Facial Mists – The Bath candy Company

With the warrior Face cleanser ( Review here ) I picked up two Facial mists “Jardin De Aromatique” and “I am Fresh Now”from The Bath candy Company.

Price : Rs. 199/- for each

As fancy as the names sound they are all like the regular toners. They are used as you use any toner and also as a freshening spray.  I thought of writing two different posts but both of them are almost same except for one ingredient.  Oh I forgot, they send you copy of list of ingredients and how to use stuff. And also two scented bath candles as a gift.

Coming to the Products, they both feel the same and smell the same to me. They have this strong Teatree oil scent. They did mention that these are Facial and Body Treatment Mists, helps acne.

Except for the natural and Paraben free, these are no different from the other ones I used so far. The treatment part, I have not used them that long to notice any visible difference.

I love the way I am fresh now Feels on the skin,It does have some minty freshness and if you using the chilled one, this feels like a bit of heaven on your skin.

Jardin De Aromatique is more soothing and best applied in the night as it has lavender oil in i. It helps you calm down and have a better sleep.

Would I recommend?

Yes, Definitely. Why to use chemicals on the face when you can get these natural,cruelty free products on the skin at the same price. These can be used as moisturizers on those lazy days.

4

Company Overview (Took from their Facebook page)

They are also Natural, cruelty-free,Parabens Free.

Price : Rs. 250/- ( I got Rs.50/- discount as it was the first order for the product)

This is my first order and much awaited one. I ordered 2 facial mists and one cleanser. Due to not so good courier services here, order took really long to reach me, it took the same time for me to try and review it here.

Warrior is a Charcoal cleanser which can be used both as both cleanser and a Face Pack.With Activated Charcoal in everything these days from the cleansers to the tooth paste, I had to buy this as soon as i saw the charcoal on it. I used it as a pack. Not so appealing, it is a hard and coarse to feel. It is not spread out easily as it is, that is why it is important to add water to make it a paste and spread it easily. It smells like Teatree oil and Multani mitti ( Fullers earth) though it is not on the ingredient list.

2

Take a small amount of the product and add water to make it a paste and apply it on the face . Leave it on for 5- 10 minutes and wash it off. It does leave a black tint on the face if cleaned it off with only water. This black tint can be removed by using a gentle cleanser. I used Besan (Chickpea flour).

1

After Cleansing off, I noticed a cleaner and fresher face.

Skin feels soft and smooth.

They send out a copy of ingredients and the directions on how to use the product in the package.

Love the warrior. I am adding this to my travel kit as it is easy to apply and dries off quickly. It takes max 10 minutes to get clearer and clean skin.

 

Summer Outfits

When we say summer outfits, all we can think about is the easy breezy clothes that feels like nothing on the skin. When we say easy breezy does not mean mundane or boring, they can be stylish too. Take your pick from the styles below.

  1. Shorts :

shorts

Shorts are the first ones to come to our mind. Shorts does not have to be dedicated for beaches, you can team it up with a well fitted blazer for those casual brunch meetings.

2. Culottes:

culottes

Who can forget these airy, comfortable pants. You can team them up with a crop top and a blazer or go casual with just an oversized tee or go formal with well fitted blouse or shirt. Take a hint from the ladies above.

3. Summer Dresses:

summerdresses

Florals,Prints, maxis,little dresses in bright colors or Pastels. When it comes to dresses there is a wide variety. You can pick according to your comfort and stay calm.

4. Skirts :

skirts

Who can go wrong with the long skirts. You can pick your fabric and team them up with a tee or tank tops or even a cotton blouse.

5. Kurtis with Palazzos:

kurtipalazzos

As much as I love wearing shorts and dresses, by the end of the day I love Indian wear. They are so versatile if you are open to bit of experimenting. The place where i live is a bit conservative, so I prefer wearing Indian outfits. Wearing just the kurta,salwar everyday can be a bit frustrating, so I usually team up kurtis with Palazzos or the Culottes. They not only amp up the style quotient, they can be ever so comfortable.

6. Kurtis with Skirts :

kurtis_with_skirts

I love wearing long skirts, especially the cotton ones. I usually wear them with a cotton blouse or a tank top and scarf. After moving back to my hometown with the limited options in clothing I started teaming them with long kurtis.And they have become my comfort wear ever since. They are ethnic, comfortable without compromising on the style.

7. Sarees: cottonsarees

Sarees!!! The Never ending Love story. I love wearing sarees. I have seen only sarees around while growing up. So many varieties, so many fabrics,so many styles. The list never ends. I personally believe every  Girl looks her best in a saree. I usually wear them on sundays to the church or just whenever feel like it. I usually prefer wearing cotton ones of the fabrics locally bought. With the right blouse you can don a saree anytime you want.

Hope you like my Compilation of summer Outfits. In my next post I will talk about the Summer fabrics. I would love to hear your personal favorite in the comments.

Easy Summer Facepacks -DIY

Summer is here and so am I. It is my subtle way of saying I am not here much. But I am sure you are going to love this post. I am lazy to even use the store bought facepacks just because It takes time to wash it off. If you are anything like me then this post is for you.

I am sharing 3 face packs with you in this post. So lets get to it.

Papaya face pack  argvwef

Papaya : Do I even have to talk about its benefits both health and beauty. This fruit is easily available these days. You just need a little bit of it and rest you can eat it or put it in your salad. Healthy living I say.:-P . You don’t have to cover the face with a thick layer of papaya pulp, you just need a spoonful of it. Apply on the face and let it dry. Meanwhile you can get to the remaining papaya. You will feel the skin tighten as it dries, wash it off with cold water.

It cleans the pores, removes tan and gives a healthy glow to the skin.

watermelon

Watermelon : Who can forget this during summer? This is our summer staple and this is one of my favorite too. Unlike Papaya, you need not mash it, you can just take a small piece and rub it all over the face. Leave it on till dries and wash it with cold water.

This cools down the skin and removes any dirt from the skin. Once you wash you will see a much cleaner face.

cucumber

Cucumber : Summers and we don’t talk about this?! Cucumber is popularly known for its beauty benefits and lets not get into its health benefits, this post will take forever then. Once used on skin, it removes tan,cleans the pores,cools down the skin, Closes the pores.

  • Take a slice of cucumber and rub it all over the face. Once dried, wash it off.
  • Grate the cucumber and apply it roughly all over the face. Dry it and wash it off with cold water.
  • Grate the cucumber, squeeze the juice and apply this on the skin. Let it dry and wash it off with plain cold water.

Though I prefer the store bought products, these packs are good to use during summers. They feel light on the skin and cools down the skin. Ideally I am sure you can use any fruit on skin. I can bear the smell of these 3 and oranges, but we don’t get oranges now so, these 3 should do for me.

  • They feel light on the skin.
  • Dries off quickly.
  • Cools down the skin.
  • Calms the sun burnt skin.
  • Pore cleansers and closers.
  • Clears the skin
  • Gives Healthy glow.

What more do you need from the face Packs. Go try it out and let me know how you feel.Do leave in the comments your summer facial fruit.

Till the next post take care..mwah.

Dandruff Free recipe – DIY

mademoiselle+jules+lemon+coconut+oil

Today I am posting another DIY Which is super easy and shows amazing results. The climate transition made my scalp revolt causing dandruff. I was advised “The best thing to get rid of dandruff is to stay stress free”. Stress free !!!!?. I have like 5 strands on my head and there is dandruff and you asking me to stay stress free. I wanted to try the natural ways to get rid of it, as dandruff shampoos are filled with chemicals and I don’t want to lose those 5 strands too. I tried Methi/Fenugreek pack, curd packs. Finally I gave in to the shampoo, but they didnt help the problem much either.

Recently I came across this booklet of Ayurvedic medicine (Medical science of Ancient India ) . This is written by Panditha Maharshi Elchuri, I am sure if you are from Andhra Pradesh you would have definitely heard of him. Today’s Post is one of his recipes.

You just need 2 ingredients for this

Good Quality Coconut oil

Lemons

For Half a kg 500 gms of coconut oil you need 5 medium sized lemons. Extract the juice from the lemons and mix it with coconut oil. Put this on low flame and let it boil till only the oil is left.Cool it and strain and pour it in a clean bottle.

How to Use it:

Every day morning or Evening apply this oil on scalp and use any herbal hair wash powder or shampoo. Do not oil your hair again after the wash.

On regular use you will see the results in few days itself. It claims to get rid of dandruff, lice, itchy scalp, hair fall and make hair black.

My Verdict :

It s been 3 days since I started using this recipe. Though My dandruff is not gone completely, i can feel its lessened and no itchy scalp. The bonus, my hair looks super shiny and healthy.

I am also using the shampoo, mentioned in the booklet. The ingredients are a bit difficult to find and I have to get the english names for those which I am not sure I can find all. If you still want me to share do let me know, I will share the other recipes as well.

Till then stay wise beauty wise. Happy weekend to all.

  3. Does not transfer the product.
  4. Has 24 months shell life since opening the product.
  5. Good staying power.
  6. Does not bleed
  7. Does not settle at the creases.
  8. Moisturizes as well.

Till now i don’t have any thing negative to say about it. It looks good on all skin tones.

That’s how it looks on me
