Acmed Facewash from Ethicare Remedies - Review


Last time I reviewed Glomed face wash from Ethicare Remedies and many of you mentioned that you have been using Acmed face wash and liking it a lot. So even I take up Acmed as the next product to review :)

Product Info:
Specially formulated face wash for gentle cleansing of oily & acne prone skin
Lipobeeds - direct drug delivery system also offers aesthetic appeal.
Slightly acidic pH. (skin friendly)
With good lathering effect for complete cleansing experience.
Gentle cleansing base for irritation free cleansing.
Attractive, elegant pack.

Contains :
Tea tree oil, D-Panthenol, Vitamin E, Aloe vera

Price: 165/-
Qty: 70 gms
The facewash comes in a soft transparent tube. The tube has flip open cap with a hole pierced inside. The cap is tight enough. The tube houses in outer cardboard box on which entire product description is printed.

My take on the product:

Acmed is a gel like moderately thick face wash. The translucent face wash is so gorgeous to look at. It has dark purple n white color micro beads scattered all through the face wash. The white ones slightly feel rolling on your skin as you massage the face wash on your face, but the purple disappear on rubbing. 
I liked the aroma of the face wash very much that is so stimulating. The face wash generates good lather and takes no times rinsing off with splashes of water. You may feel the fragrance even after rinsing. 
The face wash is made for oily skin to provide gentle pimple care and mine is clear skin with no such issue. Secondly I, being a dry skin person, felt the requirement of applying a hydrating moisturizer when I tried this product.
So to be fair in my review, I handed over this face wash to one of my close friend who suffers from acne/pimple most of the times. On her regular usage of the product for almost ten days twice a day, she claimed that the products keeps acne in check. Being a sensitive skin person, she was bit scared if it may worsen the skin's condition, but is happy to find the product effective and not harsh.
The Tea Tree oil is a well known antiseptic and antifungal treatment so it even control spreading the acne on clean parts of face. D-Panthenol has softening properties that improves the appearance of irritated skin.
To conclude I can say Acmed is keeping its promise very well and can be tried to cure acne-affected skin.

Is non irritant.
Best works for Oily skin type.
Minimizes acne issue.
Smells nice.
Infused with tea tree oil.
Needs very less quantity to clean up entire face.
Mild on skin.

May be slightly expensive for some.
Won't be liked much by dry skin people.

Vegetal Body Moisturizing Lotion Review

Hi Everyone

Today I am introducing a brand that is here to enable the world realize and be benefitted from full strength of natural products for better life. Before I share about their product range, let get into some details of the brand itself.

Brand Info:
Webuynatural.com is an eCommerce portal selling natural products of major brands with three primary objectives viz. a) It intends to be a movement to popularize the usage of natural products b) It makes customer shopping experience easier by making all natural products available at one platform. c) It not only connects sellers with buyers but also extends special preference to NGOs, women enterprises and rural enterprises making natural products.

Product Info:
Vegetal Body Moisturizing Lotion is specially formulated for dry and extra dry skin. It intensely moisturizes, softens and smoothen your skin. It contains outstanding humectants and moisturizing properties which keep the skin smooth, soft and elastic while maintaining the skin’s natural pH balance.
  • Triticum aestivum (Wheat) extract: Enriched with Vitamin-E which provides nourishment to skin, 
  • Matricaria chamomilla ( Babuna) extract: Helps to repair skin texture, 
  • Aloe barbadensis (Aloe Vera) extract: Provides oil free hydration, 
  • Camellia sinensis (Tea) extract: Enriched with catechin maintains skin pH balance.
Price: Rs. 348 
Qty: 120 ml
Shelf Life: 2 yrs. 
The Vegetal Body Moisturizing Lotion comes in a off white color bottle. It has a flip open cap in the same color. The cap locks real tight, so makes the packaging spill proof and leakage proof. There is every required detail printed on the packaging. I find the bottle packaging more hygienic as compared to jars. 
Direction for use: 
Apply gently all over the body, with special attention to severely dry areas, slowly massaging on it. Best used after bathing when your skin is most receptive to hydration.

My take on the product:
The Vegetal body moisturizing lotion claims to be 100% natural formulation derived from bio active extracts of wheat seed and chamomile. Bio Active is the extract of those active ingredients which are isolated from the Ayurvedic herbs that play a vital role in the treatment or healing of your particular ailment. 
The pearly white color lotion is of sufficiently thick consistency. The lotion is capable of deeply moisturizing the skin without leaving any sheen behind. It spreads very easily on skin and penetrates deep in no time.
I have noticed that it gives best results when applied to slightly damp skin after shower. The excellent absorption quality of the lotion helps to keep the skin hydrated for longer than expected duration. I found that the dry patches n cracks on my skin go invisible post application.

The lotion has a fresh blend of citrusy n floral mix fragrance that I found delightful. The skin is left lightly scented for quite some time after applying a layer. 

The regular use of this soothing lotion is sure to restore skin elasticity and improve texture of skin. This emollient-rich, hydrating body lotion retains moisture preserved in the skin to ensure firm skin, but thankfully causes no greasy feel.

1. Infused with Bio-Active extracts.
2. Intense skin firming formula.
3. Provides moist & silky skin
4. 100% safe & natural
5. Mainly for Dry Skin type.
6. Smells Nice.
7. Improves overall skin texture.
8. Light on skin.
9. Gets easily absorbed. 
10. Maintains pH balance of the skin.

I wish there should be some more quantity for this price. But again we need to pay for good quality, so I don't mind the price.

Overall, Vegetal Body Moisturizing Lotion is a non-greasy daily body lotion that delivers deep hydration and replenishes the skin to rediscover the lost radiance. With a unique blend of skin friendly constituents, it is destined for becoming an essential part for your daily skin are regime. I am happy that my skin has found a companion for upcoming winter season.

Shelf Life: 12 months

Everteen Natural Intimate Hygiene Wipes are a pack of 15 individually sealed sachets that are packed in a cardboard carton. Each sachet holds one use-n-throw wipe. The color theme of the packaging of Everteen wipes has been kept identical to Everteen Intimate Wash that I have been using for almost an year now. Infact the fuschia pink and green floral print on white base instantly gives anyone a fresher feel to look at. I really like it  a lot.
My Experience with the product:
On being introduced by the brand about Everteen Natural Intimate Wipes, I was so impressed with their thoughtful product launch. yeah, I have been using the Everteen Intimate Wash and found it really useful. But I had been wishing for something that can be used when I am pressed for time and is handy enough. I swear Everteen must have anticipated my wish and designed Everteen Intimate Wipes for all women interested in the health and well-being of their intimate area.
The Everteen Intimate Wipes deserve a clap for using purely biodegradable fabric. Each wipe is as large as 150mm X 200mm in dimension that can be comfortably spread on your palm for proper cleaning on intimate area.
This product reached me quite on time just a day before I had been packing my stuff for camping. And ofcourse I was concerned about maintaining my intimate hygiene during all the sporting and post-workout activities that usually tend to cause itching, odor or some unusual discharge. I felt blessed to find a solution in form of Everteen Intimate Wipes and segregated few pieces in my handbag and gym bag. These wipes are quite gentle on skin with a moist feel and mild scent that ensures a feel good factor. An added feature of being pH balanced is simply wonderful so that using these wipes won’t remove what Mother Nature has put down there and is essential for my intimate health.
Not only being easily portable is a plus point during travel, but I have certain uncomfortable feel using washroom when I visit a friend's or relative's place and mostly I avoid it due to the fear of infections. but now I feel confident having a last minute refresher item in my bag to be used after I relieve myself outside my own house.
Everteen Intimate Wipes is something you would feel using to freshen up yourself before and after sexual activity. Not only a fresh feel is experienced, but also the chances are reduced of upsetting the delicate balance of your intimate area due to any foreign bacteria.
Yet another occasion when Everteen Intimate Wipes are nothing less than blessing is during those special days of the month when most of women feel disgusting because the smell of their own intimate area puts them off. Ofcourse, we need to take extra care of our hygiene. But these wet wipes can help cleaning small amount of residue from external area of vagina much better than dry wipes. And in turn it will minimize the chances of harmful bacteria cause bad odor.
  • Made of 100% natural & biodegradable fabric.
  • Relieves Intimate Discomfort.
  • Helps Prevent Vaginal Infection.
  • Paraben, Alcohol & SLS Free.
  • Hypo-allergic

A strong recommendation from me to every women who cares for herself.

Glomed Face Wash by Ethicare Remedies -Review

Hi Friends

If you have been reading my blog since last few months and entered one of my biggest giveaway sponsored by team Ethicare, many of you must have received the product which I am going to review today. This product Glomed Face Wash was sent to more than 50 participants that time and I somehow got to use and review it now ;)  
The facewash comes in a soft transparent tube. The tube has flip open cap with a hole pierced inside. The cap is tight enough. The tube houses in outer cardboard box on which entire product description is printed. 

Key Ingredients:
Glycolic Acid, Liqcorice extract, Pro Vit B5, Aloevera.

Price: Rs. 160 
Qty: 60 gms. 
My take on the product:
The face wash is a thick concentrate that looks light pink in the tube, but is translucent as you pour some on your palm. There are micro beads of bright pink color in the face wash that make it look so pretty. 
The face wash smells nice. You need just a pea sized of liquid for cleansing your entire face. 
The micro beads don't actually give you a feeling on your skin as they vanish as soon as you mix the facewash with water on your palm. The skin feels cleansed properly taking away all kinds of impurities. The face wash packaging mentions that it is meant for oily skin and recommends using it thrice a day for good results. But I use it only once a day usually before going to bed in the night as my skin is more of dry to normal side. The facewash didn't cause me any breakouts though.
Now talking about the claims of the product that it reduces wrinkles and improves complexion, I need some more time to comment on it as its been around 10-12 days of usage. The facewash has surely improved texture of my skin. The liqcorice is one of the natural source of fairness, and tends to make it fairer if used regularly. Also Aloe Vera soothes the hurt skin and keeps it hydrated for longer. I like Pro Vitamin B5 in the formulation that enhances regeneration of new skin cells and gives youthful appearance. Overall, I have experienced no irritation or side effects, and I feel like continuing with its use. It has appropriate combination of ingredients to soften and brighten the skin.

Nicely concentration
Better efficacy
Offers aesthetic appeal with microbeads.
Good lathering effect.
Irritation free cleansing.
Attractive, elegant pack.
Smell Good.

Expensive for the quantity offered.

IHA Boro Heal Foot Care Scrub Bar Review

Hello Friends

Hope you read my recent post where I shared some of my fav foot care products. On receiving good response for the same, I just thought of continuing with the same theme i.e. foot care and decided to share my experience about one of the product that I bet, will steal your heart. The product is Boro Heal Foor Care Scrub Bar from IHA Vedic Beauty. Read on to know why is it so dear to me ;)
Product Info:
IHA Boro Heal Foot Care Scrub Bar is specially formulated to provide tender care to your feet. It gently exfoliates the dead hard skin, dirt, grime, toxins & infections from your feet & heels, making them soft, supple & smooth. It's natural antiseptics & healing agents help removing infections & healing cracks, resulting in softer, smooth heels & heals the feet in a short time.

The foot scrub bar comes in cardboard box with all details mentioned on it like how to use it, what has gone into its formulation, price n quantity etc. A big hole cutout on the cardboard box shows the soap without opening the packaging. The soap bar itself is neatly sealed in clear sheet.

Natural extract of Turmeric Root oil, Sandalwood oil, Aloe Leaf oil, Karanj oil, Borax, Luffa Fruit Fiber.
Price: Rs. 120
Weight:100 gms
Shelf Life: 3 Years
My Experience:
This foot scrub bar had been the reason I got attracted towards IHA products. I had fallen for it in the first sight honestly. May be because I wanted n needed it so desperately. This foot scrub bar looks so irresistible in its gorgeous green color. And I also liked its round shape for a change unlike other usual ones.  

The uniqueness of this soap bar is that it has luffa fruit fiber embedded in it that is purely obtained from specific fruits. You may relate it to the loofahs we used to get from mature, dried gourd in olden days. The same had been replaced by the commercially available loofahs since many years now. But finding this scrub bar with natural luufa into it, I am really delighted.
As you scrub it on your wet feet and heels, it tickles your feet ;) The scrubbing effect can be experienced right from the very first use of the bar, which keeps on getting more prominent after every use. The benefit of having a natural luffa in the soap is that they are softer and enriched with nature's healing properties since they are grown on earth. These luffas are firm, but are not likely to scratch the skin like abrasive scrubbers.

The soap bar produces creamy lather that doesn't cause dryness since it is infused with some nourishing oils. The soap has lovely fragrance that lasts for really long. I take it as a plus point because it would also be helping fight odor. I can feel the smell in my hands after scrubbing the soap on my feet. 
The infusion of Karanj Oil makes the soap effective to tackle skin diseased or infections because Karanj is said to be one of the most advantageous ayurvedic medicine to treat skin problems. The minor cracks in the heels get healed after prolonged usage. So using this scrub bar on your feet and heels not only ensures smooth exfoliated skin, but also guarantees the skin to be bacteria free.

For utmost benefit, I would suggest to apply a rich foot cream to soften tough skin on your heels.

Removes dead skin from feet n heels.
Heals & repairs cracked heels.
Fights Infections.
Smells Lovely.
Creamy feel on scrubbing.
Has antiseptic properties.
Causes no scratches on skin.
Doesn't melt excessively.
Good Price.

Can't think of any.

I would conclude by strongly recommending IHA Boro Heal Foor Care Scrub Bar to everyone who want soft pampered feet ;)

Look After Your Feet with Aroma Essentials

Hi Friends

How frequently do you visit a beauty parlour to maintain the good health of your feet? Once a month or more than that? I am really feeling awkward admitting that I rarely go for a professional foot care session, but love taking care of my feet at home. Cleaning and massaging my feet every single day is a part of my everyday bathing rituals that I follow more than religiously even when I am short of sufficient time.

Before I write about how these products worked, I wanna tell you my prime concern about my feet. My heels have no visible cracks and are not odor-causing culprits. But I feel extreme level of certain dryness that leads to an itchy feel which causes me discomfort n doesn't let me sleep in the night. Many a times, I need to get up and moisturize them generously with a foot cream or rich massage oil to comfort them.

Currently I am using some great products for my usual foot care from one of my favourite natural skin care range i.e. Aroma Essentials and since I am loving the result, I would like you to know about those products as well.

1. Foot Soak made up of Sea Salts, Herbs and Rose Oil.
Its a beautifully composed mint green colored foot soak having dried rose petals in it. It smells irresistibly heavenly. I sprinkle sufficient salt crystals in a flat tub filled with lukewarm water (or fresh water depending on weather), swish the mixture around and soak my tired feet for as long as I want. The Rose Oil really adds a zing to the foot bath because this aroma is directly associated with feelings of deep relaxation and mental peace.. Just a 10 mins soak ensures relief from aches, neutralizes odor (if any) and ease burning feet effectively. Not to forget, it works as an anti-bacterial step also.

Using pumice stone to scrub down the rough calluses on the heel is a must-do post soaking.

2. Foot Scrub made up of Wheat Grass, Spearmint and Mint Leaves.
Its a coarsely milled powdered that has to be mixed with water to make a thick paste out of it and then rubbing gently on the feet. It has lovely smell and doesn't feel harsh on skin. Scrubbing my feet with this foot scrub helps to get rid off that hard-to-remove dirt and rough skin with minimal effort and prevents all kind of patchy skin accumulated around. On scrubbing, it gives a nice hydrated feel unlike all scrub I used earlier.

3. Heel Cream made up of Cocoa Butter n Natural Salicylic Acid
For deeper moisturization, I massage my feet with this thick cream concentrating mainly on drier areas bcz it is loaded with goodness of cocoa butter. Those who have cracked heels will surely be recovering from all deficiencies after few applications of this cream as it is a complete diet for your feet. I won't mind calling it He(a)l Cream ;)

This very basic, but regular routine is my way to nurture the beauty and suppleness of my feet. Come winters, and I would be enjoying sound sleep covering my pampered and well-attended feet in cotton socks after this whole procedure.
What does your foot care routine involve? Do share with us :)
If you want to order any of these products, please contact Aroma Essentials or call 9886497272 for any other queries.
