When skincare products are made with clean and pure ingredients, you can literally feel their purity on your skin. This is how my experience has been with the skincare products from Baniithanii, a homegrown skincare brand whose roots lie in the principles of Ayurveda. Each product is vegetarian and cruelty-free, is carefully formulated using natural ingredients and is devoid of any artificial fragrance or colours. The results truly speak for themselves, so without much ado, here is my review of the Baniithanii Bath and Body products.
If you like the scent of roses then you must purchase the Fab India Rose Geranium Face and Body Gel Scrub. This gel scrub literally smells divine and reminds me of Gulkand, which is a sweet preserve of rose petals used in some Indian desserts. I haven’t purchased a lot of skin care from Fab India but this is one product that definitely deserves a mention on the blog.
The scrub has the consistency of a soft gel with walnut granules embedded in it. These particles are gritty enough to remove dead skin from the face and body yet mild enough to be suitable for sensitive skin. A lot of “mild” scrubs in the market have disappointed me by their non-existent exfoliating action but this scrub is everything I expect from a gentle scrub. It also contains rose essence and some nourishing oils that leave the skin soft and supple after every use.
100ml of this product is priced at INR 390 on the Fabindia website. A little expensive, but you only need a tiny bit of the product each time and the luxurious feel this scrub provides makes it worth the price. The only thing that could make this scrub even better would be a tube instead of a jar for the packaging. Other than that, if you are on the hunt for a gentle but effective scrub then this one will definitely get the job done.
I hope that this review was useful. You can buy the FabIndia Rose Geranium Face and Body Gel Scrub here.

A body scrub that is quite gritty yet moisturizing is hard to come by. I found this gem when I was perusing the aisles of my local Body Shop store, on the hunt for a scrub that would eliminate my ingrown hair. The Body Shop Wild Argan Oil Rough Body Scrub is a dream come true for me. Unlike the gentle scrubs that have soft beads, this one has a strong exfoliating action owing to the rough particles embedded in the golden gel.
Despite being a gritty scrub, this product leaves your skin supple and hydrated, thanks to the goodness of Argan oil. In fact, you can even get away without moisturizing after using this scrub. The product provides rescue from dry, scaly skin and the post waxing disasters that we call ingrown hair.
My only complaint about this product is the price, which is INR 1095 for a 200ml tub. However, this jar did last me for ages and I will definitely repurchase.

Who doesn’t enjoy fun bath time products? They add an element of color to an otherwise mundane activity. If you are a firm believer in eye-catching packaging then Anatomicals is the right brand for you. This UK based company combines great skincare and bath products with quirky packaging that has a unique appeal. Today I will review The Buff Stuff Citrus Body Scrub from their range.
Usually, I am too lazy to use a body scrub because it adds yet another step to my shower routine, however, the fresh citrus scent of this scrub beckons me each day. The scrub comes in a bright pink and yellow tube with humorous quotes that will leave you giggling while the product works its magic on your skin. Furthermore, the actual color of the product is also a lovely grapefruit pink with tiny white scrub particles. The particles are gritty enough to help you get rid of dead skin and ingrown hair and daily usage will remove a tan uniformly to reveal soft and smooth skin.
I think that this body scrub is very effective, yet gentle enough for all skin types. As an added bonus, the formula is paraben free as well! What more could you ask for from a scrub that does not burn too big a hole in your pocket? You can pick up a 200ml tube for INR 650, which in my opinion is great value for money. So go ahead and give this amazing product a shot!
