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.





Rice starch for hair


Do you know you can get naturally straight and voluminous hair at home. This is literally my Grandmother’s recipe.

When cooking rice, strain excess water from almost cooked rice and keep it aside to cool. The starch is thick in consistency. After shampooing apply this on the hair and leave it on for 3-5 minutes. Rinse it off with water and let them dry naturally.

It not only adds volume and straightens hair, it adds a healthy shine too.

Things to remember :

  • Have to make it fresh.
  • Use only rice not the rice powder.
  • You can even add fresh hibiscus leaves and soak it for few hours.
  • The consistency will be thicker than than the plain water

Rosemary Oil – Benefits

My obsession with oils still continues. I love using oils in my beauty regime. They are effective and inexpensive. And what more they are chemical free. In my last post I mentioned how I use Grapeseed oil (https://beautywisetalks.wordpress.com/2015/07/08/grapeseed-oil-beauty-benefits/ ) and today I will share with you about rosemary oil.


This oil seems to have lot of benefits even in the culinary world. Rosemary oil for its digestive and fragrant properties it is widely used in cooking.

Because of its anti oxidant properties it is used on skin and also known to have hair stimulating properties.

How I Use:

Essential oils are always have to be mixed with carrier oils like olive/coconut/almond/Argan.

I use them for the hair. I have very fine and brittle hair and I am scared to use any chemicals on my hair. I try and use the natural products when it comes to hair care.

I mix few drops of Rosemary oil in the almond oil warm it. And apply on the hair. And I leave it on for a day. I do this when I do not have anything to do the next day.

Or I use this as the last rinse when I wash my hair.

I love the smell and it makes the boring oiling regime, fragrant. And it is known for its hair stimulating properties so why not.

Other Benefits: 


it has anti-ageing properties. 

Can be used as a deodarant.

Mix few drops in water and gargle with to fight bad breath.

You can add it in the shampoo or conditioner too.

But before you grab the bottle check for any allergies and pregnant women consult your physician before you use it.

You can order this easily from online.
