If you are an avid stalker of celebrity skincare secrets then you must have heard of the benefits of Rosehip Seed Oil by now. This multi-tasking skincare ingredient is what you need in your life if you are on the wrong side of 25 and your skin is beginning to age. To find out what the hype over this oil was all about, I recently picked up the Ryaal Rosehip Seed Oil and here is how this product fared for me.
This 100% pure rosehip seed essential oil comes in the classic Ryaal packaging – a blue bottle with a dropper. The product itself is a golden oil with a nutty fragrance that is not too thick and sinks into the skin pretty quickly. It does leave behind a slightly oily cast on the skin but nothing too stark – you can pair it with a mattifying day cream or foundation during the day and use it as a part of your moisturising routine at night without looking like a grease ball (unless you have extremely oily skin to begin with).
Coming to the properties of the product, rosehip seed oil indeed does it all! It is rich in fatty acids, Vitamin A and Vitamin C and acts as a moisturiser as well as a toner. I have been using this oil as a part of my moisturising routine (post toning) and have noticed its exfoliating properties already. It has a noticeable peeling action and I could see that my dead skin was flaking off faster than usual while my pimples seemed to dry up more quickly. My skin also looked smoother than usual, which could be due to the fact that rosehip seed oil diminishes pores and plumps up the skin to prevent the appearance of wrinkles. I know that it sounds too good to be true, but if you religiously incorporate this facial oil in your skincare routine then I am sure that you will observe such positive results too.
Overall, I do not have anything negative to say about this product. It is quite affordable at INR 289 for a 15ml bottle that will last you for months if used in the right quantity. My skin has been behaving really well since I started using this oil and it is perhaps the most enjoyable part of my skincare routine at the moment. If you have been suffering from dry or dull skin and are looking for a multi-tasking solution then you must try out this gem of a product!
So I decided that I needed some glow on my face and went ahead and purchased the Dr. Sheth’s Basic Brightening Vitamin Glotion. This face and body lotion is a fine concoction of Vitamin A, Vitamin E, Vitamin C, and grapefruit and mulberry extracts that brighten, repair and hydrate the skin. Basically, it contains everything you need to get that healthy winter glow and to keep the dryness at bay.
This product is quite unique from other face lotions because while it has the consistency and texture of a lotion, it provides the finish of an oil-based serum on the face. It is light-weight and fast absorbing like a lotion but extremely hydrating and nourishing like a facial oil. And yes, it does provide an instant glow to the face post application.
Although it sinks into the skin really quickly, the oily-skinned ladies need to be a little cautious with the amount they use, because it can give the face a greasy appearance if you use too much. I will recommend one pump for those with oily skin and two for those with extremely dry skin, for the entire face and neck. Also, this lotion is more suitable for the night time so that it gets ample time to work its magic and also because it can cause makeup to slide around if used in the day.
Overall, I like this product because it does what it claims to do and is a no-nonsense lotion in that aspect. It provides an instant glow, brightens the skin with regular usage, and definitely moisturises it really well. Also, with so many awesome ingredients in one bottle, you can’t really go wrong with this glotion. The price of INR 800 for a 50ml bottle, plus the shipping charges of INR 200 does make this product a tad expensive and I sincerely hope that the brand finds some way to reduce the shipping costs but other than that I do not have anything to complain about regarding this product. So if you are someone who is attracted to skin-loving vitamins like a magpie is to gold then you must get your hands on this gem.
Reviewing a skincare product can be hard. You have to make sure that you do not make any other changes to your skincare routine while reviewing the product in question but there are still factors that could come into play, such as the weather, hormones, and the food you eat. At times I have to squint my eyes and stare hard at the mirror to figure out whether a particular cream or serum has made any difference to my skin but with the product I am going to talk about today, the improvement to the texture of my skin was so drastic that no magnifying lens was required for the review 😛 This wonderful product is the Tvakh 5% Vitamin C Glow Booster Exfoliating Water.
This product is essentially a toner that you need to use after washing your face, before going in with a moisturiser. I have been using it for around 10 days as a part of my evening skincare routine and am already thoroughly impressed with the product. I will definitely update this blog post if my thoughts change after a month or so but as of now, I feel that this product has lightened my spots and given a healthy glow to my skin that is clearly visible even from a distance. This efficacy of the product is due to the impressive list of ingredients, which include a generous dose of Vitamin C, a miracle skincare ingredient that is supposed to add a glow, diminish fine lines, and reduce any dullness. The product also contains Glycolic Acid, which is known to be an excellent exfoliator for acne-prone skin, along with a bunch of other superfoods for the skin as mentioned in the picture below. These days a lot of products claim to have these ingredients but it all boils down to having them in the right concentration, which the team at Tvakh seems to have nailed.
This toner is almost transparent with a hint of orange and smells citrusy with chemical undertones. It does tingle a little during the first few uses but is not harsh at all on the face once the skin gets used to it. It has not only helped with lightening my spots and brightening my skin but I have also noticed my dead skin peeling off faster than usual, making the product live up to its claim of being an exfoliating water. I would say that every skin type will benefit from using the product, provided you do not have extremely sensitive or dry skin. It is particularly suitable for acne and blemish-prone skin because it also helps with shrinking the pimples faster.
Overall, I am completely satisfied with the product, other than the packaging that could be improved with a better dispensing mechanism. A 100ml bottle of the toner is priced at INR 525, which is a fair deal considering the quantity you get and the quality of the product. So if you are in the market for a toner that also exfoliates and brightens the skin then the Tvakh Vitamin C Glow Booster Exfoliating Water is my recommendation for you.
Whenever I have some exciting event to go to, life always throws a curve ball in the form of nasty pimples. The Lotus Herbals Tea Tree Clear Face Pack is my best friend when it comes to shrinking these pimples within a few minutes. It is a clay based mask nourished with the goodness of tea tree oil and other herbs that help to combat acne and provide blemish-free skin.
The pack instructs to apply the product to clean skin and allow to dry completely for around 20 minutes and then rinse off. I like that the product does not stretch out the skin or make it excessively dry. It absorbs excess oil and leaves the skin fresh and glowing. I really love how it provides instant brightness to the skin along with working on acne.
A 60 gm tube of this face pack is reasonably priced at INR 165. Lotus Herbals is a brand that has always impressed me with the quality of its products and this one is no exception.
