My experience :-

I always love to apply fruit juices on my face. So when I read its contents i immediately decided to buy one for myself. After application, causes a tingling sensation my face which goes after some time. The best part I liked about this pack is that it is an ayurvedic recipe with the goodness of perfect fruit juices which  lightens complexion, controls oil secretion, regulates moisture balance, lightens dark spots & gives a flawless glow to the skin. After washing my face looks fresh for hours. It does not over dry my face & keeps it well hydrated. Its inexpensive & very easy to use without making a mess (which I make at my home when I directly apply those liquid fruit juices ;) )


With regular use skin reclaims its soft, smooth, youthful tone & texture.

STEPS TO BEAUTIFUL & HEALTHY SKIN.


  • Start your day with 1-2 glasses of lukewarm water.
  • Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water everyday.
  • Do exercise / yoga for 30 mins, at least 5 times a week.
  • Follow the three step cleansing routine regularly. It includes :-

Cleansing : with a mild soap free facewash twice a day.

Toning : apply alcohol free astringent ( for oily skin) / toner (for normal- dry skin) once a day.

Moisturizing :- apply a light moisturizer on your skin according to your skin type. People with oily skin must prefer a grease less moisturizer / cream or you can also use face gels.

  • Scrubbing :- exfoliate dead skin cells , blackheads & whiteheads with a gentle exfoliating scrub twice a week.
  • Apply fruit juices such as lemon juice, orange juice, tomatoes on your face & neck regularly. You can also use mashed papaya or mashed strawberries pack for your skin. Aloe vera  juice can also be used for a soft supple young looking skin.
  • Apply a skin firming & rejuvenating face pack that are available in markets once a week. Or you can mix 1 tblspn of fuller's earth (multani mitti powder) along with sandalwood powder & rose water & use it as a skin firming mask.
  • Take regular bath with a soap free shower gel & lukewarm / cold water. This will keep you fresh & will maintain the vitality of the rest of your body. Moisturize your body skin also.
  • Give an oil massage to your body with olive oil / almond oil / wheatgerm oil every 15 days, leave it for 30 mins, then take a bath. This will improve blood circulation & keep the body smooth, glowing & healthy.
  • Apply undereye creams every night for prevention & treatment of fine lines & dark circles.
  • Apply a night cream every night on your face & neck according to skin type & condition. It will fulfill the needs of your skin & repair it during your beauty sleep.
  • For 20+ age groups have a cleanup every month. For 25 + have a facial according to your skin type in a hygienic parlor (I used the word hygienic because some parlors don’t take proper care of it & that will result in infection on your skin ).
  • If you apply makeup don’t forget to deep cleanse your skin before going to bed otherwise it may result in ugly breakouts the next day.
  • Have a vitamins & fiber rich diet.


Well apart from these things mental calmness, happiness, self confidence & a sweet smile will give you that charm & glow on your face which can never go off.

So all the beautiful ladies & girls STAY HAPPY, STAY CONFIDENT, KEEP SMILING & KEEP RADIATING.

HIMALAYA PURIFYING MUD PACK REVIEW.


This pack is a unique formulation of natural ingredients that refreshes & rejuvenates the facial skin by absorbing excess oil & removing impurities.

I have an oily skin so I do prefer mud packs for it. I’ve used many of the himalaya’s products, found them effective, so decided to give a try to its purifying mud pack.

It comes in a squeeze tube.

Price :- Rs. 160 for 200 g



Active ingredients :-

Walnut :- removes blackheads & dead cells.

Fuller’s earth :- removes deep seated impurities.

Mineral clay :- improves circulation & makes skin soft & tender.

Usage :-

Slather generous amount of this pack on cleansed face & neck. Leave it for 20 mins & remove it with the help of wet towel/ sponge or directly rinse with water.
For best results use once a week.

My experience :-

This mask do controls excess oil on my face. Gives a fresh look to my skin for hours. Well, I didn’t find any reduction or prevention from blackheads but overall I found this mask effective for my skin.  There’s a slight tingling sensation after application which goes after some time ( For me its just for few seconds). It did not break me out.  Removal of this mask is a bit difficult with plain water (it requires a lot of water & massage for removal) , so  its better to use a wet towel or sponge for this purpose.
