We are all well aware of the benefits of turmeric as a skincare ingredient, but have you ever heard of turmeric in a lip balm? I definitely hadn’t, until I came across the Seer Secrets Watermelon Coconut and Turmeric Lip Saviour. Seer Secrets has always brought out interesting products with unique and effective ingredients and this lip balm is no exception. Read on to find out how it works at treating dry and chapped lips.
The Seer Secrets Lip Saviour comes in a cute packaging – a jar with a screw-on lid which is very travel-friendly. The formula itself looks waxy in the jar but melts when rubbed between the fingers, leaving behind a beautiful oily consistency. It literally glides on the lips, gets absorbed within seconds, and does not look crusty or cakey. It provides a golden sheen to the lips and also has some tiny granules that provide gentle exfoliation during application. These granules may stand out a little on the lips, so you may want to pick them out if using the lip balm during the day.
The formula contains many nourishing ingredients such as coconut essential oil, watermelon extract, vitamin E and Cocoa butter, and therefore provides intense hydration to the lips that lasts for several hours. Of course, it contains turmeric too, which protects the lips and prevents chapping and irritation. The formula contains SPF12 as well and will therefore provide some protection to the lips from sunlight too. I also love the fruity scent of the lip balm that lingers on for an hour or so post application.
Overall, I love this lip balm because it is essentially like a lip oil available in solid form that literally melts on the lips. It provides intense hydration and protection and can really help with restoring the softness of severely chapped lips. Priced at INR 315 for a jar that will last you several months, this is a product that you must try out!
The crazy bath lady strikes again! But what do I do – summer is here and I get through soaps and shower gels like nobody’s business. Also, Seer Secrets was kind enough to send me their Smoky Rose Geranium Hydrating Soy Milk Enzyme Body Cleanser and it was too good not to blog about, so here we go!
First of all, this body wash smells of roses, which is one of my favourite scents in the world. Secondly, it is enriched with soy protein that nourishes and hydrates the skin, so even if you are someone who likes to hop into the shower multiple times in a day during summer, your skin will still not feel dry or flaky. Another USP of this product is that it claims to fight against body acne, and I have indeed seen an improvement in the condition of the acne on my back and shoulders ever since I started using this product. Also, the bottle with a pump provides a hassle-free experience for those who want to be in and out of the shower in a jiffy.
To be honest, every product from Seer Secrets that I have tried till date has been of excellent quality and worth recommending. They put a lot of thought into their ingredients and their bath range, including this product, is no exception. Look at the ingredient list in the picture if you still have doubts. While the price of INR 594 for a 250ml bottle may seem a little up there, this product will last you a really long time because it lathers beautifully. So do take my word for it and try it out yourself, your skin will thank you for it!
The skincare brands are really upping their soap game these days and the Seer Secrets Quantum Quattro Gemstone Bath Bar is a prime example of this. This stunning gemstone green soap bar resembles a rock straight out of a Star Wars movie and can be the centre of attraction in any bathroom. Not only does this block of soap act as a talking point, it is also a great soap that has improved the quality of my much-neglected “body skin” within a few weeks. Read on find out more about this spectacular bath bar.
Priced at INR 342 for 161 gms of the product, this soap bar will last you a really long time because it is not like those soft handmade soaps that melt away really quickly. Also, it has the refreshing scent of lemons, or rather lemon candy, that will keep your bathroom smelling amazing all day long and your skin will also emanate the fragrance for a good couple of hours. The soap contains Bergamot and orange essential oil, which help to fight skin infection and make the skin healthier and smoother. It also contains natural minerals in the form of crushed gemstone powder, which add an element of luxury to the bath and offer a gentle cleansing action. I love the fact that this soap bar is made with all natural ingredients and does not contain any parabens, alcohols or dyes. It indeed provides gentle cleansing with its rich lather, and leaves the skin looking more youthful and supple. The skin of my body usually becomes dry and flaky after a bath if I don’t use a body lotion, but when I use this soap, I can even skip the moisturizer and my skin still doesn’t look dehydrated.
Overall, I am super happy with the glow that this soap has brought to my skin. I will definitely recommend it to all those who prefer using a soap bar instead of a shower gel. It is especially great for summers because of its zesty scent and refreshing feel. So do try out this soap and add some citrusy vibes to your bath!
A few years back, I was going through a bad phase healthwise and this horrible cough and stuffy feeling in the nose would never go away. After multiple visits to the doctor, it was confirmed that I had some kind of an allergy to the spores in the air. The only thing that helped with the discomfort and the never-ceasing cold was vitamin C. Ever since then, I am a huge fan of anything that is a natural source of Vitamin C, which is why when Seer Secrets sent me their Sabdariffa Tisane Herbal Tea, a floral source of Vitamin C, I jumped with joy. Read on to find out more about this delightful product.
The tea is basically the pure and dried extracts of the Sabdariffa Hibiscus flower, which is a powerhouse of Vitamin C. It helps provide comfort from allergies, asthma, indigestion, nausea, and is also supposed to lower the blood pressure. To prepare the tea, you are supposed to drop one flower into a mug, pour some hot water and let it brew for a few minutes before consuming. Within a few minutes, the tea turns the water a beautiful shade of reddish brown and begins to release a sour scent. Tastewise too, the tea is quite sour, similar to sour candy, and I actually enjoy this “Khatta Meetha” taste. When you have a sore throat, this warm, sour beverage is extremely comforting.
20 gms of this tea is priced at INR 495, which may seem steep, but the luxurious glass bottle that it comes in is reusable and the tea itself is of excellent quality. The proof of this tea lies in its natural sour taste which is evidence enough of its high vitamin C content. I will definitely be stocking up on this tea because of my allergies and would encourage all of you to give this lovely immunity booster a try. The yummy taste of sour candy with the goodness of vitamin C is the perfect combination in a cup indeed!
Ask any Indian grandma how to cope with dry skin in the winter months and she will lovingly direct you towards a bowl of honey. Honey helps in retaining the skin’s moisture in the cold weather and adds a bounciness and youthfulness to the skin, which is exactly what the Seer Secrets Honey & Geranium Pore Refining Multi Cleanser is also able to do. This extremely gentle face wash is a boon for those who suffer from dry, irritated, chapped, or sensitive skin and here is why I say so.
The proof of the pudding is in its ingredients and this face wash has coconut extracts, raw honey, geranium oil, and rosewood essential oil as its key ingredients. These ingredients make sure that while the cleanser removes dirt from the pores, the skin does not lose its natural oils and suppleness. The formula is in the form of a honey colored gel that does not froth a lot and feels very mild on the skin. This lack of excessive froth makes sure that the product is not dehydrating at all.
This gentle formula is suitable for those who have been struggling with sensitive skin that reacts to harsh chemicals in face washes. I also love its sweet, refreshing scent that is very relaxing.
The product comes in a bottle with a pump that makes it so convenient to use. The price of INR 387 for a 100ml bottle is a little steep but if you have never found the perfect product for dry and sensitive skin then your search will definitely end with this product. A must buy for the cold weather in my opinion!
Green Tea is my go-to drink whenever I have had a little too much to eat or just need a cozy cup to cuddle with. The Seer Secrets Lemongrass Green Tea is the latest member of my green tea family, and I must confess that I am completely partial to this baby. Seer Secrets has managed to impress me yet again with this product and here is why.
This green tea has a unique texture and comes in the form of “pearls” of tea leaves. You are supposed to drop 2-3 pearls in a cup, add boiling water and let it simmer, within a few minutes you will have a cup of delicious and soothing green tea that resembles the green tea at fancy tea places and hotels in terms of flavor.
Unlike the standard bitter green teas, this one is pretty mild and has a refreshing zesty taste and smell. This is due to the lemongrass extracts added to the tea leaves which make the tea tastier and healthier too. Also, this tea arrived at my doorstep in the signature Seer Secrets tin with a beautiful glass jar inside that held the actual product. The glass jar adds a luxurious element to the tea brewing and drinking experience and is a wonderful touch in my opinion.
This tea contains anti-oxidants, regulates blood pressure, boosts metabolism and aids digestion. I enjoy drinking it post a heavy meal and it instantly makes me feel lighter and energized. Overall, it lives up to its claims and the non-bitter taste makes it a winner for me. The price of INR 423 for a 50gm jar is a little steep but if you are a connoisseur of the beverage who is willing to spend the money for a great cup of tea then you must try out this product!
In the recent years, there has been a lot of uproar against deodorants that contain Aluminum because of the health hazards associated with the metal. Today I will be talking about a unique deodorant that comes in the form of a cream and is Aluminum Compound Free. This product is the Seer Secrets Lemon Cypress Japanese Mint Deodorant Cream which contains active Silver ions and claims to be a much better alternative to regular deodorant.
First of all, full marks to Seer Secrets for the packaging. The actual jar of the cream comes inside a long, cylindrical can, both of which have a cool yellow and silver design on the label. I am definitely going to reuse the outer can for storage. As for the actual cream, it is white in color and has a refreshingly sweet scent that is reminiscent of crushed lemon candy. This pleasant scent lasts in the underarm area for 2-3 hours and keeps mild body odor at bay. However, if you suffer from really bad body odor then this cream won’t be able to mask it completely. Moving on to sweat absorption, I have noticed that the cream continues to absorb sweat for a good 4-5 hours, but this time can be extended if you apply a larger amount of product to begin with. These properties make it a perfect daily deodorant for those who do not want something super strong and are going to stay in a relatively cool environment all day. If you are planning on hitting the gym or are heading outdoors on a sunny day then I would recommend something stronger.
Another thing that I love about this deodorant cream is its wonderful cooling action on the skin that lasts for at least an hour. This, along with its hydrating nature, makes it the perfect treat for the underarm area, which is often one of the most neglected parts of the body. I have already begun to notice improvements in the skin of the region after a few days of use. It has become softer and slightly brighter than usual. This product also claims to have a mild whitening action with regular use, which may be useful for those who suffer from darker underarms caused by aerosol sprays. What I appreciate about the brand is that they have provided the detailed benefits of each of the ingredients, which makes me trust the product even more. The cream contains Zinc and Silver Ions that act as anti-bacterial agents and are embedded in Kaolin clay which helps to absorb dirt. The lemon and cypress essence helps to reduce the wetness and the body odor while the Japanese Mint cools the skin and prevents itchiness and irritation. In fact, the brand states that the product can also be used to treat mild fungal infections and rashes on other parts of the body such as the neck and the toes. This is an added bonus for those who are fans of multi-tasking products.
This delightful deodorant cream is priced at INR 324 for 100gms and is available on Amazon. Pricewise, I think it is quite affordable considering the price of regular deodorants and how little of this product you need each day. As for the performance of the cream, it does exactly what it claims to do and the natural ingredients speak for themselves. This is definitely a must buy in my opinion and has left me thoroughly impressed. I am surely going to check out more products from Seer Secrets soon and will hopefully have some more amazing recommendations for you guys! Until then, do try out this deodorant cream and let me know if you love it as much as I do 🙂
