Today I am reviewing a product from a brand new to me, Myoho Pure by Priyanka. The name itself has a wonderful origin.
‘Myoho’ was derived from the lotus sutra – Nam Myo Ho Renge Kyo, which means ‘to revive’. As a true believer and follower of the Buddhist practise, we focus on designing products that work towards reviving your skin and hair.
This brand and products were on my wish list for a while, but I was more into lighter, fragrance free, water based products for sometime and for bath I was just using hand made soaps.But in this hot and humid weather, I felt the need to get some physical exfoliators and turned to Myoho.
Initially I was put off by the varied colours of the product which I thought were synthetic pigments. As I read more about the brand and ingredients, I was convinced of the quality of the products and that they use natural ingredients that imparts colour to the products.
The brand is transparent about the ingredients and have clearly explained that they use synthetic but safe preservatives in the approved percentages to ensure that product remains safe for use and doesn’t get contaminated by microbes.
What I bought from the brand
- Apricot & Date Fruit Scrub cum Pack
- Luxurious Glow Serum
Honey Vanilla Body Scrub
Apricot & Date Fruit Scrub cum Pack
This face scrub reminds me of the Forest essentials’ hand pounded organic fruit scrub. There are many common ingredients like dates, apricot, rose, almond oil, peach, fermented fruit pulp, honey and Vit E. Whereas Forest essentials still doesn’t list down their complete ingredients, Myoho has shared their complete ingredient list in the website.
Dates, Fermented Fruit Extract, Fruit Pulp,Sweet Almond Oil , Peach,Oats , Raw Honey , Argan oil, Sesame Seed, Shirish Extract, Punarnava Root Extract, Rosehip Oil , Soya Protein Extract , Vitamin E and Rose Extract
How to use
The scrub needs to be applied to wet skin and it doesn’t tug or pull on the skin. It can easily be spread it and massaged. Leave it for a while and wash it off. You can also use aloe gel for a final massage incase you leave it on till it dries up.
My take on the Apricot & Date Fruit Scrub
The scrub has a thick and sticky consistency like a fruit jam, as you can see. Hence a little goes a long way. i was under the assumption that I would have to mix it with curd or aloe gel for easy spreadability. But the consistency is just perfect and it spreads well on wet face.
Unlike the usual physical exfoliators, there are no harsh scrubby particles in this and hence this will suit all skin types.
The scrub has a sweet smell of the combination of fruit extracts, rose and honey, which is very natural, subtle and appealing.
The dates and apricot scrub has just enough grit to exfoliate the face well and should be used after cleansing.
Skin feels soft, nourished and a subtle glow is left behind on pat dry.
It can also be used as a body scrub if you don’t prefer extremely gritty scrubs.
The two ingredients that really interested me in this are the Punarnava root and Shirish extract, which I haven’t come across in any skincare product (apart from the ayurvedic ones) yet. Especially Punarnava is something you commonly find in most Kerala homes and I am glad the brand has explored and used local herbs for the formulation.
Rosehip oil is anyway favourite of many and is now extensively found in Indian skincare products.
I am truly impressed by the efficacy of this product and I realised how much i missed the spa like experience such products give. Let me know which of the other two product you would like me to review next.
