We just stepped into the New Year. Most of us are in a spending spree, making the most of EOS sales. Well, why not invest in something natural and which have proven results. In this post, I am featuring my top 5 favorites from Fiducia Botanicals that double up as stocking stuffers for this holiday season. If you are a regular reader of my blog. You’d probably know by now, what are my absolute favorites.
’Fiducia Botanicals’ was founded by Pallavi Parwani in 2018. The brand is result of her conscious decision to make best organic skincare without compromising on ingredients or quality. Each ingredient is clean, safe and nature derived. She uses authentic and unadulterated carrier oils, essentials oils and botanical extracts to make this wonderful line of natural skincare, bath and body products.
You can checkout my previous review on almost all their skincare products here. In today’s review – I am featuring some of my current favorites from the brand.
These days, We all are concerned a lot about eating the right food. Starting from the supermarket shelves, we reach out for products labeled “gluten-free” and “all-natural.” etc. Well, When you think that one must eat foods that contain natural ingredients; shouldn’t the same apply to your skincare? Most skincare products available today have parabens in them. Though, cosmetics regulatory has accepted to include parabens in skincare products for many years, recent researches have shown that exposure to parabens may cause reproductive issues, and are also linked to an increased risk of cancer. It’s important to look for skincare that’s free of harmful chemicals, irritants, preservatives, allergens etc.In today’s post I am introducing another fabulous Indian Skincare brand I came across.
Fiducia Botanicals is an all natural handcrafted Indian skincare brand which focuses on the use of high performance active ingredients, They have a variety of skincare products to suit every skintype and address every skin concern.
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
We all love travels and trips, don’t we? When it comes to preparing your bag for a holiday or a getaway, no matter how well organized you make a checklist. You will always end up forgetting some essential product. If it’s a international holiday, You’d also have to take care of the amount of skincare bottles or tubs that you can carry on-board. It should exactly match to that of allowed skincare onboard as per your airline. Having all your skin saviours or favorites in under 100ml for the travel, Often it becomes difficult to pack everything you want.
In this post, I am introducing a skincare set that is perfect for travels. This “Mini Series” of ‘Tier For Teens’ skincare, exclusively made in New Zealand fits your handbag perfectly and these essentials come in generous 50ml bottles that is within airline permissible limits!
Do you have a sensitive skin like me ? Are you someone who is obsessed about skincare and love reading a lot about skincare ingredients ? I discovered this brand ‘pure suds’ in 2015; if you are a regular reader of my blog, you might have read the review from ‘pure suds‘ already on blog. Now, ‘pure suds’ got rebranded to ‘Pure Bubbles Soapery’. All thanks to @bhavana_ranka , Founder of @pure_bubbles_soapery for sending me a set of skincare products that suits my skin type.
None of these products contain any harsh chemicals like parabens, SLS, formaldehyde or phthalates which are considered to be one of the most toxic and most used ingredients in conventional cosmetic products. All of these #handmade bath and body treats are made in small batches using pure, eco friendly & bio degradable ingredients. Creation in small batches ensure the quality and freshness.
While essential oils are really good for skin. It’s not meant to be used directly on skin. I love aroma therapy oils and I have been mixing and matching various oils with the carrier oil – almond or coconut since so many years now. Essential oils penetrate through the outer layers of the skin, and heal from within.
Essential oils, Though they are proven to be wonderful on skin. if not used correctly, you’d end up with rashes and burns. One must not apply undiluted oils directly to skin. They are very concentrated and may cause chemical burns, rashes and allergies if used undiluted. I recently discovered this wonderful skincare brand that specially make oil blends to address various skin concerns. I was gifted two of their best sellers to try.
GOLD ELIXIR – ENRICHED WITH 24K GOLD*
SIRONA – DARK CIRCLES SERUM (NIGHT)*
Washing your face with the wrong kind of products can leave your face looking dull, wrinkled and tired. And this includes soap. Most of the soaps cannot be used on face because of the harsh chemicals present in them. While most soaps, that claim to be safe works perfectly well for the rest of your body, it might not suit your sensitive/acne prone skin type. Skin on your face is very delicate and can easily start looking damaged if proper products are not used. Last soap I remember using on my face was Clinique Soap which didn’t work for my face and I stopped using it halfway.
Two weeks back I received these handmade goodness from Soap Square. Soap Square is a organic and natural brand which make luxury handcrafted soaps.
Soap Square make the soaps with careful consideration for your skin’s needs using essential oils, glycerin and natural ingredients. These vegetarian soaps contain real fruit extracts and no parabens or petrochemicals were used in their production. You can choose from the wide variety of 100% herbal soaps to pamper your skin with!
In this post, I am reviewing 2 of the soaps I received – Peppermint with Aloe butter & French Lavender with Shea butter

When it comes to Bath & Body products, I am very choosy and would only pick a handful of products that have rave reviews or which are more on a natural ingredient side.

What more one need to love a brand ? Yes, I absolutely adore her products and I have been a regular buyer since 2 years now. In this post I am going to share my experience using a wonderful product. Its a soap – But not a bathing bar, not a body wash/gel – Its Butter Creme Whipped Soap – Wow, one of its kind, marvelous smelling happiness in a jar I would say!
Body scrubs exfoliate dead skin cells and impurities from your skin leaving your skin feeling silky smooth. Coconut is known for its soothing and nourishing properties. Roses act as a natural skin astringent for they effectively improve the tone and texture of your skin while pampering it. Like coconuts, roses are also anti-bacterial and antiseptic and heal skin irritations. I have seen several DIY blog posts featuring body scrubs with rose and coconut. But, me as a lazy girl never bothered (read – “no patience”) to try out the DIYs. That’s when I found this body polish with (Coconut & Rose) from Gia Bath & Body Works.
