BoN: Bio Organic & Natural

BoN is a journey that started out in Auroville and has grown to a successful organic skincare brand that strongly believes in woman empowerment.

The brand ensures, ‘AllΒ  products are Natural, non-toxic and organic ingredients. None are tested on animals.’

I came across few variants of aloe gel from the brand and chose the saffron one. The brand provides a wide range of skincare and bath goodies.

Ingredients:Aloe Vera gel, Organic papaya extract, Natural Glycerine, and Organic Lemon oil.

Aloe gel is an all purpose gel which is an excellent toner and moisturiser for oily & combination skin types.

Price: Rs 168 for 100gm

Product Claims : This unique preparation of saffron, aloe vera gel and natural papaya extract gives positive results on regular use. A glow upon the face & skin and a protective & restorative effect may be the results upon regular use of this gel that restores & promotes healthy skin while helping to calm, tone and rejuvenate the skin from within.

Experience :
The usual ones you find in stores are green in colour, so I found the different ingredients here interesting. I use this as toner after cleansing my face, if rose water is not available. Also as a moisturiser during summers, as this gel perfectly mattifies my combination skin.

I cannot vouch for the product claims, as I was not a regular user of the product. I used it as a toner and it calms the skin instantly.

How I apply : I take a small quantity of the gel and pats it gently on my face rather than rubbing it all over. This is the better method to apply moisturisers as it gets absorbed to skin effectively this way.
Also you can make a nice refreshing face pack by mixing aloe gel, honey and lime juice. This tones the skin and gives a subtle glow to the skin if uses regularly.

Two of my favorite honey based scrubs

  1. K-Organics Honey Rose Scrub

To know more about K-Organics, see my post https://www.facebook.com/BeautyFlavours/posts/969544213085199

The Honey Rose scrub from K-Organics, is the simplest but most effective scrub I have used till date.

It has just two ingredients, honey and rose petal powder.

Price > Rs230 for 150gm

Packing > Comes in a squeezable pack. This is too thick to be packed in a bottle.

Consistency > The scrub is thick as it is a paste of honey and rose petal powder, and has to be mixed with water to apply evenly on skin. There are no visible beads or particles but the scrub action is so effective as the rose petal powder is mixed with honey. It creates a sight tingling sensation on application.

Fragrance > Smells like honey

Effectiveness > No separate massage is required as washing it off with water itself effectively provides scrub action. The skin looks clearer and brighter with all dirt and grime removed.

The honey moisturises the skin and rose petal powder provides effective exfoliation. This is very mild and can be used daily.

It removes sun tan and makes skin fresher and brighter.

No preservatives, no chemicals and has the purest ingredients.

2. Just Herbs Livelyclean Honey Exfoliating Face Cleansing Gel

Site > http://justherbs.in

Packing > Comes in a bottle.

Price > Rs 395 for 100ml

Main Ingredients > Neem ext., Tulsi , Symplocos bark, Arjuna , Bitter orange peel, Curcuma longa, Honey, Jojoba seed meal.

Consistency > This has a runny consistency with tiny exfoliating particles. It doesn’t need to be mixed with water.

Effectiveness > The scrub is very gentle and cleanses face effectively. Needs to massage the face to effective scrub action. Moisturises skin and doesn’t stretch the skin.

Fragrance > It has a mild sweet pleasant smell as it has fragrance added separately .

Both the products are my favourites and I will definitely repurchase both. Both are very gentle and suitable for all skin types.

On the right is the honey-rose scrub and on the left is the lively clean scrub. As you can see, the consistency is thicker for honey-rose scrub and it is just pure honey.

Lively-clean is easier to use and washes of effortlessly.

Don't Look At ME ;)

Today I will be reviewing the super awesome ‘Don’t Look at me’ face mask from LUSH. β€ͺ#β€ŽLush‬

 

lush

This vivid pastel blue face mask, unlike the general powdery or creamy masks, is a gritty moist mask with ingredients like ground rice, murumuru butter, silken tofu and zingy lemony fresh smell.

This is a fresh mask and is available only from Lush stores.
The gritty ground rice particles scrubs away all dirt and grime but since the particles are not fine, it has to be massaged gently.

Smear the mask directly to cleansed face and let it dry. It doesn’t dry out to the point that it becomes flaky. This just sits as a thin creamy layer on the face. Wash away with warm water after gently massaging for additional scrubbing action. The skin feels really smooth, visibly brighter and squeaky clean. The lime fragrance is like a splash of freshness after a tiring day and just wakes up the skin in no time.

It did not dry out my skin but I have read reviews that said it was a bit drying on sensitive skin.

Now the only disappointing thing is that you have to use it up pretty fast as this being a fresh mask. The expiry was around after 20 days as I had bought it after few days of preparation.

Ingredients : Glycerine, Kaolin, Water (Aqua), Fresh Organic Lemon Juice (Citrus limonum), Organic Silken Tofu, Rice Syrup (Oryza sativa syrup), Grounded White Rice (Oryza sativa starch), Rice Milk (Oryza sativa), Murumuru Butter (Astrocaryum Murumuru), Bentone (Hectorite), Colour 42090, Perfume, Grapefruit Oil (Citrus paradisi), Neroli Oil (Citrus Aurantium amara), Limonene, Geraniol, Linalool, Farnesol.
