Beauty Empties- March 2018

Beauty Empties – March 2018

Hello! And Happy Easter to everyone celebrating 🙂 March is over now so let’s talk about a few beauty products I went through last month. 1. Lotus Herbals Alphamoist Alpha Hydroxy Skin Renewal Oil-Free Moisturizer Price: ₹295 for 80ml This is a really good moisturizer for oily skin, lightweight, gets absorbed easily and sets to …

Patanjali Neem-Aloe Vera Face Pack Review

So I actually went to the Patanjali store to buy honey and I spotted this tube and thought… Ok, I don’t know what I thought but I still picked it up. I have never been a fan of their beauty range, it feels gimmicky to me. For a brand claiming to be “herbal” and talking about harmful ingredients other brands use, have quite a few chemicals in their own products.

Patanjali Neem-Aloe Vera Facepack

Ingredients: Aqua, pack base, Methyl Paraben, Propyl Paraben, Sugandhit dravya-QS

Not a lot of information about ingredients and has parabens (if you are concerned about this ingredient).

Price: ₹60 for 60g

Claims: Clear clogged pores, cool, soothes and softens skin.

Packaging & Texture: It comes in a white tube with a flip cap. The product feels creamy and is white in colour with a slight green tint.

Patanjali Neem-Aloe Vera Facepack Texture & Consistency

How to use (as written on the tube): Apply on wet face, massage gently, let it dry for 10-15 minutes and wash with water.

How I do it

I apply a thin layer on cleansed and dry face. Keep it for 10 minutes after which it dries completely. Then I use a small amount of water and massage for a few minutes, to remove the dead skin cells. Wash it off. Apply face mist followed by a lightweight moisturizer.

Results:

  • The smell is refreshing and familiar. A hint of cucumber and menthol but I am still missing something.

  • Gives a mild cooling sensation

  • My face looked clean post rinsing

  • Skin felt really soft and smooth.

  • It did feel slightly dry and stretchy after washing my face.

  • It’s an okay-ish mask for people on a very tight budget but it’s better you guys stick to DIYs. You’ll get better results with those homemade masks.

  • The after effects of this face pack is the same as any of my face cleansers give, sans any dryness.

I’ll give this face pack a hard pass and would rather go for Jeva Charcoal face pack which is affordable and actually works on your skin by drawing out all the gunk.
