February favourites

Hi All, I am so happy to welcome you all to my ‘own’ blog, ‘flavoursofbeauty.com’. This is going to be a post on february favourites. I know that many of you who follow me on Instagram are looking forward to this post, because you all have been incessantly asking me about the details of those gorgeous afghani chandbalis. Yes I have included it here.So here are my feb favourites.

1.Bamboo tooth brush from happy healthy me

Happy healthy me, is an organic store located at Indiranagar and you would have seen my haul picture in Instagram. I bought a couple of organic food products and this cute little bamboo brush. The bristles are not so soft if you think that’s how natural brush bristles feel like. But the head is quite small. So it reaches all those nooks and corners in the mouth and just does a good job in cleaning your teeth.

2.Juicy Chemistry favourites
Yes I have written many many posts reviewing JC products and if you didn’t know, Juicy chemistry is now available at #myNykaa (here). There will be 15% off on JC products in Nykaa most of the time. So keep an eye for that. The tea tree essential oil and lemon-spearmint lip balm really worked for me. The oil is versatile and I am coming up with few DIYs for you, on how you can use this oil with your skin care products to reduce acne, dandruff etc. The lip balm is rich in essential oils and is more on oily side than creamy. It melts on contact with lips and moisturizes it well.



3.Krya anti-dandruff hair cleanser

I have oily scalp that tends to get itchy on the third day of shampooing. Eventhough I use natural shampoo bars, it didnot help me reduce the dandruff. But this grain based cleanser surely did. I bought body oil, body cleanser,laundry powder, face cleanser and hair cleanser from Krya. Purely ayurvedic and organic certified, I trust and love Krya products. The oil secretion of my scalp has balanced with just couple of uses and it doesn’t get itchy anymore. Detailed review coming soon.Buy krya products here

4.The Skin Pantry Rhassoul Clay mask
This clay based face mask is the latest buy and I have only used it 3 times so far. Love the skin tightening and toning effect of this one. It is on the expensive side, but I am loving it.This mask has a whipped mousse like consistency and has moroccan rhassoul clay, organic apricot oil, vit e oil and organic rose hydrosol as ingredients. Check them out here

5. Now for the most awaited product : The gorgeous pink afghan chandbalis
I bought this and another set from an insta store called #dropdeadg (dropdeadgorgeous) and let me tell you, I have been on the look out for these in many insta stores and dropdeadg sells it at the most economic rate. Do check out their insta page. I also bought this green ones from them which are equally lovely.The packing is cute and pretty, the delivery was fast and the products look exactly like the pictures they showed me. Very impressed with this store. Since I bought two products, they gave me a discount on the total.

I hope you liked this post. Let me know if you would like a monthly favourites post.Comment below for more info on any of these. Also like and subscribe to my blog for updates.

Green Clay Detox Mask

I have reviewed many products from Gia already. Today the post is about French green clay detox mask from the brand. This is a wonderful mask for oily skin, as it absorbs impurities and controls excess oil.

Price : 300Rs for 50gm

Ingredients:

As you can see, this is a mix of 4 clays and it has no added fragrance or preservatives.

French Green Clay is a 100% natural bio-organic material and contains a cornucopia of valuable elements, with several important mineral oxides, magnesium, calcium, potassium, dolomite, silica, manganese, phosporous, silicon, copper, and selenium.

Rhassoul clay is rich in magnesium, silica, potassium, and calcium, which all help to nourish your skin. The molecular structure of Rhassoul clay gives it a unique ability to absorb excess dirt and oil, as well as extract toxic matter from the skin.

Kaolin clay works by reducing the production of sebum.

Fuller’s Earth or Multani mitti is known to tighten pores, diminish scars, lighten and detan skin.

Texture:

This is a fine powder when dry with pale green colour because of the green clay.

When mixed with water, it forms a paste but it is not a smooth paste. There are soft lumps of colloidal oatmeal in it.

My experience:

This is a good buy as only half a teaspoon of product is enough to cover face and neck. 50g lasts really long. I have still have half a tub left. I don’t apply it as a thick mask as I don’t want to dry out my skin. The mask smells earthy and is a very mild smell. It gets dried out pretty fast. I don’t wait for it to get dried as that stretches my skin. I wash it off with water after about 8min.

This masks removes extra oiliness from skin, cleanses it well, massaging while washing it off increases blood flow in face and removes impurities. This is for oily and combination skin and will further dry out skin, if used for dry facial skin.

I like this a lot and this is different from the herbal masks I usually use. But it doesn’t brighten up my skin as much as herbal masks.

Hope you all liked the post.
