I came across the charming Xafira Mendonsa’s amazing hand crafted soaps and she was kind enough to provide me with some samples. Today I am going to review two of her soaps.

The first soap that I have tried is called Lemon & Honey. Xafira calls it a “happy soap” and I must admit that using it and inhaling its fragrance made me feel really happy! I checked out its ingredients and learned that it is made out of lemon essential oils, honey and lemon peels. I felt that this soap particularly suited me as I have an oily skin.

The second soap that I tried was very interesting in appearance and is called Himalayan Pink Rock Salt in Aloe Vera. This soap is for all skin types and is said to draw out toxins from the body. The Himalayan rock salt is said to contain minerals like chromium, zinc and sulphur. This soap is also said to help to prevent acne and keep the skin smooth.

The best part about these soaps is that they are free of artificial foaming agents (detergents), parabens, alcohol, petroleum and artificial preservatives.

I would definitely recommend these soaps to everyone. Though they are pricy, (each soap costs Rs. 250/), they are definitely long lasting and of excellent quality. Xafira lives in Mumbai and can be contacted on 9821735666 or on 9967586929. She can be followed on her Instagram account Creativity with Taste. She is also available on Facebook as Xaf’s Bath and Body.

I had posted a while ago that I had started using the Night Repair Gel by Mystic Kaori. This post is about the benefits that I have experienced after using this product. For those who missed my previous post, the ingredients of the night repair gel are as under:

Of course all women know about the importance of using a night repair product. I have been applying this product since a couple of weeks now and I have noticed a considerable improvement in my skin tone.

I make sure that I apply this gel on my face every night before going to bed. The things that I ensure is that I only apply it on a cleansed face and that I refrigerate the product.

The best part about this night repair gel is that it dissolves beautifully in my skin so that I do not wake up in the morning with a sticky or oily face. I definitely recommend this product to all women!

Product: Hair nutrient with egg oil   tempImageForSave

Manufacturer: Eyova

Quantity: Available in 50 ml

Price: Rs. 590 for 50 ml

My Rating: 4/5

Today I will be posting about an interesting product that I have started using: a hair nutrient with egg oil manufactured by Eyova.

I examined the ingredients of the product and was impressed to learn that each bottle of Eyova contains egg oil that has been extracted from more than 20 eggs using cold press technology.

I have been using this product since a couple of week in accordance with the instructions given, i.e. I massage Eyova hair nutrient on the scalp and leave it on for a minimum of 3 hours and then shampoo my hair.

What are the benefits that I have observed from using this hair nutrient? There has definitely been an improvement in the quality of my hair. The product is also said to prevent hair loss, dandruff and greying and help in hair growth.

Of course I will be able to ascertain that only after I have used this hair nutrient for some months.

I did find this product to be useful. For those people, who do not like the smell of eggs, I will reassure you that the product has a pleasing fragrance and definitely does not smell of egg! I do think that price-wise it is on the higher side but as far as quality is concerned, I definitely recommend this to everyone!

Eyova Hair Nutrient with Egg Oil is available on both Amazon and Flipkart.


Product: French Lavender Essential Oil                     tempImageForSave

Manufacturer: Rey Naturals

Quantity: Available in 10 ml

Price: Rs. 240 for 10 ml

My Rating: 4/5

After using Tea Tree Essential Oil by Rey Naturals, I have now tried out French Lavender Essential Oil manufactured by the same brand. The first thing that struck me about this product was that it had a lovely aroma. When I checked the ingredients, I found that the essential oil is extracted from the fresh flowers of the lavender plant.

Why did I decide to start using this essential oil? The first reason was that I loved its aroma and secondly I found that adding a few drop of this essential oil to any massage oil and applying it on my skin, really helped in giving me a healthy glow!

The French Lavender Essential Oil has many uses! It can be added to a hair oil, to bathing water, to laundry and of course in aroma diffusers.

The best part about this essential oil is that a few drops of it can be applied to your pillow which enables you to get a good night’s sleep!

I really liked this product for its various uses and value for money. I definitely recommend this to everyone!

French Lavender Essential Oil by Rey Naturals can be ordered on Amazon.
