My Recent Mini Haul from Himalaya

My Recent Mini Haul from Himalaya

Hey everyone,

I know its been long since I have posted on the blog due to some personal reasons, but I would like to thank you all for supporting and following the blog which in turn reminds me of hosting a giveaway soon.

Recently I got a little skincare stuff from Himalaya. We all know that Himalaya is a natural brand that offers different skincare and body care products. What I really love about them is that they are easy to use, give great results yet on a budget.

So let get on what I bought from the Himalaya store recently-

Processed with VSCO with a5 preset

  1. Himalaya Refreshing Cleansing Milk-

This was a repurchase. I like using this when I skin looks extremely tired and dull. Just take a little of it on a cotton swab and clean your face with it and then wash with plain water. You will see how it removes the dirt and oiliness from the skin so effectively.


2.  Himalaya Cocoa Butter Intensive Body Lotion-

I have used this before and this was a repurchase again. It is a very soft textured cocoa butter lotion and the best part is that it has a mild fragrance. Though it takes a little time to absorb but the skin feels soft after applying it

3. Himalaya Orange Face Scrub-

Honestly I will be using this for the first time. Recently I feel my face has got a bit of tanning so I picked this up. Will definitely review this after using it .


4. Himalaya Orange Peel Off Mask-

I am really fond of  this product and this is my third tube that I have purchased. I had an impression that peel off masks are messy  so I avoided using them, but this changed my entire perception of it . A definite must try. Review coming up soon.

In all , I got these products so that’s a mini haul from Himalaya. Do comment below and let us know what would you like to purchase from this brand.

Hey all,

Keeping your face clean is such an integral part of the regime. But do you think is that enough ??

I am sure your answer would be a NOOOOO. To keep our skin refreshed and glowing we try all the ways we can. Right from going to the parlour to following a CTM routine. Yet most of the times our skin remains dull.

We all feel a need to buy the products available in the market  and often they do contain a lot of chemicals and can cause harm to the skin. SO what is the solution then?? Our grandmothers and mothers have always had the skin secrets . They hardly felt the urge to go to the parlour and all they would rely on was home made stuff.

Acne is a big issue , it occurs at any age and at any occasion The face packs I use are very basic and have worked on my skin.So lets go the natural way to keep your acne at bay.

My Skin Type: 

To start with I have always mentioned having Oily Acne Prone Skin. Acne keeps on visiting me when it feels like. So I always follow a CTM routine and use these natural face packs at least twice a week.

Ingredients- Multani Mitti and Rosewater.

Preparation: Mix One tablespoon of multani mitti with one tablespoon of rosewater.

How to use: Wash your face with a mild cleanser and pat dry with a towel. Mix  these in the mentioned way and apply the pack with a face pack brush. Keep it for 10-15 mins and wash it.

Now if you wondering why I am mentioning a face pack brush here, It applies the pack evenly and  is  hygienic to use. You can buy Vega Face Pack Brush which is cheap and effective to use.

How will it benefit the skin:-

Multani Mitti is a form of mud which is high in magnesium . When applied on acne , it helps in controlling the oil and reducing acne.

Rosewater is multipurpose , it can be used in various ways. It refreshes the skin and makes it bright.


2) Neem Powder, Multani Mitti, Sandalwood Powder and Rosewater.

Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Mask

4 Dec

Lets start this post with a simple question… How important is face mask  in your skincare regime?? In my opinion, it is extremely important…   My skin type is oily with a bit of acne and some blemishes here and there.. I have always been looking for an effective mask for my skin type… And guess what?? I finally found it… Yipppeeeee… I am sure you guessed it right, so let’s see the review


Eau Thermale Avene Cleanance Mask

Something from the Avene website about Avene Cleanance Mask-

Cleansing, exfoliating and absorbing mask for oily and blemish-prone skin. The unique formula offers in-depth cleansing so skin can regain a clear and healthy complexion. Blemishes are reduced, leaving skin smooth and shine-free.



Avene Thermal Spring Water (Avene Aqua). Triethylhexanoin. Kaolin. Cetearyl Alcohol. Glyceryl Stearate. Glycolic Acid. Water (Aqua). Cyclomethicone. Sodium Hydroxide. Polyethylene. Ceteareth-33. Caprylic/Capric Glycerides. Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891). Zinc Gluconate. Bisabolol. Cetrimonium Bromide. Fragrance (Parfum). Glyceryl Laurate. Pyridoxine Hcl. Salicylic Acid. Xanthan Gum.

Price and Availability-  It is priced at Rs 1200 for 50 ml. You can buy it here.

What I think about this mask-

I have almost used up the half tube of this mask. This mask comes in a white tube form and is very convenient to use. The consistency of the mask is creamy and white in colour, but it has tiny beads, so it works both like a mask and a scrub too… It exfoliates the skin and soothes it too.. The main ingredients used in this are Kaolin or white clay and Avene Thermal Spring Water. I follow the instructions on the tube for applying this mask i.e  I apply it to slightly moist face and leave it for almost five minutes. Then I gently massage and wash my face.. So what are the results actually.. After using this, my skin looks brighter and cleaner.. My acne has reduced a bit, but it has been most effective on my open pores.. My pore size has reduced with regular usage of this mask.. To be precise, I use this mask only twice a week.. But still I am really happy with the results.


The Conclusion-

This is my Hg product.. If you have oily-acne prone skin with open pores, it is a must try for you then.. It is at the expensive side, but its worth every penny..

Let me know which is your HG Face Mask?? Also what you think about this product??

Properties: Honey has antibacterial properties and is non toxic. When applied on skin, usually it gives a bright effect.

Turmeric fights against acne and other skin conditions and gives glow to the skin.

Mix these two ingredients and make a paste. Apply this on the skin and keep it for 5- 7 minutes and wash it. You will see a visible difference in your skin tone. This face mask can be applied twice in a week

So treat your face with this face pack for a glowing skin.
