Vitamin C has always been my favorite and I have always been a fan of Vitamin C serum! I used to make it at home but this time I tried Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum that is made with natural ingredients!
Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum costs Rs 1295 for 30ml! BUY ONLINE
Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum comes in a cardboard box packaging with all the information printed over it! The actual product comes in a dark brown glass bottle with a dropper lid! The dropper lid is very convenient to use and the bottle can be easily carried around in a bag with no fear of leakage or spillage!
The serum is clear with absolutely no smell! It is very light and does not feel sticky or greasy! I usually face stickiness issue with most of the Vitamin C products but this one feels very light and gets absorbed in a jiff! I simply take 3-4 drops of Vitamin C serum and apply it on my cleansed face! It gets absorbed quickly and I feel I have nothing on! I then follow it up with a moisturizer! I have combination skin and I do feel the need to moisturize my skin each time I wash my face!
I have been using Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum for 2 weeks and my skin feels very smooth and glowing! I do not have fine lines but it helps in reducing fine lines and hyper pigmentation too! It suits all skin types including my acne prone skin!
I use this serum only at night time as I have very sensitive skin and could not risk sunburn! I use it at bedtime and my skin feels so bright and healthy the next day! You MUST use a sunscreen during day time whenever you use vitamin C!
- Travel friendly packaging!
- Makes skin smooth and bright!
- It is age defying and brightening serum!
- Prevents ageing!
- Dropper is very easy to use!
- Does not break out the skin!
- Free from parabens and mineral oil!
- A bit pricey!
Overall I loved Vya Naturals Vitamin C Serum! It is lightweight and makes skin smooth and even! It removes acne scars, dark spots and redness! It also reduces fine lines and wrinkles! I would definitely recommend it to everyone!
Today I am going to review a very innovative, easy to use and effective product that I have loving lately. It's Tem-Ki Skin and Nails. It is a tool for the care of hands, feet and nails. The brand is based in Portugal and Belgium.
Tem-Ki skin costs €82.28/ Rs 6000 approx (after discount) that includes 1 ergonomic handle, 1 sponge head, 1 normal head, 10 abrasive disks (grit 1), 10 abrasive disks (grit 2) and 10 abrasive disks (grit 3).
You can also purchase the kit of 3 sponge heads that cost €10.02/ Rs 800 approx (after discount) to reduce the frequency of changes of disks and make the process easier.
If you already own the tool, you buy Tem-Ki Nail disks that cost €10.56/ Rs 800 approx (after discount). If you are looking for Tem-Ki Nails tool then you will 10 abrasive disks of grit 1,2 and 3 each!
Tem-Ki is a multi function tool and can be used to treat hands, feet and nails by using different disks. It has ergonomic handle and an extra head. It works with 2 normal or rechargeable batteries that are not included in the package and you will have to buy separately. The vibrating head has a Velcro to attach the disks.
Tem-Ki Skin helps you achieve smooth and soft skin on your hands and feet. Disk 1 is for deep calluses, disk 2 is for callosities and disk 3 is for exfoliation. I have soft hands but with baby these days my palms are getting drier. All I do is take exfoliator and use disk 3 on my palms and hands. It feels very relaxing and gives such a soft and smooth effect to the skin. Follow it up with a hand cream. My hands had never felt this soft.
In the same way, you can use Tem-ki for feet. My feet has gone super dry with loads of dead skin and Tem-ki has helped in getting back my smooth feet. I use disk 3 and apply exfoliator and move the tool all over the feet including heels. It removes all dead skin cells and makes feet soft and smooth. You can also use it to smoothen out toe nail but make sure you do it once in 3-4 months.
Tem-ki Nails is used to shape nails, remove ridges and smoothen out the nail surfaces. Use the disk 1 to shape nails, exfoliate the surface of the nail skin and remove the ridges on the nails. Remove the dust using a cotton pad. Disk 2 is used to make sure the surface of the nails is really smooth and lastly disk 3 is moved 3-6 times to give finishing to the nails. Use he shining block and your nails are salon ready.
I have not tried using the nail disks but have got amazing results with skin and feet. I would highly recommend it to everyone.
Tem-ki ships worldwide and I was not charged with custom duty.
As the summer season starts, I use foundations only on occasion and BB cream and CC cream take it's place. Today I am going to review Pond's White Beauty All in One BB+ Cream.
Pond's White Beauty All in One BB+ Cream costs Rs 165 for 18g. BUY ONLINE
The BB cream comes in a pink silver cardboard box packaging with all the information printed over it. The actual product comes in a sleek white tube with a silver screw top lid. The tube looks really good for the price and can be easily carried around in a bag.
Though the BB cream comes in only one shade but I feel it would suit all Indian skin tones. After cleansing, toning and moisturizing my face, I apply a small amount of BB cream all over my place and blend it using my fingers. It blends easily and does not leave streaky lines behind. It matches my skin tone and gives a healthy glow to it. It hides minor imperfections and spots and evens out the skin. I have oily, combination skin and it does not feel oily or greasy on my skin. I love using it on everyday basis when I do not like using foundations. Though I won't say it makes skin fair but with regular usage, I can definitely notice a healthy glow on my skin post wash.

I have always adored Organic Harvest products and I love their happy lips lip balm. I have reviewed two of the variants here and here. Today I am going to review the new year launched Organic Harvest Happy Lips Lip Balm that come in square packaging instead of egg shape.
The lip balms come in square packaging with a click to open and close lid. The packaging is really cute and stand out among all other products. The lip balm comes in 4 variants and I have hibiscus color lip balm and green tea high gloss lip balm.
Organic Harvest Hibiscus Color Lip balm is red in color while Green Tea High Gloss Lip Balm is light green in color. Both the lip balms come in square shaped plastic packaging which is easy to open and close. The lip balm is egg or done shaped and looks similar to eos lip balms.
The Organic Harvest Hibiscus Color Lip Balm is tinted lip balm that gives slight red tint to your lips. I have pigmented lips so the color is very lightly visible on my lips. It is very moisturizing yet feels light on the lips. My lips stay hydrated the whole day though I love reapplying it.
The Organic Harvest Green Tea High Gloss Lip Balm is a clear lip balm with a very pleasant scent. It does add a bit of gloss to the lip but it is not a big gloss lip balm. It is infused with green tea oil and feels very moisturizing on the lips. It is same as that of Organic Harvest Hibiscus Color Lip Balm.
- Cute packaging!
- Very moisturizing to the lips.
- Free of parabens, mineral oil and beeswax!
- Mild and pleasant scent.
- Contains organic ingredients!
- Keeps lips moisturized for a long time.
- The colored lip balm is not much tinted!
Overall, I love the newly launched Organic Harvest Happy Lips Lip Balms. They are very moisturizing yet feel light on the lips. I will definitely recommend it to everyone!
I had used few products of Khandige Organic and I must say their products are organic and effective. Though I hardly take food supplements but when I read about Khandige Organic Jivanamrtan I knew, I had to try it.
Khandige Organic Jivanamrtan comes in a pickle style clear glass bottle with a screw top lid. Everything arrived safely at my place and the glass bottle was not broken. All the information is printed on the bottle
The herbal jam is dark brown in color and contains all herbal ingredients like bilva, satavari, ashwagandha, amka, ghee, jaggery and many more effective ingredients. It tastes just like a chyawanprash and can be taken by kids as well. It has to be taken twice a day- 1 teaspoon for adults and 1/2 teaspoon for children. It can also be used as a jam on toast or bread. It has to be followed by warm milk or green tea.
Khandige Organic Jivanamrtan is rich in vitamin C and helps improve immunity. It helps children to cope with air pollution so if you have kids at your home then you must try it. It helps to fight cold and other allergies. It also improves digestion and activates taste buds. It does not contain preservatives or artificial colors!
I have been taking Khandige Organic Jivanamrtan for the last 2 weeks but since I am not so regular with it due to my one month old baby, I can't actually tell you the results but it does help me in keeping active all day and it tastes really good and not weird like other chyawanprash.
Would you like to try Khandige Organic Jivanamrtan?
