PRODUCT REVIEW: XAF’S BATH & BODY (SOAPS)

This is another review of Xafira Mendonsa’s hand crafted soaps. Today I am going to review two more of her soaps, both of which are extremely exotic.

The first soap that I have tried is Papaya. This soap is suitable for all skin types. Papaya is excellent for balancing the oiliness of the skin and is used to give a rejuvenated look to the skin. Moreover, this soap contains essential oils that keeps the skin tight! I found it to be a perfect summer soap!

The second soap is extremely unique: charcoal and green tea! This soap bar absorbs odours, making it an ideal soap for someone who works outdoors or in a dusty and polluted environment. Activated charcoal is very helpful in washing away odour and green tea helps to rejuvenate skin cells and fight any inflammation. This soap helps to keep the skin clean, soft and moist. This soap is especially suitable to those having dry skin.

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.

PRODUCT REVIEW: XAF’S BATH & BODY (SOAPS)

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.

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!

PRODUCT REVIEW: TEA TREE ESSENTIAL OIL BY REY NATURALS

Product: Tea Tree Essential OiltempImageForSave

Manufacturer: Rey Naturals

Quantity: Available in 15 ml

Price: Rs. 279 for 15 ml

My Rating: 4/5

The latest product that I have started using is Tea Tree Essential Oil by Rey Naturals. It is made out of 100% Natural Tea Tree Oil-steam distilled from the leaves of the tea tree plant.

I started using this essential oil as I was suffering from a mild but persistent dandruff problem. I added a few drops of the essential oil to my regular hair oil and applied the mixture to my hair. I washed my hair with shampoo after a couple of hours. I noticed that the dandruff had reduced considerably after just a couple of such applications.

The Tea Tree Essential Oil is a multi-purpose oil. Not only can it be used in dilution with regular hair oil if one is having a dandruff problem, if you have any spots on your skin, dilute your skin cream with a few drops of this essential oil. You can also add a few drops of this essential oil to your bath water to have a soothing bath!

Moreover, the tea tree essential oil can be used in washing machines or washing water to sanitise clothes and as an insect repellent by putting a few drops of the oil on cotton balls and placing it near areas where there are insects.

I found this product extremely useful as well as good value for money. I definitely recommend this to everyone!

I have recently started using a new product, a night repair gel made by Mystic Kaori. I was curious about what this night repair gel was made of and I checked out the ingredients which are as under:

INGREDIENTS: Farm fresh aloe vera, sandalwood powder, raktachandan, saffron, vitamin E oil, geranium essential oils, Frankenstein oil rose water and vegetable glycerine.

A night repair gel needs to be applied on a cleansed face every night before going to sleep. The night repair gel by Mystic Kaori needs to be refrigerated. It spreads evenly all over the face. The skin is not oily or sticky in the morning, after the application of the night repair gel.

Every woman needs to use a night repair gel or cream after a certain age. It helps to keep your skin hydrated at night, helps in better blood circulation, helps in your skin having an even skin tone and prevents your skin from sagging.

I have started applying this night repair gel every night before I go to bed. I will be posting about the benefits observed to my skin after using this product for a few weeks.
