the wider picture. I have an acne prone skin which is somewhere between combination to oily. It is highly active in summers, producing excessive sebum. But in winters, it gets dry, stretchy and slightly flaky! I have slight faded scars as well.

Packaging: AVA Face & Body Scrub comes in a plastic bottle with a golden shiny screw open lid. Also, there’s a plastic stopper placed as well so that the product does not spill.

Experience:
Since my face is never flawless and always gets one or two bumps here and there, I avoid facial scrubs for the fear of aggravating them. So whenever I receive scrubs, I employ them for my bodily purpose. But when I took this one along with my shower, I gave it a go because my mind was like “It’s cool, I can make it work out via gentle scrubbing motions”. The fragrance is citrusy and the ingredient list made me recollect that it’s that of the lemon grass. The texture of this scrub is thick and I love the fact that instead of a cream base, it has a gel base, which makes it appropriate for the oily skin type. The consistency is thick and the granules are so finely ground that it hardly feels harsh onto the face. It gives mild exfoliation and brightens up the face post scrubbing procedure. I also noticed that unlike the cream based scrub; this does not overtly moisturize the skin but removes excess oil and leaves the skin soft to touch. On application, it does give a slight cooling sensation due to mint.

Final Verdict: I like it so much that I am never gonna use it for body, but save it exclusively for my face! Till now, I’ve always ran away from scrubbing my face because whenever I did, it would trouble my pimples. This one is like the perfect scrub that suit my skin so perfectly well as if customized keeping my skin’s behaviour.

Rating: 4.9 out of 5

Until Next Time,

Take Care<3

MamaEarth: Shampoo + Conditioner Review | Happy Heads & No More Tangles

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨
We all love our tresses! In order to sustain a healthy crown of hair, we keep on hunting for homemade DIY recipes or a shampoo that resolves the prolonged hair fall problem. Is it merely me who has been seeing a lot of hair fall since a year or two? I’ve altered my shampoo to figure out what is the actual cause for the same and it appears as if the inherent genes and my eating pattern is what causes a lot of shedding of hair. Recently, I tried the Mamaearth’s shampoo and conditioner duo which I believe was the part of their Anti-Hair Fall kit which is priced at INR 999. The kit intrigued me a lot and I’m glad I got to try out two products from that kit so that I don’t end up spending a thousand bucks. If you’re wondering how these products fared for me, stay tuned and keep on reading!

Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask - Review

Hi Guys, Welcome back to the Glistening Lane ✨

Apparently, there are lots on skincare brands which are available internationally and I’m yet to try them out. Some of these brands, enclosed within my wish list include The Body Shop, The Faces Shop, Clinique, etc. Thankfully, Nykaa was running an offer on The Faces Shop skincare range wherein you could grab a full-sized freebie product. While I was surfing the catalogue, I encountered the “self-heating” mask which kept me intrigued enough to add it to my cart. I kid you not, there have been times when I’ve legit done window shopping online as well! 😃😄 I see trillion of things and later I’m like – “Do I really need this?”
And the mind always answers – “Of course not, girl!” 😂
A lot of the times, I force myself to hear the sensible talk of my mind. But sometimes, the heart takes over and it springs in joy to say “Woah! That’s too pristine to be denied”. This is exactly how I ended up purchasing Jeju Volcanic Lava Self-Heating Clay Mask
So…

Surprise is the greatest gift which life can grant us.
Do you like surprises? I bet, you can’t say no to that.
Surprises are one of those quickest means of breaking the monotonous patterns of our lives. When I come back home from work, finding a courier onto my bedside table is what pumps up my excitement level. And this is exactly what happened on the evening of 31st of July.

The Process of Product Selection: As expected, we have one of star products from the brand Sugar Cosmetics! 😍😍
Few days ago, I was sent a product selection email from the team of Fab Bag. Therein, a tota…
