When it comes to skincare and other bath and body luxuries – I am extremely choosy and I tend to look out for the options that are free from parabens and other harmful chemicals etc. I always love organic skincare products. For holiday 2017, I was given this Travel Gift Set by the wonderful Ma Earth Botanicals team and I must say that I am super impressed with their products.

I like it as a everyday shampoo. As I have a medium thick hair- I got about 4 washes from this 50 ml bottle. I like the smell of this one.
Because of it’s mix of medicinal ingredients – I find it smelling as natural ever! The mix of Reetha, Shiakai, Amla etc. Very natural. It’s a gel like shampoo and It doesn’t lather much like the commercial shampoo. But, does pretty good job in cleansing the scalp and taking away all dirt etc. Hair felt bouncy, soft and it gave good volume to hair after washing which I really liked. I felt my scalp clean. NO itchiness or any hair fall issues etc.

I used it right after cleansing. I soaked a cotton pad in this and swiped it all over my face. it feels very fresh when using this. Love it.

It’s not a best product in my opinion. I Think the ingredient list has non natural items as well. Consistency of the product is gel like, little runny in consistency and it lathers pretty well.
The refreshing citrusy note instantly uplifts your mood too! Scent doesn’t linger for long. But, it’s very refreshing when using it. It cleanses the skin very well and at the same time leaves the skin supple and soft. For winters, You will need a extra layer of moisture for your body.
