I love discovering natural products. Especially during my pregnancy time, I kept using those products which were totally safe for my skin as well as for my babies. During the third trimester of my pregnancy I started to get those #NotSoPleasing stretch marks which tend to bother me. I searched for several solutions online – Most of the products suggested by experts either had mineral oil as an ingredient or weren’t suitable to be used during pregnancy time. That’s when I discovered this Indian house hold brand – Wild Organic Home.
Wild Organic Home products are nothing fancy – Simple packaging using some of the powerful Indian Ayurvedic Ingredients. Now, that’s amazing right. I remember bathing using turmeric and milk ubtan during my childhood days. Those times were truly magical and a whole lot of fun with grandma grinding and making raw turmeric paste or dried turmeric powder and mixing it with several ingredients to make ubtans and medicinal pastes that worked wonders on the body. These days, anything and everything that claims to be natural is not so. They come with no ingredient list or partial list that can’t be trusted at all. I discovered Wild Organic Home at a time when I had totally gave up on ‘natural’ claiming products. But, Somehow the minimal ingredient list and great reviews made me wanted to try them. It was during that time the lovely Founder, Evangelist contacted me to gift me few products from her product range.
As I mentioned these products in the post are #gifted to me. But, my opinion is strongly my own experience of using the products. Before I start my review, Let me also remind you that natural ingredients – might not suit everyone. some of you might be allergic to certain ingredients. So, it’s always good to patch test and wait for 24 hours to see how your skin reacts to the product.
I got sent four products from their range
- Curcumin + Sesame Skin Lightening Oil
- Rosemary & Lavender Lipbalm & Lipscrub
- Coffee Beans & Vanilla Beans Face Pack

In Turkish, the word “ayca” means the rising new moon- a time considered magical to begin, create, cultivate and develop. I got introduced to this wonderful brand ‘Ayca’ which is a luxury bath and wellness brand that creates products using all natural ingredients and traditional Indian home remedies. For a nature lover like me, their products were ‘love at first sight’.
Ayca was founded by Mallyeka Watsa and Himani Singh. Ayca’s recipes have been passed down from Mallyeka’s great grandmother, and use only the purest ingredients, with a commitment to “preserve the ancient crafts and offer a holistic approach to refresh, replenish, and revitalize.”
The past Year, I have been on a shopping spree spending a lot on makeup only to realise I got few skin care luxuries. I was looking to buy some Spa range of products for weekly pampering routine. I saw this wonderfully curated Spa-Care range of products along with a beautiful large cosmetic bag. The moment I saw the picture and details of this kit on my dear friend Ash of Ms Tantrum I knew I had to get it. It was so tempting to leave it behind. Especially, when this kit had all full sized products.
Presenting ‘The Spa Edition’ Luxury gift set – Packed with 6 full size products from loyal brands, it’s got everything you need to help you sit back, relax and rejuvenate both yourself and your skin.
Indian skincare market is flooded with products that are formulated, developed and tested in western countries. These countries don’t face the harsh abuse from pollution, heat and the UV that our skins face everyday. For Indian Skin, melanin production is hyperactive because of pollution, dust and UV. Even the luxury skincare brands in India do not specifically cater to issues we deal with
Our Indian Skin tend to produce more quantity of melanin due to the harsh environment that we live in – dust, pollution and UV damage everything takes a toll on our skin. Dr Sheth’s products contain higher quantities of actives which are specially formulated for Indian skin. The ingredients list for these products are really awesome. Especially, the Vitamin C, kojic acid,Vitamin A, hyaluronic acid, Niacinamide etc. I honestly feel this brand’s like ‘The Ordinary’ brand version from India!
In this post I am featuring the Dr Sheth’s luxury skincare products that are specially designed for our Indian skin. Dr. Sheth’s products contain higher quantities of actives, which are scientifically proven and created for Indian skin. All of the products from the brand are formulated by Dr Rekha Sheth who is India’s first Cosmetic Dermatologist and she launched her own line of skincare products formulated ESPECIALLY for Indian skin.Who else know our skin better than the expert herself, that we need protection from much more than the UV and that our Indian genes cause our skins to be more sensitive to pigmentation.
Tested on a variety of Indian skin and is sure a solution to all our known skincare problems related to pigmentation and sun damage. Read more to find out whether I like this range or not. I tried and tested these products for over two months before I am up with this review.
Looking for a solution to the biggest skincare concern – Blackheads and Clogged Pores ? Murad Skincare for rescue
How many times have you stared at yourself in the mirror while putting the makeup on. Are you somebody who got rid of blushes because you felt – ‘Blushers in general’ was emphasizing your pores making them appear larger.
Blackheads and Clogged Pores are the worst enemies of everyone. In simple words – blackhead is a sebum build-up, dead skin cells, bacteria, and dirt. This is a plug that can grow in size and expand the pore walls, making a pore appear larger.
A blackhead appears on skin like a dark spot. The spot can be tiny, barely visible (like the size of a pin) or quite large and visible. Blackheads are most common on the nose. You can also see them on the cheeks, chin, forehead etc. In today’s post – I am sharing my most loved and most favorite skincare products that help get rid of these worst enemies for that smooth and firm clear skin.
WHO understands this better than Dr. Murad himself – every skin is different, so needs different care to address and improve skin concerns. Murad Pore Reform skin care products are designed to help clear and prevent clogged pores, whiteheads and blackheads. These specially formulated products are targeted to treat clogged pores and blackheads by extracting existing clogs and thereby prevent future blackheads as well.
